I've been trying to help redstar for over a year, the endless questions, seeing all the dif directions he goes. it's an exercise is futility. Now he's talking suicide rather than putting out the effort needed to become successful. How long shud we put up with these endless rants and questions and not listening to our advice & mood swings?
Let's get him back on his meds and then stop giving advice that he will never follow.
I'll be in my cave tanning bear hide and putting up xmas light.

This is the last time I will answer this question. I DO CHECK ZILLOW, BUT ITS OFTEN SO INACCURATE.  I'm familiar with the neighborhoods that I like to wholesale in. I know that a 2/1 in good condition is worth 80K. I know a 3/2 is worth 120K
If the 2/1 is toast and needs a total rehab I will start at 50% and try to get it at 30K I will try to get the 3/2 for 45K
If the property sits in a ganged out war zone and the foundation is bad, I offer a lot less. If its rented and still in bad shape I will offer more. If the seller is stuck on a higher price I will still write it up cuz many times Ive been shocked they sold and I still made a great profit. If a realtor is involved I walk away quickly,
If somebody died in the house,I offer less, if its next to RR tracks or the freeway I offer less. If its less that 900 SF I offer less.
If the seller is a good looking Asian porn star and I think I can get some gugma I will pay a little more. Each situation is different.
Its not a science, its a big guessing game. Now get out there and make a mess of things.

It's hard to make a mess of anything when I get no calls other than those wanting full FMV.

Maybe I'll get some some day, but for now, I'm out of marketing money.

The first year I started I didnt have a car, I didnt have marketing money, I got busy placing 50 ads on Craig's List in my city and other towns and cities and states. I started recruiting bird dogs. My first year I did a half dozen deals, a couple out of state, a couple from my bird dogs and a few from my local ads.
I was only doing it half ass, I shud of been out door to door, handing out brochures on car windows and handing out  my business cards and calling landlords and for sale by owners.
The first year I made enuf money to get a 98 Toyota and take a 4 month vacation to a tropical island with my family.
I was a total screw up,  so maybe there is hope for you.
Now shud I hit you in the gonads with some tough talk or hold your hand and sweet talk you?
I don't know what to do for you.
I feel like there must be something I can do, but then I realize, you alone are responsible for your own success or failure.
Good luck human.

Red, what are you going to do next?

How much time and money have you spent so far on wholesaling?

Using drugs and alcohol is a sure fire way of messing up (not just wholesaling but) just about everything. In books by Andrew Carnegie and Napolean Hill they both list drugs and booze as the first things to avoid in life.

If we want to become successful its best we keep our noses clean, Red. The other two things those two guys list as things to avoid are excessive sex or having negative and destructive sex partners. But then I think they list negative thinking as the worst culprit of them all.
