  • The Mail Order, Telemarketing & Internet Money-Making Method A John Beck Amazing Profits Real Estate System
    • This presentation provides a step-by-step, A to Z, explanation of how to implement a very specific John Beck Free and Clear Money-Making Method that can be used anywhere in the United States or Canada, using as examples actual transactions done by John Beck and his youngest daughter Laura.
    John Beck’s Mail Order, Telemarketing and Internet Success Summit Program
    • This Free and Clear Money-Making Real Estate Investing Program involves Flipping Tax-Delinquent Real Estate for Fabulous Profits and can be done:
      • Entirely at Home
      • During Your Spare Time
      • Using Very Little Cash!
    A John Beck Free and Clear Money-Making Program
    • This is basically a two step program:
    • Step 1: Buy a parcel of real estate substantially under its current market value and
    • Step 2: Immediately resell (or flip) that parcel at its current market value for a profit.
    • And then continue doing this over and over again!
    What is this very specific Free and Clear Money-Making Program?
    • The real estate you buy must meet the following two requirements:
    • 1. The real estate must be so inexpensive that real estate agents won’t sell it , and
    • 2. It must be tax-delinquent .
    What kind of real estate do you need to buy to make this specific program work?
    • Real estate that is so inexpensive that real estate agents won’t sell it is undeveloped land and generally consists of the following kinds of land:
    • City lots,
    • Paper subdivision lots (i.e., lots that have been subdivided but have few, if any, improvements showing on the ground),
    • Retirement or recreational subdivision lots where the subdivision has substantial amenities in place, and
    • Miscellaneous rural lots and acreage.
    What kind of real estate do you need to buy to make this specific program work?
    • Real estate agents aren’t paid a salary; they’re paid a commission.
    • Generally for undeveloped land, the commission is 10% of the sales price of the land.
    • Consequently the commission for a parcel of land selling for $2,000.00 would be $200.00.
    … so inexpensive that real estate agents won’t sell it. What does this mean?
    • Real estate agents sell properties through multiple listing services (MLS). When a property is sold through MLS, the agent who obtains a listing from a seller (the listing agent) agrees to divide the commission received on the sale of the property with the agent who obtains the buyer (the cooperating agent).
    • The division (or split) of a commission between the listing agent and the cooperating agent is usually 50%-50%.
    • Consequently, if the parcel of land sells for $2,000.00, the listing agent would get $100.00 and the cooperating agent would get $100.00.
    … so inexpensive that real estate agents won’t sell it. What does this mean?
    • If either the listing agent or the cooperating agent work for a real estate broker, then that agent will have to split the $100.00 received with the broker. For new agents, that split might also be 50%-50%, leaving the agent and his or her broker with just $50.00 each.
    • As can readily be seen, the commissions paid on inexpensive undeveloped land are not sufficient to induce real estate agents to attempt to sell this type of real estate .
    … so inexpensive that real estate agents won’t sell it. What does this mean?
    • Since the commissions paid on inexpensive undeveloped land are not sufficient to induce real estate agents to attempt to sell the land, historically owners had to sell these properties themselves.
    • A large percentage of these owners found this to be too difficult, too time consuming and/or too expensive to do. Consequently, a high percentage of these owners abandoned their land.
    … so inexpensive that real estate agents won’t sell it. What does this mean?
    • The abandoning property owners stopped paying the real property taxes due on their land.
    • When this is done, the land becomes tax-delinquent .
    • And eventually the land goes through a real property tax lien foreclosure process, with the owners losing ownership of it.
    The inexpensive, undeveloped land must be tax-delinquent. What does that mean?
    • What these owners don’t know is that with the advent of Internet auction sites like eBay.com and Bid4Assets.com, today inexpensive, undeveloped land has become the easiest , the fastest and least expensive kind of real estate to sell.
    The secret that owners of inexpensive tax-delinquent real estate don’t know…
  • What is this very specific Free and Clear Money-Making Program?
    • This Program is basically a two step program:
    • Step 1: Buy a parcel of inexpensive undeveloped land that is tax-delinquent from an owner substantially under its current Internet resale value, and
    • Step 2: Immediately resell (or flip) that land at its current Internet resale value for a profit on the Internet using auction sites like eBay.com or Bid4Assets.com.
    • And then continue doing this over and over again.
  • What is this very specific Free and Clear Money-Making Program?
    • This Free and Clear investing program involves buying inexpensive undeveloped land that is tax-delinquent by contacting the owner using:
    • 1. Mail Order Marketing and/or
    • 2. Telemarketing
    • and then reselling that land using
    • 3. Internet Marketing
    • Trying to do as much of the required research as possible on the Internet.
  • A Step-by-Step Free and Clear Program
    • Step 1: Buy a parcel of inexpensive undeveloped land that is tax-delinquent substantially under its current Internet resale value.
    • To accomplish this, you need to do the following:
    • Step 1.1: Obtain a list of parcels of inexpensive undeveloped land that are tax delinquent.
    • Step 1.2: Determine the current Internet resale value of the parcels on the list.
    • Step 1.3: Buy the properties off the list for substantially less than their internet resale value.
  • Step 1.1: Obtain a list of parcels of inexpensive undeveloped land that are tax-delinquent.
    • Who do you contact to get these lists?
    • You can get these lists by contacting the local government office responsible for collecting delinquent real property taxes .
    • How do you identify this office?
    • The identity of the office can differ from state to state.
    • Typically this office is a County (or in the case of Alaska, Borough or in the case of Louisiana, Parish) government office and, generally, the office is called the County Treasurer or Tax Collector’s office. However, the office may have a very different name (e.g., Revenue Commissioner, Sheriff, Tax Claim Bureau, Tax Commissioner, Trustee, etc.)
  • Step 1.1: Obtain a list of parcels of inexpensive undeveloped land that are tax-delinquent. Who do you contact to get these lists?
    • In states such as Alabama and Arkansas , the office responsible for collecting delinquent real property taxes is a state government office.
    • In states such as Connecticut , Massachusetts , New Hampshire , New Jersey , Rhode Island and Vermont , the office responsible for collecting delinquent real property taxes is a municipal (e.g., a city, town, etc.) government office and that office is almost always the municipal Tax Collector, but it may be found under a different name such as Tax Receiver, Treasurer, etc.)
    • In states such as Alaska , New York , North Carolina , Texas and Virginia , the office responsible for collecting delinquent real property taxes can be found at both the County (or Borough in the case of Alaska) and the Municipal levels of local government. Or, as is the case with Texas, at the Local Taxing Entity or Unit level (e.g., Independent School District, Water District, etc.)
  • Step 1.1: Obtain a list of parcels of inexpensive undeveloped land that are tax-delinquent. Who do you contact to get these lists?
    • In states such as Illinois, Kentucky , Massachusetts , Mississippi , New York , Pennsylvania and South Carolina , the office that collects current real property taxes may differ from the office that collects delinquent real property taxes.
    • For instance, in Illinois the County Treasurer collects current taxes but after the annual tax certificate sale, the County Clerk assumes responsibility for collecting delinquent taxes.
    • In Kentucky the County Sheriff collects current taxes but after issuance of Certificates of Delinquency, the County Clerk assumes responsibility for collecting delinquent taxes.
    • In Massachusetts the municipal (City or Town) Tax Collector collects current taxes but after default and taking of Tax Title, the municipal Treasurer assumes responsibility for collecting delinquent taxes.
  • Step 1.1: Obtain a list of parcels of inexpensive undeveloped land that are tax-delinquent. Who do you contact to get these lists?
    • In Mississippi , the County Tax Collector collects current taxes while the County Chancery Clerk collects delinquent taxes.
    • In New York it is common for the municipal (i.e., City, Town, Village or School District) Tax Receiver/Collector to collect current taxes and the County Treasurer or Commissioner of Finance to collect delinquent taxes.
    • In 65 of Pennsylvania ’s 67 counties, current taxes are collected by the County Treasurer and delinquent taxes are collected by the County Tax Claim Bureau.
    • And typically in South Carolina , current taxes are collected by the County Treasurer and delinquent taxes by the County Delinquent Tax Collector.

      • Alabama : Delinquent Taxes (cont):
    • If the state has held a Certificate of Sale less than three years from the date of sale by the county tax collection official, the Certificate will be assigned to the purchaser. If the property is not redeemed by the three year anniversary of the sale to the State, the Certificate holder can surrender the original assigned Certificate to the county redemption official and receive a tax deed upon payment of a nominal issuance fee.
    • If the State has held a Certificate of Sale more than three years from the date of sale by the county tax collection official, a tax deed will be issued to the purchaser by the State. Tax deeds are given without warranty or covenant of any type; it is the purchaser's responsibility to determine what, if any, interest in the property is actually being purchased. No refunds are made unless the State had no interest to sell, and then only within two years from the purchase date.
  • A state-by-state list of contact information: Tax Collectors .
      • Alaska : Current and delinquent taxes: 12 Borough Finance, Financial Services or Tax Departments and 26 Municipal Clerk or Clerk-Treasurers:
      • Alaska is the only state in the United States where a large portion of its land mass is not subject to a property tax. Alaska's Constitution requires that the entire state be divided into boroughs, organized or unorganized.
      • In Alaska, there are sixteen “organized” boroughs and one “unorganized” borough. Twelve of the sixteen organized boroughs levy a property tax. Additionally, thirteen cities within these organized boroughs also levy a property tax.
      • That portion of the state that is not incorporated into an organized borough is designated the ”Unorganized Borough,” an area larger than any US state other than Alaska. The “unorganized” borough does not levy a property tax; however, thirteen cities within the unorganized borough levy property taxes. As a result, a total of 26 cities out of 145 Alaskan cities levy a property tax.
