Ok, here is my situation. I have no money to put down, my credit is shot and I lost my job TODAY, 3 WEEKS BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!!! I have bought Dean's book How to be a Real Estate Millionaire and have read it. I have also been a visitor to this site in an attempt to gain valuable information for awhile. I am tired of working my tail off for someone else only to have them let me go! I want to be my own boss so I never have to worry about being laid off again! I want the freedom to be able to do what I want, when I want and I want to make TONS AND TONS of money! In terms of real estate, I would really like to be able to find foreclosures (or pre-foreclosure, short sales, etc.) fix them up then resale them for a profit. I need help on how to get started. Any (and I mean ANY) advice would be greatly appreciated.
