Tampa REIA Meeting & Vendor Trade Show – January 9th
at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay
Learn to Protect Your Real Estate Investments From Lawsuit Happy People
with Larry Harbolt

RSVP on Facebook or RSVP on Meetup

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

Larry HarboltAre you one of those investors who has a target the size of Florida on your back because you own properties in your own name? Do you want to be a target for every trip and fall person that’s looking to sue you for your hard-earned money?

When you own property in your own name, anyone can go to the courthouse and easily find every single property you own. They can even figure out how much equity you have. Many of these lawsuits are what are known as nuisance suits.

One thing you quickly need to learn is how the Land Trust works and how this one simple document can help protect the properties you have acquired or plan to acquire, with ease and without great expense to you.

The Land Trust will keep your name out of the public eye. On Thursday, January 9th at your next Tampa REIA Meeting at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr. West in Tampa, FL, I will show you how easy it is to protect yourself from lawsuit happy people. Here is some of what you will learn…

  • What Is a Land Trust and What It Does to Help Make You Invisible and Protect You?
  • How the Land Trust Keeps What You Own Out of the Public View and Private.
  • How the Land Trust Can Allow You to Own an Unlimited Number of Properties without Anyone Having a Clue Who the Owner Is.
  • How to Remove the Target from Your Back to Foil Those Looking for Easy Money They Don’t Deserve.
  • How to Keep Anyone Trying to Sue You Paying Their Attorney for Many Months Running into Dead-Ends That Force Them to Quickly Decide If It Is Worth the Cost and Rethink Their Strategies!
  • Why Owning a Property in a Land Trust May Be Better Than Owning It In a Corporation or Limited Liability Company?
  • How to Use the Land Trust to Sell Real Estate So You Will Never Have to Foreclose If the Buyer Defaults.

You may have noticed that no matter where you go, no matter what newspaper or news source you use, all you hear about today is how more and more people are being sued and are being awarded huge sums of money from jury’s of their peers because some ridiculous thing happened that upset or hurt them.

Have you also noticed all of the court shows on television today are all sending a clear message that if someone makes you unhappy, sue them! They encourage undeserving people to take away from a person that made you unhappy, someone who worked hard to acquire a better lifestyle so they can have a better and more prosperous lifestyle without working for what they get.

Suing people has become the new income generating tool many lazy and impatient people are using today to create their wealth instead of working for the money like you and I do.

The old saying… “don’t wait to buy real estate, buy real estate and wait” is a wise statement. But owning real estate in your own name is not a wise thing to do and can be devastating and a potential problem for you and your family if not done correctly.

If you don’t already have the real estate you own in separate Land Trusts, or if you are planning to buy real estate, the Land Trust is the tool you need. The time to protect the real estate assets you have is NOW!

Be sure RSVP NOW and join me at next Tampa REIA on Thursday, January 9th at Tampa REIA from 5PM to 9PM at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr. West in Tampa, FL where I will show you how easy it is to protect yourself from this happening to you. I hope to see you all there!
