How To Make Money On Underwater Properties

Practically anywhere you look, you can find a real estate guru eager to sell you their own special course teaching you how to get rich with underwater properties. Whether it’s reverse wholesaling or short sales, they have a “unique” personal formula for success in this area.

Unfortunately, you can’t count on many of these techniques to offer consistent profits in the current real estate environment. And even the ones that do work demand a great deal more time and effort than necessary.

On today’s episode, Matt is talking about the best way to handle low equity and underwater properties. Listen and enjoy!
