ABLE Mentoring

From the Desk of Scott Ulmer…

Scott UlmerWe will be back in Atlanta on December 5th & 6th for our 2 Day ABLE Mentoring Crash Course at the Atlanta REIA Office located at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, in Buford, GA. During those 2-days, we will train you on how to implement our ABLE strategy immediately, and show you how you too can make a minimum of $10,000 for every deal you do. I have two passions outside of my family and religion… Perfecting the ABLE exit strategy, and seeing others succeed using the ABLE system. My team and I are going to give you 110% during these two days!

You will also receive the following:

  • Access to 100% of our Real-Time Marketing.
  • Live Breakout Sessions Where We Will Call Your Leads.
  • Flow Charts Laying Out The Process.
  • Several Real Deal Examples.
  • Common Seller Objections and Rebuttals.
  • And Much, Much More!

We are offering all of this for NOT $1995, NOT $995… Just $197 for Atlanta REIA Gold Members, $297 for Silver Members and $497 for Non-Members. Based on your Minimum Payday of $10,000, the ROI on this training can be hugely significant. You simply cannot find a more applicable and sound investment strategy in today’s real estate investing world. Banking restrictions are more stringent than ever, and believe it or not, the FDIC is getting ready to raise rates. Even more reason “non-traditional” sales, for both buyers and sellers alike, are becoming the wave of the future when it comes to transacting residential real estate. The timing for this training could not be any better.

We feel So Strongly about you chances for success that we are willing to offer you a 100% money-back guarantee. If after the 1st day you don’t feel you can make a substantial amount of money and a substantial ROI (potentially 20 to 1 on your first deal), we will refund your money, no questions asked.

For those rehabbers and flippers this same strategy can apply to your current investment properties. We will show you how you can DOUBLE and sometimes even TRIPLE your profits utilizing ABLE’s back-end system. We put together a video detailing how you can recognize the full value of this exit strategy in your own personal investments.

See this short video with Scott detailing how he can nearly triple his profits on a typical fix and flip deal:

Elevate Your Success!

This is a genuine opportunity to enhance your financial life, increase your success and increase your business. Spend two information-packed days learning some of today’s best techniques and approaches with the market transformers who pioneered this investing strategy, and hear how they broke through complexity, constraints and constrictions to achieve greater abundance, freedom and success.

You owe it to yourself to be here, to learn this strategy. This is a tremendous value and can be a tremendous addition to your existing real estate portfolio. Regardless of all of the “white noise” out there and all of the latest and greatest investing strategies, this program, its details and merits, and ability to generate a payday immediately exist nowhere else.

Register Now!

We are excited to see you all again on December 5th & 6th at the Atlanta REIA Office located at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, in Buford, GA. Please reserve your seat asap. Seats are limited and are on a first come first served basis.

Ed BeckleyWe are excited to have one of the Great Legends of the Real Estate Seminar Investment industry, Ed Beckley, speaking at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on November 16th at 6:30PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, GA. Ed became a millionaire by the time he was 30 years old; he has written 7 books including the best seller “No Down Payment Formulas”, he appeared on television for over 10 years in his show The Millionaire Maker and has taught over 350,000 people across the country.

Scott UlmerEd has teamed up with one of the most successful real estate investors in the nation over the last ten years, Scott Ulmer, who will also be joining us at the Beginning Investors Group. Scott bought his first home when he was 14 years old, and started investing full-time right after high school. Since then he has done over 1,500 real estate transactions, specializing in non-traditional, creative, no-money, no-credit style deals.

Using his years of experience, Scott pioneered a new and innovative approach to investing in which even the novice can use to build an immediate Cash Flow of $1,000 to $10,000 or more a month using his unique Lease-Purchase program that ANYONE at ANY level can start investing in real estate in today’s market with little money and no credit with this technique coined “ABLE” (Assembling Buyer Lease Estates).

A Buyer Lease Estate is a structured agreement they create with sellers where the seller agrees to accept payments towards the purchase of their home for a predetermined price, monthly payment and time frame. They then are able to offer that home for sale to folks who can afford to buy a home but cannot walk into a bank and qualify for a traditional mortgage today.

This platform is like nothing else you’ve seen out there. You may think you know about Lease-Purchases, but you will be blown away by the systems, processes, scripts and essential details that makeup this strategy. Not to mention the fact that these deals average $10,000.00 each.

At this training, you will learn:

  • How to find and qualify leads, and put sellers under contract using their one-of-a-kind script and approach.
  • How to overcome common seller objections and rebuttals.
  • Real deal examples, walking you through from A to Z, from contract to close.
  • Examples of the fool-proof and high-response marketing techniques we use every day, and how to handle the massive response.
  • How They Earn A Minimum Of $10,000 Per Deal And How You Can Too and much more!

You won’t want to miss how Scott and Ed show you how to develop immediate and massive cash flow in this new challenging real estate environment. We are looking forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Dorsie BoddifordIf the Roth IRA is the Corvette of real estate investing vehicles, then the Roth Solo 401k is the Ferrari.

Ok, so I know nothing about fancy cars. But I do know a thing or two about Solo 401ks. After setting up my own Solo 401k awhile back, I realized that there was very little out there where we as real estate investors could learn more about this unique retirement plan. After months of research and hours of consulting with some of the nation’s top custodians and lawyers, I enlisted the help of my father who has invested in real estate for over 35 years. Together, we compiled a book that I hope will serve as a valuable resource for real estate investors who are interested in strengthening their retirement accounts.

Never heard of a Solo 401k? It’s not surprising. Recent changes in the tax law have made this investment vehicle even more powerful. The Solo 401k is basically your average 401k without the huge company and all the extra employees so many of the ERISA rules do not apply. You may have heard it referred to as the Individual 401k or the Self-Employed 401k.

The Solo 401k is similar to an IRA in that you can self-direct the account into alternative investments such as real estate. There is also a Roth component of the Solo 401k where your after-tax contribution can grow tax-free. The contribution limits for the Solo 401k are much higher than those for the IRA. You may make an elective deferral of up to $18,000 ($24,000 if you are age 50 or older) per year. Your company that provides the plan can also contribute tax-deferred funds to the traditional portion of the Solo-401k for a maximum total contribution of $53,000 ($59,000 for those investors age 50 or older).
