This is my first forum post here. As of right now, I'm working hard on getting through Dean's book, Profit from Real Estate RIGHT NOW! I've set up my 888 number, working on putting the final touches on my website, and doing some foot work on finding distressed properties in my own back yard. All this and I'm only on the 100th page of the book. *g* I've run across at least two properties within a mile on my place here in Glendale, CA. One was a bank owned house and the other was short sale. I called on both and found out the bank owned place is in escrow. (Damn, why didn't they just hang an escrow sign on the property). I'm still waiting to hear about the short sale.
I am so anxious to get some deals going. This is not just something nice to do, it's a necessity. I want financial independence. My friends know how much I hate my job because of a micro-managing, psycho boss. Having the realization that working for anyone but myself is going to be the same old crap also spurred me on, as well.
I hope to learn a lot from you guys here.
