I was looking around on the net the other day, and found a link that said "Unclaimed Real Property" for the state of Texas. Ended up going to the secretary of state website i think it was, and there were a ton of land parcels that were in a category as being "unclaimed property."

They were cheap, and I'm wondering if anyone has any experience buying these type of deals and how in the heck they get there in the first place! Seems like a good bargain would be purchased by an investor long before it was placed in an "unclaimed property" status with the state. It reminds of that crazy dude with glasses on TV Matthew Lesko who has that book filled with all these "free government property" resources. Is that for real..? Has anyone bought that book by the way..?
