Episode #226: Advanced Creative Real Estate Financing Without Money!!



So many novice and new investors actually think money is the name of the game when it comes to real estate and wealth.

Episode #225 Blueprint On Making Creative Real Estate Offers For Rookies – Revealed!



Everybody has a dream, and for most it is making a better life for themselves and their families. I know I talk to a LOT of new real estate investors, and they are completely convinced real estate is the tool to give them those dreams. Unfortunately, there seems to be multiple approaches when entering the real estate arena.

However, most take months, and often years to figure this out. To the point that the dreams die, and they feel the whole real estate thing becomes out of reach for them. Today we are going to reveal some basic laws about making offers that will increase your chances of hitting your dreams 10X faster, or more?

Episode #223 Little Known Million Dollar Strategy – Land Trusts Explained!



Here is what I don’t understand: Every time you sign your name to a deed – or – a note, you’re risking everything you own to fulfill that debt? Which means the creditor’s have legal rights to chase you into your grave (if they choose to). Which is why I am doing this podcast … there is a very easy solution to this problem that is easy and you are going to LOVE! Only because it is trouble-free, yet extremely unknown by most. And anyone can do for no extra cost in each deal. This solution is the “hidden & protected” land trust, once you know and understand it will make you scratch your head and wonder why most don’t use it? Savvy investors (including politicians) use land trusts every day. Only because this powerful document offers personal and legal advantages not associated with any other kind of property ownership. But you must first play by the rules to avoid all the problems most legal beagles add to it because they just don’t understand it.

Episode #222: Using Auctions To Sell Your Lease Option Real Estate Deals Easily & Quickly!



Holding houses that don’t sell in 30, 60, 90+ days are what some beginning investors are so afraid of. So much so that they get a rare real estate investor disease called “First-Dealitous.” They are so nervous about making payments on vacant houses, getting stuck with a long term “money-pit,” dealing with long wasted hours & weekends trying to sell, or just the sheer disappointment of losing a deal and living under constant stress that they NEVER do their first deal. Just the thought of these possibilities cause many to come to a grinding halt. When all they need to do is find 3-lease purchase buyers per month with $10,000 or more down to have your own million dollar machine. So what’s the secret to finding and closing these buyers?

Podcast #221: Finding The Perfect Lease Option Tenants …



What if you could pick good tenant buyers without guessing? Just in a couple simple actions, all in the name of selling your properties fast & easy? I believe one of the hardest jobs in real estate is finding a buyer who qualifies for a bank loan. It is the Realtor’s weakest link and causes a lot of stress, frustration, and often “let-downs.” Before we go much further … let me point out it is not mandatory that you sell a house in this very rigorous unconventional way. Knowing that 81% of all real estate buyers don’t qualify for bank loans means it is not popular, or the conventional way to transact deals. In fact, you shouldn’t do this kind of retail business unless you have plenty of funds and want less returns on your investment. If you are weak at creative real estate transactions, you have no choice. We have done a lot of podcasts already on how to acquire houses using creative transactions. But, how do you sell these fast and still stay safe and get paid from buyers who can’t qualify for bank loans? In this podcast we are going to open your mind to some amazing ideas most don’t know exist, never mind implement and profit from. You are in for a treat, so let’s go …
