Nice. I also check the garbage cans. If there is old garbage in them then the odds are it’s a fresh spot.

Give abandonment a reason for its sacrificial reclamation to nature. Love it. Remember it. Take a picture. Share it. Leave the decay to nature.

Weird to see the ride on lawn mower there in such a clean state but it must have been recent.

For me it would be:

1. Banners in the street announcing redevelopment meeting
2. Smashed out windows
3. Curtains hung around it

- Cracked, empty, and overgrown parking lots
- Damaged roofing, especially with plants growing out of it
- Broken windows

Not all abandoned buildings have these three things, but any building exhibiting these three things is almost certainly abandoned.

Water damage, broken windows, and unkept greenery are also good signs.

Nah, those are like mold, they'll appear anyway.

Over here a lot of the time if a larger site or a business of some kind has just closed and before (or if) they end up putting a fence up around it they will block off the car park entrances or access roads with dirty great big concrete slabs to stop 'travelling folk' camping illegally in the grounds, seeing one of those behind a gate is like a moth to a flame for me.

There's a school in my area that's abandoned but couldn't be in better shape. It could pass off as an active school. The indicator is that no one ever parks there; try to look out for buildings that never have cars parked outside of them every time you drive around. Make sure they don't have any signs indicating that it's for sale or anything, though.

And even that doesn't neccesarily mean it's not abandoned. I've seen a few abandoned locations with "for sale" signs- but the real estate firm pretty much gave up on selling them and stopped maintaining them years ago.

Vehicles can be very telling if there are any on the property. Are the tires flat? What date does the inspection/registration sticker say? This last one can provide you pretty specific information if its available and it's pretty obvious that the vehicle in question wasn't just lawn art that's been sitting there longer than the place was abandoned.

Snow. I usually drive by places I'm scouting a few days after it snows to see if there's any tracks

Just use local news sources. They'll always say if something's closing, and if they don't then I'll just take a look myself. The worst that can happen is I accidentally get caught in a fully active building, because that's not too bad ;).

Don't forget footprints and shoveling, if you live in an area with snow. An unshoveled sidewalk can net the owner a major fine, so people tend to get that taken care of quickly. A shoveled sidewalk without footprints by the door or tire tracks in the driveway can be telling too.
