New to Storage Auctions? / Re: How much money do you bring?

You all bring up some interesting points.  I think Iíll keep it around a few hundred dollars.  That sounds like a good place to start.  I really donít know what Iím doing anyway.  I donít want to spend too much and lose it all.

Most of them are real buyers, although some were obviously cast for their looks or comedic value. I've met Dan & Laura Dotson (in Vegas), Bubba Smith (at a local auction), Lisa Lewis & the producers of SW Texas (at a taping.) I spent about an hour on the phone interviewing Dave Hester. Mike Braiotta is member of this forum. It's a small world.

It really is a small world.  You really have met and talked to quite a few of them.  Did you ask them for any tips or tricks?  If so, what did they tell you?

Marcus, welcome to the forum. We'll be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you for the warm welcome.  Iíve been asking a lot of questions.  I hope your members donít get frustrated with me.  Iíve never done anything like this before.  Itís a brand new world to me.

I imagine that itís a lot of work trying to find people to buy the stuff.  That is unless youíre lucky and get some really good stuff.  The good stuff probably sells real fast.

I will keep that in mind if I ever get around to doing this.  It seems those guys on TV have stacks of at least 10k or more in cash.

It doesn't take much to get started in this business. You could easily triple your money on an average unit.

Iíd love to be able to triple my money.  That would be like a dream come true.  I'm already thinking of what beach I will be on for vacation.

Selling Venues / Where can I sell my stuff at?

Letís say that I win my first auction.  Where do I sell the stuff at then?  I have no idea what to do with the stuff that I win at an auction.

I see on TV those guys have huge wads of cash.   How much money do you guys take to auctions?  Can you go to an ATM or must you have all that cash?

Are they real at all?  I keep getting the feeling they are fake.  Do people really bid like that at them?  I mean, the people there bid a lot of money on the stuff.  I want to give this a try.  But, I donít think I can afford it.

I like that show a lot.  Have you ever met anyone from that show?  If so, was it at a storage auction?  Do those people always hang out at storage auctions or is it all Hollywood made for TV?

Iím still not sure if this is for me.  I see on TV you guys find all kinds of stuff.  Is it really like that?  Iíd like to find some stuff that was worth a lot of money.

New to Storage Auctions? / How much money do you guys make?

Iím talking on average.  How much do you guys make per year buying storage units?  I see on TV that some of those guys look pretty rich.  I want in on some of that.

I just wanted to stop by and say hello.  Iím totally new to buying storage units.  I have no idea even where to begin.  I hope you all can give me some pointers on how I can get started.
