I am new to the site but very excited to be here with all of you. I decided to start this journal to document this new chapter of my life as a real estate investor.
I have been toying with the idea of getting into real estate investment for about 2 years now. Ive met so many people who have created the life of their dreams through real estate, but honestly I just didn't know where to begin & was far too timid to ask how they got started.
A few weeks ago I thought to myself enough was enough and decided to take some action. I went to the local book store & grabbed the one & only copy of Dean's "Profit From Real Estate Now" book they had in stock. I have to say am not a big fan of reading & usually just listen to audio books... but anyways I read the book cover to cover more quickly than I have ever read a book before & I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it & learned so much... I also just started "Be A Real Estate Millionaire" Last night & cant wait to see what great things this book has in store for me.
Im currently in the very first stages of learning the business of real estate investment. Every day Im doing everything i can to soak up as much knowledge & information as possible, But i figure the best way to really learn is to do. So Im setting an aggressive goal of doing my first deal within the next 30 days & then at least 3 more within the following 60 days.
I have started taking action by browsing both print & online classified ads, Driving around my area looking for FSBO's, and implementing some of the other strategies that Dean covered in his book.
Already Ive found a few potential deals with very motivated sellers that look absolutely fantastic, and have set up meetings with some local investors for later on this week to see if they can offer some guidance & support on how exactly to move forward... It might just be my insecurity talking, but I feel like i need someone almost to hold my hand through these first couple of deals, so i can see how things are most efficiently done. lets just hope these couple of investors are knowledgeable enough & willing to do that for me ... We will see.
Throughout the next 90 days I will do my best to update this journal with new & exciting things that i have going on in my journey... So feel free to pull up a chair & say hello Id love to hear from you. Im sure along the way many things will come up that i will have questions on & I would greatly appreciate everyone's input & advice
Talk to you again soon
