Property Tax Sales For Little Money.

Todays Date: December 11, 2018

Each year, thousands of interested people want to invest in property but don’t have the money to do so. Even in a tough housing market, where homes are selling for thousands of dollars less than market value, purchasing property can still be expensive.

However, there is another option that many people fail to utilize and that is purchasing property through property tax sales. This is an excellent way to purchase property, sometime for literally pennies on the dollar, and purchasing the place of your dreams.

So, how does a home get into the position of being sold as a tax sale? Well, it is actually very simple. Someone purchase a piece of property. Sometimes they build a home on it or sometimes they use it for raising animals, or simply to appreciate in value. However, something happens and they cannot pay the taxes that they own on their property (there are property taxes in every state and anyone who owns property must pay those taxes). The local government then contacts those individuals and gives them the opportunity to pay.

All throughout the process, the local government gives the individuals plenty of opportunities to pay. The government wants their money so they will allow payments to be made while they put a lien on the property (so the owners can’t sell it without paying off their debt first). Once the property enters into property tax sales, then that is a sure sign that the owner is extremely delinquent in their payments and the local government has no other option on how to reclaim the money owed.

Most of these properties are put into property tax sales auctions. These auctions are open to the public; however, it is not always easy for a typical person to find these auctions, they have to know where to look. Additionally, the auction of the property will start at the amount owed on the property and then increase from their, so there is no guarantee that you are going to get a piece of property for an insanely low amount of money, but it does happen a lot.

Once you pay the taxes owed on the property (or the amount that the auction comes to), you receive the deed for the property and you owe it free and clear. Just don’t forget that you too will have to pay taxes on the property you buy or your will end up in the same situation as the previous owners.
