Meet the ‘black sheep’ of property investment seminars!

The ultimate coalition of professional traders, renovators and investors bring you a Property Trading Workshop like no other! The last 6 events sold out and sold quickly, with amazing feedback and results! We are still keeping the same small limit even though it's online, as it is an interactive format where questions will be answered live and we want everyone to get maximum value!

"..So much knowledge and really well delivered. If you're thinking about attending an event I'd definitely recommend. Learnt so many gems that will save me far more than it cost to attend." Ami from Christchurch - Ami flew up to Auckland for Trading Places Feb 2020.

Trading property for profit can seem scary. And unless you know what you are doing, it IS scary. The numbers are big and the margin for error is small.

As Warren Buffet says: “Risk is being in the market not knowing what you are doing”

Yet, every day you hear about and see people making significant profit from the business of trading.

Are you really happy just watching from the sidelines? Do you think there are no deals left? Or do you think you have no time to do it? Maybe no money to start?

Our expert panel of trainers all started out with the same fears, but a definite drive to learn how others are doing it. And now…They are the experts making significant money and working their own hours while doing something they love. Isn’t that what we all want?

In a world of free property investment teaser-seminars or light information, consider this the black-sheep of the family. It is a small, intimate, focused workshop designed to give you the ‘how’, not just the ‘why’.

This workshop will teach you exactly how to trade and renovate successfully and help deal with the ‘No money/No time/No deals’ perception which may be holding you back. We also show you how to do this ethically and how to add high-quality housing stock in a desperately tight market.

This is NOT a typical property investment seminar. We would never be so cheeky as to charge $497 for a typical seminar, after all a lot of the information from normal seminars can be found for free if you look hard enough.

This is a small, intimate workshop where you are going to learn directly from professional traders and renovators who are doing it in the market right now and doing it very successfully. They are full-time at this, it is their business, their passion, and they have the rare ability to not only be great at DOING IT, but they are also great at TEACHING IT to others.

"Thanks to you all for the great weekend! Met some great people and got a good insight into how trading is done. I liked the way it was all presented. Open, honest and transparent." - Angus, Feb 2020

You will receive blueprints, strategies, tools, and support, to be able to do this successfully at your own pace. Even if you only do ONE trade in the next year, what difference could that make to your financial situation?

One of our clients used this information for their first-ever property trade and made an AFTER-TAX PROFIT of $47,000 (on a purchase price of only $540,100!) This is just one example of many. How many deals like that would it take to make a real difference to you?

Here’s what you’re going to get from this event:

In ADDITION to everything below you also get to come out in the field with our team to look at renovations and trade deals happening RIGHT NOW! There's nothing like seeing the deals for real and this day is worth more than the course fee alone!

The team will take you onsite to 'live' deals for a day, on a Wednesday of your choosing within three weeks of the workshop (or once COVID-19 has settled and it is safe to do so). Have all your questions answered in a live and relaxed environment! Do not miss this!

Here's what you get at the workshop:

Part 1: Trading For Profit

* The exact formulas used by James and Sally (and our clients) to analyse the deal to ensure a profit and stay safe.

* How to set a ‘B-Plan’ for when things don’t go the way they should (yes, it happens sometimes).

* Hear about the mistakes that have been made over the years, and the most common mistakes we see new traders making today, so you can avoid the loss (Rule #1: Don’t lose money!)

* How to find the deals in the current market: These strategies can be adapted to almost any market but just because you CAN doesn’t mean that you SHOULD. We will show you how to identify the best areas to achieve the greatest results.

* ‘No-Money Down’ deals and how to do them. Normally there is SOME money down SOMEWHERE on most deals, but we’ll show you how to do deals with very little (this stuff is exciting).

* Joint-Venture arrangements and how to do them to leverage your time, money and skills. Many successful traders use Joint Ventures to maximise their results, we will show you exactly how to do them and how to find the JV partners.

* Negotiating the deals to lock in profit at the time of purchase. You will never make money faster than you can by negotiating. Here you will learn from professionally-trained negotiators with over 20 years’ experience, and who have negotiated literally thousands of real estate contracts. (This session alone is worth 10x the workshop fee).

* Leveraging other people’s time to get the deals coming to you on a consistent basis.

* How to get ‘Deal-Flow’ from real estate agents - Agents are your life-blood with trading. You will learn the inside strategies from both sides of the fence: from the traders who know how they have built their relationships (relationships = money), and from two ex top-selling agents themselves on what works for them. This is gold!

* How to become a market expert to be able to recognise the deals before anybody else gets to them..

* The most important tool used by real estate professionals and how to access it.

You will also be happy to know...We don't use predatory tactics to source property. We hold ourselves to high ethical and moral standards and we will show you how the profits are made without resorting to dodgy tactics or un-ethical behaviour (whew).

Part 2: Renovating For Maximum Profit

As a property trader/flipper, or but-to-hold investor, this information will save you many thousands of dollars (on any single property) and many headaches. You will learn:

* How to fully renovate a house to a high standard in only four weeks! Sound impossible? This is the average time taken to renovate the hundreds of houses the team trade because of the systems and processes we have set up through years of experience, the good news is that you can copy it!

* Real case studies: No theory here. You will see real case studies which are current and be able to see the processes, strategies, challenges, mistakes, and outcomes. This is as real as it gets.

* The flow-charts, step-by-step processes and checklists used by professional full-time renovators. It has taken millions of dollars of transactions and much blood, sweat and tears to create these, and you get to have them to use straight away!

* Accessing suppliers in a tight market and maintaining a strong supplier relationship. Your ‘tradies’ are your life-blood in a renovation. Knowing how to get the right ones, who will turn up and do the right job is invaluable.

* Profit Hacks: Lessons which can only be learned from a lot of experience! The team will share these to save you tens of thousands (or more) and make you significantly more on a deal than someone without this information.

* The devil is in the details: A breakdown of the key issues you need to know for each supplier-type, we will show you, explain them, and give you the checklists as well!

* Renovating for your specific market: Over-capitalizing is sooooooo easy to do. It costs a lot of money and really slows you down. The team will show you how to adapt your renovation for your target market.

* Adding extra rooms for higher profit or extra cash-flow: The legalities, benefits and downsides to it as well as the ROI calculations and feasibility.

* Maximising the property’s sale potential. We want the best price in the shortest timeframe and there are very specific things which can be done to maximise these.

* Horror-Stories. Actually, we prefer comedy, so we will have a good laugh at some of the crazy things which we’ve seen go wrong. It will be a valuable laugh as it can save you a lot of money knowing what NOT to do!

* The numbers. “Do the math and the math will tell you what to do”. We will show you how to calculate the ROI on different renovation scenarios so you have a full picture and can make an informed decision.

* The profitable relationship between property trading and property investment

* Bringing it in on budget and on time! Both of these are important (time is money) and the team have got the system for this locked down tight.

And seriously, even MORE!

Obviously the value for money is substantial for this workshop, just one single strategy out of dozens can save or make you 10x the workshop fee. But please don’t mistake ‘cheap’ for ‘’nasty’. We want you to be blown away by the value you receive, as we do with all Assetlab courses, which is why we’ve priced it where it is.

Oh, and we always stand by our offers, so this comes with AssetLab’s full money-back guarantee as well. If you don’t think it’s awesome by lunchtime on the day, let us know and we will refund you. It doesn’t get much better than that!

But to make it even better again…

Here are a few bonuses for you as well:

MAJOR BONUSES!: Q&A with one of Auckland's top property traders, Rick Prakash. On average Rick has traded one property A WEEK for the last 5 years and is on track to do the same for 2020! Do you think that you could learn something from someone who started with nothing and who has achieved these results?

The 'LIVE' In-Market experience with the trainers from Trading Places on a Wednesday following the workshop (once COVID-19 has settled and it is safe to do so in a group)! Join our weekly field-trip to see 'live' potential deals, deals in progress and at different stages of renovation. You can ask any questions you like in a relaxed environment of like-minded people. There's nothing like seeing the real thing and it will help solidify all of the learnings from the workshop. It's going to be awesome!

We will issue you with a card linking you to our discount offer. You can save thousands of dollars on each property just with these savings alone!
