The Auction Room: Where Dreams Are Made or Broken

I want to take you on a journey to a place that changed my life—the auction room. If you’ve never been to a real estate auction, buckle up because it’s a rollercoaster of emotions, strategy, and, yes, a little bit of luck.

My First Auction Experience
I still remember my first time in Montgomery County, Texas. The room was divided into two sides: bank foreclosures on one side and tax deed auctions on the other. And let me tell you, the difference was night and day.

The Crowd Tells the Story
On the bank foreclosure side, there were about 200 investors competing for 20 properties. On the tax deed side? About 200 properties and only 20 investors. That’s when it hit me—this was where the real opportunity lay.

Why Tax Deeds?
You might be wondering, why tax deeds? Well, I’ve done over 3,000 deals in my career, and I can tell you that tax deeds offer a unique blend of low competition and high reward. Just a few months ago, I bought a thousand properties in Benton County, Arkansas, for an average of $350 each. Some of those I’m selling for $17,000 to $20,000!

The Strategy
The strategy is simple but requires dedication. You need to research, understand the market, and most importantly, be present. You can’t score a goal if you’re not in the game.

Your Turn
So, are you ready to step into the auction room? Trust me, it’s a game-changer. And hey, if you buy your first property, don’t forget to send me a testimonial!
