“Thought out program . . .” I meant curriculum, as it would pertain to say “coursework.”
Not that they don’t have a plan … method … to effect positive outcome.
It is ironic that I just talked with a person from another RE website who is part and parcel to the site and has nothing to gain by helping me one way or the other. Anyhow … this person suggested I learn to flip/wholesale on my own. Then move on to, and in to other means to secure deals and so forth, they also recommended coursework to look at.
To protect this person’s anonymity [calls from people like me] … I am deliberately leaving who it was out of this email. Having said that, responses I’ve gotten from my posts have been helpful. I believe I now have a direction relative to “where I go from here.” Now I must find good coursework for flipping/wholesaling properties to begin the effort.
Seems my mentor idea might have been a little to “early.” I’ve learned enough at the local RE Club meetings as well as perusing sites and so forth. To know, for example, foreclosures are a bit much for me at this point. Somewhat specialized and can be risky to the buyer.
Whereas lease options might be a little easier for the novice to get under her/his belt.
However, of all the means to an end, seems flipping/wholesaling could be a place to start. Since risk is low and out of pocket is negligible. I came to this conclusion as well before the chat.
My mentor idea was to accelerate the process. However, seems I must idle back a bit. And perhaps make use of a mentor once I’ve got some things in motion, in tow as it were.
Any and all ways of doing any of the facets of RE, be they L/O, foreclosures, wholesaling, buy & hold … whatever. All require finding sellers and buyers. Both sets have problems … both need solutions.
Seems wholesaling may be as good as any to begin the process and be a conduit . . .
Lastly, is amazing at several websites proclaiming their being “all things to all people” from learning the RE game, to lender contacts, you name it. Had grammar errors … one big time site had several simple grammar and spelling errors.
Wouldn’t you at least do a spell check on your website when trying to sell a $1,995 to $9,995 mentor program? Or any product or service for that matter? Just floors me how many websites have such errors. Moreover, many of these websites are not just any Joe Schmo wannabe either. Some are of great repute.
