And what if the courses cost $5,000? How much exactly would you expect to make on ONE real estate deal? If it’s less than that, you’re not paying attention. What if it were $10,000? Then it would take you TWO whole deals (at bare minimum profit margins) to break even, but you would have the knowledge and experience to do that for the rest of your life. How much does it cost then?
If you’re completely broke now with absolutely no resources, find a way to learn cheaply and find a way to change your mindset. If you currently think $600 is A LOT of money, you have some work to do on your thinking. Then do a deal and spend some of your profits on your education. Rinse and repeat.
I’ll aologize for my tone since it’s not particularly directed at you. However, I can’t stand the whiny, “poor-me, I’m a victim, the gurus owe me” slant to your post. Nobody owes you nothing. If you want to do real estate, you will. And of course you’re asking for sympathy - that’s the whole point of your post. And no, you don’t get the fact that changing your thinking will further your progress toward financial freedom because you’re still stuck.
Read EVERYTHING on this site and then read it again. Come here daily and read the various newsgroups. Find someone in your area who will let you borrow a course. Yeah, yeah, I know - look harder. Then go do a deal.
Sorry, again, but these type posts just tick me off. I promise you that if you stick with it that a year from now you would laugh and be embarrassed by your post. I’m no veteran and this is just one person’s opinion. Hope you stick around…
