The Illusion of Rejection: Why Your Fears are Bogus and How to Get Over It

The Illusion of Rejection: Why Your Fears are Bogus and How to Get Over It I may not be very popular for the following statement, but that isn’t my goal anyway, my goal is to improve lives. I don’t believe your fear of rejection holds much validity. I get questions about how to deal with rejection more than I should. And it’s not the questions I don’t like; it’s the fact that adults are asking them and struggling with the notion as if rejection is personal. Please don’t take offense. It’s not just a few people; ...

Closing Like a Pro

Good Sales People Aren’t Born, They’re Trained. “But I’m not a salesperson,” you say. “I don’t need to close sales because real estate investing doesn’t require sales. That’s why I have an agent who sells the houses for me!” Excuse me while I take a sip of my coffee to suppress my chuckling. You could be the best in your area at marketing and creating leads. You could have all the distressed houses at your fingertips. But unless you can get the seller to sign, you’re out a whole lot of work while someone else snags ...

Many people don't realize how big a gold mine they're sitting on with the numbers in their directory. I've seen people build multi-million dollar businesses off of a client base that steadily grows but remains largely the same. Why? Because these business owners understand the importance ...

The Long and the Short of Short Sales

This is not a new strategy. It's been a buzz word since the recession of 2008, but many investors are beginning to shy away it thinking that it's an outdated strategy. They're wrong! If you've ever wondered about short sales--what they are and how you can benefit from them--consider this a lesson in Short Sale 101. A short sale is nothing more than a specified bid at a foreclosure auction done months in advance. Let me explain... There are two types of bids; full debt bids and specified bids: 1- FULL DEBT BID. The opening bid ...

What Are the Four Common Reasons Real Estate Investors Fail?

  Number One: Concentration on a Technique (Lease Option, Subject To, Foreclosure, etc.) Rather Than on Property Successful real estate investors concentrate on the property itself, rather than on a specific technique. This not only allows the investor to concentrate directly on where the most profitability resides, but also opens a much wider array of potential “deals” for the investor to consider. Nothing drives me crazier than when I am out at events and I am meeting with a client and I say, “What do you do?” And they say, “I am a wholesaler.” Great, understand ...
