I buy mailing lists for target marketing.... active adult community homes to be sold require a mailing list of 55+ to 80 years old who own a home.... that's how I sold out several 55+ communities with direct mail marketing for open house events.... just saying!

and I buy them from Experian...

We did way back when, but no need to do so now.  I think Barbara Todaro gave you a great answer.

I know when I was in Banking I could order list for people who had mortgages and high balances on credit cards. I would phone them and get HELOC loans.  I'm sure there's other list for real estate too. Get my list now from title for farming.  Good luck!

We have never purchased a mailing list.  Like Lynnea Miller said, we have gotten targeted lists from the Title Company on a few occasions when doing specific target farming, which is rare for us. -Kasey

The mailing lists that are best depend on your target market, goals and objectives.
