Foreclosure Investors in Florida
We have all seen it on the wonderful Foreclosure Flipping show on HGTV that Tarek and his wife buy properties for hundreds of thousands of dollars; site unseen and then go into the house to see; “what did i buy?”   The suspenseful, drama filled action makes for great TV viewership, but the reality is, I would hope NO investor took [...]
