talk to the neighbors; they’ll be glad to see an eyesore removed or transformed into a livable dwelling - they want to bring up the value of their homes.
visit your county tax assesor; even though no one lives at the property, a tax bill is being generated on it, and the assessor’s office may have the address where the owner lives
leave a flyer/letter/business card at the property; you never know, they (the owner) may come back!
Just a few thoughts - maybe some of the heavy hitters can provide more info…any ideas, boys?
