Look for the shabbiest house on the nicest block in town. Spruce it up. Sell for profit.
That’s a real estate investing recipe for success more often than not, especially if you can discern between money pits and money makers. When it comes to flipping foreclosures, or even purchasing a discounted distressed property as a primary residence, it’s critical to spot the “diamond in the rough” before someone else beats you to it.
Distressed properties are often in less than tip-top shape, but it’s that shabby exterior that is concealing the massive opportunity for riches for those investors who know how to take advantage of great deals when they see them.
