Imagine this: You're over 40 years old. You're living in Korea, and you decide you want to invest in US Real estate. Only you don't have any experience in real estate investing, you don't have any networks, and you have no idea where to invest. In fact, you're so new to investing that you actually send over $20,000 via wire transfer to a person's LLC without a contract in place. Sounds like the beginning of another "newbie real estate horror story," right?
