so my mom got a letter in the mail today, i didnt open it because it didnt have my name on it obviously. she used to live in this house and its still in her & my dad's name though they moved a few years ago. anyway she came over and told me to open it. it was a hand written letter from a "realtor" who claims theres a cash buyer that wants to buy this (MY) house. im sure its a scam, our house isnt even for sale. but WTF? my mom doesnt know this guy. im guessing its relatively easy to find out the person's name on the deed? because it was addressed to her.

You can google any address & find out who owns the home. The Realtor is just looking for listings he can get. If she isn't interested in selling just throw it away. I get them occasionally.

It could be a scam or it could be someone who is interested in the property. Growing up, we lived in a house and right across the road there was a pond. We didn't own that land but many people thought we did and there were several times that people would stop by our house interested in buying that piece of property. My dad would always refer them to the court house to find out the information on who owns that land.
