Diane's Journal

Hi all,
I just finished reading Your Town and listened to the Webinar last night. I am enjoying the excitement I'm feeling of anticipating my life changing for the better. I pray for the patience it will take me to learn this system and for the intelligence to understand it in order to put it to use for my and my family's benefit. Just the thought of learning something new is exciting for me. I have been a nurse for 28 yrs. love every minute of it but am in such need of something new and exciting. If anyone out there feels they need to mentor a newbee, I'd appreciate the help. I'll keep you posted. Best of luck to all.
Diane

Hi Diane,

Welcome to the DG site.
I had nearly the same amount of time in the IT business as you do in the nursing field before I began my new venture in Real Estate about 5 months ago. Prior to that I was just poking around here and there without any real commitment to change. Then when my job was eliminated at the end of February, I finally got serious about Real Estate. It's funny because I was probably in a better position to get started when I had the job. There are a few more obstacles financially now that I do not have the 9 to 5 but what I do have is more time. On Tuesday I will be closing on my 2nd deal!
The first thing I wish I had done while I still had the job is to have taken out the biggest Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) possible (assuming you have equity in your primary residence). The reason to do that is because the terms of a HELOC are very favorable and you don't have to use ANY of it if you don't want to, and the interest is deductible on your taxes. The biggest reason of course is that you can use that money for investing in another property. But, if you try to open a HELOC without having a strong source of income like a steady job.... the banks aren't going to even consider it in most cases.
