I was surprised to find out just how many houses are on the market. Especially right here in my own subdivision. As I was driving around this morning looking at properties I ran in to a real estate agent who was having an open house.
I took Matt Larson's advice and I told him I was new to REI and in the next three years wanted to retire myself from my job. I told him I was aggressively pursuing this and was in need of a motivated RE agent to work with. He excitedly gave me his info and asked "What is your name again?" He gave me a market analysis of the properties in our subdivision and asked me to call him anytime for more info.
The particular house he was showing has been on the market for nearly ninety days and the owners have already dropped their asking price by $20,000.
I just finished reading chapter 8 of Profit from Real Estate Right Now about assignments so I haven't got to the part yet about finding motivated buyers. I am eager to read the rest of the book so I can start putting my plan into action.
Just wanted to share my excitement.
