A friend of mine is going through bankruptcy ,and is going to lose the house. I would like to make this my first rental property. When and what should I do to get this property? I am new to this and I am in need of information. If someone can point me to the forms or what to read to learn the proper way to go thought this it would be gratefully appreciated. Or should i just let it go for a starter house? I don't even know if this is the proper place to post this. I have until January 2013 before the sheriff sale.
