The Most In-Depth Case Study Ever!

by Jason Hanson on December 3, 2008 · 1 comment


My boredom is going to make you rich! Check it out. We entrepreneurs get bored easily. Instead of joining the latest multi-level marketing scheme, or joining the next internet get-rich-quick scheme, I’ve decided to buy a new primary residence (that’s a very important lesson. The reason I’ve made so much money in real estate is because I never lose focus and get distracted).

Anyways, I’ve decided for the New Year I want to move. And, I’m going to detail step-by-step everything I do to purchase my new place. So for those of you who still haven’t done a deal, or think you can afford to own your own home, I’m going to show you how easy it is.

As I begin this process, here’s what I’m looking for in the new “Love Shack” (it’s a little old place where we can get together).

  • I want a place in Fairfax, VA
  • It has to be at least four bedrooms
  • I want a single family house, no townhouses and definitely no condos
  • I’m getting a hot tub, so my new house has to have a good place to put the hot tub

That’s all I can think of for now. I’m not too picky. However, I will be pickier than a regular deal, because I’m actually going to be living in this place.

Since I’ve identified my criteria, this week I’m going to begin marketing. I’m going to start by mailing to absentee owners. Next week, I’ll give you the exact steps I used to order my mailing list.

If I don’t have much luck with absentee owners then I may hire someone to distribute flyers in the neighborhood’s I want to live in. I sure hope I buy a new place, before this “bright idea” of mine wears off.

Just make sure to follow this blog for the next several weeks and you will hopefully see the A-Z process of buying your own home using creative real estate investing methods.

How did your house hunting go? Did your strategy work of mailing to homeowners?
