Cody Sperber catches your attention, “Stop buying courses. No more wasting time trying to do real estate deals on your own. If you wanna flip a house and do it within the next 30 days or less and get paid? Boy do I have something for you. Let’s do some deals together. I’ve been in the real estate game for 18+ years, done thousands of deals, I do deals all over the country and I wanna work with you. I’m gonna give you a free deal finding software, free training, no courses to buy.”
Cody says he’ll get you everything you need to start closing these deals. All ya gotta do is hand em’ of to the Clever Investor himself, he’ll do the flipping and you’ll both split the profits. What’s just incredibly ironic is he says “Yeah, I’m not gonna sell you a course like all the other gurus,” even though he’s been doing exactly that for over a decade now. It’s bought him a pretty nice life too. You’ll see him flaunt his Mansion, Lambo, and exotic trips in all his marketing that you probably paid for. But now he’s apparently had a change of heart and wants you to be his new front line deal finding employee.
What a cool guy, I bet you just feel honored for him to make you his little foot soldier (AS IF!). He really thinks you’ll enjoy doing all the work and him taking half the profit. But he thinks that shouldn’t bother you because you can do this from anywhere, anytime, and don’t need any skills or licenses. “My system has been perfected over the last 18+ years, and I’ve helped thousands of my students do their first quick flip deal,” Cody brags. “Now here’s a quick flip profit of $7,000 [as he holds up the contract]. Here’s another one right here for $25,000. Another one for $3,950. Then $10,000.”
Cody claims that he’s done over $200k worth of deals this month. But how do you calculate that? That could just be the price of one home, meaning he did only 1 deal and pocketed wayyy less than 200k. He might not specify, but he makes sure to tell us his students are crushing it….Brian made 25k. Conrnelius made 8.5k. A dude named Paul made “a fat stack of hundreds.” Christopher closed a deal of just about $80k. At this point Cody has said “quick” like every other word. Which I’m sure he’ll backpedal on any minute now so he doesn’t get hit with promoting “get rich quick” by the FTC.
He stresses that because everyone else is going crazy in the world right now, not knowing what to do, you can take this opportunity to get ahead. “I’m here to show you how you can take back control,” Cody says, “and make a ton of money quick flipping properties [there’s that word quick again], do it quickly [I can’t even make this up], and then hopefully go out there and help your friends and family do the same [wait, so are you supposed to recruit them into this too? Because that sounds a little MLM-y if you ask me, but, I dunno, maybe he didn’t mean it like that?].”
Basically what this comes down to is just a dressed up version of Wholesaling. His three steps are…Step 1: Find deals to flip. Apparently 1/10 homeowners are motivated sellers and will do it fast to get whatever cash they can asap. Cody has a software that helps you find them (how convenient). Step 2: Negotiate with the folks to get it under contract. Step 3: Find a buyer who will pay more than that and keep the difference. Well, not exactly, Cody will come after his cut of the profit.
Of course his pitch at the end backpedals everything he just built up like the guru he really is. “If you’re somebody who’s lazy, if you hesitate all the time, or you just have your hand out and you think I’m gonna do all the work for you and then just give you a buncha money? That’s not how this thing’s gonna work. I’m interested in working with somebody who’s self-motivated. I’m way too rich to waste my time with anyone else.” Ultimately, the cost to be Cody’s little minion is $97 plus a lot of upsells. No thank you.
