Course Description

REO investing has become a popular real estate investing strategy since the start of the financial crises in 2008.

What is an REO property? An REO property is an asset that has gone through the foreclosure process and is currently owned by the bank.

The Opportunity:
Banks want real estate investors to take REO properties off their hands immediately! You have to understand that bank are NOT in the business of being landlords. They are often motivated to unload these non-performing assets of their balance sheets. This give YOU, as the investor, an opportunity to buy these assets well below market value.

This course will give you the step-by-step blueprint that both small, private investors, and large institutional investors, use to profit from REO properties. Even if you are new to real estate investing, this course will give you the details and action steps you need to start your REO investing career.

The course consists of easy-to-follow training videos taught by Peter Kasyanenko, a seasoned REO investor from New York City. Peter spent years working for a private equity firm that focused on buying REOs, Bulk REOs, and Non-performing Loan portfolios. Peter shares his experience and offers practical advice to help you move up the learning curve as quickly as possible and start earning income as an REO investor.

Instructor Biography

RealEstate U, Honest and Practical Real Estate Investing Courses

RealEstateU is an online real estate school that offers honest, practical, and actionable real estate investing and salespersons courses.

RealEstateU was founded by Andrew Anic, an NYU Grad student, and Ciprian Morariu in 2013. Both Andrew and Ciprian were aspiring real estate investors and developers in NYC, but continuously saw a lack of quality real estate education on the market. Graduate school was too theoretical, while the real estate 'gurus' were selling courses for thousands of dollars that lacked any real depth.

So, Andrew and Ciprian set out to find experienced and successful real estate investors, who are on the front lines buying properties on a daily basis, and had them teach what they know.

The result?
A series of detailed courses that offer the blueprints RealEstateU instructors use to profit as real estate investors.

The courses consist of easy-to-follow training videos that break down the steps taken to find, fund, and close deals.

After taking a RealEstateU course, you will have the fundamental knowledge you need to set out on your own.
