There are unbelievable opportunities of investing in real estate everywhere, but don’t count out your backyard. Some of the best deals that you can ever find are right in your own neighborhood. By building your network of friends and neighbors the opportunities are endless. Buying local allows you, the Investor, to do something good for your community. Before you know it, one family leads to two, then three and four. Plus, there is nothing more satisfying than taking an old eye-sore of a property, making all of the necessary changes and then driving by it while running your daily errands knowing that you had a part in making it all happen.
