The Business of Tax Delinquent Property Investing
Get ready because I’m going to show you dozens of opportunities that most real estate investors have never seen or heard of.
Tax lien certificates and tax defaulted real estate is abundant. Tax defaulted auctions will number at least 5,000 this year, and every county will make a tax sale properties list available to the public.
It’s not unusual for a large population county to have hundreds of properties to auction. For example, Harris County in Houston conducts a monthly auction with over 200 tax defaulted properties throughout that one county.
The business of tax lien certificates alone will reveal millions of properties with unpaid taxes in just the one state of Florida. I’m going to give you a few examples so you’ll understand what a big business this really is.
How Many Properties Are on a Tax Lien Properties List?
Today I’m answering your question, “Where can I find a tax sale properties list?” and I’ll give you a number of examples.
Let’s start with a broad open view from 30,000 feet looking down. First of all, we will find out that all 3,000+ counties are authorized to have tax defaulted property auctions, and approximately half of those counties also conduct tax lien certificate auctions.
Each of the counties will publish a tax sale properties list. Some lists will only have a few thousand tax lien certificates, while large population counties will have 30,000 certificates, sometimes up to 50,000 certificates.
I have a list of approximately 30,000 tax lien certificates in Jacksonville, Florida, and a second list in Tampa, Florida. The information is readily available.
What the County Does About Delinquent Property Taxes
The failure to pay property taxes is a serious problem for the local county, and the board of supervisors or county commissioners have their hands full collecting taxes.
Property taxes are mandated by the state legislature in all 50 states. However, they push the responsibility for collection to county treasurers and tax collectors. Ultimately, if they can’t collect the property taxes, they will seize the tax delinquent real estate.
They will sell the tax defaulted real estate at auction with discounts of 50%, 60%, and 70% or more below the tax assessed value.
Where to Find a Tax Sale List
I have a brochure from a New York tax defaulted auction, and there are hundreds of properties. This brochure was created by a professional auctioneer which the county has employed.
If the county doesn’t employ a professional, they’ll put properties on their county website and advertise them in the local newspaper.
The list of properties is created by the local government and published by the local government.
Some counties maintain a mailing list, and if you have requested the tax sale properties list, they will mail you auction lists.

Purchasing Real Estate at Public Auctions
Many auctions are conducted online by either the county or professional auction companies.
Tax defaulted real estate is unwanted by the county. Therefore, they will auction the properties with the starting bid as low as the back delinquent taxes.
That doesn’t mean the property will sell for pennies. The highest bidder at the auction will be the winner.
Purchasing property at auction is not difficult. However, the county assumes no responsibility for the condition of the property or defects in the title. The buyer should expect the property to be used and abused. Many properties will require cleanup and paint to be ready for real sale.
A Profitable Tax Defaulted Property Purchase
Throughout this site, I include some interesting examples based on my previous experience so you can get the idea how I’ve been able to help others.
In a local county with only a small population just north of Tampa, Florida, my student investor only invested $9,000 at a tax defaulted auction. The property was a used and abused single-family home. The tax assessor valued the property at $91,000.
Using techniques learned in our training, the student investor checked out comparable values, which determined that the value of the property was over $200,000.
My student sold the property to a tenant for $5,000 down with an option to buy for a purchase price of $140,000.
Think about it. Would one deal like that a year make a difference in your life?
We hope you enjoyed Ted’s lesson, “Where Can I Find a Tax Sale Properties List?”
If you’re looking for a tax sale properties list, the list is typically found on the county’s website and published in the local newspaper.
