David Dodge is keeping the real in real estate. With every resource he has created, David makes sure to include the good, bad, and the ugly of real estate wholesaling.
“It’s not always going to go smooth,” he notes.
“You’re not going to have fun all the time. Some days are really going to suck. You are going to have to make tough decisions. You might have to fire employees that are not aligned with your goals. You might want to cry at some point. It will be hard!”
David continues, “But, the rewards of being your own boss and having your own business are better than any rewards that another boss or job can provide to you.”
With over 17 years of experience, David is passionate about helping other entrepreneurs achieve success in the industry that provided his own. David first began investing in real estate at the age of 20 while attending the University of Missouri-Columbia. From there, his career skyrocketed. Today, David and his team have wholesaled over 500 houses. Leveraging his industry expertise, David has co-authored three books and even launched a podcast, “Discount Property Investor”, where he teaches people all the ins and outs of wholesaling real estate, along with tips and tricks for marketing, landlording, and rehabbing properties.
David and his partner Mike have even created a free resource on wholesaling real estate in order to help others learn how simple and effective the business truly is. His goal? Creating value. He explains, “For most people, the biggest challenge is capital. However, I believe that capital follows value. Most people are not creating enough value with their businesses and that’s why they are always seeking more capital.”
Looking to the future, David hopes to continue educating others about the industry, while also taking his own career to new heights. His goal is to take his rental portfolio to over 150 properties in the next few years, a journey he plans to document on Instagram.
