There are a lot of spring tax sales, both online and live, tax lien sales, deed sales, and redeemable deed sales. Spring is a great time to get involved in tax lien investing no matter what your investment goal or where you live.
Tax Lien Sales
If tax liens are your cup of tea, there are plenty of tax lien sales in April and May in Alabama, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Maryland. All of the Alabama and Mississippi tax sales are live, but some of the New Jersey Municipalities and Maryland Counties do have their tax sales online.
Baltimore City has a big online tax lien auction each year that ends in the middle of May, but the deadline to register is earlier in the month. You’ll find the auction information on the bidding website at www.BidBaltimore.com. The site is open for registration now.
The Florida tax lien sales start in May and most of them end on June 1. There are a couple of Louisiana parishes that have tax sales in June as well.
Tax Deed Sales
If it’s deed sales that you’re looking for you can always find tax deed auctions year round in Florida counties. Because tax lien investors have to apply for their tax lien property to be auctioned at a deed sale rather than foreclosing on the lien, there is a continual feed of tax deeds for the auctions in Florida. Some counties will have a deed sale a few times a month. The only drawback to having tax sales that often is that there is not a whole lot available in any one sale. You’ll even find some of the Florida deed sales online.
Counties in California, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Virginia have tax sales in April and May. Many of the California counties have their tax sales online. A few of the counties in the state of New York also have online tax sales in the spring. The big news is that some Wisconsin counties now have online tax sales.
Late spring and early summer is the time of year for the judicial tax sale in Pennsylvania. Properties sold in the judicial sale are sold free and clear of any liens or judgments (except for government liens); unlike in the fall upset sales where bidders ARE responsible for other liens on the property. These sales are also only conducted live, as are the tax sales in all the other tax deed states, except where we’ve mentioned otherwise.
Redeemable Deed Sales
You can find redeemable deed sales on the first Tuesday of every month in the larger counties of Texas and Georgia. And this spring you’ll also find redeemable deed sales in Delaware, Connecticut, and Tennessee. All of the redeemable deed sales are live, but there is one county that now has an online redeemable deed sale, and that is Shelby County Tennessee. They hold a few tax sales a year, one ends today and the next one happens in early June.
