Anybody that's actively buying houses right now will know that this is most likely not a scam. There are deals o' plenty right now. I have several in the Greensboro, NC area that I'd be willing to wholesale to other investors. - Cashflowing Investment properties for $.35 on the dollar. No hype. Just deals.

Oh my, Quitclaim deeds, this has got to be a scam. Quitclaim deeds convey virtually nothing and no title company would ever insure buying a property with a quitclaim being the sole deed.

Certainly a sign of the times. I am also a little concerned about a simple Quit Claim Deed. In addition, I don't like bidding on homes, thats why I BUY them and SELL them to investors all over the U.S. and branching out to investors world wide.

Atlanta Ga has some of the hotest deals in the country with HUGE upside potential.

BusinessWeek editors Chris Palmeri, Prashant Gopal and Peter Coy chronicle the highs and lows of the housing and mortgage markets on their Hot Property blog. In print and online, the Hot Property team first wrote about the potential downside of lenders pushing riskier, "option ARM" mortgages and the rise in mortgage fraud back in 2005—well ahead of many other media outlets. In 2008, Hot Property bloggers finished #1 in a ranking of the world's top 100 "most powerful property people" by the British real estate website Global edge. Hot Property was named among the 25 most influential real estate blogs of 2007 by Inman News.
