As I drove to work the other day, I got to thinking about all the stuff that has happened since I joined this site and got MOTIVATED!
And it's happening in such a short time, since I hooked up with every one here! This journal area is such a great idea. Look at what's happened so quickly:
Decided I was going to get off the stick an do some real estate investing, despite what I didn't know. Had read alot online, and was vaguely focused on what exactly I was going to do, but I knew I had to break the ice somehow. So what do I do first?
Set up LLC with state. Why did I do this first? I had always wanted to invest in real estate, but didn't because I told myself, "Well I need to have an LLC, don't I?" and then stopped. So by doing this first, I REMOVED THAT EXCUSE.
Set up Domain and email with Google, OK, so now what... A few days of aimless floating and then...
Bought "Right Now". I forget what sent me there...
After looking a the forums on DG site, I figured I needed a voicemail box to take calls. So I set up one with www.k7.net. It takes faxes too! It's free!
Received books, spent the next week putting in time each day.
Finished "Right now"
Now that my LLC was formed, set up a bank account so I had a place to deposit first assignment check!
Based on PFRERN book, and I think that audio of Greg Murphy, made up some flyers, put up on boards around town. Looking for "tenant buyers".
Yes, Mother's day. Had a few minutes, took my flyer ad and put it up on Craigslist to see what would happen. Again, looking for "Tenant buyers"
On the way back from M-day, found a forlorn little house in a nice neighborhood. Looks abandoned and overgrown. Got the address!
Surprise! Three responses to craigslist! One wholesaler, and a loan modifier. They think, by the tone of my ad, that I am a seller in distress. That wholesaler might be a good contact later...
The point is, things are happening, once I started doing the stuff in the book, and reading all the great posts here!
