Any suggestions for how to buy single family homes at a discount? I'm an experienced investors with a buy and hold plan. When I was buying, I was getting foreclosures and fixing them up.

Foreclosures will start to cascade in next year or two. Right now credit is tight and there’s not a lot of product out there. Honestly you may have to look in alternative cities in your area to buy, try to find some hidden treasures in areas with good underlying employment indicators. Best decision might be not buying now but waiting another 1-3 years till there’s a recorrection

My investment was about 70% of the after repair value. Looking to start buying again but doubt foreclosures are the way to go right now.

Hello, I am wondering if I should sell my house or wait a few years. I am in GA. I was initially selling to move to a better school district for my foster daughter. The new area may be potentially safer as well. If I put the house on the market now, people will come in, I am facing exposure to covid, I am working from home. If I don’t put it on the market, the market may crush soon. Dilemma....

EFA is another trade betting on the economy strengthening. This ticker is developed markets X-US.

This morning is a good example with the ticker up barely, but he long down significantly. It is easy to over react and over trade it.
I got in when the election was pretty well sealed and figured Biden would be much better for global trade and global companies.
