If you (or your family) has a vacant lot somewhere out there that has been left idle and un-utilized, have you ever wondered if it’s possible to use it to start your own build-and-sell real estate business? Maybe, this idea has never crossed your mind, but think about it. Your unused property can be the start of something big.
Think of the possibilities
If you do have a vacant lot lying around, what if you built a house on it (or multi-units like a row of townhouses, or several apartment units, etc.) and sell it for a profit, or have it rented out for cashflow. Imagine the income it can generate! Actually the possibilities are endless, but it’s really all up to you.
On the flip-side, you can also just let it sit idle and do nothing, and hope it can be of use someday (who knows, you might even be required to pay idle land tax… think about it, you are taxed because you are not using your land, sounds crazy but it can happen).
Here’s what a friend of mine did with an inherited vacant lot
My friend Maves Angeles faced a similar situation before, when her husband inherited a vacant lot. They were afraid to use it at first due to lack of funds. They were also afraid of what other people might say, etc. It can get very complicated, and most people would probably just give up. But not Maves…
She was able to overcome all of those obstacles and she was able to use that vacant lot for her first build-and-sell project, which she completed successfully. Now, building and selling her own properties is her business. Nice!
How did Maves do it?
Before I share Maves’ story on how she got started with her build-and-sell business, I just want to let you know that Maves has been a good friend for a long time (I think we met several years ago during a Think Rich Pinoy Seminar, which she used to handle). We also often bumped into her at The Feast PICC.
Speaking of The Feast PICC, Maves and her husband Christian head the Connect Group we belong to (it’s like a support group, under the Light of Jesus founded by brother Bo Sanchez, who are behind The Feast PICC). If there’s one thing you should know about Maves, it’s this: Maves has a good heart. In tagalog, “mabuti siyang tao”, na “may malinis na puso”. When it comes to real estate, she is one of those that I can truly trust (Obviously, I trust Maves beyond real estate).
Anyway, I think it would be best to let Maves share her own story, and how she can teach you to do the same. You may read it below:
Hi, my name is Maves Angeles.
Yes, I lived in a squatters’ area or in legal term “illegal settlers.” We’ve lived in places beside creeks, with small pathways where only one or two people can pass, flood-prone areas where you always have to walk on chairs because there’s flood inside the house, a family of six living in less than 20 sqm room. For 20 years, we transferred houses more than 15 times.
Then when I got married, my husband inherited a lot that we later used to build and sell properties.
At first, I was afraid to use the inherited lot of my husband for property development because we don’t have enough cash. I was also afraid of what other people would say especially that my mother-in-law passed away less than three years ago.
But our friends and family know that aside from the property that was left to my husband and brother-in-law, also came financial and emotional difficulties. We have to pay almost P1 million in taxes, half a million in medical bills, and another hundreds of thousands to pay illegal settlers, pursue court cases and pay debts. I was not moving nor suggesting for solutions because I was busy with my own business. Most of all, I was afraid of what other people might say as I take over the inherited lot.
Also, at that time, I was buying and selling properties… of OTHER people. Until one day it hit me: I am helping other people profit from their property while my husband and brother-in-law are having a hard time saving money from their salaries as employees to settle all their financial burdens.
With love and concern, I decided to help them and I was able to create a sound business plan that will maximize the property that was left to us. And it is building and selling townhouses.
To date we are slowly paying our obligations and my husband and brother-in-law are keeping their bond together as brothers in facing trials that they thought were insurmountable as mountains.
Now, I was thinking what if my husband learned to build and sell during the lifetime of his parents? They could have earned millions and enjoyed the profit as a family. But things just didn’t happen that way.
This is the reason why I want to speak to you.
I am not an architect or an engineer, but I was able to BUILD and SELL these townhouses successfully.
Do you want to experience great relationships with your parents during their lifetime or relatives through a Real Estate Business?
Do you want to start a Real Estate Build and Sell Business but are afraid because you’re not an architect or an engineer?
I’ve done it! And I can show you how.
I want to help you not only start your own build and sell business, but also for you to be able to help your parents or family members reap the harvest of their hardships.
Among all other people, the BEST person to help your family, especially your parents, is YOU because you love them and you will do your best to profit from the property.
But maybe right now, you are already looking for a lot or property investment outside your family—that’s fine, nothing wrong with that. You can still enroll in this program.
The main goal of my Build and Sell Apprentice Blueprint is to teach you to earn from the property that you already have. It is an actual walk-through in building and selling townhouses.
Together with my team, we will pour out our hearts and minds to give you the best practices to successfully build and sell townhouses.
At the end of the program, you will be able to come up with your own blueprint.

How You Will Learn
(My Mode Of Teaching)
The program will last 16 weeks—and we’ll meet twice a month—with assignments in between.
Remember: Teaching mode is experiential and practical.
There will be classroom meetings and special sessions at the project site itself.
Mentors who will be sharing are experts in their respective fields and the ideas you’ll get from them can never be learned from professors who simply read books and don’t do the actual work on the ground.
You’ll also witness the actual building and selling of my Paranaque and Pateros Projects. And you’ll also be brought to other site locations to learn more.
How Much Will This Cost?
Let me boast. I realized that no one in the country is doing anything even remotely similar to my program. This is a very unique 16-Week highly practical, hands-on, “actual” and “live” coaching program on the nitty-gritty of Buy & Sell Real Estate work.
In other countries, programs like this will cost you P220,000.00 And if I was after the money, that’s how much I’ll sell this course.
But I’m not after the money. In truth, I can earn much more doing Real Estate deals than spending my time teaching others how to do it. Besides, why would I want to share my trade secrets to others? (Think about it: I sweat blood and tears to learn what I know now.)
Answer: Because life finds a way to reward me. Deep down, I believe this is my mission, to mentor others. Who knows? By helping others, some of my students may become my partners for future projects.
So I’ve brought down the enrollment cost to an insane 20% of the price of my foreign counterparts:P59,920 ONLY or P8560 a month for 8 months for my entire “Buy & Sell Apprentice Blueprint” Coaching Program. Yes, I still charge because I value my time and my expertise. And this amount will act as a filter—I don’t want to waste my time with “tire-kickers” who won’t be committed to learn. By charging this amount, I will get serious students only. And I guarantee my students will get 10x the value of their learning investment.
You Need To Be Exceedingly Happy
Or I Return Your Money
Let me give another insane offer: If at the end of the course, you’re not happy with my program, then tell me. I’ll return your money, no questions asked.
Why do I give you this full 100% guarantee? Because I’m totally confident that my coaching program can help you move towards your goal of earning through real estate.
If you have any questions, please email me at email@example.com And I’ll be happy to answer you.
May you reach your dreams.
PS. I can accept only a few students, and some slots have already been filled. As of now, I can accept 18 students ONLY. If you want to enter my program, email me right away at firstname.lastname@example.org before the door closes on you.

Would I recommend this?
If you have attended any of the talks I have given in the past about buying and selling foreclosed properties, you will know that I have said getting into the build-and-sell business is quite complicated, and I would not recommend it for beginners.
However, if you will have a mentor who will guide you throughout the whole process, and if you are starting with a property you/your family already owns, just like in Maves’ story above, then my answer would be Yes! I highly recommend this program.
Full disclosure: If you signup using the link below, I will get a referral fee, but please bear in mind that even without the referral fee, I would still recommend this.
You might be asking, “But what if we don’t have a property yet that we can use for build-and-sell?”
I have a solution for this. To complement this program, I can give you a very special bonus, if you do decide to signup for Maves’ program. Foreclosed properties can be a great source for properties which you can use for build-and-sell, and you can learn all about foreclosed properties through our online training, and you can get access to our online training for free.
Yes, as a bonus, I will give you complimentary access to our very own “How to Buy and Sell Foreclosed Properties” online training when it re-opens sometime in November 2014. Our program is a 90-day online course that has 11 modules and at least 40 topics (the course is growing as we are adding more topics to cover questions asked by participants), with one objective, move you closer to buying your first foreclosed property investment (this is worth USD197).
To be eligible for our exclusive bonus, all you have to do is signup using my link below, and let me know through our contact form or just leave a comment here (will not be published). Once confirmed, I will give you instructions on how you can join the online training this November 2014.
