Profit by Investing in Real Estate Tax Liens: Earn Safe, Secured, and Fixed Returns Every Time

An investment alternative that gives fixed returns of 10 to 25 percent.
Profit by Investing in Real Estate Tax Liens introduces an investment alternative that is safe, secured by real estate, administered by the government, involves no brokers, is enforced by state law, and gives fixed returns. Selling tax liens or tax deeds (depending on the state) are the two ways that counties across the country bring delinquent property taxes up-to-date. This investment is one of the least publicized and safest ways of investing in real estate, designed to give the investor either a fixed return, as in the case of investing in tax liens, or a property for 10 to 50 cents on the dollar, as in the case of a tax deed sale. In most situations, the property is ultimately transferred free of any liens, such as mortgages. Profit by Investing in Real Estate Tax Liens also debunks the common myth that tax delinquent properties are run-down and shows that liens exist on every type of property. Author Larry Loftis, an attorney and active investor, has purchased liens on properties owned by Julius “Dr. J” Erving, Hector “Macho” Camacho (world champion boxer), Chase Manhattan Bank, LaSalle National Bank, and even a building whose major tenant was the local sheriff’s department! In this authoritative guide, Loftis helps investors avoid the pitfalls while answering all the key questions they need to consider:
* What’s the difference between investing in tax liens and tax deeds?
* How does an investor go about bidding at tax sales? And what is the process?
* What are the different requirements in each state?
* Where are the greatest risks in this kind of real estate investing? For investors eager to get started, Loftis’s action plan provides details on the next steps to take, while real-life examples in every chapter bring the concepts down to earth.

    Profit by Investing in Real Estate Tax Liens: Earn Safe, Secured, and Fixed Returns Every Time

    Profit by Investing in Real Estate Tax Liens, the only tax lien book written by a tax lien investor, has been the top-selling tax lien book since its first release in November, 2004.  In this second edition, attorney and tax lien investor Larry Loftis not only teaches how to invest invest in tax liens and tax deeds, he provides insightful, first-hand experience from his purchases around the United States.  Having purchased millions of dollars of liens (and deeds) in 12 states and attended auctions in 5 additional states, Mr. Loftis provides stories from different locations around the country, giving tips on how to avoid risks, and how to beat the competition.  He provides technical knowledge that only an attorney can provide, as well as “tricks-of-the-trade” that only a seasoned investor can provide.
     
    Profit by Investing in Real Estate Tax Liens also debunks the common myth that tax liens are found only on run-down properties, and shows that liens exist on every type of property. Author Loftis, who has purchased liens on properties owned by famous athletes like NBA stars and world champion boxers, national banks (like Chase Manhattan Bank and LaSalle National Bank), and even a building whose major tenant was the local sheriff’s department, reveals that he has seen liens on properties owned by a 9-time Wimbledon champion, a 3-time Masters champion, a Cy Young and World Series winner, a movie icon, an international celebrity athlete/model, and even properties owned by cities, the U.S. Post Office, and even the U.S. government!

    In this authoritative guide, Loftis helps investors avoid the pitfalls while answering all the key questions they need to consider:

    * What states are lien states and what states are deed states, and how do they work?
    * What about the “hybrid” (as Loftis calls them) states like Texas and Georgia?
    * How does an investor go about bidding at tax sales? And what is the due diligence required?
    * What are the different requirements in each state?
    * Where are the risks in this type of investing, and how do I avoid them?
    * How long do I have to wait to get paid off, and what rate of return can I expect?
    * How are counties selling liens and deeds using internet auctions, and how do I start?

    Real Estate Investing For Dummies (For Dummies (Lifestyles Paperback))

    “This is simply the best book on the topic.”
    —Randall Bell, Author, Home Owner’s Manual

    “Tyson and Griswold have truly opened the world of real estate investing to all by tackling often complex issues in this easy to understand and use book. I can’t think of a better way to get smart about building wealth through rental properties than to read their excellent Real Estate Investing For Dummies!”
    —Vern Hoven, CPA

    Non-prime time TV is cluttered with infomercials about how you can buy non-prime real estate for next to nothing and get rich quick. Common sense should tell you that’s an exaggeration. (If common sense doesn’t tell you, bankers will.) Nevertheless, it is possible to get rich gradually by investing in real estate. Long term, you can expect to realize an annual return of 8 to 10% a year.

    Real Estate Investing for Dummies gives you the keys to successful real estate investment, whether it’s in single family homes and condos, apartments, vacation homes, commercial properties (office, industrial, and retail), raw land, or REITs (Real Estate Investment Trusts). With guidance from authors Eric Tyson, MBA, a financial counselor, and Robert S. Griswold, a veteran real estate investor, you’ll discover how to:

    • Find and buy the best properties at a fair price
    • Capitalize on opportunities such as foreclosures, no money down deals, auctions, tax sales, and more
    • Secure financing and good mortgage terms
    • Value, evaluate, and negotiate everything to do with real estate
    • Work with agents and other professionals
    • Project income potential and cash flow
    • Handle contracts, inspections, and closings

    Whether you’re interested in a fixer supper for rental, premier office space you can lease, or a vacation home you can enjoy and rent, when you become a buyer, you also become a landlord. That means you can hear from tenants any time, night or day. It means you may not hear from them when the rent is due. Real Estate Investing for Dummies also helps you:

    • Find and keep good tenants
    • Negotiate lease agreements
    • Insure and maintain your property
    • Keep good records for tax and accounting purposes

    Remember, with any deal, you have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them. So Real Estate Investing for Dummies gives you guidelines on when and how to sell and how to reinvest to build wealth. It also lists 10 real estate investments you shouldn’t touch with a 10-foot pole. Especially if you’re tempted by those late-night infomercials, that warning could save you a fortune!
