How to Get Practically Free Houses with Joe Lucas, Esq.

Yeah, we thought that headline would get your attention—and yeah, it’s for real. Attorney Joe Lucas will discuss how to find and get all those “zombie houses” you’ve heard about—the ones where the bank is refusing to foreclose and yet the owner doesn’t want them. More importantly, he’ll talk about how you can use little-known legal processes to wipe out that mortgage, getting the property for just the amount of the back taxes and court fees!

You’ll learn:

  • How to identify opportunities to get free or nearly free property (Hint: they’re not found on the MLS!);
  • Information sources and data mining for the real estate investor;
  • How to obtain title through a quiet title action;
  • Which zombie foreclosures are worth pursuing, and which to run from;
  • How to time the payment of the property taxes so you don’t spend a bunch of money before you make money

   And most importantly, you’ll know a strategy that almost no real estate entrepreneurs are aware of, and see profit-making opportunities where others don’t!

Joe Lucas is an attorney with practice focused on real estate matters. He operates a 6-attorney firm with offices located in Dayton, Cincinnati, and Canton. Joe is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Before practicing law, Joe served in the U.S. Air Force.

Early Meeting Active Investors:
Give Yourself Some Credit: Hack Your Way to Better Leverage with Matthew Adams

We’re all taught to buy without banks, but the truth is that having access to traditional lenders is a big leg up when it comes to building a portfolio. And the other truth is, most of the credit that you can get as a real estate entrepreneur is based on your PERSONAL credit. That’s why it’s worth it to know how to hack the credit system (without cheating, “credit repair” or other costly or ethically iffy methods). If you’re hoping to get unsecured credit lines, conventional mortgages, and other credit-dependent loans soon, join Matthew Adams as he describes how you can build (or re-build) a solid personal credit foundation in just 90 days for less than $500, qualify for new credit without hard inquiries, and manipulate your credit profile for higher scores and limits with just your current spending. He’s raised his own credit score over 100 points in the last 180 days; learn how you can do the same.

Early Meeting:
Creative financing primer

Maybe you can’t go to the bank to get financing to buy properties. Maybe you don’t want to go to the bank to get financing to buy properties. That doesn’t mean you can’t buy properties; most real estate investors actually prefer seller financing and private financing because they’re easier and often cheaper than institutional loans. But how do they work, and which are best for which deals? Attend this meeting and learn the basics of owner-held mortgages, buying “subject to” and private and hard money, including what documents you’ll need to make them work.
