  • Tony Martinez on Training Module 1Several tax liens may be purchased on the same property for subsequent tax years. It depends upon how long the redemption period is. For example: In a state that has a 3 year redemption period 3 tax liens, one for each year, may be purchased. These liens could be purchased by the same investor or by different ones. When the property is redeemed, regardless of how many investors have purchased liens, all liens and interest are paid. If the lien does not get redeemed then there would be a foreclosure process as per the County and State statutes. Usually the first lien holder has first rights to foreclose and so on. Whoever forecloses on the property to take the deed would be responsible to pay all other tax lien holders.
  • Tony Martinez on Training Module 1You can find Tax Sale Calendars on the ULS. The Ultimate Listing Service (ULS) is our proprietary website which will give you information on upcoming tax sales, detailed State and County information, and valuable resources to help you invest profitably and safely. Check it out at Assignment purchasing is when an investor buys an over-the-counter lien from the County. These are liens that did not get purchased at the auction and are now made available through the county usually on a first come, first served basis. The interest rate that is offered is usually the highest rate that the State allows. Depending on the county, sometimes if the lien has been held by the county for some time then the redemption period may be reduced substantially.
  • Kyle McCullers on Training Module 1What is the best properties to invest in?
  • Brad on Training Module 1For someone with more limited funds and purchases a TLC with a redemption period of 1 year, if they are not able to purchase the TLC the following year and there has yet to be a redemption, that person would just sit and wait until the triggering event? Also losing out on their ability to foreclose if necessary?
  • Tony Martinez on Training Module 1With a lien you may collect the interest return when the property owner redeems the property. Or, if it does not get redeemed you may foreclose on it and take possession. At that point you would have significant equity in the property and you could sell it, rent it, or hold on to it for additional appreciation.
  • Tony Martinez on Training Module 1Redemption periods are determined by the county or taxing entity conducting the sale. These periods can be anywhere from a few months long to 4 years. The property owner can redeem anytime within the redemption period. The investor receives payment upon redemption.
  • Tony Martinez on Training Module 1After the video series, some people feel like they would like to pursue investing on their own with no additional training. Other people prefer a personalized training course or perhaps access to additional tools and resources to help along the way. Ether way, we are happy to help you get going!
  • Tony Martinez on Training Module 1You can lose money if you buy a TLC or deed on a worthless property. In that case, it is unlikely to be redeemed and/or you wouldn’t be able to recover your money by foreclosing and selling. This can be avoided by doing your due diligence before you buy.
