Since I have not "met" most of you, my name is Trish and I am just getting started into the REI program. Have yet to get the books - too broke to do that yet, and I am currently in financial crisis. No money to invest, barely making ends meet, and currently out of work on short term dis due to a shoulder injury. My first questions have been - HOW DO I START!!! Listened to Dean's Instant Equity call, Checked out the forums, signed up for the confrence call tomorrow, and started researching online.
Still not sure how to start setting up my network, find investors etc... no active REIs in my area, don't really know how to set up etc... What I did find is a online source that "claims" to offer $1000 per lead at closing. (one of the end companies for the "we buy houses for cash flyers) Submitted my first property - FSBO down the street from me - know I could probably get a better payout on an independent deal, but right now cash flow to meet expenses and debts is super important to me. We'll see how it goes. I have calls out on several FSBO's in my area, and am researching vacant properties on the area.
Gonna keep reading and researching. I will get into this on a more profitable basis, but anything is a start right????
