Here is what I do when it comes to locating out of state owners…
After bird-dogging the area I look up the owners on my local County Appraisal District, CAD website.
Search Anywho.com for a phone number to call them. If that does not work then I mail them a letter inquiring about the vacant property.
If still no luck or the letter comes back undeliverable I then look them up at www.knowX.com. But I wait until I have a list of dead leads to do this. For $29.00 a day you can do unlimited searches for a full day. The downside to this site is that I cannot find unlisted #'s here.
If still no success then I contact the people over at www.deadleads.com. They will actually call around and try to contact the owner for you so you know you are getting accurate information and they are cheap to, $19.00.
This what I do and I have great success at it.
