Episode #278 Never Revealed Before Today – Savvy Creative Real Estate Deal Structuring!



Even though I rant on, and on, and on about finding “motivated-sellers” all the time. Plus preach, if you talk to enough new sellers, sooner or later you will find a seller that doesn’t say “NO” to anything you want to do! The deal will eventually elevate to having some sort of deal structuring, and having spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours doing seminars and teaching how I do this, today is different … in this podcast I am going to strip down exactly what is going threw my mind while looking at a deal, and trying to structure it so everyone involved wins! And, believe it or not, one of my coaching students brought it to light. So I decided to do this podcast on the simple way that I look at deals, and spit out offers like Henry Ford’s assembly line back in the day. In fact, if this one podcast doesn’t hit you in the forehead like a slug hammer, I may have to give up my teaching career. Only because I don’t believe I can make it any simpler for you. So let’s dig in …

Episode #277 Legal Creative Real Estate Escape Clauses To Use On Deals!



“Weasel Clauses” or “Contingency Clauses” in real estate have had entire mounds of books written about how to escape a transaction as soon as you feel it is uncomfortable. Which means these carefully worded paragraphs allow you to void contracts at the drop of a hat. While all of this is really clever, and considered customary. Here’s what I do … NOTHING!!! That’s right, I use none of it. Only because I have found this type of language just KILLS deals! While other buyers are using their “weasel clauses” I have my own special ways of protecting myself so if I don’t want a deal, I can get out of it. But I do it without the Seller ever getting spooked. In fact, once they see what I have done, they very often are glad and relived all at the same time! I know this sounds dangerous, but once you listen to this single podcast … your chest will puff up. And you will start making offers like you are a super-hero. Without fear, anxiety, and even sleepless night’s.

Episode #276 Extraordinary Development To Unlock Creative Real Estate Deals!



During every negotiation with real estate Seller’s, you always have this gnawing question of: “Is the seller going to sell to me?” Or, and this is incorrect, you think: “What can I do to convince this Seller to do this deal?” Maybe you are like me (Bill), and think: “Are they ready to sell to me yet?” Well, in today’s unexpected podcast, we are going to take the guessing game out of this process. This extraordinary development will soon be the creative real estate industry standard for making deals. You will be the first to hear it and use it. I totally expect this to take much of the exhausting, and stress out of finding and closing deals from now on! No matter the Seller’s situation, these four conditions exist, and once you figure them out … the deal either opens up like the flood gates, or you simply move on without wasting time and resources. In other words: It’s how you quickly get to the Seller’s distinct need & want, evaluate if you can produce what is needed & wanted, then move forward, or bail out. It truly is incredible. So take notes …

Episode #275 Zero Down Rookie Creative Real Estate Deals To Study!



What if I told you today you can make quantum leaps, or minimally giant steps with real estate investing, by listening to this one podcast? You would probably think I am like all the rest … hyping you, maybe exaggerating, and not telling you the whole truth, right? This is one of my biggest barriers in my life. Getting others to understand the mind-set that assumes success comes one small step at a time is wrong and unfortunately a huge misconception, especially in real estate investing. And is clearly reflected in the way most people function and got through finding sellers to close creative real estate deals. More important … if you don’t do what we talk about in this one and only novel podcast, quite frankly … you will work harder and harder, and hold yourself against the success you so desire. This is what I call “success-erosion.” Which is really you working against your own beliefs and opinions, instead of just “DOING” what other accomplished folks have done to get to the top. Let’s get into this, so you can move rapidly on getting your check and freedom too …

Episode #274 7-Key Ingredients To Keep You From Losing Money In A Down Economy!

When everyone is running and hiding, I tend to do more business. Why? And how? … Is what this isolated podcast is all about. And, if I can do it – SO CAN YOU! One of the take-aways you should get by listening today is: There is NO bad time to get into real estate.

Episode #272 Six-Core Achievements & Influential Roles In Creative Real Estate To Be!



Believe it or not … every creative real estate entrepreneur goes through status roles, or class roles, and positions that are created by a mixture of your inner thoughts plus the environment you are in. And until now have not been identified, or classified for clarity. Which has made this ladder of success difficult for most.
