The Game is Rigged: Time to Redesign Our Broken Real Estate Model
Becca Chacko

Honestly, purchasing our first investment property was a nightmare. In the Los Angeles market, it was very difficult to compete for the attention of the realtor from other “better-qualified” buyers, so we missed out on many opportunities. Eventually, we learned how to better play within the confines of the system and ended up finding (mostly out of luck) a decent property which we still have till this day. 
If I could share any advice: Be prepared. Be uber-prepared (proof-of-funds letter, pre-approval, etc), before you start shopping for a home. Seems like a simplistic point, but this is still something which is overlooked by many home buyers.
