I look forward to finally being able to make up what 2008 took away from me and reset my plans for retirement. I was able to pick up 2 properties with full ownership rights this time. but I stuck to my list. For me. I am truly a real estate investor. but with MAREI’s help and the assistance of the fabulous MAREI community. When I left. and that work continues. one tax lien cashed in. MAREInet.

I got a letter on one of my Wichita properties.com Page 6 . I took the cash I had earned from this venture and decided to try my hand at a tax deed auction. I contacted the lady who had sent me the letter and she said I owned the last open lot in a neighborhood where new homes had been going up like crazy. Some houses got crossed off my list. there didn’t seem to be anything too complicated about the processes. the second one came through. My profits went into rehab work on the second property. so I had to hold the properties. I drove up to Nebraska the weekend before the auction and tried to at least confirm.

I have the second property left to sell. On the 35th month. The fourth one paid out after about a year. one investor at a time. You could choose to either pay the tax due and own the lien. I was so excited! I hadn’t posted a single for sale sign. I was ready to own my first property for $831. The week after I bought the properties. Using the criteria I learned from the class. a very simple low-pressure way to start. I got my checks in order for the auction with a grand total of $3. I purchased a training package on tax liens and deeds and that’s where I started. I spent $10. I settled on Nebraska to start investing. The owner paid off all three years one week before the deadline. Nebraska allows tax lien holders to continue to renew their lien each year if the owner doesn’t pay the taxes. A letter came with an offer to renew at the price of taxes due and I bought the lien for a second year. One year after my purchases. I was still learning and planning what to do. the rest of the family continued to chide me for throwing my good money away and having nothing to show for it.
