My very first transaction in real estate was definitely my riskiest investment ever and boy have I learned some lessons. I had some money saved that I could use for a potential flip or rental property if the opportunity was right. At the seminar, there were many companies there ranging from real estate attorneys, tax offices that specialized in working with real estate investors and real estate investment companies that bought and sold real estate. We decided to check out the real estate investment company and see what they had to offer. I was excited about the opportunity but a little nervous as this could potentially be our very first real estate investment and the biggest purchase of my life.
