Dirk–thank you for your comments. I have read your posts and been encouraged. My questions was not whether
to get the courses/books or not, but how to save a little money on duplication, if there was any.
However, I do agree with you, as I am one who would
benefit from repetition and review. Audio tapes can
always be reviewed in the car or in the shower.
I am currently viewing John Behle’s 5-day video workshop on notes, and Ron Legrand on Fast Cash.
Ron goes into lease option in detail.
However, I live in an area where there are a lot of
mobile homes both in lots and on private land, and lakeside, as it is a rural state. They are not all
bad, disgusting, like some people think. So I did originally
think of mobile homes. And I did learn from this site
that “free mobile home–needs to be moved” is not a
I like to get several approaches to a technique. Also,
being fairly new, it does take some time for it to
I did a lot of reading on this board. I’m a "newbie"
but with some prior experience in appraising, former
real estate license, and some time value of
money basics that I was wanting to review. The Behle
course was good for that, and of course, much more.
After I ordered Ron LeGrand’s book,
Fast Cash Quick Turn, $15 or less from Amazon.com
it all started to fall into place. It was an over-view
for me and it got me more interested and less doubtful.
Never have so many sticky notes peeked out of the pages
of one book!
When the order page had the whole list of courses together, I wanted to order about $1300 worth of courses. I spent hours pouring over the course descriptions and comparing prices. Well, I’d say,
order something, to get started.
I have found some duplication on the tapes vs videos
from same sources and between different sources, but
actually, I no longer care. Sometimes, you hear something for the first time, and it seems odd,
too good to be true, unfamiliar, but after you see
50 posts on the subject on this board you start to iron out the wrinkles, and even you hear it repeated on a
tape vs video, it just reinforces it. You are listening
in your car, or as you fix dinner, and it just helps
you let it sink in.
But then, you can’t really index it without something in print, so a book is good place to start.
Thanks to all who posted here.
