How To-Real Estate Investing with No Money

Is this a catch 22 or what? You’ve little or no money and want to make money investing real estate. Do you spend what you have to learn how and find yourself left with nothing to implement the techniques, strategies, and systems you learn, or do you take what you have and apply it to what you already know?

If you know absolutely nothing of how to do this then I would suggest you spend the money on learning how first. Then find more money to put your knowledge to work. On the other hand if you already have some knowledge of what to do–maybe you’ve already spent 1000′s to learn–then I say take what you have and just go do it.

I personally have spent thousands learning. Was it what I needed to do? Maybe, maybe not, but it’s done and so be it. The mistake I made was not sticking to one thing. I would spend all my money on learning the latest and greatest “new” strategy that is working in “Today’s” market. Then of course I found myself left with nothing to implement my knowledge with. By the time I had more money to go to work I would again spend it on learning the latest and greatest new strategy. Granted I gained a Lot of knowledge this way, but did it ever make me any money, NO.

This last time I resisted the temptation to chase down the “Newest” strategy and simply took my money and my knowledge and just Went For It. Am I Glad I Did!!

See I could have gotten another wonderful coaching program with all the bells and whistles to take me from know nothing to closing my first deal, but I realized I didn’t know nothing. Did I know “Everything,” no, but I felt I knew enough to just give it a go. What’s the worst that could happen, I end up with no more money? I would not have had any money left the other way either, so why not.

Now was I one of the amazing success stories the gurus show you who went out and found their first deal in one week and made thousands of dollars? Heck NO!! It took me a long time before I finally closed that elusive first deal. Was it worth the effort? Heck Yeah!! That first deal made each subsequent deal that much easier and now they are old hat. Simple as Pie. Although pie really isn’t that simple is it.

What I’m saying is that all the fears that were holding me back all those years began to just fade away. Fears like making fool out of myself, embarrassing myself from my lack of knowledge, FAILURE, or simply just talking to people, now all seem quite trivial. Although when starting out they certainly can look like Mt Everest barefooted.

So do you spend your money to learn, or should you spend your money to do. I cannot answer that for you. Only you will know when you are ready, but you need to get ready sooner rather than later. My life has changed and yours can to. Will it be easy? Will you be the one who finds a deal in week one? Probably not. You will like most of us have to work hard and stay determined, You will have to overcome many obstacles like figuring out what to do first, next, and so on. Wondering if you really have a deal or did you value it incorrectly. Actually making an offer. Finding a buyer to flip to. Or a dozen other things that are all part of it. But if you just keep plugging along it will one day all fall together and you will then be on your way.

Ultimately can you make money in real estate investing with no money…Not really…it’s going to take money, but you can have enough to make it if you just try. It will cost some of you more than others and then there will always be that guy who did it with nothing and found his, or her, first deal in a day. So it wasn’t you. Don’t give up, put you mind to it, and stay determined. Those three things are probably just as if not more important than the tons of knowledge you could spend your money on first. Then after you’ve done it, Go get some more knowledge, because you can never have enough in this business.
