'Non-proceedable' buyers creating a false market?

You're not alone in finding it difficult to invest in a bargain right now.

I'm new to the industry although from the outside it looks like the agents and government are to blame not the landlords.
PS - those people in the video don't look to be doing too badly at all to say they don't work.... Read More
