The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Last week successful investor Steve Whitteberry shared his stories of 'The Bad & The Ugly' with us. Today we get to discuss 'The Good'.
Steve will discuss his use of Self Directed IRA's and how they're helping him prepare for retirement. We'll also discuss 'Alligators' and how they can eat up all your Cash Flow.
And we'll also compare our experiences purchasing two separate 4-units, both of which were bought for a great price at the bottom of the market, but had two very different outcomes for each of us.
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Sometimes we come across deals that are too good to be true but we suspend our better judgement because the person selling those deals is so persuasive and says all the right things.
Steve Whitteberry is our guest today. Steve is a successful real estate investor who will share his stories of making investments and working with certain investors that he later came to regret. Steve will share the valuable lessons he learned from these experiences that will hopefully prevent you from making the same mistakes.
In part one of our interview we will also discuss Robert Allen's 'No Money Down', the value of land, and helping people who are going through the foreclosure process.
Many experienced investors can share this story: the one about the deal they chased for months or years, spent countless hours and phone calls and emails and money on, invested all their energy and emotion into, and no matter how hard they tried, it just wouldn't close, it couldn't close, and eventually they had to admit defeat and walk away.
Dealing with these types of setbacks can be devastating. But learning to overcome them can be life changing.
Today we discuss what happens when 'failure is not an option' turns into 'failure is inevitable' with Keith Littlepage, a successful investor and business owner who is brave enough to share his story of the Florida land deal that almost broke him and the aftermath that no one could have expected.
Keith will also discuss his use of private money, and an unlikely funding source he's discovered that has been a 'game changer' for him.
