The best way to start learning something is by doing. Of course some preliminary reading can really help. Here are some helpful articles to get you started:
For a quick overview: Bankruptcy Asset Sales Overview
For more in-depth analysis: When the 363 Sale is the Best Route
For analysis of bidding strategies: Alternative Bidding Strategies
Ultimately though, you will need to talk to sellers and see for yourself how different each deal can be. Using our Bankruptcy Assets Database, you can quickly pick deals of interest, read about each sale, talk to sellers and even listen in on an auction or two. By preparing yourself with "practice" deals, you'll be able to better take definitive action when you spot that "sweet" deal you've been waiting for.
