It is very important to know that although you may see a particular tax deed coming up to auction in 2 months, it may not actually go to the auction.
We do not go back and edit our list of records. Once we put the list of tax deeds going to auction, it is not updated to reflect if it has been redeemed or cancelled. Only after the auction, on the Surplus Pages, do we note if a tax deed was redeemed or cancelled.
We also do not collect the records from an auction that is being held more than 3 months away from today. The records are usually incomplete when it is so far away from the actual auction date. They may show only a few tax deeds in that auction but add more later. We try to balance when we collect the records to give you the greatest benefit.
PRE-AUCTION LIST OF TAX DEED RECORDS
Each Monday, we upload a new list (Excel Format), of Tax deeds that are headed to auction in 3 weeks. This gives you time to decide:
- Is this a property on which I want to bid and own?
- Is this a property on which I want to bid and flip?
- Is this a property which will produce good surplus after the auction? How do we know this?
We collect and research tax deed records regularly and we know what happens. We determine the possible surplus amount by subtracting the starting bid from the Assessed Value. We know that IF there are bidders, the high bid regularly reaches the assessed value and higher. Also, if the property is Homestead, we know to add 1/2 of the assessed value to the overbid amount because that goes toward surplus as well.
SEE SCREENSHOT FOR FIELDS PROVIDED ON SPREADSHEET
Please Note, the list does not include the Property Information Reports. They are sold separately. If you want both, purchase the Auction Records on Excel and with that comes a PDF Order Form for you to choose which Property Reports you want.
We provide the records only for counties who hold their auctions online, so you can participate.
With the spreadsheet, you also receive an Order form so you can obtain the Property Information Reports for the records you want. The Property Information Reports contain the following Info:
- Owners Name
- Owners Mailing Address
- Any liens or mortgages that may be on the property
We also provide you with a Sample Property Report for each County with markups and notes on where to find each piece of information you need.
On the Order Form, you pick and choose which records you want to order the Property Reports for and they are .30¢ each (Same price for everyone. Discount Codes do not apply to Property Information Reports)
We do not produce the reports. These are the Property Reports each County creates for the tax deeds that are headed to auction. Although they are free to the public and you are welcome to download them yourself, it takes a great deal of time to do so. We do it for you and supply them all at once.
