In the wake of everything that’s happened in our country over the past few years, we’re entering a “new” economy. What worked in the past in Real Estate investing isn’t working today. It’s CLEAR that the timing couldn’t be better for creating quick cash and building a long term business with discounted notes investing (all in your spare time).

Joe Varnadore from NoteSchool have been in the business of buying & selling discounted notes for over 20 years and have closed over 10,000 notes!

There are approximately 300,000 REOs (bank owned properties) on the market today. Sound like a lot? It’s not really, when you consider that number is nationwide.

Meanwhile, the banks have quietly packaged up 9,000,000 defaulted loans (notes) and sold them to the hedge funds.

Most investors don’t know it, but you can get your hands on these notes and profit handsomely – without ‘tenants or toilets’.

Notes are true passive income.

And, which would you rather go after…

  • 300,000 bank owned properties that every other investor is competing for?
  • 9,000,000 defaulted loans your competition doesn’t even know exists?

I think the choice is clear.

And that’s not to mention the other side of the coin – seller financed fully performing notes.

The opportunity is absolutely massive… and Joe Varnadore’s ready to reveal all of the secrets he’s learned working with Eddie Speed who has spent over 30 years in the biz.

In the 1-Day You Will Discover…

  • How to create multiple streams of passive cash flow that fuel your lifestyle all through retirement (I’m not talking about being a landlord… this true ‘set it and forget it’ income).
  • Why great REO deals are getting harder and harder to find (making it tougher and tougher to find good investments in your area).
  • Why Wall Street has muscled in on your action (and how even the little guy can work with them to land incredible property deals).
  • A sneaky back-door method to buy properties in your area at just 20% - 50% of today’s fair market value (I’m not talking about blighted or deserted properties… these are good homes in good areas).
  • A simple investing twist that takes you out of the ‘tenants and toilets’ game for good (and no, I’m not talking about hiring property managers).
  • Why right now is the absolute best time to get involved with real estate-backed notes (position yourself just in front of this profit tsunami and ride this wave for years to come)
  • How to start and grow a real estate empire using just $100 out of your self-directed IRA (and grow that empire completely tax-free).
  • A completely innovative way to sell a home so that you enjoy cash flow payments for years - even though you actually got paid to buy the home (no – I’m not talking about lease-options or any other strategy you’ve likely heard of).

good luck with this.. a lot of what your talking about is old news !   

 Jay - There was no promise of new fangled "techniques" but there are some things that have happened recently in the mortgage markets that have allowed greater opportunities in discounted notes. The speaker has been doing discounted notes for over 30 years and was able to talk about the differences now as opposed to when he got started. I did find the class very useful and learned things I did not know before. Even though his name sounds flashy, Eddie Speed is very down to earth and was very open with the questions that he was asked about his company and the training he offers.

How did the event turn out?  How much of the one day paid event was substance, and how much was a pitch for the "more advanced" training?

 Dan - The event turned out very good. Eddie Speed did talk about his 3-day events, but there was plenty of information to get someone started. As far as "training costs" I felt the day long events and even the 3-days he offers were very reasonably priced for the information received. I have signed up to go to the 3-day courses that he offers and look forward to them. For the skills necessary to move a discounted note strategy forward, newbies should be more careful. The field is best for people who already have experience with flipping, wholesaling or marketing properties. I do private lending for flippers and was able to pick up the concepts of the course easily. Some of the techniques used in this strategy make the money I create through my lending look like child's play and marginal. I look forward to adding his training to my arsenal.

@Jay Hinrichs You're right, there are tons of threads on Eddie, most are positive which is why our local club brought him to our city. We had many investors interested in this subject and Eddie delivered. There are a couple local guys who have done well with their note businesses. Both started after taking one of Eddie's courses.

When is the three day event?  It would be good to know your impressions after it is over.  And hopefully there is not a pitch for even more super advanced training and/or joining something that has a monthly fee whether or not it produces results.  There seems to be a pattern where a person goes to a free or inexpensive event, then pays for a training that includes a sales pitch for more training.  Several "trainers" seem to have adopted that model.  So it would be good to hear your report, the good, the bad and the ugly.

Hi @Dan Rosenberger  the most recent one was in San Francisco this past weekend. I came away with some new ideas, approaches and possibly a new direction for my business. I do now know that I will be adding owner-occupied notes to my strategies and received a lot of resources to get that started during the 3 day event. I did not sign up for anything additional at this point.

I haven't been to any educational event where there is not some other advanced training available or at least some marketing for a professional service of some sort. This was was no different, but there was no sales pressure. He spent about a total of an hour and a half on Saturday talking about the advanced mentoring and that was it.  Considering that each day ran from 9am-6pm, it was pretty minimal. 

There was no pressure to sign up "today!", they basically have open enrollment and do sell notes to the general public. It was very relaxed training and they were open to questions. 

They have a service of selling notes and there is advanced training/coaching. They were very open about the structure and what was offered.
