Stress Free Abundance » REI In Your Car » 1317

My good friend Shaun McCloskey does a workshop once a year called the Business Vision Workshop. I've heard Shaun teach this stuff a million times, but it's always good to be reminded of these things and to really think about what kind of business do I want, what kind of life do I want, right? One of the coolest exercises they do in this workshop is sit down and think about what your dream day would look like. If you’re only doing what you love and money doesn't matter, what would your dream job look like?It’s an exercise in designing what you ultimately want your business and personal life to look like. Some people want to travel the world with their families; others want a fancy car and a nice house. Whatever it is, work backwards and figure out how many deals and how much money it would take to get there. You might be surprised to find out that you don’t need to hire a bunch of people or spend a lot of money on fancy software to get there. What’s Inside:—How to envision your dream life—Why your dream life might take less money and work than you think—Info on Shaun McCloskey’s workshops

I walk through all of these areas so you know how to train them properly.

How To Use Assignment Contracts To Make Money with LITTLE Risk » 1314

I was doing a coaching call recently with my land coaching clients, and some of them asked me how an assignment works on a land deal. Some people may want to do a land deal, but they're worried that they don't have the money or can't get access to the money to double close on it. Much like when we're wholesaling properties, sometimes it’s easier when you can do an assignment and then sell that contract to somebody else for a higher price. You could also assign the rights to that contract to an end buyer. Some people say in some states it's illegal, immoral, and fattening to do assignments or to do wholesaling. Maybe it is, maybe it's not. The wholesaling police are out there, and they will get you, and you'll have to pay a fine if you get caught doing something illegal, like wholesaling or assigning contracts. But every attorney that I've talked to said every contract is assignable as long as the seller and the buyer both agree to assign the contract. What’s Inside:—When an assignment might work for you.—Examples of how to put an assignment contract together.—Why you should add options to your assignment.

PROMO: What Me Do It, Then Let Me Watch You Do It

I’m in the Business Vision Workshop right now and I want to talk about something real quick. My dad was a janitor growing up but he had this incredible entrepreneurial streak – obviously, I took after him. He owned his own janitorial services business and whenever he would hire people, he has this 2-step formula for training people.—Step 1: They would just watch him do the work—Step 2: He would watch them do the workAnd then they would be on their own. But they would learn the tricks to being more efficient to do the work. I love that analogy of watching somebody do it and have them watch you do it. And in terms of real estate, I teach and coach people how to do deals and the most effective way I’ve found is have people watch me go into a market, do the research of a county, pull up a list of sellers, put a marketing plan in place, do some cold calling and make offers.I have this program called the Inner Circle. There’s nothing like this program out there and here, it’s all about me watching YOU do all the stuff. You will be getting my support, coaching, resources, software, lead – and even MY MONEY! You will get my workshop bundle that includes all of my previous life marketing masterclass recordings, my brand-new land fast start masterclass, my coaching and funding on your deals if you JOIN THE INNER CIRCLE.

Cheap & Effective Marketing Methods for Real Estate Investing! » 1313

PPC (pay per click) and Facebook ads generate good, high-quality leads, but the problem is that they’re expensive. When you're just getting started, you probably don’t have the money to spend on that kind of marketing. The good news is there are other alternatives that you could do that can still get you leads. My favorite form of marketing has always been direct mail. It always works, and it always will work. Why? Because we can choose who were marketing to. Here, I dive into how you can make direct mail work for you and how to handle the leads that come in. It’s a lot of work at first, but once you get the momentum going, you can eventually hire out VAs to handle a lot of stuff for you.What’s Inside:—Alternatives to expensive marketing methods—Why I love direct mail—How to make a direct mail strategy work for you

Double Your Wholesale Deals At No Cost To You! » 1312

I've done a lot of deals over the years. Almost every deal, if not every single deal that I've ever done, I've always partnered with somebody else. If you don’t have a ton of money to invest in marketing or you don’t have enough time, partnering with someone else who has those things and splitting the deal makes all the difference. And you don’t need to make them a formal business partner, you can simply do it on a deal-by-deal basis.When you can partner with other people, you make more money. You can do more deals and you can make more money faster than you could doing it on your own. Isn't that amazing? I love that. I want to challenge you to think bigger. Don’t think that you have to do it all yourself. Find others who can help you fill in the gaps and watch your business skyrocket.What’s Inside:—Why you should partner with others on deals—How partnering on deals helped me grow my business—Different ways to partner with people to close more deals

Direct Mail Strategies that CONVERT in 2024! » 1311

We’re back with another segment of my Do or Die series with Jared and Foster. If you’ve been keeping up with us so far, you know it's been exciting. Foster has been working really hard on the leads that they're getting, and they're doing very well with their direct mail strategy with postcards. We're averaging a little less than 1% response rate, which should go up soon because Foster will soon be leaving his day job to flip land full time! Those first months in your real estate business are always the hardest and it can feel like you’re plowing through concrete. It takes time to build up that momentum and the more marketing you do, the more leads you’ll get, and the more deals you’ll do. Consistency is the key, so whatever you do, don’t give up. What’s Inside:—How Jared and Foster are doing with direct mail—How to use FreedomSoft to put together offers—Tips to help Jared and Foster work through a complicated deal

The Secret To MAKING OFFERS in Real Estate Investing! » 1305

It’s really important to understand the importance of making offers. If you can get into the habit of making 1 or 2 offers a day, I’m telling you guys, you will do deals. It's as simple as that. It's not a complicated business. It doesn't matter if you're doing commercial apartments, multifamily houses, land, whatever. If you want to do more deals, make more offers. If you’re not making somebody mad by noon, you’re not talking to enough people. When you're following up with sellers, you're following up with previous offers. That's where the deals come from. At first, you may not feel like you’re making a lot of progress, but don’t get discouraged. If you’re making one to two offers every day, it eventually adds up. Getting one out of every 30 to 50 offers accepted is great, and you’ll start building momentum. What’s Inside:—Why you need to make 1-2 offers per day—How to build momentum and do more deals—Why you’re not in this business to make friends

Surviving a 520K Tax Bill & Investing in Land with Bad Credit! » 1304

It doesn't matter how bad your credit is, you can still do deals. I did a lot of deals, even with bad credit. Three years ago, I had a huge tax lien, a federal tax lien of $520,000 on my house, on everything we owned. The IRS was threatening to send me to jail if I didn't pay this thing off. Basically, what happened was I started doing a lot of deals, I started making a lot of money, and I wasn't setting aside any money for taxes. I kept on paying off my old taxes without paying my new taxes. I kept on digging myself in a bigger, bigger hole. There’s this book called Profit First, and I read it cover to cover. Then I hired a full-time bookkeeper and operations manager for my business. We implemented the Profit First method and after some time, we turned the ship around. The point of the story is to not make the same mistakes I did. Hire a bookkeeper if you need the help and read the book Profit First. If you’ve made mistakes, don’t hide your head in the sand.

Land Investing for Beginners! Your Land Flipping GAME PLAN for 2024! » 1302

One of the things I'm always telling my clients and my friends to do when they want to get started in real estate is to stop asking “what if” questions and start asking “what next” questions. Big, big difference between the two. It’s easy to get stuck in what-ifs, like what if the seller gets mad at my offer? What if I offer too much, the seller accepts my offer, and then I get it under contract, and I'm trying to sell it, and I can't sell it because I've offered too much? What if I can't get the money to buy the house or the vacant lot?  You could go down a hundred different directions and get really discouraged really quickly. If you wait until all your I’s are dotted and all your T’s are crossed before you take any action, guess what? You're never going to get anywhere. I always tell my clients to stop worrying about the what-ifs and just focus on what’s next.

How I Got Started Flipping Vacant Land! » 1301

Here, I want to share with you the story of how I got myself into the real estate business. Hopefully, it’ll inspire you as you head out on your own journey. I've done all kinds of crazy deals, everything from traditional to creative financing with subject-twos and lease options.

The market is always shifting, but wealth never disappears.Right now, in my opinion, we're in a time where vacant land is the easiest way to make money in real estate. And hopefully, it’ll be that way for a long time. Regardless of what happens, it’s important to stay educated and be a lifelong student.

Automated Wholesaling! How I made $36,000 While Playing GOLF?! » 1300

Would you like to learn how to do deals while golfing? Here, I’ll show you how to do it. A few months ago, we were out hitting some balls, and I got a text from my acquisitions manager saying that we just made $36K on a flipped vacant lot deal. We never went to see it and barely talked to the seller. We worked with a realtor and got this: it was listed for $340,000, we got it under contract for $215,000, and then we sold it for $280,000. After all our closing costs, taxes, and other stuff, we netted $36,000 on this vacant land deal that we didn't buy; we just assigned the deal. We used a realtor out in another state, and we didn't use any of our own money. You’ve heard me say before that the keys to success in this business are three things: marketing, automation, and delegation. That’s how you can do deals while golfing, and I’ll share with you some of the best tips to make things happen.What’s Inside:—How we did a recent deal by partnering with a realtor.—Why marketing, automation, and delegation are the keys to success in real estate.—How to set up the right systems to do more deals.

5 Mistakes When Making Offers on Vacant Land You MUST Avoid! » 1299

I want to share with you the five biggest mistakes to avoid whenever you're making offers or buying vacant land. If you ignore these mistakes, you're going to be ignoring them to your peril because they’re really critical. You have to understand what makes a good deal a good deal and what makes a bad one bad. I talk about why it’s important to know who is on the title, which is a big deal with land, and how to clear things up.I also get into terrain and why you need to know how much of the land is usable and whether or not there’s good access. You don’t always have to visit a property yourself to get this information, and I’ll show you how. I walk through why you need to know if the taxes are current on the property and if there’s an HOA with restrictions.

Close More Vacant Land Deals with THIS Seller Script! » 1298

Here, I’m covering how to talk to sellers, and specifically, realtors. Sales is a million-dollar skill. If you're not on this phone, you're not making money. When we do marketing, the lead comes into a voicemail. We send an offer. We're averaging about one out of every 25 offers accepted for every deal—one offer accepted for every 25 offers that we send when we don't talk to the sellers first. However, when we do talk to the sellers first, we're averaging one out of ten. You're always going to do much, much better when you can talk to the sellers first because you build some rapport and they get to know you. The key to success is to talk to five sellers a day. If you make offers to at least three of them, you're going to do deals. I just launched a brand-new program called Deals with Joe. It’s seven bucks a month, and in there I talk about how to wholesale houses. It's a little different than vacant land, but basically what I'm doing is going through a 30-day program teaching you how to wholesale a house, and you can use a lot of those same principles for land. Check it out by heading to the link below.What’s Inside:—A script for how to talk to sellers and realtors.—How to ask the right questions and make an offer.—What to say when a seller is on the fence.

How to Sell Vacant Land Deals in Two Weeks or Less » 1296

Would you like to learn how to sell your vacant lot in two weeks or less? I'm going to show you how to do that here. I've been doing houses for years and years, but the last 3 or 4 years I've been doing more vacant land flips. And I love it for one simple reason: it’s easier. It's so simple that my kids could do it with me. Another reason why I love vacant land is because there is not as much competition. There aren't as many investors trying to chase these sellers. When you do find a motivated seller, they're more likely to want to sell quicker. If you go to, you get the free resources that I've given to you. It's my land flipper tool kit. These are the same tools that my sons and I used and made over $150,000. You get the contracts, the scripts, the direct mail piece, the checklists, and the software that we use to evaluate, analyze our deals and come up with offers.What’s Inside:—Top reasons why flipping land is easier than houses.—Why you need to work with realtors on vacant land deals.—Marketing strategies to pull in solid leads.

Why Flipping Land Beats Flipping Houses Every Time! » 1295

You know what? It's time to stop flipping houses and it's time to start flipping dirt, baby. I believe land beats houses every single time and I'm going to show you why here. Now, I may be wrong, and you can make an argument for why houses are better, but I'm telling you, from my experience, from my years of doing deals, teaching people, helping people to do deals, I love vacant land for one simple reason: it's just easier. It's a faster way to do deals. I've taught a lot of things and have done a lot of different deals, but I have never seen more student success stories and testimonials since I've switched to vacant land.

Go from a Deal Business to a Business That Does Deals » 1292

I was just listening to my buddy Jerry Norton on YouTube, and he said something so profound. He said your goal shouldn't be to learn how to do your first deal. The goal isn't to do a deal and make some money. The goal is to build a business that does deals and makes some money along the way. Sometimes, we're aiming too low. We need to aim higher.Learning how to do your first deal is important, but after you get it done, then what? You know, many times doing that first deal is just kind of getting you back to square one. Instead of a goal to do a deal every month or one deal a week, why not think bigger in terms of building a business that can produce income and do deals for you? It’s a huge difference. What’s Inside:—How to think bigger in your real estate business—How using VAs can help you scale—How to shift your mindset to set bigger goals

Revenue in First Position » REI In Your Car » 1281

Something I learned from my good friend Tom Krol is the principle of putting revenue first in your real estate business. Whether you flip land or houses, coach, or sell widgets, you always have to put revenue in the first position. So what does that look like? Well, it can mean a lot of different things, and I get into them here. It could be as simple as making a list of the most important things to do each day and getting them done. I also talk about revenue-generating activities and why you should make them your priority. Remember, if you’re not talking to sellers or making offers, you’re not bringing in revenue. Make sure those activities are on your list. Once you put revenue first, you can start making money hand over fist. Your business will start growing, and you’ll have tremendous breakthroughs. What’s Inside:—Why you need to put revenue in the first position in your business—The revenue-generating activities you need to prioritize—Info on my new program, Deals With Joe

Stop Chasing Sellers » 1280

One of my students recently sent a seller an offer, and the seller came back with a couple of concerns. The first one was over the limited power of attorney and the right to list the property on the MLS. It was going back and forth over email, so my advice was to get on the phone to clear things up. The other concern was over clauses in the contract giving the seller the right to terminate. The first thing I told my student was that all these signals indicate that you’re dealing with an unmotivated seller. If a seller isn’t motivated, it’s probably not a good fit for either party.Here, I cover the details of how we handled the situation, so you know how to handle it when it comes up in your own business. Talk to five sellers a day, and you’ll get better at this with practice. Remember, you can only do deals with motivated sellers. Be willing to go for no and walk away from those who aren’t ready to do the deal today. It sounds like reverse psychology, but it’ll help you do more deals.What’s Inside:—Why you shouldn’t work with unmotivated sellers.—How to handle seller objections.—Info about what’s included in my Simple Land Kit.

This is part three with my good friend Josh Howard, who is a missionary in the South Asia area. The goal of this session with Josh was to look at some of the counties that he's picked for his vacant land business.

The #1 Key to MASSIVE Business and Personal Growth for 2024 - with Shaun McCloskey from "Leadership Boardroom" » 1275

Shaun McCloskey and I go way back. We've known each other for about 17 years, and he's been on my podcast a lot. I’ve been in Shaun's coaching programs for years. He started off teaching and doing short sales and pre-foreclosures, and my wife even hung her real estate license under Shaun in his office as a broker. I learned a lot about real estate from him. Shaun also started Leadership Boardroom about seven years ago, which I have been with ever since. I highly recommend that program. Shaun has been sharing some things in our group that I thought would be good to chat about on the podcast. Shaun coaches hundreds of high-achieving people, helps them create a vision for what they want their life to look like, and then helps them design a business around that. For the few of us who do create a vision, how much effort are we really putting into it? Here, Shaun and I talk about taking our vision seriously and how to plan our daily and weekly activities around it. Shaun has an event coming up in February, and I’m going to be there. Check out all the details at’s Inside:—The importance of creating a vision for your business.—How to make sure you’re working towards your vision every single day.—Info about Shaun’s upcoming event.

PART 2 - Do or Die Series: Starting a Brand-New Land Investing Business from Scratch with Josh Howard » 1274

This is part two of my coaching series that I'm doing with Josh, a good friend of mine who is a missionary somewhere in South Asia. He's been doing some awesome things for the Lord in this particular country that he's in. If you haven't listened to part one yet, he's actually in an area of the world that is very dangerous for any religious minorities. In the last eight and a half years, Josh has seen over 20,000 churches started, which is just crazy. In our last call, we came away with a simple marketing plan, and here, we talk about putting our plan into action. We cover cold calling, direct mail, and working with VAs to get things done faster. We also talk about getting good leads and how to use tech like FreedomSoft and Prycd to run your real estate business. A lot of people get discouraged because it’s been a month and they don’t have leads or offers coming in yet. The truth is, you have to be committed for at least three to six months to gain traction. Make it your goal to talk to five sellers per day and get out three offers; it’s a recipe for success.What’s Inside:—How to work with VAs to streamline your process.—How to use programs like FreedomSoft and Prycd in your business.—How to find the best vacant land leads.

Were You Born on First Base or Third Base? » REI In Your Car » 1271

I was listening to a sports radio show, and they were talking about Jay-Z and Drake. They asked a very interesting question about when it should be time for them to stop singing and rapping about being poor. One guy said they can talk about it all they want because some people are born on first base and others on third. I thought about it, and it’s so true. None of us are born on home plate. Some people out there learned from the school of hard knocks and grew up in the streets or the hood. Others grew up in suburban, middle-class families, and their parents never got divorced. None of us get to choose when and where we’re born; that’s just the way it is. A lot of people blame their circumstances and failures on how they were raised, but I think that’s just an excuse. I know a lot of successful people that are in business today who were born on first base and are doing really well. My point is to stop making excuses for your lack of success and let it fire you up. You should also be excited and learn from others who are doing well.What’s Inside:—How the situation we’re born into impacts our business life.—Why you shouldn’t blame your failures on your circumstances.—Why you should be excited for those who are winning.

Stop Whining and Start Making Offers » REI In Your Car » 1270

Here’s the thing, guys. You can whine and complain, or you can make offers. What are you going to choose? You can complain, you can whine, you can blame other people. You can blame the software, systems, or even the postcards. You can blame the coaches and gurus all you want. The real question is, if things aren’t working for you, how many offers have you made? Someone in my Facebook group was just complaining about how unhappy they were with my course and marketing programs, and I asked them that very question. They never got back to me, but here’s my point: It’s all a numbers game.You can make excuses or you can make money, but you can’t make both. As a real estate entrepreneur, that’s your choice to make. If you’re someone who blames everyone else for your lack of success, you’ve got some other problems to address. Even if you don’t have the money to invest in fancy systems or marketing strategies, there are so many great free tools out there. I have students who are crushing it regardless.

What is Wholesaling? » REI In Your Car » 1269

I’m starting up a podcast series on “wholesaling 101” where I break things down to the most basic, elemental things, like, what is wholesaling? How do you wholesale a deal? In my mind, wholesaling is really simple. You essentially get a property at a discount, and you sell it for a little bit more to somebody else. It’s like when somebody brings something to a pawn shop. It's worth a lot more than what they're wanting to get, but they’re more interested in the quick cash. Additionally, you can't broker a property without a real estate license or working with a realtor who can help you do it, and I walk through all that here. I also talk about having the means and intent to close on deals. I finally launched my new program called Deals with Joe. It’s a program on how to do your first real estate deal in 30 days. I'm not promising or guaranteeing those results, but I created this program with all the details of how I’d start my real estate business over again from scratch. It’s worth following if you want to do some deals. It’s $7 a month, and every week, I’ll be doing special training. You’ll also get access to my deal analysis software to help you come up with offers, letters, and contracts. Click the link below for more info.What’s Inside:—Why I believe wholesaling is really simple.—Why you need to have a real estate license or work with realtors.—The two key things you need to close a deal.

Believe That It Works and That It Will Work for You » REI In Your Car » 1268

While I was golfing the other day, I got a text from my land company acquisitions partner, Matt. We just got to wire $31,000 and change from a deal that we just did. This was in an area of Florida that is pretty competitive, and we've probably spent $3,000 or $4,000 in direct mail. Not everybody makes money flipping vacant land, and not everybody who buys my course makes money. I've been doing this a long time, but it's not complicated. You have to put in the work. You have to put in the effort. There’s nothing stopping you from having success in this business except you getting in your own way. It’s easy to get in your own head and think that things won’t work for you. You've got to get the negative doubts out of your head, and you've got to believe that it works. You’ve also got to get out there and do the marketing, talk to the sellers, make offers, and be consistent.

Selling Vacant Land Notes with Rick Allen from PaperStac » 1267

Here, I’m talking about something I don’t know if we’ve ever discussed on the show before: flipping, buying, and selling vacant land notes. There are tons of people out there doing vacant land deals just for the cash flow or for the notes. If you don’t know what a note is, you’re in the right place. Rick Allen, from a company called Paperstac, dives into everything you need to know right here. In simple terms, a note is basically a piece of paper with a promise on it to pay back a certain amount of money with payments over time. A lot of folks who buy and sell vacant land will sell the land on owner financing. When you do that, you create a note, which you can also sell. Knowing this, you can wholesale a deal and make five to 10 grand on it. There’s big demand for buying properties on owner financing and creating notes, and there’s also big demand from private note investors who will want to buy them.What’s Inside:—All about Rick’s company, Paperstac.—Why notes make sense for vacant land deals.—How to make a profit selling notes.

Two Resons Why Your Deal Isn’t Selling » REI In Your Car » 1266

A question came through my Land Flips class Facebook group from someone who’s taking a ton of massive action. They have about eight properties under contract and made a bunch of money on their first deal. However, selling the properties hasn’t been easy, and they can’t figure out what they’re doing wrong. The truth is, there are really only two reasons why a property doesn’t sell, whether it’s a house or vacant land, and I dive into them both here. Number one, it could be overpriced, and it’s just not a good deal. It doesn’t matter what the market’s doing; anything will sell if the price is right. Number two, the property isn’t being marketed in the right way to get it in front of the right buyers. There are always buyers out there; you just need to find out where they are and make sure they know about your deal. I cover some basic tips to help you start selling and see more success in your business.What’s Inside:—The two main reasons your deals aren’t selling.—How to price your deals.—Marketing tips to get your deals in front of the right buyers.

Well, guess what? If you wait for the perfect time, you're never going to get started. Done is the new perfect, and if you want to have success in this business, you need to have a ready, fire, aim approach. You're going to mess up, and you’re going to make mistakes anyway.

Every single real estate deal is different because you're dealing with people and the unknown. Every deal is going to have something in it that you can’t anticipate. Instead of asking “what if” all the time, start asking better questions like, “What next?” Taking massive, imperfect action is always the answer.What’s Inside:—Why it’s important to take massive, imperfect action.

Real Deal Breakdown - Simple, Simple, Simple » REI In Your Car » 1264

I'm super excited about a land deal we just got under contract, and I want to share a few lessons with you. It was a really simple deal, but it came from a really competitive county. Even in a competitive county, my response rates using my direct mail strategy are two to three times higher than they are for houses. The first lesson is that direct mail will always work. Number two, this business is a marketing business, plain and simple. Number three, your success is determined by how many offers you make and how quickly you make them. If you want to do deals, you have to make offers. If you’ve been frustrated and struggling in your real estate business, ask yourself how many offers you made in the last week and month. That’s all that matters. When you learn to make offers, you’re going to learn how to make money. I’m doing an exclusive implementation workshop with my good friend Gavin Timms on October 5th and 6th. It’s going to be a virtual workshop over Zoom, and we’ll help you get your business set up for success.

What Really Matters Most? » REI In Your Car » 1262

Sam Walton, the guy who started Wal-Mart, is probably one of the most successful and wealthiest business owners in American history. He died a multi-billionaire, and his last words were, “I blew it.” I don't know the whole story behind that, but when you're facing death and dying, you're not thinking about spending more time at work. You're thinking things like, “I wish I would have spent more time with my family. I hope my family knows that I still love them. I hope that I'm leaving behind a legacy.” Who cares if a trillion people love you and think that you're awesome if your family hates you because you neglected them? It's better to be poor and broke but have a loving family than to make tons of money and have a family that hates you.

A coaching student of mine just had a major win. She messaged me on Voxer, saying that she just netted $25,000 in profit on her first big land deal. I love success stories like this because it's hard to find those kinds of people. It's hard to find good people who are willing to put in the work and effort and stay consistent with it. They don’t quit, give up, or get discouraged when it gets hard. They’re willing to put in the work and aren't expecting immediate results, or riches falling from the sky within minutes of getting started.People think the game sounds easy, and they can make money while playing video games in their parents’ basement. I know it doesn't work that way. You've got to put in the effort, and you've got to put in the work. The numbers show that about 95% of you guys listening to this will not do anything with what you're taught. Sometimes the truth is that you don’t need another course or program.

What I Would Do If I Had to Start All over Again » REI In Your Car » 1260

Recently, I was thinking about what I’d do differently if I were to start my real estate business all over again. If I wanted to quit my job, knowing what I know now, if I had to start all over again from scratch, what would I do? When I did my first wholesaling deal, I made real money. I bought and held. I was doing subject to's, owner financing, and lease options, but it wasn't paying the bills. It was a little bit of cash flow, but it would disappear, especially when the market crashed.Here's the deal: I like spreadsheets, but you can get a spreadsheet to tell you whatever you want it to tell you; trust me on that. Things don't always work out, and the market is always shifting and changing. You're going to make good deals and bad deals. Here, I lay out all the things I’d do differently so you don’t have to fumble through the same mistakes I did. You need to learn how to become a deal finder because there will be times when you need a quick infusion of cash. If you don't know how to wholesale the house or land, you're going to get into trouble.What’s Inside:—Everything I’d do differently if I had to start my real estate business from scratch.—Why you need to become a deal finder.—Info on my new product: Deals With Joe.

30 Day Jesus Challenge: Day 30 - Who is Jesus to you?

“When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say that the Son of Man is?” “Well,” they replied, “some say John the Baptist, some say Elijah, and others say Jeremiah or one of the other prophets.” Then he asked them, “But who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Jesus replied, “You are blessed, Simon son of John, because my Father in heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being. Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it. And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.””‭‭Matthew‬ ‭16‬:‭13‬-‭19‬ NLT“One of the twelve disciples, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin), was not with the others when Jesus came. They told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he replied, “I won’t believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side.” Eight days later the disciples were together again, and this time Thomas was with them. The doors were locked; but suddenly, as before, Jesus was standing among them. “Peace be with you,” he said. Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!” “My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed. Then Jesus told him, “You believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.””‭‭John‬ ‭20‬:‭24‬-‭29‬ ‭NLT‬‬“For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.”‭‭Colossians‬ ‭2‬:‭9‬ ‭NLT‬‬I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept his claim to be God. That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic—on the level with the man who says he is a poached egg—or else he would be the Devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse. You can shut him up for a fool, you can spit at him and kill him as a demon or you can fall at his feet and call him Lord and God, but let us not come with any patronising nonsense about his being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to. . . . Now it seems to me obvious that He was neither a lunatic nor a fiend: and consequently, however strange or terrifying or unlikely it may seem, I have to accept the view that He was and is God.

You can do deals anywhere in the United States from anywhere in the world. All you need is a cell phone like this and a laptop. Robin and I start our conversation with how he became interested in United States real estate, specifically land investing. We also talk about his marketing strategies, how he brings in new business, and why he prefers land over houses. Direct mail is still very much alive, and Robin shares how he uses it.

“For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. He did this to present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without fault. In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as they love their own bodies. For a man who loves his wife actually shows love for himself. No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church. And we are members of his body.”‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭5‬:‭25‬-‭30‬ ‭NLT‬‬“God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church.

Learn How to Talk to Land Sellers Who Get Your Crazy Low Offers with Claude Diamond » 1256

You're in for a treat because I’ve got the one and only Claude Diamond with me here. I might've had more guest appearances from Claude Diamond than anybody else on my podcast, which I've been doing since 2011. We're going to be talking about sales, as Claude is my number-one sales mentor. This is a must-listen for anyone who wants some help learning how to talk to sellers. To be a success, you better learn how to “give better phone”, as Claude likes to affectionately say. Sales is the million-dollar skill. It doesn't matter if you're wholesaling lease options, buying old houses, land, mobile homes, commercial properties, or anything else.

30 Day Jesus Challenge: Day 28 - He is the Word of God

“In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.” - John‬ ‭1‬:‭1‬-‭5‬, ‭14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

How Jose Is Doing More Land Deals by Partnering with People » 1254

Jose Armstrong knows all about how to flip vacant land deals, and he’s been doing them along with some of my students. One of the things that a lot of people I know are doing, and something I’ve been doing for years, is partnering with other people on deals. Sometimes I find the leads and get them under contract, but I don't have the time or don't want to sell them. So, I'll find somebody else to sell inventory, or people will find the deals for me, bring them to me, and we'll partner on them either by lending the money or closing together. This is something I teach others how to do, and Jose’s here to share his own experience and success stories.There may be times when you have to turn down deals because of a lack of time, money, or something else. When you partner with others, you can get what you need and still do the deal. Jose and I talk about some of the deals he’s done recently and how much he’s profited. We also discuss marketing, what areas he’s most interested in, and how he puts together offers. If you’re interested in learning more, go to for more information on my Simple Land Flips class, where I’ll teach you how to do land deals from beginning to end.What’s Inside:—How to partner with others to do more deals.—How Jose does partnership deals and some recent success stories.—How to put together a solid offer.

30 Day Jesus Challenge: Day 24 - He’s adopted me into His family

“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.”‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1‬:‭3‬-‭8‬ ‭NLT‬‬“But when the right time came, God sent his Son, born of a woman, subject to the law. God sent him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir.”‭‭Galatians‬ ‭4‬:‭4‬-‭7‬ ‭NLT‬‬“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children.”‭‭Romans‬ ‭8‬:‭14‬-‭16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

How To Research Land Markets And Pull The Best Land Lists » 1253

Waiting for show notes...Max Edson and Ryan Doucet started the company Prycd and here we’re talking about best practices for researching markets and pulling lists. One of the biggest mistakes you can make in your vacant land business is going into the wrong markets. You might think you know a certain state or county, but you might not know which area is the best place to do deals. Along with the guys from Prycd, we're going to show you how to research and find the best markets. Once you've picked some markets, you’ll need to know how to pull the best lists. You want to be specific and targeted, but you don't want to overanalyze everything. Spray and pray marketing isn’t the best strategy. Getting very specific and intentional when going into the best markets gives you the best chance to find a good deal and sell it as quickly as possible. I love Prycd. I recommend it all the time and use it every day. I use it for research, I use it for buying lists, and I use it for finding buyers. I use it to comp properties, even in states where it’s hard to get comps.

30 Day Jesus Challenge: Day 22 - He’s in the boat with me

“As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” So they took Jesus in the boat and started out, leaving the crowds behind (although other boats followed). But soon a fierce storm came up. High waves were breaking into the boat, and it began to fill with water. Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. Then he asked them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” The disciples were absolutely terrified. “Who is this man?” they asked each other. “Even the wind and waves obey him!””‭‭Mark‬ ‭4‬:‭35‬-‭41‬ ‭NLT‬‬Life Application Bible Notes: Mark 4:38-40 The disciples panicked because the storm threatened to destroy them all and Jesus seemed unaware and unconcerned. They faced a physical storm, but storms come in other forms too. Think about the storms in your life—the situations that cause you great anxiety. Whatever your difficulty, you have two options: You can worry and panic and assume that Jesus no longer cares, or you can resist fear, putting your trust in him to be by your side and to help. When you feel like panicking, confess your need for God and then trust him to take care of you.When Jesus is in the boat… you can

“And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water. Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.” - Hebrews‬ ‭10‬:‭19‬-‭25‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Later, Levi invited Jesus and his disciples to his home as dinner guests, along with many tax collectors and other disreputable sinners. (There were many people of this kind among Jesus’ followers.) But when the teachers of religious law who were Pharisees saw him eating with tax collectors and other sinners, they asked his disciples, “Why does he eat with such scum?” When Jesus heard this, he told them, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners."” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭2‬:‭13‬-‭17‬ ‭NLT‬‬Future & Hope

Hot Simple Tip To Sell Your Vacant Land Faster » 1252

We’re currently working on a deal somewhere in Florida, and I want to show you something here that is really, really cool. It’s a four-acre property that we got under contract for about $215,000. The seller listed it the year before at $340,000, and it expired a few months ago. We originally listed the property on our website and for $280,000 and got a buyer, but it fell through. We were getting discouraged, but then we took a bit of a different angle.We got on the phone and started calling buyer’s agents, offering them generous commissions if they could find us a buyer. This subtle shift made a huge difference, and in just a few phone calls, we got a buyer. We were blatant and upfront with the realtors that we were wholesalers and told them we just wanted to assign our contract to save on closing costs. Here, I’m walking through the strategy so you can copy it in your own business. What’s Inside:—How to work with realtors to sell your vacant land faster.

How To SELL Your Land Deals - Masterclass Video with Jerry Norton Part 7 » 1250

Part seven of my masterclass series with Jerry Norton dives deep into selling your vacant land. In this podcast, I talk a lot about how to think of things with the end in mind. When you're pricing and selling land, you've got to think about it in terms of what would make this property as attractive as possible to an end buyer. That means you have to know who your end buyer is. You need to know what they’re looking for, and then you need to know what the competition is looking at. So, your pricing must be as competitive as possible.When you price your properties correctly, it’s easier to make winning offers. You won’t win every time, but you’ll definitely increase your odds of success and making money in your real estate business. Jerry and I go through how to get your deals online so you can sell them. We also talk about how to find realtors to help you sell your properties. There’s a lot of juicy content in this part of the video series, so I hope you leave with some takeaways.

30 Day Jesus Challenge: Day 03 - Jesus is my Healer

Having just gone through major open heart surgery to replace my calcified aortic valve, I have a lot of appreciation for Jesus being a healer. ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭12‬:‭13‬-‭15‬, ‭17‬-‭21‬ ‭NLT‬‬:“Then he said to the man, “Hold out your hand.” So the man held out his hand, and it was restored, just like the other one! Then the Pharisees called a meeting to plot how to kill Jesus. But Jesus knew what they were planning. So he left that area, and many people followed him. He healed all the sick among them, This fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah concerning him: “Look at my Servant, whom I have chosen. He is my Beloved, who pleases me. I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations. He will not fight or shout or raise his voice in public. He will not crush the weakest reed or put out a flickering candle. Finally he will cause justice to be victorious. And his name will be the hope of all the world.”” Luke‬ ‭4‬:‭16‬-‭21‬ ‭NLT:“When he came to the village of Nazareth, his boyhood home, he went as usual to the synagogue on the Sabbath and stood up to read the Scriptures. The scroll of Isaiah the prophet was handed to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where this was written: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the Lord’s favor has come. ” He rolled up the scroll, handed it back to the attendant, and sat down. All eyes in the synagogue looked at him intently. Then he began to speak to them. “The Scripture you’ve just heard has been fulfilled this very day!””‭‭Psalms‬ ‭103‬:‭1‬-‭5‬ ‭NLT:‬‬“Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me. He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases. He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!”‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭2‬:‭22‬-‭25‬ ‭NLT‬‬:“He never sinned, nor ever deceived anyone. He did not retaliate when he was insulted, nor threaten revenge when he suffered. He left his case in the hands of God, who always judges fairly. He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed. Once you were like sheep who wandered away. But now you have turned to your Shepherd, the Guardian of your souls.”You have a future and a hope...

Top 3 Sources For Free Vacant Land Leads » 1238

I was just giving my one son a refresher course on vacant land deals. Together, we’ve made over $150,000 in net profits. We sat down and I told him how to pick the right market and how to find out where the demand is. He doesn’t have that much money for marketing, so we looked at three top sources for free vacant land deals. Here, I’m sharing those sources with you. Number one, check out the MLS. There are a ton of properties there, and you can filter things down to target properties that have been on the market for 90 or 180 days. We also looked at for sale by owner properties. We focused on those a lot when we did houses and lease options, but they work for vacant land as well. The last free source is to find other land or home investors who have old leads. You could offer to partner with them and follow up. It’s all a numbers game, and you've got to talk to a lot of sellers and make a ton of offers. What’s Inside:—My top 3 sources for free vacant land deals.—How to use the MLS to find leads.—How to partner up with other investors on old leads.

Busting The Top Myths Of Land Investing Part 2 » 1235

I’ve been flipping land for a very, very long time and there are some really stupid myths out there. The truth is, flipping land is a lot of fun and in the last couple of weeks, we made over $50,000 in net profit. Here, I walk through the most common land investing myths and show you why they’re false. The first one is that you need a lot of money to get started in the business. You can wholesale or flip vacant land and sell it without ever buying it. You can also use private money to fund deals. Another myth is that you need to have a lot of time, which I know firsthand isn’t true. My sons and I have done a ton of deals and only work on our land business part time.You also don’t have to talk to a ton of sellers. You can use a direct mail strategy and send out cheap postcards or letters directing folks to a recorded voicemail. You can actually wind up getting more calls this way and I’ll show you why. Other myths I bust include that selling land is complicated and that you have to do something to the land before you sell it.

How To Wholesale Deals without a License? » REI In Your Car » 1228

Every now and then, the question of whether or not you can wholesale without a license comes up. Several states have laws around wholesaling, contracts, and options, and people go into hysterics over them. The truth is that these rules are nothing new and have been around a long time, so take a deep breath. I never tell my students to trick the system or try to get around the rules. There’s nothing illegal or immoral about wholesaling; you just have to know how to play.While it’s true that you need a license when you get into brokering activity, there is a way around it, and that’s to use realtors. You either become one or pay one to help. Here, I talk about how to work with realtors and why you can’t afford not to have one sell your deals. Using a realtor often pays for itself, and you’re most likely to get a higher price for your property than if you were to sell it without one.

The Ultimate Blueprint for Earning $100K a Year with Coaching » 1227

I’m back with Tom Krol, and we’re talking about the fastest way to get to $100K per year with coaching. It’s a lot easier than you think. Some people do coaching part-time as a side hustle and bring in $2,000 to $3,000 a month, which is phenomenal. We’re also going to be talking about this in our upcoming Coach Marketing Workshop in Orlando on May 18th and 19th. Check out the link below for more information. We’re doing it live and keeping it small, and we’ll even show you how to get to $100K per month! The number one reason why Tom has such a high success rate with his students is because his business wasn’t made in coaching coaches. He was an actual coach, and there’s a huge difference. People want to learn from others who are doing exactly what they want to do, not from a person who just read all the books and teaches techniques.

How The Rich Think About Money! THIS Money Mindset Hack Makes You WEALTHY! 🤑 » 1225

How you think about money is one of the most important lessons you’ll learn as an entrepreneur or business owner. Here, I dive into how the rich, middle-class, and poor think about money and hopefully challenge some of your assumptions on how you view wealth. A lot of people think wealth and riches are determined by how much cash is in your bank account or your net worth, but it goes a lot further. How you think about money influences your financial status, and your perspective is mission-critical. I walk through the three psychological approaches to money and why rich people see it as a tool for creating even more wealth. Poor and middle-class people believe money controls them, which can be a major roadblock. As a wealthy person, you know you’re in control of your money, which is why it’s important to create the right systems that allow you to generate cash flow for the long term. It’s important to focus on your legacy, and generating passive income through your investments is the key. If you want to be rich, you’ll need to think like rich people. What’s Inside:—How your money mindset influences your financial status.—The three psychological approaches to money.—Why you should focus on your legacy.

Who Do You Hang Out With? » REI In Your Car » 1217

Who do you hang out with and spend time with the most? I’m not talking about your spouse or your family, the most important people. I’m talking in terms of business acquaintances or friends and the people you socialize with. If you’re doing deals, you don’t want to be hanging out with people who think real estate is some kind of scam, or that you’ll never be able to quit your full-time job. You also don’t want to be hanging out with people who haven’t been where you are or aren’t where you’d like to be. I wrestle with this myself, and it’s important to surround yourself with people who want to see you win.Most people have a couple of different circles of friends, which is totally OK. You might have a circle of friends from your church or your neighborhood, but it’s also key to have a circle of entrepreneurial friends and people on the business side of things. Hanging out with people who have been-there-done-that is going to help you get clarity on what you really want. If you don’t have a circle of friends who can help you grow, start thinking about how you can find these people. Coaching groups and masterminds are a great place to start.What’s Inside:—Why it’s important to surround yourself with the right people.

Land Investors Are Lazy » REI In Your Car » 1215

I was talking to a friend of mine recently about how land investors are lazy. This isn’t a bad thing, because a lot of us are used to sending out blind offers and neutral letters to a downloaded list of landowners. It’s all a numbers game. But I’ve been thinking about this and I have some observations. I’ve been teaching my land course now for over a year and the people who are doing the most deals are the ones who are aggressive with three main things.The first one is that they’re doing a ton of consistent marketing. They’re taking action or they’ve outsourced it, but they’re not just doing marketing when the stars are aligned. The second thing is that they’re talking to people. It’s not that complicated – if you want to do a lot of deals, you need to talk to a lot of people. Lastly, they’re relentlessly following up with their old leads. They send offers out over and over again and that’s where the magic happens.What’s Inside:—The three things you must do to succeed in land investing

Why Building Multiple Streams of Income Is So Important » REI In Your Car » 1211

Having multiple streams of income is really important for a lot of reasons. When I first got started in business and was working for myself, I got into real estate and started doing deals. Then, I got asked by others to help teach them how to do what I was doing. Although I didn’t invent the strategy, what I was doing with lease options was unique at the time. Before I knew it, I was making more money in real estate than I was at my full-time job, and I was still working. Eventually, I quit because only having three weeks of vacation was frustrating, along with making the same money, no matter how hard I worked.There are a lot of dumb gurus out there who overcharge and take advantage of people, but that doesn’t mean you have to throw the whole industry under the bus. All the real estate greats had teachers themselves, and that’s what inspired me to teach others.

The 4 M's To Financial Success In Land Investing » 1202

Whether you’re investing in vacant land or houses, there are four key elements of a successful real estate strategy. Here, I’ll show you my mind map that I use to create my courses. The four M’s of financial success in real estate investing are mindset, marketing, momentum, and mentor. The very first thing you need to do is get your mindset right because it all starts in your head. Success is 80% mental and only 20% technical so it’s important to lay the right foundation. The second M is marketing, and I always tell my students that we’re in the marketing business, not the real estate business. If you want to make money, you have to do deals. When you get your marketing right, you talk to more sellers and are able to make more offers.Number three is momentum. When your head’s in the right place and your marketing strategy is bringing in great leads, it’s easy to keep the momentum going. It’s hard at first and you have to be willing to fail before you get it right, but the longer you continue to build, it does get easier. The last M is mentorship. Sometimes, you just need someone to help remind you of why you started. A good mentor holds you accountable so you can hit your goals. Having someone in your corner who’s been where you are now can help motivate you to keep going and not give up.What’s Inside:—The four M’s of financial success in real estate

Answering the phone is so important and it’s a bit of a lost art that we’ve forgotten about. It’s a common courtesy lost in today’s digital age of emails and texting, but it really hurts your business if you don’t do it. Here, I share a great example of why going old school and picking up the phone is still as important as ever through a recent adventure I had looking for a siding contractor. The main factor that helped me pick who I decided to work with was how responsive they were and who called me back in a timely manner.When you answer your phone, you show you’re serious, which means you’ll do more deals. If you want to double your business, answer calls right away. If you can’t, at least send a text message saying you’re sorry you missed the call, and that you’ll get back to them ASAP. You can also hire virtual assistants to help you out with phone calls. Lots of folks use technology tools to keep everything organized as well, but you don’t have to get fancy if that’s not your style.

I’ve talked about this before, but many of you know I’ve failed miserably several times in my real estate business. I’ve made a ton of mistakes, but I’ve always come out stronger because of it. I’m sharing my story to show you all that I’m not perfect and that it’s possible to overcome failure and succeed.Here, I go in-depth about my troubles with paying off private investors. I also got into some pretty deep trouble with the IRS. I couldn’t keep up with my tax payments and then there were late fees and penalties on top of that. I eventually had to face it all head-on and about two years ago, I paid everything off. We all do stupid stuff, but I want you to know you’re not alone. Don’t get discouraged, but don’t give yourself excuses. Own up to your mistakes and ask for help, whether it’s from a coach or a trusted friend. God turned my mess into a message and if I can turn things around, you can, too.What’s Inside:—Mistakes I’ve made in my real estate business and how I turned them around.—Why you shouldn’t get down on yourself about your own failures and mistakes.

Do This (And Don’t Do That) If You Want To Be On My Podcast » REI In Your Car » 1180

I've been doing my podcast for 11 or 12 years now. I’ve done over a thousand episodes and over 10 million downloads, probably close to 11 million or so. I've been doing this for a long time, and every day I get an average of two or three requests from people wanting to be on my show. Most people reach out and tell me how awesome they are, how they went from zero to hero, and that they went from eating ramen noodles to making a million bucks a month. Some mention they’ve been on other people’s podcasts and written best-selling books, and sometimes they’re lying and it’s a bunch of B.S.But here’s the deal: no one cares when the show’s all about you. Now I do care about you guys, but I don’t want to do those kinds of interviews. I want to do interviews and videos where we teach people how to do stuff. I did a recent podcast where we walk through actionable steps that will help others do better in their business and show them the tools and strategies to help them get there. If you have a unique twist on marketing or a different angle on how to wholesale, I want to hear from you.What’s Inside:—How to get on my podcast (and how not to!)

Can You Do Deals Just From Texting? » REI In Your Car » 1175

If you’re wondering if you can do vacant land deals by just texting, the answer is yes! I just did one and it always blows me away. Using texting along with a direct mail campaign can work like a charm and we recently did this with a list of about 6,000 people for our recent New Market Challenge. We prefer to send out a generic, neutral letter that asks if the recipient wants to sell their land, along with the number to our 24-hour recorded voicemail. We set the voicemail up in FreedomSoft and there are all sorts of cool automation features you can use.It's crazy to think about doing any kind of deal without actually talking to the other party, but this is proof that it can be done. All you have to do is get your process set up on the front end, so everything runs smoothly. There are so many tools available these days and here, I share some of the ones I’ve been using, including a mass email tool that works with FreedomSoft and a Gmail account.

Take a Step Back » REI In Your Car » 1174

Things are changing in the economy and I’m getting nervous because I see a lot of people who are going to get into trouble. Over the last several years, people have been very prosperous, and when we thought things were going to fall apart in 2020, that didn’t happen. So, we’ve been given this false sense of security, but with inflation and interest rates rising, we’re definitely in a recession. Eventually, the bubble is going to burst, and some people will still be trying to live the same lifestyle without making any adjustments, which could have serious consequences.It's important to stay prepared financially so you can weather the storm. When you’re prepared, if your revenue goes down, you can stay afloat, keep folks employed, and keep food on the table. Lower your expenses wherever you can and get back to the basics. Remember, no matter what the economy does, we still have to pay our taxes and bills. Taking a step back and seeing where you can make cuts now before things get bad will save you in the event of a major recession. Plan for the worst-case scenario and put things in place ahead of time.What’s Inside:—Why preparation is so important ahead of a recession.—The consequences of not being prepared to weather an economic storm.—How to cut back on expenses to protect your business.

Advanced Land Investing Strategies with Travis King - Part 2 » 1169

This is part two of my podcast with Travis King. Here, we’re diving into more detail about land investing and some of the tools and resources, and systems that Travis uses. He's been doing this for a long, long time, and so we're going to be talking into that. One of the most common questions I get is how to pick a good market when there are so many to choose from. According to Travis, the sweet spot is two states or less and we get into all of the reasons why. The beauty of land investing is that it doesn’t have to be in your backyard, and with today’s tools and tech, you can do deals anywhere.With houses, we often talk about finding the buyers first, because it’s easier to sell buyers what they want rather than what you have. Travis talks about how you can do the same thing with land and how to build a campaign. We talk about what you should do as a beginning investor if you’re just getting started, and one of the things Travis teaches his students is to target rural vacant land and residential buildable lots.

Travis King has been doing land longer than I have. He's a beast. He's got a great reputation in the industry, and he was recommended to me by a friend, so I wanted to get him on because I've seen him around for a long, long time. He started doing land deals in Montana back in 1999 when he was just a year out of high school.

Today, he’s crushing it as a land investing expert and coach with well over 7 figures of land investment deals under his belt.Travis talks about how he finances his deals and how he got started.

New Market Challenge Day 5 - Finding Buyers For Your Deals

So far in our New Market Challenge, we’ve talked about how we choose our markets, how we put together our marketing strategies, how we make offers, and how we talk to sellers. Day five of our challenge is all about finding buyers for your deals. There are different ways to do it depending on whether you’re flipping houses or land. The goal is to make sure that your numbers are good. If they’re wrong, you’ll learn that from the buyer. If you’re well networked and understand where and what your buyers are buying, you’re going to have an easier time.Buyers come and go, and you need to be networking all the time. Some of the most important folks to get in front of are cash buyers, realtors, property managers, and wholesalers. Gavin and I show you some examples of how we gather intel with the right tools. One of the most fundamental tips is that you’ve got to answer the phone. If you like money, you’ll need to pick up those calls because you never know who’s on the other end. You also always need to be marketing for buyers, whether that’s direct mail, a cold calling campaign, or something else that works for you. Gavin and I also walk through some examples of how to have conversations with buyers once you’ve targeted them.What’s Inside:—Who to network with to find buyers.—Why do you need to answer your phone.—How to talk to buyers and what to ask them.

New Market Challenge Day 4 - How To Make Offers And Evaluate Deals

Day four of our New Market Challenge is all about how to make offers and evaluate deals, specifically for houses. We already covered how to make offers for vacant land, which is super easy. It’s kind of the same for houses, and really all you have to do is figure out what you can sell it for and then offer less. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Sometimes the best way to do this for both houses and land is to look at your potential price and understand who you’re selling to. Landlords, rehabbers, and retail buyers all buy properties at different prices.Gavin walks through how to use services like Zillow or Redfin to look at sold properties and form your estimates. We’ll also take a look at some example deals and show you how to make an offer. It’s key to look at the location and how much work needs to be done, as well as how long a property’s been on the market. You can also grab realtor information from the web and see if you can uncover more information through them as well. There are all sorts of ways to come up with offers, and Gavin and I share our favorite formulas. Don’t be afraid to make lowball offers and don’t worry about offending people. If it doesn’t give you butterflies in your stomach, it might not be low enough. What’s Inside:—Why it’s important to know who you’re selling to.—Walkthrough of how to use Zillow or Redfin to come up with pricing.—Factors to consider when pricing and evaluating potential deals.—Tips for using PropStream and Freedom Soft.

New Market Challenge Day 3 - Talking To Sellers and Making Offers

On the first day of our challenge, we talked about taking the markets and how to pick the right counties. On day two, we talked about the marketing we’re doing. Gavin’s doing a combination of direct mail, cold calling, and texting, and I’m doing mostly direct mail and sending simple letters to sellers. On day three of our New Market Challenge, we’re diving into how to talk to sellers and make winning offers. Even in this crazy environment, we’re starting to see higher seller motivation, as many sellers are lowering their prices out of fear. So much of real estate is about mindset, and in a recession, people tend to panic.As we head into the fall season, it’s the best time to get deals under contract because sellers are thinking your competition is backing off. If you plug in and get yourself hyper-focused and lean into your marketing, you’re going to get plenty of deals under contract and set yourself up nicely for the winter. We talk about the four pillars that we’ve covered in the past, which include uncovering seller motivation, their timeline for selling, the condition of the property, and the price. Getting these four key pieces of information can help you put together the best offer possible. I’ll also show you some real leads coming in for vacant land and walk through an example of a blind offer. What’s Inside:—Why seller mindset is a driving factor in real estate.—How to use the four pillars to make a great offer.—Walkthrough of a blind offer for vacant land.

New Market Challenge Day 2 - The Marketing Plan (How To Get Leads)

Day 2 of our challenge and we are seeing a lot of promising progress. Today, we’re tackling what I think is the most enjoyable step in the process – marketing. Yesterday, we showed you the market or county we were going into and in this episode, we will show you what we’re going to do for the marketing.A lot of people think that getting leads is hard, takes a lot of time and needs a lot of money. Over the years of this podcast, I have always taught that our marketing strategy isn’t something fancy, complicated or above you. It’s actually easy…you just have to approach it from a mindset of “how CAN I do this” instead of “I can’t do this.” So, Gavin shares his marketing strategy targeting motivated sellers in the housing market he’s selected. He’s doing skip tracing, cold calling, text messaging and direct mail. Gavin shows how he put together a list through skip tracing and how he’s running the same list through marketing THREE different ways to get the most deliverability rate possible. Why is he taking the same list and marketing 3 ways? It’s because each person has a different marketing language. One may respond to a cold call, while another would rather respond to a text and there are some who would get intrigued with a direct mail offer. He hasn’t even started with the texting and direct mailing as of yet and has only done 5 hours of cold calling a day before this episode. Guess what? He’s already gotten 4 leads with one being very close to closing the contract.With houses, it’s super important that you answer the phone live especially if it’s a direct mail lead. It’s a challenge to get people on the phone and when you do, you have to talk to them live. With vacant land, the competition is not as stiff so you can direct them to voice mail but you have to make sure you call them back. Now, going into my vacant land marketing. I’m doing something a bit different here. A lot of land investors like to send blind offers and you make a ton of people mad with that. The advantage of that is the low offers and you don’t need to talk to anybody until they see your offer. The draw back is you have to send a lot more mail to get leads. What I’m doing is you don’t have to send as much mail but what I want is to get as many people to call me as possible because 75% of your deals come from follow up. You can get more deals with less marketing if you have more leads to work on. I share how the land neutral letters I send out make this possible and show the whole process including how I do my settings, track data for leads and compare the market value with my offer price. We send the letter and they go to voicemail. This is all done and automated in Freedomsoft. When you use automation delegation for your marketing, things are happening while you’re busy and leads are generating while you’re doing something else. If you want lifetime access to the recordings, private Q&A coaching calls, our Contracts and Document Package, and many more freebies, you have to have VIP Access.

New Market Challenge Day 1 - Picking Our New Markets

Welcome to the New Market Challenge Day 1! Today we will be talking about the virtual markets that we are targeting for houses and for vacant land. And our goal for this challenge is to teach you and show you everything that we’ll do if we lost it all and had to start over from scratch. You can take what we do and copy it to your own REI business.Gavin and I take turns dissecting our step-by-step process on how we picked our markets for this challenge. Gavin talks about the things he looks out for when looking at the housing market and he first looks into his network to find a partner in the specific market location he’s looking at. Once he finds the right partner, he goes into the data about zip codes, areas where there are good buyers-buy-in ratio, population, etc., and he analyzes those against his numbers. Gavin discusses further the steps he takes to narrow down these numbers to get to the markets with the most potential for deals & profit using Freedomsoft and List Source. But how do you know it’s the right market? Gavin says that it’s easy to identify the market that you SHOULDN’T go into versus identifying the market that you should go into. There are more good markets than the bad markets. His pro tip: do trade your hard high-end market for another hard high-end market. There’s too much tough competition there. But at the end of the day, your consistency of taking action if what’s going to get the deal – not the market.Moving on to vacant land, numbers are also important and like the housing market, you want to find the areas that has a lot of activity. I show you how I do my research for vacant land through Land Watch. What we’re looking for is cheap, rural, recreational, vacant land out in the sticks. So essentially, you filter out your searches based on those 4 criteria. You narrow down to the top 10 counties and run those through Zillow and/or Redfin to identify exactly how many ‘solds’ a county has. The thing about vacant land is you want to have at least 15 counties listed in your pipeline to start marketing to. You want to select a county that has investor activity. That’s it.

Bad News Never Gets Better with Time » REI In Your Car » 1167

Right now, I’m going through some stuff with my kids regarding money owed for a car situation, and I don’t know whether to deal with it or just let it go. But one of my friends just told me something profound. He said that bad news never gets better with time. Uncomfortable situations and discussions don’t go away when you put them off and continuing to push them away just prolongs the inevitable. You’re going to have to deal with things eventually, so why not face them head-on?I’ve learned this from my own experience as well. When I owed the IRS a ton of money in back taxes and penalties, I was just burying my head in the sand and not dealing with the problem. I was trying to take care of it on my own before anyone found out about it, and it backed me into a corner. Eventually, I was forced to deal with it, and admitting that I needed help was the first step. The sooner you ask for help, the sooner you can get out of whatever problems you’re facing.What’s Inside:—Why time passing doesn’t make bad news any better.—Why you should ask for help as soon as you need it.

Five Reasons Why Investing in Real Estate is the Best Investment » REI In Your Car » 1164

I wanted to do a quick podcast just summarizing the advantages of owning real estate, specifically rental properties. I bring this up because it’s easy to forget sometimes. We get so deep in the weeds, and we forget why we do what we do. Sometimes, it’s helpful to be reminded so that when you’re talking with family, friends, and private lenders, you can answer their questions.I give you five reasons why and how you can make money through owning rental properties. Number one is appreciation, number two is cash flow, and number three is tax benefits. Number four is the equity you build as you pay off your mortgage. Finally, number five is that you create a hedge against inflation, which is so important in our current economic environment.What’s Inside:—Five reasons why owning rental properties is a great investment.

Try This Cool Trick When Sending Offers » REI In Your Car » 1163

I always get excited for my vacant land coaching calls. My students are doing fantastic, closing deals, and making good profits. One of my students has a great marketing strategy that is a no-brainer and I wanted to share it all with my podcast listeners because it’s so simple and effective. What she does is she sends her offers in a 9x12 envelope and also includes a self-addressed envelope as well so the receiver can simply send the contract back to her should they accept.This technique is perfect because it speaks to elderly sellers who might be more averse to phone calls and emailing. It’s a manual process and it takes some time to implement, but it’s a solid strategy. Right now, my students are averaging about a 2% response rate, so if you send out 1,000 letters, you’ll get 20 calls back, which is really good. Whether you’re doing land or houses, I think you should test this out and see what happens.What’s Inside:—Recent successes with my vacant land students.—Why sending manual letters is still a great marketing strategy, especially for older sellers.

If You’ve Not Made Somebody Mad by Noon, You’re Not Marketing Hard Enough » REI In Your Car » 1162

I feel like I talk about this topic a lot, but you really should be making so many offers that you get yelled at often. Some of my students are more sensitive than others, and I used to be that way too when I was just starting out. However, the truth is that you’re in the real estate business to make money, you’re not here to make friends. Sometimes you’re going to make a seller mad and they’re going to get nasty with you. But you have to push through to get those deals done.Fortunately, there are ways to go about your sales and marketing without being a jerk, and in this episode, I'll show you how it’s done. Sometimes, sellers just need time to cook. They need time to think about your offer or go get a second opinion. Many times, they’ll come back three to six months later and change their mind. So don’t be afraid to keep going. If you haven’t made somebody mad by noon, then your offers are too high.What’s Inside:—How to master sales and marketing without being a jerk.—Why you shouldn’t fear rejection from sellers.—How to handle angry sellers.

1 Simple Trick to Overcome Analysis Paralysis » REI In Your Car » 1161

On my drive today, I was thinking about the importance of making decisions, especially when it comes to making offers. Many people are afraid to make mistakes, and I see this happen a lot with new investors. It’s easy to get stuck in analysis paralysis, trying to anticipate things but then it prevents you from taking action and closing deals. I’m going to give you a real simple formula to follow in case you’re struggling with this, along with some examples.With vacant land, it’s common to see prices that are listed high, so you need to validate the number. When you’re looking at your numbers and the data and you’re getting confused, pick the lower or higher number based on what you’re trying to do. If you’re looking at a house and are assessing the number of repairs needed, the higher number of your estimate is going to be the more conservative one. And with land, it’s often going to be the lower one. Remember, you make a profit when you buy, not when you sell. Don’t be afraid to get rejected on your offers. It’s all just a numbers game, so the more you get out there, the more you learn and the more deals you’ll wind up doing.What’s Inside:—A simple formula to use to get out of offer analysis paralysis.—Why you should always choose the more conservative price when making an offer.—Why you shouldn’t be afraid of your offers being rejected.

When you want to quit your job, whether it’s in a few months or a few years, you have to spend some time preparing. But you also have to start taking massive action. It’s easy to get stuck in the rut of spending a ton of money on coaching and courses, but never put anything into practice. If you want to succeed in this business, you have to be willing to make mistakes so you can learn from them. The people that do the best are the ones who pick themselves up and keep trying.Even though vacant land deals can be fairly easy to do, you’ll still need to spend time building up a portfolio that’s going to take the place of your job’s income. If you want to quit your job in a few months, the best way to do it is through wholesaling.

Do You Really Need More Leads? » REI In Your Car » Episode 1133

Gavin and I were talking about marketing in our recent boot camp and if you’re a real estate investor, you know that everybody always wants more leads. They feel like that’s the answer to every problem. But I’m here to tell you that maybe you don’t need more leads. Maybe you just need to better manage the leads that you have. Most investors would generate more business simply by doing better follow-up on their existing leads and making more than one offer to sellers.The truth is that 75-85% of your deals are going to come from follow-up. If you’re trashing leads after talking to a seller once, you could be throwing money out the window. Asking sellers the right questions helps you uncover additional opportunities. You might be able to throw out an option that works for them, like listing their property with an agent. You should be sending an offer to every seller lead that comes in and makes multiple offers. Most of the time, real estate investors don’t have a lead problem, they have a lead management problem.What’s Inside:—Why following up on existing leads gets you more offers.—Why you should send multiple offers to every lead.—How does good follow-up set you apart in a competitive market.

Marketing That Is Working in the Business Today with Gavin Timms » Episode 1125

Marketing is one of the key pillars of a real estate business and it’s important to figure out which strategies work best for you. Strategies can be broken down into either proactive or reactive approaches. Cold calling and texting are solid examples of proactive outreach. Passive strategies like Facebook pay-per-click (PPC) and direct mail are considered reactive strategies. Whether you farm out the work to a VA or you do it yourself, the most important thing is that it gets done. In real estate, marketing keeps feeding the machine, so you have a constant flow of leads and opportunities.Many people are experiencing success with direct mail, but response rates depend largely on your targeted location. Texting is another popular strategy, but new laws may make outreach a bit more difficult and deliverability rates can be inconsistent at times. The recent changes to Facebook PPC have led folks to move towards casting a nationwide net instead of targeting specific regions. No matter which strategy you choose, make sure you’re tracking your KPIs so you can do more of what works and get rid of what doesn’t. Being able to pivot quickly directly influences your success.What’s Inside:—Examples of proactive and reactive marketing strategies.—How Gavin built his cold calling strategy and how he keeps it running.—The pros and cons of using texting, direct mail, and Facebook PPC.

Buy Real Estate Without Using Your Own Money with Gavin Timms » Episode 1122

It’s a misconception to think you can’t get into real estate without investing your own money. Many people start off investing with money from others, specifically from private money or hard lenders, by double closing, or with transactional funding. Being able to invest with outside money requires a solid network. People don’t lend money to those they don’t trust, so work hard on building up your connections and rapport with those who can help you.After you’ve established a strong network, money becomes available everywhere. When you’re in a trustworthy business relationship with a lender, over time, they will lend to you without needing to know every detail of your investment plan. They’ll see your consistent wins, which is often also a win for them. You never know when you’re going to meet a lender who could change your life, so always be ready to talk. Leads always come from the most unexpected places. Taking the time to build out your network provides you with more power to discover and lock in top deals.What’s Inside:—Three ways to get money on your side. —How to invest in real estate without using your own money. —Why networking puts you in a position of power.

How To Increase the Value of Land Without Ever Touching It » Episode 1120

For the last 15 years, Mike Marshall has been working in the land development side of real estate, specifically within land use entitlements. Entitlements are the first step in the development process, before the engineering and building permit phases. Essentially, entitlements are a set of approvals granted for a certain piece of property. Aspects that are included in entitlements are things like zoning, land use, architecture, and environmental review. Mike and his team work to change the entitlements of a property to make a piece of land more valuable. This is extremely attractive to developers who would much rather buy land that’s already been through the process instead of spending the time and resources to do it themselves.When it comes to vacant land and entitlements, Mike says land on the urban fringe of an area is the sweet spot. Buying land and taking the time to add entitlements significantly increases its value without ever having set foot on it. Mike shares his tips on how to build out a strategy and marketing plan for land after it’s been through entitlement.

Buy By The Ranch, Sell By The Pasture with Trevor Probandt » Episode 1112

Trevor Probandt and his family are no strangers to vacant land deals. They’ve been doing them in Texas since the 90s. His strategy of buying big ranches and subdividing them has earned them a ton of money over the years. Trevor focuses mainly on big deals but does smaller ones and leverages owner financing to bring in cash flow. When subdividing properties, he lets the land dictate how it gets chopped up and factors in things like roads, fencing, and water wells.Trevor makes unaffordable ranches affordable through subdivision and forces depreciation. The average size pasture he works with is anywhere between 150 to 400 acres. The closer the land is too large populations, the smaller the divisions. In today’s uncertain times, people are looking for safety and serenity through owning their own land. Trevor’s goal for the next year or so is to delegate some of the smaller deals, as there are some massive opportunities on parcels under $100K.

What On Earth Are "Novations" And Why Is Everyone Talking About Them? » Episode 1102

Novations are gaining traction and a lot of people are talking about them these days. I didn’t know what they were until a few months ago, so I wanted to bring Corey Geary on to explain to them because he’s an expert. He’s perfected the strategy for these types of deals and leads what he calls the “Novation Nation”. You can even get started with novations by using old leads and potentially make more than you would in a traditional wholesaling deal.Corey started out doing fixes and flips and decided to jump into novations after being in a few masterminds. People were scaling their businesses nationwide, and Corey was able to turn his local business into a national one as well. A novation is essentially a replacement of contracts, where you act on behalf of the seller and “novate” the contract to the end buyer. Corey lists his novations on the MLS to retail buyers.Although he’s made some mistakes along the way, Corey now teaches his novation strategy to others. Check out to learn more about this program.What’s Inside:—Why Corey decided to get into novations and how he built his business.—The 7 steps to 7 figures with novations.—Common seller objections to novations and how to get around them.

Clint uses owner financing which generates a steady revenue stream. It’s very rare that a vacant land deal goes bad, which is a great reason to add this strategy into your portfolio.What’s Inside:—How Clint built Learn.Land.—Clint’s strategies for making $50K per month.—Why owner financing works for vacant land deals.—Resources and websites Clint uses in his business.

M.A.D. Bootcamp Coaching Offer

Wow! We just came back from our 2-day virtual event called the M.A.D. Bootcamp where Gavin and I taught Marketing, Automation, and Delegation. The little back story why we did this bootcamp, two weeks ago, we did a New Market Challenge. And 9 days after the challenge, we documented everything we did for marketing and nurturing the leads we got. Gavin went into the housing market and I went into the vacant land market.A week after the challenge, I paid a company to send out our direct mail. And last I checked today, we’re at a 2% response rate. Now, to put that in context, when you’re in a super-competitive housing market, you’re lucky enough to get a 0.5% - 1% response rate and we’re predicting this will go up to about 3-4% response rate by the time the campaign finishes.By the time the bootcamp started, I literally got a seller to say ‘Yes’! That ‘Yes’ didn’t come through but we got more contracts the following days! So, I have 2 properties under contract and have about 4 more who have said ‘yes’ but are still being smoothed out.It's crazy that we’re sitting on at least 4 contracts in two different markets because of this challenge and I’ve only spent about $1800 in direct mail. 2 out of those are vacant land deals that will be under owner financing and will bring about $1000 in passive income per month for the next 5 years!Now, why am I sharing this? A lot of people have a hard time starting their real estate investing business because they don’t know where and how to start with the technical stuff with Marketing, Automation, and Delegation. Great news! Our team can do that for you! We’re offering a M.A.D. Bootcamp Coaching opportunity where you pick the county, we’ll pull the list, we’ll do the direct mail for you, we’ll help you price it, we’ll set up Freedomsoft and all you have to do is to click a few buttons to send them an offer through text message!This coaching offer is one of the best offers Gavin and I came up with after this bootcamp. We’ll set up everything for you, run your first campaign, give you access to our normal regular coaching calls, direct Voxer access to me for 60 days, access to our mastermind group and we’ll partner with you on deals!Most coaches would offer this for $50k or to the least $10k. We’re offering it at $7500 which you can pay in split payments. This is the only coaching program where we do everything FOR you and WITH you.So, if you want to get into the business faster and get everything set up for you, go to What’s Inside: —Deals we got from the New Market Challenge and MAD Bootcamp. —New coaching offer where we do everything FOR you and WITH you. —What to expect in the coaching offer.

REI Secrets Series » Would You Buy This Vacant Lot That Cash Flows 58% CCR??

Today’s REI Secrets episode is special. I’ve done houses for many years since 2008 and lease-option deals have been my bread and butter. But when 2022 came in, I decided that I will be talking more about vacant land deals. I’ve been doing this for a few years now – started with my teenage sons on a part-time basis. It’s never been the focus of my business but recently, I’ve put more attention to it, have been doing more of it, and am including it full-time in my business.In the last few years, two teenage boys have been involved in over $150k of profits in vacant land deals that we’ve done in a super PART-TIME basis. Can you imagine how much more that would be if we did it full-time?In one episode, I interviewed a student of mine and to date, he’s generating over $10k a month in passive income from his notes on vacant land deals. It makes sense to give this more attention. So, we’re going to start investing more in vacant land for cashflow inside of our raw self-directed IRAs. And looking at the numbers, I’m just amazed at how much money this can make if we mix flipping and holding and selling these vacant land notes on terms. And we’re talking about the low-end 50% cash-on-cash return when you sell them on owner financing.In this episode, I show you what I look for when looking for these vacant lots. I share how I pick the county, find vacant lands in the county I selected and what criteria I look at to determine which ones are good to pursue. So, in line with this, I am doing a 2-day bootcamp with Gavin Timms where I dive in deep and teach all this stuff.The MAD Bootcamp happens on Feb 11th and 12th; it costs a minimal amount of $97 but you get a value of over $8,000 in REI business knowledge. We will teach you everything you need to know about Marketing, Automation and Delegation which I think are the 3 keys to success in this business. I will be teaching vacant land strategies and Gavin will be teaching strategies for houses.In this 2-day live virtual event, we’ll be opening up our playbook and show you everything we do step-by-step. It’s going to be amazing and packed with gold nuggets you and your real estate investing business will be thankful for.Go to NOW!What’s Inside: —The money-making potential of vacant land deals. —Brief overview of how I find vacant land deals. —My criteria for choosing which vacant lands to pursue. —What to expect on my 2-day MAD Bootcamp with Gavin Timms.

35K Check Proves You Should Never Give Up! with Gavin Timms & Pepe Campos » Episode 1096

Gavin talks to Pepe Campos, a client who recently had success with a great deal. Pepe was a civil engineer before getting into real estate and becoming interested in lease options. He wanted to learn as much as he could and he heard about Gavin’s marketing systems, so he decided to work with him one on one. Pepe is a super consistent guy and this recent deal he just did wouldn’t have been able to happen without his persistence and follow-through.The first option you layout on the table might not work for your seller or buyer. This is where you have to get creative with your strategy and be able to easily pivot to a plan B. Pepe made $35,000 on an assignment after paying a seller on a creative deal that had been on the market for 6 months and didn’t sell. He was able to do this because he built a solid rapport with the owner in this deal. Pepe stayed honest when presenting different creative financing alternatives, which fostered an important sense of trust.Too many people today want instant gratification and money for doing little to no work. In real estate, that just won’t happen, as you hear me talk about all the time. If you’re just starting out, getting in the right mindset, staying focused, and implementing what you learn will get you results as long as you stick with it. Pepe’s story is a great example of someone who followed our formula and is experiencing real success.What’s Inside:—Why consistency is important when finding and closing deals.—How creating trust and building rapport can go a long way.—Why it pays to stay motivated and get out of your comfort zone.

The Fastest Path To Cash - Find The Buyers First » Episode 1095

My friend Justin Van Riper joins me today as we discuss a wholesaling strategy that changed my life. Justin is one of the most active guys in the St. Louis real estate market. Finding the buyers first really is the fastest path to making life-changing money. It’s always easier to sell buyers what they want than to try to sell them what you have.Justin got started in real estate about ten years ago. He began by running his business with a team and a lot of overhead costs, especially when it came to marketing. After shifting his focus to nurturing his existing buyer relationships and building up his email list, things started to change. Through this new strategy, he was able to drastically reduce his overhead costs, make more money, and work way fewer hours. Justin says he only spends a couple of hours a day working on his business, and he does a lot of it while on vacation.Head to the website below for more details on an upcoming webinar hosted by me and Justin. We’ll be showing you how to create a real estate business that allows you to live the lifestyle you want to live. What’s Inside:—How Justin was able to reduce his business costs and working hours by focusing on nurturing his buyer relationships.—Examples of some of Justin’s recent deals and how he did them.—Why out of state buyers can be more lucrative than local buyers.—Info on an upcoming webinar hosted by Joe and Justin.

Pay Off Your Student Loans from Deals » REI In Your Car » Episode 1094

I recently heard that the moratorium on student loan payments was extended until May when it was supposed to expire at the end of January. The average student loan debt is about 30 grand, with the average monthly payment being somewhere around $400. Eventually, they’re going to come due, and we’ll have to face a day of reckoning. Even if they forgive the debt for everyone, we’re going to pay for it in some way, whether it's through inflation or higher taxes.One of the best ways to pay down student loan debt is by doing real estate deals. Strategies like lease options can get you regular monthly cash flow that you can turn right around and put towards your payments. Relying on the government or stressing out because you don’t have enough money takes a toll, but real estate deals can help with that burden. It can also help you avoid student debt altogether if you finance your dreams with deals instead of borrowing.What’s Inside:—Why you should avoid student loan debt.—How to use real estate deals to pay off debt.

Racism & Fair Housing - Is It Still A Problem And What Can We Do About It? » Episode 1093

Pastor Brent Roam and entrepreneur John Kiehl are helping St. Louis families achieve their dream of owning their own homes. Working hard to close the housing inequality gap, their goal is to ultimately eliminate race as a factor in homeownership. Although the Fair Housing Act of 1968 officially ended legal housing discrimination, much of the damage had already been done, placing black communities at a huge disadvantage. Pockets of deep poverty were created, and the consequences of these policies continue to impact millions of African Americans to this day.Brent and John came up with a solid plan to help black families achieve personal and generational wealth that can easily be repeated across the country. They share their successes and why they feel so strongly about their mission. Their organization, FAM, stands for “fair access to mortgage”, but also reminds the people they work with that they’re going to be like family to them throughout the entire process.Learn more about Brent, John, and how they’re transforming St. Louis by visiting FAM’s website at’s Inside:—How racism in the housing market still affects us today.—What real estate investors can do to help or start organizations like FAM.—How the FAM organization has helped St. Louis families achieve homeownership.

My New Strategy Going Into 2022 » REI In Your Car » Episode 1092

Did you know that you can make millions of dollars inside of a self-directed IRA, flipping vacant land? Part of my strategy going into 2022 is to spend more time on vacant land deals. When you do one of these deals with owner financing, it can generate long-term cash flow in the form of monthly payments. If you use a self-directed IRA, when you do it the right way and are familiar with all the rules, you’re able to use the profits generated for real estate-related business expenses. The returns also have a compounding effect, which can take off on an exponential curve over time.I’m excited for 2022 and the future of our market, no matter what’s going on in the outside world. Don’t forget to check out our New Market Challenge that starts next week, January 24th. Head to for all the details.What’s Inside:—How to do deals inside of a self-directed IRA.—How vacant land deals can generate monthly income through owner financing.—Information on our upcoming New Market Challenge.

Today’s special guest is a student of mine who’s been flipping vacant land. He’s now making around $10K a month in passive income from his deals. He started out his career working for his dad, and then got into real estate and decided to go in on it full time, with some fantastic support from his wife. He began by flipping houses, but once he got introduced to the land, he realized that he could meet his financial goals without the hassles and pitfalls of dealing with tenants, rentals, etc. By 2020, Phil decided to focus only on land deals.Phil’s marketing strategy was a huge part of why he’s been so successful. Many people think that a certain area is too competitive and oversaturated and will avoid it thinking there’s no opportunity for them. A lot of times, your mailer might be the one thing that makes a seller finally want to sell, even though someone else had already bugged them with their own marketing. Phil uses texting as a part of his strategy and also has a small team with a VA helping him out. We talk about how he targets his areas and the tools he uses for research.If you want to get in touch with Phil directly, send him a message on Facebook or shoot him an email at the address below.What’s Inside:—The advantages of vacant land deals over housing.—How Phil’s marketing strategy helped him generate over 10K a month in passive income.—Tools to use to target vacant land opportunities.

REI Secrets » Brilliant at The Basics Part 4 » Making Simple Offers

So far in this Brilliant at the Basics series, we’ve covered marketing, talking to sellers, and why it’s so important to dive in and take massive, imperfect action. Today, we’re going to focus on what it takes to make simple offers. With the right tools, the process is pretty simple, it just takes confidence and the discipline to stay consistent.Knowing who your buyers are making it much easier for you to sell. Once you know what they’re looking for, you can sell them what they want instead of trying to sell them what you have. Focusing on the median price range, that middle of the bell curve is going to be better than trying to focus on extremes because the buyer pools in those areas is relatively small. I’ll walk you through several examples of how to find properties, the tools you can use to research, and how to put together offers that make sense.You’re never going to have it all figured out and you don’t need to in order to be successful. Fear of failure and making mistakes can stop you from making your dreams come true. Once you accept that you’ll stumble along the way as you learn, you’ll gain more confidence in yourself. You’re going to make it.What's Inside:—Why it’s important to know who your buyers are and what they want.—How to find the top zip codes in a county.—Examples of how to put together a simple offer.

Go Ahead And Quit Now If You Have This Attitude » REI In Your Car » Episode 1089

How serious are you about starting a real estate business? Are you going to quit when it gets hard? Are you treating it like a hobby, throwing in the towel after a month of dabbling because you’re not seeing results? If that’s your attitude, then you should just quit now.I know from my own experience that if you want to make money in real estate, you have to be committed. Whenever I struggled, it was because of a lack of commitment – it had nothing to do with what the market was like or my marketing strategy not working. To be able to stay in the game and stay motivated, you have to build momentum, which only comes when you put things into place and execute on your plan consistently.Surrounding yourself with the right people makes all the difference. There are a lot of folks out there who will be more than happy to tell you all of the reasons why real estate is hard or it’s a scam. Don’t listen to the naysayers. If you stay committed for at least three to six months, stick with your marketing plan, and make those offers, you’re going to do deals. What's Inside: —Why treating real estate as a hobby sets you up for failure.—Why consistency is the key to success.—Examples from clients who stuck with it and are seeing results.

From 0 to 25 Million Dollars in 4 Years Using Social Media Marketing - Krista Mashore » Episode 1088

Krista Mashore is a Social Media Marketing Master who leverages her platforms to make $1M+ every month. She’s killing it as a successful real estate and well known online coach and consultant. Krista walks the talk. She’s a master of social media and has built her millions from the ground up and defeated all the odds, which started at the age of 13 when she left home due to an abusive situation. She found herself on the streets or living in friend’s closets, until she broke the law and landed in juvy. She eventually went to a group home and then a foster home until she turned 18. All that time feeling like she would never be good enough and always be an outcast. But years later after finding out her husband had an affair, her accounts drained of cash, and with two little girls she refused to let bounce from home to home like she did growing and mortgage to pay, she knew she had to make it happen.So she hunkered down, learned the skills, and invested in her real estate business, selling 69 homes that first year and over 100 nearly every year since. She’s generated $25M by leveraging Social Media Marketing and paying attention to the trends. When she noticed houses depreciated 65%, she became a foreclosure specialist and became known as the foreclosure queen. And when the market turned around, so did she by using social media marketing to take her title from foreclosure queen to your favorite real estate agent by adding value and changing how she is seen online. Krista has harnessed the power of watching for change and being a student of what is working now. And what is ALWAYS working? Content Marketing. Adding value and becoming known as the trustworthy expert in your field. Krista says, no matter what your business is, you must be a marketer first. You need to connect with your people on a deeper level, add value, and show up where they are because on average people will research something around 179 days prior to making a decision and you want to be that familiar face they know and trust when that time comes. Her key to success online is to commit to consistently producing content correctly online. It is the genius behind her social media and her ad strategies. Ultimately, people want to buy or work with someone who is familiar to them and you do that by consistently showing up in their feeds and adding value.What’s Inside:—Krista’s incredible story about her journey from homelessness, juvy, and the foster system to highly successful business owner and content marketing guru.—How to create relationships with strangers on social media so they know, like and trust you and will buy from you.—How to establish yourself as the expert in your industry
