“…are the opportunities actually out there or are the good opportunities few and far between?” There is no “or” here. Both parts of your question are true.
There is no system of property buying that will work everytime. Except maybe to offer full price on MLS listed properties. Then you will not be buying good deals, you will just be buying a lot of properties at market value or over.
Very few properties which are sold are good deals. Thus any good deal buying system will require pulling in lots of properties for “looking at” or “consideration.” These are the candidatates for purchasing. Then it should allow you to efficiently eliminate virtually all of the candidates, to concentrate better on the likely deals.
The infomercials accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative. They will do this whether or not their systems are any better than other systems for buying. But it seems you are wise enough to know better than to believe all the hype.
Even though I recommend John Beck’s program, I feel that the infomercial makes statements that make it seem easier than it is to do what he describes. However, what he describes is possible to do. It will never be as easy as the infomercial makes it seem.
