@Ceasar Blackman a simple yellow letter is the fastest way to get the phone ringing.
Thanks again guys
@Sam Craven , Great story. Congrats for making it happen.
Great Story : ) very inspiring
Just listened to the podcast. Great stuff. Congrats on all the success.
Can you share of the 27 deals you've done, how many were wholesales and how many were flips. And, what was the deciding factor on which avenue to chose?
Those were fun conversations.
That is fantastic results!!!! I have been on BP since 2008 and have never sold 1 home to anyone, I dont think there are people here in BP looking to buy in Memphis, mostly people who have homes for sale.
That is truly an awesome success story!
always great to hear of other success stories in the Houston area :)
@Jim Deason looking over the spreadsheet it looks like about 65% of the properties we wholesaled. The rest were flips.
The deciding factor will always be what you can buy it for, and its location. If its in a good median price area or under, and i cant buy it low enough to flip it, then there is a pretty good chance I can pay more for it, and sell it to a buy and hold investor.
Our philosophy is target our marketing as best as we can but turn every lead into cash somehow.
Thanks again for the kind words, BP is a great resource that helped make it happen for us.
Really enjoyed your story @Sam Craven - there are some on BP that would argue that "wholesaling is not real estate investing" - but I think you are a perfect example of the most REAL type of real estate investor with your ratio of pure wholesale deals to flips. This thread reminded me to go listen to your podcast. Bravo to BP (and the people that make it interesting) for giving us all a place to up our game!
Congrats Sam! Thank you for sharing your inspirational story.
congrats man! I'm starting out and working yellow letters as well, and I WILL be joining everyone else who's been successful
