Hello to all. I purchased all three of ron legrands courses. Just finished wholesale/retail and leasing. I will be starting fsbo next.
Also in the process of setting up the front and back end of the biz. Will be proofing my biz cards today!!! Have answering service lined up. Newspaper ads will be next. My attorney is reviewing all the contracts i will be using from ron’s courses. Working on the “ant farm”. Have a dedicated office in my home with all the equipment. IE: computer, fax, printers, 3 phone lines, etc. I will be using data quick for online access to sales comps and public records. Looking into screening service for my lease option deals for t/bs. Next I will be looking for a mortgage broker for available funds when needed to secure a deal. will be focusing on ugly houses to wholesale and L/O.
We live in northern california, Shasta county. We have a population of 75,000 just in the city limits. Rural area.
county wide population is about 250,000.
Would not mind networking with others here at home. I Do not see others advertising in any of the newspapers wanting to buy homes. I Wonder where all my competition is? Maybe the know something I don’t? Doesn’t matter. I am moving forward thanks to this site! Thank you.
I just wanted to let everyone know that I truly appreciate this site. Thank you. It is nice to read the help and assistance and encouragement that is given here. I hope soon that I will be experienced and knowledgeable enough to contribute here.
I am almost 44 years old. My wife is disabled and cannot work.
I was laid off from my job two days before my wife was to have major surgery on 11/2/00. I was sure glad that I was studying ron’s courses!!! It has been tough thought. I have taking care of my wife and our 6 year old twin boys while trying to study. Have a daughter in college also.
So I study at night after I put the boys to bed and early in the morning before their up. During the day, I am MR. MOM. So the process is slow but I am almost there.
I am determined to make this work for us. I do not like the alternative. Which is going back to the rat race and the J.O.B.!!!
The Point I am trying to make is do not give up!!! If you really want to be a REI then do it. What’s the worst thing that can happen. I ask myself often. Tomorrow will come no matter what you do. So, Do IT!.
I feel more alive now than I have in a long time. I am scared, excited, and best of all, I am challenged!!! I do not want to look back and regret that I never got involved in real estate investing. I want more time to spend with my twin boys. I want to be involved in their T-Ball, Soccer and other activities. I hope and pray that REI will be the vehicle.
Based on what I read on this site I conclude that this can be done.
I plan I purchasing more courses from this site soon. Bronchick’s and Kaiser’s courses to be exact. I feel like a giant sponge soaking up this new found knowledge. The exciting part is that I will be putting it into action very very soon!
Enough rambling, sorry. Thanks agian to all the folks who contribute to this site. With warmest regards, David
