If you're intending on getting cash back at closing - the answer is No. That would be an inducement / incentive to buy.

If you're intending on borrowing more to do Repairs to the home or obtain a contribution towards your Closing Costs and Prepaids, the answer is yes - but as indicated by the knowledgeable answers below the home must appraiser for the amount you are trying to repair / contribution you are getting. ... more

I would be my advise to work directly with a Broker / Realtor to find the property that would financially benefit your "Home Buying Objectives" That agent would have a feduciary responsibility to you. Most importantly, work with a Realtor who is experienced with investment properties. That in itself will pay its way. The Sullivan Real Estate Group work exclusively with their buyers paying particular attention to the financial goals.
If you are interested in discovering how to make your CASH work for you, call to schedule an appointment. It doesn't cost you a dime.

Hi Marcus,

While you have missed the tax lien sale, you can still obtain the list of all properties from the Franklin County Treasurer's website

Just click the link in the box that says "pending tax lien sale bidder file" and a spread sheet will open up.

In case you did not know, in Franklin County these parcels will NOT be sold individually. Quote from the treasurer's site: "all eligible tax liens will be auctioned as a single portfolio. This year we anticipate the purchase price to be between three and six million dollars. Tax liens will not be sold individually and the Franklin County Treasurer does not sell “over-the-counter” liens. As in all Ohio counties selling tax liens certificates, the bulk sale of liens in Franklin County is not designed for individual investors. "

Hope this helps and clarifies.
