A’s to Your Biggest Q’s on Wholesaling Houses for Quick Cash

Hey, so if you have a finger (or two) in the proverbial pie of wholesaling houses for quick cash, then you’ll really enjoy and appreciate this.

Here’s the deal in a nutshell:

Just by being ‘out there’ in the arena, we tend to get a wide and steady stream of awesome questions coming our way all the time. And as you might imagine, these questions can run the gamut of just about every facet of real estate investing you can think of.

But it’s probably no big surprise to hear that, hands down, we get more questions about wholesaling houses than anything else – by a wide margin actually.

And sure, we do our best to help out by answering as many questions at we can. But at the end of the day there’s only so many hours and only so much we can do fielding questions one-to-one.

Which is precisely why we were struck recently with the idea of hosting a live, ‘anything-goes’ webcast for some frank back-and-forth on the topic, and invited as many people as possible along for the ride.   Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…

Top Real Estate Investing Mistakes: The ‘Tactical Trap’

 

A surprising, little-known fact: 

 A great deal of people who set out to build a lucrative, thriving real estate investing business… never actually end up accomplishing it.

You:

Confused Real Estate Investor

Me: You heard me.

Not trying to be Debbie Downer here, but in spite of the opportunity aplenty the real estate game has to offer, there’s a rather large number of folks who make an earnest go of it, only to end up failing pretty hard at the end of the day.

So but… Why?!

I mean, if REI offers this rich path for financial freedom and personal awesomeness (and yes, it sure the heck does), then why the flip would so many of us struggle so hard and fizzle so frequently?

The Essential Life Cycle of a Real Estate Investor

“Long ago, I realized that success leaves clues, and that people who produce outstanding results do specific things to create those results. I believed that if I precisely duplicated the actions of others, I could reproduce the same quality of results that they had.” –Tony Robbins

Re-read that if you need to. It’s pretty profound really.

And after 16+ years in the real estate game and personally knowing hundreds of investors now, I can attest that it’s just as true for real estate investors as anyone else….

Success leaves clues.

What’s more–and most people don’t realize this–but there’s actually a surprisingly specific path that pretty much everyone who makes it big in this game ends up walking–kind of an ‘essential life cycle’ for successful real estate investors.  Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…

The ONE Thing Your Success (Or Failure) Hinges On In Real Estate…

S

o let me ask you: Why are you even doing this?

I mean, why are you even in real estate investing in the first place? What first sparked your interest and made you decide to choose this path versus some other one? What is it that motivates you to keep going?

Or even better question: When things get super discouraging, or frustrating, or weird, or bone-crunchingly hard, what is it that gets you back on track and keeps you focused and pressing on? What keeps you getting out of bed early with excitement and passionately awake inspired at night?

Maybe you’ve already faced something that’s sent you reeling or sucker punched you and sent you flying off the tracks entirely, like…

  Overwhelm or info overload
  Bright shiny objects yanking you all over the place
  Fear of making big, expensive, painful mistakes
  ‘Negative Nancies’ or other challenging people in your life
  Confusion about the right direction or next steps to take
  Money wasted with no results, or even deals gone bad
  Disillusionment, distraction, despair or other head junk

The fact of the matter is, this stuff is pretty typical in the life span of most investors… but it’s also a merciless dream killer… or an outright death dealer for far too many of us.

But here’s the really great news: When crap happens like this, there’s one potent thing that’ll let you tap reserves of energy, focus, determination and courage you didn’t even know you had, when you need them the most.
