Ok, so I am starting my journey to freedom. You can follow along as you like. I look forward to hearing from you and hope you may get something out of this also.
I am an American who moved to Canada with my family way back in 1978. I lived there until Nov 2009. Everything I know is Canadian. Living back in the USA has been a long time dream of mine. Some people tell me this is not the time to make this move....but true to my nature, I did what I wanted to do.
I had seen Dean's commerical in Canada, but never ordered them while I lived there. So when I moved home I ordered Dean's books as soon as I could. Went thru them fairly fast. Now going thru them again. Seriously thinking of joining the Academy.
So far I have posted "owner finance" ghost ads on craigslist. I cannot believe the amount of buyers I have gotten responses from in the 2 weeks my ads have been up. This has prompted me to look for that home that I can buy and resell. My biggest thing to get out of my head is "this is not going to be my house".
I CAN DO THIS.
I am going to look at 3 properties on the weekend. I have made countless calls to realtors and finally found one who would even show me the properties. I am amazed at some of the reasons (excuses) realtors gave me for not wanting to show me anything. "Not worth my time to show a house listed for only $50,000.00, just plain not returning calls or emails (this is the listing realtor) and my favorite.....I can't drive out in the country I might get a flat tire or something, again the listing realtor. Hoping the realtor I have now works out.
I am hoping to use Greg Murphy's strategies on my journey. I have no money, no credit, but I do have detremination and grit.
Little baby steps, I am a fast learner so I hope to off and running soon.
God Bless until next time
You only fail if you do not try.
Dare to dream.......and dream BIG
