Hedge fund buys 970 homes

Colony capital made a deal with the banks to buy 970 foreclosed homes. They made a deal with the govt to rent them out so the real estate market would not tumble. These homes are in Ca, nevada and az- the worst hit states. They paid an average of 112% of value. And you wonder why we can’t get deals? I tell my students not to pay more than 70% of value.
If you want to know the right way to find deals today, you need to attend my upcoming basic training bootcamp on Jan 26th.
