August 5, 2011 (Newswire.com) - Sacramento, CA - There seems to be no immediate end in sight for frustrated property owners as the home market continues to take its toll. As a result, it appears that business will be brisk for the tax lien certificates Saen Higgins touts in his acclaimed books, lectures and worldwide seminars.
Higgins, who has made millions dealing with sales of property tax lien certificates and tax deeds, believes that this is an excellent way for investors to earn lucrative profits while also assisting strapped counties and stressed-out homeowners.
"County governments are dependent upon property taxes because they go toward paying for vital local services such as police and fire departments, schools, utilities and more," says Higgins. "When homeowners are delinquent, the counties must auction off tax lien certificates, which investors buy, in effect paying the homeowners' taxes for them as a loan. In turn, the lien certificate holder can expect an average interest return of 16 to 25% mandated by the government."
Distressed properties are expected to increase in the coming months, according to Fannie Mae. A "Shadow Inventory" of homes will start appearing on the market soon, providing an ample range of choices for lien certificate purchasers and others.
The tax lien certificates Saen Higgins talks about are available in all 50 states, with auctions held on a regular basis. These auctions, which are open to the general public, usually require just a small deposit for participation. In some cases, participation is free.
"My real estate students and others are reporting tremendous activity with tax lien certificates right now," says Higgins. "Once the certificates are purchased, there is an allowed redemption period for the property owner. If the delinquent owner does not repay the investor within the allotted time, then the investor is entitled to claim full deed to the property, without encumbrances, for merely the amount of the lien certificate purchase price."
Saen Higgins is a best-selling author of many popular books with wide readership, including his most recent, Wealth Without Risk, now available on www.Amazon.com. He is sought after around the world for his knowledge and insights about teachable real estate strategies. In fact, Saen Higgins has inspired many people who have gone on to find tremendous success in the field of tax liens and tax deeds.
Higgins owns and runs a 67-member team of professionals who not only teach others how to build a fortune with tax lien certificates, but produce millions of dollars in revenues each year by following the same investment principles that they advocate.
