I received Dean's book 'Profit From Real Estate Right Now', 2 days ago and finished reading this afternoon. I will continue to re-read and study as needed for as long as is needed.
Not to say that I don't intend on taking action, thats certainly not the case. I'm anxious to begin implementing the strategies I've just learned.
I am absolutely in the no money, bad credit boat. Regrettably, because I would love to join Dean's coaching program. However, until I am able to close my 1st deal, I don't even have funds for marketing.
I don't currently have a full-time job, and living off my 1 weekend a month w/ the New Hampshire Army National Guard isn't anywhere near enough. Not to mention I have my 1st child on the way!
I have joined a REI group in my area to begin networking and will be attending my 1st meeting 2 weeks from now. That being said, I was hoping for some advice.
Considering I don't have so much as a penny at my dispense right now, what are/is the most successful form(s) of free advertisement? What type(s) of deal should I shop for 1st?
I'm going to get on Craigslist and also find free classified ads to start. I figured I could try looking for investors and a mortgage broker thru Craigslist.
Hopefully soon I will be able to set up a 24-hour recorded message, get business cards and flyers made, and order some bandit signs.I'm also going to look into setting up my free website when I get up tomorrow.
I intend on contacting FSBO's, calling For Rent ads, and visiting my county courthouse to find Pre-Foreclosures and Foreclosures. I also intend on signing up w/ ForeclosureAlert as soon as I can afford.
As I don't currently have any investors lined up, am I wrong to assume I will be able to implement the 'IEE' system more successfully then focusing on 'Assignments' at this point in time?
Due to not yet having a RE Agent partner, I can't yet implement Matt Larson's "25-1" system. As soon as I do have an agent, then I will. But I haven't yet begun 'shopping' around. I'm hoping I can get connected w/ an agent thru the REI group I joined.
Well its 3:30am so I'm gonna end this to get some sleep. I think that covers most of what I'm wondering. Any words of wisdom will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance to anyone willing to help me out and THANK YOU DEAN!!
