Today I placed my first two(2) of twenty(20) bids on REO's. I've been advised by others on here to get myself an RE attorney, or to go out and have the properties inspected by an inspector, but being stubborn have decided not to(can't afford to is more like it). So, therefore I gave my agent the go ahead on placing my bids for me. I'm determined to succeed in my REI ventures and will just have to learn the hard way if necessary, but I feel pretty confident in myself. After all, I've convinced my agent and his partners that I've quite a bit of experience investing in properties. So, pray for my success(es), as I continue to pray for each and every last one of your successes.
