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

 

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 23-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.

Saturday March 28th, 2015

SAFE SAILING....

STORM WARNING AHEAD:
What to do and Where YOU should be Investing your Money


Strategies to Navigate these Uncertain Times Ahead

Don't Miss this inaugural workshop Robert Campbell will be teaching in the SF Bay.

Coming Saturday 3-28-2015 to the South SF Conference Center.
 
A special FULL DAY workshop event that will feature Robert discussing the Data he regularly Views, Interprets, and Analyzes and HOW he has formulated his outlook for the future.

Includes a VERY Special Dynamic strategy / plan that will allow you to successfully navigate the economic storm that lies ahead.

A Letter from Robert Campbell:

Dear Fellow Investors:

These are dangerous and uncertain economic times – and astute Americans are slowly becoming aware that the U.S. economic system has changed. Something just isn’t right – and it feels like we may be falling into something big, deep, and unstoppable.

What’s the problem?

The U.S. national debt is now $18+ Trillion -- doubling in the last 6 years! – and it’s going up by $1 trillion per year.  Even worse, unfunded government promises for Social Security, Medicare, and Public Pensions now stand at $100-$200 trillion.

Folks, debts and unfunded promises that can’t be paid – won’t be paid.  Step one is understanding what the problem is.  The next step is to devise an intelligent strategy for addressing it.

We all went through the 2006-2008 financial collapse and know how badly it ended.  The average American’s net worth is down 30% since 2007 – even after a 3 year rebound in real estate prices and a monster bull market in stocks.

It’s my view that the next financial downturn will likely be even more devastating than the last.  Why?  Because nothing has been fixed – and the amount of debt, and derivatives and leverage in the system has increased substantially.  We are in the final stages of a broke society– a society that keeps kicking the can down the road to avoid the economic re-set that is looming and will surely come.

If you step back and take an objective look at the situation, you’ll find that it’s mathematically impossible to come up with an easy way out. Whether we inflate these obligations away - or default on them – either economic scenario can be devastating to your financial well- being if you are not invested for the right outcome.  That's why it's critical that you have a plan-of-action to get it right. 

What Should the Astute Investor Do?

Where should you be investing your money?

That’s why I'm giving this seminar. 

For a FULL DAY, I’m putting on this event that will show you how to survive financially from what’s coming.  You learn how to strategically move your money into the right Asset Classes at the right time – to make money instead of losing it when the U.S. economy and its markets break down again. 

Here are a few of the things you'll learn at this workshop event:

    1. The current state of the U.S. housing markets – and why it may be poised for another 2006-2010 collapse.
    2. Why the economy has to experience another Great Depression before it can get better – and how to avoid becoming a victim. 
    3. What the problem is – and the futility of worrying about it or trying to “fix” it.
    4. Why your vote – and the politicians you elect – won’t save you – and why you should instead focus on saving yourself.
    5. Why the U.S. is currently like a car speeding 100 MPH heading toward a brick wall.
    6. A proven strategy to correctly prepare for what’s happening, as it’s happening – without any personal bias as to whether we’ll experience

      Inflation, Deflation, Stagflation or even borderline Hyper-Inflation.
    7. The three laws of investment success – and why your future prosperity will revolve around being flexible, open-minded, and a willingness to do what the key asset markets are telling you to do. Learn HOW to Protect yourself from being battered before the BIG Storm hits.

PLUS a Special BONUS DISCUSSION on Creative Techniques by seasoned Author, Educator, Investor; Michael Morrongiello on How to create Cash Flow with expensive NorCal properties.

  • We are often told that SF Bay Area properties will not Cash Flow... or it’s hard to make the make them cash flow

  • Learn a few techniques that will allow you to acquire properties here in California and create Cash Flow with low risk.

  • Why these strategies may be the perfect “Antidote” for these uncertain times looming ahead.

    a

Should you attend this seminar?

I'm well aware that there is a great temptation to do nothing and hope that “Maybe it won’t be so bad – and maybe I can live with it.” This will undoubtedly be the prevailing view of most people – that the crash will be "tolerable." But the question is whether you want to make a pre-emptive effort to create a life that is far better than tolerable – and possibly even improved – while the opportunity for doing so still exists.

ENROLL TODAY and learn how to protect yourself from being battered before the big storm hits.

I call this plan “The Best Investment Strategy I’ve Seen in 30 Years” – and in my mind it’s the best possible plan you can execute relative to the risks going forward.

Thursday April 16th 2015 Regular BAWB Monthly Meeting

GOT CONTRACT?

bAs of the New Year a number of Changes have taken place with the CAR- California Association of Realtors RPA- Residential Purchase Agreement and Disclosures.

The latest version of the CAR Residential Purchase Agreement is a 10-page tangle of paragraphs and cross references.  Come sort it out with the help of 40-year veteran real estate broker Cari Lynn Pace.  Cari stresses that she did NOT design or have input on the new contract, but as a risk management and litigation advisor she can help us understand it.  She will take us through the form’s major changes on a powerpoint presentation. 

cCari has to know the new form, as her own company Professional Publishing LLC, has offered a competing form for decades before this new one surfaced.  Attorneys, agents, landlords, and investors can access individual forms at www.ProPubForms.com

cariCari’s background as a speaker and trainer is impressive:  She’s an author of three real estate books, a past President of the Association of Realtors, Master Instructor with theProfessional Realty Institute, and accredited as an Instructor with the CA Department of Real Estate.   She writes for the California Real Estate Law Newsletter and many other publications.  Her real enjoyment, however, is as a real estate expert witness in courtroom trials.  Cari roots out the bad apples who defraud their clients, and keeps notes.  Her most popular book uncovers the top 100 reasons leading to lawsuits.  She will bring autographed copies of her book “Don’t Shoot Me…I’m Just the Real Estate Agent!” to the meeting.

About our Speakers:

dyDYCHES BODDIFORD

Dyches Boddiford grew up on a farm in rural South Georgia, 10 miles from the small town of Sylvania. Though he was not too interested in farming, he took every chance to learn about construction, wiring and plumbing. He had an interest in science from an early age that was recognized and encouraged by several teachers. After graduating from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1973 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Physics and a Masters in Information & Computer Science, Dyches spent some time in Corporate America before buying his first investment property in 1980. By 1991, he began working full time in his real estate investments and in 1992 earned more than he had working for his old employer.

A past president of the Georgia Real Estate Investors Association (GaREIA), Dyches has been a national speaker on the topic of real estate investments and entity strategies for over 20 years. Dyches has remained a full-time real estate investor, and he feels that only by being active in real estate investing can he bring real world experience to his classes and materials.

peterPETER FORTUNATO

Peter is a libertarian and a capitalist. He believes that transactions which you can be proud of result from carefully conceived goals and plans followed by purposeful actions and scrupulous documentation. Upon graduating from high school in 1965, Peter went right into the real estate business. His motivation was his desire to be self-employed. Pete says “Everyone who knew me believed that I was unemployable. They were right. I still am!” Peter was excited about being free to build his business and his future. He attended seminars and read at every opportunity. He sought out and learned from many mentors and benefited from the example and counsel of his father who encouraged him and supported him from the beginning. Pete finished college with a clientele and an investment portfolio. By 1975 his investment income had eliminated his need for fees from clients to fund his lifestyle.

Peter continues to teach and to attend real estate and investment seminars and meetings regularly. He is respected for his clear and patient explanations of investment concepts and transactions.

He has been building, structuring, manipulating and managing investment transactions and portfolios for more than 45 years. Pete currently lives in Tampa, Florida.
