Let me ask you:

  • Are you concerned about staying in compliance with SEC regulations (hint: if you use private money to fund your real estate deals you should be)?
  • Are you finding yourself spending more and more time surfing the ‘Net, studying books and speaking to other investors about various SEC rules and whether or not they apply to you?

If so, I have two things to say to you:

  1. You are not alone
  2. And you’ve definitely come to the right place

Hello, my name is Alan Cowgill and as a national speaker, author and real estate entrepreneur, I am regularly approached by confused real estate investors seeking guidance on SEC regulations.In fact, when I was first starting out as a speaker this happened so much that I decided to go to the other speakers that I usually appeared with to get their opinions on how I should be answering these questions. And guess what? They were confused, too. That’s right; I got conflicting answers from many of the top professionals in our field!A great example of the confusion that exists regarding the SEC’s role in private money real estate deals is when my attorney spoke about securities with an attorney in the state of New York recently. Now this particular New York attorney didn’t do securities work and the people in his office didn’t either, so when he started asking around his office about securities he found one colleague who assured him that if someone lends private money to a real estate investor to invest in real estate it is not a security, and as a result, is not regulated at all. But later another attorney in the same office assured him that it was indeed a security and that you couldn’t sell it at all, which of course, left the New York attorney completely confused.See I told you, you are not alone.

What No One Else Ever Tells You About Investing In Real Estate!

The truth is most real estate investors who use private money to fund deals are confused about how the SEC factors into this whole thing.This uncertainty, in turn, can lead to:

  • Stress, anxiety and fear
  • Lost money – from being too afraid to pull the trigger on a profitable real estate deal due to being unsure about whether or not you will be in SEC compliance
  • Wasted time – that could have been spent putting together profitable deals but was instead spent doing research online or in the library on SEC rules and regulations (research that probably will end up with a lot of conflicting information)

So Let Me End Some of Your Uncertainty Right Now – Private Money Real Estate Deals Are a Security & Do Fall Under SEC Rules & Regulations! 

The reality is that when you offer an investment opportunity where you’re in effect managing someone’s money – where they’re lending you the money, you’re borrowing it – it falls under the definition, both federally and in every state, of a security.In a more technical sense, securities laws cover private lending because when someone borrows money from a private lender to invest in real estate, they are offering an interest in their company or a share of the profits in the form of interest on the money borrowed, and that qualifies as a debt security. Securities laws treat this as an “investment contract”, which means that a private lender is lending money that they expect the real estate investor to manage and invest and return to them with the promised interest. Promissory Notes are a security.

Here’s the Bottom Line: 

Gaining an Understanding of the SEC Rules is One of the Most Important Tasks Facing Private Money Real Estate Investors Today!

You see, recognizing the utter confusion that exists among many real estate investors, I decided to hire an attorney to do some research into the matter so that I would be better equipped to answer SEC questions when they inevitably arose.Since I’m not an attorney nor can I provide legal advice I needed help from an SEC attorney.This system is the result of three years of research conducted by my attorney into SEC compliance for real estate investors who use private money. Over the past three years, I have learned a lot on the subject – and let me tell you, a lot of what I learned surprised even me! I don’t want you to go through all the painstaking research that my attorney did … and so you won’t have to waste huge amounts of time struggling to determine which pieces of conflicting information are correct and which are wrong.With my attorney created system, you’ll know exactly what’s right – right away! Then, armed with this handy reference resource, you’ll be able to concentrate your full energies on what you do best – which is find private lenders, arrange profitable deals and make money … lots and lots of money!

Discover the S.E.C.s Dos and Don’ts of Raising Private Money!

Let me tell you a little anecdote: When I was growing up, I went out for the high school football team, and when I went out for the team, the coach spent a lot of time teaching me the fundamentals of the game which are tackling, blocking, catching the ball, throwing the ball, and how to get into the proper stance when you line up at the line of scrimmage.As a real estate investor, these fundamentals are what you do every day to find profitable deals, obtain the necessary funding, etc. To brush up on your fundamentals or if you are weak in one or more of the fundamentals, please see my Private Lending Made Easy – Basic System; Private Lending Made Easy – Premium System; or Private Lending Made Easy – Wealth Management System. Now back in high school, my coach also handed me a rule book, and that rule book said that if you go out of bounds, play stops and if you go ten yards, you get a first down and if you go across the goal line, you get six points. This is what SEC compliance basically is – it’s the rule book for real estate investing with private money.

The program provided me a solid foundation and framework that I could use to grow my current business real estate business and future businesses consistently.
