As you know (if you have read previos blogs) and if you do not know Im new to this completely. I am trying not to get discouraged but unfortunately, it doesnt seem to be working out that way.
My attempt to find buyers seem to be complicated. Especially cash buyers. Ive been looking strolling craigslist in my local area and found several homes by owner well below fmv (or handy man specials) which was ok. Several of which are posted by the same person over and over again that seems to have been posted for long periods of time bc daily I look at these properties and they are still there as fsbo with slogans like "Investors delight" or some other slogans. Not to mention at Walmart today, I noticed the same guys number on bandit signs there and all over the city and so on. So Im thinking that he is a guy that has several properties that he just wants out of his hands.. Alright, great I thought.
So I started Google searching for REI in my area that maybe I could do biz with to assist the person above to get these properties sold. There are not many real estate investment groups apparently in my area. The one that did show up, I thought "Well at least theres one."
Unfortunately, when I began looking at the people who are apart of this group, I realized, this guy is one of them. I went then directly to his website and hurtfully his website stated "If you are a new investor, broke, have read a Carlton Sheets at home course, or dont know what you are doing, please go away." I was offended but even moreso, it was nearly true. What am I suppose to do? I havent given up hope but with so few cash buyers (investors) or even retail buyers calling into my tf#, I dont know what to do next. I dont want to sound like a complainer or as if Im giving up. But as I explained bf, there is alot of competition in my city and I have at least tried everything that I read from placing bandit signs/flyers (only to see a week later that they have been taken down) or no one has called in anyways. I just dont know what to do.. Can someone offer some assistance on what I should try next?
