Pennsylvania does sell tax deeds. Pennsylvania does not sell tax lien certificates. Pennsylvania sells tax deeds in September. If any deeds to not sell at the primary sale then they will be re-offered on a monthly basis. There is also statutory authority for a Judicial Sale that will attempt to sell properties that have not sold at the month to month sales. I suggest first reading the state statutes covering property tax collection and delinquency. Then talk to an attorney in the state who practices in this area and find out what can go wrong. An attorney will usually tell you what the worst case scenarios are about an investment - that's usually when
someone hires an attorney! Lastly, I suggest networking and talking to investors who have made the state payoff for them. Remember that the primary issue in tax deed states revolves around surviving liens and title issues.
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.
