Hi Chad, Your Excuses vs Success columns was a great idea. I’m sure you’ll get lots of great responses to your post, so here’s a quick/brief idea to get your feet wet.
Join your local REI Club (national listings at top of page, click on REI Clubs button) and get yourself on all the wholesalers lists and/or call on all fixer-uppers in the paper…then go see all those houses.
You’ll start to get a feeling for what fixer-uppers look like and are priced at in your area. This gave me the confidence back when I started, to start making all those offers (which is the next step) to get my first deal.
Best of success,
