Buying a Property Listed for Rent
« on: July 14, 2016, 12:04:04 PM »
There's a house that I noticed is for rent.  It was last sold in 2014 for $260K, and it is now listed for rent at $1,850.  I have to see it first, but I think I'd like to buy the place based on its location.

The number in the listing is for a management company.  Can I just call it and say I'd like to talk to the owner about it?  Or will they not hand over the owner's info so easily?  Or should I call as if I was interested in renting it and see it first?  Then ask to talk to the owner?  Not sure the best way to approach this...

You could look up the tax records and figure out how to contact the owner that way.
