New to

:help I am new to investing / purchasing properties,specifically single family homes .I’m from southwest Louisiana , perfect area since the hurricane in 2005.Plenty of cheap properties available coupled with our share of foreclosures. I am not sure how to approach my first property i.e as a wholesale deal to obtain operating capital for first deal to continue ?. Damaged credit as of most in this area and short term employment and limited income ,paycheck to paycheck. I have been gathering knowledge and information for the last couple of years but I think I am more confused now than when I first started to many options available but most I don’t completely undrstand or qualify for.I just need simple information to get started with first deal .
