Challenge (Additional Articles)

The original post that spawned Bill's response:

Is there anybody in the area that would be willing to help me out?? I am just having so much bad luck hit me lately that I don't know where else to go. If there is anybody that would like to see if they can help me change my life, please let me know. Thank you very much for reading this.

---John

 

And Bill's response:

John,

If you truly mean what you said… I'll be willing to help you. However, IF you consider any of the following too corny, too trite, too difficult, too much trouble, unreasonable, or beneath you...the deal is instantly off.

If you ever say to me that you would have, but you ran out of time; it was too late; you forget; or that you ALMOST made the quota for the day...the deal's off.

My promise and guaranty? If you do 100% of what I ask (without fail): within 90 days, your net worth will have increased by no less than $100,000.00.

14 things you MUST do (if you honestly mean what you said in your post) missing one single factor mentioned here as of October 1, 2000 cancels and nullifies our deal:

1. Put an ad in the newspaper than says: “I buy Houses, twnhses and condos. Any condition. Cash or terms. Fast close. Call John XXX XXX XXXX”

2. Buy two magnetic signs for each side of your car that say the same thing as above.

3. Print flyers that say the same thing and put them on windshields in Car Pooling pickup points.

4. Order business cards at once and print the same verbiage on the back of your business card.

5. Go to the County Court House once every two weeks and transcribe a list of all N.O.D's filed within the past 60 days.


6. Send five post cards to each person on your list First Post card says:

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Xxxx,
If I can help, please call me. I buy homes for CASH or on TERMS. I even buy ugly, vacant or run-down houses townhouses and condos. Foreclosure, no equity, upside down (negative equity), creditor or tax lines - No Problem!
My name is John Xxxxx.
Please call my private line at your first convenience XXX XXX XXXX. All calls kept confidential."

One week later send a 2nd post card to all the same people, which reads:

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Xxxx,
If I can help, please call me. I wrote you last week, and hope all is going well. As you will recall, I buy homes for CASH or on TERMS. I even buy ugly, vacant or run-down houses townhouses and condominiums. Foreclosure, no equity, upside down (negative equity), creditor or tax lines - No Problem!
My name is John Xxxxx.
Please call my private line at your first convenience XXX XXX XXXX. All calls kept confidential."

Third week's card:

"Dear Mr. and Mrs. Xxxx,
This is my third try to contact you. Please know that if I can help with your mortgage situation in any way, I am here. please call me. Remember...I buy homes for CASH or on TERMS. I want vacant, ugly or run-down houses townhouses and condos. Foreclosure? No equity? upside down (negative equity)? creditor or tax lines? -None of these are a problem!
My name is John Xxxxx.
Please call my private line at your first convenience XXX XXX XXXX. All calls kept confidential."

Fourth week: This week you send a letter typed in unjustified Courier font, with a hand written address and your return address on the envelope. Mark it “Confidential.”

"Dear Mr. and Mrs. Xxxx, As you know, I have attempted to contact you by mail on a few occasions. Please understand that as your foreclosure date draws nearer, you may be in a much better position with regard to you home than you think. I am still most interested in bringing your loan current, saving your credit and purchasing the property at its full value. If you wish, we can leave the loan in your name so that my series of prompt payments can restore your good credit. Please do understand that I truly can help with your situation. I am here if you need my assistance. I await your call. Remember... Full value, CASH or on TERMS. The condition of the property or the loan, or potential liens upon the property are not of concern to me.
Sincerely, John Xxxxx
My private line is XXX XXX XXXX. All calls confidential

Final letter.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Xxxx,
Forgive my final intrusion. This is my last attempt to contact you. I just want you to know that all of my previous correspondence regarding your possible plight (re. your home) has been from the heart and in the interest of assisting if I can. As you know, as your foreclosure date draws nearer, if your property has not sold or your loan been brought current, your options may be seem more limited than they actually are.. If this seems to be the case, please call at once. I CAN help.. Once again... Full value, CASH or on TERMS. The condition of the property or the loan, or potential liens upon the property are not of concern to me. As always, John Xxxxx
Private line XXX XXX XXXX. All calls confidential

(When you get one, make the appointment to meet with him/her and call me…don’t call me until you do).

7. Type the following in the center of two 3 x 5 card in 14 point type. Tape one in the corner of your bathroom mirror, and the other on the dashboard of your car (right in the center of your speedometer panel). Then, every day until they are old and brown and tattered, you read them aloud at least once, and try to find one more layer of meaning in these words:

I AM IN TOTAL HARMONY WITH THE LIMITLESS ABUNDANCE THAT IS LIFE, AND WILL ,THEREFORE, CAN ONLY PROSPER IN SPECTACULAR WAYS…ALWAYS

8. Make certain that you always carry a money clip with at least one $100 bill showing (wrapping the others). And be certain that no matter what happens that bill is NEVER spent for any reason what-so-ever, unless it is instantly replaced with another one hundred dollar bill. No cheating. No panicky spending…always be prepared to use the other bills no matter what.

9. Call landlords in your newspaper (no less than 5 calls per day…every day and 10 on Saturday and 10 on Sunday), saying: “I ‘m calling about your for rent ad. I’m looking for folks with properties like that who might consider my paying a little more rent than you’re asking, in exchange for the right to buy the property in a few years. If I can get some tax write-off along the way, I’ll also handle 100% of all maintenance, repairs, upkeep, property tax and insurance. (When you get one, make the appointment to meet with him and call me…don’t call me until you do).”

10. Call at least 10 FSBO’s per week and say: Hi, I’m calling about your ad. I’m hoping to find someone selling on their own, who would be willing to sell for a bit more than the asking price, if I could come in and take over all payments and expenses, and take, say, a year or so to get my credit and down payment monies together. (When you get one, make the appointment to meet with him and call me…don’t call me until you do).

11. Read everything on this website and read the discussion groups at CREonline.com and Realestatelink.net daily.

12. Call into our Free Telementoring session every first and third Wednesday at 6:30 PM (PST) 10. After thirty days (only then) you can call me, or Jim or Gail or Steve on our mentoring line for free. (Oh…that’s only about a $2,000 value…that you’ll lose if you don’t do 100% of the above). See, your life is already changing…you made 2,000 bucks (actually, we only charge $700 for mentoring).

13. Write your financial goals on an 8.5” X 11” Sheet of paper in ink in your own handwriting….make a rough draft and then go back and make your final copy (in your own handwriting). Place your goal sheet in the center drawer of your desk in a position that causes you to have to move it each time you open the drawer, in order to get to other items in your desk.

I will after I research it
I’m not as…

Hootchy-Cootchy Mamma

Things you MUST say everyday, when asked (no matter what you perceive the situation to be):

I am great!
Life is great!
I feel just super!
Finances are great!
You bet, I’m happy!
Business is good, and getting better every minute!
If I got any happier, I’d split open and a bean would pop out!
Everything good that comes my way, comes because I truly deserve it!
Everything ‘bad’ that seems to befall me, is temporary, and God’s gift of an opportunity to get to know myself!

OK JOHN. Are you ready? Let’s go! Remember, until your thirty days are up, all correspondence with me (us) must take place on this discussion group only (until/unless you have a real prospect on the hook…then call me at 1 800 207 4273, and I’ll set up the conference call with your prospect and you).

Best of good fortune,

Bill
