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.

The Benefits of Elderberry!

DHREA 16/06/2018

 

There’s a new wave of health and wellness, and it doesn’t include pharmaceutical drugs. Natural suppliments and alternative medicines have been on the incline fore quite sometime, but we’ve seen a dynamic wave of quality products to help those who choose an alternative path to wellness.

Today, we’re focusing on the wonderful benefits of Elderberry.

Helen Sanders, editor at Health Ambition, wrote, “Elderberries have been used for centuries in the practice of folk medicine. Lately, modern science has been catching up, however. This tiny berry truly defines the phrase “small but mighty” when it comes to potential benefits for your well being. It’s no surprise that with the health and nutrition community keeping up with the latest scientific revelations, elderberry supplements have started to become increasingly popular.

(Click here to view the full writing! It’s wonderfully written, and filled with great information!)

Elderberry, also known as Sambucus, is rich in antioxidants. In fact, elderberry contains twice as many antioxidants as blueberries. These antioxidants are called flavonoids and they can help to stimulate and strengthen the immune system and help reduce flu symptoms!

Elderberry also has anti-inflammatory compounds called anthocyanin, and these are believed to help reduce the common flu symptoms, such as body aches and pains, as well as fever. Research has found that Elderberry gives people a significant improvement from type A and B flu strain. But, that just scratches the surface of what elderberry can do for overall wellness.

There are lots of elberberry juices, candies and treats on the market, but which is best for you? Once again, we recommend the fantastic article written by Helen Sanders at Health Ambition! Helen outlines all of the benefits of elderberry, and has quality products available to try out.

Don’t be a prisoner to OTC remedies and the same old, same old that never seems to work. Try a more natural approach and start seeing the difference today!

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!
