It is the bidder's responsibility to research each property thoroughly prior to placing a bid. While investing in tax certificates is generally a good investment, there is some associated risk. Understand the risks and employ the “buyer beware” philosophy. Remember, the purchase of a certificate does not convey title to the property.

7. Batch closings.
As each batch closes, you may view the results for that batch by clicking “Results” on the home page.

Payments for the balance of your winnings must be made within 48 hours of the close of the last batch.
Failure to pay your auction balance, in full, in the time allotted shall cause your deposit to be forfeited.
