So What Exactly Is Tax Auction Investing?

Hi, I’m Dutch Mendenhall and Tax Auction Investors is a real estate company where Tax Liens and Deeds are our preferred method of investing.

There are a fair amount of “get rich quick guys” out there, you have to be wary of anyone who claims you can make thousands (or millions) by only investing a tiny amount of money.

On the other hand, we work with professionals, executives, those working toward retirement, business owners looking to invest capital, and those who are simply tired of the market. What sets us apart is how we teach reality through planned work and consistent efforts; we keep it real and hope you appreciate our commitment to transparency!


How Do Tax Auctions Work?

Tax auction investing is a road with two paths. There are tax liens that can be directly purchased and there are also tax deeds. We primarily go the route of tax deeds.

A tax deed is sold after a tax lien has run its course and a tax foreclosure has completed; this typically occurs when someone dies, doesn’t pay taxes, or has problems with addiction or mental health.

Tax deeds require a higher level of investment than tax liens. They also come with higher earning potential. Once you purchase a tax deed, you can almost immediately earn rental income and leverage the asset to cycle your money faster.

With me so far? This topic can get a bit complex, so always feel free to post in the comments for any clarifications.

Within the United States, there are 28 states, Washington, DC, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands which allows liens to be sold to private investors (like you and me) and about $6 billion in liens that come up for sale each year.

Let me repeat, there is $6 BILLION in open market real estate that you can purchase, typically at a bargain price depending on the state of the property and location!

So let’s say I bid at a county auction on a tax lien and win. What happens next? The local government gets its cash immediately and the buyer (me) gets the right to collect the delinquent tax, a penalty, and interest on the late payments.
