Mobile County has now set its auction date. It will be an online lien auction on May 4, 2020. For more information, registration, and training, click HERE. The company hosting the auction is based in Mississippi, and has done online tax auctions for that state and for Tennessee. Hopefully that means everything will run smoothly.

Remember, this is a tax LIEN auction, not the old-fashioned tax certificate auction. There will be no rights of possession, no ability to make improvements, but also a much shorter and easier path to clear title with the ability to get title insurance. If you are unclear about the differences, and how that affects your strategies, think about signing up for our Intro to Tax Sales class, HERE. Even if you’ve taken it before, a LOT has changed in the last couple of years: some bad things, some great things, and some new opportunities.
