flipping REO properties

[b][/b]I have this question for every flippers for finding homes from REO and forclosured homes.

Is it that difficult for flippers like us to buy REO properties from Bank?

I’d like to hold and keep properties for about 6-month and work on the house a little bit for some fix-up and sell it.

I’ve heard the banks don’t like guys like me since I am not liivng in the properties, right?

Well, personally, I don’t think none of their bussiness whether I will live in there or not as long as I paid in full to bank using a hardmoney lender for 6-month loan.

What do you guys think? :-\ :-\
