You probably dreamed of being a superhero when you were a kid, right? I mean who didn’t, right?
So while I’m still around waiting for some X-ray vision and maybe an invisibility cloak (admit it, you’d love these too), the current reality is that I’m still just me, JP Moses, Director of Awesome here at Awesome REI.
But here’s something cool: I may not be a superhero yet, but as an adult (most of the time) and seasoned real estate investor (now 17+ years), I know just what it takes to be a Super Investor, which is maybe, kinda the next best thing?
Have you ever driven by a burned-out house and wondered about it? Wondered how you might approach that owner, acquire the property and fix it up?
Well, you’re in the right place at the right time… because today, I’m going to share what I like to call my “burned house” letter. And not only am I going to show you the letter and explain how to use it, you get to download a copy for free.
JP Moses here, and I’ve used this letter for years quite successfully, and now it’s yours to use as well.
Has it been challenging for you to get private money for your real estate deals?
After all, it can be so easy to stumble or just freeze up altogether when you get hit in the face by their #1 question:
“Have you ever done this before? Have you done a deal?”
But wait…don’t panic! Keep reading, because I’m about to share why this simply question can so often tangle you up. And even better, I’m going to help you out by sharing exactly how I handled this question successfully back when I was “wet behind the ears” as an investor.
And let me just say – you’re not alone. Over my years in this, I’ve found that sooooooo many investors commonly have difficulty landing secure, stable private money, and especially if you’re a greenhorn newer to the game.
Hang onto your hat, because you’re about to get an inside look at how I’m able to own and run a very successful and profitable wholesaling business…with only around 10 or so hours of my time involved each week.
Yes, totally serious and totally honest.
And because of this, I get to actually enjoy my life, spend heaps of time with my family, travel frequently to amazing places and even surf to my heart’s content (I love surfing!).
But hey, if you’re already thinking, ‘Yeah right, sure, sounds too good to be true…’ let me just say that I get that. I hear ya…
I mean, even I struggled with believing anything like this was actually achievable – having an ultra successful investing business without investing an ultra amount of time. I remember so well how my first months in all this were full of doubts, frustrations and limiting (but normal) beliefs too—at first.
But thankfully, not only did I not let myself give up, but all these things actually ended up helping me discover a new and better approach to wholesaling houses—one that most investors I’ve met aren’t really dialed into yet. And, it turns out, it’s a much easier path actually—one that still makes me piles of money but with a fraction of the time and effort others have to put in.
A quick, little backstory…
In just a sec, I’m about to lay out for you my exact 3-step process for exactly why and how I’m able to enjoy a solid full-time income wholesaling houses for quick cash, with only a part time effort.
I really think it’ll help you understand even better if I kick this off with a quick snapshot of ‘my origin story’ in real estate, so you can understand how I’m not really all that special (don’t tell my wife though) and how I got to where I am today.
Then, we’ll dig into:
⇢ How wholesaling houses goes for most people ⇢ What I think is wrong with it (at least for people like me) ⇢ How I see people typically screwing it up ⇢ My exact 3-step process
And really a whole lot more. But fair warning:
This is very unconventional and may rock a few boats.
I suspect it’ll take you a few, focused minutes to really digest. But if you hang with me, I promise it’ll not only be worth your time, but you’ll probably start rethinking your own ideas on wholesaling houses should look like in your world.
Did you know that lead generation is the most important aspect of real estate investing? It’s your lifeblood. Believe it.
Did you also know that in order to have consistent, killer lead gen, you have to systematize your business?
And having a rockin’ systematized real estate investing business is how you’ll be able to scale up and grow your biz, right?
Are you wondering how the heck you do all of that?
Well, fear not, friends – my good buddy and fellow genius investor, Rob Swanson, is here to show you how to take the painful hustle out of investing by systematizing the most critical piece of your business – lead generation.
Does the very sight of these words give you the creeps?
Trusts. Entities. S-Corps…
Are you breaking out into a cold sweat right now?
I get it. Details about taxes and entities can be confusing, complex, overwhelming and downright scary. Well, good thing we’re here to swoop in and make some sense of all of this in easy-to-understand, digestible info.
And by ‘we,’ I mean attorney, accountant and strategist John Hyre.
John is the guy with all the answers, friends… and, he should know it all, with 19 years of experience as a tax attorney and accountant, plus 14 years as a real estate investor. BAM! Expert in the house.
Today I want to go a step further and let you take a gander at our exact script for calling back motivated sellers from our postcard campaigns.
Here’s the deal:
No matter what flavor investor you are or what type of deal happens to be your proverbial cup of tea, that first call with the seller is absolutely mission critical—a crucial hinge point really for your whole deal.
It also happens to be one of the most nerve-racking and precarious nuts to crack for many people. I’ve seen it literally hundreds of times now, these seller calls can be murder for some people—and I get it.
Seriously. Been there, done that… Yes, nearly a third of my life ago now, but I still remember all too well skittishly calling sellers back, feeling uncertain of what to say, which questions to ask or how to ask them, or even how to just not make it weird. Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…
Few people realize this, but your ultimate success or failure in real estate has surprisingly little to do with wielding the hottest tactics, the coolest strategies or the sweetest tools in the biz.
The truth is, it’s got almost everything to do with that 6 inches of real estate between your ears–i.e. your Mindset. Yep, it’s those core values, guiding beliefs and personal habits you are (or aren’t) cultivating in your life–your Inner Game–that at the end of the day, will either make or flat out break you in your real estate endeavors.
Today I want to shine the light on five things that will absolutely kill your success to death if you let them. All five have in common…
An all-too familiar tune: Chances are this’ll hit home for you somewhere, on account of it’s five of the most notorious and flagrant offenders that have been stupefying the progress and prosperity of smart, big-dreaming, hardworking folks like you and me since always and forever. I’ve seen it happen literally hundreds of times now firsthand. Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…
Hey, so if you have a finger (or two) in the proverbial pie of wholesaling houses for quick cash, then you’ll really enjoy and appreciate this.
Here’s the deal in a nutshell:
Just by being ‘out there’ in the arena, we tend to get a wide and steady stream of awesome questions coming our way all the time. And as you might imagine, these questions can run the gamut of just about every facet of real estate investing you can think of.
But it’s probably no big surprise to hear that, hands down, we get more questions about wholesaling houses than anything else – by a wide margin actually.
And sure, we do our best to help out by answering as many questions at we can. But at the end of the day there’s only so many hours and only so much we can do fielding questions one-to-one.
Which is precisely why we were struck recently with the idea of hosting a live, ‘anything-goes’ webcast for some frank back-and-forth on the topic, and invited as many people as possible along for the ride. Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…
Today’s handy-dandy resource is one of the core essentials every investor should have in your tool-belt–the Option to Purchase Agreement, or “option contract” as it’s often called.
But I gots to tell ya — just having this form in your bag of tricks isn’t enough… You’ve got to understand it’s purpose and how to effectively wield it. Which is exactly why I made you this little video about it. Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…
A great deal of people who set out to build a lucrative, thriving real estate investing business… never actually end up accomplishing it.
Me: You heard me.
Not trying to be Debbie Downer here, but in spite of the opportunity aplenty the real estate game has to offer, there’s a rather large number of folks who make an earnest go of it, only to end up failing pretty hard at the end of the day.
So but… Why?!
I mean, if REI offers this rich path for financial freedom and personal awesomeness (and yes, it sure the heck does), then why the flip would so many of us struggle so hard and fizzle so frequently?
“Long ago, I realized that success leaves clues, and that people who produce outstanding results do specific things to create those results. I believed that if I precisely duplicated the actions of others, I could reproduce the same quality of results that they had.” –Tony Robbins
Re-read that if you need to. It’s pretty profound really.
And after 16+ years in the real estate game and personally knowing hundreds of investors now, I can attest that it’s just as true for real estate investors as anyone else….
Success leaves clues.
What’s more–and most people don’t realize this–but there’s actually a surprisingly specific path that pretty much everyone who makes it big in this game ends up walking–kind of an ‘essential life cycle’ for successful real estate investors. Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…
I mean, why are you even in real estate investing in the first place? What first sparked your interest and made you decide to choose this path versus some other one? What is it that motivates you to keep going?
Or even better question: When things get super discouraging, or frustrating, or weird, or bone-crunchingly hard, what is it that gets you back on track and keeps you focused and pressing on? What keeps you getting out of bed early with excitement and passionately awake inspired at night?
Maybe you’ve already faced something that’s sent you reeling or sucker punched you and sent you flying off the tracks entirely, like…
⇾ Overwhelm or info overload ⇾ Bright shiny objects yanking you all over the place ⇾ Fear of making big, expensive, painful mistakes ⇾ ‘Negative Nancies’ or other challenging people in your life ⇾ Confusion about the right direction or next steps to take ⇾ Money wasted with no results, or even deals gone bad ⇾ Disillusionment, distraction, despair or other head junk
The fact of the matter is, this stuff is pretty typical in the life span of most investors… but it’s also a merciless dream killer… or an outright death dealer for far too many of us.
But here’s the really great news: When crap happens like this, there’s one potent thing that’ll let you tap reserves of energy, focus, determination and courage you didn’t even know you had, when you need them the most.
Hey guys, I’ve got something pretty sweet I want to share with you today: It’s one of our favorite real estate investor postcards, and you can officially swipe-and-deploy in your own real estate investing operations any time you want.
So here’s the deal…
As any capable, card-carrying real estate investor who’s actively doing deals will tell you, the only fuel that keeps your real estate money machine cranking is quality leads coming in like clockwork.
For wholesalers like me, that means a steady stream of motivated sellers with properties they sorely need to sell, plus ravenous cash buyers, hungry to devour the deals we serve up on a silver platter. For fix-and-flippers, it’s distressed property leads and retail buyers. And landlords of course need solid investment properties and quality tenants.
The list goes on… but regardless of your real estate flavor of choice, it’s pretty clear-cut: leads are the lifeblood of your business, and one way or another it all seems to start with the distressed seller. Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…
