Purchasing tax lien instruments from city, county, and municipal governments can provide you with very high and secure rates of return, in some cases as high as 12%, 18%, 24%, or even 1,000% or more per year. If performed correctly, investments in tax lien instruments will far outpace stock market performance, even traditional real estate investments. The key is to know how to perform this process correctly. Tax lien certificates and deeds are not purchased through a broker; you purchase these property tax liens directly from the state or county government (depending on the state). This type of investment was created by state law, and state law protects you as the investor. Investing in tax liens and deeds can be very rewarding. Tax liens can be tax deferred or even tax-free.

You are about to learn the true secret of real estate investing real estate options. WHO really makes money in Real Estate? Realtors, sellers, appraisers, the bank, brokers, mortgage brokers, closing companies, attorneys, taxing authorities, and lastly perhaps you the investor who takes all the risk and does all the work, while having to evict tenants and clean up their mess after theyâe(tm)ve left. But there is a new, unique and innovative method of investing in real estate.

A Real Estate Option gives you control of a piece of real estate without actually purchasing it. By having an option on a piece of property, you have the exclusive right to buy that property or not. A real estate option is simply a contract between the seller and buyer giving you the legal right not obligation to buy the property at a set price for a predetermined time. When you find a buyer for the property, you cash in your option and deposit a large check.

Most real estate investment methods require you to sink a lot of your money, time, and effort into your investments. And it is a slow process, usually one property at a time, often part-time. Using an option instead of purchasing means you do not have to deal with rental property, tenants, maintenance and repairs, taxes, mortgage payments, commissions, or closing costs.

In this new book you will learn how to control a vast real estate portfolio without ever buying the property. Let the owner keep paying the mortgage, dealing with tenants and all of the costs. You zero in on the profits. Here is an example, you locate a duplex worth $400,000, you purchase an option to buy it for $340,000 anytime within the next 120 days. On Day 60, you find a buyer who will pay the full $400,000., you activate the option, pay the seller $340,000, and pocket $60,000. This is a simplified example, but this new book details how to become a highly successful real estate option buyer, and it demonstrates step-by-step how to get started in this highly rewarding investment strategy.

Allow me to share my story with you.
My name is Cory Boatright. I am 35 years old and since my early twenties I have started, run, or been directly involved with almost 40 different companies.
I have sold everything from Ginsu knives on eBay, Kirby vacuum cleaners door-to-door, all the way to $50,000 high-end electronics Online.
Out of the forty-something companies only TWO of them ever proved to be worthwhile endeavors. The other thirty-eight I decided to call "business therapy."
Interestingly enough, both of the successful companies harnessed the power of the Internet to make their profits. After bringing in almost 4 million dollars in sales from my first start-up. I sold it and directed my passion to the world of real estate investing.
Why real estate?
Well, most of my affluent customers in my first business owned real estate so I knew there was something to be learned in that industry. I was a complete novice to it And...oh...by the way before I forget...did I mention that I didn't even graduate from high school? Apparently my drive to succeed coupled with my persistence to not fail clouded my judgment of the value of a formal education. So instead, I settled for a G.E.D.
I'm not looking for any pity-party. I just mentioned this to demonstrate that if a highschool dropout can make it, the doors are open for just about anyone else to do it too.
Now fast forward a bit into my real estate experiences. I started out being a "bird dog" which means I was out finding good deals on properties and getting paid a finders fee for it. That fee was usually $500 - $1,500. After I learned how much money the investor was making selling the houses I was bringing him, I quickly learned how to assign, wholesale and flip distressed properties.
That brought in checks anywhere from $3,000 - $10,000. Not bad, but I had a hunch those properties were worth a lot more after they were fixed up.
So I decided to put together a "skeleton" rehab crew and thought I would make $15,000 - $30,000 per deal, but I was sadly mistaken.
My rehab attempts ended up being more of a mirage instead of a real profit center. My $30,000 paydays actually came out to be more around $17,500 after considering all the contractor frustrations, material costs, labor, marketing, selling and other holding costs.
Needless to say I had more fun assigning contracts.
It wasn't until around 2004 that I stumbled my way through a short sale and I made over $30,000 on that deal!
That was the most money that I had ever made on one single real estate transaction.
I couldn't believe the lender would accept less than what was owed for a payoff.
I was immediately hooked and quickly learned everything possible about the short sale process. The more I learned about Short Sales, the more I was asked by other investors to partner on deals.
I quickly became known as the local "go-to" guy for doing short sales. Other investors continually asked me how they too could learn to do what I was doing. So after being asked by numerous fellow investors to teach and coach them on the subject, I decided to "dive in head first" and write my first information product/home study course.
What I discovered in real estate investing was something I never expected. Not only was the short sale niche secretive, but the entire industry. And the "real truth" was shared only amongst a small, tight knit group of investors, but not anymore.
I've cornered the "top dogs" in their niche of real estate investing and forced them to talk. When you finish reading "Real Estate Recession Riches" you are going to be smarter and wiser newbie or advanced real estate investor. Period.
Remember... be a servant,

"The story of this storm in the global markets is the story of how government intervention to solve previous crises laid the foundation for a new one," writes Johan Norberg in his important new book. Tracing the causes of our current financial crisis with liveliness and clarity, Financial Fiasco shows the mistakes made in Washington, on Wall Street, and in communities across America that led to the economic meltdown. While many analysts have placed the blame solely on Wall Street, Norberg exposes the crucial role government regulation played in creating the opportunities and incentives that led to the financial collapse.
In six concise chapters, Financial Fiasco tells the complex story of the crisis, showing how monetary policy, housing policy, and financial innovations combined to create financial catastrophe. The final two chapters describe the government's mismanagement of the crisis and how we are now dangerously repeating many of the very same mistakes that caused it. An understanding of the roots of the financial crisis is crucial for every American who has felt its effects - and would like to prevent the same disaster from happening again. Financial Fiasco provides that understanding, with great insight, clarity, and wit.
Just as important, the book serves as a profound warning against pursuing the wrong solutions. "After government authorities had helped create the worst financial crisis in generations, the climate of ideas has now shifted dramatically in the direction of bigger and more active government," Norberg writes. Financial Fiasco is the perfect antidote to those ideas, a cautionary tale on how to stop confusing the disease with the cure.
WHAT THIS BOOK IS ABOUT AND WHY IT IS IMPORTANT

This is the book the Banksters DO NOT want you to read!

G. Malcolm Doney, Author

The title of this Book conveys a great deal of what this subject is about.  It is the Bankster Busters’ Bible and carries the sub-title How to Fight the Banks and Win, which was the title of the first on-line publication by this author in 2009.

 So what exactly is a Bankster?  Well it sounds a lot like Gangster and the icon on the book’s cover is meant to convey that meaning. This title was bestowed upon the Banking industry during The Great Depression following the 1929 Stock Market Crash and in the opinion of the author no title was more justly deserved.  Since those terrible days deliberately orchestrated by Banksters, those interrelated industries that control our entire financial system have become even more skilled at the manipulation of the apparent value of fiat money and real assets to its advantage, all behind a mask of respectability, but to the considerable disadvantage of the American people and the rest of the world’s population.

In 1914 the Banking industry pulled its biggest confidence trick ever when it persuaded the American Congress and its then President to create the Federal Reserve – a private bank – and to delegate to the owners and controllers of that private bank the power to create and control the country’s legal tender – the US Dollar.

Once that scam was securely established as part of the system and the people got used to it, the powers of the Feds as they became known, were stealthily increased until most citizens in the United States, now mistakenly believe that it is a government department whose function is to control the economy by ironing out the excess highs and lows of natural market forces.  The truth is that it actually deliberately creates those excesses in order to subject Americans to the cruelest tax of all time, that of the hidden costs of the manipulation of the Dollar and other world currencies.  Examples of how this has worked to the disadvantage of Americans are the many stock market debacles and the manipulation of foreign currencies to force devaluations.
