This Week on Bid4Assets- Week of October 28th

Back to the Blog


Happy Monday everyone!

As we close out another month it’s time to look ahead–we have some HUGE investment opportunities waiting for you. The tax sale calendar has heated up since our last post and that means lots of new properties to bid on at a fraction of their market value.

In addition to huge offerings in familiar locales like Pierce County Washington, we have three tax sales to introduce you to in California, and three more in the state of Washington, including a brand new county!

The purpose of this post is to remind you of some important upcoming deposit deadlines. As a reminder, deposit deadlines ensure your spot in the approaching auction. You may still be allowed to submit a deposit after the posted deadline, but we highly recommend that you submit your deposit via wire transfer at that point, to ensure the safest and fastest processing of your auction registration.

That’s enough water cooler talk. Introduce yourself to the exciting auctions below:
