California is not a state that I can 'wholeheartedly' recommend for tax deed investment. There are some procedural barriers which make it difficult to attain a lower than market value price on tax defaulted property. Competition also plays a significant role in this state. Many California investors will opt for investment in Arizona, Iowa, Texas or Nevada.
For those interested in attempting to navigate the California tax deed maze then some of these research links may be useful to you. If you are starting out then I suggest you join a real estate investment club and speak with investors who have made the California system work for them. I have not invested in California and do not intend to.
NOTE: In all tax deed states research is very important. This is because the possibility of land ownership is very high. You should begin reading the state statutes relating to property taxes and delinquent tax collection practices. It is very important to be fully aware of which liens will survive the sale and foreclosure of the deed. The new owner of the parcel will be responsible for any surviving liens and claims attached to the property.
We currently do not sell a product that details the California tax deed sale process. I do have extensive experience with deed sale purchases and can give you some critical research suggestions to making tax deed sales work...but I hesitate with California. I do suggest reading the state's tax code relating to property taxes. If you have any questions please email me or set up a consultation. If you are interested in investing in any other states I have developed two high detailed 'best of breed' tax sale products that will guide you through the entire process of researching, inspecting,
locating, and profiting from tax defaulted sales. If you are interested in investing in high
