Good Evening Bereithany,

A dollar deed is when two family members transfer title between each other for a dollar. Therefore eliminating the beautiful city transfer tax....

Or are you thinking of the city owned shells that may be selling for a dollar?

One dollar property sales occur between relatives and business entities.

If you have cash to make a purchase outright and are willing to invest more in rehabilitation there are always sheriffs sales.
