    What would you go with $150k?

    A few options: Assuming your friend is only playing poker for income and therefore not likely 'bankable', in the traditional sense, you could invest in property with a larger down payment. Smaller multi units - duplex, triplex, etc. may be a good place to start, depending where you are...

    Real Estate Advice for first time home buying? {primary residence}

    Lots of good advice here. If it were me, I would spend some time hitting different real estate offices, asking for a 'Bank Owned' list. More and more, this is something realtors are prepared to give. We were out in NV this week and stopped by a Century 21 office because they had a sign on...
