The "How to buy foreclosed properties" training is literally a step-by-step where you get everything you need to actually invest in profitable properties

The training is a 10 module step-by-step digital course that walks you through exactly how to find, analyze, buy, renovate, and sell/lease real estate (with focus on foreclosed properties from banks).

What’s included in the training?

I created the videos based on our own experiences and lessons learned, and I edited them all myself to keep them short, and direct to the point, while ensuring nothing important will be left out.
  • This is based on real life problems and questions from real people - In addition to our own experience, the content for the training is also based on our interaction with thousands of people on our blog where I have answered more than 4,000 questions related to problems people encounter when investing in foreclosed properties.

My story: Why I had to create my own training about foreclosed property investing

I'm often invited to share our own experiences and lessons learned about investing in foreclosed properties at seminars, real estate events, and also on T.V. shows, just like ANC On The Money below.

People tell me they learned a lot, but they often say they want to learn more and get all the details, and ask if I have my own training.

I was hesitant to create my training because I knew how much I have to cover after doing my own deals, and a good training must give the most complete picture of investing in foreclosed properties. I knew this would be a huge undertaking that would take a lot of time and effort to finish, especially since I am working on my own deals.

But through the years, so many people kept asking for help from me, many end up losing money, and the worst part is others get scammed! A lot simply have no idea what to do next, and I receive more and more questions through my blog on a daily basis.

A friend of mine once said that if I don't share what we have learned, people might have nowhere to get reliable information...

It became very clear that I just had to create this training

I feel that it's not right for people to rely on incomplete information out there, so after more than 4 years, I was finally able to create this training.

Looking back, how I wish there was a step-by-step training like this when I was getting started. And it turns out that I would have to be the one to create one for everyone.

Simply put, my goal with this training is to equip you with the knowledge and wisdom gained through years of experience, so that those who go through this training can actually go out there and start investing in real estate the right way.

I held nothing back and shared just about everything we have learned through the years, and I am committed to helping you achieve your real estate investing success, through this training.

Now you will know what worked for me so you can do the same, and avoid making the same mistakes that I did.

I look forward to working with you inside the training area.

Sincerely yours,

Jay Castillo and Cherry Vi Castillo

My name is Jay Castillo, and I started as a tool to help me when I was still starting with investing in foreclosed properties. Little did I know that it will be a big help to others who are just starting with real estate.

My passion is with making things work, and documenting what works, what doesn't... and this is exactly what I've been doing with real estate.

After several successful deals, I was able to quit my job as the I.T. Manager of a multinational company to focus on real estate full-time, and I have been documenting my real estate journey ever since.

I am also a PRC licensed Real Estate Broker with REB License # 3194.

Cherry Vi Castillo

My wife Cherry Castillo helps me when it comes to legal aspects and taxation of real estate.

She is also a Licensed Real Estate Broker (PRC Real Estate Broker License No. 3187), Real Estate Appraiser, and Lawyer (Roll of Attorneys No. 55239), and CPA (PRC CPA License No. 0102054).

How much will it cost?

Before you think of the cost to enroll in the HOW TO BUY FORECLOSED PROPERTIES training, consider these:

  • What will it cost if you make a mistake when buying real estate? The downpayment alone on a bad deal can cost hundreds of thousands of pesos.
  • How long will it take for you to try to figure this all out by yourself and do your research and spend a lot of time (years) but still have too many questions. How much will that cost in terms of time, which you will never get back.
  • Getting a mentor can cost you an "arm and a leg" (the last "real estate guru" I know who did this was charging Php 10,000/hour) and yet these "gurus" often disappear without a trace when you need them the most.
  • You can attend many seminars and spend tens of thousands of pesos to cover everything but still have so many questions left unanswered about foreclosed properties...

Actually, you also have to think about the value of everything that you will get from a training.

Yes, there will be a cost, but the benefits and value should make it all worth it (or get your money back!)

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the training through online videos or live (face-to-face in a class room) or podcast or virtual (through webinars)?
It is a combination of both videos (with equivalent audio that are like podcasts), live webinars, and an actual meetup. With regard to live webinars, ours is really live, wherein there is no lag (unlike other webinars out there where there is a 30-second to 1-minute delay). We can talk in real-time, it’s really like we are in a live meeting/virtual classroom. The date of the live and face-to-face meetup will be announced in the middle of the training.
Where is the training venue?
The training is mostly a digital and online training course, which means you can access it online from where ever you are, as long as you have a reliable internet connection. Alternately, you can download the audio files (MP3 format), and the slides/training materials for offline learning. The venue is basically anywhere you choose, as long as your device can play the videos/audio files!
I am based abroad / US /outside of Metro Manila/ I'm an OFW / I won't be back in the Philippines anytime soon/ Can I still attend the training?
Since the training is mostly digital, you will be able to access it online from anywhere in the world, as long as you have a reliable internet connection.
Are the videos downloadable?
Not anymore, only audio files are downloadable. Video files are no longer downloadable because I can no longer provide the Platinum membership upgrade (it's just too costly and time consuming to maintain/update the video files). The videos are huge and it would not make sense to download them, especially since they are being updated regularly.
What is the training schedule?
Groups of training modules and all lessons under each module will be unlocked on a monthly basis to prevent overwhelm. The training officially starts on July 31, 2017 (when enrollment closes - can be earlier if slots are filled up fast), But you can already access Modules 1 to 4 upon enrollment. Module 5 -7 will be unlocked after 30-days, and Modules 8 - 10 will be unlocked after 60-days. The complete list of modules and topics can be seen above (under Class Curriculum)
Is the training schedule fixed or can I access the training at my own pace?
The unlocking of the training modules is fixed (refer to schedule above) but once unlocked, you can go through the training at your own pace (you can even download the audio and slides for offline learning). Schedules for the Q and A sessions are to be finalized based on results of the survey to be conducted inside the training, to maximize attendance, and make the most out of each session.
Can the training be done during weekends?
Yes, you can actually access the training any day, 24x7, at your own convenience. The live Q and A webinar sessions are done during Saturday evenings.
How many hours per day do I need / how long will it take to finish the training?
All you need is 1 to 2 hours per week. On the average, each module will have several video lessons that are about 10 to 30 minutes long each, and will be about 2 hours in total. You can also play the videos at faster speeds to finish quickly. My advice is to spend about 30 minutes a day so you can go through each module easily in a week. The whole training is meant to be taken in 4 months, so you will have time to do the action steps for each module. You can rest assured that you will have lifetime access in case you need to review a module when doing your own deals.
My wife and I want to enroll, do you give a discount for couples?
Yes of course! You will get the best discount for couples: only one of you needs to enroll, and both of you can access the training, as a couple. It does not get any better than that!
Do you give discounts to fellow brokers? We are in the same brokers organization. :-)
To make it fair to everyone, everyone on the waiting list gets the best price. Once you see what's inside this training, you will understand that you are getting the best value for your money, or you can get your money back with my 30-day money back guarantee..
Can you give me a list of properties in _______ ? Can you provide property management services? Can you help me get a loan for my target property/next project?
Sorry guys, I no longer provide real estate broker related services as we are now focused on our own real estate investments, among a lot of many things that need our focus and attention. We had to say goodbye to brokerage for now because it was eating up the biggest amount of our time, and it was really not compatible with our other current priorities. Thank you for understanding.
Can you apply what you will learn and start investing in real estate even if you are abroad?
It will be very difficult because you need to do physical due diligence and other things that can only be done while physically present. While you can outsource the legwork, I highly recommend that you will still be the one to decide to buy a property or not, so there won't be any blaming down the road. However, If you are planning to come home to do the actual investing in the near future, then you can attend this training while abroad, and then you can apply what you will learn when you come home.
I just want to quit my job and focus on real estate full-time. Would you recommend this?
No! Don't quit your jobs yet! Please don't! Stay in your jobs and just do real estate investing on the side. Yes, it's possible! Only resign/quit your job after you have more than enough income replacement from real estate or other sources of income.
Will I earn CPD units in this course?
At the moment, we cannot guarantee that this will qualify for CPD units as self-directed learning. Technically, it should qualify, but we have not yet tried it. My wife and I have to confirm this with the PRC.
Hi Jay, is this training a lifetime access? or will it expire once you open again the training to the next batch?
All of you will have lifetime access, and it will not expire when there's a new batch down the road.
