Topic: “Show me the Money!”

dollarVarious Niche Lenders & Guest Speakers

  • Short & Long Term Private Money lending
  • Hard Money- Asset based Lending

It’s important to be aware of what is out there in the marketplace as it may affect you - regardless of whether you are an investor looking to acquire properties or to pull cash out through refinancing’s, or a seller seeking to get cashed out upon the resale of one of your properties.
Join us for what promises to be a very informative meeting.

BAWB Thursday February 20th, 2014 Meeting 

Is this the Right Time to Buy? Have we really reached the bottom of the Market as other so called experts are saying? Is the worst behind us?  Is stabilization of the Marketplace now upon us as many industry experts are preaching? How long will this so called  Real Estate "recovery" run on for? What is looming over the Horizon? DO NOT MISS THIS MONTHS MEETING!

Start off the New Year Informed "listen and learn from our own industry expert"

janSpeaker: Author of Timing the Real Estate Market, Statistician, & Investor;

Robert Campbell

Topic: 2014 Housing Forecast

What Will Happen & Why

Program Director Note: Robert has spoken at our meetings in the past and has been incredibly prescient in accurately predicting California Real Estate Market trends.Don't miss his insight at this months meeting…”

***********************************************

 

The Campbell Method: A Proven Timing 
System that Tells You EXACTLY When to Buy 
and Sell Real Estate to Make Maximum Profits! 

Dear Real Estate Investor: 
Imagine for a moment how you would feel if you could predict major turning points in the real estate market.

Suppose somebody handed you a 22-year time-tested system that would tell you ahead of time when property values were going to hit a peak … and then when prices were going to hit bottom years later.

If you could anticipate these kinds of critical real estate events in advance … then not only could you make spectacular profits, but you could protect your money as well. 

Sounds pretty amazing, doesn't it?

Actually, it's not. The real estate market does signal its future intentions if you know where to look. 

Hello. My name is Robert Campbell and I wrote Timing the Real Estate Market to help both professionals and ordinary people make the most money in real estate with the least amount of risk. 

I also have my web site; www.realestatetiming.com Based on a major breakthrough in tracking and predicting real estate trends, my book reveals the real estate timing technique that I call The Campbell Method .

As far as I know, The Campbell Method is the only proven method in the world that shows how to accurately anticipate upcoming changes in your local real estate market.

What this means is that when you read Timing the Real Estate Market , you are going to learn how to make and protect your fortune in real estate in the same way that J. Paul Getty, the Rockefeller's, Warren Buffett, and other super-rich investors made their fortunes: by focusing on WHEN to buy and sell.

It's true. When it comes to making money in real estate, 
nothing beats good timing.

The reason that The Campbell Method is going to change the way you think about how to buy and sell real estate is that I share my truly remarkable discovery of five key real estate indicators. I call them Vital Signs, and they're able to predict the peaks and valleys of real estate cycles with an almost uncanny accuracy. As leading indicators to what's looming on the horizon for real estate prices, these Vital Sign indicators act like windows into the future, giving you advance notice of approaching trend changes from three to six months before they become obvious to the general public.

Author's Note: Timing the Real Estate Market is used at the University of San Diego by Professor Elaine Worzala. The class: Real Estate Investment. "The logic behind these Vital Sign indicators is air-tight," says Professor Worzala. "I'm very impressed, and my students love your book."

Copies of Timing the Real Estate Market Book will be available for purchase and autograph by Robert Campbell at the meeting.

  3. Are you a Professional?
  4. Do you live in a nice house?
  5. Do you own any property?
  6. Do you drive a car?
  7. Do you have employees?
  8. Do you invest in the market?

If you answered YES to any of the above, you're a potential target of the Urban Terrorist of the 21st Century; the "contingent fee" lawyer who can tie up your assets for years in legal proceedings.

The Solution?

REDUCE TAXES!
ACHIEVE FINANCIAL PRIVACY!
PROTECT ASSETS!

AVOID PROBATE!
BECOME JUDGEMENT PROOF!

This will be a down-to-earth, nuts and bolts class on Land Trusts and Personal Property Trust.  No, they are not the be-all and end-all entity for asset protection as some teach.  However, they are valuable entities to use in your asset protection plan and to conduct your business affairs.  

We will even have a couple of special guests, including a Trust Attorney to answer questions you may have on the topic and a Title Company representative .  We will be covering in detail the legal and tax aspects of Land Trusts and other kinds of Trusts what they really do for you and what they do not provide.  This will be a reality check!  And we will also discuss how Land Trusts fit into an overall business and investment plan. 

Even if you have been using Trust and Land Trusts for years, this class will be of value since we will also discuss particular clauses that can strengthen your Trust but they should only be used by an informed investor.  And you will be an informed investor after this class. 

We will cover practical, everyday techniques you can use to help bulletproof your assets as well as advanced strategies for use when you are ready.  You will gain insights on methods others can use to separate you from your hard earned dollars and assets, then how to legally protect yourself. 

For Example, just a few of the topics we plan to cover in detail include -

  • Myriad of Uses of the Land Trust & Personal Property Trust
  • Liability issues
  • When a Trust can owe taxes -- Complex & Simple Trusts
  • Grantor & Non-Grantor trusts and why it makes a difference
  • Land Trusts and the Due-on-Sale clause
  • Deeds into Land Trusts
  • The importance of Beneficiary Agreements
  • Trustee and fiduciary issues
  • Title holding trusts for Lease-Options and Land Contracts
  • Trusts used in estate planning
  • and much more!

 


BAWB meeting Thurs. July 18th 2013

The Myths and Misconceptions of Real Estate Investing & Insurance.

  • I have a Policy - Am I Really Protected?
  • What do I need to know when investing in Real Estate and the specific type of Insurance Policy and coverage you might need?
  • Do I have enough coverage...Do I have the right coverage?
  • Coverage and Price-What’s the difference?
  • Does my Insurance agent really understand Real Estate investing and how to properly protect me?

bc

Are you a Landlord with Rentals?, Are you in the Buy & Sell renovation business where people are working on your properties?, perhaps you own properties Titled in a Trust or some other entity type.

There is a TON of misconceptions about the various types of insurance coverage that exist in the marketplace for the Real Estate owner and investor. What covers dyou if an event happens on your property involving; fire, slip and falls, dog bite, on site injuries, wind or storm damage, earthquake, water damage, etc.

Don’t find this information out AFTER the fact- be prepared and informed.

Plan on being with us this evening to clear up some of the mystery.

SPEAKER: George Romonsky
"The Insurance Guy"

aAbout our Speaker:

George has been in the Insurance Industry for over 7 years with a background as a real estate broker for over 15 years.

Having invested in real estate over 20 years ago doing fix and flips and buy and holds himself, George realized his properties, investments, and future was not fully protected through his current Farmers Agent when he decided to become an agent.

He realized becoming an Independent Insurance Broker was the best way to provide his clients a variety of products and coverage's through multiple companies. He made his mission the education of insurance to the Real Estate Investor.

fWith George’s background as a real estate broker and prior real estate investor he brings a plethora of knowledge when it comes to your real estate investments and making sure that you have the right insurance coverage not just any coverage.

When it comes to insuring your investments, you want the competence and experience that most agents just don't have in regards to investment properties. George wants to make sure that the real estate investor has the knowledge of the products and services that are available to them in order for them to make informed Insurance decisions. When George isn’t educating Investors or working in the office he enjoys getting outdoors wake boarding, fishing and spending time with his 19 year old son.

janSpeaker: Author of Timing the Real Estate Market, Statistician, & Investor; Robert Campbell

Program Director Note: Robert has spoken at our meetings in the past and has been incredibly prescient in accurately predicting California Real Estate Market trends.Don't miss his insight at this months meeting…”

***********************************************

 


The Campbell Method: A Proven Timing 
System that Tells You EXACTLY When to Buy 
and Sell Real Estate to Make Maximum Profits! 

Dear Real Estate Investor: 
Imagine for a moment how you would feel if you could predict major turning points in the real estate market.

Suppose somebody handed you a 21-year time-tested system that would tell you ahead of time when property values were going to hit a peak … and then when prices were going to hit bottom years later.

If you could anticipate these kinds of critical real estate events in advance … then not only could you make spectacular profits, but you could protect your money as well. 

Sounds pretty amazing, doesn't it?

Actually, it's not. The real estate market does signal its future intentions if you know where to look. 

Hello. My name is Robert Campbell and I wrote Timing the Real Estate Market to help both professionals and ordinary people make the most money in real estate with the least amount of risk. 

I also have my web site; www.realestatetiming.com Based on a major breakthrough in tracking and predicting real estate trends, my book reveals the real estate timing technique that I call The Campbell Method .

As far as I know, The Campbell Method is the only proven method in the world that shows how to accurately anticipate upcoming changes in your local real estate market.

What this means is that when you read Timing the Real Estate Market , you are going to learn how to make and protect your fortune in real estate in the same way that J. Paul Getty, the Rockefellers, Warren Buffett, and other super-rich investors made their fortunes: by focusing on WHEN to buy and sell.

It's true. When it comes to making money in real estate, 
nothing beats good timing.

The reason that The Campbell Method is going to change the way you think about how to buy and sell real estate is that I share my truly remarkable discovery of five key real estate indicators. I call them Vital Signs, and they're able to predict the peaks and valleys of real estate cycles with an almost uncanny accuracy. As leading indicators to what's looming on the horizon for real estate prices, these Vital Sign indicators act like windows into the future, giving you advance notice of approaching trend changes from three to six months before they become obvious to the general public.

Author's Note: Timing the Real Estate Market is used at the University of San Diego by Professor Elaine Worzala. The class: Real Estate Investment. "The logic behind these Vital Sign indicators is air-tight," says Professor Worzala. "I'm very impressed, and my students love your book."

Copies of Timing the Real Estate Market Book will be available for purchase and autograph by Robert Campbell at the meeting.

moneyShow Me the Money! - 2012

Thursday April 19th 2012

Its a new day and age in the world of Real Estate Finance.

Proper and timely funding is the grease the "squeaky wheel" continues to need in order for properties to continue to be bought and sold and for any chance of a housing recovery to take hold.

With mortgage lending activities severely restricted and the availabiltiy of funds for both buyers and sellers limited- this months meeting involves a panel of several different lenders who offer different niche lending programs that cater to activities such as:

* Fixer Upper Loans - both from an institiutional lender standpoint and from a private money lending vantage point.

* First Time and current Home buyers FHA, VA, and Conventional financing programs.

Does Title seasoning of ownership matter?

What about the HVCC- Home Valuation Code of Condut appraisal rules?

What are the various down payment and qualifying criteria?

* Investor loan programs for the investor looking for both Purchase and also Refinance Non Owner Occupied Investor properties

*dollar Short & Long Term Private Money lending

* Hard Money- Asset based Lending

Its important to be aware of what is out there in the marketplace as it may affect you - regardless of whether you are an investor looking to acquire properties or to pull cash out through refinancings, or a seller seeking to get cashed out upon the resale of one of your properties.

janSpeaker: Author of Timing the Real Estate Market, Statistician, & Investor; Robert Campbell

Topic: 2012 Housing Forecast -What Will Happen & Why

Program Director Note: Robert has spoken at our meetings in the past and has been incredibly prescient in accurately predicting California Real Estate Market trends.Don't miss his insight at this months meeting…”

***********************************************



The Campbell Method: A Proven Timing 
System that Tells You EXACTLY When to Buy 
and Sell Real Estate to Make Maximum Profits! 

Dear Real Estate Investor: 
Imagine for a moment how you would feel if you could predict major turning points in the real estate market.

Suppose somebody handed you a 21-year time-tested system that would tell you ahead of time when property values were going to hit a peak … and then when prices were going to hit bottom years later.

If you could anticipate these kinds of critical real estate events in advance … then not only could you make spectacular profits, but you could protect your money as well. 

Sounds pretty amazing, doesn't it?

Actually, it's not. The real estate market does signal its future intentions if you know where to look. 

Hello. My name is Robert Campbell and I wrote Timing the Real Estate Market to help both professionals and ordinary people make the most money in real estate with the least amount of risk. 

I also have my web site; www.realestatetiming.com Based on a major breakthrough in tracking and predicting real estate trends, my book reveals the real estate timing technique that I call The Campbell Method .

As far as I know, The Campbell Method is the only proven method in the world that shows how to accurately anticipate upcoming changes in your local real estate market.

What this means is that when you read Timing the Real Estate Market , you are going to learn how to make and protect your fortune in real estate in the same way that J. Paul Getty, the Rockefellers, Warren Buffett, and other super-rich investors made their fortunes: by focusing on WHEN to buy and sell.

It's true. When it comes to making money in real estate, 
nothing beats good timing.

The reason that The Campbell Method is going to change the way you think about how to buy and sell real estate is that I share my truly remarkable discovery of five key real estate indicators. I call them Vital Signs, and they're able to predict the peaks and valleys of real estate cycles with an almost uncanny accuracy. As leading indicators to what's looming on the horizon for real estate prices, these Vital Sign indicators act like windows into the future, giving you advance notice of approaching trend changes from three to six months before they become obvious to the general public.

Author's Note: Timing the Real Estate Market is used at the University of San Diego by Professor Elaine Worzala. The class: Real Estate Investment. "The logic behind these Vital Sign indicators is air-tight," says Professor Worzala. "I'm very impressed, and my students love your book."

Copies of Timing the Real Estate Market will be available for purchase and autograph by Robert Campbell at the meeting.

A Bad Rap for the Mortgage & Real Estate Industry's?

The real estate and mortgage industry has gotten a bad rap, as the cause of the financial crisis of 2007-2008. Yes, there were big troubles in real estate and in mortgage lending. But the most fundamental cause of the financial crisis in 2007-2008 was not subprime mortgages, it was the $5-10 trillion repurchase (repo) market, where giant financial institutions used subprime mortgage securities as collateral to get loans. When subprime borrowers began to default, the repo lenders panicked and stopped lending to the banks. That was the credit freeze that caused the crisis in September 2008.

In other words, the crisis was not caused by property owners borrowing too much money, it was caused by giant financial institutions borrowing too much money, much of it on the repurchase market.

Why should you care about this?

Some of the new rules for property transactions are not needed, since fixing mortgages will not prevent the next financial crisis if repo lenders panic over a different kind of collateral (like Greek debt) or hear a false rumor and panic for no reason at all.

To prevent the next financial crisis, we need to settle on reforms for the repurchase market.

Economists have made some suggestions. Visit with us as we talk about them. If nothing is done, expect more turmoil.

The Campbell Method: A Proven Timing
System that Tells You EXACTLY When to Buy
and Sell Real Estate to Make Maximum Profits!

Dear Real Estate Investor:
Imagine for a moment how you would feel if you could predict major turning points in the real estate market.

Suppose somebody handed you a 21-year time-tested system that would tell you ahead of time when property values were going to hit a peak … and then when prices were going to hit bottom years later.

If you could anticipate these kinds of critical real estate events in advance … then not only could you make spectacular profits, but you could protect your money as well.

Sounds pretty amazing, doesn't it?

Actually, it's not. The real estate market does signal its future intentions if you know where to look.

Hello. My name is Robert Campbell and I wrote Timing the Real Estate Market to help both professionals and ordinary people make the most money in real estate with the least amount of risk.

I also have my web site; www.realestatetiming.com Based on a major breakthrough in tracking and predicting real estate trends, my book reveals the real estate timing technique that I call The Campbell Method .

As far as I know, The Campbell Method is the only proven method in the world that shows how to accurately anticipate upcoming changes in your local real estate market.

What this means is that when you read Timing the Real Estate Market , you are going to learn how to make – and protect – your fortune in real estate in the same way that J. Paul Getty, the Rockefellers, Warren Buffett, and other super-rich investors made their fortunes: by focusing on WHEN to buy and sell.

It's true. When it comes to making money in real estate,
nothing beats good timing.

The reason that The Campbell Method is going to change the way you think about how to buy and sell real estate is that I share my truly remarkable discovery of five key real estate indicators. I call them “Vital Signs," and they're able to predict the peaks and valleys of real estate cycles with an almost uncanny accuracy. As “leading indicators” to what's looming on the horizon for real estate prices, these Vital Sign indicators act like windows into the future, giving you advance notice of approaching trend changes from three to six months before they become obvious to the general public.

Author's Note: Timing the Real Estate Market is used at the University of San Diego by Professor Elaine Worzala. The class: Real Estate Investment. "The logic behind these Vital Sign indicators is air-tight," says Professor Worzala. "I'm very impressed, and my students love your book."

Copies of Timing the Real Estate Market will be available for purchase and autograph by Robert Campbell at the meeting.

Special Mystery Speaker

The "Japanification"
Of America!


The FED recently moved to drive down interest rates
even lower than they already are.

How will this effect our Economy and Real Estate Values?

> Few Nations in Recent History have seen a striking reversal of 
   Economic Fortune as Japan

> Japan rode to Economic dominance one of the Great speculative Stock
   Market and Real Estate Bubbles of all time in the 1980's.....only
   to see the bubbles popped in the late 1980's and early 1990's

> For nearly a generation now the Japanese nation has been trapped
   in low growth and a corrosive downward spiral of prices, 
   known as Deflation.

> Now, as the United States and other Western Nations struggle to
   recover from debt and property bubble's of their own a growing
   number of Economists are pointing to Japan as a dark vision
   of our future.

> Just as Inflation scarred a generation of Americans,
   DEFLATION has left a deep imprint on the Japanese.

Economists are now warning of the possible "Japanification" of America
- the same deflationary trap of collapsed demand that occurs when
consumers refuse to consume, corporations hold back on making
investments and banks in a tight credit market sit on cash.

Join us for this insightful discussion!

Why the Housing Market
Hasn’t Recovered…

The Eisenhower Years

From a historical standpoint many people look back at the Eisenhower years when Dwight David Eisenhower served as President for eight years from 1953 to 1961 as a “quiet” era. During Dwight’s time in office, home ownership was on the rise. The average home sold for $22,000.00. Guess where Mortgage rates were at that time?

You guessed right…. About where they are today! Mortgage interest rates were in the mid 4 % range.

A Perspective

Let’s put this into a perspective for you. The last time mortgage interest rates were this low a first class postage stamp was 3 cents, the average income in the U.S. was $3,960.00 per year, a Ford automobile cost $1,548-$2,415, bread was .17 cents a loaf, a T-bone steak was .95 cents per pound, etc. Also they had Nickel & Dime stores not Dollar stores.

Today’s home buyers are enjoying rolled back prices; sellers who are willing to pay some buyers closing costs, and interest rates at historic lows- BUT many of them are still not buying….WHY?

Four years after the housing bubble popped, the American real estate market has yet to launch a sustainable recovery. Although U.S. home prices have improved modestly since the spring of 2009—and certain regional markets have performed even better—sales and values will face renewed downward pressure later this year in the wake of the expiration of the federal home buyer tax credits. Indeed, some analysts expect the bloated inventory and sputtering demand to trigger a "double dip" housing recession, with prices possibly even slipping back below their April 2009 lows.

This disconcerting outlook has materialized despite some optimistic developments within the market. The 30-percent drop in real estate prices has helped restore affordability to a once wildly-overvalued market, putting additional consumers in position to become homeowners. Meanwhile, mortgage financing as pointed out above has grown downright cheap—with rates falling to 50-year lows.

So what's the problem then?

What's causing this stagnation in the housing recovery?

Attend this months meeting to find out why the housing market hasn't recovered, and how you as a savy investor can take advantage of the opportunities which will continue to present themselves.

Topic:

fSpecialists (hired guns)

Wikipedia states: A Specialist frequently refers to an expert in a profession.

There are certain incidents or problems which often seem to crop up when trying to buy or sell Real Property where an escrow is involved.

These might involve title flaws, occupancy, ingress and egress issues, boundary lines, and Permit, Pest, Roof, & Home inspections, dealing with the new lead paint rules and so on….

Knowing who you can contact as a so called "Specialist" can often keep the escrow Alive and an actual closing together versus your deal falling apart.

4This months meeting will introduce you several local specialists (or Hired Guns as we like to refer to them as) who can assist you when that moment arrives and you need to seek out their help!

BAWB March 18th, 2010 Meeting

After the Fall: Saving capitalism from Wall Street—and Washington

SPEAKER: Author, Nicole Gelinas

 

aBut it doesn’t have to be this way.

You see the government gradually adopted a "too big to fail" policy for the largest or most complex financial companies, saving lenders to failing firms from losses. As a result, these companies became impervious to the vital market discipline that the threat of loss provides.

Adding to the problem, Wall Street created financial instruments that escaped other reasonable limits, including gentle constraints on speculative borrowing and requirements for the disclosure of important facts.

The financial industry eventually posed an untenable risk to the economy—a risk that culminated in the trillions of dollars' worth of government bailouts and guarantees that Washington scrambled starting in late 2008.

Even as banks and markets seem to heal, lenders to financial companies continue to understand that the government would protect them in the future if necessary. This implicit guarantee harms economic growth, because it forces good companies to compete against bad.

History and recent events make clear what Washington must do.

First, policymakers must reintroduce market discipline to the financial world. They can do so by re-creating a credible, consistent way in which big financial companies can fail, with lenders taking their warranted losses. Second, policymakers can reapply prudent financial regulations so that markets, and the economy, can better withstand inevitable excesses of optimism and pessimism. Sensible regulations have worked well in the past and can work well again.

Don't miss this incredibly informative meeting!

About Nicole Gelinas:

Nicole Gelinas is the Searle Freedom Trust Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor of City Journal. Gelinas writes on urban economics and finance, municipal and corporate finance, business issues, and crime. She is a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and a member of the New York Society of Securities Analysts.

Copies of her book will be available for purchase and autograph at the meeting.

In After the Fall, Nicole Gelinas shows how the financial crisis that began in 2008 was not a failure of markets, but a failure of government to understand its proper role in markets.

She explains how Washington helped bring on the economic crisis in two ways: through its "too big to fail" policy, and by its failure to apply proven, prudent regulatory principles to modern financial markets and firms. In the absence of market discipline and prudent regulation, the government is now deciding which companies and people should receive investment capital, and on what terms—harming our economic competitiveness.

A TWO (2) PART MEETING YOU MUST NOT MISS! sgplunderPART # 1 - Author & CalWatchdog's Editor in Chief; Steven GreenhutAuthor of the Book:“Plunder! How Public Employee Unions are Raiding Treasuries, Controlling Our Lives and Bankrupting the Nation.”His Op-Ed article for the Wall Street Journal; "Plundering California" is a must read. Here is the link:http://liberty.pacificresearch.org/press/plundering-california

  • The 2010 California Budget shortfall is projected to be $20B or more!
  • This Shortfall is larger than the entire state budgets of all but a handful of other States
  • The California Legislature continues to use budget gimmicks, including unrealistic assumptions of new revenue and accounting tricks employed to effectively borrow from future year.
  • California as a state enacted the largest tax increase ever imposed by any statehouse in the history of America. The results were predictable: Like the tax increase of 1991, California plunged deeper into recession and produced less revenue.
  • The inability of politicians to restrain their spending of taxpayer dollars is the direct result of the forceful application of political power. And, in California, there are no greater political influences than thepublic employee unions.

To make a difference, lovers of liberty ought not only to buy Steven Greenhut’s book, but buy several copies to distribute to friends and family.

To win the battle, we have to educate voters and Plunder! will not only educate, it will enrage. And in this case, a little rage is a good thing.Don't miss this opportunity to listen to Steven Greenhut LIVE! - books will be available for purchase and autograph.

About Steven Greenhut:

moneyShow Me the Money! - 2009

Its a new day and age in the world of Real Estate Finance.

Proper and timely funding is the grease the "squeaky wheel" continues to need in order for properties to continue to be bought and sold and for any chance of a housing recovery to take hold.

With mortgage lending activities severely restricted and the availabiltiy of funds for both buyers and sellers limited- this months meeting involves a panel of several different lenders who offer different niche lending programs that cater to activities such as:

* Fixer Upper Loans - both from an institiuional lender standpoint and from a private money lending vantage point.

* First Time and current Home buyers FHA, VA, and Conventional financing programs.

Does Title seasoning of ownership matter?

What about the new HVCC- Home Valuation Code of Condut appraisal rules?

What are the various down payment and qualifying criteria?

* Investor loan programs for the investor looking both Purchase and also Refinance Non Owner Occupied Investor properties

*dollar Short & Long Term Private Money lending

* Hard Money- Asset based Lending

Its important to be aware of what is out there in the marketplace as it may affect you - regardless of whether you are an investor looking to acquire properties or to pull cash out through refinancings, or a seller seeking to get cashed out upon the resale of one of your properties.

Join us for what promises to be a very informative meeting.

There will be a Follow up FULL DAY Workshop on Saturday July 25th, 2009 - held in San Francisco with Andy Heller - the cost to attend is as little as $49.00 - and we have (2) two valuable FREE Bonuses for you if you Pre-Register. For more details about the workshop and to register please click here. 

aaAbout Andy Heller:

Andy Heller is a nationally recognized real estate expert, and has been interviewed and prominently featured in respected publications including Kiplinger, WallStreetJournal.com, TheStreet.com, Personal Excellence, Money Magazine, and MarketWatch.com.

There are literally hundreds of wealth-building strategies available for real estate investors. Some are more lucrative than others, and many are simply way to much work for the money that an investor hopes to make. Fortune Magazine is arguably the leading magazine in North America today that teaches people how to make money. “Regular Guy” Andy Heller, will show you why of the hundreds of wealth-building formulas, Fortune Magazine recommended Andy Heller’s “Buy Low, Rent Smart, Sell High” strategy among the top five recommended strategies for real estate investors. 

Andy and his story will inspire and connect with you, as it is a “regular guy” get rich story. Like so many of us, Andy started investing part time, pulling aside a few hours each week for his hobby. The lack of success of Andy and his partner Scott’s “buy and flip” plans led them literally by accident to a goldmine called buy low, rent smart, sell high.

When Andy and Scott found buying properties from distressed sellers to be tedious, hard work, and depressing they discovered by accident a hidden gem in the foreclosure process…BANK OWNED REAL ESTATE. With bank-owned real estate an investor is able to purchase MULTIPLE PROPERTIES from single sources, without emotions, and with clean and clear title.

Once purchased, when Andy and Scott were then unable to flip their first home after 9 months on the market, they modified the typical lease/purchase deal to come up with their unique rent smart and sell high formula. Their SHORTEST lease is 3 years, and each of their tenants (gladly) accepts responsibility for repairs and maintenance. High turnover, nightmare tenants, and lengthy vacancies are non-issues when you “rent smart”

How profitable is their formula? The last home Andy and Scott sold required about 20 hours of effort, and netted a profit of $57,400. That is $2,870/per hour. But don’t leave your day job just yet. Come hear Andy speak and he will cover:

• Why today’s COOLING market is a RED HOT opportunity for investors

• Buying Low: Learn about the untapped fortunes with bank-owned real estate

• Why especially today bank owned properties offer investors of all means unlimited deals

• WHY ESPECIALLY TODAY AN INVESTOR CAN MAKE ENOURMOUS PROFITS BUYING 
BANK-OWNED FORECLOSURES!!!

• Why bank-owned properties may be the best SOURCE for investors who have limited cash
and/or credit

• How to calculate the EXACT price you need to buy properties at in order to maximize
your profits

• What types of properties can you buy from banks

• Why a MOTIVATED tenant is the key to landlording fortunes

• How the “typical” lease options minimize, not maximize, an investor’s profits

• How to make a fortune in real estate AND help your tenants at the same time

• How to sell for top dollar WITHOUT paying real estate commissions

• Achieve your REGULAR RICHES: Real estate fortunes for regular people…without the hassles

Andy will explain why the “Buy Low, Rent Smart, Sell High” strategy is specifically positioned to take advantage of two dominant characteristics of today’s real estate market. First, on the buying end, we are seeing record foreclosures, and the lucrative post-foreclosure market has been their favorite hunting ground for deals for close to 20 years. Secondly, on the marketing end, their unique lease/purchase strategy positions today’s investor to take advantage of a rapidly strengthening rental market.

TOPIC:

HOW TO HIRE A $50,000

PER YEAR ASSISTANT

WHO PAYS FOR THEMSELF

SPEAKER:

Author, Investor, Educator, Creator of Key Elements Training;

ALAN BRYMER

 

A Personal Assistant – Who Pays Their Own Salary

Most entrepeneurs, business owners, and investors know how to buy and sell, but find that their business and also investing in real estate is taking over their free time and running them ragged.

Alan Brymer is the only speaker whose sole focus is to show business owners and real estate investors how to cut the number of hours they work by 50-80%, while doing more deals with less hassle. The key is having systems, and having someone in place to take care of the myriads of time-consuming phone calls and busy work for you.

Alan teaches a system of strategies designed to help any business owner or investor, whether new or experienced, to hire and train an assistant to run their errands, make their calls, run their marketing campaigns, find them deals, sell their houses, and more. The techniques Alan covers will…

 

• Let you work HALF as much – or get twice as much done – with less effort

• Cut your working hours down by 50-80% each week, and

• Allow you to do ONLY the work that YOU want to/can do – so you can have a life again!

 

 Here’s just a sampling of the important topics covered by Alan in his presentation:

• Sure fire, inexpensive ways to attract hundreds of the right kind applicants

• Tips that zero in on separating the diamonds from the duds, so you are left with only the most qualified

• How to get an assistant who will do personal errands for you as well as business tasks

• How much should you pay an assistant, and how? Hourly? Salary? Commission?

• What kinds of things can they do for you?

• At what point of your business do you recommend getting an assistant?

• The amazing secret of having an assistant that makes you several times more money than you are paying them.

• The pros and cons of hiring someone in your town vs. another state, or even another country

• How to professionally manage people to minimize headaches and hassles, so your business flows smoothly and efficiently.

• How to train your assistant in the least amount of time and get the very the best results.

• How can I learn to LET GO and not be a control freak?

• Independent Contractors vs employees…And MORE!

How many business owners and investors got into business or real estate so they could retire early, travel the world, or live a comfortable life? And how few are actually doing that now?

Business owners and Investors want to know how to get the things they want most out of life, and that is exactly what Alan teaches. And, that’s exactly why people must learn about The Assistant Who Pays Their Own Salary.

This is a VERY valuable presentation you don't want to miss.

Who is Alan Brymer?

Alan Brymer is the creator of The Assistant Who Pays Their Own Salary and the Founder and President of the Utah Valley Real Estate Investors Association. He has been a full-time investor since his first property at the age of 22. By creating a structured, organized approach to his business, Alan has raised millions of dollars in private funding and has become an expert in creative real estate transactions.

Alan’s real estate investment company was named by the Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum as one of the "Top 25 Companies Under Five Years Old."  Competing companies were judged based on profit, growth, funding, job creation, and job quality.

He is a frequent guest expert for the news media, having made TV appearances on KSL’s Studio 5 Morning Show, iProvo, and Spotlight with Dana Robinson. He has also been published or highlighted in The Salt Lake Tribune, Deseret Morning News, The Daily Herald, Utah Business Magazine, Connect Magazine, The Provo/Orem Chamber Insider, Intermountain Investor, Mortgage Mag Weekly, The Scotsman Magazine, Utah Valley Business Quarterly, and The Salt Lake Enterprise.

In addition to his real estate experience, Alan is an expert at systemizing businesses to run without the owner.  Like many, he attended seminars and bought courses but found that while the techniques of real estate are frequently taught, there were no courses that showed how to streamline and run a business in the level of detail and freedom that he was searching for.

He began to develop systems for his own real estate business, which has allowed him to do more deals in less time each month. He has incorporated these into his consulting and is now presenting them as complete systems modules.  Today, serious real estate investors can, for the first time, take their investing to the next level with the world’s first system designed to streamline the real estate investing business and increase profitability.

robynthompson_1.jpgSpeaker; Robyn Thompson

"The Queen of Rehab"

 


Robyn became financially independent renovating houses, and you can do the same;however, if you aren't prepared, the process can become completely overwhelming...

Many real estate investors shy away from the "ugly" house business because they fear hiring contractors and tradesmen. However the BEST deals whether they are from REO lenders or private party sellers are typically found where a property needs lots of fix up work.

We have all heard the horror stories of rehabbers who loose their shirt because a contractor took them to the cleaners, they did not properly estimate the costs for materials and labor, or forgot about the invariable unknowns.

Learn how the beginning novice real estate investor and even the seasoned pros make
correct choices when tackling a renovation project.

How to engage your "Team"; contractors, and tradesmen so that they are hard working team players that get the job done on time, on budget and at a high standard of quality.

*********************************************************************************

Who Is Robyn Thompson?

Robyn Thompson is the nations leading expert on buying, renovating and selling homes for huge chunks of cash and is known throughout the United States and Canada as “The Queen of Rehab”.

Over the past 11 years since Robyn left IBM, she has bought, fixed and sold 260 homes with price ranges as low as $8,000 to as high as $4,000,000.  She has spent as much as $2,100,000 in labor and materials in one year to renovate properties with more than 22 contractors working full time to take the ugly homes she bought and turn them into little castles at lightening speed.

Robyn will be sharing her strategies on: 1) How to find the profitable homes that need to be renovated, 2) How to find and control the contractors to get the job done and 3) Selling houses quickly for huge chunks of cash.

Robyn has taught thousands of students throughout the United States how to become financially independent. She has shared the stage with Donald Trump, Dr Phil, Mark Victor Hansen, Ron LeGrand, Marshall Sylver & many more legends.

BAWB Thursday January 15th 2009 Meeting

Start off the New Year Informed –listen and learn from our own industry expert…

Speaker: Author of Timing the Real Estate Market, Statistician, & Investor; Robert Campbell

Topic: 2009 Housing Forecast -What Will Happen & Why

Program Director Note: “Robert has spoken at our meetings in the past and has been incredibly prescient in accurately predicting California Real Estate Market trends. Don't miss his insight at this months meeting…”

***********************************************

The Campbell Method: A Proven Timing
System that Tells You EXACTLY When to Buy
and Sell Real Estate to Make Maximum Profits!

Dear Real Estate Investor:

Imagine for a moment how you would feel if you could predict major turning points in the real estate market.

Suppose somebody handed you a 21-year time-tested system that would tell you ahead of time when property values were going to hit a peak … and then when prices were going to hit bottom years later.

If you could anticipate these kinds of critical real estate events in advance … then not only could you make spectacular profits, but you could protect your money as well.

Sounds pretty amazing, doesn't it?

Actually, it's not. The real estate market does signal its future intentions if you know where to look.

Hello. My name is Robert Campbell and I wrote Timing the Real Estate Market to help both professionals and ordinary people make the most money in real estate with the least amount of risk. I also have my web site; www.realestatetiming.com Based on a major breakthrough in tracking and predicting real estate trends, my book reveals the real estate timing technique that I call The Campbell Method .

As far as I know, The Campbell Method is the only proven method in the world that shows how to accurately anticipate upcoming changes in your local real estate market.

What this means is that when you read Timing the Real Estate Market , you are going to learn how to make – and protect – your fortune in real estate in the same way that J. Paul Getty, the Rockefellers, Warren Buffett, and other super-rich investors made their fortunes: by focusing on WHEN to buy and sell.

It's true. When it comes to making money in real estate, nothing beats good timing.

The reason that The Campbell Method is going to change the way you think about how to buy and sell real estate is that I share my truly remarkable discovery of five key real estate indicators. I call them “Vital Signs," and they're able to predict the peaks and valleys of real estate cycles with an almost uncanny accuracy. As “leading indicators” to what's looming on the horizon for real estate prices, these Vital Sign indicators act like windows into the future, giving you advance notice of approaching trend changes from three to six months before they become obvious to the general public.

Author's Note: Timing the Real Estate Market is used at the University of San Diego by Professor Elaine Worzala. The class: Real Estate Investment. "The logic behind these Vital Sign indicators is air-tight," says Professor Worzala. "I'm very impressed, and my students love your book."

Copies of Timing the Real Estate Market will be available for purchase and autograph by Robert Campbell at the meeting.

A TWO PART PROGRAM

PART ONE

Don't miss this revealing meeting!

CHAIN OF BLAME
How Wall Street Caused the Mortgage and Credit Crisis
by Paul Muolo and Mathew Padilla


 

The true extent of Wall Street's role in the current mortgage and credit crisis is revealed for the first time by authors Paul Muolo and Mathew Padilla, two acclaimed journalists who have long tracked the financial industry. In CHAIN OF BLAME: How Wall Street Caused the Mortgage and Credit Crisis (Wiley; $27.95; July 2008, Hardcover), the authors spin a tale of greed and recklessness all around Countrywide Chief Angelo Mozilo, whom Muolo has known for 20 years. Going behind the scenes of Mozilo's dramatic rise and fall, the book outlines his love-hate relationship with The Street, and how he paved the way for mortgage banking firms to use loan brokers who had "no skin" in the lending game. The idea was to fund loans as quickly as possible and securitize them through Wall Street. It was then Wall Street's job to transform the mortgages into "investments" and find people (sometimes suckers) to buy them. The whole system became concerned with one thing: earning a commission.

Muolo and Padilla chronicle this disaster, and explain in detail what went wrong at the nation's top subprime lending institutions including Countrywide, and non-banks such as New Century Financial, Ameriquest Mortgage and its sister firm, Argent Mortgage, the latter two of which were owned by the late Roland Arnall, former ambassador to the Netherlands, and a large political donor to the George W. Bush. (Many of the nation's largest non-bank subprime firms were backed by such Wall Street giants as Bear, Stearns, Credit Suisse, Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers and Greenwich Capital, among others.

 

 

 


Revelations from CHAIN OF BLAME include the following (and more):

  • Wall Street firms like Merrill Lynch and Bear Stearns were using sweat shop contract underwriting firms to review billions of dollars worth of mortgages from 2004 to early 2007. Some workers interviewed by Muolo and Padilla believed the edict was to review one loan an hour or never get called again for a job.
  • Some workers told the authors that certain supervisors working for the contract underwriting firms of Clayton Holdings and the Bohan Group changed the ratings on loans to please their Wall Street clients. At the same time Wall Street supervisors didn't seem to care too much about quality because they were more interested in quantity: they had loans to securitize and bond investors to sell those securities too-especially overseas.

  • The inside story of went wrong at Angelo Mozilo's Countrywide Financial, the nation's largest home lender.

  • How various lenders kept lists (such as Countrywide's "Friends of Angelo's") in order to give special concessions and deals to influential people

  • An inside look at the rise and fall of the Bear Stearn hedge funds, based on subprime assets, created by Ralph Cioffi and Matthew Tannin who currently face federal prosecution.

  • How America's subprime debacle sparked a worldwide credit crisis.

  • Which reputable Wall Street firms couldn't resist the gold rush despite growing evidence that subprime delinquencies were growing.

  • What led to the rise and fall of Ameriquest Mortgage, the nation's largest subprime lender.

  • The first definitive history of subprime lending in America with juicy details about how this business started out with 'Repo Men' throwing bald grannies out of their homes.

  • The reasons why it could be a full decade before the U.S housing market recovers from the losses and price declines of the past 18 months.

"I've tracked Jimmy's incredible run of successful real estate investments for 20 years and more recently invested very profitable with him. His latest book, Confessions of a Real Estate Entrepreneur, provides all the tools for analyzing, buying, improving and profiting from the investment in income producing properties. It is a must read for anyone interested in real estate investing."
Jeff Dunne, Vice Chairman, CB Richard Ellis.

"Jim Randel's book, Confessions of a Real Estate Entrepreneur, expounds on all of the exciting elements of commercial real estate. Jim's focus on the building blocks, the creativity and the strategy of deal making gives its readers a front row seat into this high stakes, and richly rewarding game. I have completed many transactions with Jim and have found his excerpts to be a true and readable accounting of just some of his dealings. For all the real estate professionals who work for me, this is a must read."
Jim Fagan, Managing Director, Cushman & Wakefield.

Thursday June 19, 2008

Speaker:

Author, investor, educator,
Michael Morrongiello

TOPIC:

"Paper" into Cash - The Convertible Currency

How to Manufacture Your Own Financing

Don't just survive the credit crunch - THRIVE during changing market cycles!

Discover how to effectively create marketable real estate-secured Notes that can be easily and readily converted into a cash lump sum. With the real estate markets softening, Wall Street no longer buying certain loans, and qualifying criteria becoming more stringent - with the right knowledge, you can fill the void in the marketplace by offering seller financing for both the acquisition and disposition of properties.

What is Seller Carryback financing?

When a property seller assists the buyer by acting as the lender, the property seller may finance part or all of the sale. The term given to such seller financing is "carryback financing." A seller is literally carrying back part or all of the financing on the property instead of a financial institution.
In today's tight credit Market; Seller carryback financing is vital to a successful sales program. It is so important that if more property sellers, their agents, buyers, and Real Estate Investors understood the principles of seller carryback financing, more real estate activity would be generated across the country than with any other marketing tool!

A Few Advantages of Seller Carryback Financing:

It makes a listing more salable.

It provides the seller with an interest return (yield) on their note that exceeds savings accounts, CD's and money market accounts.

The seller carryback note(s) can be an extremely safe investment.

The seller carryback note(s) can be made salable, should the holder need cash in the future.

 

At this Meeting you will learn About;

  • Understanding "Paper" - WHY use seller financing to buy or sell
  • Different types of security instruments which can be used
  • Relationship between PRICE vs. TERMS
  • Wrap's -- Your Multi Purpose Financing Tool
  • Magnifying yield & capturing amortization
  • Deal Structuring tips, tricks, and techniques
  • Using other collateral
  • The some NOW, some LATER concept
  • Generating solutions and how to profit with "paper"

* The type of notes preferred by "paper" investors or note buyers. Owner-occupied homes are the most desirable. History has proven them the most stable. Notes secured by land usually have the greatest risk.

* Real estate values fluctuate both up and down over time, even in good areas. Why a note holder's best protection against loss is protective equity established at the time he acquires a note. An owner with a substantial equity who is paying on a note will be motivated to protect his/her equity position.

Some Terms & Concepts to become familiar with:

Your Financial Calculator:

TIME: Expressed in months or years (Calculator symbol = N)

INTEREST: The rate of interest or yield desired usually expressed per month or per year (Calculator symbol = I). The annual interest rate must be divided by the number of payments that the note requires during the year. Monthly + by 12, Quarterly + by 4, semi-annually + by 2, etc.

PRESENT VALUE: The dollar value today of dollars to be received in the future. (PV is the symbol.)

PAYMENT: The amount of money paid periodically on the note. In the above example, payment includes principal and interest. (Payment is the PMT symbol on a financial calculator.)

FUTURE VALUE: As a seller carried back of a note to be fully amortized over 10 years, the future value (FV on the financial calculator) would be zero. However, suppose a note has a future balloon payment due before it fully amortizes. If you are solving for PV, you must first calculate the amount of the balloon or the Future Value (FV) before you can calculate or solve for the discounted PV value.

More Terms

PROTECTIVE EQUITY: Is the current market value of the property less the total debt on the property. It is the sellers' or lenders' cushion against possible loss. The larger the protective equity, the more protection for the lender. Note: Having substantial protective equity is the best way to take back a mortgage without being taken.

LOAN-TO-VALUE (LTV) ratio is the amount of debt on a property expressed as a percentage of the Fair Market Value (FMV) of the property. Example: A property valued at $100,000 has a first loan of $50,000 and a second loan of $20,000. The $70,000 total debt divided by the $100,000 Fair Market Value (FMV) = 70% LTV. The lower the loan-to-value ratio, the more equity an owner has. For example, with only $50,000 debt, the same property would have a LTV ratio of 50%.

About the Speaker:

Michael T. Morrongiello is an active investor who specializes in Real Estate & Real Estate "Paper" investments. Widely known as having one of the most knowledgeable and creative minds in the paper business, Michael started creating paper as a result of his own Real Estate investment activities in the early 1980s. He has bought, sold or held for investment multiple properties in several states as well as thousands of real estate-secured mortgages. He has creatively used seller financed mortgages to secure all types of residential properties, apartments, mobile home parks, office buildings, development land, businesses, and commercial properties in every state in the Union from Alaska to Hawaii and Florida to California. His tips, tricks, and traps articles often appear in industry publications.

* Buying from sellers and lenders who are in trouble

* Using Investor money for your down payments

* Structuring financing that gives you the cash flow

* Buying property with the greatest profit potential

* Attracting and keeping the best tenants in your town.

He authored the original single family house seminar in 1976 which launched thousands on their way to successful investing. He is still an active buyer and engaged in managing his business and investments, when not traveling with his family, or building homes for Habitat for Humanity.

January 17th 2008 Meeting

A (2) Two Part Information filled Program you do not want to miss!

The Campbell Method: A Proven Timing System that Tells You EXACTLY When to Buy and Sell Real Estate to Make Maximum Profits!
&
The Mortgage Meltdown Freeze = Fraud


Part 1 – San Mateo, CA Attorney, freelance writer;

Sean Olender

MORTGAGE MELTDOWN
Interest rate 'freeze' - the real story is fraud
Bankers pay lip service to families while scurrying to avert suits, prison

Excerpt:
…unfortunately, the "freeze" is just another fraud - and like the other bailout proposals, it has nothing to do with U.S. house prices, with "working families," keeping people in their homes or any of that nonsense.

The sole goal of the freeze is to prevent owners of mortgage-backed securities, many of them foreigners, from suing U.S. banks and forcing them to buy back worthless mortgage securities at face value - right now almost 10 times their market worth.

The ticking time bomb in the U.S. banking system is not resetting subprime mortgage rates. The real problem is the contractual ability of investors in mortgage bonds to require banks to buy back the loans at face value if there was fraud in the origination process.

And, to be sure, fraud is everywhere. It's in the loan application documents, and it's in the appraisals. There are e-mails and memos floating around showing that many people in banks, investment banks and appraisal companies - all the way up to senior management - knew about it.

Part 2 – Author of Timing the Real Estate Market, Statistician, & Investor;

Robert Campbell

The Campbell Method: A Proven Timing
System that Tells You EXACTLY When to Buy
and Sell Real Estate to Make Maximum Profits!


"Is now a good time to buy ...
or should I wait?"

"Should I sell now ...
or will housing prices go even higher?"


 

Dear Real Estate Investor:

Imagine for a moment how you would feel if you could predict major turning points in the real estate market.

Suppose somebody handed you a 21-year time-tested system that would tell you ahead of time when property values were going to hit a peak … and then when prices were going to hit bottom years later.

If you could anticipate these kinds of critical real estate events in advance … then not only could you make spectacular profits, but you could protect your money as well.

Sounds pretty amazing, doesn't it?

Actually, it's not. The real estate market does signal its future intentions if you know where to look.

Hello. My name is Robert Campbell and I wrote Timing the Real Estate Market to help both professionals and ordinary people make the most money in real estate with the least amount of risk. Based on a major breakthrough in tracking and predicting real estate trends, my book reveals the real estate timing technique that I call The Campbell Method.

As far as I know, The Campbell Method is the only proven method in the world that shows how to accurately anticipate upcoming changes in your local real estate market.

 

What this means is that when you read Timing the Real Estate Market, you are going to learn how to make – and protect – your fortune in real estate in the same way that J. Paul Getty, the Rockefellers, Warren Buffett, and other super-rich investors made their fortunes: by focusing on WHEN to buy and sell.

It’s true. When it comes to making money in real estate, nothing beats good timing.

The reason that The Campbell Method is going to change the way you think about how to buy and sell real estate is that I share my truly remarkable discovery of five key real estate indicators. I call them “Vital Signs," and they're able to predict the peaks and valleys of real estate cycles with an almost uncanny accuracy. As “leading indicators” to what’s looming on the horizon for real estate prices, these Vital Sign indicators act like windows into the future, giving you advance notice of approaching trend changes from three to six months before they become obvious to the general public.

Author's Note: Timing the Real Estate Market is used at the University of San Diego by Professor Elaine Worzala. The class: Real Estate Investment. "The logic behind these Vital Sign indicators is air-tight," says Professor Worzala. "I'm very impressed, and my students love your book."

Copies of Timing the Real Estate Market will be available for purchase and autograph by Robert Campbell at the meeting.
