Networking is a vital component in growing your tax lien and deed business for experienced investors and beginners alike. A large industry event like the National Tax Lien Association Annual Conference is a networking event where investors get the opportunity to interact with leading industry experts and receive information about vendors and services.
If you are new to tax lien and deed investing, educational events such as live training classes or webinars are excellent ways to consume knowledge that will help kick start your business in the right direction.
If you live in the Broward County Florida area, good news! Our friend and highly experienced tax lien and deed investor, Richard Meyer, is holding an all-day educational event at the Holiday Inn at Sheridan and I-95 in Hollywood Florida, Saturday, March 12, 2016. With his 20+ years of experience in the business, Richard has acquired an abundance of knowledge on both tax lien and deed investing and he wants to share his knowledge with others interested in doing the same!
Richard will be describing in detail the five ways you can profitably work tax certificates and tax deeds without any money. Rich will explain how to make money using just your own hard work and guile. If you are looking to grow in your tax deed/lien investing business, you should not miss this opportunity to learn from a highly successful industry expert! Cleartosell will also be manning a booth at the afternoon session and be on hand for any questions about our unique services to tax deed investors. We hope to see you there!

Congratulations! You are the proud new owner of a property won at a tax deed auction, but are you in possession of your new property yet? Finding out whether the tax-deeded property is occupied or not can be as simple as driving by, checking the electric meter, or even knocking on the door. If those aren’t obvious indications of occupancy, then post notices on the premises with your contact information and send a FedEx that requires a signature.
Best-case scenario is your new property is vacant and you are free to take possession immediately. But if the property is still occupied by the former owners or their tenants, there are various approaches you can take to resolve this.
If possible, a peaceful approach is the best place to begin and it might save you a ton of time, money, and court date stress headaches. Before resorting to legal action, try working with the occupants to negotiate a solution that benefits both parties, such as offering cash for keys or covering their down payment on a new place. One tax deed investor shares his experiences with this approach on a BiggerPockets.com Forum: “I am often amazed how I can knock on a door and say I am the new owner and the tenants let me in and tell me what I want to know without really questioning…” Often times these people are in a tough situation and are looking for options, so treating them with respect may offer a quick and mutually beneficial solution.
If peaceful negotiations are unsuccessful, rest assured there is legal recourse available for taking possession of your tax deed property; whether a writ of possession, sheriff’s involvement, or even an eviction proceeding. The best course of action depends on your situation, and the process can vary from county to county. As such, we recommend to always consult with a local real estate attorney for the best option in the particular county you are working in, and to make sure you are taking the appropriate action to obtain possession of your tax-deeded property in the most expeditious way possible.
