Key Quotes:

  •         “With land, you can get a lot of the information you need to from Google earth and other databases, you don't have to get inside a house to inspect it…”
  •         “You find the formula that works, and you stick to that plan, and in time the leads come, and the deals come…”
  •         “If you can find a good group of people, it can be hugely instrumental…”
  •         “The thing about the land business is that it is simple, but it's not easy…”
  •         “You just have to take that leap of faith and acknowledge that it's possible I could spend money on this and get nothing back in. I have to be okay with that, and because if you're not okay with that, then you'll never get anywhere because you'll never take the risk and do it…”
  •         “Of all the land in the US, only 3% of it has actually been developed and that 3% is what every other household seller and real estate investor is fighting over, where the land investors have this other 97%...”
  •         “Make sure the offer is super low, because if you end up being wrong, there's still a really big buffer of protection in there, based on that profit margin you built in for yourself…”
  •         “If you can think of places that just have intrinsic value that people really appreciate and are drawn to, that can be a good hint in terms of properties that are probably going to sell a little bit quicker there…”
