I started out learning to manage our family's portfolio in Northern and Southern California.  I took seminars on options from a guy in Florida, Nothing Down strategies from Robert Allen, and creative financing offers from Barney Zick.  I also read a TON of books on creative finance.

Housing market was booming and I wanted in.  I started out by seeking out a coach (not a shameless plug, but honest recant).  I hired a guy who was flipping tons of houses each month in my city.  Absolutely could NOT have done it without him.  7 years later, I'm making 5 times what I was making in my day job, and working less than half the hours. 

My advice, do the same as me.  Seek out a mentor.  Pay the person (it's an investment, not a cost).  Learn the right strategies and cut your learning curve 90%.  Be dedicated and determined and put in the hours necessary to make it happen.  Enjoy the fruits of your labor.

A mentor is the only way to go if you are just starting in the business. I went to seminars where they were selling snake oil and not one single snake oil seller would take you buy the hand and show how to buy with no money down.

I can believe that.  But there's a difference between "no money down" and "having no money."

When you say "hired," what were you paying him, or doing, in return for the help and guidance?  Is there one strategy that, along with the hours and determination you applied, you would recommend?

Great posts.

I scratched a check and split my profits 50/50.  Today's coaching programs are a bit more structured and often involves different levels.  In those days, though, it was kind of crude.  And my mentor wasn't even a mentor... till I came along.

It is still crude out there. We see so many new comers that will read one book and think they are ready to make a ton of money and if you ask them how much money are you bringing to the table to get started they look at you and say the book i read say I don't need any money.

Although I don't do 3 flips/month .... I started out by reading a few books and then jumping in with both feet. My first deal I searched for 4 months until finding a townhouse that had been condemned due to a fire in the townhouse next door. I contacted the owner via tax records and leaving letters on the door.  I bought at 55% of ARV and spent $15K in materials and 5 months of my own labor rehabbing the property into very nice shape.  I have kept this property as my first long term rental. After rehab I had about $70k in equity in the property and get about a 9% COC return as a rental. I've had it for over six years now and have no plans to sell. I've picked up 2 other properties for long term rental and flipped a third  property since then.

Great tip maestro! I wish I would’ve spent the money on a mentor early on. Instead I tried learning everything on my own. It worked out in the end but would have been a lot easier and I would’ve been flipping a lot quicker if I would’ve seeked out a mentor first. But now I’m the mentor.

Use automated systems that do the grunt work for you.  It wasn't until I found software that let me find buyers & sellers quickly did my wholesaling & flipping strategies really start to make me money.  I realized early that every aspect of my real estate business that I could automate or outsource ran more efficient and more effectively without me.

I make it easy on myself and let a Realtor do all my work. A Realtor will find us deals before they hit the MLS and at a very good discount. Next week we are getting 100 SFR that was Indy mac properties, and 50 SFR from Bank of American..
