  • Are you being nosey or are you asking for yourself?
    Call your mortgage company and ask for a principle balance or payoff.
    If it's not your home, its none of your business.

  • You can only learn the last sale price of the home, which may not reflect what the buyer has borrowed.

  • i don't think you can. you might be able to find out how much it assessed for recently, or how much it sold for the last time it sold. you can check the public records for that info, i think..really not sure.

  • You can't unless it is a house you yourself own.

  • You can look up how much they paid, but there is no way to know how much of that they borrowed, or if they have more than one loan. I think you might be able to find out that information if you are looking in to buying a short sale, but you'd have to ask your realtor.
