I'm eager to share the knowledge I've gained over the years in what might be the best teaching vehicle yet-online education

The recently opened PEI University has just released a free online, IACET-accredited course, Real Profit$™ in Real Estate. Based on Carleton H. Sheets' best-selling No Down Payment® program, this course shows real estate investment professionals and beginners alike how to invest and capitalize on current market trends.

The interactive course covers 19 different creative real estate investing strategies including those that focus on how to take advantage of the current upward trend in foreclosures and distressed properties. Tips from the experts at PEI University include:

•Don't get emotionally involved with an investment property or buy something just because you can. Investing is and always has been a numbers game where you make your money when you buy.
•Lenders do not foreclose to make money; they foreclose to limit their losses. If you are falling behind on your mortgage payment, be proactive and contact your lender before they contact you to discuss your options.
•A homeowner and investor can work together with the lender to pursue a "short sale" strategy, which could yield substantial savings for the investor and the lender, and keep a foreclosure off the homeowner's credit report. Win-win-win.

The Real Profit$ in Real Estate course, available at was developed by the Professional Education Institute® (PEI) and Carleton H. Sheets, a nationally known real estate investor, author, and advisor. The online course is the first accredited online real estate program available to both investors and homeowners absolutely free.

"I'm eager to share the knowledge I've gained over the years in what might be the best teaching vehicle yet-online education," said Mr. Sheets. "PEI University is an outstanding tool in attaining financial freedom and the timing couldn't be better."

"I've always been interested in learning how to invest in real estate, but didn't find the available resources to meet my needs," said Linda Pratt, a registered user at PEI University. "With PEI University, I'm able to work my online education any time, and keep current with changing market dynamics-all without cost."
