Stage 1.  One day you wake up early in the morning, you have nothing else to do and you start surfing TV. You stop at one commercial channel dealing with selling homes by owner and realtors. After half an hour you forget about it. But next morning you wake up and the first thing you do – you switch on the same channel. You are sick and tired of your present job and you start thinking about taking up real estate as a career. You don’t have any slightest idea how to invest into property so you buy several books on real estate. After reading them, you feel as an expert and trying to start your first real esta...
