Understand that most properties cannot be bought with the ideas you have. Only a very small minority. Most of the properties in the MLS are not candidates for the ideas that you have.
You will also find that in a strong real estate market, few people will need to use the ideas you present. They can just do things the usual way and get full market value for their properties in a fairly short time.
When you have an investment program that is not working you have two choices: move to a different environment where it will work better or else change your approach to something that will work better where you are working. Either is possible.
This is a steal from my own post for beginners. If you haven’t read it before, I recommend it. However, I may be biased. You can find it on the main board of this CREONLINE.COM website by putting “beginners post” into the archive search function there near the top.
