I am looking to get in to the L/O program. I have been reading postings on this site for 2 days now (total of 15 hours). I don’t want to spend a lot of my own money up front to learn. I have seen the information offered here and am wondering of Joe Kaiser’s “The Ultimate Lease Option Strategy” Version #2 is going to get me started. I was originally going to get Carleton Sheets program and still will (using money invested), but want to know if Joe Kaiser’s program will get me going and if you all reccommend it.

I noticed you are in Florida.
Where are you located in our lovely state?
As you can see by my posting name, I am here as well.

anyway, as far as courses to get, CS is a good “primer”, meaning that it should do at least two things for you.

  1. Give you a decent understanding of many of the basic terms in this business.
  2. Make you hungry for more.

Frankly, if you want to get into investing and learn how to do deals faster, CS course is not the one I’d get.
As for Kaisers, I’ve not seen the second edition of his course, but did get the first one.
I liked it, and did make some money using it, but, I already had a good handle on how to do L/O’s.

To me, Kaisers course offered some new ideas for getting sellers to call me.
The forms he included I did not like too much, and it seemed to lack good explanations for the beginning investor.
This is of course just my opinion.

Take a look all over online for some good courses, and then goto some of the various newsgroups, chat groups, and bulletin boards online and ask about them.

There are several good ones out there, for all type of investing.
Just keep in mind that not one course will offer you everything you need. Education is on going in this business for every method, technique or strategy.
There are some courses that will offer you a good step by step plan and material for making money investing.
And of course, after you make some money, spend some of it to continue your education.
I personally have an entire clost filled with various courses and books, and even though I od this full time, and feel that I have a good handle on investing many different ways, I still read on occassion and try to learn new things, or develop my own new things.

Id get Kaisers over CS. You can easily learn what CS teaches from this site. I got the CS course, and to tell you the truth I havent even completed it. I get more info faster on this site. I’ve heard Kaisers courses are good. One day I’ll get his “How to totally dominate your foreclosure market.” Check out Bronchick’s L/O course as well. I think I’ll be getting that one. He run’s the Law & Taxes board. Smart man!

What part of FL are you in?

P.S. If you don’t really encourage me to get either of those to start out with, is there a program you DO think is good for beginners?
