You are only fooling yourself if you call yourself an investor

I know it sounds harsh, but the statement is true! I've been to many investor clubs and talked to many "Real Estate Investors" that have been going to the meetings for 5 years, yet have never actually invested in a single piece of property.

This is strange to me, but the more I talk to people the more I find out they call themselves investors because they buy all the books, go to every meeting and think they are experts. But, when you get right down to it, they are scared they will lose everything and will never actually invest anything more than the money they will pay for a book, a seminar, or the next year's investor club dues.

I love talking to the soon to be first time investor that has the light in their eyes and is ready and willing to go! I've even helped some out by showing that I believe in what they are buying so much that I will go in it with them, but they will have to split the profit with me 50/50%.

This usually separates the serious first time investors frm the wannabe. A real first time investor will jump at the chance to reduce their risk by 50%, and usually within one year they will purchase their second investment property without my help.

So why do I do this? Because I know that once an investor gets that feeling of joy that comes from getting a positive cash flow property check every month, they will buy another one. I love helping other investors. I buy a lot of properties, but I know I can't buy them all! So I'm willing to give back and teach others.

This is a no brainer for a novice investor, or the experienced investor. They can make money buying the great deals that I have found them.

If you are in the Portland Metro area and are interested in becoming an investor and would possibly like to take me up on my offer to go 50/50 with you on your first deal to get your toes wet in real estate investing, give me a call I will love to sit and talk to you.
