Is farming 2 hours from home rediculous?
« on: November 05, 2007, 05:47:57 pm »
I live in a very small town in Montana (4K) but there are 4 cities each within 2 hours drive. Am I being over ambitious to drive so far? Keep in mind, my alternatives are internet and my town which I have cased and it has no rehab deals to offer at this time.

Also, 1 of the cities is in Idaho.

If the 4 cities are near each other than that would work.  Otherwise it may not be a good idea to farm 4 different cities if they are all 2 hours apart from each other.  Pick the areas where there are other investors.  It would also probably be a good idea to network with those other investors in the areas where you are considering working.

If you manage your time wisely, it can certainly be done.

Thanks for the advice. Why should I pick a city where there are other investors?

Investors are investing in certain locations because that's where the deals are...
