Announcing: “Abandoned Profits” for Real Estate Investors


Introducing a cache of expert training & ‘smart tools’ to help real estate investors find abandoned profits 

August 2017 (eRelease) – is thrilled to announce Abandoned Profits for real estate investors, marrying (i) a leading-edge training program showing investors exactly how to find and profit from ‘off-market hidden gems’ with (ii) exclusive, in-house ‘smart tools’ to simplify and accelerate market research, deal funding, cash buyers and more.

In 2016, the acclaimed Abandoned House Secrets training program was first released, in partnership with 17-year Florida real estate investors Sean and Tracey Flanagan—a comprehensive, step-by-step ‘blueprint’ of unique tactics and strategies for systematically taking down high-profit abandoned properties. Their full clever-yet-simple system was carefully detailed and shared with real estate investors interested in learning how to duplicate their business and tap into abandoned properties as a consistent source of profits.

To further amplify this remarkable training, it's now being offered in rare combination with a series of innovative ‘smart tools’ to help people quickly solve many of the most common problems associated with actively buying and selling abandoned properties, including:

  1. How do I find the best target markets to focus on? (locally or nationally)
  2. How do I quickly find cash buyers for abandoned properties I want to quick-flip?
  3. How do I find private lenders (or hard money lenders) for abandoned houses I want to close on?

Insight on Abandoned Profits for Real Estate Investors

Here's a short video we made, with a close look at exactly how we've leveled-up this training, any how it aptly handles these problems on abandoned profits for real estate investors…

Video Transcription:

Hey, what's up guys? JP Moses here with Awesome REI and I am super pumped to make an exciting announcement today, a cache of, as you can see, expert training and smart tools to help real estate investors like you find abandoned properties. And in a rare combination to help people quickly solve many of the common problems associated with an active business buying and selling of abandoned houses.

Problems like, how do I find the best target markets to focus on, on a local or national level? How do I quickly find cash buyers for these abandoned properties? If I want to quickly flip them, how do I find private lenders or hard money lenders for these abandoned houses if I really want to close on them.

So, before I get there, let me back up and give you the quick story in a nutshell.

Okay, so what you're looking at here is a press release that we just put out on Awesome REI talking about it. But in a nutshell way back in 2016, we released the highly acclaimed Abandoned House Secrets training program and that was in partnership with 17-year Florida real estate investors, Sean and Tracey Flanagan, maybe you've heard of them.

These guys put together a comprehensive step by step blueprint, with me along for the ride. It’s basically the unique tactics and strategies that they use to systematically take down these high profit abandoned properties that they do so well.

Who the heck is Sean Flanagan?

Well, he's a Florida investor. As I said, the guy's bought and sold nearly 400 properties now—probably more than that. He's wholesaled houses. He's fixed and flipped houses, bought property, subject to, ran expensive Yucky House “I buy houses” TV ad campaigns…

And he's just been through the ringer—meaning he's been there, ups and downs of a longtime real estate investor.

Today these guys sock around $40,000 a month, last time I heard from them and they work very part time at this. That affords them, as you might imagine, the lifestyle to do what they want with their family. And that's in large part to the unique tactics and strategies they use for systematically taking down these high-profit abandoned properties.

So why abandoned houses specifically? You might be wondering that. I'm glad you asked.

Realize this, of the 126 million homes in the US, over $17 million of them are empty. That means almost three out of every 20 houses in the US are just sitting there vacant. So, for every 20 homes you walk by or ride your bike past or you see driving around, three of them are potential deals. It's crazy numbers.

Sean and Tracey know what it's like to make over half a million a year working about 20 or 25 hours a week or so on these abandoned properties specifically focusing on them. That smells like a lot of opportunity to me, doesn't it to you?

That's exactly why we partnered with Sean and Tracey last year to go uncovered. They're sneaky little secrets behind this hush hush methods they use for abandoned houses and really just put a step by step training together called Abandoned House Secrets, so the original Abandoned House Secrets training program.

Here's what it is on the inside. As you can see over here on the right, there's one, two, three, four, five, six, seven modules that we were able to almost had to tie them down to a seat to get them to spill the beans on this. But really it's a full clever-yet-simple, systematic process that they have laid out here step by step.

They carefully detailed and shared with investors like you who are interested in learning how to duplicate their business and just tap into the abandoned properties as a consistent source of profits in ways that few people know how to do.

Since then, the success stories have been rolling in. We've had students tell us that they made anywhere from their first $5,000 to over $50,000 in a short a few short months. There's one person, a guy named JD in Forest Park, Georgia said he found 19 abandoned houses in only 40 minutes after going through this training. Grover from Ohio found 51 abandoned houses in an hour.

But in spite of some of the impressive stories from the peanut gallery, people doing deals over and over again, we've heard from some people who continue to struggle with some of the other, all too common related-but-different facets of this business successfully buying and selling abandoned properties. They struggled with things like, how do I find the best target market to focus on a local or national level? How do I quickly find cash buyers for my abandoned properties? How do I find private lenders or hard money lenders when I need them for the abandoned houses I want to close on?

So, you speak and we listen. I did an experiment with Sean, we decided to merge in a number of key in house real estate investor tools and resources together in this rare combination with the Abandoned House Secrets training that you can see right here, and it's called Abandoned Profits: How to Find, Fund, & Flip Abandoned Houses for Huge Profits Working Part-Time.

I'm not going to go and drill into this in too much detail, but just to kind of give you guys, I just feel like we need to let the cat out of bag just a little bit.

I'm on the dashboard of the back office as you can see here. So only members can see this. So, as you can see it includes the Abandoned House Secrets training, right? So this is this the whole thing I was just talking about that we released as of year step by step. It's their business inside out exactly how to duplicate it.

But also, membership and abandoned profits includes not just that. Oh No. It includes things like Target Market Finder. Target Market Finder is this custom built automated solution that's designed to help people like you determine how to tap into a target market or even how to find an ideal target market really fast.

It lets you quickly see hotspots in every city across the country. And it's super cool. It works in almost any market in the entire US.

Also, One Minute Leads. This is a really powerful tool that we use in house. It finds cash buyers and hard money lenders in less than a minute. You heard me right. It's on a local or national level, your choice. Private Money On Demand. Well, this is only our most highly acclaimed private money getting system. This is a simple step by step training that has really the power to transform your business and your life if you let it, and that's not an understatement. A small armada of other people have already done so and it's thanks to this. It also includes, as you can see, the infamous $1.2 million In Under 90 Minutes demo video, which is pretty darn cool.

And then the Fund and Flip System we tossed in there. These are tailored websites that you can use for private lenders and cash buyers that you can just swipe and deploy in your own real estate investing business.

These tools are designed to make it paint by numbers easy for people. You don't have to have any tech skills whatsoever.

And then a couple of tasty bonuses: A Nationwide Hard Money List, right? And this is basically an in-house nationwide list of active hard money lenders that we have already compiled. I mean this is a really cool resource. It gives you immediate access to hard money to fund deals when you need it.

Leverage & Scale Step by Step. This is everything Sean wishes that he knew when he first got started. I'll save the details on that.

And then also Private One on One Coaching Call with Sean and that's pretty hard to beat.

So that's just a quick and dirty run through. I just wanted to get the word out that Abandoned Profits is happening.

Bottom line, any real estate investors out there within the reach of my voice: If you're interested in leveling up your game by tapping into the abandoned properties opportunity in your market or any market, consider joining Sean Flanagan for an upcoming live, Abandoned House Training Webinar. No obligation. You can just tune in, let him drill deeper into his business, into the success stories, and into the nuances of some of the resources I've shared with you here and the training. In that Webinar, you can decide if this is a good fit for you and your business right now, so if you're interested and you want to find out about any upcoming Abandoned House training webinars with Sean, just head over to the press release which I started out showing you here.

You'll find it at and that will take you directly to the press release you're looking at here. And if you scroll down to the bottom of that press release, if there is an upcoming training webinar on this topic, there'll be a link there that you can click. If not, I'm sorry, you'll just have to wait till the next one is available.

All right guys, that's it. Just wanted to clue you all in on what's exciting right now at Awesome REI. This is pretty cool stuff. I've never seen anything like this. We've never done anything like this before. Now I'm excited to hear even more success stories as a result.

Thanks guys. We'll catch you there JP. Out.

Abandoned Profits Training by Sean & Tracey Flanagan

Also, here’s a short, helpful video interview with Sean and Tracey discussing their massive success with abandoned houses over the years, and their innovative, 7-module Abandoned House Secrets training…

Video Transcription:

JP: Hey guys, what's up JP Moses here with Awesome REI. Hope you're doing well. I want to pull the curtain back on something super-fast and want to let you guys know we have something really, really exciting that we have been down in the labs working on for some time now. And we are in the process of unveiling it.

It is called— drumroll—Abandoned House Secrets. And it’s unparalleled training for real estate investors in my humble opinion. And it involves these two cats over here, Sean and Tracy Flanagan. How's it going guys?

Flanagans: Great, doing good. How are you doing?

JP: Doing well. Doing well. So what I want to do here is just want kind of reveal what it is that we have been working on together for the last few months now that it's wrapped up in a nice little package and we're starting to hand it off to some people.

I want to talk about who it's ideally suited for, what makes it unique and then just basically kind of splat that in a quick video. We don't have any kind of script, so those of you who are expecting us to be super professional, don't. You guys, we've known each other for some time now, but you have a very interesting story in about two paragraphs.

Can you tell me the super-fast Readers Digest version of how and why you're involved in abandoned houses?

Flanagans: Yeah. We had a real successful wholesaling in a pretty good sized real estate business in general through 2007 and when the market crashed, we lost that. We lost just about everything. We had a lot of houses, a lot of money in the bank. We were very well what we thought was we were set up good for the future, but the market crashed we lost a lot just about everything that we had—our house and we lost money and we didn't have way to keep marketing and stuff.

Stuff wasn't working. I mean, it was working before and we had to find a new way to kind of reinvent the wheel and find something that was gonna work for us to make money in real estate, because it's what we do, and we need to figure out how to do it with little to no money.

And we did. We found abandoned houses, which were all over the place at the time. And they still are.

The trick was figuring out how to get in touch with these owners and out of necessity, we figured out how to get in touch with them and we figured out how to get all their information, basically for free. To the best of my knowledge nobody else has been able to replicate that and figure out how to do it. And especially for free, even with skip tracing, um, which doesn't always work. Now, more often than not, it doesn't work, and our way does.

JP: Now I know we don't have time to really dig into your story, but you have a really fascinating story that that goes through how, as we've discussed it, how abandoned houses presented itself to you as an opportunity that you would never even really considered much up until that point because you fell so hard. Because you were, you know, you hit bottom—you were kind of licking the bottom of the ash tray of real estate investing in life and when you get to that point.

And you go, when everything that I've ever known that has worked doesn't work anymore, what do you do? You got to change the game. You gotta to start some new rules and try something different and you guys did.

Then you went through a good bit of trial and error, but at this point you've got this thing perfected. You've got it nailed and you are killing it in abandoned houses and you're doing some things that, I mean, abandoned houses are not new. You know, you can recognize an abandoned house if you're out driving the streets. A lot of times you see an abandoned house, and some of them are not so easy to recognize and there's some, some tricks of the trade you guys have taught me there.

But what you guys have done that so special and so unique is this three-step lead magnet campaign that you have put together that is unlike anything I have seen before. It is extremely creative but also extremely simple and I love that about it. It's very low tech, but very high impact. You guys get like a 90 percent response rate from and you have, you have abandoned house sellers contacting you, you're not having to hunt them down.

Flanagans: Yeah, it's, it's pretty magical.

JP: And then there's your street blitz method, which is also just a very simple but elegant and effective way to mine for abandoned houses. Most investors who've tried this in my experience, and I've worked with a lot of investors over the years, they just don't know how to do it. They don't know. They haven't cracked the code on how to do this really, really well.

And you guys really have since I've had the chance to learn from you, we've implemented it into, into our wholesaling business here in Memphis and well, let's just say James and Chris and I have just had a conversation yesterday saying we've, we've been leaving a lot of money on the table up until now on the abandoned houses side and we have a very successful wholesaling business, we do a lot of direct mail…. to, you know, absentee owners with equity. We do probate, all that stuff works for us and we're going to continue doing that. But this has opened a whole new world to us in terms of a channel of very potent channel of leads that are really almost untapped.

You know, I mean this whole abandoned houses thing is just a series of handsome pay days waiting to happen and you guys figured out how to make that happen like clockwork and I love it.

So, what did I say when we first started talking about this? I said, guys, I know you want to keep this kind of close to the vest, but what could I do to convince you to let me help you put some training together on this so that we can teach at least some people how to duplicate what you've done and I think through some arm twisting and maybe a little passive aggressive manipulation, I was able to get you to do it.

So that's what we've been working on, right? We've, we've put together this training called Abandoned House Secrets and it is second to none in my humble opinion. This is Sean and Tracy's exact system from start to finish. No stone unturned for this channel of leads for abandoned houses. Their marketing campaign, all three lead magnets in detail and versions that you can actually use. Not, that you have to go have to reinvent that wheel on their street blitz method, how they find abandoned houses, how they find the ones that don't look abandoned, how they get the seller's reaching out to them, how they have the conversations with the sellers because the sellers themselves are unique and special from abandoned houses.

Let me just ask you guys, know that we've kind of wrapped up this thing and we're unveiling it to our colleagues out there, who would you say this is ideally suited for, this training?

Flanagans: Well, it's honestly for anybody that's interested in real estate investing. And I know that's a broad answer, but if you're a newer investor, it's a great lead source for a new investor or an experienced rehab or wholesale or whatever. You’re just going to reach so many different motivated sellers.

And the only difference is if you want to find somebody and you're a beginner, and you don't have quite as much money and you can't close on these properties, or you are looking to target subject-to deals or lease offices or that sort of thing… You might have tweaked the neighborhood a little bit as opposed to what we normally target, which, you know, Tracy and I, in our renovating business we target a certain neighborhood. And if we were targeting another motivated seller that we could take over payments on their house, we might target it a little better, newer neighborhood, but…

I know it's a broad answer, but just about anybody can benefit from, from what we're doing and tapping into their, uh, into their real estate business, I think.

JP: Well, I think an important thing to spotlight is that it doesn't matter what your exit strategy is, right?

Because you guys have done it all. You've been wholesalers, you are currently mostly rehabbers. You're buy & hold investors as well. It’s kind of like the probate arena, right? It doesn't matter what types of deals you do, if you need leads, probate leads can be quality. If you know how to mine those and this the same thing with abandoned houses, it is a channel of leads.

So, I want to be real clear about the training we put together. What you need in addition to the information that's in it is the fundamental knowledge of whatever type of deal it is that you're going to do. We're not going to teach you everything you need to know about how to wholesale a house or how to rehab a house or how to do rental properties or how to do lease options or whatever it is.

We're going to show you how to extract everything you can out of this niche channel of leads and exploit it to its fullest potential. And that's what you guys have done marvelously in this training.

Tracy, what do you think makes this training itself different? I mean, you guys are like me,16 years in the game, you guys have been through a lot of stuff. You've been through a lot of courses and you know, books and seminars and stuff and I have too. So what would you say makes this unique and stand out from other stuff that we've been exposed to?

Tracy: I would have to say the most unique thing is you're able to advertise for almost nothing. Not only is it super easy, but it's almost free and I think that's what I like the most.

Sean: Yeah, almost free you're talking about 10 cents or so to get a prospect, give or take a penny.

It is very low barrier of entry. So, for those who have money to spend on marketing in our business—and we do spend a lot of money on marketing—but this is among the lowest that we have to budget for because of that fact.

JP: So very cool guys, I just want to put this out there. I just wanted to introduce you to Sean and Tracey, if you're not familiar with them, and let you know that we put this together. Abandoned House Secrets training for real estate investors. It's available right now. If you're interested, we have a press release on our website. You can go check out. Just go to Okay. You can see the press release for the launch of this training and a little bit more information. You can see if it's something that's a good fit for you in your real estate endeavors, wherever you are right now.

It's a good fit for me. We've implemented it and some of my colleagues as well who've lead in on this. We've got a few people, at the time we're recording this right now, we got a few people here and they're kind of getting their feet wet and the feedback has been amazing.

Have you guys been reading that? What people have been saying is they've been in there.

Flanagans: Yeah, it's very cool.

JP: It's very cool. It's all online by the way. So there's no like, big box of books and tapes and stuff that you're going to get. If this is a training that's a good fit for you, it's online education right there at your fingertips. So go check it out. Sean, Tracy, thank you guys. Appreciate you.
