Where to start …
Go read everything by Joe Kaiser in the Money Making Ideas and How To Articles on this site.
Go to the courthouse … the case number should be in the posting that you saw. Pull the file and find out what’s what. Next the recorder’s office, find all the encumberences … at 11K against 125K this could be a small second or third or whatever that will be subject to an existing first. You need to know.
As to finding them … see if there are any “little” junior liens that you might be able to buy/option very cheap … that will give you an interest in the property and you can run a credit bureau and or skip trace someone.
It may sound funny, but the middle of June is a long time. Get busy and report back.
