“Nebraska has always provided a large number of quality properties at their annual tax sales. We are excited to show our shareholders and investors the strength of our business model as we acquire properties at massive discounts across the country,” Taylor Abegg, II, CEO of Alpine stated in the press release.

Alpine TLI Group Inc. (APGR.PK) is “One to Watch”

Tuesday, February 26th, 2008

Just about anybody in the market will say business is business, it’s nothing personal. In the world of tax liens and making a profit, there is no more true statement. Some property owner lose their home because they cannot pay their property taxes and somebody else gains. Some may say it’s a scavenger business, but it’s a profitable scavenger business.

Alpine TLI Group Inc., a tax lien and tax deed purchase/real estate Management Company, works with municipalities to resolve delinquent tax lien issues. In the United States, estimates range at over $10 billion per year for tax lien issues with the numbers likely to rise over the coming months and years. As these numbers rise, the company will continue to reap rewards regardless of outcomes envisioned by federal agencies to stem tax issues.

Fortunately for the company, there is always a winner where there is a looser. In the case of tax liens and foreclosures, the winner is Alpine TLI Group Inc. Taken in any fashion the company comes out ahead in the tax lien and foreclosure process. Working with the municipalities in question, the company purchases its choice of tax liens and/or encumbered deeds at rock bottom rates. The owner of the property, which has the lien on it, has a specific period of time to pay the taxes, penalties and interest (typically 8-25% per/yr.) on the lien, all of which goes to the purchaser of the lien (Alpine TLI Group.) If the property is not cleared of the liens on it, the property then goes to the lien holder free and clear at approximately 4-10% of the original value. Not bad work if you can get it.

The current conditions being experienced in the US housing market will likely line-up many valuable properties for the company. Recently, the company announced that it has been granted interest payments due from the purchase of $39.5 million worth of property liens in Maricopa, AZ. Irrespective of current conditions, the future of the company is bright with little if any down side to its operations.

Alpine TLI Group, Inc. (APGR.PK) Aligned to Obtain $20 Million-Plus in Arizona Liens

Wednesday, January 30th, 2008

On Jan. 30, Alpine TLI Group, Inc. announced its participation in the Maricopa, Arizona tax sale, a group of properties whose location and valuation exhibit the potential to accrue more than $20 million in investment opportunity.

Alpine, a full-service property management company vested in tax lien and tax deed purchases based on intensive market research which identifies prime real estate areas, typically acquires tax lien property for between 1 and 20 percent of the property’s value. When redeemed by the owner(s), these properties show an APR return of between 4 and 25 percent. When not redeemed, Alpine holds deed to the property free and clear of all encumbrances.

The Maricopa sale, which closes on Friday, Feb. 1, will award successful bidders like Alpine with the appropriate properties. According to M. Taylor Abegg, II, Chief Executive Officer of Alpine TLI Group, Inc., the Maricopa sale is traditionally one of the largest in the nation, with 28,000 properties being offered in 2008. “As a result of Alpine’s proprietary research and due diligence process, we have identified the properties that have the greatest potential to yield the highest leveraged return. We are confident Alpine will be successful in acquiring a large number of liens on such properties.” Abegg stated.

In the U.S. alone, over $19 billion in property tax liens are offered for sale every year. These properties have the potential to generate more than $1 trillion in profits, either through owner redemption via the payment of principal, interest and penalties (which are forwarded to the lien holder through the presiding local agency), or through acquisition, as when the fees remain delinquent for a specified period and the property “goes to deed”, usually for as little as 5 to 10 percent of the property’s actual value.

In the modern economy, some jurisdictions have more than $100 million in uncollected annual property taxes. This can result in significant cash flow problems. Alpine is committed to assisting these local tax jurisdictions by ensuring their operating revenue remains sufficient to prevent insolvency. Alpine is also dedicated to assisting owners who want to redeem their properties by paying past due taxes.

Alpine TLI Group, Inc. (APGR.PK) Profiled in “Larry Oakley’s Comment Column” on WallStreetCorner.com

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

As a result of the downturn in the economy, there are more delinquent property taxes than ever before. Counties and local governments need tax revenue to operate and are desperate to collect the past due taxes. With 2,600 counties offering more than $10 Billion in tax liens annually, the potential market is so large that tax lien companies like Alpine TLI Group need only capture less than one half of 1% of this market to provide substantial returns.

Alpine TLI Group Inc. is a full service tax lien and tax deed purchase, research, and property management company. Alpine specializes in identifying and researching properties that have the propensity of creating a highly leveraged investment opportunity through the purchase of real estate tax lien certificates and tax deeds.

To capitalize on this opportunity, Alpine has assembled a team of highly qualified marketing, financial and operational individuals who have studied and participated in the tax lien industry including CEO M. Taylor Abegg, II. This is a cohesive team, that has worked together successfully in the past, and is focused on turning Alpine into a profitable financial opportunity.

Alpine TLI has registered to participate in the first big tax sale of the year in Maricopa County, Arizona. This sale will begin on Jan. 17th and continue through Feb. 1st. Historically, Maricopa has offered over 20,000 tax liens for sale with a total property value of over $2 Billion. Maricopa offers many opportunities for Alpine to pick up liens on property for as little as 1% of the property value.

The company has also implemented advanced GPS technology to assist in property research and inspection. Recent developments in GPS mapping technology and software have enabled Alpine to increase daily property inspections by more than 150%.

Conservative Speculator Larry Oakley stated, “I like the fact that APGR can realize as much as a 5000% profit on some of the tax liens they invest in, and in the worst cases, its profit should still be rather attractive.” Mr. Oakley stated, “My opinion is that because of the present situation in the real estate market, APGR has an enormous opportunity to develop huge appreciation potential.”

On the other side, investing in Alpine TLI does present some risk as it is subject to direct and indirect consequences of changes in the political, economic or social forces that govern the viability of the tax sale industry. Alpine can only remain viable so long as Alpine’s tax sale fund continues to be profitable and Alpine is able to continue to acquire tax lien certificates
