In another thread (forget who mentioned it), the post mentioned buying land at a tax sale. I did a little searching and found this resource:
Public Records - Foreclosures And Tax Lien Sales
When I get back to Washington, I'm going to use it and try to find a bargain priced home-base for my TT when I'm living up there.
Anyone here experienced with the process of buying these types of properties? I know there are some cautions to be aware of, like usability (zoning) issues, condition of the property (being polluted, etc.), flooding and such. There's probably a good reason that most of these are being given up by their owners for back taxes owed.
