I hate to say it, but the response here can sometimes be a bit abrupt if the collective (or the individual) senses that the original poster has not done “their homework” so to speak. I can only speculate as to the reasons why, but I will posit that it is because those who have “earned” a deal have a feeling of ownership of it (myself included deep down). But, IMO only, although this isn’t a site to “post deals” per se, that is the point that what is trying to be achieved, and I think the site owners realize this (take a look at the new “Deal Huntr” section), as well as the plethora of broker posts which demonstrate as such.
So, although the same questions do tend to get asked over and over, I think as a community we can be better at responding differently. The site will grow faster that way for sure.
But, there is a catch with all of this (and I think this is why some responses may seem terse). If this type of thinking becomes too mainstream, then the concept doesn’t work. At the core of this is the premise that LH’ed deals are only possible because only a few people know how to do it. The other 99% are paying the way for us. So, I think that at some level we all don’t want others to “catch on”.
Just my 2 cents…In my case, if I can help with something ask away.
