I am very new at this. I have been reading and studying many things for a few months. I drive by properties everyday that I’m sure I could do something with. Financially, I am in a position where real estate investing is the best (and maybe the ONLY way) I can get what I need as soon as possible. But I feel as though I’m missing something. :banghead
I am still sort of lost on how the seller benefits. In other words, why would a seller want to wait a year to get their money? I understand that they would be out from under a mortgage. I guess what I want to know is what to say to a seller to interest them in selling if they aren’t going to see anything substantial for a period of time?
How do I make any offer I make attractive to a seller? These questions have been running around in my head since I started looking into this and refuse to go away.
Maybe I am over thinking. Maybe it’s fear that is making me over think all of this. If someone can answer these questions for me, I could be off and running in a week. Once I make that first sale and see a check in my hand, I know that I will be successful in no time.
In a nutshell, I don’t know what to say to people when I speak to them. I don’t want to sound as if I have no idea what I am talking about when I try to do my first deal.
I hate to sound stupid or retarded (for lack of any other phrase). But like I said, I feel like I’m missing something.
