Thank you for the tip, Matt & Dean! I've never thought of using a formula like this. Where does the 70% wholesale method fall into play, or does it not? I know that if you're working with actual wholesale buyers who have the funds to buy homes & flip it to their buyers, they want it lower than what you need it to be, for it to work. How can you make a wholesale deal work with these type of buyers?

Wholesale Formula

Great Weekly Wisdom. Thanks for the tip! Wholesaling just got much easier.

Thanks Dean and Matt for yet another great weekly wisdom. You guys are crushing it!!!

wholesale formula

Thank you Dean and Matt for sharing!

Indeed, it is a simple formula, but you helped clear up something for me so subtly! I had been struggling with "the numbers not making sense" when I factored in rehab costs. Now I know to not worry too much about that, especially if the buyer is looking to buy and hold for rental income!



Weekly Wisdom

Thank you Dean and Matt. Great Post!

I noticed that you are buying properties in Montgomery, Moline, and Kansas City. Is there a reason for those locations? Is the economic situation better there than other places? Is the unemployment going down and housing prices going up there? Just wondering.

Thanks again,
Kevin Addison

Your top four ways for find sellers are exactly what we find to be true in our marketing. We do a lot of mailers and door hangers that bring us that other 10% to 15%.
Just more proof that you guys do this business and pass the REAL and CURRENT info on to your students!


One more added to my list

So last week I did exactly what you said about finding deals on Craigslist. Thanks to you I just got off the telephone to find out that my local bird dog deal went through and I will be receiving a nice paycheck.

By the way: Both seller and buyer were found on Craigslist.

Also I am posting another bird dog deal on this site. Please go look for it and see if it makes sense to you.

Thanks so much.

Wisdom Is Wonderful!

Ain't Life Grand!
Just got home from the buying summit and met soooo many amazing people!
We just looked at two properties yesterday and I am on 14 of my 25:1.
KORY: We really miss you! YOU ROCK!

Another great wisdom!

Dean and Matt,

Thank you for your constant encouragement and reminders! I have been trying to wrap my head around this one because it is hard to be confident about a deal that you are selling when you KNOW the numbers really don't work for a smart investor. It is definitely a different way of thinking and it is very helpful!!


Thanks Dean and Matt

Thank you for the reminder. Yes, it should be this simple. We just want to make it more complicated Eye-wink It just doesn't have to be that way.

Got my pad and paper ready to start getting some offers in. Laughing out loud

See ya next week,

That is an awesome tip! And, if you know the 70% (65% actually) rule, it will fit right in to this formula!! Thanks!!

Great formula

Dean, it feels great to have my girlfriend on board with me now. She's asking me questions constantly which forces me to learn more. Great formula and can't wait to post our first deal together. Thanks

Love all of the tips!

Dean - thanks so much for the way you're constantly thinking of us and providing us with the roadmap to keep us on course!

I've had to be away from the DG site for the last few months. My husband had a massive heart attack, followed closely by losing my mom to breast cancer. I've missed my fellow DGers and the positive energy of this site, and am very excited to finally be able to focus on business again.

Although the market here has drastically changed and this year has far fewer foreclosures than past years, I know that I can create my own opportunity by working the plan.

Best wishes to you all!

A different way of thinking indeed!

You guys are geniuses!! A genius makes the complex simple. A weirdo makes the simple complex! I am glad to belong here!

This is all you need to get deals done!
