Accurate Review of Nathan Merrill and Fortune Builders

Than Merrill, one of the newer stars from A&E's hit show "Flip This House" and former football pro is also a reasonably new addition to the growing list of real estate investing gurus. From flipping footballs to flipping houses - neat!

Whereas he is relatively new on the scene, we do not find many issues with them at this point. But it is important to note that he uses the same "medicine show" scam strategy used by many of the other gurus like Armando Montelongo. In such a strategy, they hook you with a free, or low cost teaser that is designed to whet your appetite and convince you that you, too, can pocket a bundle of cash if only you will plunk down your own bundle of cash so they can teach you how. But they rarely do much in the teaching arena once they have your money. That is where it falls apart. As we have pointed out before, seminars and boot camps are designed for selling, not teaching.

A quick check with the Better Business Bureau shows Fortune Builders currently has an "A" rating, which is quite good for real estate gurus, but not the best, which is a title held by Bill Vaughn (IntelliBiz) with an "A+". Still, it appears pretty good - but only after the BBB got them to clean up their marketing hype to reflect reality. And the fact that he tries to resolve complaints is a big plus for Than Merrill.

As of this writing, the only real issue we have with Than Merrill and Fortune Builders is the exhorbitant cost that is so typical of most gurus (the exception again being Bill Vaughn). No training in real estate investing is worthy of the prices most of these gurus charge - thousands, and tens of thousands of dollars. Bill Vaughn's course is the only one that rates more than 4 stars, and it costs less than $100, including coaching by real investors.

A Low Cost, More Effective Choice

If you want to learn all 22 methods of real estate investing, and you think you would like access to a free coach who has at least 20 years field experience in real estate investing, and if you want to save a ton of money, then check out the course that beats them all, combined. With an "A" rating at the Better Business Bureau, and offered by a non-profit to keep it affordable (under $100), "The Simple Man's Guide to Real Estate" by Bill Vaughn is the most comprehensive and effective of all the courses available today. It doesn't cost anything to look...
