Real Estate Investment Groups: "Get 'er done"
How to be a successful Real Estate Agent
My name is Rob Scribner. I am not a real estate agent, nor am I
a mortgage broker. I am the owner of Northwest Custom Webs (
<http://www.nwcustomwebs.com> ) . I have built and
maintained over 180 web sites for real estate and...
Have your heard there is a new real estate investment guru in
the marketplace? At night, he has a part time job as a national
stand up comedian and without the audience even knowing, he
gives them fantastic real estate investment advice. His name is
Larry The Cable Guy, and these days he performs to packed
audiences purely because of his real estate advice, I am sure.
So what is his secret advice to getting good real estate
investments? GET 'ER DONE!
In all seriousness, I don't think the Cable Guy is actually
giving real estate investment advice but he should. If you will
remember his famous "Get 'er done" phrase, it will serve you
well in the real estate investment. Early in my real estate
investment career, I bought single family houses and then turned
around and resold with owner-financing in place. As I was
beginning this activity, the HARDEST part was finding good
investments on a consistent basis. Why? Because I had no track
record and thus nobody would help.
When I approached realtors for help, they would be friendly but
rarely brought any good projects. I didn't understand why
because I KNEW I was very serious about buying. However, most
realtors really doubted that I would buy the houses if they
brought them to me. Having been in the real estate investment
business for a while now, I certainly don't blame them. What
realtors rapidly learn is that 90% of investors will back out
when it actually comes time to close. So they do all this work
and don't get paid.
But like many things, after you struggle through your first
couple of real estate investment deals, then you start to gather
a reputation of actually getting
7 Simple Tips For Flipping Real Estate
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years,
you've probably either dabbled in real estate yourself, or at
the very least, know someone who has. So, how does someone
that's brand new to real estate start flipping homes? (And...
deals done. Before long, there
was a couple of realtors who figured out I could "Get 'er done"
and started to bring me more opportunities than I could handle.
This was a HUGE turning point because now people call me, tell
me about a real estate investment deal, and ask if interested.
All of this required ZERO work from me! Today, I still
occasionally pick up houses and primarily use one realtor who
knows that if I give her the go ahead to look, then she will get
an immediate pay day if she brings something that meets my
As I got more and more into preconstruction real estate
investments, I got another rude awakening. Even though I was
serious about finding investments and had decent connections, as
a single individual, I was pretty much irrelevant to developers
and major brokers with large preconstruction projects. Why? I
was buying 1 unit and they might have 400 to sell. While they
were happy to get my purchase, they would not go out of their
way to find me other good projects and deals.... It was like I
had to beg to get in.
Over time, there was a small group of us that formed that had
more power but still, had almost no ability to interact with
developers and get better real estate investments. As time moved
forward, GetPreconstructionDeals.com was formed with the idea
that by surrounding ourselves with a group of investors, we
could now enjoy some of the perks of being able to "Get 'er
done" on a larger scale. Today, with that ability, we get to
look at a lot of projects and opportunities that most outside
investors never even know about.
This month, we will run a series of articles on take full
Real Estate Deals - Common Misconceptions
Are high-profit real estate deals only for the wealthy? Is it possible to buy with no money down? Do you really have to know the "right" people? Let's answer by looking at some of the myths of real estate.
1. The good real estate deals are...
investing "with the power of thousands". With a
strong group of "Get 'er done" investors, it really becomes
amazing at the real estate investment opportunities that arise;
and this is true if the real estate market is booming, flat, or
We will also use this article series to introduce a major new
feature to GetPreconstructionDeals.com: an real estate
investment open forum and "town hall meetings" to help investors
group into smaller, more common interest areas. At our web site,
we obviously introduce a wide range of projects from
preconstruction condos, town homes, mountain and coastal
property, condo conversions, international and domestic, etc.
We will be taking steps to help gather "Get 'er done" investors
into smaller, real estate investment interest groups with a
tight focus on the types of projects they desire. The real
advantage for you is that if you are looking for a specific
investment type (or even location) and there are others that
share your interest, we can then really help these groups find
the types of projects meeting their needs. We believe this will
be a tremendous benefit to not only investors but developers as
So we hope you will join us this month as we really outline the
steps for you to achieve your real estate investing goals,
regardless of market conditions.
