How is Investors United different from other real estate courses?
Our course is the most comprehensive training program for real estate investing ever developed. We stand behind this statement and we have never been challenged on it. Our Guarantee is unmatched in our industry.
Is Investors United accredited by the Better Business Bureau?
Yes. You can verify our exemplary record here. Maintaining the highest standards of business ethics has always been a part of who we are at Investors United. Our awards, our community service leadership, and our Better Business Bureau rating all simply point out what we believe as an organization – that treating people fairly is the best way to do business.
What is your completion rate?
Our five-year study shows that 91% of Student Members who kept their tuition current graduated. In other words, NINE OUT OF TEN successfully completed our program. Follow Our Guarantee and you’ll earn at least your tuition before you graduate – because we will stand by you until you do.
What are some of the qualifications of Investors United's faculty?
Investors United’s faculty are successful real estate professionals, real-world experts who do what they teach and teach what they do. The IU faculty consists of award-winning business leaders, Fortune 500 senior executives, outstanding entrepreneurs, and professors from the world’s leading educational institutions.
Does your faculty do what they teach and teach what they do...or do they just teach?
Our Faculty follows the belief that teaching is an excellent way to develop new business. Investors know that information changes over time. Teaching at our school allows our Faculty to stay current on industry trends and collaborate with other Members – and with each other – to create profitable partnerships.
Do I have to share my profits with Investors United?
No. Your real estate investing business is yours to run however you wish. Still, partnerships are always available for those who look for them; our name is Investors United for a reason.
Do Investors United Members create competition for each other?
No. With many millions of properties, tax liens, and notes per state, there is no shortage of opportunity. Conventional investors run into competition and end up paying retail because they frequent the same real estate sources. Investors United members choose from dozens of real estate prospecting methods to identify profitable opportunities and avoid competition.
Why should I invest in real estate?
Briefly, the question is not why you should invest in real estate, but when. If you live in America, there is a greater than 90% chance that you either already have or you will buy real estate in your lifetime. When you buy real estate you have invested in it, so it makes sense to have the knowledge to do it properly and profitably. At Investors United, we believe that real estate isn’t just a roof over your head, it is the means to secure your future.

Do I receive college credits from an Investors United course?
No. If you are looking for college credit, then ask yourself what you want to accomplish. Degrees are not an end. People often mistake them for an end when in fact they are a means to an end. Can the same goal be accomplished with money? If so, then the fastest way to achieve your goal is to study how to earn money. At Investors United, we do not prepare people for gainful employment in a recognized profession; we teach people how to earn income through real estate investing. Real estate is not just land or buildings, it is a medium for the generation and preservation of wealth. If that is what you want to learn, then we are the ones who can teach you. Otherwise, go to college – the value of education will be taught to you clearly in the years you will be repaying your student loans.
Does Investors United offer training to become a real estate agent?
Do I have to wait until graduation to begin earning?
Absolutely not. We encourage our Student Members to begin their real estate investment efforts with their first class. As we’ve said before, our method is described by our motto: “Earn while you learn.”®
