    that’s EXACTLY like 50% of the houses around detroit. the other 50 are ranches, which are way more desirable.

    can’t wait to see the after pics. good luck, but you know what you are doing!! πŸ™‚

    Hey Jason; long time.
    Will you have to do the trash out? I hope you leave the mirrored shower door. You can comb your hair while you do your business.

    Hey Don,

    Nope, the seller is taking a corporate job in another city, and the company will be doing a formal relocation and moving all of her stuff. So, it should be relatively empty (I hope!) by the time we purchase it…

    Wow, you found a wholesaler who can actually bring you a deal? Are they willing to travel to GA? πŸ™‚

    Andy – No! You can’t have her!!! πŸ™‚

    Just ordered your books and looking foward to reading them.Just wanted to ask if you know of any apps or software to use on site to estimate the rehab with costs of materials and labor?
    Thank you,

    Hey George,

    I don’t know of any that are for investors. That said, I’m actually working on some software myself…give me a month or two… πŸ™‚

    Thanks for getting back to me. My partner and I went to the Fortune Builders 3 day summit and they touched on their software and it seemed to be just what one would want. We decided not to move on for the 25 k so of course it’s not available to me.

    Thanks again,

    I would like to get into wholesaling, however I get hung up on “POF’s”. Do you have any ideas to overcome this little obstacle? To make an offer this is needed.

    Thanks in Advance

    Hi EJ,

    You’ll need POF if you plan to make offers on bank-owned properties or short sales, but for various reasons, I wouldn’t recommend trying to wholesale either of those. Likewise, you’ll often need POF if you’re planning to wholesale properties right off the MLS, which I also don’t recommend.

    What I do recommend is finding off-market deals (using marketing like direct mail, cold calling, bandit signs, fliers, door knocking, etc) and working with the seller to wholesale those deals. These sellers tend to be more motivated (i.e., desperate) and I would recommend being completely honest with them about what you’re trying to do. If you’re honest, they’ll know that you don’t plan to buy the house yourself, and you won’t need to provide POF.
