Introduction

Hello everyone, glad to be here!  This blog is aimed at shedding some light on an underappreciated and misunderstood investment class – distressed real estate.  Even with the recent attention due to the housing meltdown and subsequent recession it is amazing how few people take advantage of the opportunity to make outsized returns for much less risk than the stock market.  I believe this is mostly due to lack of education (which I will humbly attempt to remedy) as well as a bad public image of so called “vulture investors”.

We’ll go into detail why being a vulture investor is a good thing not only because it can be extremely lucrative for you personally (there are worse things in the world) but also beneficial for your business clients and even the community you live in. The following posts will discuss the different ways to get involved in investing in distressed real estate and how this asset class fits in with your overall investment strategy.
