    Realtors- Can You Show Me How To Find Great Deals? – Real Estate Investing

    Joe: Hey, it’s Joe again. I’ve got another question here. “I have a lot of investors who tell me that they’d buy property from me if I can find them a good deal as a realtor, but when I go into the MLS, the best deals sell in minutes. The rest of them aren’t all that great, especially in this market with the prices dropping. How can I find good deals for my investors?” – James P. in Madison, Wisconsin. Joe: You’re right. If you go into the MLS, you can probably buy properties all day long, 10-15% under market value in just about any market except in a really,…

    Realtors- I Want To Get Rich Quick. Can You Help Me? – Real Estate Investing

    Question: “Are you one of those get rich quick guys from late night TV? I want to get rich quick.” Joe: (He didn’t put a name on there). Joe: This is not a get rich quick scheme. I don’t know if I have to tell you that to most of you. It’s a business building program. If you don’t do anything, you don’t make any money. If you follow through with the process, though, you can do very well and its very likely that you will get rich, but it takes time. Joe: I tell everybody, ‘Give yourself time to make this happen.’ I think I mentioned that in a…

    Hey, it’s Joe. I’ve got another question. “I was reading your article on building a buyers list and I think I understand how to build a database and use the autoresponders and the web pages but I don’t know which of your buyer marketing strategies work best.

    Realtors- Make Money In Real Estate Without Doing Rehabs – Real Estate Investing

    Joe: Hey, it’s Joe. I’ve got another one here. Question: “Hi, Joe. Investing is a great idea but I prefer to be a realtor because I just want to make income. I don’t want to be a landlord. I did that a few years ago and it was a nightmare.” Joe: Boy, I can tell you some nightmare stories about being a landlord myself. I had a situation in one of my houses where a guy changed the oil of his motorcycle on my living room carpet. I had some people rip out their electrical plugs and call the health department and I had to put them up in a…

Some of those emails sell the stuff that I teach, because I make a lot of money off of teaching and coaching and cd’s and books. It’s a publishing company – it’s called Crump Publishing.…

    Realtors- How To Use Automation To Get FSBOs To Call You – Real Estate Investing

    Hi, it’s Joe. Here’s the next one. It says, “Joe, you keep talking about your incredible FSBO system. Would you tell me how it works or do I have to pay you thousands of dollars to find out?” It’s a very simple process. What we’re doing is we’re going to for sale by owners and instead of saying, ‘Hey, I’d like to list your property for you,’ and having them get all upset with us and hang up on us, what we do instead is say, ‘I’d like to buy your property. I’m an investor and we buy on terms. Would you consider selling?” Instead of calling them by phone,…
