This is primarily addressed to the newbie. I welcome further input from other experienced professionals.
It can be a great way to turn a quick profit- you buy a house at below-market value, you put some work into bringing it up to market value, you sell it, you put cash in your pocket. Simple, right?

I’m an investor.
I don’t invest money. I invest time, effort and the value of my connections to funding sources.
