The odds are very much against you if you believe that there are dozens of people for you to compete with on every deal. You will never be the first to a deal if you think you are going to be beat. In fact it probably doesn’t work where you live because you live there.
I’m not trying to give you a hard time (actually I am). You won’t get anywhere with the attitude that there is to much competition, or there isn’t enough equity where you live.
Do you think that all the people who post their success stories on this site are just doing it to have something to do, or do you think there is some truth to the stories? Yes it will work where you live! Yes you can buy Foreclosures! Yes you can buy preforeclosures! Yes you can buy homes for 50% of FMV! Heck you can even get homes for 10% of FMV! And yes you can do this business with no money or credit!
If you don’t believe it can be done, then you can’t do it. Get over your hangups and give it a shot. All the people on this site aren’t just blowing smoke.
