The key to flipping foreclosed homes successfully is knowing not only how but also when to do it.
There is a lot of chatter going around lately about the housing crisis and the real estate boom, bubble, etc.

People are saying that all of this media and attention to the fall out isn’t making things any better. Some feel that if people would just let it go and move on that things will improve.

Well, I am an investor and flipper of foreclosed property and do you want to know what I say? I say let them talk. Let all the media spread misery and fear all across the US and beyond. Right about now you are probably thinking that I am a little insane. Well maybe I am in some peoples opinions. However, if you are an investor, maybe you should get just as crazy.

Here is the reasoning behind my claims.

The housing prices were getting so high that it was getting harder and harder to find really great deals. A flood of overnight investors were buying up every piece of ugly property they could find in an attempt at flipping foreclosed homes. This caused home prices to climb to an unrealistic height. For a while there it was taking a good amount of searching to find good houses to flip so people started upgrading perfectly good homes. When that happens you know it is time to get out. The market was just too overloaded.

Now that people are being scared away, the prices are dropping and value is becoming real again. Houses will still get old but there will be a lot less competition for those who stand the test of time. If you didn’t learn about flipping foreclosed homes in this last decade, good for you. Now you will be able to make some real money in it.

There is no question that the abundance of foreclosed properties has presented a unique opportunity for anyone interested in making money in the current real estate market. If you educate yourself, you can make a lot of money right now by flipping foreclosed homes.
