Sometimes people think it has to be difficult to make money in RE investing. There is also a saying, don’t look a gift horse in the mouth. If you can’t figure out how to make $ on these deals where the owner is truly motivated what are you learning on this site? Are you ready to invest your money in S FL. when you live in Dallas? I hardly think so. I prefer to invest my $ in my own backyard. My point is work the markets where the motivated sellers are instead of trying to find the proverbial needle in a haystack. When a seller is truly motivated you have the latitude to structure a deal that can work for everyone. Meet with these sellers and figure out a way to put the deal together from all the different techniques posted on this site or, if you haven’t already done so, make the commitment and Educate yourself and you will see the possibilites. How many of these sellers have you contacted? Do me a favor and contact just one or two and post the info on this site.
