Welcome and Get Ready!
You’re about to get a crash course in real estate investing from someone who’s been there and back, through thick and thin. But let me warn you, what you’re about to read may also change your current view of investing and truly get you to think. But don’t worry, there’s light at the end of this informative tunnel. Read to the end, it’s worth it.
No Fluff, Only the Facts
If you’re like me, you don’t want to be manipulated by reading only the mushy “sugar coated” stuff about getting rich quick, or how easy it is. You want to read about what’s really going on and how it can personally affect and/or benefit you.
Have you noticed that as the economy changes, the gurus shift their sales pitch and roll out a new path to riches in real estate?
When real estate was booming from 1999 to 2005, people said buy and hold was the way to wealth; crazy notions like pre-construction were all the rage; and it seemed everyone and their uncle wanted to get into rehabbing and flipping. When things imploded, as they now have, the gurus are telling you that buying foreclosures, doing short sales, or making offers on REOs (Bank owned properties) is the ticket to riches.
Now, it is definitely true that a particular type of economy makes certain strategies work better than others. But the point is that there are tried and true investing principles that also work and are effective regardless of the state of the economy.
As such, I am not about to tell you about a new-fangled real estate strategy. Truth is, there’s nothing new under the sun. Things may sound new, or be presented as updated and cutting edge, but it’s all just a twist or a slight variation on things that have been used in the real estate market for decades.
The rest of this page will describe what you’re truly getting into instead of finding out through trial and error that there were too many obstacles you didn’t see coming. Too many obstacles that can not only hurt your pride, but your wallet too.
You’ll also be pleased to know that there is a better way, an easier way that just makes sense. But before we can get to that wonderful place, you’re going to need a solid perspective in order to make an educated decision on which path may be better for you to embark on.
Please keep in mind that you’re about to see real estate from the eyes of someone who practices it daily. Someone who knows what it takes to purchase in the right market and of course, someone’s memoirs of real world experiences from all facets of creative and traditional real estate investing.
And the best part about what you’re about to learn? I’m not selling anything. There’s no product, manual or tapes to buy, only knowledge of what goes on in the real world accompanied with an opportunity to beat the game.
