WOW

I have been trying to get in touch with other DGers in Tx for a while now and all of a sudden they are everywhere. Simply awesome.
Yes, of course, Alex. Check out the REI group, SouthCentralTexas. Link is below in my signature. That group will be as big and as successful as "we" make it. It is all up to us. We need to network!!! join it and then start inviting others to join with us.
Alex, I plan to go where, and do what I need to for REI. We can definately help each other out in Houston and beyond. I have some ideas for Galveston also. My brother use to live in Spring so I am familiar with the north area
( a lil). What part are you in?

Scott

Hey tellajoe
You have to decide what strategy you are going to be using
Start by getting Deans books if you have no money to buy them then send me a PM and post your email
I will send you a mini book from Dean of a clash course in Real Estate Investing
You can get an idea of where to get your funding by reading that mini bool.
Look forward to tyour response.

The rehab is done...

I know it took a while but first time is always challenging.... I found out that I could have done things in a different way for faster results but It's been an experiense for me and besides I learnd a lot about the actual work that is done in a house thanks to my cousin (General Contractor).
I contacted the mortgage broker yesterday so she can pre qualify a couple of buyers that are interested in the house.....
Hopefully I get good news soon!

Another "Houstonian" REI looking for help!

Alex,
I've been reading your posts and it sounds like you're almost at the end of the rehab and ready to sell. Good Luck. Sell this one and find another.

I'm realitively new to real estate investing also. I bought and sold a couple of my own homes and made good money on them and that got me hooked on real estate years ago. I just never did anything about it until now. I have had my own remodeling company for the last 16 years and I thought this could be a perfect match. I saw one of Dean's infomericials and ordered his 'Be a Real Estate Millionaire' and 'Profit from Real Estate Right Now' books and just devoured them, high lighted them, etc. After I got connected up with the website, I started doing what I thought were the important things. I didn't go to last year's edge event, but I ordered the study at home course. WOW!!! I drive around a lot in my business and I bought a DVD player and plugged in the headphones and listened to them all, over and over. I would even pause them whenever a question was asked, answer the questions, and then listen to their replies. I also got the Automatic Foreclosure Finder and the Automatic Probate Finder. I even went so far as to get the 800 number from COA and have recorded all of the scripts. I went out and put out some bandit signs (didn't know they were illegal) and received one call from a guy who called me on a Friday and was being foreclosed on that Monday. Oh, well. He was upside down anyway. Maybe I'll get a chance at it either as a foreclosure or an REO.

I don't mean to be so long in this post, but I'm really trying to do this because I know RE is the way to go. I have a passion that won't let me quit. I also interview an agent (who happens to be a broker) and told her what I was trying to do (the Matt Larson 25 to 1 strategy) and she agreed. She also gave me the names and contacts in two mortgage companies and a title company. Man, I felt like now was the time. She started sending me all the foreclosures and REOs that fit my criteria (100k and less). I had also built a buyer's list of around 12 buyers with their criteria. I thought I was all set for success. I started making offers. The first time it was 20 offers (sent by e-mail). Two of them came back requesting the long forms, but were eventually rejected. I then put in another 40 offers. Nothing accepted. I even joined the Success Academy, went in hock for $6475, and basically was sent to a website that has a study course, and a 'coach' called me 3 times the first month asking if I had any questions. Most of the information I was studying were things I had already learned, but I kept going anyway. I called the 'Success Academy' and was told that now they were there to help with any questions and/or advise me with alternate strategies. Basically, I was told to 'hang in there. It's a numbers game.' I actually do beleve he is right. It's just so hard to read all of the success stories and feel like you've put so much effort, time, and money into this and have no returns. Maybe I need to partner with a few people on a few deals first. I'm not sure what to do other than not quitting. There are so many other methods that need to be explored. I just need to find the right one. Perseverence!

EHCO....

Thank you very much for stopping by this blog and sharing your story and thoughts!!!
It looks to me you have done a lot of work so far.... which is good! I thik the key here is to keep trying until something happens. Are you in Houston?
I am also a member of the succes accademy and have 3 of Dean's book plus I am constantly looking for info about RE online.
The rehab is done just waiting for some of the interested buyers to get approved for financing, if it does not happen soon we are going to rent it since we have a couple of people interested in lease option.
Good luck in all coming work and let's keep in touch!

Close - Kind of

Alex,
I'm actually located the the Cypress area, but my remodeling business takes me from just west of I45 westward around through Spring, Cypress, Katy, Sugarland, and all points inbetween. I'm doing a kitchen right now just south of Memorial and Kirkwood and will be starting a bathroom project in Missori City after that. I keep a voice recorder in the vehicle with me since I drive around a lot and it allows me to record FSBO signage info as well as other pertinent information on the go.

Are you a member of the RICH Club? They meet the first Sat. of every month. I've been able to meet some good contacts there. Give me a call when you can and let's talk. My cell number is 713 530-8328.

Alex, If you2 decided to meet with SCT from Houston then that changes things. We are still working on the place for the meeting. Input needed.

I would luv to join u2 for a Rich club meeting when I get down to that area. Probably the April meeting.

Alex, I have a book sugestion for you. It's called Millionaire Mindset by Gerry Robert. It's a great book. You can download it for free.

We also haven't heard anything about your remodel house recently. Any new leads? Did you sell it already? What's the good word?

Scott

A piece of advice.....

I was suggested to change the siding of the house since is only a small part of the front of the house and it's in bad shape the paint wont cut it...most of it is brick so we have decided to take care of that....
should not take long hopefully my cousing can come to help me out..Eye-wink

Reached a goal

Hi Alex and other REI's just wanted to stop and say I found my first buyer to add to my buyers list. It happened while attending jury duty yesterday (alot of diverse folks there and interesting folks there) for the first time. Small talk lead me to mention that I was a real estate investor and to find out that the gentleman was going to be looking for a house in the near future. We exchanged contact info and I'm pretty excited. So my friends like Dean says tell eveyone you are a real estate investor u never know who needs a house. Especially at jury duty lol, thx for reading.

New to DG REI

Just joined DG & rec'd his books. Scanning the forums & came across your "Houston" page. I'm presently in the Corpus area. I'm going to try to set up a contact page on the forum for DG members to contact each other. I'd like to get together w/other DG members in this area. I'm glad you set this page for Houston up. I have a friend in Cut and Shoot near Conroe, TX (N of Houston).
Hope we can get together later on. I have sent a PM to "StudentScott", hoping I'll be able to attend one of his South Texas REI meetings. Until later,
DAN
