What to Say to a Seller & How to Make a Written Offer

Tampa REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge.
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $15 or Pay $20 at the Door.

RSVP on Meetup.com
Tampa REIA Members Please RSVP on Meetup.com

Bill CookMany people have been asking for it, and we are excited to announce that Bill Cook will be our special guest speaker this month at our main monthly meeting on Thursday, May 14th at 6PM at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr West in Tampa, FL. Bill will be teaching us how to talk with sellers and make profitable, written offers on the spot.

When you meet with a seller, do you know what to say? Do you know the most important questions to ask? Can you make a written offer right there on the spot?

Again: Do you know how to make a written offer right there on the spot?

The #1 reason most would-be real estate investors fail is because of F-E-A-R! The fear of not knowing what to say, and the fear of a seller’s reaction to a low offer. What if you could make a safe, full-price offer to every seller?

How can you tell if fear is holding YOU back? Here’s an easy test: 1) How many sellers have you met with this month? 2) This year? If YOUR numbers are less than YOU think they should be, why are they less? Are you even tracking these two most-important numbers?

Remember: The alpha and omega of successful real estate investing is getting face-to-face with sellers and making a lot of written offers!

Do you want to SEE how to do this in action? Do you want to SEE where the best deals are right now? At Tampa REIA’s meeting on May 14th, Bill Cook will explain what he says to a seller, and how he makes a written offer right there on the spot!

Sure Bill can talk the talk, but he also walks the walk!

But wait… there’s more…

Get ready for something VERY special…something almost no real estate investing teacher will do. On Saturday, May 16th, Bill will spend the day with a select group of investors in neighborhoods SHOWING YOU how he knocks on homeowners’ doors, gets 8 out of 10 sellers to invite him in, and how he makes written offers right there on the spot!

When was the last time you spent the day with an experienced dealmaker getting face-to-face with sellers and making written offers in the real world? Ever?

Will you learn something new at the May 14th and 16th events? You bet! Will you see things you’ve never seen before? Positively! Will you be able to take what you’ve learned and put it to use the next day? Absolutely!

Bill & Kim Cook have been investing in real estate for more than twenty years! They’ve built their business square on the back of knocking on sellers’ doors. They have tons of experience at creatively constructing and funding win-win deals. Their investing portfolio is made up of single-family rental homes, mobile homes, a small mobile home park, plus notes and options.

10 Things You’ll Learn At The Meeting:

  1. The #1 cause of investor failure
  2. The two most important things an investor must do to succeed
  3. How to conquer the fear of meeting with a seller
  4. The most important thing you see at a seller’s house
  5. What is an offer – how is it different from a purchase contract
  6. How to write a win-win offer
  7. The difference between a terms offer and a price offer
  8. The two most important tools that every real estate investor needs to carry
  9. Is it crazy to offer $1 million for a $125,000 house – bet the answer will shock you!
  10. Those attending get a FREE copy of Bill’s Offer Form

Several people missed out on hearing Bill speak the last time he was here and have been asking when he was coming back for over a year now. Do not miss the opportunity to learn from this amazing and successful real estate investor!

T.C. will be teaching us how YOU can become a leading expert in your field and dominate your market, backed by the credibility of being a #1 best-selling author!

Credibility is extremely important to establish in the real estate investing business. With Google now easily within everyone’s reach, it is even more important to establish yourself as someone who knows what they are doing and to set yourself apart from the rest of your competitors. How great would it be to be able to confidently tell a seller to search for your name and for them to be able to see that you are considered to be a leading expert and #1 best-selling author in your field? Surely anyone can write a book, find a publisher, and promote their book around the clock so that it lands on #1 best seller lists right? That sounds like a lot of work…

T.C. will show you how to streamline that process and establish instant credibility almost overnight! A process that used to take years to accomplish, T.C. can now accomplish in just a few short months. T.C. has cracked the media code and can help your business soar to new heights and make a lot more money with just a few simple strategies.

Tampa REIA – February 12th
at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay
Still Makin’ Money
With Short Sales!

with Special Guest, Kimberlee Frank

Tampa REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge.
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $15 or Pay $20 at the Door.

Kimberlee FrankJoin us at Tampa REIA on Thursday, February 12th at 6:00 PM at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr West in Tampa, FL with our special guest, Kimberlee Frank, who is a Florida Real Estate Broker/Agent, active Real Estate Investor, Author, Trainer, Mentor; and Short Sale and Negotiating Expert.

Perhaps you’ve read Kimberlee’s column in The Profit Newsletter called “Foreclosures Gone Wild”. Perhaps you even considered pursuing short sales as one of your real estate investment strategies, but avoided doing them because “others” have told you what a pain they can be. Well, Kimberlee is Still Makin’ Money with Short Sales, so why can’t you? And she and her Student Partners have less competition, because Investors are listening to people, the wrong people, who say short sales are impossible. That’s a LIE! She’s working on a deal right now that she and her Student Partners short saled and now they are rehabbing it for a profit of $65,000. Does this interest you at all?? Please be sure to join Kimberlee at our next Tampa REIA meeting where she is going to set the record straight about short sales and how you can profit handsomely, when you know how to do them right.

Kimberlee is going to spend the evening updating us on the current state of the short sale industry, the pros and cons of doing short sales, and her tricks of what’s working now and what’s not. She is going to break down the whole short sale process step-by-step and tell you how you can make profits of $20,000 or more without spending nearly as much time doing the deal as you might think.

And for those who are really interested in pursuing the Big Income from short sales and pre-foreclosures as a serious life-changing strategy, Kimberlee will be back with us on Saturday, February 14th, for a full day workshop called “Foreclosures Gone Wild.” Attend both trainings and walk away with a new plan of attack for your 2015 income! We hope to see you at the meeting and the workshop!

RON LEGRAND EVENT IS CANCELLED.

Hey Everyone, Dustin Griffin here. I have just been informed that Ron is cancelling the Fast Track to Wealth Event this weekend in Tampa on Saturday, January 24th, 2015.

I am currently in the Dominican Republic on the Island REIA Retreat with very spotty internet access and little time or ability to get the word out through normal channels. I am currently typing to you from my cell phone in Punta Cana with a very weak wifi signal.

If you our your friends were planning on attending the event, please advise them that this event is cancelled.

I will do my best to get to the bottom of this matter upon my return and make it up to all registered attendees. I am so, so sorry for this inconvenience and hope you will accept my apologies while I am away.

Today is your LAST CHANCE to register for Ron LeGrand’s Fast Track to Wealth Seminar in Tampa TOMORROW. Don’t miss a rare opportunity to spend a full day with a true master real estate investor and trainer TOMORROW in Tampa. We still have a few seats available at our ridiculously low 2-for-1 special price. Play the video below to hear what Ron has to say about this event!
