Every property owner in the United States, regardless of the property size or if the mortgage is paid in full, will pay taxes on the land itself. In fact, property tax collection revenue accounts for 72% of all local tax revenue collected annually.
Real estate tax revenue is a foundational source of revenue for local counties to keep running. But what happens when property owners are unable to pay their property taxes?
Tax delinquent properties can become a burden to the collecting county or state. However, savvy real estate investors understand that tax lien investing or wholesaling tax delinquent properties can provide a great solution to these motivated sellers while creating an optimal investment opportunity.
Often, investors who are willing to tackle wholesaling tax delinquent properties will also have experience working with distressed sellers on foreclosure or pre-foreclosure deals.

As of August 2020, one in every 13,791 housing units has a foreclosure filing against it. While national foreclosures and short sale numbers are down over last year, the numbers are steadily increasing over last month. The top three states in the US to have foreclosure filings are South Carolina, Florida and Iowa.
So, what does this mean for the overall real estate market? Given the pandemic and subsequent economic fallout, increasing foreclosures may become more prevalent as job losses continue and unemployment rates remain high.
The foreclosure process is both emotionally and logistically painful for the affected homeowner. The homeowner will face not only the loss of a home, but severe damage to his or her credit.
A real estate investor’s primary job is to find problems and identify creative, win-win solutions for all of the involved parties. Foreclosure investing is a perfect way to make these solutions. When a solution is found, then money is made!

When a person dies without a will, the process of selling off and dividing the remaining estate can become a complicated issue.
