We had agreed on a bidding ceiling for each bid - the highest we would go in the bidding process for this property. Fortunately, we won the bid right at our ceiling amount. It was fate. We also have plenty of room to flip this property to another investor for fix-up, leaving the rehabbing investor room for tens of thousands of dollars in profit as well.

Chad and Shawna Lucero
have purchased 6 parcels total. The first one I bought for $1200. (I think close to that anyway) plus I had it surveyed. When the 6 months was up, I advertised it for $11,500 and could have sold it 3 times.
Now I have 5 more I'm holding. One is a lot in a nice subdivision but has a utility line running through it. A builder wants it and is getting a price on how much it will be to move the line. This one I bought for $600.00 + survey. I should be able to make at
least $10,000 on this one.
The others are as follows:
1 acre lot in city limits bought for $850 should be able to sell for $8,000 to$9,000 (not sure about the value of this one yet)
3/4 acre lot in city limits bought for around $650 should be worth at least $7,000.
one is a residential lot paid $330 its not worth much but is across the street from a middle school, a builder has approached me about it but right now not sure of its worth maybe $3,000.
last one is a lot in the same area...one is an
old frame church , the other is a little white
house or building with a lot of stuff stored
in it. Bought for $220 not sure at
all of the worth.
Thanks again for your help!
Thanks a ton!
Hope you're doing well.

We were very interested in a newer
metal building on the highway. The amount
posted as the proposed opening bid was very
low in relation to the appraised
value...When the house came up in the sale, no
one bid on the house, I bid the opening bid
and bought the house.

probably will make that our home for awhile.

...I always tell this story to my students. God sent the angel to get the names of the bad guys on earth, it took too long for angel to finish them. So God (told the) angels there are too many bad guys...(so he changed) the order (telling the) angels (to) the list the good guys. In two days, the angel finished...God (was so happy) and cherish(es) the...good guys on earth. So he decide(d) to write a letter to them. Do you know what God want(ed) to write?
Darius, I believe you are the person knows the content of the letter. The reason I mentioned the story about the God is because your words in the book not only show the essential key points of this business (it definitely worth the money) but also your are the person God should send the letter to you because (of) your sincerely and honesty and kindness and concern.

I have never taken any type of real estate courses before this, despite the late night barrage of gurus pitching their wares on television.
I found your
Secrets to Investing in Tax
to be superb, you've spoiled me. I know now what to look for in a course.
Thank you for the hard work and effort you put into your materials.
I feel 100% confident in what I've learned up until this point and feel that I CAN DO THIS. When I see these other offers for tax lien courses elsewhere I can't help but wonder if the people who are taking these courses are getting as good an education.

Following your material and advice, we set up a corporation and began to look for tax property to purchase. We found a nice brick house on the struck off list. After further research on your advice, we discovered that the mortgage company had not been notified. Therefore, we would have been liable for the mortgage which turned this great deal into a very bad deal. We learned from this not to blindly trust the county attorney to have every T crossed and every I dotted.
On July 6 we went to an auction and purchased two properties. (After doing through research.) One for $2700 and one for $3600. Three weeks later both parties redeemed their property. This gave us a profit of $1575. Not a bad three week investment.

My first purchase at a tax foreclosure sale was a vacant lot for $7500.
August of 2000 my plans were to build a home to live in [it] but plans have changed and I will be putting this lot up for sale next month for $29,000. I'll probably net $25,000.
I have already gotten a title commitment and will be able to get title insurance. I mention this because back in 2000 I believed that because the sale is from the "government" everything should be ok. as advertised on [Television infomercials] and did not think that a title search would be necessary, but thank God there were no other liens attached to this property.
Second Purchase at a tax foreclosure was a single family home waited the 6 month redemption period and made necessary repairs total of purchase price and repairs equaled $65,234. Just two months later property sold for $99,000.

course was 99 dollars compared to a course
offered by Robert Allen Institute of over
$3,000 dollars and you don't even get the
personalization that Darius provides over the
phone, internet and to your email address.
As i stated I was happy with the course, but
the one on one from him before even buying his
course went beyond just selling a course, he
truly seemed to care about providing the
knowledge needed to be successful and to be
careful with what you invest in.
LISTEN TO THIS ... After I finished the
course and read through everything. I still
had about 15 questions that I needed to ask
Darius. I called him once again on the phone
and left him a message saying that I would be
sending him an email with all my questions.
Darius promptly called me back and left a
message for me stating that he would be on the
look out for them. The questions I asked would
take some of his time and being he is an
attorney I'm sure he was busy. If I wanted to
ask the questions to another real estate
attorney it would cost me $100.00 an hour on
the low side. Within one day Darius
responded to all my questions and went beyond
a 99 dollar course. I am amazed at his
compassion and level of professionalism.
Thank you Darius.
You saved me thousands of dollars with your tidbit of information on looking at the date of the cause number. I had already walked in to buy a struck off property with a a "$1,600 lien". The property was worth $15,000 FMV (fair market value).. I couldn't run to the tax office fast enough. But when I got there they told me that taxes had accrued to > $4,000… The auction date was recent but the judgment was old…after reading your course I know to compare both when considering the property. Your course will definitely save me a lot of time and surprises when considering
properties in the future…
…Once again, thank you for going the extra mile on sending me

really enjoyed your course...You have
taken, what seems to be, some very
complicated stuff and, in my opinion,
you have boiled it down into a very
basic and simple material to
understand and implement.

Tax Sales has to be one of the
greatest investment opportunities in all
of America. Especially since the Stock

can't get a very good rate of return on your
money invested in CD's or Banks.
