Check out some of these websites:


These websites will give you most of the info. you need.
Talk to other local investors who purchase these deeds at the tax sales.
I do know that GA has a 1 year redemption period!
As far as redemption values: GA is 20% first year, no matter when redeemed, and 40% second year

GA is a “bid up” state, which means:
The bid goes to the highest bidder at public outcry.

As you said their are always other charges related to bidding on tax cert.

Just remember, the property that you bid on will be yours if the owner doesn’t redeem.
I would make sure and check the property for any problems that you may miss.
Any properties that I bid on, are ones that I wouldn’t mind owning myself!

Good Luck,

Considering purchase of a house (not a mobile home) in GA which is up for tax sale. Questions: Does GA have redemption period for the owner? What are the rights of the current mortgage lender(s)- balance due, etc? I know about considering resale value vs mortgage, liens, and taxes due, but not familar with specifics of GA law. Anyone out there know the law? Thanks.

I suggest that you read the GA statutes related to collection of delinquent property taxes. You can find the black letter law–the statutes–on the internet at several sites.

You might also consider buying John Beck’s “Free and Clear” educational package. It covers all states of the union, the Canadian provinces, and the USA possessions. At about $50 total, it is a great bargain. Try website.
