Earlier this year, we released an exclusive course called The Beginner’s Deal Finding Guide.

Jaren Barnes and I spent over a year putting this content together and we poured our heart and soul into it.

Why? Because we felt it was some of the most important guidance we could offer the world, especially those who are just getting started in the real estate investing business.

You see, when we were beginners, finding deals was BY FAR the biggest obstacle we had to overcome.

I spent years struggling with this before I finally found some strategies that worked.

It was a long, difficult road before I cracked this code. In fact, I almost gave up before I got there (which would have been the mother of all tragedies).

This is always a relevant issue for every real estate investor because if an investor can’t find deals, nothing else is even worth talking about. When you’re able to find high-equity properties at deeply discounted prices, everything else gets a lot easier.

We don’t want you to waste time, so our goal in this course is to show you all the options you have available, which options are most ideal based on how much time, money and energy you have available, and whichever one(s) you choose, we’ll show you precisely how each of them works!

What to Expect

The Beginner's Deal Finding Guide LogoThis course takes a different approach than most of the other real estate investing courses out there.

The average course will attempt to provide an end-to-end set of instructions on one specific business model. 

In The Beginner’s Deal Finding Guide, we focus on one single aspect (how to find deals) that applies to EVERY real estate investing business model out there.

We don’t talk about things like:

  • How do handle due diligence
  • How to get properties sold
  • How to set up your business from scratch
  • How to navigate through the closing process
  • How to manage tenants and contractors

We have one, singular focus with this course – to show you all the different marketing strategies you can employ to find the best deals in your market, and how you can start implementing each of these strategies today.

In other words, this course goes deep on one issue, rather than wide on a variety of issues involved in running a real estate investing business.

Course Outline

Each lesson in this course comes with a lot of value (multiple videos, downloadable assets, and more). Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll get access to if you decide to sign up.

Module 1: Motivated Seller Psychology

Module 2: Time-Intensive Strategies

DFG module 2

Module 3: Money-Intensive Strategies

DFG module 3

Finding What Works for You

When we started putting this course content together, we realized pretty quickly that even though there are many different strategies that work, not every strategy is the right fit for every person.

With this in mind, we broke down the lessons and modules based on two major considerations:

  1. Time Intensive Strategies: The marketing strategies that require more time and less money.
  2. Money Intensive Strategies: The marketing strategies that require more money and less time.

Everyone has a different financial situation and schedule, so our goal isn’t to push one specific deal finding method that doesn’t align with your natural skills and resources.

Our goal is to show you what’s out there and help you pick the options that align with your greatest strengths and allow you to capitalize on the time or money resources you have available.

As you can see from the chart above, some strategies are better suited for extroverts and others will be easier for introverts.

If you’re someone who hates talking to people, then don’t push yourself to knock on doors and cold call people – you’ll drive yourself crazy!

However, if you have great interpersonal skills and you enjoy having these conversations, you could be a rockstar in these areas where others will struggle.

Likewise, if you’re an introvert and you don’t have much money to work with (this was my situation when I was getting started), you’ll probably be better suited for strategies like driving for dollars, going after foreclosures and finding deals on ad posting directories, among other things.

The point is, there’s something (and usually several things) for everyone. The trick is to understand what you’re good at and what you have the time and money to pursue and focus your energy there.

Who This Course Is For

If you’re brand new to real estate investing and you have no idea how to go about finding the best deals outside of what you’re seeing on Zillow, this course is for you.

Likewise, if you’ve done a deal or two, but you’re still struggling to find a sustainable, repeatable way to find great deals, again and again, this course is for you.

If you’ve already specialized in one real estate investing niche (like flipping land or flipping houses) and you’re trying to find deals in a completely new buy-and-hold strategy, this course is for you.

Who This Course Isn’t For

If you’re an experienced real estate investor, you’ve already found one or two marketing strategies that are working well and you’re not trying to pivot into a new investing strategy, you don’t need this course.

If you’re a land investor and you’re already employing the direct mail strategies we talk about in the Land Investing Masterclass, you don’t need this course.

You may find some of the strategies in this course interesting, especially if you’re trying to pursue other opportunities outside of your land business, but as far as the land flipping model goes, the things we cover in this course won’t be nearly as useful as what you’ll already know from our land course.

We’ve received a lot of great feedback from the folks who have been through this course. For the right person, it’s a GREAT resource that can be referred to again and again.

The only “this isn’t what I expected” feedback we’ve heard is from people who were interested specifically in the land business, and they already understood how to find those deals with direct mail. If you’re only looking for land deals, a far better value will be the land course, which dives very deep into the best deal finding strategies for that particular model, along with everything else you need to succeed as a land flipper.

Jump In!

This is the information that would have solved the biggest problem when I was getting started, by giving us a multitude of different ways (with actual, clear, step-by-step instructions) to find deals in any mark, and on any type of property.

If you’re struggling to find deals or you’re just genuinely curious about what other options are out there, there’s a lot you can learn from this course.
