Maybe you’ve heard of a little website called Zillow?
Yes, the real estate selling, buying and data giant that makes most Realtors kinda roll their eyes, most real estate investors pretty much overlook, and most appraisers cringe as homeowners increasingly insist on using their “Zestimate” value, no matter what their dang appraisal says!
Love ‘em or don’t, Zillow’s the
800… 8,000 pound real estate gorilla on the internet that just can’t be discounted anymore.
In their mission to swallow the whole real estate world, you may have also heard rumors that Zillow is now getting into the business of actually buying and selling houses. Well, it’s a fact, and it’ll be interesting to see how that goes.
Personally I’m not so sure how that could work out well, and apparently I’m not the only one who thinks so. But that’s a whole ‘nother conversation really.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
April 2019 (eRelease) – AwesomeREI.com is thrilled to announce an incredible new real estate investing program: The Z-Code by Joe McCall. This highly effective training program teaches new and seasoned investors how to systematically harvest leads from Zillow.
In typical Joe McCall form, the entire training orbits around a comprehensive mind map with related documents and helpful checklists included. All 4 training modules are broken down into easy-to-follow videos demonstrating the entire process—from setting a solid foundation of important core values and principles, to the exact steps needed to target and find sellers, to gathering critical intel, using an Excel calculator for fast and easy ARV calculations, how to contact the sellers and how to keep track of all your work.

Hey, JP here and I want to share with you a simple ‘hack’ I discovered for bandit sign marketing you can use to boost the motivated seller leads flowing into your real estate investing business.
I call it my “Bandit Sign Sneak Attack” strategy. It’s an unorthodox approach to regular “bandit sign” marketing that really takes it to a different level.
In fact, with my little twist here, this may just turn out to be one of the better deal-getting tricks in your arsenal. Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…

Time to give stuff away again! And golly, you guys just can’t get enough, can you? 🙂
So far we’ve let you steal:
And now here we are, piles of raving comments later, and you still want more!
I totally get it… I’ve been there, and always appreciate finding an “easy button” or shortcut myself. If it’ll save me (i) time, (ii) pain or (iii) the trial-and-error of making or finding it myself, then I’m in.
Which brings me to—an interesting (and kinda hilarious) question from Tim D. I saw recently in response to one of my “Swipe & Deploy” shares. Choose whichever flavor you like… Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…
Hey guys, JP here.
We’re hearing more and more from people in stronger real estate arenas finding it tougher to find solid deals. And if you’re in a market that’s white hot, it can feel kinda like the wild west out there sometimes.
I recently got a call from Jeff in Seattle, wondering if the Property Scout Pipeline is a viable approach that can actually work in a “white hot” market like his… and if so, how?
Solid question, Jeff—super glad you asked. 🙂
In case you don’t already know… Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…
Hey guys, Sean Flanagan here.
I recently heard an interesting question about doing abandoned house deals in ‘war zone’ neighborhoods…
“I have enjoyed your training very much. I have spent six hours and found two abandoned houses in the Columbus, Ohio, area. To get more to look at, I will need to go into areas where I hear shootings and, just in general, not safe areas. I went to Springfield, Ohio, recently and found 51 abandoned homes in one hour. So much to look at, so little time. I have just started on this exciting journey.” —Grover J., OH
Well first off, three cheers for Grover! Man, I love to hear from people like you who’re moving solidly forward and making progress with abandoned house profits in your own area.
Now to Grover’s question…I do have a couple of specific thoughts I’ll share based on how I run my own real estate biz. Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…
Hi, Dolmar here. The fact is, Property Scouts (or many people call them “bird dogs”) have been one of my best secret weapons in multiple markets I’m doing deals in for years now—routinely landing me leads on property deals that aren’t on any of my competition’s radar.
They send me leads, I cherry pick the deals, and they get paid nicely for the service. It’s a beautiful arrangement.
Today I want to shine a light on 7 ways you can legally compensate them, so you can stay safely out of any legal ‘hot water’ (it burns!) that many investors find themselves ignorantly swimming in. So let’s run through them. Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…
Hey, got some exciting news to share! Anyone looking to find the awesomest, most profitable areas for your real estate deals, heads up on this. 🙂
If there’s one thing that can really make my day, it’s finding some nifty little something (a system, app or software tool) that makes my real estate operations easier and awesomer. Yeah, call me an REI-nerd, the glove definitely fits. 😎
Sometimes you just stumble on things like that, sometimes you get struck with the idea to just make it yourself.
That was me and Patrick when we first imagined Target Market Finder—a snappy, little in-house tool that would help us easily zero right in on perfect target real estate markets for our deals in no-time flat.
Once it became reality (yay!) we didn’t keep it to ourselves, but invited a few others to ‘beta test’ it with us… to play around with it, kick the tires, and help us make it better. Keep reading, you’re doing awesome…

Hello Awesome REIers…
Today is a good day – nope, scratch that – it’s a great day! Nope, wait, it’s a frickin’ awesome day! And you’re going to think so too, I’m sure of it.
Want to know why?
Well, I’ll tell you…
I have a question for you…
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.
Uh, you’re welcome, my friend!
Now this is important…
Heeeeeeeey guys, it’s time for another exciting episode of “Swipe and Deploy our stuff!” Lol.
So based on the kudos aplenty, I clearly struck a chord in recently sharing one of my favorite, top performing postcards for motivated sellers. That’s awesome, I love it.
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.
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…
Man, you guys sure love to swipe our stuff!
I mean, based on the gratitude galore we got from sharing one of our favorite motivated seller postcards recently, it seems pretty clear that the old “Swipe and Deploy” is something we should keep rolling with.
So let’s do another one…
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…
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…
