Real Estate Investing Is A Better Gamble Than The Lottery


Real estate investing begins when you move to the starting point.

Get ready.

Get set.

GO...

Are you ready to begin a real estate investing career? Or, are you already investing in real estate some, and want to expand your holdings? Or, are you investing in real estate a lot, but want to streamline your operation?

If you prefer real estate investing to a J-O-B, here's a tip on the real estate investing gamble for hitting the jackpot, striking it rich, and quitting that day job!!!

As one of my professors use to say, "Let's commence, to begin, to start, to get ready, to GO."

Do you bet on the lottery?

I am amazed at how many people throw their money away buying lottery tickets with such slim chances at winning!

At the start of 2004, Tennessee cranked up its new state lottery. The news media fanfare went on for months. Tennessee hired the lottery director from Louisiana to set up Tennessee's system, and this media publicity aired every night on the news as the public was whipped into a frenzy. Finally, the kickoff. Within just weeks, the announcement aired that Tennessee had taken in $50 million in lottery sales, and then $100 million in lottery sales. Newscasters quietly mentioned, however, that a whopping $100,000 had been paid out already in winnings. Wow! $50,000 in winnings compared to $100 million in ticket sales. What a windfall. (For the lottery, that is) Then came the subdued mention that some store owners were shutting down their recently-opened outlets out of conscience at seeing so many ticket purchases by regular customers who did not even have enough money to buy groceries! And all this ballyhoo was presented under the guise of lottery money to subsidize college scholarships.

Isn't it great for kids to get a good education, and isn't it greater that I can buy a lottery ticket - not in paying for my own kids' education - but to help other folks' kids get their education!

And in the meantime, I might strike it rich!!!

Come on. (Where is common sense logic?)

Some fishermen friends several years ago liked to boast about how much money they spent every year on lottery tickets in another state. When I pinned them down to their actual winnings, they admitted they spent over $10,000 a year buying tickets, and they CLAIMED they always made more in winnings than they spent for tickets. Funny thing, however, they couldn't show me a tally of their win-loss record!

If you are a gambler who wants to make it big in some game of chance, you need to visit Vegas instead of reading this article.

But if you really want to win the big stakes without taking the big risks, real estate investing is a great game of chance!

Oh yeah, I'm a gambler, too, but I like REAL chances at winning. I want the stats on my side.

Twenty-five years ago I made one of the biggest gambles of my life by starting out with nothing and trying to hit the jackpot investing in real estate. It was a gigantic gamble because I had no cash and no credit. I was able to scrape together a $10 bill and a real estate contract, and I started shooting craps.

No, sellers didn't like my offers. Most threw the contracts back in my face. Success did not come easily. I was often very discouraged and frustrated. I actually did not know at that time of anyone ever who had started investing with a $10 bill, and I have never heard of anyone since. But I never threw in the towel. And within a year, I had somehow bought almost one million dollars in rental properties!

That's a gamble that paid off.

I like that kind of gamble.

Gamble when the odds are in your favor. http://CashinHouses.com/
