Barnes And Nobles Resources - Posted by Jlingle (seattle WA)

Posted by Jlingle (seattle WA) on July 27, 2005 at 21:27:25:

Anyopne know if i can check out some of these real estate courses that people are talking about at barnes and nobles like anything on flipping properties for some quick cash so i can get some income built up and get some advertising going. At the moment i have ZERO cash to invest in anything not even the courses so i have to do it the hard way and do this all by lots of reading…was just curious where i can go to get some of this info that i need to learn how to do flips without spending any money

Any help with this would be greatly apprieciated Thanks!

Do not know about Barnes and Noble but you can find lots of good software and books at the local Half-Price Books Store, One I know of is by the University of WA just north of the canal bridge on Roosevelt, the other is in Lynnwood in a small strip center…Google them up on the web at half-price books. Have bought lots of very good stuff there at very reasoable prices.

Good luck,

B&N doesn’t sell courses but there are plenty of books on REI. Many
are not about creative real estate, but there is plenty of good reading
there and at the library. Check the archives of this site and the article
sections on recommended books/reading.

I didn’t buy any courses until after my first deals. I read this site and
several books. I continue to borrow books from the library and buy
them on amazon and on ebay.

To be honest, with a few exceptions, I have not found a lot of courses
to have more than the books. Except more margins and wider spacing.
Ha-ha. That’s a little joke and will probably get this post deleted.

After your read some books on different REI topics, you will be able to
better decide where to spend your course $$.

Don’t just read about REI. Read about negotiating. Read the old
classics on motivation. Read Think and Grow Rich. Read the Rich Dad
Poor Dad stuff. Read How to Win Friends and Influence People…or
whatever it’s called. Read about money and read about abudance

But don’t read too long. There is NO replacement for experience in
this business. You’ll learn more by making offers than buying the right

Just my thoughts here. Happy reading, Kristine

The Two Word Secret To Success: SHOW UP… - Posted by Paul Strauss

You need to get to your nearest REIA. Show up to everything. Find out where investors are going to be and get there. The best way to learn is to glean knowledge from experienced investors.

The best way to start IMHO, is as a bird dog. Once you know enough to find a good deal, you’ll have plenty of investors lining up to pay you for that service.

I was at your WCRT July meet. The topic was Wholesaling and Birddogging. I was the guy who commented on my experiences so far as a Birddog. But what does IMHO mean?
