I bought Ron’s book, prior to the convention, and once at the convention I also purchased the course material.
I’ll tell you this, His book is great and worth nevery penny, as are the courses.
His book suprised me, in that it contained more than I expected. It has sample forms, and the “how to” to use them. I did one deal before getting the courses, and basically used his book and this board to walk me thru it.
The book gave me the basics to get the deals rolling, and I sort of used a “shot gun” approach. We simply made offers on every property we came accross.
Now, we have the course material, we can stop wasting our time making offers on properties that do not fit the profile. Also, our offers have a better chance of being accepted and are more acurate for a decent profit, due to the detailed course.
The other benefit with the course material we purchased in Dallas, is that the other courses are teaching me and my wife how to handle other aspects of REI. (not just flips)
Always gotta keep the REI toolbox full.
Before the convention and before we purchased the course material, if we came accross a home that did not fit the “Flip” profile, but still had “motivated sellers” we simply passed on it, because we were not prepared to handle it.
Now, with the courses, we are better prepared, and can perhaps make more deals and money.
I am delighted at how well the courses flow. They are written so that any idiot (me) can follow them. I feel Ron wrote his courses like the “for dummies” instruction books.
Maybe he needs a new title, “REI for dummies”!
Anyway, go buy the book, and read it, twice, then go DO!
After you’ve been out there slugging at it with the rest of us, you’ll surely “crave” the course, because you’ll want more.
And you know what?
The money you spend now, may seem like a lot, but after just one good deal, it will pay for itself tens times over.
My first deal has paid me many times over for ALL the courses, books and other misc. things I’ve purxhased over the last couple years.
Good luck to you,
