Good to see a newcomer. Myself, when I started some 4 yrs ago, I bought books (from stores) and a course from another instructor. Same general information from a different angle then Carleton (Givens). That was my start. Over a time I have bought several books and courses from all kind of instructors. Each do have something to contribute.
I do like Carleton’s approaches on buying. BUT I needed an alternitive to HOLDING. “Even if I have 5 million dollars worth of property under control, I NEED to pay bills on Friday!” CASH FLOW was the ticket. Most of the houses I bought, at first, I FLIPPED to generate serious cash flow. When I was secure, then I started looking for property to hold.
