One of the most common questions I get via email goes something like this:
“Coach Dave, that’s great that you live in Florida, where the real estate market is booming. But I live in Nowheresville, Nebraska. Are there any good deals near me?”
I can’t tell you how many times I have heard someone say something like this.
For some reason, there is a false belief that in order to make money in real estate, you must live in either Texas, Florida, or California.
But that couldn’t be farther from the truth. The fact is, there are opportunities to flip houses in every city and town in the US.
I’m sure your friends and family are among the naysayers telling you that you don’t live in the “right market” to flip houses.
The fact is, while I get emails from people who seem to be stuck on believing that there are no deals near them, I also get emails from people who are completing amazing deals and sharing their success story with me.
Just this past weekend alone, I received at least a half-dozen emails from people landing deals and selling houses netting anywhere from $19,000 to $120,000 in profit.
In fact, 2 different people emailed with questions this weekend about how to legally tax shelter $90,000 and $110,000 from the sale of their recent flips.
These are not real estate gurus. These are common folks just like you and me. They simply found a good deal near them, made an offer, rehabbed it, and sold it for an honest profit.
Does this excite you? I hope it does. My goal in writing this email was to give you that “nudge” you need to get out there and flip your first house.
I want to let you know that if other people can do it, so can you. Common folks all across America are successfully flipping houses every day.
