Track down the last known owner. Even if a home has been abandoned, someone may still legally own it. Get as much information as you can from the county office and try to contact the owner. If you're successful, ask the owner if he is willing to sell the property.What is an abandoned real estate?
An abandoned property is usually a property whose original owner is no longer in possession of the home, and due to financial difficulties the house is run down and in need of repair. However, some abandoned properties turn out to be in good condition, with an owner who wants to unload it before foreclosure.
