I've been selling real estate agent for over 20 years. I've grown up in the real estate business as my family owned a smaller real estate firm outside of Philadelphia. As a family we bought, sold, rented and flipped homes long before it became popular as shown on the various TV shows and "no money down" real estate courses that are now readily available. In other words I have personally done what you are thinking of doing. 20 plus years of real estate experience.
