From the beginning of the industry, real estate infomercials have been very successful. There is something about the idea of making money in that appeals to many people. First, the information they have pretended to be, the secrets that only they knew, but would sell to you for a few small, or not so small sum of money, were fairly common knowledge easily gleaned at a local library or available free from the government. Secondly, the “testimony” from other, satisfied “the plan” has proven to have been paid actors reading from a script and play designed by the public producers.
Before they knew it they were calling and listing in the old Tom’s seminar, not because they are so taken with him and what he said, but because he has somehow believe they could be surrounded by beautiful , just like Tom. This was the beginning of the growth of the industry where there was little accountability, but still, Tom Vu was the model for almost all of the infomercials that followed over the years . Today, real estate infomercials have learned to use a portion of the superbly successful Tom Vu techniques and avoid legal problems.
They do not deliver a product – a book, a guide, a history of the profitability of real estate transactions that could be followed and could be profitable. You have all seen the young, handsome guy talking about the fortune he made for the purchase of houses no down, until they are fixing, and then to sell them at a profit. Have you noticed that it is sitting by the pool in Hawaii speak with one of its clients, a beautiful woman in a skimpy swimsuit? It will sell you a detailed guide of how he does what he does and a list of where to find what you can get free from the just made a few phone calls for free. Is it worth it? You decide.
