Hey everybody, our guest, Seth Williams, is here for the first time. I know you will benefit from what he has to share. Seth has one of the best blogs on the internet. No, really. Truth. He loves what he does and it shows in the excellent content he creates. Check out some of Seth’s investing numbers… his emails get a response rate of about 5%, and a sell/acceptance rate of .5 to 1% even though he offers really low prices. It's a matter of finding the right seller and quickly making an offer. Intrigued? Good…

Listen and enjoy:
