When something good happens to me I like to Pay It Forward to the people who have helped me along the way. For everyone who reads and comments on my blog or who sends me an email behind the scenes, you all inspire me to keep going. That means the world to me and I want to say THANK YOU!
Read on to see why I’m choosing to give away this Probate course and also take note of the Bonus Giveaway at the end of the post.
Probate Investing Got Me Over The Fence
Back in the summer of 2009 I was over a year into my investing career. Take the word career very lightly here, because to be honest all I was doing was reading about real estate investing. I dabbled with a foreclosure list gotten from listsource, driving for dollars, MLS listings and a few other lead sources. It took me 2 months of staring at these lists before I actually got the guts to send out my first batch of letters, boy was I nervous. I just sent out 1000 letters to get people to call me and I am not at all a phone person…gulp!
Finally sending out those letters though gave me a rush of euphoria…I was finally taking action! Three weeks and two responses later my euphoria had all gone away and I found myself deflated and wondering what I was doing wrong (this is when I didn’t realize it takes time to build a mailing campaign). Over the next few months I just talked about sending mailers and spent my time going to open houses to learn my farm area. I became the Pretender Investor, the guy who talks a good game but never really does anything. I was frustrated with myself.
What turned me around really was when I decided to concentrate my efforts on one type of lead list and one mailing strategy. Keeping things simple was going to be the only way. Probate looked tempting after reading many glowing opinions about it over at FlippingHomes.com and REIClub.com forums. I then found Ron Mead’s course and made the plunge. I was going to follow it to the tee so help me…
I did just that, and here is a series of posts I did back in 2009 about me going through Ron’s course…
- Finding The Deceased Part 1
- Finding The Deceased Update
- Finding The Public Notice Newspaper
- Finding That Darn Public Notice Newspaper
- Creating Your Lead List
- Is Real Estate Involved?
- 4 Import Keys to a Probate Letter
- Make Money From Your Leads
- Probate List is In hand
- What to Say When They Call?
- Got the Meeting Now What?
- Figuring Out Your Offer
- Follow Up Postcard
- Same as Last Week
- Rinse and Repeat
Even tough I didn’t have obvious success with my first run at probate, I definitely credit it for how I got where I am today. It helped me get over the proverbial fence.
Over the years, I’ve gotten a ton of people asking me about Ron Mead’s probate course, 31 Days to Profits in Probate Real Estate. I always say it is great for newbie investors who just need to get started. The reason is that Ron doesn’t overload you with information, he just gives you a straight line method of taking action. I recommend it to everyone!
So as a way of giving back to you all who have motivated and helped me, I would love to pay it forward and help someone out who is just getting started and needs a little direction. So I’m going to purchase a copy of the 31 Days to Profits in Probate Real Estate course and for a lucky newbie.
