Investors in tax sale properties can get notifications about sheriff’s sales by signing up for the Interested Buyer Notification Program, according to the Galveston County Tax Office.

The only requirement is a valid email address.

Register at and sign up for information by county of interest or by property of interest. If you sign up by county (or multiple counties), you will receive an email with a link to the sale listing as soon as it becomes available. The listing will include links to each property.

Current and first time interested buyers will receive an email asking them to validate their email address to complete the subscription process. Once this is complete, emails will be sent about 30 days before the sales notifying you of the location from which to retrieve the listing and view properties. You may unsubscribe at any time.

For additional information, visit, click on the Sheriff Sale Information link, and look for the Interested Buyer Notification Program file or call the Property Tax Department, 409-766-2481 or 877-766-2284.
