Tax lien investing is a great way to invest for your future at a higher rate of interest than you can get in most safe investments. The problem with tax lien investing if your looking for a consistent income is that you don’t know when you’re going to get paid. You don’t get paid on a tax lien until the property owner decides to redeem the lien, or, if they don’t redeem the lien, when you foreclose. And foreclosure could be a long drawn out process.
If you’ve been listening to my teleseminars this past year, you know that I’ve also been looking for ways to invest in real estate for consistent returns and passive income. I’ve been looking into foreclosures, pre-foreclosures, and short sales as ways to acquire properties in order to rent them out for passive income. The problem with these strategies is that they require a lot of cash. But what if you could purchase homes from people who needed to sell their property before the bank foreclosed on them and before everybody else was knocking on their door? And what if you could purchase their home without having to come with a lot of money. What if you could help them increase their credit score by purchasing their home “subject to” their current mortgage? And what if you could do all of this with little to no closing costs?
A couple of weeks ago my husband and I attended a comprehensive 2 day training to learn how to buy and sell and hold real estate for maximum profits. We learned about strategies that make it possible to find homes in pre-foreclosure before everyone else knows about them, and purchase these homes subject to the current mortgage, with little money, if any, needed for a down payment.

Tax Lien Investing FAQs

Recently I sent an e-mail out to my subscribers asking them some questions. I wanted to find out what it is that most people want to know about tax lien investing. I got a lot of good questions and I won?t be able to answer them all in this article, but I want to try to answer those that were asked most often and that weren’t answered in my new free video course.
I especially like to answer questions that start out with the words “How do I” or “How can I…” This type of question shows me that someone is really interested and is ready to take action. So let’s answer some of these types of questions that are not answered in my video series. So here are some frequently asked questions about tax lien investing.
Q1: How can I buy tax liens or tax deeds without going to the auction?
A: In most states you have to attend the auction in order to bid, or have a representative there to bid on your behalf. But there are 2 ways that you can purchase a tax lien or deed without physically going to the sale. A few states do have online auctions, but not all counties in these states conduct their auctions online. Usually just the larger counties do. Many counties in Florida, California, and Arizona have online tax sales. And I know that some counties in Colorado and Illinois have online tax sales as well. Another way that investors have bought tax lien and tax deeds without going to the sale is to bid on left-over liens, this can usually be done through the mail. The only problem is that as tax lien and tax deed investing become more popular, there are less and less good properties left-over after the tax sale.

Invest in Tax Lien Certificates and Tax Deeds Tax Free
By Joanne Musa, The Tax Lien Lady
Did you know that you could use money from a self-directed IRA account to invest in tax lien certificates or tax deeds? I’ve interviewed retirement account specialists from two different self-directed IRA companies; EntrustCAMA and Equity Trust Company, and I’ve learned that it is possible to invest tax free in tax lien certificates and tax deeds with a self-directed IRA.
If you use money from a regular self-directed IRA account to invest in tax lien certificates or tax deeds, than your money grows tax free until you withdraw from your account after retirement. But, if you use money from a Roth self-directed IRA, and you do not take any withdrawals until retirement age, you do not pay any taxes on your profits! So if you are using tax lien or tax deed investing as a way to save for your retirement, you need to look into this.

Tax Liens Vs. Tax Deeds: Which is the Best Investment?
By Joanne Muse, The Tax Lien Lady
Frequently I’m asked the question what is more profitable, investing in tax lien certificates or tax deeds. Whether tax lien investing or tax deed investing is better for you depends on the state that you live in and what your goals are. If you are looking to pick up property under market value than you are better off with tax deeds than with tax liens. If you do your homework and purchase tax liens on good properties, the chances of foreclosure are slim. And in some states, even if the lien is not redeemed, you may not be able to get the property.
In the State of Florida for example, if your lien does not redeem during the redemption period, the property goes into a tax deed sale in order to satisfy your lien. If you did your due diligence and purchased a lien on a decent property, in order to get the property, you will have to bid against other investors at the deed sale. So if you want to invest in Florida, and you are interested in obtaining property, then deed investing is the way to go, not lien investing. If, however, you are not interested in owning property, but just want to get a higher return on your money than you could in the bank, then tax liens are the way to go. In Florida, as long as you do your due diligence, you won?t have to worry about the possibility of owning the property.
