The key to real estate that not many people know about is that you don’t always have to go through the bank. You just need to be creative when dealing with the seller. Start taking the steps now to improve your credit. Also, look into buying a real estate course. I bought one and it has greatly improved my education and greatly sped up the process of knowing the ins and outs. The courses are pricey, but I believe that if you take the necessary steps, the price of the course will pay for it self many times.
Remember that real estate is all negotiable. Although a house is a house, in a technical sense, you could negotiate to have the seller give you the house for free or a few hundred. Although it’s not always likely, it is “technically” possible. But just remember, negotiate negotiate negotiate. That is what it is all about.
