The least you can do is have an opinion - AND STICK TO IT!

If you’re negative and a doomsayer, just admit it and let the rest of us move on with our lives and our educations.

While you’re at it, enclose yourself in a box and declare yourself king of infinite space.

With no money and only 24 days to learn, find, and close a deal, the only way I can think of for you to make money on real estate would be rake the leaves off some.

With no money, quickly you could for example:

  1. Locate investment/rehab property at wholesale price, tie up with contract, and assign to a wholesaler and make a few thousand depending on the deal.

  2. Lease/option with little/no down and assign the option to someone else with a nice down and cash flow every month.

Now get crackin!

Henry,

If you’d read my first post below you would’ve been introduced to two ways that a person could “learn, find,and close a deal” in only 24 days. Actually, it could be done in less time than that.

And the best part is, you could let someone ELSE rake the leaves!

Sorry I didn’t read your post. I usually read post when I think I might learn someing from them and I have read many of your post in the past and I for some reason skipped it this time.

I think you’re right though. Often the quickest way to learn someting is to read up on it. If he orders a course today maybe he’ll have it by Monday, he can read, understand and comprehend it all by Wednesday the 9th. He can find a deal on the 10th, xerox his forms on the 11th, and collect his money on the 12th which would give him 12 days to shop for Christmas presents. Kind of a rush but I’m sure he is a bright enough young man to grasp it that quickly. He probably even has enough time to hire someone to rake his leaves. Who says Rome wasn’t built in a day? He’s not building Rome, he just needs some quick Christmas cash. Next time I’ll know better and read your post first. Go for it Young Buck.

Now that’s more the positive spirit! And hey, I know a small iota of what some of these guys (and gals) here know so imagine all the possibilities!

I was right the first time. RE investing is not something you learn in a few days to make some quick cash and then quit. Sometimes its easier to agree with someone that just knows a lot of big words than to listen to their b*tchin. Its also a lot of fun to watch them pat themself on the back becaused they are so impressed with themselves.
