Price is not the deciding factor in any deal, no matter what the gurus out there try to tell you. Basing your buying decisions on price will end up costing you much more than you thought you saved in the end. By thinking beyond price in your deals and not considering the critical factors such as holding costs, you will get burned.
Focusing on price can also tempt you into markets you don’t understand. There are plenty of companies who will crow about the profits they can make you when you invest in their market, but how do they make that profit? What is the house like? What kind of neighborhood is it? Without the ability to see the property yourself, you’re driving blind into potential disaster.
