Hello, I'm new here. I just read the entire book, and listened to some of the previous conference calls, and although I understand most of the information, there is a ton of it to have to understand. I'm very motivated to get started, but a little unclear about how to go about doing it. I have very little knowledge of real estate except for what I have read so far. There are a lot of questions that I had that weren't really addressed in the book.
I'm 25, married, we live at her mother's house in San Antonio at the moment. I'm not working and have very little money in the bank. My wife's mother is helping us right now and I'm about to go to school with the help of loans and grants. Having said that, the only way I'm going to get started in real estate right now is by assignment of contract.
I have no money so the coaching program is out of question (how much is it anyways?)
The Automated Forclosure Finder is like $200 and I don't have that either, I guess I would have to just find a way to advertise like in a paper or something, but even then I have no money really unless I borrowed it.
I heard that finder's fees are illegal in Texas so if that is true can I actually do this?
I also have no idea about contracts or how exactly I would make it all work, would I need a realtor or lawyer or could I just do it all myself working with the seller and buyer?
I really have no money of my own to use here, so is there absolutely no money involved?
Thanks for any help you can give.
