Because Harris County runs one of the largest Sheriff’s Sales, you need to arrive early. Note: Although, by law, you are required to obtain your written proof of “No Taxes Owed” before making a purchase at a tax sale and even though, on the county’s website, they confirms this practice, I have been told that not all counties in Houston practice this. My advice is to go to the County Tax Assessor/Collector’s office and inquire about this in person several weeks before the sale to confirm this.
