Hello! I'm new to the group. Purchased Deans "Be A Real Estate Millionaire" and have already read it from front to back. I think the last time I read a book from front to back I think was like 5 years ago. With that said I'm pretty excited about getting involved in the real estate arena. It's a little difficult where to start but I've done everything from finding foreclosures, posting ads on craigslist to get investors on my buyers list (none yet), and an ad to get motivated sellers and buyers. We'll here is my situation....I have a couple with bad credit who are interested in purchasing a home in a specific school district with the lease option, they are looking for a 3-4 Bed/2 bath, willing to pay $1000-$1250 per month and make an initial $2000-2500 down payment. Like other newbies, Im confused on where to start from here? I can't find foreclosures to fix and flip because every real estate agent are getting them before anyone gets a chance because they have a close relationship with the company that deals with BPO's (not sure what that is). I can't seem to find an agent that is willing to work with me. So im basically really getting my butt kicked out there. I refuse to give up but how can I help the couple that are looking and how do I compete with the real estate agents out there in my home area?
Sorry for the looooong post. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
