FFREIA Reviews The Lessons From The Ontario County Tax Auction


Investor Pat McDonald


There’s Still Time To Sign Up!
Learn To Do Tax Auctions the Pat McDonald Way!


Remember the entertaining presentation Pat McDonald made at our general meeting?  She explained how she continues to build her single-family-home rent-to-own business.  And now she wants to show you one of the ways she acquires these properties to begin with.


At our April 9th general meeting, Pat kicked off our session showing FFREIA members how to participate in Ontario County’s tax auction scheduled for Wednesday, May 13.



On Saturday, May 9, there will be a field trip to look at these houses and listen to Pat explain her thought process on which properties to bid on and why.


Then, on May 13 you’ll be able to attend the tax auction with Pat in person and bid on properties or just watch the process.


And at our May 14 general meeting, those who participated in this event will be able to share what they experienced with everyone attending!


This field trip is for paid FFREIA members only, and requires registering with Susan by May 1.


The cost for this event is $39 per person (to help cover the cost of the group transportation so we can all be in the same vehicle and listen to Pat while we tour).
