Yes, Ca$h breaks the process of buying properties subject to down to small, manageable, and understandable steps. However, if at any time, you are confused, don’t understand, or just want to clarify, you also get access to John Locke’s private subto website, and, as colvegas said, John himself, both here and via his personal cell phone number. I can’t think of another course writer, teacher or “guru” that does that.
Will it actually help you to start making subject to deals? That all depends on you. It will supply you with all the information and enough practical knowledge to start using subject to investing to buy properties. No book or course will ever teach you “everything you need to know” because real estate investing is an evolving business. Things change. Unexpected problems arise. What a good book/course will do is direct you on what to do if something unexpected does happen and everything I’ve ever read from John does that. Hey, worst case, call John, right?
However, John’s course will NOT help you to start making subject to deals. As I said, it only supplies you with the knowledge. The only thing/person that can make you go out and do real estate deals is you. In this business (and any owner run business), you are the motivation. No one else is going to pat you on your back and say, “good job.” No one else is going to kick you in your butt and say “get to work.” (of course, my wife would disagree here as she frequently does that to me) If you can’t motivate yourself to do it, no one else, and especially no book or course is going to do it for you.
I hope you understand and good luck in your investing career.
Oh, and I agree with colvegas that you do not have to use land trusts in any real estate transaction, and that it is always good to have different creative ways of doing things, and even that you should “read up on it” with “it” being anything that you are interested in, whether that is landtrusts or butterflies. Hey, I also believe that you should base your decision on the facts. However, since landtrust.net sells courses promoting using landtrusts, I’d take any “facts” that you get from there with a grain of salt. True facts come from neutral sources.
And colvegas, for future reference, just because someone disagrees with you about using landtrusts doesn’t necessarily mean that they “do not understand the full use” of landtrusts. I’ll be happy to discuss the ins and outs of landtrusts and their uses with you until the cows come home. Hey, I can even show you how to cut 'em in half, fry 'em in butter, and make a tasty sandwich out of them, but it still won’t change my position that a beginning investor shouldn’t be using them.
