I am VERY new to this I have read Dean's book and have been driving around a lot looking for a deal. I think I have found one, but I am not sure of the next step. I looked on line and in the public records found that there was a lis pendens filed at the end of 2008, also a tax lien on the property file in April of 2009 for about 2,500.00. I did find out the owner either did own or does own a convenience store here and another home address in town. It doesn't appear that the property has been foreclosed on yet. Is this a situation where I should try to contact the owner to find out the story, or contact the bank?
Any help would be appreciated. I hope you all are having a wonderful evening.
