Hi Jay, I strongly agree with Travis’ post because it is how I started out in REI 12 years ago. No books, no courses, no money, I just started looking at houses and making offers. He is correct in that the money will come to you. My first seller decided to sell his house to me with no money down and he financed the whole amount. (I think he felt sorry for me). My second seller had such a good deal that the realtor decided to put up the money for the down payment and became my partner. None of this was planned, it just happened. I find it sad that so many people here never get past the reading and taking courses phase. You have absolutely nothing to lose by starting to look and make offers.
