A tax deed sale is something that occurs in many cities and towns across the nation. It is a time where properties are actually sold for the amount of the taxes that our owed. These can be very lucrative sales for those that purchase these properties. They can get substantial deals as many of them are valued at much more than the cost of the taxes. You will want to focus on properties that are decades-old where the property taxes are based upon homes that were purchased when they were under $50,000. The value of those homes now could be hundreds of thousands of dollars, and if there are no liens on the property, or mortgages associated with the title of the property, you can make a substantial amount of money.
