My Toolbox and Other Resources
Over the years I have come across some great tools and resources that have helped my real estate investing business tremendously. Some of these items I’ve found myself and some have been referred to me by fellow investors. I can not thank those people enough for being so generous, so I want to give back and share my favorite tools and resources with you.

Build Your Own Website
I use these website tools to create and manage my Blog, Lead Generating and Company websites. The best part about these tools is that you do not need to be a website expert to put up a very professional looking website up. There are many options out there, but I’ve found these to be the easiest and cheapest to use.
Websites Built for You
Building a website yourself is an awesome option if you have the time to learn the skills needed. However, what I have found is that the best use of your time is not to build a website. That was the original reason why I decided to have one built for me. A web developer was WAY to expensive so I needed other options. Below is a list of other options that I discovered and use with great success.
Other Website Tools
Here are a list of tools that I use. These tools help me keep track of website analytics, do website design, lead followup and task automation. When you don’t have a lot of time to waste it’s important to use the right tools. Every 30 minutes you save can be used to talk with sellers.
Lead Tools and Resources
I love me a good lead management system. No other tool can save you more time then one that can manage your leads and mailing campaigns. I put together a list of some of my favorites. Best of all they are either low cost or totally free. My Favorite one is obviously SI Lead Manager v7.
Courses I Recommend
I haven’t bought a lot of courses over the years…Only 3. One of those was a a wholesaling course written by Steve Cook which doesn’t exist any more. It was really good though. Below are the two other courses that I have bought and can highly recommend. Best part about them is they are cheap and have great content. No Upsells to speak of.
Real Estate Investing Networks
Please don’t spend thousands of dollars on real estate investing bootcamps or training. I’m all for spending money on education but throwing $15,000 on some Guru’s bootcamp is just insane! Learn the way I did by immersing yourself in rei communities. Here is a list of my favorites.
My favorite way to learn about real estate investing and internet marketing these days is by listening to Podcasts. There are so many great ones out there that it’s tough to follow them all. I’ve narrowed down my list to only the ones I think are the best and can’t miss.
Real Estate Investor Blogs
One of the most in-depth way to learn how to invest in real estate or just keep up with the trends is to read blogs. There are so many outstanding real estate investors out there who are willing to share their knowledge for free…we are fools if we don’t follow them. While I could probably rattle off 50 or so blogs that are worth your time, here are my top 7.
