Newsflash: New to real estate investing and I qualify for an FHA loan. How can I leverage this to get into a deal with experienced investors?

I would like to get into real estate as an investor who stays in the background. Since I have never bought a home, I know that I qualify for an FHA loan, and can secure a very low down payment. Is there any way this can be leveraged, in such a way that an experienced real estate investor would want to do a deal with me?

Newsflash: Purchase agreement legal description of property T/W and S/T meaning.

Hi Folks,I have placed an offer on a cottage property. The property legal description includes T/W RS##### (Together With) and S/T (Subject To) RS#####. Anybody have legal/realtor experience know if this is a bad thing? I know cottage country can be kind of sketchy at times. Also, due to a very short closing date, my lawyer cannot get the septic documents in time to ensure it was built with a permit. It is a 1985 build, wondering if it is risky to close the deal without the “Septic Use Permit” in my possession? (Ontario, Canada)Thanks for your replies..

Newsflash: Rent to Own to Rent

Bought a house just under 2 years ago after renting for a few years. Considering selling the house and going back to renting for awhile in the same city. Advantages of selling would be 1) Can make a profit in the current market. 2) Increased flexibility 3) Fixed monthly expenses.Has anyone done this recently? How did you decide to sell? Did you regret going back to an apartment/townhouse lifestyle?I know this is a personal question and there is no formulaic answer, but I am interested in this community’s feedback.
