Let’s say I found a piece of land that I might be intersted in, how do I go buy finding the owner of the property?
First thing would be to look up the courthouse records. Many jurisdictions now have them available online.
try going to http://www.netronline.com/public_records.htm
choose the state, then the county
You can go to the towns registery of deeds(usaully a dollar per page around here), some are online like posted above. You could also have a local real estate agent get them for you if you work with one.
I recommend that you go to www.accurint.com
This is a service that I use and have had good results. There is no sign up fee and you pay by the hit.
