On today’s episode of the Forever Cash Real Estate Investing Podcast, I’m handing over the reins to David Van Ginhoven, a valuable member of our Land Profit Generator team.
He’s passionate about helping those with no experience in real estate transform their lives using our powerful business model. And he does a great job of it.
How David got started in Real Estate Investing
Why does David love helping people with zero real estate investing experience?
Because he was in their shoes a few short years ago. He was driving a FedEx truck, making decent money, but he soon realized he wanted more from life. His first thought was real estate investing with houses until he realized what a saturated market Dallas was (65,000 registered realtors).
He didn’t give up though. He started researching the easiest, fastest, cheapest, safest way to get into real estate, and he came up with LAND.
Land is the primordial essence of real estate, he says. It’s literally the building blocks, the foundation. Thankfully, the foundation is the end product for us. It’s not complicated.
When he started, he had a lot of insecurities and fears. David was scared to talk to sellers. And he felt like they would see him as an impostor because of his lack of experience in real estate investing. David says he knew immediately that, if he was going to commit to land flipping, he needed the right instructions and guidance, and support. And he didn’t want to rely on luck.
David discovered the Land Profit Generator Program and community, and it was exactly what he needed. And now he gets to work with us, being part of the solution for people who want to get out of the rat race.
David’s First Real Estate Investing Deal
David’s very first real estate investing deal was a piece of land in Nevada that he bought for $2000.
He calls it a desert square of nothing. Doing that deal gave him an exponential amount of energy and confidence. It validated that he could do this. “This is the system and the process, and it works,” he says, “and it’s even easier than I thought. It changed my life forever.”
The Land Profit Generator process is simple.
- Doing some research
- Doing marketing
- Onboarding your leads
- Getting deals accepted
- Posting your deals
- Selling your deals
- Rinse and repeat
David believes that your commitment to Real Estate Investing the LPG way determines your success. When he first got started, he says, “I watched as many YouTube videos and podcasts of Jack’s as I could.” And then he jumped right in. When he made mistakes (like a mailer that completely flopped because the data for the county wasn’t up-to-date), he got back up and kept going.
Land Is Here to Stay
David quickly learned that real estate investing using land is here to stay. It’s not a gimmick or a trend. It’s a consistent model that will change your life forever.
People need land. The beautiful thing for us is that not everyone is using it. If someone owns a car, a truck, a boat, a house, and some land, and they need some money, they’re going to sell the land. If they’re not using the land, selling it won’t change their lifestyle. People don’t want to change their lifestyle.
No two real estate investors in the land space are exactly the same. David doesn’t like the steep competition that goes along with bigger deals (some people do). He likes low-priced deals and a lot of volume. Typically, he goes for $5k deals and sells them for $17k or $10k deals he sells for $30k. And he’s been very successful at it.
David loves the passive income of real estate investing with land.
He’ll buy a piece of land for $1000 and sell it for $5000. He takes $1000 on deposit and gets $200/month for the rest. That $200/month is pure cash flow. No more worrying about bills.

He wants to answer your questions, calm your fears, and help you transform your life.
