As real estate investors, it’s important to know your market. For passive real estate investors, you may not be involved in the day-to-day operations of your real estate investments—you might not even be all that involved in acquiring your properties! As busy people, you don’t want to have to sweat the small stuff. What you do want to know is that your investments are in good hands.
The housing crisis acrtually has it's roots in early 2006 and has since cost homeowners trillions of dollars in lost value, underwater mortgages, credit headaches and default nightmares. But, the market has also made it possible for savvy real estate investors to purchase homes at discounted rates and in many cases revitalize those homes to staunch the tide of downward spiraling home prices. Now that home prices in many parts of the country are showing signs of leveling off and in some areas actually rising, it is a good time to actually take note of where you can still find discount investment properties.
