"WILL THIS WORK…?"
Frequently Asked Questions about REITMethod.
HI, IT’S CF LIEU. I’ve answered your most frequently asked questions here. Not BS ones like “How can I pay you more money NOW???” but real, nuanced questions about whether REITMethod is right for you. I’ve pledged to always be honest with you, and I’ll tell you whether this course is right for you or not.
Click a question below to expand the answer:
You do not need to know about investing or REIT to join REITMethod. We’ll show you exactly how to start from zero. Then, we’ll take you through the process to learn about the concepts, conduct your own analysis and start investing. You’ll feel empowered and confident to start your own REIT investing journey at the end of the course.
This is the only self-paced course that has been around since 2012, with over 600 students and counting. It is the only online REIT investing course that covers the entire spectrum of REIT investing, and updated regularly with insider information. You get the 8 hours+ tutorial videos, the lecture slides, the spreadsheets with formulas and ongoing support — all included in the course and yours FOR LIFE.
You’ve seen the testimonials and case studies of other REITMethod students. You’ve seen the details of the program on this page. And you may have read my material for years, or seen me on major publications. You have enough information to decide. Now it’s up to you. I encourage you to look inside and decide if this is right for you. It’s natural to have doubts. We all do — the invisible scripts around starting something online are so deep, they often hold us stagnant for years. If REITMethod truly isn’t for you, don’t join. We’ll part as friends with no hard feelings, and I’ll continue sending you my free emails. But if you’re ready start investing safely with consistent & profitable income stream, REITMethod can help.
We tested REITMethod with people of different ages, locations, niches, and skill levels. Age makes no difference in learning about REIT investing. And we'll show you how to start generating passive recurring income from REITs even if you have big commitments like a family or a full-time job.
Yes! If you are in the Pro or Elite level, I will personally do 1-1 consultation session with you. You will get a personalized email from me, which reminds you to schedule the consultation session. Don't worry, it never expires.
I can’t promise you specific return in a specific timeframe. Nobody can. And you shouldn’t trust anyone who does. Here’s why: We all begin at different levels of sophistication, experience, and skill. And REIT counters do fluctuate like stocks. If you’re deliberate, methodical, and take action, you will see results in as fast as 3 to 6 months. Why? Because REIT MUST declare dividends to investors either quarterly or half yearly. And looking back, 1-2 years from now, the amount of time you invested will pale in comparison to the recurring dividends you’re accruing from holding an investment portfolio in REIT— just like with my first dividends from AmFirst REIT in 2012.
No, and please don’t join REITMethod. I’m not looking for people who need quick money, because when you’re in dire financial straits, you necessarily make short-term decisions. REITMethod is about focusing on the long term. If you’re in financial trouble, I recommend you get my book from the library, focus on getting a solid job, and come back here when you’re more financially comfortable.
Mental barriers and doubts
Don't worry — all of my courses come with lifetime access so you can take a break from the material if you’re out of town, on vacation, or just swamped for a few days. Interruptions happen, and your REITMethod course will ALWAYS be here for you when you're ready.
Yes, REITMethod will help you. We tested it with people from Singapore and Australia until they found success (see REITMethod student Jacky Feng from Singapore for just one example). Content are accessible as long as you have a reasonably fast Internet connection, so you can watch it at your convenience.
If you think this program is too expensive then you're probably thinking of this in terms of "training" or "information" and not in terms of what this will actually do for you and your family.
You purchase this program for the results that it will get you, not the videos and information inside of it. You might think that it is expensive for a 4-week online course or some "information". But is it too expensive for the knowledge of being profitable + not losing money in investing - which lasts for a lifetime?
Believe us - in the stock-market, it is 100x easier to lose money than to make money if you don't have proper investment knowledge. Even a veteran stocks investor will lose money every now and then, that's a fact, but a veteran always ensures his wins are much more than his losses.
Also - Imagine this, if you just do 'luck-investing' in stock market, you can be lucky to gain 30%, 30% in the first 2 years, and lose 30% in the 3rd year. You will still have lesser than a person who did 10% for 3 consecutive years.
A college education costs RM 35,000 on average and it takes 3-5 years to complete. And for what? A piece of paper and skills that were outdated 15 years ago?
Most MBA programs cost RM 100,000 or more and many investing courses cost upwards of RM 4,000 - RM 10,000.
And guess what? None of these can guarantee any results (in fact, no investment courses can), none of them guarantee your purchase and most of them are expensive because of the overhead costs involved - like a physical venue rental, instructor's travel/accommodation, support staff, etc.
Our program is laser focused. We strip away all unnecessary stuff like venue rental, instructor's travel/accommodation and don't teach any "fluff", there's no politics or niceties, we get straight down to business.
What you are paying for here is a shortcut.
I paid 'tuition fees' a lot more than anything I charge in this program. I paid them throughout market cycles - underwent all the good times and adversities. In this online program, you get to download my brain and learn from my mistakes.
Many people think they should learn from success stories but the truth is, a person's success is often times a combination of unique factors which you will not be able to duplicate because you are not the very same person. You are a unique person with your own unique circumstances.
However, you can learn a lot more from other people mistakes and NEVER make it on your own.
A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether.
That's the REAL COST of this information, that's what it cost me to get to where I am today. This program give you the shortcut so that you don't need to go through that for yourself. You choose... to be a smart man or a wise man/woman.
We call this “Special Snowflake Syndrome,” where we believe something in our lives is so unique, nothing will ever help. At some point, you’re looking for an excuse not to join. My goal is to show you that is not true, that it's just a crippling excuse. We tested this material with students, man/woman with no prior investing experience, experienced investors, businessman, engineers, medical professionals and yes, even people who are non-Malaysians. If you truly believe you are so unique that 5+ years of the most comprehensive material on starting in REIT investing ever assembled will not help you, please don’t join!
Is REITMethod right for me?
REITMethod can inject new perspectives on how to generate the same nature of passive rental income from a portfolio portfolio, but with some major differences. The key here is to be open to changing your mindset and to complement/diversify your rental income. We teach you exactly how to do this, but you must have an open mind. If you’re not ready to accept new ideas by investing in REITs, please do not join.
Yes, but you will probably have to completely change the way you think capital gain and dividends. Having a REIT portfolio helps in getting consistent (and likely growing) dividend me in a flat market and generating increasing yield during market downturn. In fact, it will actually complement your stocks investing nicely.
Do you expect us to say "YES!" because we want to earn your money?
No. And hopefully this proves that we are being honest and transparent to you.
Because, honestly you are not going to learn much of what you don't already know from this course. This course is for beginner to intermediate level stocks investor.
However, this is what we noticed over the years. Many veteran stocks investor still joined the program because being veteran does not mean you CANNOT lose money investing in stock market.
The truly veteran investor realizes there is always room for improvement to engage with other veteran investors. They want to check if there are any "blind spots". And they are constantly looking for "that edge" to sharpen themselves.
If now “isn’t a good time,” understand one thing: it’s NEVER going to feel like the right time. It’s never the right time to get married. Never the right time to have kids. Or move across the country. Or start investing. We can dream about that magical day when the stars align, but that day isn’t coming.
At a certain point you have to stop waiting and make things happen for yourself. Now to answer your question, I don’t know when the course will open again. At least a few months, maybe longer. The best time to get started is yesterday, the second best time? Today. REITMethod comes with lifetime access (although I expect you to finish learning everyting covered in 4 weeks) so if you have to take a break, the course will be waiting for you when you're ready again. But only if you make the leap and get started.
How REITMethod course works?
REITMethod is an online, 4-week video course. I'll email you every now and then (usually monthly) with new lessons and bonus materials. One important thing: Don't worry about falling behind. You have lifetime access to this material, so if you need to take a break, that's no problem — you can "resume" the material any time you want.
When you join this online course, you get instant access to the following:
ONLINE LECTURES/TRAINING MODULES: You get login credentials to the online course which contains all the lessons. The lessons are provided via pre-recorded videos and PDF/Excel files which you can download. You get lifetime access to this.
UNLIMITED COACHING INSIDE THE MEMBER'S ONLY AREA: You get access to me virtually where I will be available to answer all your questions in the members' only area. This is an invaluable resource to have even if you only join as a Basic member. For Pro and Elite member, you get 1on1 consultation via Skype call with me to further accelerate your results. Other programs just provide information - we provide information, community and direct instructor coaching for 4 weeks.
CF Lieu personally answers all your questions in the comments section below the lecture/lessons which you have trouble with.
This is NOT a live, in-person presentation, so you can get started immediately. That also means you don’t have to spend money to attend an event, take time away from your family, and come back home with a notepad full of “to-dos.” REITMethod lets you complete this material from the comfort of your own home, at your own pace. And since all videos & lectures are transcribed and downloadable in multiple formats, you can even learn during your commute. The course comes with lifetime access, so the strategies, tactics, and scripts in this course will always be available whenever you need them.
You're busy, we get It! That's why the online program is taught through pre-recorded videos and PDF files which are all available online 24/7/365.
It doesn't matter if you get married, go on a one month vacation or miss a training class. All of the information is available in the content portal and you can access it at any time. You get full lifetime access to this training so you will never "fall behind" or miss out on anything. We got you covered!
You can start this program the moment you sign up. When you click the buy button you will be in the portal within 30 seconds and have access to all the training. You can start tonight and be taking action first thing tomorrow. The best time to start is always now.
1-2 hours per week. The more time you put in, the faster you’ll see results. You can probably complete the course in one go, in 1-2 days if you devote your time fully. Because REITMethod comes with a lifetime access, you can go faster or slower if you want.
Yes, all access level including the Basic level will grant access to the full course content.
(note: not applicable for Lite membership level)
The access to the full course content is for lifetime - it never expires.
Payment wise, you have an option of 5 months installment of RM 99/month via Paypal/Credit Card, or a 1 time payment of RM 485, where you get an immediate rebate of RM 10 compared to the installment payments (99 x 5 = 495)
Yes, since the Basic level also grant access to the full course content, you can ask whatever questions you have inside the password-protected membership site.
If you want to spread your payment for Basic level access into 5 months, the only way to do this is by using Paypal, which will bill your credit card associated with your Paypal account. Please register for a Paypal account here if you don't have already.
If are paying using online banking (and get RM 10 rebate by doing so), you need to pay in full.
Yes, absolutely. Please refer to more details on how to do this inside the membership site once you are a member.
The fundamentals to invest in overseas REITs are similar although in the course, examples are given in M'sian context.
CF Lieu is managing clients' investments offshore M'sia in REITs so if you do engage him for 1on1, he will be able to share more on this area.
After you've get started in MREITs and get to know about overseas REITs, you'll surely find offshore REITs offers more opportunities than being confined to MREITs.
CF Lieu would only schedule to conduct 1on1 session after 30 days actually.
Primary reason being, new member should have sufficient time to go thru the course basics, and to prevent member from 'wasting' the 1on1 by asking questions which is already covered in the course.
We advise member to reserve the 1on1 session for advanced Q&A session (ie - offshore REIT questions, understanding how REIT portfolio mgmt works outside M'sia)...
Secondary reason is so that there's no complications on both parties ie - like the scenario you just mentioned.
If you are in Penang, both will be face-to-face session by CF Lieu, instead of Skype. More value for you.
Only the Elite level, CF will tailor made a income-focused retirement cash flow road map for you taking into account your needs and goals. The other does not, only focused on 1on1 Q&A session.
Yes there is....if you look below the pricing table you see - "Get CASH REBATE when you pay via online banking! CLICK HERE for Details & Instructions to pay via online banking"
Click to Expand that, you will see - "PAY for XXX LEVEL: RM XXX (after RM xx cash rebate)"
Sorry, no discounts. I give away 98% of my material free at HowToFinanceMoney.com, and my premium courses are too valuable to discount. If REITMethod is a financial strain for you, please don't join now, and come back later when you can comfortably afford it.
No. This is a system to invest in REITs, not a series of unconnected tips or tactics.
Truthfully... You might think that you have a problem with 1 thing only but we can tell you from experience that's never the case! You don't know what you don't know and if you're not successful you're missing more than you think. It's never just one thing that makes or breaks any investing process - its a collection of all things executed the correct way all in harmony together.
The program will not be split up (with the exception of the Lite level membership).
Not now not ever and even if you offered us RM 500 for 1 module only we wouldn't budge.
The answer is no and if you're not committed enough to do the whole thing please find another course to help you.
I stand by this course with a 100% money-back guarantee, no questions asked, within the first 30 days. Try the entire course and decide if it’s right for you. However — and this is important — only join if you intend to follow the action steps. This course is not simply to consume information. It’s designed for you to take action. I have to set the expectations as such - just like any stuff in life, you don't get results by not taking action. Knowledge is NOT power, application of knowledge is power.
When you join the online course you are 100% covered, safe and protected by our money back guarantee. Here's how it works:
If for some strange reason this program does not work for you and you do get much value from it, we will give you a FULL refund of the entire purchase price immediately and cancel your access to the entire training program.
Simple as that. There is absolutely no possible way you can loose by joining the program other than by not trying it out. If you join and buy a profitable REIT counter in 4 weeks - you win. If you join and don't take any immediate action after 4 weeks, you still learn tremendously in REIT investing and hence can be applied in your future investing endeavor.
BUT... If you don't join the program you don't get anything and life will remain exactly as it is right now without giving it a shot and having a go - that's risk due to inaction, that's losing out and that's what you do if you do not take action and enroll in the program today.
What are the conditions for the guarantee? Very simple: We require you to inform us for a refund within 30 days from the date of purchase, no questions asked WHY to justify for the refund. Those are the terms plain and simple and they are very fair. We uphold our guarantee obligations and you can rest assured that your purchase is 100% risk free. Like we said... The only way you can possibly lose is by not trying this out.
If you still does not trust our 30 days guarantee, this will help. Paypal has a strict policy on refund and good buyer protection. This means once buyer like you initiated a dispute case, the money paid to us will be held back by Paypal for review. If it is proven that we 'cheated' you in anyway, we will be penalized by Paypal and the money will be fully refunded to you. As you can see, the risk is on the seller not the buyer when it comes to Paypal payment.
In the video below, we even want to show you how you can initiate a dispute case in Paypal. We hope this give you much transparency on the payment process.
