Rate of Return:

Delaware has a 15% interest rate of return.

Bidding Type:

Delaware uses the “Premium Bid” Method. The counties bid will include the back taxes, penalties, interest, and any administrative costs. The deed will be bid up in price until a high bid has been established. The investor with the highest bid receives the deed to the property.

Redemption Period:

The redemption period in Delaware is 60 days from the time of the sale. If the property owners chooses to redeem the property, he must pay back the full amount of the bid plus the rate of return at 15%.

Additional Information:

The state statutes in Delaware allow the counties more than one way to handle their tax sales. In some counties you will see a 20% interest and a one year redemption, and other will be the way you see above with a 15% interest and 60 day redemption. After the sale the county attorney has to approach the Supreme Court and petition for completion of the sale. The faster the owner pays the delinquent taxes, the greater the return of the investor.
