Today (11/28/09) I join the investing journal with hopes that I don’t make too much of a fool of myself. I have been interested in REI for a long time but I'm ashamed to say that I have not taken any action until this last week.
I had purchase a Short Sale course from a so-called guru only to find out that there was no support in place for the novice. Only if I was willing to pay another big bucks over the big bucks I paid for the course. Not me! That’s when I saw Dean’s info commercial early one morning and I mean early, I said to myself this guy seams sincere. What the heck, I ordered the book and I found it to be everything he said. With the help of a realtor friend of mine I found a house in a bread and butter subdivision (3br/1-3/4 bath) that the homeowner was going to loose in foreclosure. With the knowledge I got out of the course, my friends help and the motivation from Dean’s book I tied the house up(option Contract), called the bank stopped the sale (had it postponed) and now am in the process of putting the short sale pack together. I hope to submit it middle of next week and start to negotiate with the bank to buy this house.
I’m telling everyone I know about what I’m doing as Dean says in all his videos and in his book. I’ve printed up some cards of my own and I passing these out everywhere. I want everyone to know that I am starting this with absolutely no money, and no credit for I am broke, without a job and determined. But, I have one thing going for me, and that is my “P-H-D” which means I’m “Poor-Hungry & Determined” to make this work.
So I’m going to post all of my experiences here so that I can get all the criticism, suggestions and anything else that this group wants to share so that it will work for me. I realized about half way through life that in order to really succeed you need people and you have to WANT to help people. I am determined that as this journey progresses I will not only progress with it BUT I will help any and all that want to come on this journey with me and help them succeed also.
I have read 75% of the Profit from RE Right Now book and I’m going to read the Be a RE Millionaire as soon as I finish it. I am hoping that these 2 books will propel and guide me to my goals and inspire me to inspire others also. I am also hoping, that when I get my first deal done, I am going to join Dean’s “Real Estate Success Academy” I don’t know what it cost but I am going to join because I want to make changes in my life and help others to make changes in theirs. I know that this is the way to go.
Well that’s it for now I’ll be back.
