What do you want to achieve in business? In fact, why did you start your business in the first place? And, more importantly, why did you choose the real estate industry? If you’re like everyone else, it’s because you wanted to grow your income. You still do. Maybe you’d like to supplement or even replace what you’re currently making. You can do both. In fact, if you’re eager to give yourself a raise this year, I’ll show you how. I’ll give you a short blueprint to follow that will help you grow your income anywhere between two to ten times its current value. So,...

Before we managed to scale our business to what it is today, we started out as a family company buying and selling. We then moved into the coaching and mentoring business later on. But before we became the authority in our niche, it took a lot of work. Over the years, we produced a couple of courses and expanded our network of Associates around the country. We also traveled to speaking engagements, did webinars, and even shared our knowledge in a podcast. All of these things combined, along with the good feedback, helped us become the authority. And without sugarcoating it, it...

Is a recession on the horizon or not? Who’s to say? No one really knows the answer. But that doesn’t stop the media from sending everyone into a frenzy. After all, all you hear on the news these days is talk about the recession. It’s no wonder that perhaps you, like many other real estate investors, feel a certain unease about the real estate market. When people wonder what the market will look like, they’re missing the point. It’s because there is no “one market”. For instance, you have different geographic areas and not all of them perform the same across the...

When you’re an expert in only one area, uncertainty and an ever-evolving environment can feel scary. The real estate market constantly changes after all. And if you’re focused on wholesale and rehabs as your niche, this raises some questions. Will rehabs be as popular when the market dives or construction sinks? How hot is it now? And the ever-popular – should you try to become an expert in another niche, or is staying in your box the best thing for you? With this line of thinking, you might be convinced that the most logical move is to focus on something else. That’s not...

I have something controversial to say. It might just be my opinion, but I think you'll see what I mean by the end of this… There is no such thing as a "self-made" person. (And I'm a perfect example.) I didn't come from money, and I didn't get involved in real estate until later in life. A lot of people might describe me as a "self-made" man because I went from being a bartender and I worked my way up the ladder to get where I am today. I put a lot of hard work in to get to where I am…...

We love structuring owner financing deals whenever possible because of the massive profit potential. When you're making principal only payments with a free and clear house, the numbers climb quickly — and, as a result, we often get a lot of questions about how these deals work and how we acquire them. So, in this post, we're going to cover some of our most frequently asked questions and provide you with a simple formula that will all but guarantee your next owner financing deal comes in over six figures. If you're looking for an in-depth explanation of how these deals work, that's...

As with most businesses, generating leads is an important part of the terms (creative financing) niche. If you can't generate leads, you'll never be able to take on new deals. We have a number of tried and tested systems for generating leads that work nine times out of ten. But what happens when those systems dry up? Or there's a lull in the market for whatever reason which typically is that it’s a hotter than normal market for sellers and they’re moving they're properties more readily. The simple answer is… You need backup sources! Here's what we do. Our primary sources We have...

A lot of people like to start their day with an easy task so they can knock out something small and get moving. I'm here to put an end to that. It's time for each and every one of us to start doing the hard things first. Why? Because that's when we have the most energy and focus. We have the ability to change the entire day by getting a major win first thing in the morning. That moves us forward and we can keep it going throughout the day. But more importantly, it means that we are always going to get the...

John Alexandrov was an attorney in Massachusetts for over 30 years. He was best known as a leader, providing business legal services to entrepreneurs and business owners. John represented hundreds of business owners and entrepreneurs, and he was as well known for his business skills as he was for his legal skills. Capable in all aspects of a business’s legal needs, he brought real-life business experience to the table as an entrepreneur and business owner himself. At the same time, John knew how to act decisively, lead, guide, and manage a team of C-level officers in any company to the effective...

We tend to focus on nice, move-in-ready homes that don't need significant repairs or maintenance—but that doesn't mean repairs are out of the question or uncommon. Sometimes there are a few underlying issues with a home, and that shouldn't stop you from buying it on terms. If you do find yourself with a property that needs a few repairs, here's how we recommend handling it. Let's say you find a nice, move-in-ready home but find out that the chimney needs some repairs. (This is an actual situation that occurred recently with one of our Associates.) There are essentially three questions that you...
