Merrill Chandler, CreditSense

How to Make Yourself Irresistible to Lenders

Would $1 million in unsecured, stated-income business lines of credit make your buying business easer? Learn what you need to do to get these lines (which average 3-6% interest) without collateral, tax returns, financials or income verification.

Jeff Cichocki, Green Bay WI

How to be a Successful Private Lender

Private lending can be a great, passive income strategy—unless you make loans to the wrong borrowers on the wrong properties with the wrong terms. Don’t be one of the thousands of lenders who lose some or all of their money every year to fraud, bad decisions, and just plain bad paperwork. Don’t make a loan until you’ve heard about the due diligence, safeties, and documents you need to have in place to protect your investment.

Anthony Chara

Why You Should be Buying Apartments, Not Houses

If you’re looking for major cash flow, Anthony Chara asks, “Why are you buying units one at a time, when ONE big apartment building (or a handful of smaller ones, if that’s what you prefer) could provide all you need?”

And since the “over-exuberance” in the apartment market over the last few years (and the economic turbulence we’re likely to see in the next few) are likely to lead to a LOT of bargain buying opportunities for people who are prepared to recognize and grab them, we thought it would be a good time to bring back an expert with decades of experience and deals on over 2,000 units in 14 states under his belt, to show you:

·        How if you want to buy apartment buildings, you can just buy apartment buildings, even if you’re a beginner who’s never owned a rental in your life
·        The “Four Fs” of a profitable apartment deal: how to Find it, Figure it, Fund it, and Finish it

·        How you can use other people’s money, credit, and efforts to buy and manage apartments…in fact, that’s the way it’s USUALLY done…

 

How to Grow Your Wealth with Apartment Buildings

Saturday Brunch: 4 Hour Intensive Workshop
November 14th, 11 am – 3 pm eastern time

Learn how and why people like Robert Kiyosaki have used apartments to generate massive cash flow

There are massive opportunities coming in the apartment world, the likes of which we haven’t seen in a decade.

But you won’t know how to grab them unless you understand what a deal actually looks like (and ‘deals’ you should run from), so if you’re looking to start or grow an apartment business, this is your chance to learn:

·        The key ratios pros use to decide what to pay for buildings

·        How to ‘speak the language’ when talking to brokers, owners, and money and credit partners

·        How to analyze real numbers on real buildings, so you don’t make a huge purchasing mistake, and get the wealth and cash flow you want, instead

Bring your own deals—anything you’re working on—and Anthony will evaluate them live and show you what the numbers are actually telling you.

Everyone who attends this workshop live online gets Anthony’s Quick Analysis Deal Analyzing Software free—so don’t miss it!

Jason Debono, NuView IRA

Maximizing the Opportunity of Self-Directed IRAs and the Solo QRP

Financially successful people tend to have two major things in common: one being that most of them invest in real estate, and two, most of them seek out tax-advantaged investing opportunities/vehicles to keep more of what they earn. Whether you are a new or seasoned investor, understanding how to invest in real estate (and related investments) TAX-FREE through a self-directed IRA or Solo QRP is a critical step in building true wealth. This session will provide investors of all skill levels a practical understanding of how to evaluate the different tax-advantaged self-directed IRA and Solo QRP plans available, as well as the investment opportunities and regulations they provide.

Jerry Fink, Cincinnati OH/Bradenton FL

How to Estimate Repair Costs Right

You can get away with sloppy repair estimating when the market is hot; if you go over budget, increasing prices might just save you. In a soft market, you’d better know that you’re RIGHT when you estimate costs. Jerry will share the right process for getting the right numbers BEFORE you buy.

Larry Goins

Filthy Riches: How to Stop Rehabbing, and Renting, and Make Almost-Embarrassing Returns Creating Homeowners, Instead

At this moment in history, lots of real estate entrepreneurs are experiencing major stress over 2 issues: the cost and difficulty of finding contractors who can even get to a rehab in less than 6 months, and concerns over whether it’s time to get out of the rental property business altogether.

So what if there were a way to NOT rehab houses, get rid of the management and maintenance inherent in rentals, make gobs of money, AND do your own part to solve the ‘affordable housing crisis’ in your community?

There is, and it’s the little-known (but long practiced) strategy of “Work for Equity” deals, where you sell houses you’d normally rent or rehab, to people qualified to rehab them themselves but who could never qualify for a bank loan…and you make double-digit returns on your investment by providing the financing for those buyers (don’t worry, you don’t actually have to have your OWN money to do this…he’ll explain)

Larry Goins may have done more of these deals than anyone in the U.S., and he’ll be joining us to explain:

  • Which properties, in which neighborhoods, work best for this strategy, and how he finds them
  • How to structure these deals so they’re win-win-win (for you, your buyers, and the community)
  • The math of why it’s common to get 20%+ returns on your investment—it’s not because you’re charging 20% interest!
  • What can go wrong, and what to do about it, and why it’s not that big a deal when it does

Kevin Jenkins, Noel Selewski Insurance

Kathy Kennebrook

How to Blow Up Your Pipeline with Seller Leads and Automate Your Marketing

For now, the market remains super-tight, and 99% of the great deals out there are off-market. So what’s an investor to do?

Get serious about your seller marketing, that’s what!

And no one’s more experienced in turning marketing into leads, into deals, than Kathy Kennebrook, who’s used her more-or-less hands-off system to generate 7 figures a year in cash from flips, equity and cash flow from rentals, cash buyers, and more.

She’ll share:

  • The 12 types of motivated sellers you should DEFINITELY be marketing to
  • How to reach out to them, and what to say, to get your phone ringing off the hook
  • A funny little trick that gets sellers to pre-screen THEMSELVES for motivation
  • How to automate your marketing system (because, c’mon, if you don’t, you’re not going to stick with it—and consistency is key!

Brent Kesler, The Money Multiplier

The Money Multiplier Method

The Money Multiplier teaches how money really works with a 200-year-old concept. Instead of storing your paycheck at your local bank and letting the bankers lend out your money (and make a good living off it!), learn how you can become your own banker and how to be in control of your hard-earned dollars.

The Money Multiplier is strictly educational. You determine whether you want to act with the information we provide. Brent Kesler, founder of The Money Multiplier, used this concept to pay of $984,711 of third-party debt in 39 months-without having to work any harder, change his cash flow, or take any additional risks. Brent will show you how to get all the money back for all products and services you will ever buy for you and your family, for the rest of your life.

Shaun McCloskey

The 4 Steps to Building an Insanely Profitable Real Estate Business (that You’ll Also Fall in Love With)

So much of what we learn about real estate is strategic: HOW do I [find deals, get money, manage tenants, do renovations].

And that’s all important, but if you want to build a profitable, sustainable, and FUN real estate career, it’s JUST as important to step back and ask bigger questions, like:

  • “Am I sure that I’m focusing my time and efforts on the right things?”
  • “Is the strategy I’m pursuing the right fit for me, in the long run?”
  • “Am I building a business that supports my bigger vision for my life, or one that’s going to consume all of my time and energy?”
  • “Am I loving what I’m doing, or do I do it for the money?”

Here’s a big secret that goes against the grain of what you may believe about real estate success: it’s not about who you are, or where you came from, or how hard you hustle. It’s about doing what most people don’t: thoughtfully, intentionally designing a business that fits your vision, your lifestyle, your passions, and your personality.

Shaun McCloskey has been helping some of the highest-level real estate investors and gurus in the country do exactly that for over a decade, and now he’s making a very rare association appearance to help US have a more prosperous, AND joyful, 2020. You’ll leave this meeting knowing:

  • Why goal setting alone doesn’t work. Not for ANYONE.
  • Why making business plans based on financial considerations alone is the certain death of your business
  • Why working more hours in your business probably makes you LESS productive
  • How to create a strategic game plan for your business that will ACTUALLY get you from where you are now, to where you want to be, in just 6-12 months—not years or decades, like it takes most people

Make the next few years the best of your life WHATEVER is happening ‘out there’, with the tools you need to envision and build not just the business, but the LIFE that creates the meaning, impact, fulfillment, and prosperity you’ve always dreamed of.

Dave Peters, Columbus OH

My Journey to Debt-Free Investing

Recessions can be risky times for housing providers: higher vacancies and lower rents can destroy a portfolio pretty fast. Unless, of course, you don’t have mortgages on your properties. And there’s no reason to wait 20 years until those mortgages pay off; if you’re willing to make some sacrifices and get creative now, you can do it in less than a decade. Dave Peters did, and he’ll show you exactly how.

Lee Phillips, Esq.

How to Use the Law to Make More Money—And Protect What You Have

We all know that wealthy people work hard to legally reduce their taxes and protect their assets…and that’s a big part of how they GET and STAY wealthy.

You probably ought to be doing the same thing.

Attorney Lee Phillips learned this the hard way, when a severe illness sidelined him for 3 years he nearly lost everything he had; that’s when he dedicated himself to learning everything he could about how to use the legal and tax system to keep his clients from experiencing the same thing.

No matter how much you THINK you know about ‘business structures,’ Lee’s 40 years of research and experience is going to stun you—and maybe your attorney or CPA, too.

He’ll share:

  • How to set up your business to add 15% more profit to your take-home pay
  • How to protect your properties and the equity you’re building in them from an economic or social meltdown
  • Why you need to spend some time and effort PROTECTING what you’re building, before someone, or some circumstance, threatens to take it all away from you.

Dwan Bent-Twyford

How to Help Homeowners in the Coming Foreclosure Crisis (and Make Money Doing It) with Short Sales

With nearly 7% of American homeowners and housing providers now delinquent on their mortgage notes, it’s fair to say that we’ll probably see a surge in foreclosures in 2021.

Foreclosures are tough on families, banks, communities, and the economy, and what YOU can do to prevent them is buy those houses before they actually hit the auction block, directly from the owners, giving them the opportunity to save their dignity and get some control of their unfortunate situation.

The challenge, of course, is that most pre-foreclosure sellers are underwater—they owe the bank more than the property is worth—which means you’d better get good at navigating the short sale process FAST.

To help you start that process, we’re bringing you Dwan Bent-Twyford, who’s been making money buying short sales properties for over 2 decades. She’ll kick off your journey by sharing important, experienced-based tips like:

  • How to find prospects in pre-foreclosure BEFORE anyone else does
  • How to get to the right person at the bank, so you can get a “Yes” faster
  • 5 from-the-trenches tips for dealing with difficult banks

30 Days to Cash Wholesaling Houses

Saturday Brunch: 4 Hour Intensive Workshop
November 14th, 11 am – 3 pm eastern time

No real estate summit can really be called complete until the important strategy of how to raise cash fast is covered.

That’s why we’re giving Dwan Bent-Twyford half a day to dig into the hows and whys of wholesaling, including:

  • Why being able to generate big chunks of cash on a regular basis can make the difference between a lean recession and a prosperous recession for you
  • The top 3 ways to find deals that practically none of your competitors are using
  • The most important thing you’ve probably ignored up until now: how to build the right buyer’s list for a ‘buyer’s market’

Pete Youngs

The S.W.A.T. (Secret Ways and Techniques) Method of Saving 25%-50% on Rehabs

Ever wonder whether there’s a way to complete rehabs and turnovers for less money?

If anyone would know, it’d probably be someone who’s been on both the contractor side and the investor side of the fence for over 3 decades, right?

That’s Pete Youngs. As a professional contractor, his company was so competitive that it landed the job of renovating the living quarters for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, and who as a real estate investor has used his ‘inside knowledge’ to pay a fraction of what a lot of us do to fix up properties.

He’ll share:

  • Cheap ways to get good results that your contractors already know, but you probably don’t
  • How to make sure you’re getting the best bids from your contractors
  • How to make thousands more from every rehab and turnover you do
