The 1st Tuesday of the month is here and that translates to tax & trustee sales on the courthouse steps.  There are a total of 7 properties scheduled to be sold in Smith County (in Tyler, TX) for September 2o15.  Some, all or none could be sold.  The most current list can be found here.Interested bidders must do their homework prior to bidding as well as educate themselves on Texas law and homestead rules.  You must have cash on hand because financing is NOT an option.If properties fail to sale at the courthouse steps, they can be added to a "strikeoff" list for later bidding usually as sealed bids.If you have any questions about tax sales or trustee sales, contact Cider Properties at (903) 484-4109 or visit our site to learn more.

  Ok, every now and again I just have to vent. I watch as people attempt to trash our Supreme Court and Hobby Lobby over the recent landmark court decision and wonder out loud, WHY?   Where you work is a choice and if you don’t like the benefits they offer, don’t work there. Hobby Lobby has not changed their view in light of Obama Care. They have remained consistent in the face of this over burdensome law. Besides, you can still buy birth control for around $10 on your own each month, they just didn’t want to pay for it. Obama promised the private business owner would pay for it and clearly overreached.   If you work for a company and know the rules going in, then what’s the problem?   The liberal justices said it would open up all kinds of challenges to the law. SO!!!! If it’s wrong it...
