Okay guys, meet my mentor, Jack Bosch at one of his upcoming live seminars where he pours his heart out into training you on his Land Profit Generator land investing system for three solid days.  If you haven’t yet purchased the training program but want to check it out first to see if it’s a good fit for you, come!  Jack even offers a money back guarantee if the seminar doesn’t exceed your expectations!

I’ve been to many real estate seminars over the years and this is sincerely the best in my opinion.  Jack teaches everything from beginning to end and you will have the opportunity to get your questions answered.  And, one of the other great benefits is you will be able to network with other land investors for three days!

Details:  Orlando Seminar:  Sept. 10-12, 2010.   Los Angeles Seminar:  Oct. 8-10, 2010. Reserve your seats HERE for either seminar before they fill up!

I plan to attend both seminars and I look forward to meeting you.  Check out my most popular articles on this awesome real estate investing niche.

Cheers,

Last week, Steve Love, Director IRCA Los Angeles, interviewed me on his ‘Prosperity Through Real Estate’ show.   We discussed all aspects of land investing, how this business works and why I love it so much.  You can check out our discussion, courtesy of internet radio www.healthylife.net.

Cheers,

Whenever I talk about my passion (land investing), I am often asked the same questions, so I thought this would be a good topic for a blog post.  Here are the Top 10 most frequently asked questions and my responses:

1. Does this really work? Yes.  If you work at it.  If the information sits on the shelf untouched, then it obviously won’t.  If you treat it like a business and consistently take efforts to move it forward, it definitely works and you can read my previous blog post for more information about my own successes.

2. How much money does it take to get started? This depends on you, your goals, and available funds.  If you are strapped financially you might want to begin by assigning contracts which involves you finding a seller and a buyer and collecting a fee for assigning the contract by putting the two people together.  For this, you really only need to pay for the cost of  the mailing, but for credibility purposes I would also recommend having an 800 phone number and a basic ‘buying’ website for people to contact you and both of these can be accomplished for less than $20.00/month.   Once you have some capital to work with you can begin to buy properties outright and then turn them around for sale.

3. Is it as easy as it seems? The steps are easy but there are many and if you are working the business alone and part time (like me), it can feel overwhelming at times.  What I recommend is to take it one step at a time and work the business sequentially.  For instance, learn how to do first things first…buy a property (get 800#, website, list, mail, answer calls, analyze/make offers, perform due diligence, go through escrow process, understand title report, etc.), and then sell a property (yourself vs hire someone vs hybrid, marketing, documents, loan servicing, etc.).   You will learn the details along the way as you go through your first cycle so don’t get overwhelmed.  Just keep moving through the process and it will all make sense.  Get in line and stay in line!

4. How do you get data records so you can send mailings? There are many ways, but my two favorite ways are to partner with a good escrow/title company so they can provide you with online access to extract your own data (“farms”), and they can also provide you with access to property profile reports for a property you are considering purchasing.  Profile reports contain APN, legal description, owner info, assessed value, property size, plat maps, neighbors, and comps if there are any.   Another favorite way is to utilize inexpensive paid online services to extract data and the extra benefit of these services is you are able to find an aerial view of your property by APN and use that image in your online marketing.  See my post for a great online resource.

5. I don’t have any real estate experience, can I do this? Yes.  If you can follow directions, and not be afraid to ask questions along the way of the business partners you will be working with (escrow/title companies, realtors, fellow investors/mentors, etc.), and you are willing to “pull the trigger” when it comes time to making a purchase, you can do this with no prior real estate experience.

6. How much money can I expect to make? Though I get asked this question a lot, it’s one that really can’t be answered because again, that depends upon the effort that each person puts in.  If you buy a property right and sell it right you will make money but those numbers depend on you, your ambitions, your risk tolerance, your price range, etc.  See my own profit margins.

7. How easy is it to sell a property once you own it? This again depends upon your strategy for selling.  If you simply list your property with a realtor for retail price that could take a very long time.  However, if you offer competitive pricing and utilize online marketing such as Craig’s List, Postlets, Backpage, Landflip, Landwatch, Kijiji, etc., and supplement that with social media such as Twitter, Facebook and utilize a squeeze page to build a buyer’s list for email marketing then your audience is significantly broadened which increases your liklihood for a faster sale.

8. Where do I start – what’s first? 5 easy steps to prepare to make a purchase:  1) Pick a company name (even if it’s a temporary DBA name) so you can use it in your marketing; 2) Get an 800 # to make it easy for people to call you; 3) Set up a simple ‘buying’ website for people to easily answer questions about their property; 4) Get a List; 5) Mail.  Then prepare to answer the phone!  And, if you plan to purchase properties in an LLC, you might want to get that process started while you are doing the first 5 steps.

9.  How much time do you need to spend working at this business? This is a difficult question and really only one that you can answer because it’s based on your drive, ambition, and goals.  I have a full time job and have been able to successfully work this business on nights and weekends.

10. How can I get further help? Jack Bosch recently launched brand new coaching programs!  See my blog post to find out more.

In a nutshell, here’s the system:
1. Buy land for pennies on the dollar
2.  Buy directly from Owners (not through a tax sale)
3.  Buy free and clear properties (some don’t even have back taxes owed)
4.  Pay 5% – 25% of market value
5.  Sell quickly for multiples
6.  Sell with owner-financing and you’ve got passive income (my favorite)

Jack has personally bought and sold over 5,500 properties, and he sells 30-40 properties per month consistently.

Why Land? No Tenants!  No Toilets!  No Termites! It can’t be stolen or vandalized and there is virtually no maintenance.

Show Me the Money! Renee’s Story….

Jack (2nd from Left), Reneé (navy shirt) - Platinum Group Field Trip - 5/09

Okay, here are the details of my first property sale and PROOF to show you that Jack Bosch’s Land Profit Formula / Land for Pennies / Land Profit Generator system works!  Here’s a Jack Bosch student testimonial – apply these techniques and YOU can get out of the rat race!

Reneé Story: Let me begin by saying I’m probably like many other real estate investors.  I’ve purchased TONS of books and tapes (that sit on the shelf for the most part), I’ve attened MANY seminars, and spent LOTS OF MONEY on top name/company products and coaches.

What I generally learned through all of that was:  “Yuck.  I don’t want to do any of those strategies”. I didn’t want to rehab homes, OR do sandwhich lease options OR be a note buyer OR buy mobile homes, OR do short sales OR foreclosures. So what was left? I thought about investing in tax liens/deeds so that indirectly lead me to Jack Bosch.

I first learned of Jack Bosch’s Land Profit Formula home study course about this time last year.  I purchased his program and diligently listened to his CD’s, then I went to his free weekend seminar in Phoenix, AZ to get an even closer look, and there I purchased his Platinum Membership which was open to 15 (I think) students and provided closer access to Jack and included field trips (see above picture).

Throughout this first year I have been setting up the “infrastructure” of my new business (established an LLC/bank account, websites, learned how to mail-merge, found an awesome title rep who gave me access to property reports, learned about social networking, and a tiny bit about internet marketing (SO much to learn), networked with other investors (which by the way is key – don’t be afraid to talk to one another and share information!)

My Statistics: I’m a process-oriented person so I diligently followed Jack’s steps.  Here are my personal results while working at this part-time (I have a full time job):

  • I mailed approx. 900 letters to California property owners in San Bernardino & San Diego counties
  • I received approx 56 call backs, or about a 6% response rate from owners who wanted me to make them an offer
  • I sent out approx  44 offers
  • I received 6 acceptances (it’s really shocking and exciting to have a signed sales agreement show up in your mail box!)
  • I ended up closing on only 2 of the 6 acceptances because further due diligence showed that I had either over-offered, or the property was in a wash or something)
  • I paid less than $3,700 for my first property and it is on the market for $9,000 so I should double my money on this one.
  • I paid less than $27,000 for my second purchase of SIX parcels totaling 53 acres.
  • I just sold two of those parcels for $60,000, and netted almost $54,000, twice the purchase price for all six! (see the check below). The remaining four parcels are on the market for $90,000.

Another way to look at my first sale:  The net of my $54,000 nearly made me whole for the entire year’s worth of expenses, including the purchase of 7 properties, setting up the LLC, educational costs, supplies/postage, travel, attorney for contract review, etc.  The sale of the remaining 5 properties will be pure profit. Exciting, huh?  I think so.

Don’t get me wrong.  This is not a “Get Rich Quick” thing.  It takes work.  But it works! As Jack points out, it’s a number’s game.  Letters = Offers = Acceptances. Learn the machine and keep the cycle going.  As Jack is famous for quoting:  Get in Line & Stay in Line! It will happen!  Persevere!

Do you know anyone who could use some extra cash in today’s tough economy?

Why Land?

Land - Dirt - Ground - Earth

Land – Dirt – Ground – Earth

The short of it is:  No Tenants!  No Toilets!  No Termites!  And, just like any other form of real estate investing, it’s all in the “buy”.  When you buy right, you make profit.  And, with the system that Jack Bosch teaches through his Land for Pennies/Land Profit Formula and completely new Land Profit Generator, you can even make land cash flow by offering owner-financing which is an awesome niche to fill because banks don’t typically like to lend on land, but you can be the bank!

If you follow Jack’s investing techniques you will make money, and there is little to no competition in land investing, especially rural land.  Jack’s technique involves finding owners who are delinquent in paying their property taxes (early, before the tax sale)…this generally means they are MOTIVATED to sell and that’s where you can find your best deals and can likely buy the property cheap!  Sending direct mail is the ticket to finding these owners and then THEY CALL YOU!

Though you can employ these same strategies in purchasing houses, land is an awesome niche because:

1) There is an abundance of it that you can purchase for pennies on the dollar

2) You don’t have to be a housing expert and know about construction, mold, termites, need an inspector, etc….you just have to do some due diligence to ensure you’re not buying a junk property.

3) There is virtually no competition with land.  Most people want houses!  And, the BEST PART is you can pay cash for the properties and not have to deal with banks and carry several mortgages.  (This works even if you only have a very small cash reserve…Jack has purchased properties for $50.00 and some people give their land away believe it or not!)

I personally love it.  This style of real investing makes sense and I can testify that it truly works!  My sister once said to me, “I don’t get it.  Why would people sell the land to you for so cheap when they could just list it with a Realtor?”  My response was, “I don’t know, but they do!”  Then later I thought about that some more and in actuality, I realized it’s a Win-Win because I am providing a service to those that don’t want the hassle of owning land that perhaps they inherited and now are “stuck” paying property taxes on.  In their mind, the property is a headache.  That’s where we investors come in.  We offer to pay them cash and close quickly and for them they are relieved of the burden of property ownership.  WIN-WIN!
