Homeownership today is at an all-time high, and so is the foreclosure rate as a result. As easy credit and a weakening economy takes it's toll, investors can profit in a very unique way. In every economic cycle there is also opportunity. I'm not suggesting one take advantage of people in distress, but merely to recognize how structure transactions in an ethical way in which and investor, with little or no money themselves, can help distressed home sellers improve their situation. All the while, the investor can profit $40,000 to $60,000 or more per transaction.
