Texas is a good redeemable tax deed state. Why is this so? The great thing about buying a redeemable deed is that you can acquire a full penalty when the deed redeems, not a fraction like tax liens. This is not the same with liens where there is only annualized interest rate.
Texas has six months redemption period and is unlike other redeemable deed states. It is because as soon as the redemption period is over, you are the owner of the property. You won’t have to go through procedures of foreclosure. Just do not forget to record it with the county clerk though once you receive the deed at the sale. You would also need to clear the title just like any other tax foreclosed property among tax deed states.
