279: Making $71K on ONE DEAL After 5 Failed House Flips and Six-Figure Debt w/JP Desmet and Aaron Bihl
Feel like you’ve already made a few blunders to kick off your real estate investing journey? Well, you’re in great company. Most real estate rookies make their fair share of investing mistakes right before they figure things out and go on to build successful investing careers. Today’s guests are living proof of this.
After a series of failed house flips (including one that involved his family home!) put him behind the eight ball, JP Desmet’s real estate career was almost over before it had even begun. As with all great success stories, however, his next step was his most important one—he asked for help! After reaching out to seasoned real estate pro Aaron Bihl about a potential investing opportunity, JP was able to make a serious profit off his very next deal and ultimately turn around his real estate fortunes.
JP’s story is one of pure grit and mental fortitude. Rather than throwing away his dreams of real estate investing, his willingness to not only fail but also learn from his mistakes allowed him to bounce back in no time. If you’re a fellow real estate rookie, you won’t want to miss JP and Aaron talk about their first house flip fails, how hiring a bad contractor can quickly derail a project, and how working with a mentor can turn your very next deal into a huge success!
