Tax liens are filed at the state level more times than not. Basically, this means two things for you as an investor. First, you may do more legwork because sometimes the tax lien records are not posted on the internet. Second, if you do more work, there is a higher chance of finding worthwhile properties. Finding a tax lien property is quite simple. However, finding a property that is worth purchasing is a bit tricky especially in today’s economic crisis.
Furthermore, the easier it is to locate an opportunity to invest in tax lien properties, the less valuable it is most likely. It would be best to look where nobody else is looking. This means you have to look for problem properties because the best deals are the ones which not many investors know about. So, do not forget to do your due diligence before going to any tax sale.
