wholesaling real estate: 10 R's of Life: Roles, Are You "Playing Your Part"? - 05/13/08 08:19 AM
The second of the 10 R's of life is roles. Not all people are familiar with their roles that they play in life. In fact many people don't even know that they fall into certain roles with certain people or certain situations.Roles are the essentially the way your character plays out in a particular area of of your life or with a particular group of people. For instance you may be a very powerful person at work because that is your role but when you get together with your family you become a bumbling idiot. Most people are completely unconscious of … (2 comments)

wholesaling real estate: Bringing Your Mind and Body To the Same Place....The Moment - 04/17/08 12:30 AM
When you are not living your life in the present moment you are living in either fear or regret. Fear of what might come in the future, regret about what happened in the past or a bit of both. Something that you might find very interesting, yet frustrating as well, is the way we use our present moments. In many cases you use your present moments fearing something in the future, but when you arrive in that future you were fearing, you live in regret of not being present in the past moment that you spent fearing the moment that you … (2 comments)

wholesaling real estate: Real Estate Investing Courses: Are Real Estate Investing Courses A Big Rip Off? - 03/14/08 11:54 PM
As the author of several real estate investing courses, it never ceases to amaze me that so many people find my real estate systems extremely helpful in their quest for real estate investing success, while about 1 out of about 80 are throughly convinced that I was trying to rip them off. As if I was just sitting at home waiting for some sucker to come along so that I could get $85.00.At $85.00 my courses are about a 10th of the price of most real estate courses. I have bought the expensive courses as well, and frankly all of us … (0 comments)

wholesaling real estate: Real Estate Investing: Wholesaling Real Estate Profit Factors - 03/07/08 11:07 AM
I am often asked by other real estate investors how much profit can be made in a wholesaling real estate transaction. There are many aspects to determining how much profit can be made on each deal. In one way or another your profit will be determined by one of the 3 items listed below.
The price of the home- Typically higher priced homes will have more room for profit then lower priced homes. Example: if you can find a home for 50% FMV (Fair market value) and sell the home for 70% FMV then you would have a 20% spread. 20% of … (0 comments)

wholesaling real estate: Wholesaling Properties: Don't Miss These Critical Steps To Wholesaling Success (Part 1) - 12/01/07 01:58 AM
There are numerous reasons why investors never realize any success in real estate wholesaling. In this article I am going to focus on one step of the wholesaling process that so many investors get wrong. The sad part is that many of the guru wholesaling courses actually teach newbie investors the wrong way.
From my experience the most critical factor in the entire real estate wholesaling equation is having a solid buyers list in place. Many newbie investors make the mistake of focusing their energies on locating great deals on houses prior to having any investors to buy those houses. The best … (1 comments)

wholesaling real estate: Termite Inspections For Our Minds - 11/18/07 10:42 AM
As Realtors many of us are all too familiar with termites. I have lost a couple of sales because a home was infested with termites. Why are termites so dangerous? After all they are just a small bug, what harm could one little bug do? As I am sure you know, it's not one termite that destroys a house, it's a colony, but a colony is started with just a couple of bugs. If a couple of termites are allowed to penetrate the foundation of a home, a colony will soon arise.
Bad thoughts are a lot like termites. One bad thought … (2 comments)

wholesaling real estate: Wholesaling Real Estate: I love this Real Estate Investing Market - 09/09/07 06:13 AM
It is unbelievable to me that when our market was going decent, I could not find enough rental properties to come close to keeping up with buyer demand.  These buyers were buying for long term holding, and 2nd cash flow.  Now their are no buyers and spectacular deals.  My question is Why buy when the markets High?  I ask alot of my old customers why they are not buying?  There usually reply is "We are waiting till the market straightens out" 
That makes alot of sense when you look at it.  Wait until prices go way up, along with interest rates, then … (0 comments)

This just happened to me today.  I promise its a good story.
I offer a real estate course online at www.TheForeclosureCollege.com and investors from accross U.S pay me to use my website and 1-877-YOU-UGLY phone number.  One person per county gets to use the system.  So last night I had a girl who had bought the system e-mail me and say that she needed all of the zip codes, but she is from my town, so it would be a conflict of interest. I never really pay attention to where anyone is from.  Anyway I emailed her and told her to call me … (8 comments)

wholesaling real estate: What would your realtor report card say? - 07/05/07 02:42 AM
I think we can all remember the dreaded feeling of report card days from our childhood. The level of stress you felt typically depended on how well you thought you had done in your classes. Looking back on those moments I realize that the report card was a great way to report our progress toward the specific goal of gaining education. Our grades were many times never a reflection of our interest in a subject, but instead a reflection of the fear that our parents put into us if we did bad. After the last year of our formal education we … (6 comments)

wholesaling real estate: Real Estate Wholesaling: 6 Easy Steps to Wholesaling Real Estate - 06/23/07 07:45 AM
Far to many people make wholesaling real estate much more complicated than it needs to be. Real estate wholesaling can be laid out in 6 very easy steps:
1. Find Buyers-Locating buyers needs to be the first step to get going in the wholesaling process. Without buyers even the best wholesale deals will not make a penny. Too many investors make the mistake of looking for homes before they look for buyers, do not make this mistake.
2. Find Motivated Sellers-The more motivated that the seller is, the more money you will be able to make. Try to find sellers willing to sell at … (9 comments)

Real estate wholesaling is one of the most powerful wealth builders that does not require cash or credit. Far too many people complicate the wholesaling real estate process with their "what if" worries. What if I cannot find a buyer? What if the market changes? These are just a couple of the "what ifs" that first time and even seasoned real estate wholesalers spend far too much time on.Detachment is the process of pulling your emotions away from the outcome of any scenario. The process of detachment will help you pull your emotions out of the real estate transaction. Detachment leaves … (2 comments)
