Than Merrill's Fortune Builder University ReviewSo Than Merrill’s “Fortune Builders University” (formerly known as “Wholesaling University) has officially opened its doors.

Posturing itself as, “…a systematic, classroom-style approach to continuing education in today’s wholesaling and real estate investing arena.” it makes some pretty bold promises. 

Fortune Builders University: But will it really deliver?

I must say I’ve been intrigued by “Fortune Builders University” since it first hit my radar.

(And yes, it’s true – I was recently asked (and agreed) to contribute by teaching a module myself.)

But more importantly, I know some of my friends and colleagues here will be considering how these classes might be a fit for you, and whether you should invest your hard-earned education dollars in it.

Consider This Before You Buy…

Here’s a few things you should find helpful in your due diligence, including a private interview I had with Than just recently, in which we boil Fortune Builders U. down to its very essence for you.

If you’ve been around REI Tips for a while, you know how much I love unscripted interviews.  And Sunday night I got on Than on the horn and threw an array of questions at him, including:

  • Who are you, and what’s your REI business really like today?
  • What exactly is Fortune Builders University / Wholesaling University?
  • How did you come up with the idea?
  • With no shortage of REI education available, what sets this apart and makes it unique?
  • What will the training sessions really be like?
  • How much does it cost?
  • Is this a replacement or a supplement to a good wholesaling home study course?
  • Will there be any other discounts offered on your other products?

I think you’ll find this interview very helpful in processing how Fortune Builders University might fit into your continuing education as an investor.

Than Merrill ReviewIn addition to candidly answering all the questions above, Than unexpectedly threw in a few practical, real-life tips into the mix of our chat.  I may post them separately in the future (as REI Tips) but for now you’d do well to take a couple of notes when you listen, and learn about…

  • A window of opportunity for “Bulk REOs” today
  • The biggest resource for new leads in their business today
  • How to sell a house fast with a zip code / demographic list from Experian (a golden tip here)
  • Specifically how his biz has changed in the last year to compensate for today’s market?
  • His top 2 strategies for finding hot investor-buyers quickly (another hot one)

So I definitely recommend listening to our chat before you make a buying decision.

Short and sweet-like…

  • Our recording above was made before they opened FBU.
  • It’s now open and I’m happy to report you can test-drive the whole shebang with a risk-free trial first (a nice touch)
  • You’ll find a good bit of content already pre-loaded inside right from the start.
  • Content is specialized, and designed to be consumable at your own pace, digestible and practical.

In my final assessment, I for one am looking very much forward to seeing this new resource in action. And holding Than’s feet to the fire to make sure he delivers the value he’s promising. 🙂

If this resonates with you, then jump in and give Fortune Builders University a risk-free “test drive” here…

And as always, your comments are welcome.
