And then driving in the car later, I heard a very perky voice talking about a great free real estate seminar, how to flip houses in just! two! steps! with none of your own money! Just call some toll-free number to register! And it was our old friend Than Merrill.
Ha. I heard the same thing recently. Iíve been watching this show a lot more since they brought back the reruns and recently was checking out the CT Homes Facebook page. Not sure about the other crews, but Than & Company appear to be doing very well. Selling lots of stuff around San Diego and pitching a lot through those seminars. With their nice-guy image and Than, the All American, Iím sure that they are selling a lot of real estate advice.
Itís interesting to look at the 3 most prominent flippers on Flip This House. Richard Davis attempted to expand his model by, he never really explained, but a Franchise model it sounded like. I think that pretty much failed.
Then there was Armando who, very typically, seemed to just throw together a garbage product and sell that to people through sleezy informercials.
And then there is CT Homes who have always appeared to be the most organized. Even before they were pitching their services, they seemed to actually have something of value that they could teach people. I remembered Paul had a huge binder of information that Iím assuming they share with their students. And I believe one of the flips they did in CT was discovered by a student of theirs.
So out of these guys, CT Homes seems to be doing the best, despite a pretty lousy market the last few years.
But yeah, back to Thanís radio commercial, he sounded like he really was turning it up a notch with the enthusiasm.
