So I’ve been doing pretty well with writing down a few goals to do a day and actually getting them done. Seriously, I recommend you try that instead of a long laundry list of things to do. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to accomplish the most important, effective items.
Anyway, now it’s time for me to put out bandit signs. I’ve been putting out 10 a nite, but I think I’m gonna go put out 20. I ran out of signs that have the vertical fluting in ’em so I’m just putting ones out to hang on poles, etc.
Btw, this is not my favorite thing to do but I have to tell you, it’s one of the ways that I’ve made the most money in real estate. Ya know I think they 20% of the things you do will make you 80% of your money or something like that lol anyway I figured out that the only things that have made me money in real estate have been bandit signs, vinyl lettering on the back of my car and deals from the mls so that’s where I’m focusing most of my time and energy.
I did check out the sold properties in the past month or so that were sold for cash. Got 13…sooo I’ll check them out probably tomorrow or the weekend. Who says people ain’t buying properties? Pffft!
Had a friend from high school tell me that she’d let me use her bank statements to submit offers….waiting for updated copies from her (still haven’t heard back from my uncle….I’ll have to call him again.)
But also, I have 2 guys that I’m going to set up meetings with that I think could be VERY good possibilities to be private lenders. 1 is the father of another girl that I went to high school with and 1 is a guy that Kathy sold a Rainbow to (that’s what we sell as independent distributors on the side.) He’s a friend of her brothers and he already asked us about investing in real estate cuz he has money so I just gotta get my spiel together and come at him from the private lender aspect.
I wanted to say one more thing but I completely forget what it was…..damn it, I hate that. Ohhhh I did check out a house today cuz I got a call from one of my bandit signs the other day. It was a mobile home on a rented lot but I figured I’d check it out just to get in practice again of meeting with sellers, etc. The place is listed but I may tell the guy I’d be interested in a 30 day option??? Can’t hurt, I mean he’s leaving the end of this month no matter what.
Ohhhh I do remember what I wanted to say….I’m switching real estate offices. I gotta figure out how to do shit in the right order but I’m moving from Keller Williams to a very small, local company near my house. Reason being…well the fees are wayyyy less, I mean BIG TIME…and he’s got a lot of investor connections, reo connections and private money connections….plus he told me that he’d give me all of the addresses of the bpo’s that his wife does every month (about 20 to 30 per week) so that I can see if I can do a deal with folks while they are still in pre-foreclosure.
Soooo I’m working on all of this at the same time with trying to pump my business back up. I figured he was the right step for me in going in the investing direction and for me right now, if I wanted to go in the real estate agent direction then Keller Williams would have remained the best step. Btw, not that there is anything wrong with KW….I think they are a wonderful company and they are very investor friendly and I can’t complain one bit about their profit sharing lol (I get a check every month no matter what and I will continue to since I’ve been with the company more than 3 years….6 to be exact.)
Anyway…..exciting things happening.
