TIPS & TRICKS:
Some Additional tips that will help you.
- Talk to neighbors who are outside. Ask them "Hey do you know anything about this house?" Many times neighbors can give you a lot of information about a property and they are usually willing to help. Sometimes, they even give you the owner's phone number. Neighbors don't want vacant houses in their neighborhood because it brings their property value down.
- If you drive around on trash day, you can see all of the properties that do not have their trash can pulled out. This means they are either on vacation, are vacant or have no trash! It is an easy way to see which properties are vacant.
- If there are alleys, driving around the back of houses can many times give more signs of vacancy. If you can see the backyard or back of the house, this usually helps show if a property is vacant/abandoned or not.
