Real Estate Investing
Have you ever heard the old saying, "Buy low, sell high?" News stories about the softening real estate market might scare away some novice investors. Experienced investors, however, recognize weak markets as opportunities to pick up bargains. When there are more sellers than buyers, your chances of getting a good deal go way up. In fact, many investors make more money in a down market than in a strong one. In many areas, now is the time to buy before prices start climbing again. In this course, you'll learn how to make money in any area, in good times and bad, even if you have little money to start with.
