A major of forced-sale merchandise and property is the Internal Revenue Service. When the government confiscates a debtor's property through the IRS, it is sold to the highest bidder to
recover a part of its losses.

Property sold by the government is not subject to usual laws of supply and demand. forced sales operate outside supply and demand laws because the government controls the sale of confiscated
property. Their only interest is in trying to recover a certain debt that has been incurred, not what the actual market value is.

Because Realtors aren't informed about forced government sales, you have a distinct advantage! You will be notified of sales as a potential bidder once you get your name on their mailing list. Then
you can go directly to the IRS to make your own incredible deal on property selling far below market value.

IRS property is sold either by public or sealed bid auction. Individual agents are responsible for selling property within their divisions. That means you won't have to deal with a central or district office to obtain information about property being auctioned.

Contact an IRS agent nearest you by referring to your telephone directory. Ask for information that will allow your name to be placed on mailing list throughout the country. Also, request a copy
of the Internal Revenue Service Code Manual Part V Chapter 300 at your local library to learn more about how the IRS auctions off confiscated property.


Post Office Auctions, also know as dead parcel or dead letter auctions, are conducted in regionally located U.S. Post Offices. Tens of thousands of items that never reached their intended
destination, or were never claimed by the sending or receiving parties, are auctioned off.

Unclaimed parcels are opened at dead parcel branches to determine if the property can be returned. If the sender remains unknown, or if the postage remains unpaid, the contents will be sold at auction.

To obtain Post Office Auction notices and procedures you must have your name placed on a bidder's list. You can receive information regarding the auction sale by writing to the manager in charge of the sale.

Thousands of items are auctioned off including, clothing, luggage, books, watches, rings, miscellaneous, jewelry, electronic equipment and sound recordings, leather good, and much, much more! The minimum bid is usually $5.00, and many items are sold in lots of 50, 75, 100, 200, 500, or more.

To have your name placed on all the U.S. Post Office's regional dead parcel branches bidder's lists, write the following addresses and request that your name be added to their auction bidder's
mailing list:

When a person refuse to pay a court judgement, his property can be confiscated by the sherriff's department and put up for sale. Money from the proceeds of the sale are then applied against the
outstanding debt.

Sheriff's sales are under the jurisdiction of state courts, so you will have to check with your local sheriff regarding sale rules and procedures. In some states, for example, all sales are final; while
others the person whose property was confiscated is allowed a certain amount of time to redeem his property by paying off the debt that led to the action.

Sheriff's sales are oral auctions with the property going to the highest bidder. The winning bidder must immediately pay for the property with cash, certified check, or money order.

To learn more about sheriff's sales in any area, call information in the sate and county you are interested in and ask the operator for the counties Sheriff's department. When you reach the Sheriff's Office, ask to have your name placed on their mailing list.


When a home mortgage is VA guaranteed or FHA insured, either agency will foreclose on homes if the buyer defaults by not paying the mortgage off as stipulated in his contract with a lender.

FHA has many types of programs available for purchasing or rehabilitating various homes and buildings. While HUD does not issue funds for loans, they do guarantee loans that are made
through banks, and other lenders. If a borrower defaults on payments, HUD pays off the balance and takes over ownership on the property. In effect, and FHA insured loan on foreclose property is
turned over to HUD and listed as a HUD repossessed property.

HUD and VA sell repossessed property through a sealed bid process, and require that offers be submitted trough a real estate broker who has been certified by the government. there are no hidden charges passed on to you by these brokers. They are paid by the government to perform this service.

Thousands of bankruptcies occur every year. When an individual or business goes bankrupt, the courts take over al the assets available that can be auctioned off an applied towards the debts
that were incurred.

Bankruptcy proceedings for claiming and auctioning off property varies little from state to state, because the U.S. bankruptcy court oversees all bankruptcy proceedings. As a general rule, the
court will appoint a trustee who has the responsibility of liquidating a debtor's assets. The trustee will then hold a public auction or sealed-bid sale to dispense of the property.

The variety of merchandise at bankruptcy sales is staggering! When you consider the tens of thousands of individuals and businesses who are forced to file under Chapter 7 (which results in the
liquidation of a debtor's assets to pay for liabilities accumulated) with each person and business offering different products, the magnitude of what can be purchased at incredible savings is simply incredible!

To get involved in bankruptcy sales, write to your District U.S Bankruptcy Court Trustee and request that your name be placed on their mailing list. Bankruptcy Courts are listed in the white pages of your telephone directory under U.S. Government Offices.

You can also contact your Court Clerk and request that your name be added to their local mailing list in your area.
