The #1 Killer of Success

Posted on May 25, 2012 by
These days, with so much negative information out there pummeling us every day, it’s critical that we counterbalance all the doom and gloom news with twice as much positive information and stories. For example, Kim and I spent this past week in Florida. One morning we went yard selling. This particular day, we came across a guy who was selling almost everything he owned. Turned out he was losing his home to foreclosure and had to be moved out in a couple of days. The guy was so negative we had to stand a few extra steps back to ensure we didn’t catch his negative funk. He blamed...
You’ve done great! You bought an investment property, did an outstanding rehab and listed it with your realtor. Then it happens: You get a written offer from a potential buyer. Now what? Let’s first look at what’s normally done, then look at another way that may work better. Your realtor emails you the offer that is usually lower – sometimes a lot lower – than your asking price. Also, the seller is regularly asked to pay a portion of the buyer’s closing costs. Lastly, you’re given two days to respond to the buyer’s offer. After thinking...
“Real Estate Investing, In My Opinion, Is One of the Greatest Business Opportunities Available to Everyone, Regardless of the Investors Credit Score and Cash Reserves.” When I started over 30 years ago I had neither good credit nor money to buy real estate.

I’m sure many of you today, like myself back then, are unable to get a loan even if you try, but why let...

How can you sell a house before you’ve ever purchased it? Well technically you can’t since you don’t own or control it yet, but the point is the property can be as “good as sold” before you ever buy it by having a ready, willing and able buyer already lined up and ready to go. Perhaps you’ve been hearing a lot of buzz lately about “reverse wholesaling” lately. It is really nothing new… it just means finding the buyer first and then finding the buyer a house rather than finding a house first, putting it under contract and then finding a buyer. Basically your buyer(s) tell you what the type of...
