On to deal 6

Closed on a property on Friday. Work began today to transform this place into something someone would want to buy.

Placed an ad on Craigslist "Know Of Any Abandoned Houses" (We pay a $500 referral if we close) and was contacted by the owner. He said his house was empty! He was asking $23K for his 3/1 in a small town. Followed the suggestion in one of Dean's books and asked him if he had any offers on it yet. He said "Yes; one guy had offered him $18K for it and he would have taken it but they guy wanted to pay him in 3 payments" So with JUST ONE QUESTION I go the asking price down almost 22%! So I bought it. Looks like $8K to $10K work needed. Will rent for $600 easily but hope to sell it. Always good to have more than one exit strategy.

Gain the EDGE 2013 – A movie of your life, starring YOU as a real estate investor!

The Gain the EDGE 2013 is now in the history books. It was an awesome event and there was so much great information, inspiration, content and take-aways for every DG Member that attended.

The key with any training event is what do you do with the information now that you have this life changing information at your fingertips!

In my presentation at the EDGE I spoke about how your life is a movie. You are the star of this movie and you portray a person that has had enough and wants more out of life. You are entering the treacherous waters of real estate investing!

EDGE 2013 Event

Am at the IE party in Scottsdale, AZ. Had a blast today with our Team #13 with Tammy Reoche as a ringleader. What more do you want. Weather is great, people are great, collecting lots of business cards for networking, learning new things to do (I mean really do on the spot) and creating confidence as we are going along. Off to the dinner party. It's so cool to meet our stars in person. They are so nice and so willing to share RE nuggets. Folks try to be here next year. It is so worth it!

Thanks so much to the DG family, here and Insider Elite. My first wholesale deal closed today and got $10,000 CASH! Finally put my head down and sure enough in 60 days a deal done. I have another deal that will close by the end of the month (a HUD house) and another wholesale deal with contracts signed, so That's 3 deals for April.

South end housing rehab program a success

When real estate mogul Dean Graziosi, famous for his infomercials, rolled into town in 2011 and announced that he was investing $5 million in foreclosed homes in south Warren and Eastpointe, some officials were skeptical.

But, 19 months later, community leaders are sold on the team of Realtors and contractors who have rehabilitated and resold more than 300 homes in south Macomb, giving many declining neighborhoods a new lease on life.

Fina's First

Hello DGers,

I'm new to the site and REI. I spent a good day and a half reading several other members posts and journal entries and was so inspired and moved by many of them. But, I was still a little hesitant about beginning a journal of my own...that was until this evening.

See, earlier in the day I read something that stuck with me. It was about 'being afraid and doing it anyway' (one of Carol's posts). Like I said...it stuck with me. So when I saw that this evenings devotion was entitled, "Do It Afraid!" (Joyce Meyer: Ending Your Day Right) well that was enough confirmation for me. Nope! Not a coincidence. Smiling
