Beck also promises viewers lists of the available tax foreclosure properties in their area.

How it works: According to Mr. Beck, the homes referenced in the infomercial came from special government-backed tax sale foreclosure programs that the average person isn’t aware of. The homes are purchased through a special program known as government tax lien foreclosure process, where homes which had delinquent property taxes on them were seized. Since cities and towns depend on tax money they created foreclosure programs. Mr. Beck states in the infomercial that the government’s right to collect property tax almost always comes before the banks’ rights for mortgages or loan collection. This gives the towns and cities the right to auction off properties free and clear of any previous money owed on the properties to anyone willing to come in and pay off the back taxes.

Typical cost: The infomercial cites a cost of $39.95 plus shipping and handling with a money back guarantee. The infomercial guarantees you’ll find your first property in less than 30 days. The infomercial also states the first 250 people to call and order receive a free membership into John Beck’s Property Vault. Order number: 1-800-936-9902 / Official site: johnbeck.net

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

Want to make a lot of money from the real estate market? Foreclosure Profits is a current TV infomercial that promises you just that, if you buy into its methods. Real estate millionaire Dean Graziosi is the man behind the product and helps people make money in real estate by capitalizing on market cycles. Dean Graziosi has previously been associated with as seen on TV advertisements for “Motor Millions” and “Think a Little Different”, both products to help epople profit from real estate. In one of his most recent Foreclosure Profits infomercials, Dean accentuates the fact that our economy is in a trying time as of late 2008, with uncertainty over who the new president will be and what they’ll do for our economy. Dean promises people a way to turn their financial situation around, no matter how bad their situation may be. His product teaches people how to buy Real Estate appropriately during the market cycles to make serious money and improve their overall financial situations. As with most infomercials claiming to help you get rich, many people wonder if Dean Graziosi’s full of scams or smart plans to help you financially succeed.

Dean’s books and courses teach strategies that he claims will help people make a fortune from today’s already down real estate market. Dean claims that various people have read the book and applied the concepts in it to make serious money and improve their financial situation. In the infomercial, various home video footage sent in by “actual people” shows people who have used the methods Dean suggests. The actual people claim they’ve made tens of thousands of dollars using Dean’s strategies and tips, with no money down and no bank loans whatsoever.

Creator: Dean Graziosi is a real estate expert, bestselling author and investor. He may be a prime example of a rags to riches story, as he grew up wearing second hand clothes, and his mother worked two jobs just to earn $90 a week. He lived in a trailer home and didn’t complete high school back then. Dean became motivated from there on out to better his situation. His book Be a Real Estate Millionaire talks of how Dean achieved financial freedom through making some great real estate investments. As a teenager he bought a run down apartment building with no money down, fixed it up and sold at a profit. Now Dean has been teaching novice real estate investors for over 20 years how to make these financially savvy real estate purchases. Dean’s book “Be a Real Estate Millionaire” become one of the hottest real estate books on the market and a New York Times bestseller.

How it works: Dean’s system teaches you step by step strategies on how to find real estate losers and make them into winners. It claims to give strategies to buy properties cheaper than anywhere else, to buy the home and then rent out the property for positive cash flow. The “Profit from Real Estate Right Now” book reveals Dean’s strategies and loopholes that people can use to buy foreclosed properties for pennies on the dollar during down real estate markets, then turn them into rental properties for positive cash flow. In the infomercial, Dean has claimed that we’re near the bottom of the real estate market and stand to make a good deal of money from it in the future. Ironically, Dean mentions in his infomercial that he saw an ad for “Houses for $300” and that just isn’t realistic. It’s unknown whether Dean’s strategies and methods truly work or if these are Dean Graziosi scams.

What’s included:
“Profit from Real Estate Right Now” is Dean’s brand new book about how to profit from the current down markets. On the infomercial it sells for $19.95 plus shipping and handling. He’s also giving away his previous book Be a Real Estate Millionaire for free with it. Dean also includes “Special report: Student Secrets”, a report about how his students got themselves out of debt.

Fine print: “Some students may have purchased optional support program. Results not typical”. Also note, we have not tested these products and can’t say whether this system truly works, or if Dean Graziosi’s products are scams.
