  2. Your Ideas:

    Home remodeling and real estate investing start from an idea!

    My Home improvement ideas and beginner investor reports came about from questions I received from investors and home remodeling friends over the years.

    This is why I set up the Ask-The-Rehabber® website for you.

    First about home remodeling, then it continued into real estate investing conversations, and that lead to questions.

    I'm no superstar, like anyone I've overcame job-loss, divorce, disabilities, then, after 30 years... 

    I discovered home remodeling and real estate investing is what I love to do! I enjoy conversations and working with people who like to do what I do! No Boss, customers, or employees! How about you?

    I learned from talking about our ideas, are where we begin to develop our plans!

    Or... Realize that some ideas may not suit us.

    Are you interested in rehabbing houses or your home like I am? 
    When I got started doing fixer-uppers I had a lot of questions, maybe you have some as well.
    Which leads to the next step...
  3. Talk About It!
    Who better to discuss our ideas about home improvements or real estate investing than with people like ourselves, that share our interests?

    I exhausted my family and friends with talking about home improvements, remodeling, and investing.

    I know now I can only discuss my favorite topics with people like you and our visitors doing similar projects as we do.

    Now, You and I can talk about and ask questions with the 1,000s of visitors here at Ask The Rehabber.

    Here, we can work out our remodeling or investing plans with people like you and me who share the same interests to either save money or make money on our houses, apartments, or any real estate property.

    It's an added bonus and exciting to know others are doing the same thing we're doing, as we work on our own house projects.

    It's simple to do!

    Got a question?
    Why search all over the internet for an answer or wait 30 days to go to the next real estate investor club meeting? Ask your question now at Rehabber answers to questions.

    If you've been investing in real estate or doing your own home remodeling projects for a while, we would love to hear about your accomplishments!

    Share your real estate success story and start your own editorial.

    You will get replies and be an inspiration to beginners who could benefit from your story! Thanks in advance and our visitors thank you too!
  4. Then We Need the Motivation to get into Action!

    Motivation is the foundation to take an Idea into Action!

    Once we confirm our ideas from asking questions and reading about other real estate success stories, it's easier to come up with our own home improvements ideas.

    Yet, a plan alone, is not enough to get into action!

    I have used the late Earl Nightingale's presentation for many years to give me the boost I needed get the ball rolling.

    Watch Earl's video on the importance of motivation.

    What he says it true, "We Become What We Think About!"

Do you enjoy home remodeling? I sure do!

That's how I started, with home improvements on my own home!

Commitment and Persistence...

I use my real estate license only for referral because remodeling houses appeals to me more than a job as a full time sales person's position.

Every time I would show or list a property, my thoughts were about what I can do with that property if I owned it
Now I'm committed to buying and selling fixer-upper properties!

When you'd rather be working on investment properties or looking to buy a home, using a Realtor® removes a huge amount of work and learning.

Real Estate Agents will do all the work and are persistent in finding properties you can remodel and then, help you find the buyers you need to make a profit.

I'd be delighted to refer a real estate agent for you if you don't have one - a must have to triple your profit with do-it-yourself remodeling, click here.

Do What You Do Best - and - Hire Out the Rest!
