Real Estate Deals - Common Misconceptions
Are high-profit real estate deals only for the wealthy? Is it possible to buy with no money down? Do you really have to know the "right" people? Let's answer by looking at some of the myths of real estate.

Last spring, I was invited to go to Philadelphia and participate
in a "real estate bubble" discussion on Ch 8's "Money Matters
Today." Television reporters, newspapers, and media hype love
