There are deals in every market throughout the country. Each local market is different in it’s pricing. However creative real estate techniques work in a higher priced market also. The numbers are just different.

First you have to learn your local market like the back of your hand. Only after knowing your market can you recognize a great deal.

Even in hot seller’s market’s there are people that need to sell quickly. Divorces, job transfers, behind in mortgage payments, deaths and many many over situations where owners need you to take their properties off their hands.

You may be looking at unmotivated sellers. The motivated ones, like the ones I mentioned above often will discount their prices substantially.

I have just completed the course and have been reading the message boards here. I have seen a lot of properties for 25K - 50K on the board. I live in Northern NJ and have never seen a property for that price. My question is, can this program work in this area, and can it be done by someone with little caash and poor credit? Thanks for the help!
