i have several invesstors and clients looking and placing contracts right now. Contact me so I can see if I can help you save time and money.
1) Ask: when will the next "tax sale" be held? (They probably won't be able to give you an exact date, unless it's almost time)
2) Usually, a couple of weeks before the sale a list will be made available. The list will likely shrink all the way up to the date of sale. When you go on the date of the sale, get an updated list showing what's left.
3) Bring fat CASHIERS CHECK for more than you wish to spend, because there's no time to run to the bank.
4) BUYERS BEWARE! All Sales Final! Know what you're bidding on. Bid to just below your pre-determined max, then STOP. Don't be foolish and go over! This is how you do it...
(*I highly recommend you study up on this process further, or get a professional to assist. Many people have suffered serious financial harm buying at "courthouse auctions". You must be familiar with the entire process and know the rules, so you don't do something foolish!)
