The deals are out there, you just have to find and reconize them. Don’t worry about your competition too much, you will just get yourself upset. Set yourself your own goals and follow through on them. Also set yourself standards, just don’t follow the crowd. And remember “experts” usually end up wrong. Remember all them “experts” that recommended Enron in 2000? How great the company was and all? Where are those experts now? They are recommending Real Estate!
I guess I do O.K. I havent worked in a while I could see why someone would doubt what is going on I would to if I were starting out! All I know is 99% of the people out there are not teaching you everything you need to know that will put you way ahead of the of competition. Summer is here and the fishing is to good to work for now so as soon as the fish quit getting hooked to my fishing pole and leave me alone I might get back to work…
There are always Real Estate investments out there. You just have to keep looking.
I have been investing in New York (Started on Long Island, then the city, then upstate New York) since 1992. I have bought all kinds of rentals and fixer-up properties and have gone to and bought from some auctions.
I have recently (2003) found great success in Florida, such so that I moved to Florida 10 Months ago, leaving my properties in NY to be managed by my management company.
Here in Florida we are now setting up shop for investment in New Construction Flips. My partner just had a Real Estate Investment group (130 People) from Colorado come here and look over this investment. They are very excited and looking forward to getting into the New Construction Craze in Florida.
So I reiterate, don’t give up. Keep looking. Think outside of your investment box. There are all kinds of real estate deals out there.
