Is there a way as a tax lien or tax deed owner to hide my true identity from the property owner?
Try a trust
@Chaim K. Will there be any interaction between you and the homeowner? I ask because normally the County municipality acts as the middle man between you the investor and the homeowner.
tax lien sales, you normally have to foreclose on the previous homeowners, which is a legal action, and you may have to evict them, so chance are you will eventually meet them. tax deed sales in the states I look at, the county already takes care of everything, so you wont have to meet them.
