Bought REO properties from a bank for $12,500, resold them to an investor in Peoria for $55,000 the same day.

What made you interested in investing in this type of deal?

Nothing, I got a call and the opportunity was there so I investigated it further, reached out to my network, and just put it together out of thin air so-to-speak.

How did you find this deal and how did you negotiate it?

A friend/banker called me. He wanted 30k, we offered 12.5k, they accepted. I reached out to our network of investors, informed them we had 6 homes for sale in the area, they offered $55k and we accepted

How did you finance this deal?

Did you work with any real estate professionals (agents, lenders, etc.) that you'd recommend to others?
