The Ted Thomas Guide to Buying Tax Liens

Buying Tax Liens – How Does it Work?

Looking to find out more about buying tax liens? Then you have come to the right place…

For over 200 years local governments (county, city, township, town, parish) have helped investors make money buying tax liens (officially a tax lien certificate).

When an investor buys tax liens from the government, the investor is offering a loan to cover unpaid delinquent property taxes – this is money the local government needs to operate and pay county employees.

Buying Tax Liens – How Much Does it Pay?

State laws regulate the process to protect the investor buying tax liens, and the property owner. Depenbuying tax liensding upon the state, interest rates on tax lien certificates can pay interest rates of 16%, 18%, 36% to reward those buying tax liens.

Buying Tax Liens – What You Need to Know

Many investors have learned how to make money from Ted Thomas. He offers training that will help first-time or seasoned investors find the most profitable tax liens to buy and avoid costly mistakes.

There are a few things to keep in mind. First, do your homework. Making sure there is a house on the property is easy. Check online resources. Then, check out the property.

One way is with Instant Street View. Just be aware the pictures may not be current. Instant Street View can also give you a very good look at the neighborhood.

The real estate information website Zillow will give you a lot of information about a property. I have two videos on my website,, that teach you everything you need to know about using Zillow.

I also have more videos that teach you everything you need to know about property research. Once you join, you can watch the videos as often as you need.

The most important recommendation to make money buying tax liens is:

Before buying any tax lien, research the property which is in default to make sure the property has a value greater than the value of the tax lien.

Information should be verified; it is critical to determining the value of a property. Understanding and researching properties will almost guarantee you can make money.

Buying Tax Liens –  Strategies For the More Advanced Investor

For more advanced investors there are many techniques used to find and buy the highest yielding tax liens. If your investment strategy is to own property for pennies on the dollar there are numerous strategies sophisticated investors use.

For example, seek out properties with a sale price much higher than the cost of the tax lien and a lower likelihood of the taxes being paid, resulting in the investor owning the property for pennies on the dollar.

One clue that a property’s taxes may not get paid off is if the owner lives in another country.
