Hi. I am a wholesaler out of jacksonville fl. I dived into this business head first just as of last week. To explain my drive i took what i have learned so far about wholesaling and finding properties and already began to build me a list of houses. I found out just in my zip code alone its over 8k houses available and I WALKED my area for over an hour a day finding houses on top of other types of searches. When Im serious about.something I DEFINITELY go get it! Bottom line im here to learn...want to learn so lets network! Bless

Welcome to the site @Account Closed
Hey @Account Closed , he's an active investor/agent up in Jacksonville and may be interested in the deals you come across.
I wish you all the best Joseph!
@Brandon Turner Thanks man. I actually been on bigger pockets the beginning of last week before I actually made an account. Have about 7 pages front to back of notes from
The Ultimate Beginner’s Guide to Real Estate Wholesaling and listened to a few podcasts already and my favorite one is show 77 so far about negotiating deals. Man this site is incredible and I only wish I knew about this years ago but hey better late than never.
@Aaron Thivierge Hey thanks. I actually tried doing it when I made the account from my phone but couldn't. Got it now though! Would love to chat with you sometime. Before I even begin to talk with investors though I can't be a person with the "deer in the headlights" look lol. Definitely educating myself and researching all I can before I speak. Hope to do business with you one day.
Account Closed Oh yes most definitely have some expectations! I want success and I expect nothing less. I know it takes hard work and dedication and I am definitely no stranger to both! Thank you! Bless
Thank you @James Wise
Hey thanks! @Andrew Davis Coming from the entertainment business side of things that's how I worked. In the streets! Just applying that same hustle here. I'm excited about the opportunities that awaits. I appreciate the insight and will definitely reach out. Bless
@Account Closed that's awesome! I hope to hear success stories from you soon!
How did you find your leads?
@Tion Henley I walk my block and nearby neighborhoods. I work with someone who looks for distressed properties who buys them cash. I stay pretty much in the hood and in my area there are absolute TONS of abandoned properties, boarded houses and such. As im walking I simply write down the address and when I get home I start researching the properties on the city website(Specifically the Appraiser section) and so on. Direct mail is the way to go with what I find because there aren't any phone numbers listed. The city website has the owners info along with whatever current address they are located at.
Welcome to BP Joseph.
