These courses will help you understand what it takes to build wealth, how to invest in real estate, and legalities surrounding real estate.
Keys to Successful Money Management
If you're interested in discovering how most wealthy people amassed their fortunes, this is the course for you. Contrary to popular opinion, most of us don't achieve true wealth through luck or an accident of fate. Just about anybody can build wealth. All it takes is organization, discipline, and a firm knowledge of how to proceed. If you're serious about accumulating a sizable nest egg and living the life of your dreams, this course will supply you with the knowledge and skills you'll need to succeed. You've probably heard amazing stories of people amassing untold fortunes with seemingly little effort, finding financial freedom through the magic of day trading, shorting stocks, buying and selling commodities, playing the slots, flipping real estate, or some other fad of the moment. These stories sound too good to be true, and that's because they are. All of those get-rich-quick schemes have three things in common: they're unsafe, they're unpredictable, and they tend to produce far more losers than they do winners. The truly wealthy do not rely on risky games of chance and raw luck to build their fortunes--they focus on creating wealth out of what they already have. If you're serious about living a better life by tapping into your unfulfilled potential, we'll show you the way. In this course, a certified financial planner will walk you through the steps you need to take in order to achieve true financial success. You'll become comfortable with the broad array of investment choices available to you right now, and you'll discover the best ways to acquire and accumulate both cash and real property. We'll also discuss the tax implications of your investment decisions, along with steps you can take to protect any wealth you acquire.
Real Estate Investing
Have you ever heard the old saying, "Buy low, sell high?" News stories about the softening real estate market might scare away some novice investors. Experienced investors, however, recognize weak markets as opportunities to pick up bargains. When there are more sellers than buyers, your chances of getting a good deal go way up. In fact, many investors make more money in a down market than in a strong one. In many areas, now is the time to buy before prices start climbing again. In this course, you'll learn how to make money in any area, in good times and bad, even if you have little money to start with. Real Estate Investing includes specially designed worksheets and hands-on activities to take the guesswork out of your investing efforts. By emphasizing systems and service, this course will help you do more with less effort while serving the needs of your buyers and sellers. We'll start by developing a plan for your own investing efforts based on your personality and investing objectives. We'll cover the proven methods used every day by full-time, professional real estate investors. You'll learn how to invest in foreclosures, manage a rehab project, and build your team of real estate professionals (title officers, lawyers, accountants, mortgage brokers, appraisers, and more). We'll also explore the effects of higher interest rates and cover alternative strategies for a changing market. By the end of the course, you'll be working toward your first (or next) deal. This course provides straight talk about real estate that will help you profit from the tremendous opportunities available to investors right now.
