Unlike sites which offer “multi-state” expertise, we only do one state—ALABAMA! Why? (1) We’re local. We live here, work here, pay taxes here and vote here! (2) We have over 30 years experience in Alabama tax sales–in both the public and private sectors. (3) We don’t try to pretend that all states are the same in terms of tax sales—they are not!We can help you. Maybe you’re new and not sure how (or even why) tax certificates are a good investment. Perhaps you have been involved in this business but would like some help better navigating the system. We can help you.
Not sure what all this means? You might start with “What is a Tax Certificate”.
Need advice on certificates or deeds you currently own? We’ll set up a consultation and help you “get your arms around” your property tax investment portfolio.
Want to invest without the hassle of attending a tax sale? The properties listed in the Current Inventory tab are ready to go.
Ready to buy? Contact us immediately- certificates are sold on a first come first serve basis and each option carries an expiration date.
Here is a question that I recently received:
“We keep hearing from folks that if a property is sold for taxes, all the mortgages and other liens are wiped out. Is that true? Do you know where the law is on that? We want to buy tax certificates but want to make sure we aren’t buying a bunch of old mortgages to go along with it.” (edited)
We’re NOT with the government, we’re here to help.
Let me just take a moment to give a short “primer” on what one might do in the event they find themselves with a tax deed. Let’s use as an example property, a tax deed property located at 6255 Crest Green Rd, Birmingham, AL 35212. Read More…
Historically, for the sale of a tax certificate, we have charged 3% of the State amount due or $100, whichever is greater. Read More…
I recently received the following questions from a reader:
“I read article regarding the case where the tax investor was asking for payments for insurance and preservation but courts denied. I also read case regarding void tax deed. My question to you is how as investors do we verify that owners have been properly notified so that deeds will not be void? Any clarification in this would be very helpful. Regarding the insurance are most investors purchasing home or renters insurance on the property? “ Read More…
According to a recent Alabama Supreme Court ruling in FIRST UNION v LEE COUNTY, Alabama may NOT be a “title state” after all when it comes to refunds of excess bids from tax sales. Read More…
Sorry for the delay in updating website and lists. We had an interruption on April 27th. It was the Shoal Creek Valley tornado. We were very fortunate in that (1) no family members were injured and (2) we still have a house, although significantly damaged. We had dear neighbors who were not so fortunate. We are thankful to the Lord for his provision and protection. Go here if you want to know more about what happened in our valley.
NOTE: The Boyd Family needs only your prayers. If you would like to help, please donate to the Lee and Crawford Families. Thank you.
I apologize for not having been responsive to questions. I will try to get caught up on those.
We do have some properties available. Let us know if you have interest.
In our effort to build business relationships based on trust and integrity, it occurred to me that it might be helpful to let folks know our terms for selling tax certificates and tax deeds.
1) Tax Certificates-Our commission is 3% of the State price or a minimum of $100.00. For example: if the State amount is $4,832.95 the total amount would be $4,977.94. Our fee in this case would be $144.99.
2) Tax Deeds-Our commission on tax deeds is 10% of the State price.
You may be asking “What do I get for the commission that I pay?” Fair question:
1) You get to “buy it now” instead of waiting in line just to see if you even have a chance to buy it from the State yourself.
2) You get the benefit of having us shuffle all the paperwork which includes getting a cashier’s check, mailing it certified mail to the State, and doing it within the time constraints required. Oh yeah, did I say everything has to be accurate as well?
3) You get the benefit of having someone with over 27 years experience dealing with the State to oversee the process.
Can you do this yourself? Absolutely.
But we would be glad to do it for you and let you do what you do best.
Let us know if you have questions.
