In my opinion, your age will only be a deterent IF…
- You have not learned “Yet” to be confident in your dealings.
- You have not learned the subject matter at hand adequately.
Take a look in the success stories here, there is one that I know of where two “Youngsters”, ages 18 and 19 closed a deal.
There are also some participants on the main board here that are in your age range.
Bottom line, as long as you are dealing with a motivated seller who has a problem NEEDING a solution, and you can provide one, while making money, then your age should not be a deterent.
Just be confident and convey that attitude, and you will be fine.
P.S. I was in my mid twenties when I began, well, in my twenties anyway, and I know I looked young for my age at the time. It was NEVER a problem for me.
I’m now in my thirties, and wondering what happened to my youthful appearance.
