Real Estate Investing w/ Alex Deacon: Get Rich At Home In Your Pajamas

DHREA 25/06/2018

 

It almost sounds too easy but that’s where the hard work starts. So much more to it then this but a key part of success in this business.

I have found that my most productive time is analyzing deals from my computer. I can go through thousands of properties without leaving the comfort of my couch on a monthly basis. You will spend 1/3 of your day sleeping, and 1/3 to 1/2 of your day at work. Sprinkle in family, food, fun, and so on, and you will find (as you probably already know) there are not enough hours in the day. You have to get really awesome at being able to analyze properties from home at your computer. You have to limit your time on the road to looking at only the best deals. Here are some really quick points to look for that will help you start to learn this science.

 

1. Pictures speak a thousand words. Never take a seller’s or agent’s word for anything. If they have pics, have them send you as many as possible. A seller will always exaggerate and tell you that the home needs a little TLC, and when you get there it needs a bulldozer.

2. Use Google earth and other technology. I can’t tell my wife this but I am in love with Google earth.

3. At first, stay close to home and or work. If you can get to a property easy, then you are saving time and you already know that area. Don’t stretch yourself at first.

4. Stick to a specific price range and or type of property. Be focused. You can’t be all things to all investments. Know your limitations and figure out what you want to hone in on and keep your head in that game and nothing else.

5. Stay away from a lot of steps. I rarely buy a property that has a lot of steps to get to the front door. Doesn’t mean I don’t ever buy properties like this, but just a good rule of thumb.

6. Stay away from a busy road. Again, I do buy properties on busy roads, but I get them at busy road prices.

7. Get to know the market. “Wow, Alex I never thought of that.” I know sounds easy, but it is extremely hard and you will never master it. You will need to spend thousands of hours looking at real estate, going to seminars, reading books, networking etc.. etc.. But nothing comes easy, and in order to get good at a desktop analysis you have to put in your time and get dirty.

 

I could go on for hours at all the nuances and strategies, but at some point it becomes redundant. You have to start somewhere and get dirty. You can’t be afraid to make mistakes. But at first, every mistake will seem like the end of the world, so start slow and limit your risk. As you grow, you can start to expand and take more risks. The greater the risk the greater the return, but once you start to do a lot of volume and get really good at this game your risk factor will decrease rapidly and your confidence will grow. Just be careful not to get a big head and go too fast…and never get too greedy. Speed kills, greed kills, and pigs get slaughtered.

Alex Deacon’s June Real Estate Network Workshop Review!

DHREA 11/06/2018

Thanks to all that attended on Saturday! We had over 30 members along with our two guest speakers. We actually ran over 2 1/2 hours due to the fact there was so much to cover. If they will accept my invite, we will have them both back this year or early next year!

I learned a lot about insurance and about the contracting part of my business that I thought I already had a grasp on. Just goes to show you that we are always learning and have room for improvement.

Our next workshop is planned for the second Saturday in August (8.11.18). Stay tuned for the details. We will be meeting in August, September, October and November and then starting up again January of 2019!

I get asked at every workshop to do another bus tour. The hurdle of that is finding the time. Plus we can only handle about 20 people per tour to do it right and I end up turning down a dozen or more. I thought that this month we will tour a bunch of my projects and use technology and do it in a nice climate controlled facility. We will tour each r…

#Announcement: Alex Deacon’s June Real Estate Investment Workshop! Details Below!

DHREA 30/05/2018

 

I get asked at every workshop to do another bus tour. The hurdle of that is finding the time. Plus we can only handle about 20 people per tour to do it right and I end up turning down a dozen or more. I thought that this month we will tour a bunch of my projects and use technology and do it in a nice climate controlled facility.

We will tour each room of each project and go over the costs of every aspect of the project. There will be a lot of Q and A time and this will be super helpful for you that are rehabbing an apartment to rehabbing an entire house from the studs.

We will have two guest speakers. First, Casey J Burkhead of Burkhead Insurance Services. He will educate us on the proper insurances to have for flips, rentals, rehabs and vacant properties. It’s important to know the difference and make sure you have the correct insurance in place.

Our second guest speaker will be Steve Daniele, who is the owner of Shannon Staley and Sons. He has helped countless investors do apartment turnovers to 200k rehab projects. He will explain his services and how he manages over 100 employees and still keeps his sanity.

Don’t miss this one if you are thinking about doing a small or large rehab and want to know how to budget, what to repair and what products to use. Each project requires different levels and you need to know the difference in order to reach maximum profitability.
