“Relationships are the Key to Unlocking Seller Financing

Seller Financing is an important tool for creating deals in today’s market. Jeff Stephens teaches us to educate owners on the value to Unlock Seller Financing Purchases.  

Share these benefits with landlords – sellers for Interest income, tax benefits and ongoing “passive income” for them (without any more toilets, tenants & property management for sellers).

 Join Jeff Stephens on Wednesday October 12th @ 5 PM a ZOOM event.

Jeff will cover, what do investors want the most? To buy more properties!

Jeff will show where most investors go wrong, and how to avoid those mistakes. Finding, winning and financing those additional purchases can be easier said than done, however, which makes Seller Financing a very compelling notion.  While many investors complain “there are no Seller Financing deals in my market,” those who have mastered this craft are buying Seller-Financed properties continuously.  In this presentation, Jeff Stephens, founder of The Thoughtful Real Estate Entrepreneur, will explain why focusing on Relationship—from lead generation all the way through closing—is the single biggest key to unlocking Seller Finance acquisitions.

Building Wealth One House at a Time in a Rapidly Changing World. Join John Schaub one of our most requested speakers on Wednesday September 14th

John Schaub

Building Wealth One House at a Time in a Rapidly Changing World

John Schaub has prospered during three recessions, four tax law changes, and interest rates ranging from 6-16% in his 35 years as a real estate investor. His 2005 best-selling book, Building Wealth One House at a Time, assisted more than 100,000 real estate enthusiasts on their way to successful invest­ing. His 2007 book, Building Wealth in a Changing Real Estate Market, is available online and in bookstores.

Join John on Wednesday September 14th @ 5 PM a ZOOM event.

John will cover:

  • Should you sell now and buy back later?
  • Are tenants worth the hassle?
  • Fix up what you have or buy more?
  • Should you have cash on hand, if so where and how much?
  • My best and worst deals

John recommends buying better, well-located houses rather than cheaper houses and other management-intensive properties. Better houses are more profitable and far less trouble. He advocates paying off debt, owning properties free and clear, and renting only to long-term, high-quality tenants.

John buys, sells and manages his own properties, and enjoys providing quality housing at fair prices for working families in his community. He teaches one Building Wealth One House at a Time seminar each year where students learn how to identify the best investment property in their town, how to buy it at below-market prices, and how to negotiate terms that guarantee a profit.

August 10th Peter teaches the content he taught in Bruce Norris boot camps!

Is your mailbox full of cards and letters, like mine?

Phone blowing up with all cash offers? How many of these clowns actually follow up with you? With me maybe 5% – 10%. What a waste of time and money. Just buy a property “at retail” and you would at least be in the Real Estate game. Sorry, I know, foul words “at retail”. Some marketing wastes time and money thrown out the window.

As a Real Estate professional start TALKING to owners. For decades it’s always been called “Dialing for Dollars”. Be PROACTIVE. Take ACTION. CREATE deals…

STOP! We are NOT groveling and begging for a deal!

Peter say’s “We are not making a cold call. We have nothing to sell. On the contrary, we are buyers looking to spend money. Ultimately we will be paying them and solving a problem”. Hence, earning money. Peter will share:

 

  • How to identify potentials to call.
  • Obtaining information about their situation.
  • Evaluate their situation with our Unique Buying Propositions (Benefits & Solutions only WE can provide)
  • Focus & prepare on where you are “driving for dollars” and “who” you are calling!
  • Creating the clarity you need to make the call with PURPOSE

People sell houses! So talking to home owners is our #1 priority.

 Stop WAITING for your phone to ring! Learn how to “CREATE” deals in this transitioning market. Some people need our skills & money.

Our #1 job is to CREATE deals and that starts with finding a property or a person in a distressed situation. Finding a property while driving for dollars creates potential. Conversing with a potential seller and converting that excitement into a conversation and then CREATING a deal. Problem solved.

The market transition that will be discussed is as important as The California Crash report was in January 2006!

 From the desk of Bruce Norris:  Uncharted Territory:  
2022 will be remembered as the year almost every asset reversed

direction and headed south HARD!

What were you thinking – doing in January of 2006?

This is where it all begins. In January of 2006, Bruce Norris wrote the California Crash report predicting the market correction in California real estate through 2010. The extensive report (over 400 pages) predicted California would see foreclosures increase by 3,000%, prices could see a 30% decline state wide, and that California would see builders and lenders go out of business. It was an even bigger decline.

 Fast forward to July 2022 in real estate, we’ve been accustomed to low interest rates, multiple offers and grandiose profits and near riskless real estate investments. That has ended.  In the next two years these charts will change the real estate investment game for years and years to come. Sales will go down by half, inventory for sale will explode in months’ supply and unemployment will go way up as will foreclosures.
 What will happen to prices? I see three scenarios playing out depending on the policies we implement in the next two years.  Every category we use to determine if peak real estate prices have been reached peaked out at 5% interest. When interest rates reached 6%, you already had the fuel for a downturn in price locked and loaded!
I want you to read this next paragraph carefully.
 Between 1974 and 1980, interest rates doubled, and prices went up 300% from $34,000 to over $105,000. During those seven years, workers’ wages doubled but they actually lost buying power due to the impact of inflation. It took seven years of all of this to land at an affordability bottom of 17%. What took seven years in the 70’s…we just accomplished in four months!    Read more:

We are entering the biggest transition in Real Estate in over a decade. Will you once again jump in as we did in 2007 – 2012 and create wealth, get off the side lines this time or just sit again?

Adrian Del Rio co-founder PCG Commercial, Inc. Shares his in-depth experience with “Multifamily Mania” in this “CHANGING” market on June 8th @ 5 pm

a zoom event @ no charge.

Followed by Friday’s June 10th “LIVE” annual members breakfast event.

Are you ready to discuss the multifamily madness in this “CHANGING “market? Ready to learn how to “CREATE” deals and build a rental portfolio! Like Bruce Norris emphasizes, let’s study the charts. Most economists and experts love to comment on how they predicted past events but will never venture to predict any future events. That’s not Adrian’s way and he’s not afraid to go against the grain as a contrarian.

Adrian is an ACTIVE value-add investor even in this “crazy” and “CHANGING” market. He’s utilizing the tools and assets at his disposal to acquire long-term cash-flowing apartments. In this episode, he’ll discuss how you can optimize the properties, equity, and skills set you own to grow in what seems to be an impossible market.

We’re going to discuss and analyze the following topics:

  • How did we arrive at current market conditions?
  • Are we in a soon to “Crash” scenario
  • How will increasing interest rates and inflation affect real estate?
  • Did we already miss a buying opportunity and where are we headed?
  • Is your analysis spreadsheet keeping you from buying?
  • Why investors may not be finding “deals”
  • Are you having difficulty finding out-of-state properties?
  • Crystal ball forecast for 2022-2023

Adrian’s Bio…

 

Adrian grew up in real estate, in fact, as a kid he used to drive around with his dad looking cleaning up construction job sites and looking at properties.  He hated driving around looking at deals, cleaning up debris at apartments dad had just renovated, or collecting rents. However, he did enjoy collecting all the coins from the laundry machines! As a kid, all he wanted to do was hang out with friends and play soccer.  Little did he know that his previous experiences would lead him into a full-time career in multifamily real estate. He’s witnessed first-hand how long-term cash-flowing real estate can exponentially transform your future. Adrian loves cash-flowing real estate!

Adrian co-founded PCG Commercial, Inc. which is a brokerage focused on selling apartments and mobile home parks throughout California.  The company was founded in 2009 in the middle of the financial crisis and has thrived ever since. Adrian has walked, inspected, and sold approximate 3,000 units of multifamily in his career. He realized that brokerage income (i.e. commissions) earns you a solid living wage however does not create long-term sustainability. Transitioning from earned income to passive income is the key to sustainable success and profits which is why his ultimate goal is to transition to 100% passive rental income.
