This is my very first journal entry and I must say that I am very excited to begin this new REI Journey. My husband and I have recently began reading "Be a Real Estate Millionaire" and "Profit from Real Estate Right Now". I am about half way through my book and my husband is right behind me in his, then we will switch when we are both finished.
So far, we are learning a lot and getting more and more excited everyday. I don't think we have ever been so dedicated to anything ever before. We are determined to change our future. At this time, I have been dedicating about 9-10 hours a day reading and researching everything I can about REI and Dean's strategies. However, I think yesterday I began to question if I should be scared or see it as opportunity when I realized the extreme need for REI in my town. Now it is becoming a mission of "save my town". At first, I was getting excited when I saw there were so rehab homes and so many great deals. Then it just became plain sad how many I am finding, knowing that all these homes are empty and run down because people couldn't save them. Many are from hurricane damage... but SO many are from the economic downturn. It is breaking my heart. But, with Dean's strategies maybe I can be the one to scoop all these up and turn around my town and change someone else future. It is a win/win.
The big problem I am facing in making this a reality is that there are hundreds of income potential properties.... but they ALL require a CASH only payment which I have none of. Hmmmm... need to keep reading I guess.
Thank you to all of you for providing such a positive environment. I am hoping to get acquainted with all of you who share the same love as I do.
