Your Questions About Real Estate Trend Alert Answered
Q: What is Real Estate Trend Alert?
A: Real Estate Trend Alert (RETA) is an exclusive service that brings its members the best real estate opportunities around the world…opportunities that promise strong capital appreciation, rental returns, or both…and big savings on members-only deals.
Q: How does it work?
A: Ronan negotiates real estate deals exclusively on behalf of Real Estate Trend Alert members. Ronan only recommends deals he would be happy to invest in himself. And, for a deal to cut his muster, he has to see clear potential for members to double their money in five to seven years. With a members-only deal, members get in before any other buyer…at pricing far below fair market value.
He is able to negotiate these deals with developers because of the combined group-buying power of all Real Estate Trend Alert members. That can lead to serious discounts on retail pricing… 10%, 20%, even 30% off and more.
Why do these developers agree to offer RETA members the unbeatable pricing they do? Well, it’s a simple win-win for each side. The developer gets quick and discreet sales from this group…allowing him to go to the local market with sales under his belt and the confidence to charge higher retail prices (i.e. the price everyone else pays)…and RETA members get a deal at a price no one else can even dream of.
Q: Is Real Estate Trend Alert a scam?
A: The short answer is no.
Ronan McMahon has been investing in real estate since he left college. You can read more about how Ronan got started here.
The idea of Real Estate Trend Alert is to bring the best real estate deals straight to members’ inboxes. Only the crème de la crème of deals make it through…those where there is a path to investors doubling their money. It might be a play on a crisis market…hand-picked bank fire sales…an emerging locale where a new road is fueling the real estate market…an off-market deal where Ronan negotiates exclusive access (and discounts) for members of Real Estate Trend Alert. Ronan also invests in these deals himself.
Ronan and his team of researchers and scouts do all the legwork…analyzing market dynamics, identifying macro trends, putting boots on the ground, running the rule over potential opportunities. For every deal, a Real Estate Trend Alert member sees, countless others have been rejected.
The deals members do see are so good that people often think it’s too good to be true. But it’s all legit. The deals are a win-win for both Real Estate Trend Alert members and real estate developers.
Think of it like Sam’s Club. Manufacturers and retailers know there’s a big group of members that will buy in bulk, but only if the price is right. So, they do special discounts for those buyers. It’s all about group buying power.
When Ronan identifies a market with a big macro trend that will drive real estate prices up (say, a rising population and lack of land to build on), he’ll look for best-in-class developers in that market. He’ll go to them, let them know about Real Estate Trend Alert, and tell them he’d like to put a deal in front of his group. But only if the deal is seriously good. Smart developers immediately take notice. They can see that this is a win-win…a way to get sales without impacting their regular, retail market.
Here’s an example: Imagine a developer has a plan to sell 200 condos over five years. If he sells 50 of those condos to RETA members at a fat discount before he goes out to the public, it gives him a bunch of sales under his belt…and the confidence to go to the public at a higher retail price.
These quick sales might also allow him to cut his initial project plan from five years to three years. That means two years’ less fixed monthly overhead costs, and less project risk. It also means he can move on to new opportunities quicker.
Everything about this is above board and legal. Real Estate Trend Alert members get access to deals they would not otherwise even know about (and the chance to profit from their investment in the future) and developers have a ready-made audience who are keen to buy good-value, good-quality real estate.
Q: What kind of people join Real Estate Trend Alert?
A: All sorts of people! Some are seasoned real estate investors, but others have never purchased any real estate. Some have big budgets…others a more modest amount to invest. Some are looking to buy purely for investment, others want a lifestyle play (a second or vacation home, or a future retirement home). Some want to build a portfolio, and plan to buy multiple properties—others only want that one special, dream home. They come from all walks of life, from places as far afield as Singapore, Australia, the UK, and North America.
One thing they all have in common: they want to make money…or save big…on overseas real estate.
Q: How much money do I need to buy a property overseas?
A: Real Estate Trend Alert covers everything from low-priced lots in places like Uruguay, Brazil, and Costa Rica which are in the mid-$30,000 price bracket (and come with financing so you only make a manageable down payment and then a mix of monthly and balloon payments)….homes in Portugal for €133,000 and condos in Spain for under €100,000—in both those countries foreigners can get bank mortgages, at very low interest rates)…right through to luxury homes in a 5-star golf and beach resort. There’s something to suit most tastes and pocketbooks.
