PROBATE REAL ESTATE-EXECUTOR FEE POSSIBLE EVEN IN A SHORT SALE - 09/30/10 12:34 PM
Wow, you learn everyday and what I found out last year (2009) when I completed my first Probate Short Sale was this is another avenue of business in my Probate Real Estate system. For 23 years years I have had 5 levels of earning opportunity with probate homes... (1)Wholesale purchase then flip for ($25k to $50K profits) (2)Broker to end user buyer and double end the sale (4-6% com) (3) Take the probate home listing after developing a relationship with the Excutor (3% com) (4) Over bid at court confirmation sales for investor or end user clients (3-6% com and Flip (1 comments)
PROBATE LEADS PLUS TRAINING - 09/28/10 12:21 PM
My Probate Real Estate business has been very good to me over my 23 years of buying and selling Probates. As a Probate Agent the niche helped me still earn Six Figures over the last 3+ years when the market tanked. My Team is Top 50 Rated in Alameda County and Probate Homes is the reason. I'm moving more to the training side now as I turn over my business to my team and I will be training agents and investors on how to do what I have been doing. This is for California or out of State based agents and (0 comments)
How I Structure a Probate Purchase to a Commission - 09/24/10 11:55 AM
In my Probate Real Estate System I have been matching estate sellers (heirs) with buyers and mostly under the radar of other agents and investors. I have been doing this for 23 years and it has been a golden goose for my real estate business. My GaryDTeam is a top producer, I earn Six figures (Yes even during the last 3.5 yrs of this current down market) and I owe it all to Probate Homes. I don't understand why more agents aren't taking the time to learn this niche. When I make an offer to an estate I'm coming in wholesale (1 comments)
MYTHS ABOUT DEPOSITS FOR PROBATE SALES - 09/23/10 10:07 AM
In my Probate Real Estate Business I make offers for investors (including myself) and end user buyers who are moving in. I match estates who wish to sell (during the probate process or after) with buyers who are looking to flip, or hold as rentals or move in for their family home. This has been a wealth of business as a Probate Agent and my flips as an investor have provided profits from $25K to $100K. Probate Homes are a Six Figure Opportunity! In California the old probate law requires a 10% deposit from the buyer before an offer can be (0 comments)
HOW ABOUT I PROVIDE YOUR PROBATE LEADS - 09/22/10 10:29 AM
In my Probate Real Estate business of 23 years the life blood has been the weekly probate leads I track form the courthouse. I average 100 probate estates with real estate in the two counties I search each month. Think about this, 100 homes, most free and clear that are not listed and at least 50% are going to sell within the next 7 month probate process. As a probate agent I sell these probates to investors who are looking to flip, to landlords who want long term rentals, and to end user buyers looking to move in and are tired (6 comments)
BUYERS TIRED OF COMPETITION----TRY THIS APPROACH - 09/13/10 02:23 PM
In my Probate Real Estate business (23 yrs) I have been flipping probates for 23 years and earning great profits. I also have been helping estates obtain high retail when they sell the estate property by avoiding the wholesale buyers (like me) with a specific approach. This has proved a very lucrative niche as well and I want to make sure you all understand that being a Probate Agent is not about ONLY wholesaling. Probates are Great! Another approach I do is to help buyers (FHA and VA buyers) who are having a terrible time trying to purchase a home because (0 comments)
PROBATE INVESTORS WHO NETWORK WITH (PROBATE) AGENTS - 09/11/10 11:13 PM
In my Probate Real Estate system, I teach my investors students who are not directly working with me on how to connect with local real estate agents and develop a network which can bring great dividends. You as a Probate Investor need real estate agents so you can gain the tools they use to help you buy and sell probates. If you are earning $25K to $50K per SFR Probate flip then making your agent a 3% commission really makes sense. You will be a priority to this agent and will reap the benefit. But It get's better! Probate Agents are (0 comments)
How Is Your Real Estate Business Going - 09/10/10 03:20 PM
I hope you are doing well with your RE biz and I have been blogging weekly on my Probate Real Estate Business and what it has done for me over the last 20+ years. If you are not adding Probate Agent to your business plan let me give you some food for thought. Less than 3% of Americans earn $100K or more per year. Google it yourself but you will find the number is around 2.7% of Americans earn Six Figures. With the downturn in our Real Estate Market from 2007 forward many real estate agents and lenders have gone out (0 comments)

Investors...Now is the Time For Probate Flipping or Holding - 09/07/10 10:38 AM
My local market is a little weird right now but Flipping is going on strong. FHA and VA financing is allowing investors to turn their REO and TS flips fast and the market is fairly strong if priced right. Many cash investors are out there trying to buy right. Some to flip but many are holding for the next Boom. Yes it's a weird topic to mention now but the Next Real Estate Boom is being predicted by many and should start around 2012 and go about 7 years. The investors now buying at these historic low prices will reap the (0 comments)

EARN FIVE WAYS WITH PROBATE HOMES AS EITHER INVESTOR OR AGENT OR BOTH - 09/04/10 12:49 PM
What I do with probate real estate is the following. We track every probate in my area and send out our marketing information which has been tweaked many times over the last 23 years of working probates. We follow up our letters with a phone call to the Petitioner/Executor asking if they received the GaryDTeam's material. It doesn't matter if they did or did not but it opens the door for the conversation and a relationship to begin if this is possible. I first approach the estate as wanting to bring an investor in to cash them out within 30 days. (0 comments)
WHAT IS THIS PROBATE REAL ESTATE OPPORTUNITY YOU ARE MISSING - 09/02/10 11:19 AM
Imagine working a market (Probate Real Estate) as an agent where you know of a property which is going to be sold, at possibly a discount, and you are the only agent working it. You have no listing, no buyer but you end up with a double commission (4-6%) and a win win situation for the seller, the buyer and yourself.Tis is my world of being a Probate Agent and I'm now sharing it. What about being an investor and buying then flipping this probate home without competition! If you did one of these per month which is conservative, and at (0 comments)
I Made a Probate Home Offer, then Sold It for 6% Commissions - 09/01/10 10:59 AM
Probate Real Estate is my business and I have been blogging weekly on what I have been doing as a Real Estate Agent for the last 23 years which has increased my production and income every year. This is a niche most real estate agents don't enter. Probate Homes is a SIX FIGURE opportunity for Real Estates Agents or Investors so check it out People. Many of you have but I expected more interest especially if your business is struggling like so many of our fellow agents. Recently we made an offer to an estate early in the probate process and (1 comments)
