Recently, my inbox has been blown up by real estate "gurus" offering classes and inviting me to free seminars! (exciting right?) I started poking around and trying to find out more about what they are teaching... the information is vast. Out of intrigue, I signed up for a local investing class with thee Than Merrill. I am not positive if I will attend or not but I wanted to discuss with the bigger pocket community and see if anyone had gone to any of these types of seminars? Did you find it educational? What is the big picture they are trying to sell you on? If you would never in a million years attend one of these events, why not?
Almost all of these "free" seminars are just a ploy to get you inside the room with a couple hundred other people so they can find 4-5 suckers. The suckers will sign-up for the "mastermind" program and pay tens of thousands of dollars. Everyone and their brother wants to be a real estate investor right now so the guru business is booming.
That being said, I met a gentleman recently who has done extremely well with real estate and has built-up quite an impressive portfolio. He told me he would go to any seminar he could because during the free portion, he could always pick up one or two little nuggets of information.
I would go and see if you can learn something new during the free portion. Leave your credit cards at home and don't be tempted by the sales people.
