how to invest in property with unpaid taxes side hustle


30 years ago, I discovered a little known unique real estate business that I could do part time.

The business required that I investigate and research the real estate for defects and check out and evaluate neighborhoods to figure out if I could buy it for one price and then resell the real estate for a profit.

The business was a subset of traditional real estate.

Traditional real estate for our purposes of discussion is large and small single-family homes, possibly some small commercial property, and a very small number of less than 20-acre agricultural property.

The big positive of this unique real estate niche that I really liked was the pricing. The business had been around for over 200 years, and it was lucrative but not very well known.


Can you do real estate part time? The answer is definitely yes.

The business that I discovered 30-years ago is a government-mandated and administered program called tax lien certificates and tax deeds.

These are unwanted properties that the property owners have failed to pay property taxes on.

Unpaid property taxes cause a big problem for the local county. I’ll tell you more about that in just a moment.

I have a free gift for you, a 1-hour, streaming-video mini course that will teach you the secrets of one of the safest high yielding investments available and how to generate massive cash flow in real estate.

If you’ve decided it’s time to take charge of your financial future, then this Free Course is the best way to get yourself started on the road to success!


This unwanted real estate is available in over 3,000 counties.

Anyone can purchase these properties for pennies on the dollar.

Many auctions will have 50 to 100 properties available per year, and sometimes, in the large population counties, thousands of properties will be available.

This is a part-time venture because most counties only auction once a year. That’s really part-time work, and that’s exactly what we’re discussing today.

The local county has confiscated a defaulted property, and now the county desires to return the tax delinquent property to the honorable taxpayer tax roll.

If the local county only has one tax sale auction a year, the auction properties will be available for research prior to that auction.

A part-time investor has plenty of time to research, evaluate, plan a bidding strategy and ultimately figure out what to do with a bargain basement property.


The auction is conducted and administered by the county treasurer, and the defaulted real estate is sold to the highest bidder.

The local county does not want the property. So, they sell the property starting with minimum bids that are very close to only the back-delinquent taxes, which could mean a starting price of only 5 or 10 cents on the dollar.

So can you do real estate part time? The answer is absolutely! Knowing about the county public auctions will give you time to evaluate the real estate and estimate a selling price above the low, low purchase price.


Imagine locating a single-family home that’s slightly used and abused with a starting bid price of 10 or 15 cents on the dollar.

The properties are sold with no mortgage. The county treasurer is authorized to cancel, that is delete, mortgages or deed of trust loans when they conduct the property auctions.

Keep in mind that just because everyone doesn’t know this, your county auction is not an isolated event. Nationwide, over 3,000 counties will auction tax defaulted real estate, both online and offline.

Small population counties may only have a few dozen properties. Large population counties will have thousands of properties at the auction.

I have attended auctions in places like Los Angeles County, and the amount of attendees exceeded the amount of 1,000 bidders. The auction was conducted in an arena, and the auction property list was over 2,000 properties.

Most participants at tax defaulted auctions are part-time investors, and they are attempting to make money as a side hustle. For sure, there is enough tax defaulted real estate for all who are interested.


We hope you enjoyed Ted’s lesson, “Can You Do Real Estate Part Time?”

For the most part, real estate is a part-time job. A lot of brokers, realtors, and landlords work part time. The same goes for real estate investors. Lucrative profits can be made buying and selling real estate on a part-time basis.

An incredibly profitable way to invest in real estate is a little-known niche of the market called tax defaulted property investing.

Why? Because counties auction tax delinquent properties with the starting bid around the amount of the back property taxes owed, making it possible to purchase real estate for 10, 20, or 30 cents on the dollar of the assessed value.

Additionally, the county extinguishes the mortgage or deed of trust loan, so you can get a mortgage-free property at a bargain basement price.

Since you can acquire property so inexpensively at a tax defaulted auction, you can also sell it quickly at a discount and still make a sizeable profit due to the high profit margin… and you can do all of this this part time as your side hustle.

It doesn’t take many of these deals a year to make a 6-figure income, and it can be done working 7 to 10 hours a week.
