Nv Real Estate Academy - I worked for NV. System designed to make money for Nick and build hype and confidence for attendees. You can do it on your own for a lot less.
Nick's system is much like other gurus out there. It's a business, designed to make money, and lots of it. They tease you, sell you, upsell you again, and upsell you some more just when you thought you had bought it all. Each time they make you feel like you need to go "all in" to become successful. The bus tour costs 25k per person. 2 people for 50k. Then there's the 3 day one-on-one coaching for, what, 25k more? The truth is, you get excited and believe you can close deals, but outside of the help you get from other bus tour attendees, you are on your own when it comes to actually finding and financing a deal
Let's be clear: it's a tough market and it's pretty hard to find great deals; and good, but not great deals are hard to sell to fellow tour members and hard money lenders. Nick builds up the hype and your confidence, but reality is at your doorstep when you return home. The relatively few success stories are broadcast on the facebook page by proud attendees ("pride members") who have been able to turn their education and confidence (and usually someone's investment) into a good profit. These people used NV as a catalyst to get going. But there are many, many more people who have had no such success. Many attendees expect success to just happen because they bought into the program. Folks, it's hard work to make money, even if you have a lot to work with: that's the bottom line.
The sad truth is that many NV students have spent their last penny and used all their credit on a NV education and have nothing to spend when it comes time to put down earnest money on a deal. It really does take money to make money, so be smart and don't spend it all on your education.
Do get an education, one way or another. If you have a lot of money to spend, NVREA will teach you all the basics and get your excitement and confidence level sky high for big bucks. But there are investor groups everywhere. Join one and participate in biggerpockets.com and other such sites, and save your hard earned money so you have some money to invest in your deals. Find local like-minded people to mentor you, hold your hand, and get your first deals done. It works: this is how I got started and made my money flipping houses full time. You are the creator of your destiny and can reach success in real estate with or without Nick Vertucci. I did!
