How can I acquire the tax owed home list?
By pjoseph from Port Saint Lucie, FL
Not trying to be rude but, other than making a profit from the misfortune of others, why do you want the list?
SIMPLE, go online to the central appraisal district of your city. Enter in the address and you can see who owns the property, what's been paid every year and what is owed. You can also enter a person's name and find out all the property they own. I't all made public. I did this when my appraisal went up on my property so that I could compare my appraised value to that of others in my neighborhood.
Deeli, would you have any quams about buying a forclosure? No different! Someone's misfortune. There are millions of people wanting to own homes and if this is the only way to get one I say "good luck and God Bless".
I'm appauled at the statements that some people make. Think before speaking (typing).
TXBetty, perhaps you should take your own advice of:
"I'm appalled at the statements that some people make. Think before speaking (typing)."
I was simply asking a question and if pjoseph is asking in order to purchase a home for himself/herself I would hope he/she would say so. I would have no problem with that if a person chooses to do so, but if it's for speculation, I do have a problem with it.
And, yes, for a home for myself, I would have qualms with it because it would haunt me that I got a bargain off the back of anothers misfortune :-(
Check out foreclosures.com They have a lot of nice houses at reasonable prices.

I would like to know who those people are who lost their house because of tax sales. They are usually due money that they really could use after they were evicted.

How do I find a house that has back taxes owed on it, to buy it? What are the guidelines on doing that? I live in Enid, OK.
The cool surprise for the guy who bought the place was that it had a whole machine shop in the basement with lots of huge machining tools. The house was originally owned by an 86 year old inventor (he was born in 1899). He was a very cool guy, but left the land to his daughter, who failed to pay the taxes. (05/27/2008)
