Land Investing and Delinquent Tax Records

2 Replies

Hi guys so I've learned a good amount from this site about raw land investing/flipping, and I recently acquired a delinquent tax list from my local county. My only question is how do you guys separate the raw land owners from the residential property owners? The list I received was a mix of owners who primarily were delinquent on residential property taxes. Do you guys just target more rural areas or is there a way to separate home owners from raw land owners on these lists i.e. some specific indication that it is raw land not residential property?

@Alex Giancaterino - The only way that i know how to narrow down the list is to research those properties at the assessors site one by one.  In most counties they will separate the land value vs the building value/improvement value.   Sorry for that news but due diligence is due diligence.   You can start with the least expensive properties first.
