Well, for starters the deals have yet to be closed so keep your fingers crossed for me…
What I did was, searched for abandoned properties…
Then I went to the court house. In NYC you can pull up all of the information for your prop. via it’s block and Lot… Once you get there just ask a guard to show you where you can go to get the block and lot!! This is the key… In addtion, to the fact that if you live in Brooklyn, you can pull up information for the different Borough’s at the Brooklyn Court house. There is a special computer set aside do this. (Side note, there is a Gray Dog that is always there to help you, be observant, ask and remember to TIP). I found out where the bills (ex. water, tax etc) were sent to and well mailed a letter to the address.
The other way is I searched the pre-forclosure and forclosure list in Clerk Superior office. That’s the building across the street from the Brooklyn, Marriot. Those of you from the NYC area should know what I’m talking about… These are the ways, I went about about to find my Properties… Feel Free to email me with anyother questions… I’m still a newbie but I don’t mind trading/sharing information… The deals are here in New York but you have to research and be persistent!!!
