I’ve got a question. If someone has a moment to respond I would really appreciate it. I’m 22 and very intrested in exploring real estate investing. I’ve applied for loans more then at least 20 times. But because of being so young my credits not established to the lenders satisfaction. My problem is how get in to real estate. Without the use of the so called tv scams. And unestablished credit history. My main intention is rental properties. If you have advice please respond.
Thank You

Hey I thought like you, I saw those infomercials and said it has to be a scam. so i went into real estate the hard way using my credit and purchasing 4 plexes. to my surpurise i found i didn’t want to be a land lord
after talking to other investors i found this site and purchased some of the courses. Now i can buy homes without my credit. I’ve just started to get serious and this weekend I am going to do two lease options on nice homes that I will take control of but never own!!

Open your mind to new experiences, and listen to those who have done it, and you will succeed.

Hope the Best

and change your life…

I wish I had listened to “those so called TV Scams” When I was your age… I would have been nice to retire before I was 30.

Most of the folks on television are just selling information… much of the same you can get here…

I think where the scam is… is that folks arent readily willing to accept new information and change their thoughts… and would rather blame others for their lifes misfortunes or lack of actions…

I cant tell you how many folks houses I go to and buy and they say something like… “So, is this like the Carleton Sheets guy on TV” I have his course around here somewhere…

The folks didnt take action…

So whether you believe something is for or not is up to you… But, I’ll tell you this… I havent used my credit to buy a single house in my career… I try to buy 4 a month…

So you decide… is it real or is it memorex… Your thoughts are yours to change…

It IS true that TV infomercial guys tend to overcharge for their info. I tend to agree with Reed that if an infomercial is trying to hook people by showing big ocean estates and learjets and Rollses and saying “all this can be yours if you buy my course” then one should be suspicious. But then again Robert Kiyosaki does infomercials and he’s clean. There are no hard and fast rules in this stuff. You should look at who the guru is trying to attract-many late night infomercials are targeted at desperate individuals who need money yesterday in order to strip them of what they do have moneywise for useless info.
