By Chris Clothier on Fri, Oct 1, 2010

"Don't Throw out the Bicycle for the Bumps in the Road"!

I love expressions like this.  They speak to the real emotions that real estate investors face everyday and carry that folksy remedy that our parents used as an approach to tough situations.

Today, real estate investors are facing more and more tough situations and some are tougher than others.  The obstacles we face as real estate investors, especially Memphis investors wanting to buy discount properties in Memphis with leverage, seem to come out of nowhere right when we get to the finish line.  We often have that feeling that the road gets a little bumpier just as things appear to be going smoother.  The bumps are getting a little bumpier too!
