    Excellent Video/Story for the new guy in the business. After 25 years of buying and selling Real Estate, I know how important Training is for the New Guys so they can Avoid this type of loss. I did over 1,000 deals before lossong money on one but only lost a little NOT Big money like this “lesson”. Good Reason to Do “bread and butter” deals NOT Big houes. Buy and Sell the price range that Most of your market wants for less Risk. DanTheRealEstateGuy

    I attended a Robert Allen seminar and he cautioned people not to go into a real estate deal without checking things out, particularly if you are investing in a locality where you or members of your investing circle have no in depth and comprehensive knowledge and info.

    STOP paying your debt, (we) the people do have the power: just stop paying (and playing their game). It would be interesting to see who’s got who by the balls, it’s all just a little scammed poker game,…isn’t it?

    I’m curious how you were able to recover from such a huge mistake? Could you tell us a little about the deal you did immediately after this one? What was your next step? I mean how were you financially able to go buy something else while having such a huge loan on the first one and losing $500 every month on it?
