Heres a great article from Rob Hubbard our new Ready Made Deals Mentor. I often get asked by prospective new investor clients or novice investors the question “What constitutes a good ready made deal?” Therefore, this month I’m going to share with you some of the reasoning that I employ when seeking out potential deals.
