In this episode, Blair and Jeff offer three perfect samples of how they work out their deals. No matter how difficult sometimes it may be, there is always a way. One of their main goals is to learn through their experiences so they can teach you how to make your money faster!

They tackle various real estate topics. Learn how to approach sellers in regards to: eviction, them getting a new mortgage, defaulting on an agreement, reverse mortgages, and land contracts. Discover how to structure an acquisitionist’s commission and base salary and how to handle objections.

Finally, acquire skills in marketing for buyers. Always be cautious as to whom you will put in a house; they must follow-through financially! Find out about the pre-screening call, how to respond to various typical questions buyers or tenants make, how to verify their income, and knowing the screening mechanism before screening a tenant.
