Hidden Profits in Real Estate ResearchEvery month there are over 10,000 Pre-Foreclosure Ads posted in the “Legal Organs” for the 13 Metro Atlanta Counties. The “Shadow Inventory” is estimated to be over two million properties nationwide with Georgia in the top five. Bankruptcies are at record proportions with record breaking filings in the Greater Atlanta region. There are homes in all price ranges sitting vacant. They are not for sale, they are in limbo. The average mortgage delinquency is over 20 months and not expected to get better any time soon. In other words, there are lots of motivated sellers as well as motivated lenders. Learn how to find the hidden jewels that most investors pass by not even knowing that they exist.

  • Find property owners of vacant properties
  • Locate legal descriptions of properties
  • Find out sales prices before making an offer

  • Foreclosures
  • Delinquent property taxes
  • Bankruptcy situations
  • How to find a continuing source of active real estate

YOU CANNOT WIN TODAY’S BALL GAME,
WITH YESTERDAY’S HOME RUN!

WHAT WORKED IN REAL ESTATE IN THE PAST, ISN’T WORKING NOW…
WHAT DO I DO? HELP!

How many times have you had this conversation in the past year? Almost everything we knew in real estate last year has changed immensely. Yes, it’s changing daily!!! This makes it very challenging to launch successfully in 2011… IF you are not educated! Times are financially tough, but never too tough to neglect education! Remember the saying by Derek Bok, the former president of Harvard University: “If you think education is expensive, try ignorance”

Many of us became ‘seminar junkies’ in hopes that we will become the next Donald Trump or at least better our income. Unfortunately, a seminar junkie spends thousands of dollars driving from bootcamp to bootcamp, but never really earns back the investment or fully understands how to put the education into action. After attending these seminars, we are still are afraid to get going due to the minimal education and direction provided at the seminar or due to the lack of money. Even worse, you may have found out that what you have been doing in the past isn’t working now! 2011 is one of the best years ever to invest in real estate and you can do it with “no money” and “no credit!”

What, you say? HOW???? Watch to our new live Real Estate Junkie Webcast on Tuesday, January 11th (and the first Tuesday of each month) from 7:00 PM to 8PM ET!!
