In the years leading up to the 2008 financial crisis, there was a growing segment of the real estate investors that focused solely on undervalued properties. This style of investing is best summed up in the phrase, “Buy the worst house in the best neighborhood.” The investors then would renovate the home, or flip the house, and sell the property for a profit.

Garvin was charged with 1 count of Bank Fraud conspiracy and 5 counts of Bank Fraud. Garvin was first charged back on November 17,
