Hi, this is my first post. A short story to tell: I attended a real estate seminar years ago and later used one of the methods they taught. I found an owner of a new retirement home near Sun City, Arizona (He wanted to move into a different home that was actually in Sun City) wanted to sell and was willing to carry a loan with $10K down. I offered $5K now and another $5K in one year. Deal made, I found a buyer who put $5K down with a promise to get permanent loan within one year. (A lawyer was used to set up the details) So now I had a nice new home (nice barrel tile roof -- pretty house). The monthly payments from my buyer more than covered payments to the seller. Unfortunately my buyer was unable to get permanent financing and I could not come up with the second payment of $5K and the whole deal went bad. Anyway, this was my first experience as a beginning entrepreneur. I still remember my guru telling me that "if I need money, buy something."
