Announcement: I will be teaching the, “2 Day Tax Deed and Lien Field Trip.” I thought the field trip in September was going to be the last one of the year time but we are holding one more by popular demand. This one will be back in Orlando and not the Ft. Lauderdale/ Miami area. You can still register and learn from an expert on buying real estate through tax deeds and liens.
The first day is in house as I teach you how to do your research and due diligence on tax deeds and liens. The second day we all travel to an auction and get hands on experience. It’s not too late to book your seat and join the rest of us for an awesome event. Details & Sign Up Here .

I teach, “Pulling the Trigger with Due Diligence.” You can attend the class or watch the webinar online. If you want to attend the class, you should register now because the early registrations discount ends. Whether it’s buying tax deeds or a ‘FSBO” (For Sale By Owner) doing the right due diligence can be the difference between making a fortune or losing your fortune. In its simplest form,
due diligence is nothing more than research; or “reasonable investigation.”
By knowing how to research and perform your own due diligence, you gain a competitive edge over those who don’t know how, but more importantly, you will have the tools needed to evaluate properties on your own. The more knowledge you have about any piece of property or the seller with whom you are dealing, the better negotiating power you will have.
I was able to take control of a house based on the information I found in the public records about the owner. Knowing what to look for or even what you are looking at will help you define your strategy.
Don’t forget, if you want to attend the class, you should register now because the early registrations discount ends. You will learn how to find the red flags before you get in the deal so you can pull the trigger safely or in the worst case scenario figure out how to wiggle your way out of a bad situation. We’ll also cover: how to research properties as well as businesses and people; how to navigate the public records and court files to find liens, probates/estates, evictions, finding code enforcement violations, resources for finding property values, and much more.

I just posted a video and the date of our last tax deed field trip of this kind. ***********Click here to see the video of this house that sold for just $9,000 and info on the field trip.
More than 20 people signed up for this field trip we did as a pilot for the upcoming boot camp. More than we could accommodate, so to be fair we split the second day up into 3 groups. The last group’s courthouse trip is September the 9th. We offered this trip at a very cheap price to see how it would work and everyone loved it and learned so much. It only cost $29, how much cheaper can you get for 2 days! One day is spent learning how to research from home, the second day we go out into the field and go through real files and watch a tax deed auction. Next time we offer this field it will be a 2 full days (instead of the ½ days) and the price will be much higher. You can probably add a zero to the end and multiple that number by 2 for the new price.
Thanks for those that participated in the trip and helped us make it a great experience for you. We still have room for a couple more people on the last courthouse trip on this pilot program. Sign up fast, they don’t last. (Click this link.)

Help! Is this Procrastination or Perfection —- It’s hard to tell one from the other but both of them are equally dangerous!!! – (here’s my true story)
Over the last week I have been spending hours working on this special report/ eBook on the benefits and steps to investing in tax lien certificates. Every time I think it’s ready to be launched I find something else to put in it or revise. At this rate it will be months before I even get this special report out there.
Over that time… while I was busy pouring my blood, sweat and tears into this eBook, a few of my friends and students have called. When I tell them about this eBook I am working on they become immediately interested in the topic. So much so that I have sent a couple of them advanced copies of the eBook so I wouldn’t have to answer the many questions they have on th topic. That small glimpse into the process has done more than I ever expected, they are depleting my source of these great tax lien certificates. You see they are so enthusiastic about these investments, that they’ve had me purchase several certificates for them already! So in additions to writing the eBook/ Special Report I have been selling them the certificates or consulting with them on which are the best ones to buy.
(okay, STOP THE MADNESS – I tell myself)
That’s when I realized that sometimes we can outsmart ourselves and sometimes slow action is just as bad as no action. Here I was putting so much work into getting it PERFECT that I didn’t realize that The eBook/ special report will never be “Perfect.” I will always find a better way to say something or new information to include in that eBook. We have to learn to take action and if need be adjust our course as we go along.
This reminds me of a famous person who once said… Progress Always Involves Risk,
With that said…. Here Goes!

This Wednesday, I’m taking the second group of students to the Courthouse for an Auction and review of the tax deed files.
As I sit and prepare for that day, I am fielding questions from other students and investors about the world of tax deed and tax liens. So I’m thinking wouldn’t it be great if I invited those who needed the help and training to one of my favorite spots on a weekly or biweekly basis.
This is what I am thinking. I can set a meet up spot for all of my students at my favorite ‘satellite office’ Panera Bread. I’m there often and we can set a time and date to meet biweekly, very casual, no RSVP’s needed. Come at your leisure and we can discuss your progress and speed bumps.
Would you be interested? Answer here on the blog and let me know. I’ll decide. It will cost you though; you will have to buy me a mountain dew (my drug) and /or a cookie 🙂
(One other catch- you have to be a student. That means you came to one of my classes or bought the Home Study material. I can’t help you if you are not willing to learn and take the first step) If you are too far, I can record these sessions and email you the audio.
