Investor/Realtor Joins Us to Teach Free “How to Buy Portland Houses for Sale” Webinar

PRESS RELEASE

Portland, OR — veteran local investor/realtor joins investor/mentor to share their battle-proven strategies and tactics to beat competitive bids and tap into cheap, unlimited investment property financing to buy Portland houses for sale in free webinar October 3rd.

As both investors and primary home buyers in the market are already aware and the RMLS Market Action for August 2012 reports, housing inventories are shrinking. With the same demand directed at fewer properties, that means increased competition and frustration for retail and wholesale buyers.

Full-time investor John Sheldon continues to succeed in this changing environment, regularly completing real estate investment transactions that generate mid five-figure to six-figure payouts. But even he admits that the market has grown more difficult.

“When you’ve got investors and buyers bidding on the same Portland houses for sale in a low-inventory, low-value market, that means investors work harder for less profit,” Sheldon explains. “That’s why I wanted to find someone who really understands the Portland market and has a history of successfully winning in multiple-offer situations to present to my investor group How to Invest in Real Estate Portland.

“Tracey Branche has that experience. I’m excited to have her join me and share her tricks of the trade. Attendees to this free webinar are going to get a real leg up on the competition.”

Tracey Branche is a real estate broker with Oregon First and recipient of the Five Star Real Estate Agent award for 2011 & 2012. In addition to being a licensed realtor for over 10 years, she has been investing in real estate for 14 years and is currently on the board of the Portland chapter of the Real Estate Invesors Association.

In addition to Branche, Sheldon will also be sharing the results of a recent successful transaction of his. “I’m going to pull back the curtain on a deal I just completed,” reports Sheldon. “Attendees are going to learn how to use creative seller financing the way I did, to open the doors to all the cheap funding and arbitrage income they could ever want.”

“They’re also going to get an inside look at how they can actually quick-turn Portland houses for sale and still collect monthly paychecks from those properties for years after they’ve sold them.”

Press Release – Portland Real Estate Investment Veteran Teaches “Marketing without Money”

PORTLAND, OR — local, veteran real estate investor/mentor teams up with international speaker/consultant for one-time only, free webinar on September 5th, to teach Portland real estate investment entrepreneurs how to find sellers before they list, without spending a dime.

Portland real estate investor John Sheldon has participated in the dramatic rise, precipitous fall, and slow recovery of the Portland real estate investment market since 2001.

Even though he has personally made money on nearly every one of over 200 transactions, he watched over the past four years as the metaphorical ground crumbled beneath the feet of hundreds of investors and in cases, devastated their financial lives.

He decided to do something about it.

In early 2012, Sheldon created How to Invest in Real Estate Portland, a free real estate investment group and joint venture partnering club. The group educates and empowers new and experienced Portland real estate investors to succeed in the new real estate market, with its fluctuating values, shifting economics, and rapidly changing marketing practices.

“I love to teach people to safely profit and to avoid problems,” states Sheldon. “That’s why it’s been so rewarding for me to hold these webinars. I’ve gotten tremendous feedback from members and mentoring partners. They’ve told me they’ve discovered new confidence and made or saved thousands because of advice I’ve shared.

“But one of the biggest problems I’ve heard,” continues Sheldon, “is the lack of funds to carry on effective marketing. I’ve regularly spent thousands of dollars per month in direct marketing, but not many investors have that capability.

“So, I went in search of the best local resource I could find to help investors find low or no-cost methods of marketing. I found exactly what I was looking for in Jerry Fletcher.”

Jerry Fletcher of Z-axis Marketing, Inc. is a business development expert. He founded his consulting and speaking agency in 1990 when he left his position as CEO of a successful Portland advertising agency.

A professional speaker for 17 years, Fletcher is also a Certified Professional Consultant and prolific author, with three books, seven audio programs and four video programs.

Fletcher has birthed high-tech companies in garages, counseled boards of directors and worked with successful companies in conference rooms and kitchens.

Known also as “The Networking Ninja”, he has helped business people from companies small and large across America to discover new ways to build trust and mutually profitable business relationships.

Together in this one-time, free event, Sheldon and Fletcher will explore and reveal concepts of zero-cost marketing that will empower real estate entrepreneurs to:

  • Get to home owners before they list
  • Stay top of mind with neighborhood authorities
  • Make sure everyone they know is working to bring them profitable properties

“Real estate investing injects new cash and life into local communities, helps sellers, and keeps Portland great,” emphasizes Sheldon. “This live webinar event will remove the biggest obstacle many investors face today. We invite any Portland real estate investment entrepreneur facing these issues to attend.”

Real Estate Consultant Recommends Portland For Smart Investing- Press Release

PORTLAND, OR: Local real estate consultant recommends real estate investors choose Portland, Oregon properties to diversify investment portfolios in a window that may rapidly close. “Portland is experiencing a a heightened demand for real estate due to the median pricing and the safety statistics as compared to other parts of the country. Numerous experts and experienced investors are advising that this is the best market and time to secure real estate as the demand for rental properties is soaring,” observes John Sheldon of How to Invest in Real Estate Portland.

In light of the HARP 2.0 (Home Affordable Refinance Program) that is designed to help Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loan holders, now may be the time to take action before the foreclosure market slows down. It is impossible to know the impact that the HARP 2.0 refinance program will have on the real estate inventory; it may help stabilize home prices and reduce foreclosures in the future. There is also talk of a possible principal forgiveness program, and while it’s still early to know if this will truly come to pass, such a program could radically affect the current foreclosure market. 

Real estate has long been regarded as the most secure investment. Gurus like Robert Kiyosaki, Donald Trump and even Tony Robbins advise that real estate investing is the most solid way to build and create wealth while benefiting from the tax structure. Seasoned and first time property investors in Portland are turning to Sheldon’s services as a local, well respected real estate consultant and seasoned real estate investor through his free training and partnering site at http://howtoinvestinrealestateportland.com.

At present record numbers of Americans have declared bankruptcy and have lost their homes to foreclosure. These are the same folks who real estate consultants say make the best tenants as they will more than likely rent for a minimum of 3 to 5 years before their credit can improve enough to qualify for the purchase of another home. Additionally, they tend to be more responsible tenants who still have the ownership mentality and take better care of rental property.

Investors from all over the United States are setting their sights on Portland, and real estate consultants are helping them find the best bargains in the foreclosure market. Real estate investors looking for instruction, training and assistance will find that a local real estate consultant has much more access to and insight on the foreclosure gems that are  available. Portland’s professional team of real estate experts can be reached at (503)539-9094 or online.
