Follow Along As I Open Up My House Flipping Business

Home » Blog » 34 Weeks Flipping Houses » Follow Along As I Open Up My House Flipping Business

This is not an easy thing for me to do.  I am really putting myself out there by doing this.

For reasons explained in the video on the right side of this page, I am turning all of my attention to reinvigorating my real estate investing business and letting everyone in on it. (No, I am not “locking myself and 5 other investors in a hotel room in Chicago for 3 days” – Is it just me, or do all the “gurus” use this?)

This is a great opportunity to see how a successful real estate investing business operates.  At the same time, you guys will be holding me accountable to get things done.  To actually get my butt back in gear.

In the following months, I am going to try to document, on this blog:

  • My Marketing
  • Analysis of Leads
  • Which Leads I Schedule to See and Why
  • Offers I Make
  • Houses I Put Under Contract
  • The Rehab Process
  • The Sale Process
  • The Final Flip Analysis With Detailed Deal Numbers

Thanks for your interest and I’m glad you found the blog. Invite your friends that are interested in real estate investing.  I really would like to get your feedback and ideas as I work to bring my business back to the level it was at last year and to surpass it.

Danny

    Hey Danny,

    Found your blog, I’m definitely interested in learning this business. Especially wholesaling to start off with. Do you recommend any good courses that helped you get started?

    Thanks

    • Danny Johnson

      Christian,

      I learned a lot from an old Ron LeGrand course. It had three sections: Wholesale/Retail, For Sale By Owner, Lease Options. Don’t know if you can find it anywhere now. Maybe check ebay. I think I paid about $150.

      Danny

      • Carey_PA

        I have the course and would be willing to part with it Christian. Contact me and we can discuss if you’d like.

        • Carey_PA

          P.s. ignore my reply…just read that you already have it. Well if anyone else is interested contact me lol

  • Christian

    Danny,

    Yeap, I actually own it I’ve had it for quite sometime. Looks like ill be digging through it now. I’m actually located in San Diego, I’ve heard things are tough here…Either way I’m going to follow your marketing methods.

    • Danny Johnson

      Christian,

      You are lucky to live in San Diego. My wife and I love California and vacation there more often than anywhere else.

      You’ve got to love his course. He’s very quotable. “Don’t go rollin’ through the war zone, drivin’ your fancy car, wearing lots of jewelry!” 🙂
      It’s a little dated, but still mostly relevant. Buy cheap, cheap, cheap.

    I read your 7 crazy real estate stories. Hilarious, yet offered some good lessons. Not negotiating with the woman of unsound mind showed good ethics, but did you worry that an unscrupulous investor would come around and take advantage of her?

    • Danny Johnson

      Mathew,

      Unfortunately, there is no way I could prevent someone else from taking advantage. She was living with someone (the guy in the camo gear) and, though strange, sounded like he may have been enough to help.

  • Arthur Garcia

    Danny, I am looking forward to tracking your work. I too invest in property, I am Buy and Hold guy (I have a full-time gig), but I love learning and reading about real estate. It will be good to see real life examples – most REI books always have hypothetical examples. I’d love to interview you and learn about your story on my podcast sometime.

    take care!

    • Danny Johnson

      Arthur,

      Thanks. Sorry to hear about the buy and hold problem. Just kidding. I just don’t like rentals. Prefer owner financed notes for long term.

      I would consider an interview.

  • Kevin

    Hi Danny,

    Not only is this a great idea, it is a rare opportunity for investors just starting out to see step by step from a successful investor at no cost. I firmly believe that there are many obstacles in life that will try to push you down but if you are strong and determined there are paths to get around those obstacles. Thanks for providing a path Danny!

    • Danny Johnson
