What You Will Learn:

In the first section of the episode, Ted discusses “redeemable tax deeds” available in Georgia, Texas, and a small list of other states. Ted explains how a redeemable deed allows a property owner to redeem their deed within one year of your purchase, buying it back from you at a steep 20% penalty. Ted describes how the auctions in all 159 Georgia counties work. Ted describes the unusual situation of treasurers failing to auction properties, resulting in huge numbers of properties being sold at pennies on the dollar.

In the second portion of the episode, Macon, Georgia-based coach Bob Schumacher discusses his experiences with redeemable tax deed auctions in the state of Georgia. He shares how he tends to buy at one auction out of every three. He discusses the importance of keeping your maximum bid to yourself, and he shares the parameters he looks for in a property before bidding. He shares the clues you can look for to help decide if a property is in good shape inside or whether it will require a lot of expensive repairs. He explains what a “quiet title” is and how the process works.

In the final portion of the episode, Ted brings on special guest Dave Dubeau. Dave is a British Columbia, Canada-based expert who helps real estate entrepreneurs connect with investor leads, aiding them in generating investor funding for their deals. In this segment of the episode, you will learn:

  • How Dave got involved in and has been working in real estate his entire life, and why helping entrepreneurs connect with investors is his preferred work

  • What mistakes Dave has made and learned from over the course of his career, and how he overcame the challenges those mistakes created
