Chris Freel answered:
If taxes are unpaid the town could sell tax lien certificates for the unpaid taxes to the public in an auction. The auctions usually happen once a year in most towns. You can find out when each town has their public auction by visiting the town hall and asking the tax department. There are professional investors who go to these auctions looking to buy tax liens on as many properties as possible. The town usually hands at a list of all properties that are late on taxes, and how much they owe in taxes a few weeks prior to the auction. ... more

Desirability and utility are probably two very important considerations when determining value. Determining a suitable use that coincides with the physical characteristics of the land will help greatly.

Many Broker Open houses are on Tuesdays or Thursdays, not on the weekends too.

Over the weekends, if I am not working with a client I spend time with my family or my hobbies.

- Advertising for Open houses is KEY to get ppl or other brokers to your listing.

Just putting 8 signs out on street corners and in your MLS might not get enough people to show up.

be proactive:

- Price it CORRECTLY

- Print out 100 or more COLOR flyers about your open house. On Wednesday before your Open house walk around that neighborhood between 6 and 8 at night to hand out the flyers to neighbors. Neighbors sell there neighborhood to their friends.

- Print an Open House flyer on PostIets a week prior to the open house. This will go out too all the IDX feeds.

- Craigs List. on Tuesday adverting your open house over the weekend. and on Saturday Morning take your Craigs list posting DOWN, make a new one and put it up. ( Do not renew, but remove and put up a NEW listing )

Your Postlets flyer will have HTML code for posting on Craigs List, Back Page and Oodle.

- have your lender do a lender flyer with loan amounts and payments for your home / Open House.

-Drawings for a $50 gas card at your Open House. Great way to get names, phone numbers and email address of ppl coming thought. ( called LEADS )

- Have bottled water and light snakes at your Open House for your guests.

This is what I have done and do with great success.

best of luck to you.

You have to go to town hall. Last time I dealt with a shed in Barnegat you needed a permit. Call the building office at 609-698-0080 ext 114.
