DiezGejo's Journal

I'm writing because I get so lost in all the information that comes with real estate. As i look at properties I find my self asking questions like how do I know if this is a good deal, or in the right area? As I read through BARM it keeps me motivated and drives me to push for what comes next, but I'm still a little weak on my feet when it comes to taking the first step. I joined the success academy, and to be honest i have not utilized them as much as I need to be due to where I am currently employed. When i think I have a deal, I get lost on how to find all the information that will make me better educated and able to make a smarter decision. Now, I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to how the real estate process works, but I'm ready to make a difference in my life. I'm currently located in a smaller town dependant on oil field to keep it's economy going around here (part of the reason why a lot of 3bd 2ba homes in this area are $300,000+ still). This causes me to look elsewhere for real estate deals, but the problem with that is that my target area is 4 hours away in the town I went to college in. I know it's growth rate and what it's projected to be, as well as great areas with potential properties for cash flow or even short sales, but it's hard for me to get there and do the hand/foot work. Can anyone offer any advice on how I can get more information and become better educated on investing away from where I am located?

I am new also since December 2008. I joined the mentor program and
and it has helped me. I started going through the curriculum until I had several questions that needed an answer. I called and the consultants were very helpful. I spoke with someone directly because my question could not be answered in an email. Once they asked me the strategy I was going to use to obtain properties I was told to go to a different lesson and read that information. The lesson they directed me to pertained to the birdogging strategy that I will be using. Now if I continued to read straight through following each lesson consecutively without calling, I would have missed out on the information I needed for my strategy. Do yourself a favor and call a consultant to help you get on the right track? You will be glad you did. Much success on your real estate journey.
