Short sale buy to rent purchaseThis is a preliminary enquiry. I have a friend who is a UK citizen and resident but who has approximately $100,000 to invest in a US property. He is looking for a maximum capital gain over 4 to 5 years. He is hoping to buy a short sale to maximize his return. I am a UK citizen but a US resident living in Bellingham. I am considering partnering with him in this venture. I have seen a couple of properties that may be a fit but I have no idea how viable the idea is and how straightforward it would be to get a mortgage etc..
