Buying property online is becoming more prominent in the tax sale industry. One of the mistakes you want to avoid is purchasing demolished properties. Tax Sale Resources is here to help you navigate this new buying experience and help you avoid the costly mistake of buying demolished properties!

Mistakes To Avoid Buying Demolished Properties

As an investor, you need to rely on current and updated information. Online research tools such as Google Street view are often outdated, so you shouldn't depend on them. The chances of something going wrong with a property at a tax sale are higher than those at a real estate sale. 

You might find photos of the property on the research sites you're using. However, those photos may not represent the property's current status, which could result in purchasing demolished properties. It's essential to have the right tools and resources available, such as those available through partnering with Tax Sale Resources. 

Tips To Keep In Mind To Avoid Demolished Properties

The property you are looking to invest in might already be on a demolition list, which is quite common in the tax sale industry. Having the property on a demolition list could mean the owners aren't paying taxes. Thus, the property could be neglected and not properly maintained.

The demolition can occur within a month or even a few days after purchasing the property online through a tax sale. You don't want a demolition bill from the county that could cost you thousands of dollars. That is why it's always recommended to do an on-site inspection or have someone conduct further research on the property for you. 

How We Help You Avoid Demolition Problems And Damage

When you work with us for any online property tax sale, you can access various tools and resources. If you or someone you know cannot do an on-site inspection of the property, our online tools can help. You can order an assessment, and someone will come to the property within two to four days. Upon completing their review, you can access the photos and information through the email address you used to register for our database.
