Sorry, but there’s no way you can be successful if you live in California. It is the only state in the United States that prohibits success in creative real estate. Oh well!
OK, sorry for the sarcasm. There are plenty of people who live in California that post on this board that are very successful investors. I’m sure you will be receiving posts from them shortly.
Read every tidbit of information on this site that you possibly can. The more education you can get, the better. Ask questions here, and study some more. I am relatively new to this site myself, but after only a couple months, I have completed 2 mobile home deals, and just last weekend purchased 2 more that I will be showing this weekend. I bought them at $700 and $800 and am asking $5,000. It works!
Read my Success Story under the heading “1100% Yield on my First Mobile Home Deal”. Hope it helps. Good luck in your real estate investing future.
