Yes I am in New York actually. I live about 20 minutes north of the city in Westchester. I’ve done about a few L/O deals so far. One in the city a couple months ago in Brooklyn/Rockaways area, but getting to that one was tough but not impossible. What it all comes down to is analyzing situations and moving on them right away. I don’t call out anymore. I get people to call in. That particular person saw my ad, needed help right away, and so I moved in and solved their problem. You guys are absolutely correct about the rising property values. It’s making sellers less willing to accept creative ideas. But if you can manage to convince these people that your solution and benefits far outweigh the conventional means of buying their homes, then you’ve got a shot at getting a L/O done.
