Your first real estate check, no matter how big or small it is, is going to be the sweetest check you’ll ever cash. When Gavin closed his first deal and got a $1500 check, it wasn’t the amount that he loved. It was the confirmation that wholesaling could absolutely work for him.After Cornelius realized that he was completely priced out of his local market, he tried to branch out. But he just wasn’t getting the return on his marketing dollars to justify the money he was pouring into his business. Plus, he was trying to work around the edges of his already full life and he just couldn’t stay up on his leads consistently.Gavin and I get it. It’s hard to build a real estate business when you have a family and a full-time job. That’s why we love the virtual wholesaling business.Hear how Cornelius networked within our Facebook group to plug in the right players into his new and improved business system. In just under two months, he had a breakthrough that landed him 2 signed contracts and 2 in escrow. But the biggest win is how much his mindset has improved from “Maybe I can do this” to “Yes! This absolutely works!”.If you’re ready to build out a system that can be done even while you work full-time, or you just need a mentor to get you pointed in the right direction, let’s connect at REI Network and see if we’d be a good fit for you.What's Inside:—Networking within my Facebook group helped Cornelius build up his boots-on-the-ground operation.—Is it your VA or your marketing that’s serving up poor leads to follow up on?—The one thing that might be better than following up: Consistency.

Quick entry for today: we’re doing another 5 Sellers A Day accountability program. We’ve done this a few times before, and we’ve had a great turnout. A lot of you guys already know what you need to do. You already know how to make offers, how to submit contracts and you’ve already bought all the courses you can buy to help your real estate business. You don’t need another course. You already know how to do deals. What you need is someone who will hold you accountable.Gavin and I always drive to this point: this business comes down to marketing, talking to sellers and making offers. And some of the most successful students we’ve ever had are the ones who decided to stop being professional students - those who decided enough learning; it’s time to start DOING.Your speed to income is directly proportional to the number of offers you make. If you’re still struggling to make money, it inevitably means that you are not making enough offers. So, starting next week, we’re opening a new 4-week program where we hold you accountable to talk to 5 sellers and make 3 offers a day. And if you complete the challenge of making 60 successful offers during the 30-day program, we give you your money back – guaranteed. During this program, we’ll be doing regular coaching calls, analyze your scorecards and give you access to a Facebook group where you can ask questions.Most of our best students come from this program and we only do this program once or twice a year so don’t miss out. The program starts next week, March 1st. Start DOING, join the challenge and grow your business.Go to 5SellersADay.com

Her drive to make real estate work for her is so inspiring, but she realized that she’d gotten to a point where her hustle couldn’t overcome the deficiencies in her business.If you have a hundred leads, and you only get around to calling 50 of them, then how many leads do you really have?

986 » Doing Deals Virtually from India While Still Managing a Non-Profit Full Time with Gavin Timms and Josh Howard
In the summer of 2020, Josh Howard saw that his work with Central India Christian Mission could be enhanced if he was earning more money on the side. However, he didn’t want to add a full-time W-2 job to his already full-time non-profit work. He was also living and working in India already, so any work he picked up would have to work around an international schedule.By August, Josh had started marketing for his virtual real estate investing business in the Indianapolis market. His initial success felt amazing, but his business system was so unorganized that he felt like he was burning the candle at both ends. That’s when he reached out to Gavin Timms for help to structure his business in a way that supported his work/life balance.Josh’s “why” for real estate is a big one. Blessings others with his ministry work make his real estate investing that much sweeter. If you’re interested in JVing on a deal in the Indy market, or if you’d like to connect with Josh to work with Central India Christan Mission, you can email him at JHoward111@icloud.com.

Reach out to Gavin or me to see if we’d be a good fit as coaches for you.What's Inside:—Working around international timelines has required a little creativity on Josh’s part so that he can manage his day job on India’s time and REI on CST.—From a distance, virtual wholesaling fits Josh’s needs exactly.—How Josh chose the Indianapolis market, and how he and his U.S.-based partner work together.
As an active-duty military member, Brent Bowers needed a side business that could be run even if he was deployed. After trying to build a rental empire in high-priced Colorado, Brent realized that land flipping would better meet his needs. Today he flips land all over the country with his teams, and he coaches other real estate investors as they invest in passive vacant land income.The first time Brent went looking for sellers, he accidentally mailed out to the county held tax lien list. That’s the list that no one wants, but his response rate was crazy good. And he loved that the whole process of flipping land has less to worry about and negotiate. It’s nothing like flipping houses where every house has a secret, and boy are you going to be broke when you find out that secret.Generous with his knowledge, Brent answers in-depth land flipping questions including:—How do you determine where you’re going to market?—How do you find a list of vacant land?—How do you determine the value of the property?—What’s the best direct mail marketing system?—How can you find buyers for your properties?—How do you build up capital for your investments?—Is it better to sell for cash or with owner financing?Land flippers are like the pawnshops of the real estate world. A seller needs quick cash for a property that they bought for “some day”, so they turn to a flipper to move their property. That’s why they’re happy to sell their land for 25 cents on the dollar. For investors, land investing is going to give you so much less trouble since you’re not dealing with those 3 Ts: termites, toilets, or tenants.Brent is so amazingly generous with his knowledge that I hope you’ll get as excited about land flipping as I am. It’s a great way to build a passive income without the headaches of home ownership.What's Inside:—A15 item due diligence list for vacant land.—The three different direct mail companies he uses, and the new company he wants to try.—Brent makes blind offers through what he calls LOLs, or Land Offer Letters.—Brent’s direct mail response rate pre-COVID and post-COVID.
