Hi guys,
I have the physical address of the property but I want to know the name of owner, the amount of mortgage and the bank's name? Also who do I contact at the bank directly for foreclosure properties listings?

Try Property Shark for most of the information about a property. They have detailed property reports, foreclosure and for sale listings, comparable tools, and maps. I have always found the info reliable, they just cover the whole country, so it depends where you are located as to how useful this site will be for you.
Good luck

call your preferred title company and request a copy of the deed of trust. it will give you the owner, amount of debt, name of the bank and contact person

If you want to find the information yourself and learn something in the process, Google the county and state with "GIS" ( Geographic Information Systems). If the county has one you an find out the owner and usually a book and page to find the Deed. Deeds of trust are typically recorded just after the deed although sometimes they are separated by a few documents. If you get the owners name, just do a search on the Register of Deeds site for Deeds of Trust under his name. It will take some time but you'll get proficient at digging out all sorts of information if you become familiar with these types of online public records sites.

It all depends on where you are located, every county is slightly different and some counties won't release any information due to privacy concerns. However, a title company is a great resource pretty much everywhere.
As far as foreclosures ... good luck. Most larger banks have outsourced their foreclosures so the loans/properties are being serviced by large companies out of state. They are very slow to respond (if at all). I was tracking a home that was foreclosed. When I call the REO department at the bank, they had no records of the home. Two weeks later the property was listed by a local agent via a foreclosure servicing company on the other side of the US.
