Posted on November 9, 2016 by

Karen BershadKaren Bershad has owned and operated several businesses during her career including a printing company and a remodeling business with her late husband. Having over thirty years of hands on business ownership experience, she learned many things about owning and operating a business and always felt “there has to be a better way”. This was the basis of developing The Small Business Advisor.

All the downsizing and our current economy has encouraged many who have been employees to change hats and become entrepreneurs. What has come to light is, most entrepreneurs know a product or service really well and decide to go into business for themselves, but they don’t know what they don’t know about running a business.

Jim will be showing us how to tap into a massive amount of available properties that we can purchase for up to 60% below market value that most people don’t even know about!

Did you know that there is a hidden market that is continually underserved and full of property that needs to be sold… from real estate to valuable personal belongings? There is an unpublished market with millions of available properties that haven’t been exposed to the general public yet, waiting to be bought at deep discounts. Investing in this hidden market is known as Probates Investing.

Probate is the governing process for the liquidation and distribution of a person’s assets to their heirs after they pass away. And just so you know, there is often no greater motivated seller than someone inheriting a probate property they don’t want and can’t afford to maintain from a thousand miles away!

At the meeting, Jim is going to show you how to build your own lucrative probate business, how to find properties and other personal items worth buying, best practices for buying and selling, and how to maximize your profits for big gains. Jim will equip you with all the tools you to make probate investing success. Jim will show you:

  • Why Probate Real Estate Investing is incredibly profitable
  • How to Find Probate Properties BEFORE they are advertised to competitors
  • How A Probate Investor Can cut costs and bring closure to the estate sooner
  • How you can beat brokers before they even know about the property
  • How you can become a valuable asset to the settlement of the estate and make a profit
  • How to market to these motivated sellers
  • What to say to these motivated sellers once you find them
  • How to buy probates up to 60% below fair market value
  • And much, much more!

Stop competing with average investors over the same properties and learn how to tap into this lucrative market that will never ever run dry. TAKE ACTION, RSVP for this Meeting Now and join us and learn the secrets of buying deeply discounted probate properties for massive profits!
