So i've been having some trouble getting started. Im trying to start with assignments so i started looking into FSBO's and all the ones ive seen in my area are all redone and are close, if not at, FMV. So then i started looking into preforeclosures again and went to my local courthouse to find the people working there annoyed and very unhelpful, but did get a website claiming to have all the info. Im having trouble with my comp so i havent explored it in full yet. I was emailing a friend of the family who is a realtor who said she'd get me comps, but instead is telling me she has no idea how i am going to make any money in this area with the market the way it is and told me good luck. what should i do now? should i place an ad on craigslist looking for a realtor who has experience with investors? i really just want someone who can get me comps and any info they have on foreclosures and what not. i feel like everyone around me is trying to discourage me except my boyfriend and sister. anyone in the same boat?
