With the current surge in demands of real estate property in countries like the United States, the value of acquiring an abandoned building cannot be overestimated. Most vacant property has low or no demand compared to the listed ones. The listed houses, according to research, do have up to 15 bids on the first day of listing. Most experienced real estate investors go for abandoned houses to avoid competition.

The problem with this choice is that finding the owner of such vacant property could be hard. Most traditional real estate tactics might not work in locating the owner except real estate skip tracing.

How to Identify an Abandoned Home

As an investor, you would want to define a potential investment opportunity by looking for signs of neglect. These are the signs of a vacant house:

Overgrown vegetation or lawn
Broken doors and windows
Trash around the building
Signs of fire or weather damage.
Based on intuition, a dilapidated house could have been abandoned too since the occupants would not want to leave their home unrepaired.
