Once you’ve followed your leads and found that one great deal you’ve been searching for, you’ll need to make sure that the property you’re buying is what you think it is, and not just what it is presented to be.

Many people think we have survived the worst of the economic recession, and we are operating in an increasingly stable real estate market that’s on the mend.

In an historically bad economy like this one, there is no shortage of motivated sellers, which means there is no shortage of opportunities for buyers to get creative with their financing terms.

The most commonly-employed strategy for flipping homes (short-term ownership of real estate) is to fix and flip a rehab property.

The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is a government department devoted to subsidizing housing for low-income and otherwise-vulnerable Americans, such as homeless military veterans (HUD-VASH).

There is a pervasive misconception about real estate investment: ride the rising market and avoid the sinking one, and you are sure to be a successful investor.
