First American Real Estate Solutions is a company that provides access to county tax records via online connection or through monthly CD-ROMs sent to you. There is also a powerful program that comes with the service that allows you to do sophisticated searches, such as finding out-of-state owners, finding a certain type of trust deed, performing comps, mapping properties on street or plat maps, etc. It isn’t cheap, but it’s worth every cent if you are going to be doing deals every month (in my opinion).
There are other services like this, such as dataquick. You can get more information by looking on their web-site, and then speaking to a sales rep. The office nearest you is listed at the following URL:
I’m not affiliated with them, but I just started using their service, and I’m VERY impressed. This CD contains ALL sales data for my county, not just the Realtor sales data that you find in the MLS. This is a service that caters to professional Real Estate businesses…title companies, forclosure listing services, appraisers, etc.
