🚨 Alex Deacon’s March Real Estate Workshop Announced! 2 HUGE GUEST SPEAKERS! 🚨

DHREA 22/02/2019

Last month we discussed the concept of Zero Money Down which is super valuable if you want to scale any business, especially Real Estate Investing. This month we will have two guest speakers and we will go into more detail on the methods, legal issues, and paperwork needed to put such deals together. Josh Caldwell will cover the different methods of creativity and the pros and cons of each. Attorney Matt Beam will cover any legal issues to be aware of and any simple paperwork needed for lease options, land contracts, assumptions of mortgages etc.. etc… We cover these topics once a year along because they are arguably one of the top five concepts you need to master in order to grow your portfolio. The better you are at finding and using other peoples money or the sellers equity then the quicker you will be able to grow a portfolio.

Featured Blog by Alex Deacon: Saying “No” Can Be Your Best Investment

DHREA 07/02/2019

I thought it would be a good time to write about this issue I have right now. I have so many deals in the pipeline, and more coming at me from all directions, that I don’t know when to stop.

I can compare it to an addict with a substance abuse problem. It is very difficult when you have this serious mental condition. Obsessive drive to succeed (and to beat the other person to that real estate deal) can be very frustrating to say the least. I have to keep reminding myself there are only so many hours in the day, and so many days in our lives, and we need to be smart about which deals to chase and which to let go.

If I could give one piece of advice here, I would say don’t over analyze the deals you have in front of you. It might be better to sleep on it and discuss with another trusted advisor before pulling the trigger. The compound effect of small and almost unnoticeable changes every day will, at the end of the year, become a large impact on whatever you do.

If you are losing weight at a rate of 1/4 of a pound lost a week, it will never be noticed by you or anyone. But at the end of the year, you will have lost 13 pounds. It’s no different than building your business and your real estate portfolio: slowly and with more control. By the end of the year, you will make leaps and bounds with a lot of less stress and financial burdens.

Good luck to all of you, and learn when to say NO!
