I am happy to have found these forums as I like this tye of REAL forums rather than the kind I have seen with long webpages of junk. I also EXTREMELY like the attitudes of the more experienced investors here. They genuinely want to offer information and insight to newer investors. KUDOS!
My story is that I am a noob myself. I have yet to make a single deal, I have no prior experience in real estate other than what I have read for FREE on the internet, late night TV infomercials or some get rich quick seminar selling $1,000 books which I never bought.
I do seem to have a knack at explaining things to those that aren’t as knowledgeable as myself in certain things and I hope that I can use this forum to not only increase my own knowledge of REI, but help others as well. I hope to put up a website at some point with an easy way for noobs to find links to sites with tons of good, valid, NON get-rich-quick information.
In the meantime I am looking for deals and just put out my first offer on a house in my life! I plan to rehab single family homes (SFH) and then sell for fair market value (FMV) or maybe rent to section 8 depending on the location of the property and the numbers.
I am no means a know it all tho my posts sometimes may READ like I have an attitude, but I just ask alot of questions and play devil’s advocate alot to see if the other person has atleast considered all the angles. I mean most new peeps like me can’t afford to make a mistake so I try to consider the worst case scenario and make sure I have an out or I can swallow the mistake without hurting myself. LOL
Good luck to all and I hope to contribute and receive more great information like what I have read in the last few days!
