Real Estate Investing Video: Utilizing Land Trusts as a Real Estate InvestorLast Tuesday night, my business partner, Dusty Keefe, spoke at the Charleston Real Estate Investor’s Association on “Utilizing Trusts for Asset Protection as a Real Estate Investor.” Unfortunately, I could not make it sense I was presenting on the recruiting private money webinar that night (which went Outstanding!! if I could say so myself). But . . . one of our buddy’s video taped it for us and we’re going to share a clip with you from the other night!

If you aren’t yet privy to the power of trusts in real estate investing, check this out. Dusty covered a ton of content ranging from the players in a trust (the trustee, beneficiary, successor trustee, director, etc), the differences between land trusts, personal property trusts and living trusts, some of the many benefits like getting your name off public record, avoiding probate, protecting yourself when buying subject to, avoiding seasoning problems, transactional privacy, and much more.

Here’s what some of the attendees had to say about it:

“I was very impressed by Dusty’s knowledge and his willingness to share it. Hope he’s available at other meetings for questions once I have a grasp on his information. Thanks Dusty for your brilliance!

– Sheryl Greenberg

“Dusty, your presentation was unbelievable, and it was packed with valuable information and tips. As I told Patrick, you all should be commended for all the free information that you are willing to share in order to help others succeed. Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge and experience about land trusts with the group, and I look forward to learning more from you in the future. The group is lucky to have you and Patrick as members.”

-Bryant Pearson

“Dusty did do a wonderful job of explaining and trusts. I have always been somewhat confused by these and to date have never used them because I wasn’t really sure how. Thanks to Dusty I now have a greater understanding and am planning to begin using trusts on future purchases. Greatly appreciate Dusty’s time and willingness to share information.”

-Karen Rapchick

“Dusty did an excellent job. He stepped to the plate (with very little advance notice) and clobbered it. He really opened my eyes to different approaches; the info was priceless. Thanks again!”

-Rob Robinson

Dusty’s spoke for over an hour but here’s a short clip on the benefits of transactional privacy with land trusts and how Walt Disney used this technique to lock up over 28,000 acres for pennies on the dollar.

If you are interested in gaining access to the entire lesson, all you have to do is sign up for the email updates on the site.

This is just the tip of the iceberg as far as trusts go. Just so you know, this kind of information usually costs thousands of dollars and you would get it from someone less knowledgeable than Dusty. Dusty has studied asset protection, specifically, using trusts in real estate for many years. Enjoy!

    I was lucky enough to be at the meeting the other night. very in depth content.


  3. Do most attorneys understand using land trusts to buy real estate? What is the best paperwork to use?

  4. I highly appreciate Dusty for sharing benefits and techniques of transactional privacy with land trusts. That’s pretty interesting and informative. Thanks

    No, most attorneys that I’ve come across do not understand the ins and outs of land trusts.

    We use Louis Brown’s trust paperwork. That’s what I would suggest.
