How a Newbie Gets Started...

So you've been to a bootcamp or two. And you decided that REI is the path for you.. the best thing sliced bread (and it is...). You even went to some networking seminars. What's your next step?

I'd like to hear how you personally pursued real estate investing, from the moment you decided to charge forward right up to the completion of your FIRST deal. Feel free to include the steps you took, the fears you conquered, the hurdles you faced, and the successes you won.

You need to be a member of Real Estate Mixer to add comments!

  • After reading a few books, I took the plunge and bought my first property last year.  Still have it. And now looking to wholesale in Monmouth County.  This discussion appears old, but would welcome partnering with someone while I learn the wholesale process. 

  • Thanks all, will contact you both :-)

  • Thanks Al

    Hi all!

     I know this thread is kind of old, but if any of you are still active on this forum... do any of these offers still stand?  I'm in the same position as Mike, have been studying real estate for about 2 years, have done a few things such as direct mailing, talking to sellers, trying to build buyers list, analyzing properties, etc.  But to finally get the hands on expereince of getting a few deals done would be great!  I'd be more than willing to split any profit (with the bulk % being in your favor of course), but I didn't want to just call any of the numbers provided without getting the ok.  I can be reached privately at nkdunlap@gmail.com if need be.

     

    Thanks!

    Nicole

  • I was going to ask the same thing Nicole. I just finished cleaning up my credit and now looking to get my feet wet. I was a mortgage banker for 10 years and dealt with developers for most of that time but never did a property all the way thorough. I live in central Jersey (somerset area)..
