Of course, the concepts well known.prove the INVESTMENT posts were not my own.
One caveat: RE concepts are well known and are used by all of us in the business. Many people use the same process that I do to get rich in RE.
For than one hundred years illiterate immigrants have been coming to this great nation without even being able to speak English yet buying a two-flat in their first 12 mos. in the U.S. In the next year they trade for a four-flat, and then a six-flat.
It is so obvious and elementary that anyone even without an education can do it. What the poster and similar uneducated immigrants don't know are the sophisticated techniques and the tax plays which is why they pay my partners $500+/per hour to teach them how the real players do it.
But real estate as described by the poster is not "INVESTING." It is operating a simple ma-and-pa business that is no different than starting a delicatessen or a quick oil change shop. All three are operating businesses that require capital.
An investment (the equity or bond markets) is not a business that must be "worked" (except for traders), because the true investor can take her position and lock up the certificates in her safe deposit box without ever again having to worry about the investment.
Simple ma-and-pa businesses as the poster has described must be "worked," but require no skill or specialized knowledge. That is why the typical uneducated, non-English-speaking immigrant from (especially) Asia (Indians, Pakistanis, Chinese) or Eastern Europe (Poland and Russia) do so well when they come to the United States. They buy a two-flat or a twenty-unit flea bag motel or a slum property and parlay that into another American success story. VERY SIMPLE. PERFECT FOR SIMPLETONS.
