Don DeRosaWith housing inventory at an all time low, it has become increasingly more difficult to find deals. Notice I didn’t say GOOD deals, I said deals in general. If you are homeowner, in the market to buy a house, it can be a very frustrating task. Especially when it seems everyone is bidding on the same home and willing to pay ridiculous prices. It can be even worse if you don’t have the cash to compete with buyers that do. However, this is about to change. I am about to change your life and how you look at real estate deals forever.

Fortunes are NOT made when you buy in a SELLERS market. Fortunes are made when you buy in a BUYERS market and then, sell in a Sellers market. With the number of mortgage defaults at the highest level it’s been since 2008 the writing is on the wall. As an investor you need to be prepared. Prepared to take full advantage of the upcoming chaos that is about to happen. But, in order to take advantage of this chaos you must be armed with the proper tools and the exact steps to take before it hits. That is why I have created this brand new seminar on the how to handle this foreclosure tsunami like a BOSS.

While everyone is fighting over the small pool of retail buyers there is an entire segment of homes that will need solutions to their financial problems. These homes do not fit the normal mold of a good retail sale. They may possibly be over leveraged, need repairs and are in severe financial distress, which most retail homeowners won’t want to deal with or even know how, but are ideal for the smart educated creative investors. Time to elevate your game.
