Guerrilla Guide To Real Estate

After I wrote my first book about investing in probate properties, I got many questions about how to finance the properties, what to do if you had credit issues, how to be certain you could sell the property after you bought it, etc.

Consequently, about one year later I wrote a second book and called it my guerrilla financing guide. In it I discuss alternate ways for finding financing that you probably have not thought of.

Since many of you might be concerned about how you are going to sell your property once you buy it, one of the solutions I discuss is building your buyer list before you make your purchase.

How do you do that you ask?

Well, I don’t want to give away all my thunder, but here’s one quick idea.

How about calling a few CPA’s?

“Hello Ms. CPA. Would you happen to have any clients that might be interested in buying Real Estate at a discounted price?”

“Oh…you do, but you can’t give me their number? That’s OK. Could you please give them mine and have them call me?”

Do you think if you called ten to fifteen CPA firms over a couple of hours you might get a few…or fifty…interested buyers for your “yet-to-be-bought” property?

I guarantee you will.

It’s all part of “see the people, tell your story.”

I have a standing joke that you could drop me off at your kids soccer match and I’ll come home with names of three potential buyers of my deals.

See the people, tell your story.

How about inviting me to your next church picnic?

Yep, you got it….

“That’s a lovely hat Mrs. Ruddlesheim, could you please pass the deviled eggs? Oh, by the way…would you happen to know anyone who might be interested in buying Real Estate at a discounted price? Your grandson does? Really! Do think I might give him a call?”

You got it…three more names to my list.

See the people, tell your story.

It’s as easy as eating cherry pie on the Fourth of July!

So that’s my tip for the day…”see the people, tell your story!”

Oh, by the way, at one time I had a list of 27 potential buyers.

The Darling Bride Sharon had to cut me off on church picnics before I got banned.
