Keith, You personally don’t need credit to purchase properties even you if you have a bankruptcy on your credit report. You can build your credit standing up by yourself see www.creditinfocenter.com for suggestions to do it yourself. I have done it myself and I have a rather good credit score but I am aiming for a 700 to 800 range! Having excellent credit does make it better if you planned by purchasing conventionally not by being creative minded. I have found that by being creative minded I don’t have to worry about my credit status in purchasing properties.
Keith, There are over 1000 ways to buy and sell properties creatively and I have been doing it for 9 years so don’t give up hope in real estate investing there is a light in the dark tunnel of life for you, sir. Hope this is helpful for you!!
