New Software Promises Ridiculously Awesome Systemization for REI Forms/Paperwork (Video)

{ I know which I'd choose! }If you get all giddy (like I do) over systems and tools that simplify life and make your work faster and easier, then you’re gonna love this.

A friend just forwarded me this video on, “How To Get Unbelievably Low Offers Accepted By Using Justification!”

I just finished watching it, and I must say I’m impressed.  OK, honestly it makes me feel all squishy inside.    🙂

Ridiculously Awesome Systemization?

That’s what’s at the core of this I think.

While the video walks through how to create a “Justified Offer Cheat Sheet” to quickly, persuasively make your case to a seller, it’s also a “sneak peek” demo of an as-yet unreleased piece of real estate investing software that promises to make quick, easy work out of the otherwise drudgery of creating and tediously organizing your REI paperwork.

As in, type in your stuff one time, and spit out whatever paperwork (or other output) your heart desires (and deal requires) in a quick snap.

Some tasty morsels I particularly like…

{ video opens in new window }From the video I’m particularly drawn to:

  • Works for a number of different REI transaction types
  • 1 click comps / 1 click mapping
  • Looks easy enough to outsource to a brain-dead assistant
  • Appears simple to use, but entirely customizable

In all fairness I haven’t test driven this software myself yet.  So a personal testimonial I am not.

But I’m really drawn to what I see in this video, so I’m making a point to explore this further with Gerald (the guy behind the software) in the near future.  And I’ll report back afterward.

For now, I definitely suggest checking out Gerald’s video “taste test” and see what you think for yourself.

As always, your comments are welcome.

    How much do you think it will cost? It looks pretty cool

    Great questions, Jay. And I honestly don’t know yet. But I’m betting that’ll be released shortly. I’ll report it when I find out.

    JP,

    As of today, I have unsubscribed from 4 different REI education ‘e-mailers’

    The way I see it, you are now my portal (or search engine if you will) for determining what’s hot and what’s not.

    It’s all in your hands now — Thanks and keep up the good work!

    Brooks, man, I wish I could adequately express how much what you just said means to me. I work hard to provide everyone here something that’s unique and of authentic value. And hearing an “attaboy” like yours shows me I’m doing something right.

    You guys (everyone who blesses me by visiting REItips.com) have no idea how much you mean to me. Even if we don’t know each other personally, I consider it an honor to serve as your authentic advocate in the REI arena.

    Thanks for taking the time to share your kind words, Brooks. Seriously, man.

    JP,
    I like your reviews. I’ve been “eye”ing Gerald’s system for over a year. My question is whether using “Zillow” as a source for comps is wise. It doesn’t reflect reality in my county. Better comps would make it more appealing. I wouldn’t make any offers based on faulty comps. I would gladly sell my home for the Zillow estimate… even much less.

    PS- Wish I had known who you were at the Pitchfree Seminar last spring. I was there too.

    Hi, Doug – you’re absolutely right. In fact I told Gerald that in the phone call I just had with him about this. I’d never use Zillow for reliable comps, and he completely agreed. But since Zillow has an API and some folks use it to get a “rough idea” at times (especially for virtual / long-distance REI) he incorporated it into the software.

    I was glad to hear he doesn’t condone using Zillow.com for REAL comps/values.

    I recorded our conversation and I’ll publish it to the blog here soon. I think you’ll find it pretty helpful.

    PS…Yeah, too bad we missed each other at “No Pitch”. I was there with Steve Cook. Next time…

    So…………………….How in the world do we get this? Seems pretty incredible but a bit of a tease without any information on access to it? I get the idea of marketing this way but I was HOT to get this, Tomorrow who knows!!

    Hi, Jim. I hear ya, man. I actually just wrapped up a private interview with Gerald about this. Apparently it’s due to come out Feb 5th.

    I’ll be posting my interview w/him here to the blog shortly. I think it’ll really help clear up details.

    I agree – it’s a great looking piece of software.

    Hey JP,
    I agree with Brooks, you are doing a stand-up job of no BS info for us investors. Not the usual, hurry and buy this now so I get my affiliate cut stuff that most of us are sick and tired of. Keep up the good work!

  • JP,
    What is a decent short sale software that is user friendly an inexpensive and gives you all the necessary tools to submit to the lender. I have researched a lot of them but unsure which would be the better to fit one’s need. GURU software whmmm! A fitting software to me is one that can be upgraded yearly. What’s your thought about a workable and efficient software for purposes of doing a short sale.

    George,

    Sorry for my late reply. I’m a little behind on stuff.

    Admittedly the number of short sales I do personally is limited. It’s not my focus, thought I’ve done a couple of them. But I forwarded your question to my buddy and short sale sherpa Cory Boatright. He says he recommends Gerald’s software. It would be great to not have the monthly licensing fee. But basically if you’re actually using it, the “what’s my time worth” and/or “what’s a replacement employee worth” questions make it a solid decision.

    It’s off market now anyway (as of the time I’m writing this). So it’s not an option for you at the moment. But maybe he’ll re-open them sometime soon. I don’t know.

    My best,
