Bank Foreclosure Auctions and Tax Sale Properties offer a way to acquire their homes at incredible prices, sometimes saving as much as 30% to 90% on the price of their home.
For first-time buyers or investors looking to profit from
buying, renting out or
flipping real estate, foreclosures,
preforeclosures and tax sales are the answer.
homes or property that are about to go into foreclosure. This is
where some of the best deals can be made, before they
are seen by every real estate broker and buyer on the planet.
These are generally negotiated directly with the owner, who is eager
to avoid the hassles of foreclosure.
lien and tax deed tax sale properties are also very lucrative investments. Tax liens certificates are risk free and simple because you don't actually take ownership of a property or home. Instead you provide a homeowner a loan, at a good interest rate, so they can pay their land taxes. It's risk free because if for any reason that homeowner defaults on any part of the loan you take immediate ownership of the house. This is how low-middle income people retain nice homes/properties with only a $1,000-$5,000 investment. Expired Tax Liens and Tax Deeds also cover defaulted land taxes, but the difference is you retain the home/property immediately. Further details can be found in the article Tax Sale Properties.

Government Auctions is a one-stop-shop
site which consistently has newest listings including
preforeclosures, foreclosures and tax sale properties (tax
liens and tax deeds). It also has
extensive non-government For Sale By Owner (FSBO) lists so you
have the widest range of discounted houses from the widest range of
sources, and never pay realtor fees again.
Listings - More
listings = good; fewer listings = bad. Two types of listings
included. The first is a list of every upcoming real estate auction
in your area from all bankruptcies and government agencies. It has
detailed info on local, state/province, and federal auctions listed
in the US & Canada. The second list or sublist contains every
individual preforeclosure, foreclosure, FSBO (sale by owner) and tax sale properties. We counted over 500,000 property
listings, including banks and FSBO (For Sale By Owner).
Each has property details and most have pictures of the property. If
you're trying to make or save money, and want the largest number of
choices, then this is your one stop dream site. The only reason it is
has been reduced to a 9 from 10 is because it doesn't have the depth
of information per property and foreclosure training/mentoring that foreclosure.com has (see above).
For general foreclosure listing information along with other types of
government auctions for vehicles and merchandise this site remains untouchable.
Preforeclosures and Tax Sale Properties
- Many hidden gem listings here! This is where you can really
do well buying discounted distressed houses, often for under $2,000.
Contact/Property Info - Too many of the auction sites don't provide contact
info; again, these guys get it right. Almost every listing has
direct contact info: name address, phone number, etc.
Bonus - With purchase using any link on this page they are also providing a voucher worth more $400 for a 3 day stay in one of any 60 Resorts in the US, Mexico and Hawaii (not a time share promotion or anything like that).
We grabbed ours and used it. This alone paid for our membership many times
