In some counties there is a lot of competition and in others there is very minimal. Overall there is between $7 - $10 Billion dollars worth of tax liens each year up for auction, so there is plenty of liens and deeds to go around for investors.
If you look at the picture to the right you can see three counties in Florida that held online auctions in 2014. Polk County had 35,306 tax liens, Palm County had 27,639, and Orange County had 24,439 tax liens. That is a total of 150,059 tax liens in just 3 counties! There are over 5,000 taxing jurisdictions in the United States.
In fact some counties have liens actually left over after the auction because there were more liens then the investors could afford to buy. These are county held tax liens and we will teach you how to purchase these liens, so you can avoid the auctions and earn the full interest rate mandated by law!
If you live in a competitive market don't give up. Many counties now conduct online auctions which you can take part in and make your investments on your laptop at your kitchen table.
