Tax Free Wealth Building & Self-Directed IRA's

My First Private Lender

Once upon a time, I was an inexperienced real estate investor. The first private lender I ever got was my brother's mother-in-law. I had no job, $15k in credit card debt and ZERO EXPERIENCE. The first note (non-IRA) I ever did was in Spring of 2004. It was a 5 year note for $60k with 18% interest paid annually. I got lucky because I had a family member who trusted me even though I had almost no experience.

If you don't think you would be so lucky as to get a family member to hand over some cash on your very first deal, let's talk about what a private lender really is and why they agree to give real estate investors their money.

What is a Private Lender?

A private lender is someone who has cash that is willing to partner with you or invests/loans to you on a real estate deal.

Assets can include:
* Savings accounts
* Checking accounts
* CD's
* Brokerage accounts
* Liquidated mutual funds
* Stocks
* Bonds
* Retirement accounts
* Health savings accounts
* Lines of credit

Why would a private lender give you money to do your deals? It's simple, really. Let's be real - the alternative investments suck and the returns are better and more predictable in real estate. CD's are currently paying 1%, annuities are paying 4% max, bond rates are at a 3.85% return and the stock market is only averaging about a 6-8% return.

So why would they NOT partner on a real estate deal with you if they like and trust you? If you were a private lender with an old 401k, based on the information below, where you would rather invest?

Self-Directed IRA's

By now, you must know our favorite source of funding for our real estate deals is PRIVATE MONEY. And how do we get that private money? Through a Self-Directed IRA. A Self-Directed IRA is an individual retirement account where the owner funds real estate deals. It's basically a retirement account that YOU control and allows investments into several sources that are allowed by the law.

Some prohibited Self-Directed IRA investments are:
* Life insurance contracts, IRC § 408(a)(3)
* S-Corp Stock
* Collectibles IRC § 408(m)
* Works of art
* Rugs
* Antiques
* Metals (other than gold, silver, platinum, or palladium bullion)
* Gems
* Stamps
* Coins (except certain U.S. minted coins)
* Alcoholic beverages
* Certain other tangible personal property

If you are wondering why you are just now hearing about Self-Directed IRA's, it's ok, you are not alone. More retirement custodians and administrators only allow a limited amount of traditional investment options, such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds. The reasons for that are usually because it requires additional paperwork, additional processing fees or just a flat-out lack of knowledge (that's what we're here for).

A Self-Directed IRA is simpler than you might think. It can be broken down into four steps:

1. Establish your account - you can do this by filling out a new account application
2. Fund your account - this can be done through either a contribution, rollover or transfer
3. Find your investment - real estate, note, private company, etc.
4. Fund your investment - you'll need to complete a Group Investment Authorization form and some additional supporting documentation

That's it, really.

Some of the many advantages of using of a Self-Directed IRA are:
* Compounding wealth (due to tax-sheltered status) Tax advantages
* Asset protection
* Wealth for future generations
* Investment diversification
* Invest in what you know
* Seven account types can be Self-Directed
* Almost anyone can have a Self-Directed IRA
* Even small balance accounts can participate in non-traditional investing
* Millions of dollars are available to finance your real estate deals

Why Self-Direct?

Profits on Investment
By using your Self-Directed IRA to invest in real estate, you're investing in a tangible asset. Investing in real estate also provides the potential of generating a passive income stream for you to utilize, while at the same time protecting your initial investment.

Invest in What You Know
Self-directed IRA's allow account owners to maximize investment returns by investing in areas of expertise and private as-sets. As with all IRA investments, taxes on in-vestment returns are deferred until funds are withdrawn from the account.

Traditional financial planners have complicated fee structures, generally not designed to favor the investor's best interests. Self-Directed IRA's offer simple, straight-forward pricing.

Set it and Forget it
Self-Directed investing makes you the CEO of your retirement funds, and who doesn't like that idea?
In addition to tax-free profits, asset protection, tax deductions, as well as estate planning, you're able to make tax-free investments in assets that are familiar and comfortable to you. By using your Self-Directed IRA to invest in real estate, you're investing in a tangible asset. Investing in real estate also provides the potential of generating a passive income stream for you to utilize, while at the same time protecting your initial investment.

We are finishing up a property at 6911 Bear Swamp Road in Medina, Ohio. It's been a huge project for us and we were able to do it because we had a private lender that loaned us $155,000.

Unlimited Funding Handed Right to You

Do you want to know a secret? In my experience - once a private lender walks away from funding your deal with 15% of your profit, they are pretty happy, so you know what they will do after that?? Come back and give you more money AND introduce you to their family and friends.

Don't settle for the small wholesale deals with small profits. I know that funding is the #1 bottleneck that STOPS investors like you from making the moolah you deserve. Come learn my all of my tricks for raising ALL the funding you could EVER want.

What I am teaching is EXACTLY what I do in my own business - the business that allows me to consistently flip 2-6 houses every month (without using any of my own cash of credit).

If you join us, you'll learn more about raising private money, where to find private lenders, how to utilize Self-Directed IRA's and SO MUCH MORE. This information will put you miles and miles ahead of any competition in your market.

    Tapping The Invisible Bank = Simple And Straightforward

    That's right
    YOU'RE the in-demand asset here.
    You're the prettiest girl at this profit prom
    You're the one doing THEM a flavor.

    Because right now, we're in the beginning of the single greatest transfer of wealth
    that ANY of us have ever witnessed!

    And these 1-percenters need YOUR help... so they can capitalize on this enormous
    opportunity... and achieve safe, reliable, returns on their money... instead of
    watching that money sit lifelessly in their savings... where it gets chewed up by

    In Exchange?

    They let you leverage THEIR fortune... to quickly build your
    own... 30, 50, 70, 100K at a time... so that before you know it,
    you and your family are ALL set for life!

    It's a true WIN/WIN all around.

    THEY get to earn returns on capital that would otherwise be
    sitting in savings solitary, depressed and lonely...

    YOU get to effortlessly close deeply discounted, "CASH BUYER
    ONLY" deals ... because for the first time in your life, you have
    your own personal PRIVATE bank powering all high profit
    flips FOR you.

    But hold on... let's slow down for a second here.

    In fact, I can actually FEEL that self-doubt creeping into your
    head right now...

    Your skepticism is still perfectly understandable.

    And I'm not gonna fight you on ANY of that.

    The truth is... you're absolutely right.

    But You're Getting Cause
    And Effect Mixed Up

    It isn't my reputation that gives me the ability to raise "no money down"

    It was my ability to raise "no money down" funding... that allowed me to build
    my reputation in the first place.

    In 2003: Started With NOTHING

    • Just Quit My Job, Couldn't Stomach Any More 12 Hour Days
    • $15,000 In Debt
    • Maxed Out Credit Cards
    • Knew Very Little About Real Estate

    Yet... even with all those problems...

    By applying just a primitive version of the funding system I use

    I was able tap into the Invisible Bank... and get a complete
    stranger to willingly write me a check for $60,000.00... which I
    used to flip my first big profit house.

    I mean, that one loan LITERALLY launched my investing career

    That one loan is LITERALLY the reason I'm here talking to you

    Because after that deal... it was off to the races! Smooth sailing.

    Because that year, I was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer.

    Which has something like 7% survival rate... by the
    MOST optimistic estimates.

    So I was on what could have easily
    Become my death bed...

    I needed other people to funding my deals for me... or I was out of
    the game.

    And with a wife and three kids relying on me to eat, I couldn't afford to be out of the game.

    I HAD to refine my system for funding my deals... despite the
    fact I didn't have any cash or credit to bring to the table...

    AND the fact that the economy and the market conditions were
    ALL stacked against me.

    Remember, this was 2011 ... right in the middle of one of the biggest recessions in American history.

    I Had To Make Them An Irresistible Offer
    They Couldn't Say No To..
    Because where you can do THAT...

    When you known what these investors REAL want... and present a clear, logical
    process for giving it to them...

    Getting a complete stranger to write you a check for six-figures becomes pain-by-
    numbers single.

    Fast Forward to today:

    My "Freedom Funding" system has since been responsible for literally producing 10s of millions of dollars in pure profit!

    You DON'T need to be some expert" in order to completely
    and safely flip properties dK 30K... or even 100K profit at
    a time.

    When you break it down, making BIG money in real estate is
    EXTREMELY simple.

    You only THINK it's complicated because until now, you've had to try and learn it from a powerless position.

    Because when you're the head of your very own Invisible Bank...

    When you have hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars of PRIVATE money at your disposal...

    Then all of sudden, the process of doing big profit deals become SO simple, you could write it on a napkin.

    Hell.. you could write it all on a postage stamp!

    Ready? Here it comes...

    Step 1: Find a piece of underpriced property.

    Step 2: Buy it.

    That's it!

    You Could Even Skip Step 1...

    And get those DEEPLY discounted properties delivered
    to your doorstep... without you having to go out, find and negotiate those deals yourself.

    "The Magnetic Market Domination
    Feeder Funnel"

    However, there IS one drawback about using this strategy.

    But that won't a problem for you...

    "I'll actually fund your deals FOR you... using MY secret stash of
    Invisible Bank funding... just like I do for dozens of my
    students each month!

    Best part is: While investors have happily paid me up to 40K for
    this kind of personal advisory (and received an impressive
    return ON that investment)...
