Hi Land Academy staff and members,
I’ve been a long time listener to real estate podcasts, I have read many books and own single family rentals in TX & LA. I’ve been living and working overseas in Singapore for the last 2 yrs+. Since leaving the USA, I’ve been investing in passive real estate syndications in mobile home parks, self storage, multifamily apartments, grocery anchored strip mails, industrial, hotel thru sites like Crowdstreet, RealtyShares and directly with experienced operators I’ve learned about through podcasts.
Before leaving the USA, I came across Mark Podolsky (or another) and listened to him on/off, then I started consistently listening to LandGeek once he brought on over members (Scott Todd, etc.). I’ve long believed in the opportunity of the concept of buying land at 20-30% of its value and selling it quickly either for cash or on terms at a discount. At some point (~1 yr ago) I came across LandAcademy and found Steve & Jill’s podcast was more valuable to me from education, entertainment, etc.
I avoided getting started as I thought living aboard would add too many hurdles, like:
-mailing from outside the US (I’m planning to use Offers2owners or other service)
-getting calls in the middle of the night (Singapore is ~12-16 hrs ahead of USA, but use VM or PatLive, etc. to screen or record calls)
-return address for accepted offers (still deciding on this, either virtual mailbox or family in location they aren’t likely to move soon)
-website for sales & posting to various outlets (registered http://www.LandPerfection.com last night, planning to use the WordPress youtube tutorial by Tyler Moore to setup my website before YE2018)
While I’m trying to get my phone number/call service setup, permanent address and website setup before doing my first mailer, I’ve been watching the training videos and look forward to my first mailer. I’ve also partnered on our first purchase with another new member and plan to do another with that partner soon.
If anyone is also looking for a money partner, let me know. I don’t yet have Land experience, but I’m a hard workers and willing to fund for 50% of the profits.
