College have been keeping me off of studying real estate, but I just got back and saw Dean's 1st video blog.
I did what he said and tried to find a realtor, but every single one that I contact keep giving me pretty much the same response:
"You need to go get a job before you call my office, kid. You don't even have credit, how are you going to buy real estate? Quit wasting my time."
They wouldn't even let me explain myself and my intentions. I know I'm only 18, but Dean was also 18 when he started out. I just graduated high school and attending college on grants and scholarships. I don't have an income. I have no credit history. But I really want to start assigning deals to get that income and invest in bigger deals.
Can anyone point give me a direction or strategy on what to do next to make real estate something that I can do in my pass time?
Also, I wanted to add that I live in Portland, Oregon. It's one of the the worst real estate market cities right now. The drop has been -8.9%.
I really want to take advantage and start assigning deals to some serious investors who understands my situation, so if you are an investor in the Portland (97266) area and need someone to go find deals for you, I think I can be that guy. I'm just trying to get a big enough cash reserve so that I can buy some foreclosures and REOs at deep discounts, rent them out, then wait for the market to improve again to sell.
If anyone on DeanGraziosi.com knows a big time investor in the Portland (97266) area who could help me out by letting me assign deals to him, please let me know. Thanks!
