I don’t think it was a waste of money. It has alot of good information, just not alot of depth. I think you need more than just the course to dive in and start buying. I would check ebay before you send for the course. There are many for sale there at better prices. If you buy from Sheets, however, you can return it in 30 days if you don’t like it.

Good luck.

Has anybody in NY actually used the program, and is making the kind of net income they show on the infomercial. Would appreciate any response thanks.

I think Carleton’s course is a very good introduction and overview of REI, but you need more education to be really successful. Carleton says basically that in his course.

As far as the amount of income from REI, I know it is possible to achieve those results and more. I don’t believe you can’t just rely on his course alone, but its an excellent start and not too expensive.

Go for it and let nothing stop you. Good Luck!

It’s nice to see somebody else wondering if the infomercial is really working for people.Could not answer your question, because I have not purchased the program yet. I’m doing a little research on it before I spend the money. I do have friends that do make good money with real estate, but they had the money to put down when purchasing.

There are no extra costs - it’s like buying a self-help book or study program. I think it’s amazing how many people will debate and question for years whether they should spend the $230 for the course. If you can’t make a small committment like this - you’re not going anywhere. I was in the same boat a few years ago - asking everybody if this is a scam, trying to split the cost of the program with everybody, asking people to prove they made money with this. And you know what - I WAS WRONG! There can be money made from this. Is it easy? No way - if it was everybody would be doing it. Also, I always thought people owed me proof of their success - I would challenge people by saying “Show me the legal papers from these no-down deals” and they never did. I didn’t understand - but now I do. Now that I own 7 seven homes myself why should I go out of my way to prove to some newbie that I did it - I don’t care who believes me or not. Photocopying legal papers and “proving” that I did it to a newbie doesn’t put any money in my pocket. The thing is - stop wasting time trying to decide if this $230 for the Sheets course is a scam or can work. If you’re not sure, buy a real estate book for $20 - there’s plenty out there - learn from somebody - it doesn’t have to be Sheets. I try to read a book on real estate once every couple of months - it teaches me new things that the Sheets course didn’t. Sheets is a good starter course but you need to keep learning to be truly successful at this - even he says that himself.

So bottom line - as I tell all newbies - DO SOMETHING! If you don’t believe Sheets is for real, learn from someone else.

I bought the course and can see the light. It’s distant and a little dim but it IS THERE. I would like to find others in the Cleveland area that are interested in becoming partners and sharing the cost of the course. I bought the CD version at $250.00 w/shipping. It arrived with the “Quick Start” video damaged. I called and they immediately shipped me another FED EX at no charge to me and just said to throw the bad one away. My wife doesn’t believe it’s possible, I’m sure it is. I could sure use a study partner and potential business partner.

Hi there,

I have the CS program. There are no additional costs for the program itself once you have purchased it. There are other tapes and courses that can be purchased if you so desire, but they are not mandatory. The CS material is informative, but not all inclusive. There are things discussed that, in my opinion, need more in-depth coverage. Some of the techniques will work well in some areas and probably not so well in other areas. I find it difficult to find anyone with an assumable mortage, although there are probably some out there. It is also difficult to find property that will be 100% financed and give positive cash flow in this area, prices are too high.

These are some of my thoughts, if you want to discuss anything in detail, send me an email.

Good luck!
