I decided that 2012 would be the year that I would concentrate on tax deeds. I have working the foreclosure market for about 20 years. At the present time the best investment appears to be tax deeds. I have purchased five homes this year via tax deeds. All properties were acquired by Quit Claim deeds. I have flipped one of the properties to another investor. I haven't decided what to do with the other properties but will probably maintain as rental properties . I have been meeting with other active investors and exchanging information with them.
