The properties that are not purchased at the sale then belong to the taxing authority that brought the suit. You can petition the county commissioners to bring the property up for auction after they have purchased it. I have seen a SFR that did not sell and the people continued to live there.

What the property was purchased for has little to due with what someone is now willing to sell for. Those that sold cheap are best approached by finding the former owner and getting their right of redemption.

Newbie Questions:I’m interested in purchasing property that has not sold at tax sales (struck off). Would a hard money lender finance such a deal and would they lend money for a short amount of time ( few days or few weeks)? Also, would an interested buyer in such property offer less if it was known that property was purchased through a tax sale and was bought cheap? Thank you. Zulema
