California Tax sales

Has anyone every bought a property at a california tax sale? I'm looking in San Diego county and from all the research I've done you should get a clean title except for a few exceptions (IRS liens). The properties are cheap but as is and seems about as risky as you can get so I'm curious if anyone has went through the process.

l had a client once stop looking at homes because he was going to buy a house from a tax sale, for the amount of the delinquent tax. He thought he could buy one for $25,000, because his dad did in the 70's. A year later he called me and asked to start looking again. Believe me, any such sale will be swarming with deeply experienced investors with very deep pockets. Properties would likely sell for cash and then flipped, and it would be as risky as a trustee sale. I've never been to a tax sale, so if anyone has any experience, l would love to hear a first hand account.
