About Me: 

I got interested in real estate several years ago but thought the only way to be in real estate was to be a realtor. That didn't really appeal to me, I wanted to own property and have rentals, etc. Three years ago I lost my job and had to take a job at $60K below what I had been making, I drifted through two years before I realized something had to change, I saw an infomercial for a different REI course and that's when I realized you could be in real estate without being a realtor. I went to the free class, read what seemed like a million books, and realized I needed help. Long story short I found DG and am well on my way to making a change for myself. I started in real estate investing January of this year (2012) and I went all out on this. Look forward to getting motivation on this site, thanks to all. Smiling

Overcoming fear

It's a pretty common topic, but I saw this today & thought I would share.

Kind of fun!

Your going to enjoy this real estate investing. Really a lot of fun. Wish I could do it full time. Someday? I started about a year and a half ago. I now have 6 rentals, and have been making offers on my future 7th! Passive cash flow is so great.I know you'll like feeling like a bigshot looking for the next big profitable deal. I like searching for houses. I have several sending me listings all the time when they come available. I have 2 area's about hour apart that each have their own HUD realator area's. So list's from both. Of course my local realator, Plus a Broker who sells for Bank REO properties. Lots to look over,Explore.Have fun! Layman T. Scott President of Scott Housing & Rentals,LLC

I have done all the things that I have learned: networking,signs, ghost ads, build buyers list, getting in touch with realtors willing to work with investors, subscribe to softwhare programs to get foreclosure properties, etc. etc., but I am still not making any offer, because I do not know how go about getting the contract done and match it to the buyer for an assignment ot double closure.
Can anyone please tell me what to do in practise and help me move on to get my first deal done?
I live on SS funds and it is not funny anymore!
Thanks in advance

Time and Reading all the books

Time and Reading is helping me change the mind set of limitation. My consciousness is shifting to all things are possible. I am on my way and participating as I shift mind set to I can I can I will I will I do I do I do what works and I am not giving up. Karen Lambert
