It sounds to me like you should try and find a Realtor that you feel like you can work with.  We have the tools to check on the listings, find the owners, figure out the price, etc.

However, there are some tools that you can use to get an idea of what's happening with the property.  The county Assessor's websites are really great tools, and they'll usually lead you to ownership information.  The Maricopa County website is a lot more current than Pinal County

You can use the ownership info to find docs recorded against the property, and get at least an idea of what's going on.  

Best Regards,

Dear Kezzel:

A Realtor can tell you if you provide the address. Also, a Realtor can show you all other homes for sale right around this house for you to compare. The Realtor will be able to send you and email with pictures, details and map locations of all of the those homes.

It does not cost a buyer anything to use a Realtor and you have someone that will represent your best interests.

Exactly as Mrs, Halle suggested.  A local agent should be able to provide all that information for you in a very short amount of time.
