This is my first time posting in the forum, DG has a great setup here. Deans books have gotten me VERY interested in real estate investing. With that being said, I find myself getting frustrated at the consistent rejection of my offers on REO properties. I live in Las Vegas, one of the top 3 cities in the country for foreclosures. I have put in about 15 offers, and I have yet to get one under contract. My real estate agent has a program that sends me properties that match my criteria, and I usually submit offers within a week of the property being listed. I am offering cash, with no contingencies, and I regularly offer well over the list price. For example, I recently offered 82,000 for a 2 bedroom house that was listed at 72,000. I did not get it. I am looking for any insight about how I can make my offer stand out, and hopefully get an offer (or offers) accepted. I include a proof of funds with the offer, and I usually give the bank 3-5 days to respond. Any insight is appreciated. Maybe I am just being unreasonable. If I am, please let me know.
