@Sammy G. Did you go to the auction? Any luck? Any lessons?
Yes I did go to the auction and was able to pickup 2 properties, the deeds will be mailed in couple of weeks.
It was a great opportunity - more than 400 properties and less crowd/competitors (July 4th week, ppl took days off)
I’m a little late to the party here. I live in Seabrook and am just getting started. I was thinking about attending the Galveston county auction in about a week. Anyone going? I’d just be going to watch and take it in. We are in the final stages of closing in a rental property in Galveston for our very first deal. Pretty standard safe stuff with not nearly as much upside l, but hopefully less downside too. Going to take a few months and learn what it is is like to be a landlord before we do anything else, but I would like to look for a better deal.
Anyway, if anyone is attending the Galveston one, let me know. We could grab some beers afterwards.
