It’s Changing…

By Ken Wood | Wealth and Investing

My name is Ken Wood, I'm the co-owner of Universal Events.

You probably haven't heard a lot from me in the past. I've preferred to work behind the scenes as we grew Universal Events to be one of the leading Business, Investment and Personal Education companies in Australia.

You usually hear from Karen Corban, the Founder of Universal Events (and my lovely wife).

I just wanted to give you a heads up that things are changing a little bit.

As well as your regular messages from Karen, I'll also be sending you some very special invitations to a set of exciting property events we have coming up.

Why All The Different Property Events?

You may have noticed we've been offering a range of events educating you on smart and powerful property strategies over the past 6 to 12 months.In particular, Phil Anderson's Your Property Game Plan events where thousands of people have learned how to create a million-dollar Australian property portfolio for the cost of their lunch money or less.

And then there's the How To Buy US Property On Sale Now events helping you make an informed decision about the massive opportunity in the US right now to acquire below replacement cost houses in quality neighbourhoods whilst the Aussie Dollar is so strong.

And tomorrow I'll be letting you know about another equally compelling and BRAND NEW opportunity for you to acquire property for zero holding costs, no interest and gives you a way to by-pass the banks altogether!

(Watch this space)

So, why have been offering you all these different events?

Well, to start with, we've done several surveys of the Universal Events community to find out what everyone wants and the demand for more property education has been overwhelming. So, we've gone and found the very best educators, strategies and support teams to give you that property training and help you grow your wealth through real estate.

Secondly, we know that the Universal Events community is about something more than just making money for the sake of it. You want a better life, for yourself and your family. You're interested in making a contribution and living your passion. You know that wealth is more than your bank account and you're not prepared to run with the herd, doing things the “hard” way when you could be doing them the “smart” way.

That's why each of the property strategies we're bringing to you are out of the ordinary.

While everyone else is paying retail for their Australian properties and negatively gearing themselves up to their eyeballs, Phil Anderson is showing you how to grow a multi-million dollar portfolio for what you spend on a hamburger.

While most people put their heads in the sand and only listen to the media hype and headlines, our US Property team is showing you how to turn adversity to your advantage and get in on an investment opportunity most of us haven't seen before in our lifetimes.

And now I have one more very special property opportunity, one that requires a very small deposit, no holding costs, no interest costs and very little risk. This is the way all the BIG PLAYERS (sophisticated investors & developers) have been approaching property investing for centuries allowing them to achieve astonishing results and incredible returns outside the realms of the ordinary investor. And now, due to a strange quirk of the GFC, for the first time you are actually in a prime position to take advantage of this rarely known strategy.

More on that tomorrow watch out for my special video message.I'd love to hear from you. What you'd like to see more of. How we can be helping you grow your wealth, find your freedom and live your passion. Email me anytime.

Until then, you can be assured we are always working to bring you the very best business, personal and investment education on offer and I hope you enjoy the next few months of outstanding property education.

Note (As of 2016): Universal Stars is no longer involved in US property investing. The US property market has improved with the recovery in the economy, so that the attractive buying opportunities have largely dried up now. Instead, take a look at the property investing formula created by Phil Anderson and the remarkable track record of success it has produced.

What Monty Python can teach You about The Current US Debt Crisis

By Ken Wood | Wealth and Investing

From the desk of Ken Wood, Co-owner Universal Events

Well, if you've been reading the papers, watching TV, or tuning in to your social networks over the last couple of weeks, the US debt crisis and stock market ups and downs have been dominating the headlines and most media commentators are claiming the sky is falling!

Often, there's very little factual or detailed information beyond the hype of media headlines and, as a result, I've had people writing to me asking what all this means for the US Property Market and our upcoming US Property 1-day seminars.

Has the US Property Market Started to Turnaround?

By Ken Wood | Wealth and Investing

There's no doubting it. The US Property Market is the lowest it's been since the Great Depression, with properties discounted up to 70% in many areas.

And, for international investors, this is proving to be a boon time. The lower value of the US dollar, combined with properties offering strong positive cashflow (double digit yields of 14% to 19% common in certain areas) is creating a buying frenzy for international investors.

It's no wonder the Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate (AFIRE) found a record level of interest in the US from foreign investors in its 2011 Annual Foreign Investment Survey.

The US is considered the country providing the best opportunities for capital appreciation by more foreign investors than any time in the past 10 years.

JIM FETGATTER, Chief Executive, AFIRE

And whilst experienced investors like Donald Trump, Warren Buffett and big local names like Thorney Investments and Dixon Advisory have been capitalising on this once-in-a-generation buyers market, there are hints we may be seeing the bottom of the market with many areas showing signs of a turnaround (in some cases the turnaround is occurring much faster than experts have been predicting):

  1. June 2011 S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices shows US Home Prices have risen for the first time in 8 months
  2. Foreclosures down 18% from the peak
  3. July 2011 National Association of Realtors Pending Home Sales Index shows the number of homes being sold is increasing, with some areas showing a rapid turnaround going from soft activity to contract signings rising by more than 30% from a year ago.

Higher prices, fewer foreclosures and more properties being sold means the dramatic over-supply of housing, which has kept prices at 80 year lows, is showing signs of tightening and that means the window of opportunity currently open for international investors won't stay open for long.

Absorption of inventory is the key to price improvement, and this solid gain in contract signings implies that home values in many localities are or will soon be stabilising as inventories get absorbed at a faster pace.

LAWRENCE YUN, Chief Economist, National Association of Realtors

You still have time if you act fast to take advantage of what many are calling The Greatest Wealth Creation Opportunity Since the Great Depression. If you leave it too long though, you may find you have missed out you need to get the facts now.

When it comes to investing in property, there are literally dozensof formulas and models.

  1. Buy and Hold
  2. Renovation
  3. Property Development
  4. Wrapping
  5. Options… and more
The Property Investor’s Dilemma…

How can you tell which is best suited to you and your unique situation?

Which one is going to give you the outcome and lifestyle, YOU want (and that can be different for each of us)?

After all, if you make a mistake in property investing, it can take years to recover and you could end up stuck with something that doesn’t suit your lifestyle or your budget, and that could cost you in more ways than just money – stress, time with family, your health…

It Comes Down To These Three Things…
According to property multi-millionaire Phil Anderson (who’s tried just about every property investment model there is!) finding the right model to suit your own unique situation comes down to three things.

Click here now to find out what they are
(if you are not assessing each and every property decision you make on the basis of these three things, you could be making a huge mistake).

This information is only available for a limited time and then we’re pulling it down, so make sure you find out what these three must-know factors are right now.

During this video, Phil shares with you the two things he believes are going to be the biggest stumbling blocks for property investors throughout 2011 and what the A-Grade Investors are doing to turn those stumbling blocks to their advantage.

Find out why the property investment models of even a couple of years ago are out-dated and potentially costing you thousands upon thousands of dollars and keeping you stressed out due to under-performing investments, while those who know the new formula for investing are comfortably able to grow their portfolio for just the cost of their lunch money or less.

Special GIFT for you – 3-Part Video

By univstarsau | Wealth and Investing

Almost everyone I talk to is under pressure right now.

It’s been a tough year and many people are struggling with debt, businesses that are way down on previous years and worries about whether there’ll be any money left for retirement.

(That’s why I’ve included a special educational gift for you in this message, valued at $197… read on to learn more).

With the massive housing shortage in Australia right now (Housing Industry Association predicts the undersupply to quadruple by 2020) property continues to be one of the best investments you can make, especially if you’re smart about where and when you buy…and it doesn’t have to take a lot of money or a lot of your time.

Let me tell you about a friend of mine, Phil Anderson, who was able to retire at just 38 after creating a multi-million dollar property portfolio with very little risk, using just the cost of his lunch money or less. Now he travels the world, lives in a beautiful waterfront home, and most importantly, has plenty of time to spend with his young children.

And yet, he didn’t start out living the high life…

Phil grew up in very humble surroundings on a dairy farm in rural New South Wales, wearing his sister’s hand me down clothes and never owning a store-bought toy. He knew he’d never inherit wealth or have any money given to him to make a start in life.

That’s when he set about educating himself in property and business. He tested different investing models and made his share of mistakes. He started his own small business too, only to find he was working 24/7, in debt and with no time for his young family.

The turning point came when he discovered one vital success secret that enabled him to go on to became a star student of Tony Robbins and Chris Howard, win the coveted Mr Australia title, build a successful chain of Health Gyms and an enviable property portfolio that has now freed him from the rat race and given him the kind of lifestyle he’d dreamed of as a young boy.

And since then he’s used this one vital success secret to perfect a tried and tested, profitable property investing model that he’s now willing to share with you.

Phil reveals this success secret (and much more) in his 3-Part Lunch Money Property Millionaire Insight Program.  It’s valued at $197, and it’s yours today as my gift.

Even if you are not sure you want to learn about property investing, just watching how Phil thinks, his process for creating wealth and the steps he has taken to build a system for creating leverage are really powerful lessons and will help you, whatever path to wealth you are on.
