An Adventure In Deal Making

How To: Real Estate Investing;

The Mega Series!

Capt’n’s Log – July 22, 2019: The Life Of The Torrington Lead


How to make money Investing In Real Estate (see what I did there? I started my blog with a keyword I want to rank for. There an invaluable hint for you. You are welcome!). Going back to why I started this blog in the first place. What if I document one complete deal, from how we lure the leads, to said leads coming in, to working the lead, to closing the lead into a contract, to paycheck, day by day as it happens. Yes? huh? HUH? Brilliant idea huh?

The challenge here is that we get a ton of leads every day (as we all know by now), and picking one lead to document without knowing if said lead will amount to anything is a bit worrisome (don’t want to do all the work for nothing). I figure though even if the lead doesn’t amount to anything you all can still see value on how we get, handle, and manage our leads and nourish them best we can into a deal.

People Are Still Having A Hard Time Starting, And I Will Tell You Why.

But first I will tell you what imagonnadoo. I am going to start a new series of blog posts. This series will be called “Our Lead Adventures”. I am going to document the lives of our leads. You will be able to follow along every step of the way. Not only when something exciting happens, but also everything leading up to that exciting thing happening.

Do you know why people are having such a hard time wholesaling or starting to get into REI even with SO much information out there? I tell you why. I FIGURED IT OUT!! Because I am smart! How do you start… well… anything? You do a Google search! You find successful people, you find information and you learn and you imitate! So you find these gurus and you read their blogs and you see how it is done. Right? Yup Exactly the problem!

If you are used to reading blogs that talk about how “they got a deal, and wow, they closed the deal, and poom DAMN the house is flipped“. Well that is easy enough.. I can do it.. so you try doing it and suddenly you realize this is NOTHING like you have read it would be. So now you think you must be doing something wrong. You lose confidence and start doubting yourself. Why does it take me 45 days to finally get that friggin contract signed while all these successful people get it signed instantly and effortlessly. Well they DON’T! It just looks that way because they omit all the crap we all go through getting deals signed!

When getting a lead, no one shows you that there have been 45 email threads going back and forth about how we keep missing each others phone calls, and how  we keep missing the appointments to view the house, and all the other stuff that goes on that has not a damn thing to do with actual deal making and REI. Then why put that in, if it is just irrelevant stuff to deal making? Well because if you do not put that crap in, everyone is giving newbies a very distorted feel, and image of how it really is doing deals. If you put it in and people read it, they are right alongside me, MAKING that actual deal happen. I am bottling experience and giving it to you for free. That is exactly it. This is experience, transferred from me to you through a blog post! There, How smart am I!!

This, I believe , is what is missing in all other blogs out there. Usually, bloggers only write when something is happening, and a whole lot of valuable information, mood setting, anxiety, the waiting, the boring is omitted and the end result is a complete distorted reality of what it really is like, how it really is done, and what one really goes through making money, handling these leads and nurturing them through towards a closed deal.

Keep in mind this will get boring at times, but so is life very often, and this blog always has been real.

 

How To Navigate Our Wholesale And House Flipping Adventures.

So now, I need to explain how to navigate these random lead blurbs throughout this blog. If you have noticed, I have started to completely revamp this blog. I have started to make it nicer and more inviting to read. I am far from done but shut up!

So I will add “tags” to related blog posts. So when you click on the tag, all the blog articles with he same tag will be displayed. So I will label the life of this lead: “That Awesome Lead In Torrington”. Just click the tab and all the blog posts of this adventure will show up for you, making it easy for you to follow along. I will write this as a diary (as I have done for most of this blog), and every day something happens, boring or exciting, I will write an entry.

So now a bit of a back story.

So sit your ass down and pay attention.

The flying kind! oohh oohh and the kind with laser beams shooting out of his eyes… oohh oohh and also lasers out of his  hmmm… third eye… uhmm… you know…  the eye of his “tiger”. Now THAT is an original super power!

ANYWAYS, this is getting weird!

Where was I.. Oh yeah, sexy guy, can fly, and pees laser beams!.. Maybe some control over his tiger so he can aim and write his name in fire as he flies and hovers over the armies of enemies and writes his name in fire upon them without having to touch it!

Gaaadamnit I keep being sidetracked by laser toting pipis. OK OK

Reply From Seller From Our Auto-Responder:

When we say we get way too many leads streaming in, we really re not joking. We simply didn’t get back to her for almost a week. See when someone fills in the form on our website, the Carrot system sends an automated reply. People think (which is the point) that it is a life person writing these messages, so Miss C (lets call the seller this for now) thought we responded when she first filled in the form and then … silence… .

Now the following blurb of communication makes a little more sense:

 

That was all that happened this day.

Stay tuned to the same Bat Channel and the same bat hour! Cheerios!
