  • Where To Find The Best Deals Even With Hot Competition – Ron will show you the best tool he’s ever used to absolutely ensure you never struggle to find deals and it only costs pennies to implement.
  • Where To Get The Money To Buy Bank-Owned Deals– Since banks require cash to purchase their properties, Ron will show you where to get the cash to buy bank-owned homes that won’t come from other banks or require credit or qualification.
  • Purchasing a Beautiful New Home for Your Family – Ron will show you how you can purchase a new home for your family in the next 45 days and never fill out an application, apply for a loan, or put up a down payment.

Meeting-Before-The-Meeting at Total Wine & More Perimeter
Foreclosure & Short Sale Group
with Bob Massey

Bob MasseyOn January 7th at 3 PM, Bob Massey will be having his quarterly meeting at Total Wine & More located at 124 Perimeter Center W (see map). Bob will be giving a presentation you don’t want to miss! He is going to be going over the details of a $875,000 short sale he just closed that most investors would have abandoned months ago. Instead of giving up, he modified his strategies and ended up making more than if everything had gone according to the original plan! He is also going to be discussing mortgage fraud, securitization issues, and foreclosures. The banks have been defrauding homeowners for years, and we now have a way to use that to fight back against the banks and do some pretty incredible deals while helping underwater homeowners across the country.

New Year’s Party After the Meeting – FREE Food!
