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.

Pre-foreclosures are 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.

Tax 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.

What's important here? The most important criteria in selecting one of these sites are
1) Number of Listings; do they have plenty of listings?
2) Current Listings; do they have the most up-to-the-minute information from banks & sellers? 
3) Detailed Contact, Property and Area Information; do these sites give you the right information to compare properties and make informed profitable decisions?

    bank foreclosure auctions and preforeclosures 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 over.

    Price: FREE GovernmentAuctions.org Limited Time Membership

    Even if you cancel your membership and pay nothing, keep the $400 Resort Voucher and these included Bonuses.
