Real estate can be a rather frustrating venue to start yourself off in, as it takes quite a bit of money to be able to do just about anything. It's also important that the first deal you end up going through with is one that will be profitable to you rather quickly, or profitable at all for that matter. Sometimes it is best to start with a foreclosure if you are looking to increase your profit margin, and with the right one you can come close to doubling your money.
A house in foreclosure for sale is rather easy to find, although you may have to do a bit of traveling to find one that is worthwhile. Generally the biggest problem with someone who is either starting out in real estate or investing in home foreclosure is that they will spend way too much money on something that is not worth nearly what they spent. Going negative like this can put you in the hole for the future, which is why those sort of mistakes are what you can only really afford to make further on in your 'career'. Generally for most homes that are being foreclosed upon, you can expect the price to drop the longer it takes them to finish the foreclosing. This is why most people snipe houses that are in the middle or end of the process.
You also need to keep in mind that if you wait too long to try and profit off of a foreclosing house, you may end up missing your mark and not having the ability to get it in the end. Thus, it is possible to wait too long and mess yourself up. It is important to find the right gap of time to make your move, especially since real estate is without a doubt one of the most demanding fields when it comes to getting your time right. The good thing about it is that you don't consistently have to keep putting in effort to make your money like other jobs, but instead keep track of where homes you are looking at are in their deals and how much they are currently being looked at for. You can most often catch the people who are desperate to sell their homes because of how long they've been up to sale and get a great price if pulled off correctly!
