“How to Become a Real Estate Investor in 12 Easy Lessons” (Still only $499.00 for Members of MassRealEstate.net and only $599.00 for non-Members)
From 1990 when I first wrote this course, there have been many changes in our lives and especially the Real Estate Industry. I believe, there are actually more opportunities in Real Estate today than at any other time in History, if you know where to look for them.
Robert Kennedy. In a speech in Cape Town in June 1966, Kennedy said: There is a Chinese curse which says ‘May (S)he live in interesting times.’ Like it or not we live in interesting times. They are times of danger and uncertainty; but they are also more open to the creative energy of (wo)men than any other time in history.
Right now in the USA we’re in the middle of a Recession. Some would even say it’s a Depression. The classic Economics 101 Definitions I remember were;
Up to 12% Unemployment = Recession.
Over 12 and Up to 25% Unemployment = Depression.
According to Ronald Reagan in a more recent definition; “If your neighbor is laid of from their job it’s a Recession. When you’re laid off it’s a Depression”.
I’ve heard that the (Repeal of the Glass Steagall Act to enable Banks more latitude. The Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac changing requirements to boost Home Ownership. The 911 Attack and current Wars in the Middle East. The QE1, 2, 3 and other TARP toxic asset relief programs. European Central Bank crisis. Maybe even Sunspots.) Are all at fault or the result of each other!
If you know any or all of these to be the Culprit AND you have the ability to change them? Please do! Otherwise this is the hand we’ve been dealt. Let’s get going and Carpe Diem! Seize the Day and Opportunities!
Ability, by the way. The next time you go by a mirror remember that the chances of you being here right now, on this Earth evolutionarily, are about one in a Trillion. The Earth is said to be about 4.54 Billion years old and you are the product of that tremendous effort. Which makes you very special! I believe you’re here for a reason and the Universe has given you everything you need to do well and succeed today. Tomorrow more challenges but more resources from the Universe.
I’ve run this Investors group for awhile and the main concerns from Members (especially newbies) has been: How do I get hard money to finance my deals? How do I find Deals? How come I can’t sell this great deal right away?
The answers lie within the course and you may be surprised at what they are! If you can give this 30 minutes a day you should be kicking it in a month. If you don’t have that time I’ll work with you at your pace but it’s a rewarding field that you’ll enjoy and prosper at, remembering first to be concerned with others.
I look forward to work with you on this life changing course, WHEN you’re ready! Let’s go.

2. This Friday 8/17 we’ve got Movers and Shakers in Danvers 7-8:30 PM. Our regular meeting 8/28 with Sherwinn Williams their huge Discount for Paint/Supplies and Attorney who’s been taking on the Big Banks to save Homeowners from Foreclosures and Auctions.
3. This is not a slow Summer for me. I’ve had several closings to save homeowners significant cash and several new purchases that we’ve financed last week. I put a crew together and we finished a couple of roofs (my highest was across from the harbor, we beat the rain) I’m glad to get that done. Also several plumbing and heating issues resolved before the Fall and Winter.
What have you folks been up to?
PS See you soon, Mike
