    Advanced Strategies For Real Estate Investing

    Episode #6 of our webinar series airs live this Saturday
    by Adam Taggart

    Thursday, May 30, 2019, 3:47 PM

IMPORTANT UPDATE: This webinar is being rescheduled, as the presenter, Russell Gray, sadly just informed us he has a family health crisis to attend to. You can still register for the webinar. We’ll let all registrants know shortly when the new date for the live event will be as soon as we hear back from Russ.

Episode #6 of our webinar series on real estate investing airs live this Saturday June 1 at noon ET (date is being rescheduled, TBA shortly)

It will be the final structured presentation of this series. (There will be a subsequent Episode #7, but that will be fully dedicated to open audience Q&A)

Episode #6, titled Putting It All Together In The Real World, will be led by Russell Gray, who did an excellent job walking us through the key calculations and industry metrics that were discussed Episodes 3 and 4.

In this coming episode, Russ will share several strategies used by more advanced real estate investors to increase their financial returns, protect their privacy, and boost their quality of life. Specifically, he’ll discuss:

  • Financial Strategies for Increasing Cash Flow, Growing and Protecting Equity
  • Using Private Placements for Privacy, Diversification, and Debt-Free Leverage
  • Using Real Estate to Enhance Your Lifestyle, Asset Protection, and Estate Plan

If you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for this concluding presentation in our webinar series on real estate investing.

And don’t worry if you can’t make the event when it airs live. As with each of our previous episodes in this series, a replay video of the full event will be sent within a few hours of the webinar’s conclusion to everyone who registered.

How To Watch Past Episodes

If you haven’t been watching this excellent instructional series on successful real estate investing, it’s easy to get caught up.

Simply click on any of the links below:

  1. Episode #1: Intro To Real Estate Investing For Safety & Profit (FREE!)
  2. Episode #2: The 4 Steps Of Successful Real Estate Investing
  3. Episode #3: The Math Behind The Return On Investment (ROI) — Valuation
  4. Episode #4: The Math Behind The Return On Investment (ROI) — Financing
  5. Episode #5: Nailing Your Niche

Episode #1 is available to watch for free. All subsequent episodes cost $50 each (an absolute steal given how much you would pay to attend a similar progression of live seminars)

As we’ve frequently mentioned throughout this series, now may not be the right time to buy real estate in many markets given their current high valuations. But now is the time to get educated on the process, to start targeting your prospects, to start arranging your financing options, and to start recruiting your team of expert advisors — so that when the next downturn occurs (and many regional housing markets are showing clear signs of nosing over), you’ll be positioned to act.

And if you don’t have much capital of your own to deploy, there are still creative ways by which you can become a successful real estate investor. Here’s what Robert Helms had to say when asked about that during Episode #5:

If you haven’t been watching this webinar series, you’ve been missing out on graduate-level instruction in a key area of wealth-building.

Again, our goal here to educate you so that you can identify opportunity and be positioned to act on it. Whether you ultimately decide to act sooner or later, be sure to get yourself educated now.

    Has Peak Prosperity Gone To The Dogs?

    Capitalism is the growth of capital,  I guess we could say “profit”.  Certainly the expansion of capital for individuals and companies.  My perception is that Peak Prosperity “heavily” focuses on the expansion of capital especially of late.  There have been many more recent opportunities to pay for additional content.  Many articles focus on the stock market and the acquisition of capital.

    Since I represent the “middle class”, oh okay really probably the “lower middle class”. I/we don't rub shoulders and are not in the class of mentioned cronies who create so much residual income that they don't have to have a disgusting “job”.  My perception is that ever so many forms of capital are being forgotten, ignored and the emphasis of prosperity really has to do with money.  Yes there is much talk about climate change and all things wrong with the world but all roads lead to money and money has no compassion for anything.  The reality is if we don't have compassion and care for others we will all die together.  No money needed.

    Thoughts or will group think let me have it with both barrels?

    Too much focus on money?

    A lot of us here are in the lower middle class with disgusting "jobs" continuing into our 70's for necessity, not fun.  I've suggested to both Chris and Adam that they should hold paid content for a reasonable time (3-6 months maybe) and then release on the public side because if we have any chance of ultimate survival we need more people who are just middle class working stiffs aware of the problems and potential solutions.

    I think the concentration on the market (and political impacts on the markets) may be appropriate because there's another big crash on the way - not if, just when and how big.  These crashes of overheated markets pushed by insider fraud and government manipulations are no longer in the black swan category-the term "neon swan" comes to mind.  I like having a single place where I can get a good analysis of how things stand on the economic side from people who have time to do the analysis on a daily basis and who, unlike MSM, don't lie for a living.

    So how does the stock market relate to us working stiffs?  Well, hopefully you have been funnelling income from that disgusting job into a retirement fund AND it shouldn't still be invested in an overpriced market.  There are a lot of alternatives we little guys can't easily use directly, but a lot of their suggestions could apply to us also.

    More importantly, keeping a daily eye on the real markets (not some MSM fairy story) is a useful thing for us wage slaves.  It may impact our jobs.  We can prepare for the disruptions by knowing how bad it's getting.  I don't see the PP community as mercenary.  I think if anybody reported something on the paid section of the site that could serve as an early warning to those who can't afford to subscribe they have the ethics and compassion to push it out to the non-subscribers quickly.

    The insiders are starting to share information on their investigations of cities/regions where we might want to relocate or retire.  I have a house in Houston and I need to sell it BEFORE it's under 10' of water.  That's the sort of main street issue we all have.  Sure, it's about the equity in the house that I can't afford to loose, but even more it's about safety and peace of mind.  Sharing this kind of research and analysis of not just the climate and physical safety of an area, but also about compatible community and ways to make a living locally.  This type of sharing is valuable to all.

    I suspect Chris (and the rest of us) are mostly-unconsciously writing to our own demographic.  Perhaps we could obtain content constructed by people with different viewpoints, and that would broaden the appeal of the site overall.

    Adam has an issue to deal with every week: "what content should I present."  Its a very concrete issue.   If you were going to contribute some content, what would it look like?  Do you have any article ideas?

    I am not speaking for him - but I am curious as to what you think.

    Thanks Dave

    Well I started to jot down a few ideas and then realized that they would probably be of little interest to the wealthy demographic who populate this site.  I do understand that up-selling to an existing clientele is standard practice.  I just had the oil changed in my car,  which was supposed to be a free one, but the business came out and explained that after inspecting my vehicle it would benefit from almost a $1,000 of work. Free indeed, haha.  Didn't bite.

    The idea that has been discussed here of obtaining wealth, sitting on cash and waiting for the downturn so one can pick up cheep assets translates into lets take advantage of our fellow man in their time of hurt and misery to get even richer.  I find this site to be an oxymoron.  Really a love - hate relationship. Create a world worth inheriting but take advantage of our fellow man to get rich in the process.  Question - has there been as much discussion on how to easy peoples suffering as there has been on shooting and self protection?  I do not see how we will ever create a world worth inheriting until we value our neighbor.  Children, elders or sick?  Oxymoron - see what I mean.  The more things change the more they stay the same.  My garden beckons me.

    Good Perspective Granny

    I think on the whole this site is balanced. Finance however seems to slightly dominate. I would like to see more emphasis on the gardening, solar, rainwater collection, and interviews with people living off the grid. These people would no doubt appear to be like aliens to most of us who have a conventional lifestyle. Yes I lean towards resiliency, but there are people way out on the edge who are really doing it, and that is where innovation occurs.

    My philosophy - at least the one I try to stick with - is that I should focus on what I want to create, rather than complain about the stuff that I don't like.  I'm successful maybe 30-50% of the time.  Complaining is just so built-in from childhood.

    I was trying to encourage you to do the same thing.  Create the content you want to see.

    You can always write a topic post about something you really love.  Why not?  Who cares if the rich people don't like it?  You like it!  Pretend you have a weekly column.  Write about something you love every week.  Maybe you'll get a following!

    I mean, how serious is Adam's "dog" post?  It is, but it isn't, too.  Clearly he loves his dog.  My family was not rich, but we had dogs.  All through my childhood: dogs.  My mom had her dog the day she passed away.  (Dog died a month after she did - no coincidence there.)

    As for the "hold your cash until things turn down" philosophy...the negative viewpoint is that we are going to act like vultures, ready to swoop down on the poor, suffering people at the moment they are totally screwed and grab their assets away from them.

    Here's a fact of life: vast numbers of people buy at the top.  (I know this, because I've done it myself).  This is a wealth-destroying act.  Regardless of any action I take, or don't take, that's what people will do.  We can choose to be one of that herd, or we can choose to buy after the decline.  Given those are the two options that are available - which would you select?  Buy the top along with the herd, or buy the bottom?

    It seems a little foolish to buy the top, doesn't it?  Especially if you can be patient, and wait for things to be on sale.

    I nominate OliveOilGuy for Rainwater Pictures

    And I happen to remember that OliveOilGuy has done lots of rainwater collection work on his farm in Texas.  I would love to see pictures of how you set this up, OOG.  I find it very inspirational to see what others are doing.

    Real estate investing

    Hi everyone

    A question when buying assets like investment property. Based on a series of asset bubbles (housing included) waiting to burst, how are we able to protect from an erosion in property prices if i invest in residential property?

    I would appreciate the group's thoughts, Thanks
