Find a Motivated Seller with lots of equity. Offer him a way to get out of his property with a monthly income. Also read Dean's book again. I am and I keep finding answers to the questions I have.
I've been telling everyone I want to buy houses and asking them if they want to invest with me on deals. I talk about it all the time. One of my renters today told me she had a stash and she wanted to buy something as a partner! Also my cousin is trustee for a house and I have a buyers list from ads in Craigs list and the penneysaver so I'm trying to match them up and make a finder's fee. jrgnsn
