For tax liens you normally need to do some homework to verify what the lien is really on? Are there any problems? If the land is vacant, is it landlocked, a swamp, etc? Best to stick with land that has been improved and has a mortgage on it if all you want is the interest income.

Some states will auction off the liens and any not sold will become available ('over the counter'). This means you can buy them by mail. Some individuals like this way of buying while others prefer to attend the auctions.

All locations that are running an auction will publish a list of liens that are expected to be auctioned. Some will get settled before the auction date and a few might be pulled because of other reasons.
