Bob: if lender on record is getting paid on time, then the owners are probably keeping the property until they are ready to sell. If the loan falls behind, the property will probably foreclose.
Write a letter to the address of the property and see if it gets forwarded. Talk to everyone on the street. Did you try whitepages.com and google searches. Instead of obituaries did you try a social security death index search?
To be honest, the scenario you describes sounds like the owners may be intending to let the house foreclose or people who haven’t dealt with selling it yet. There are A LOT of dead leads in abandoned houses. Keep your eye on this one and make sure you have plenty more in the pipeline.
Just my experience here. Sincerely, Kristine
