Re: MLS info vs Redfin info

Is there a way to find out if there's an active loan on a house for example?

Re: MLS info vs Redfin info

Redfin can only display what the local MLS allows plus public data.  The MLS listing might include agent notes, homeowner contact information and other pertinent but non-public information.  

 

Most real estate agents have the ability to find information about mortgages. 

 

Most county websites do not allow online access to mortgage amounts and mailing addresses.

I believe the mortgage information is passed out by former lender or by whoever you contacted when you fished for a refin.

 

I am still receiving mails from lenders inviting me to refin on the primary I purchased 11 years ago, based on my original loan amount.

 

If they know I already switched to a 15-year fix and have only 5 years left on the loan, they would stop sending mails to me long time ago.

If you scroll thru the property history which is public info Redfin publishes for homes on the MLS, you can see re-finance amounts too
