Real estate investment in California, as a matter of course, involves buying and selling real property. An investor may decide to sell a piece of real property as part of an investment plan, such as after purchasing a distressed residential property and rehabilitating it. A sale may also be a result of conditions that require an investor to get out of a bad investment.
