Your computer has stuff on the hard drive that you can access even when you are not on the Internet. But this information had to be assembled or created by you as an individual.

    • Meditation For Real Estate Success

      In my opinion, meditation is the single most important thing you can do for your success and happiness in life.Meditating itself is not religious or philosophical in nature.You don’t have to change your lifestyle or beliefs.Sometimes people think that meditating is just for Eastern Religions, and that is not the case.

    • Analyzing The Property – Most Important Aspect Of Investing

      One thing is for sure, just because you find a foreclosure that is selling for half of what it did three years ago doesn’t mean that it’s a good deal.

    • Best Type Of Real Estate Inventory For Negotiating Deals

      My favorite way to negotiate properties is dealing with aged inventory.This is a much less stressful way of buying properties. Let’s think about this for a moment. It is kind of like the laid-back Warren Buffet type of investing versus the stressed-out day trader.If you need your properties to age before you buy them, then there is no hurry to do anything.
