Hello BP Family.
I am an investor in Ohio but I became interested in tax sales in Virginia, especially in the Hampton Roads area. I used to lived there many years ago and I still have ties to the town.
Sales in Ohio are executed by the County's Sheriff and they are typically called Tax Sales. I can go to almost any Sheriff and I will find a list of properties.
In Virginia it appears to be a huge difference. I read that Virginia's state law labels it as "Judicial Sale of Real Property" but not every county or town calls it that way. I also read that all sales are at the physical address of the property for auction. Is this true?
Also, where can I find a list of properties for Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Hampton, and Newport News? It looks like every city has its own method as they were their own counties, but the information is not clear or easily available. It is not clear to me who is doing the actual sale. Are these cities using private auctioneers such as auction.com, foreclosure.com or do they use private law firms?
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks BP Fam..
I can't chime in on this topic but are you investing in Cincinnati?
Hi Daniel! Yes, every city is a little different, but generally speaking, you'll find the best resource to be auction.com and then typing in which city you'd like to start with. Sales are conducted with a solid mix of both in-person and online depending on the property itself. Auction.com will specify the dates and whether or not it's online or in-person in the Auction Dates column when you search.
Best of luck in your search Daniel!
I am not investing in Cincinnati yet. Thus far I have been focusing in Franklin county.
Are you investing in Cinci?
Thank you. It does help.
