Top 10 Mistakes when Buying Foreclosed Properties/Real Estate | Real Estate Investing for Beginners

People make mistakes when investing in real estate (including foreclosed properties) and can cost a lot of money. I covered the most common mistakes in this talk. I also shared tips on how to avoid them.

This *video was taken during the TGFI Financial Literacy Summit last April 2, 2017 at the SMX Mall of Asia.

I was told I only had a few minutes left during my talk and I had to explain everything quickly. I can expound on these in other videos.

Of course, these are just the top mistakes I wanted to discuss in the small time I was given. In the future, I can tackle more real estate investing mistakes that should be avoided.
