star of a&e's hit tv show "flip this
house," one of the most successful real-estate investors in the country and america's number-one real-estate-investing expert has one heck of an opportunity for you. than is hosting a one-of-a-kind free two-hour real-estate wealth-building workshop where you will learn his three-step system for getting started flipping homes and buying and holding income properties. than and his team are currently looking for a small group of motivated individuals who want to work directly with his team and learn the exact step-by-step system he's used to flip hundreds of properties over the past decade. at this event, you will learn exactly how you can do this without needing money, credit, or any prior experience. so if you've always had the desire to get into real estate or you're already in real estate, this event is the perfect opportunity for you to learn than's system. than's system has created thousands of success stories around the country and helped numerous people make money and change their financial futures forever.
attended one of than merrill's training events. since then, i've sold two properties, i have six houses under construction, and i have three houses under contract. in fact, the house behind me i just sold and made $38,000. i'm providing a better life for my daughter, and i'm absolutely loving life. now i'd like to introduce you to the man who changed my life, my mentor and friend, than merrill. >> if you're looking to increase your income, become less dependent on a job, spend more time with your friends and family, and ultimately have more fun and freedom in your life, then stick with me, because i'm gonna show you how you can have all of those things and more by learning my proven three-step system for investing in real estate. i'm than merrill, star of a&e's hit tv show "flip this house." over the past 10 years, i've become a self-made multi-millionaire buying and selling hundreds of properties just like the one behind me that are probably right in your neighborhood.
i'll also gonna show you properties i've made money on in the past few months and take you to properties that i'm currently flipping right now, like this one. and i'm gonna show you how different your life could be using my system to invest in real estate. real estate has completely changed my life, and for the past few years, i've been able to share that passion through our live training events, and nothing has been more rewarding to me. these events have helped thousands of regular, everyday people get started investing in real estate the right way, which has ultimately and dramatically changed theilives. >> i wasn't sure if we could do this on a part-time basis, because we both work full-time, but after completing the training, we've closed six deals, and we are loving life. >> now, you might be sitting there thinking, "than, why real estate, and why right now?" well, what's currently going on in this country is really scary. the middle class is literally
i'm talking about people, maybe like you, who earn between $40,000 to $200,000 a year, who are losing ground. here's what's happening. over the last decade, middle-class families have lost 1/3 of their net worth because wages are falling and inflation is rising. you know, the old idea that if you work hard and you pay your dues that you'll get ahead might be giving you false hope, and sadly, for the first time in history, a lot of people are not gonna be better off than their parents. you see, the reality is if you're relying on someone else -- the government or a job -- you might be putting yourself and your family at risk. and it only takes something as common as a job loss or a divorce or an unexpected family health problem, and you could go from a normal, middle-class family to newly poor practically overnight. realize this could happen to you, and that's why it's so important for you to get a financial education and take the proper steps to take care of
and the best way to do this is through real-estate investing. statistics show that real-estate investing is the most likely way to achieve financial independence, and more average, everyday people have become millionaires through real-estate investing than anything else. in fact, the irs reported that over the past 50 years, of all the americans who declared more than $1 million on their income tax returns, 71% of them were in real estate. you see, in high school and college, they teach us how to get a job, but at my live events, i take pride in teaching you how not to be dependent on a job and how to take control of your own destiny. >> before going to than's event, i was living paycheck to paycheck. in fact, on my first deal using than's system, i had nothing in my savings at that point. on that deal, i made over $40,000.
