Tax Title Auctions
Strategic Auction Alliance provides complete tax title assignment auction services to Massachusetts municipalities. Massachusetts tax title auctions are similar to what many people refer to as tax lien auctions or tax deed auctions in other states. Our programs are designed to deliver capable and interested third party investors who assume the municipality’s “receivable position” and purchase tax titles for the entire amount due the tax title accounts and settle with the municipality within 14 days following the auction. We keep the process simple and navigate you through the red tape. No guess work, no worrying about compliance, we have it covered. We make your auction event easy from start to finish right down to sending the certified US mail notices, communicating directly with the investors, collecting the earnest deposits in escrow and delivering to our municipal clientele up to date assignment documents for their usage. Need more help? No problem… we have a CMMC/ CMMT tax title specialist on staff that can assist with your pre and post auction tasks.
We offer immediate results without the time and expense of tax foreclosure. 16% accruing interest upon the principal tax title balance is an attractive investment mechanism in today’s economy. We offer investors the opportunity to bid competitively in a completely transparent open forum for these assets, resulting in the assignment of the entire amount due the municipality at a minimum or that amount plus a premium if the desirability for any given asset so dictates. All of our tax title assignment auctions offer online absentee and / or simulcast streaming real time auction capabilities to offer remote bidding to buyers who may not wish to attend in person expanding our auctions to a wider audience of participant buyers.
