The last week has been crazy around here for several reasons.
One, we held that private money workshop last week and it went awesome… but we’re working hard to get another live workshop up next week for those who weren’t able to make it.
Two, I’ve been working hard to systematize my businesses as much as possible so I can enjoy the fruits of being an entrepreneur (both real estate and other businesses). Systems are everything when it comes to true financial freedom… and to this point I’ve been doing too much work on my own. I hired a great virtual assistant at the beginning of this month and am creating process maps and videos of everything so she can help me regain my sanity.
Content From Me Has Suffered… But Not From These Guys…
Because of this, I haven’t been able to put any quality content on our site in about a week or so. I have a brand new editorial content schedule that will go in effect next week… and we’ll be posting at least 3 new articles, tutorials, resources, etc. a week.
But, a few other people in the real estate investing world have been picking up the slack for me recently as far as quality free real estate investing and short sale success training goes.
Josh Cantwell has been putting out some truly amazingly content packed and "meaty" step by step training on short sales the past week. The problem is… I haven’t been able to get the word out to you so you can get the short sale success blueprint training before Josh takes it down.
Well… here it is (I hope I’m not too late in telling you about it!)
The Short Sale Success Blueprint and Manifesto 2.0
Josh Cantwell is a real estate investor who specializes in short sales. As you know, short sales are picking up around the country with all of these foreclosures; however, banks have started to do short sales a bit differently (different than they did 2 years ago)… and investors have had to adapt or die.
Anyhow, last week Josh put out a few hours of free short sale training (for today’s market) by way of video… I think he took those down from the main site for now… but yesterday he launched what he calls the " Short Sale Success Manifesto 2.0 "… which is a precursor to their Short Sale Success Blueprint product launch this Thursday (8/28).
What is the Short Sale Manifesto 2.0?
The short sale manifesto 2.0 is a pretty darn good piece of up to date training and info on short sales in 2008 and 2009. You know how most of these "free report" type things that come out before a product launch are usually pretty fluffy and not full of actionable content?
Well… this is a bit different.
Here’s a bit of what I read in the free Short Sale Manifesto:
- Top 9 mistakes new short sale investors make
- What is a short sale?
- Step by Step How to Negotiate a Short Sale in 2008
- Lender changes
- Understanding the "option contract" and closings
- Why Land Trusts may be the "wrong path"
- How to work w/ realtors in short sales and why they are a great resource for you
- What the FICO score has to do with Short sales
- … and a bunch more
Anyhow, this thing is free (just have to enter your email address to get it)… and it’s some pretty darn meaty content. Well worth the 30-45 minutes it’ll take you to go through it (grab a notepad and pen too).
Both you and I know that most great free content and training like this is a way for the product creators to get us to check out the information they provide right before they launch a product. Well… this is true in this circumstance as well… but why the heck not download the report… read it and take away the actionable pieces of content from it to apply in your business… then unsubscribe from their list if you don’t want to hear from them anymore.
It’s a no lose for you.
What Is The Short Sale Success Blueprint?
Here it is straight up.
The Short Sale Success Blueprint is a coaching program that Josh Cantwell (a short sale investor… he actually does short sales each and every month) is launching this week (he’s had the coaching program going for several months in "Beta"… but he’s updated the training w/ the new short sale market… and is taking on some more students).
However, they’re going about it a bit differently than most other products (and I like it).
What’s going to happen is this Thursday at 12 noon EST (9am PST) Josh is releasing the written home study portion of the program (this is about 500 pages worth of in-depth step by step content Josh created this year based on what he’s learned in ’08 on how short sales must now be done in order to be successful)… for free.
Basically, he’s sending you the whole written home study portion of his coaching program for free on Thursday.
But… there is a catch…
Like everything… there’s not a free lunch… and this is no different.
The catch is that in exchange for the free home study portion (again, the 500+ pages of his new short sale material shipped to your door)… he wants you to try out the coaching program. The coaching program is a monthly membership that includes online training, hard copy materials, one on one coaching, and a bunch more (I’m not sure what it all includes to tell you the truth… I guess we’ll see on Thursday).
This monthly membership is cheaper than you’re thinking it is (way cheaper in fact)… and you can of course cancel anytime.
So in summary, you can "try out" the Short Sale Success Blueprint program (it’s one of the top 2 short sale education I’ve seen out there that is actually up to date and very actionable) for a really cheap price… you’ll get the free home study portion that you can keep even if you cancel… and you can actually cancel the membership if you want and you’ll basically get the entire 500+ page training home study course for the cost of the first month of the coaching (which again… is really cheap… way cheaper than you’d expect).
So… that’s about it.
How Will The Short Sale Manifesto 2.0 and Short Sale Success Blueprint Help you?
Well… this one is kind of tough. There have been about 15 different so called "real estate experts" contact me this week to "promote" their product. 12 of them were crap (a couple of them were by pretty well known "gurus" too)… and 3 were excellent. This is one of the excellent ones… for a couple reasons.
- There is a ton of free education that you get from Josh for free even if you never buy anything from them. The Short Sale Manifesto 2.0 is a great piece of education… you can get at least a few things that you can pull away from it and put to action right away if you’re new to short sales or have experience in them.
- They’re basically giving away about most of the education that they’ve created (this isn’t half baked content w/ an upsell… this is fully complete content) so you can see that they are the real deal… and they hope many of the people will decide to try out and stick with the online coaching program. Essentially, this is an extremely great value for the $.
This free manifesto and almost free home study course you’ll get (of course for trying out the online coaching for a month) will teach you step by step how to successfully invest in short sales in 2008. It’s almost a no brainer… and basically risk free (except for the little bit you’ll pay for the home study portion of the coaching program. .. again… way cheaper than you’re thinking… way cheaper… seriously).
My Recommendation on the Short Sale Success Blueprint and Short Sale Manifesto 2.0
When I feel passionate about the high value and quality of a product (or free stuff) I sometimes try to get people to get it through their heads that this is worth taking the time looking at… and sometimes come across as "salesy". I don’t mean it… I don’t mean it at all.
Here it is.
I would recommend that you go and download the Short Sale Manifesto 2.0 and take away what you can from that. It’s free so you have nothing to lose… and it truly is great content.
Next, on Thursday Josh will email you about the offer that he has (the one where you can get the entire home study portion of the coaching program for almost free). Look it over and decide whether or not it’s right for you. It’ll be right for many people… and it won’t be right for a bunch of people also.
I can tell you that if you are either interested in doing short sales or you are already doing short sales with little to moderate success… it’ll be well worth the small investment on Thursday to get the almost free home study course and to see what the coaching program is all about.
As always, this thingy won’t solve all of your real estate woes. If you don’t put to action what you learn, you’re investment will be wasted and you might as well go down the street and give that money to a homeless person so the money will do someone some good.
If you are an action taker and will put to use what the free manifesto and the almost free home study course will teach you… you’ll look back on it and be glad that you finally took action and put what you’ve learned to work.
Well… as always… I’m rambling… so I’ll leave you with the links again… and I’ll be here for any questions you have.
My Final Thoughts on Short Sale Success Blueprints and the free Manifesto
In summary… I recommend getting the free manifesto (link is below) for sure… and truly believe the offer that Josh will put out there on Thursday is a great value… but it’s right for only the people will will do what he says and put it to action.
Here’s the link again: (this will take you to download the Short Sale Manifesto)

Remember, the "free" (not really free… but almost) home study courses go live tomorrow at 12noon EST. Since he’s giving these away… there aren’t a ton to go around… so be sure to be there at 12noon EST to see what it’s all about so you can tell if it’s right for you (again the content and resources are great and I highly recommend them… you just need to decide if you’re ready to put them to action).
Go Here At 12noon EST Thursday 8/28
P.S. – If you take Josh up on his crazy "free" home study offer on Thursday through the links on this page (they’re affiliate links… so I earn a commission if you buy… and I’ll kick you back most of my commission as a rebate) … and you send me your receipt… I’ll shoot you back part of your investment… then it really is pretty much free. Just trying to get you the most value for your $.
