Sweet Tip – How to Make Offers on Short Sales

Sweet Tip – How to Make Offers on Short Sales

Short sales are super sweet, Kids – but ask almost ANY seasoned investor, and they’ll tell you that they are a big fat crap-trap in terms of the effort they take to do successfully. So what’s the next best thing. How about making ton’s of short sale offers and letting some other fool do all the work. That’s the American way, right? If you’re not making offers on... [Read more]

I Just Purchased 4 Houses in 2 Weeks! $17,500 to 2 Wholesalers.

Look out B’more – you’re boy is BACK! I’m kicking ass and taking names. That’s right! As my boy B-Nort likes to say; I’m hyper-focussed and flush with cash. I’m a real estate buying machine. Unstoppable people! You gotta watch this video detailing my most recent purchases! Oh and by the way, I’ve paid out $17,500.00 to TWO lucky wholesalers who happened... [Read more]

Obama Claus Strikes Again!

Obama Claus Strikes Again!

God love ‘em. He giveth and on April 15th, he’ll most certainly taketh away. I don’t know how we’re going to get ourselves out of $10 trillion dollars in debt, but I’m gonna milk this tax credit for all its worth by selling as many rehabbed houses as I can until the $8000 well runs dry!  No one would ever accuse me of loving more government, but God do I love this tax... [Read more]

Secret Traits of Billionaires. Secret?

Secret Traits of Billionaires. Secret?

I don’t know why I read articles on Yahoo.  Perhaps its the same reason I can’t check out of a grocery store and NOT look at People, or The Enquirer. I swear, I could care less wh at John and Kate are up to. So I’m checking my email tonight and I come across this article on Yahoo, “Traits Billionaires Share.”  The article like most on Yahoo, proved to be pretty lame,... [Read more]

I Just Paid $10,000 To A Wholesaler!

I Just Paid $10,000 To A Wholesaler!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of stroking a deposit check for what will be our next rehab. This little rambler in College Park should turn out to be a super-sweet deal for me, but I’m not the only winner in this deal. The wholesaler who I bought the deal from made a quick $10,000 smackers for flipping me the contract. Wanna be the next person to make $10-G’s for finding me a deal? Learn... [Read more]

“Gnarly Suds Dude” – The Foreclosure Tsunami is Coming

“Gnarly Suds Dude” – The Foreclosure Tsunami is Coming

If you know anything about foreclosures and bank owned properties, you know they are plentiful out there.  The market is awash in bad debt and bank owned properties. I’ve been buying bank owned properties (or REO’s) for over a year, and in that time it seems the tide of available properties has risen, fallen, risen again – and now it seems the banks are holding back a bit. But even... [Read more]

HUGE Wholesale Fees!  Come and Get ‘Em!

HUGE Wholesale Fees! Come and Get ‘Em!

Folks, I’m not gonna lie to ya – I’ve been slacking a bit here in Baltimore lately.  We investors always think the “other guy” is just raking in the dough.  My students are crushing it! But I’ve been a little bored.  I am however coming out of my slumber and I’m going on a buying spree. I’m looking for all the help I can get when it comes to finding... [Read more]

The Ocean Called…

The Ocean Called…

Look, it can’t always be all real estate all the time.  Sometimes even I take a break from talking deals.  On this day, I met up with my boy Ant’nee (TJ) Topper to enjoy a crap-pile of Sushi at one of Maryland’s finest Sushi establishments; Sushi Sono.  This place is the REAL DEAL – and when the big boys come calling, the chefs bring out the specials!  This ain’t your... [Read more]

Its Raining Houses.  Oh Sweet, R.E.O.!

Its Raining Houses. Oh Sweet, R.E.O.!

I’m sitting here in Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport.  It’s Saturday at 4:49AM and I’m wondering once again – “What in the hell am I doing here? Why in the fletch am I here when my family is 2000 miles away?” It’s been a completely awesome week with my boy Bob Norton.  We’ve got three houses under contract, we’ve got a contractor to do the work and... [Read more]
