Investors can execute this investment strategy in several ways. For example, investors that prefer a short-term approach might buy several properties with mortgages and then hold them for only three or four months in the hope that their value will increase. Conversely, an investor can take a longer-term approach by buying a single, moderately priced property and renovating it to "flip" it for a profit.
