Atlanta REIA North Meeting
Working with Contractors
& Overcoming Conflicts

with Barry Beers

Barry BeersProblems occurring with investors and their contractors often seems to be an everyday occurrence. Even the most experienced real estate investors run into these problems daily. At the Atlanta REIA North Meeting on Wednesday, September 17th 6:30PM at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, Georgia, Barry Beers will discuss many of these problems and any problems attendees may have had or are having now. From the smallest repairs to the largest remodeling job, conflict is an inherent part of the construction industry that must be overcome.

Barry says… “If you are a homeowner or real estate investor, sooner or later you will need a contractor or repair person. At least 3 out of 4 people who use a contractor will run into a problem. At this meeting you will learn how to prevent 80% of the common problems that occur and of the remaining 20% of the problems you will be better prepared to handle and take legal action if needed.”

Barry has been a real estate investor for over 30+ years and once led a large REIA group back in the 1990′s. He has been a General Business Consultant for over 30+ years and is currently completing his Masters Degree in Conflict Management at Kennesaw State University.

To learn more, come out and join us on Wednesday, September 17th at 6:30PM where you will learn how to work with contractors and how to overcome conflicts as they arise.

Onsite Renovation Group
Meets Tuesday, September 16th at NOON
2010 Delphine Drive, Decatur, GA 30032

2010 Delphine Drive, Decatur, GA 30032This Month, on Tuesday, September 16th at NOON, the Onsite Renovation Group will once again meet at 2010 Delphine Drive, Decatur, GA 30032 which is a property that Craftbuilt purchased recently. Last month we saw the house before any work had been done to it and heard about the plans to bring it back to life. We are now deep into the demolition and framing phase of the work. The plans include adding a bedroom and bath on the front of the house where the porch was. The kitchen is being moved from the front of the house to where previously there was a bedroom. Many of the walls are being relocated for a more open flow throughout the house. Join us and hear what exit strategies will work in the neighborhood and what level of renovation will make sense as related to the after repaired value.

Onsite Renovation GroupThe Onsite Renovation Group, led by Aaron McGinnis of Craftbuilt Properties, is an educational and networking group that focuses on the acquisition, renovation and retail resale (fix and flip) of single family residential homes inside the I-285 perimeter and the in-town neighborhoods. The purpose of this group is to allow both new and experienced rehabbers and investors to meet, network and share knowledge and experience with “hands on” access to real property. The Onsite Renovation Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at NOON at an active renovation site, build site or rental property which will vary from month to month. There is currently no charge to attend these meeting.

Beginning Investors Group
Is It a Deal or No Deal?!?
with Don DeRosa, Russ Hiner, Rock Shukoor, Gordon Catts & Dustin Griffin

Download Lead SheetMany beginning real estate investors are often thwarted by trying to determine if an investment opportunity is a “Deal” or “No Deal”. Some new investors jump on every potential deal that comes along because they are afraid to let one get away. Others can’t seem to “pull the trigger” on a deal because they’re afraid to make a mistake. All new investors face the same challenge: How do you know if you’re looking at a good deal or not?

First of all, what could be a good deal for one investor might not be for another. Establishing your personal buying goals and criteria will help eliminate “No Deals” from your consideration quickly. After that, it’s a matter of knowing how to “size up” a good deal by knowing what to measure and how to calculate your potential profits and expenses.

Don DeRosa, Russ Hiner, Rock Shukoor & Dustin Griffin

On Monday, September 15th at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG), we want you to Bring YOUR LEADS (Download Lead Sheet) where Don DeRosa, Russ Hiner, Rock Shukoor, Gordon Catts & Dustin Griffin will pre-screen and analyze them, construct a few potential offers, and call the Sellers and get you an appointment and/or make deals on the spot (time and noise permitting of course).

The Biggest Real Estate Myth

Posted on September 2, 2014 by

Duncan WiermanWe all think we’re in the real estate business.  That is a fundamental mistake!

It’s true that we have checks written to us in exchange for services of buying and selling houses, so it’s understandable to think we’re in the business of real estate.

When someone at a party asks what we do, we naturally say “I’m in real estate” So when we look at growing our businesses, we look at what we do for the levers. And that’s the mistake.

You’re not in Real Estate!

You’re in the business of “marketing your real estate abilities”

When you really understand this, a whole new world of possibility opens up.

Here is the TRUTH: Read More→

Working Healthy Now

Posted on September 2, 2014 by

The first wealth is health.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fall is in the air. Before you know it, Halloween will be here. Then Thanksgiving. And Christmas, and New Year’s, and Martin Luther King Day. And Valentine’s Day! Oh, my gosh! it’ll be swimsuit season soon, and I’m not ready!

Sometimes it seems like we live life in the future, doesn’t it? It’s fun to think about that vacation coming up next spring, and it can be daunting to think of all there is to do tomorrow. But rewards in the future require action in the present. Nowhere is this more true than when it comes to our health. It’s all about nutrition and exercise, and it’s all about now.

Real estate does have its physical side – anybody who’s ever slithered through a muddy crawl space knows this. But to a large extent, our profession is pretty sedentary. And as technology allows us to do more and more from our computers and smartphones, it gets easier to sit for longer and longer periods.

My Uncle Fergus has turned sitting into an art form. I’ll bet you know somebody just like him: If you were to turn his computer keyboard upside down and shake it, you’d get enough crumbs to coat three chicken thighs. Uncle Fergus can open a beer, grab a handful of Cheezy Wiggles, and write a notice to vacate without so much as turning his head. I’m pretty sure he hasn’t walked to the end of his driveway in at least six months. He tells me he’s going to start eating right and exercising soon. Yep. Just as soon as he feels like it. Technology has given him the ability to be a true man of leisure. Read More→

Knowing When to Move On!

Posted on September 2, 2014 by

There was once a great and powerful king, King BOB. He had everything that a King needed or wanted. King BOB had real estate, cars, money, jewels, wine, and a Queen. One day, a gardener came to offer his services to King’s gardens, so King BOB hired him. The Gardener brought in exotic plants and trees and planted specimens that no one had ever seen. When King BOB gazed upon the palace gardens, his mind was taken to great places of beauty and peace. King BOB, while walking his garden, began to consider new frontiers. His mind often wandered to continents yet unconquered.

Little did King BOB know that he was being challenged by the lowly Gardener. He was being introduced to a new spirituality, new wealth, and new ideas. He began to feel inferior to the challenges the Gardener was presenting. The Gardener, on the other hand, was doing what he felt the land needed. King BOB’s mind was now unsettled; he reconsidered his values, goals, and purpose.

Meanwhile, other leaders were envious that King BOB had such a vast and enchanting garden. This made King BOB feel great and more powerful. He became known as the Great Arborist, the Supreme Real Estate Investor and Entrepreneur. He was no longer just a great leader or counselor; he had reached new heights. Even the Gardener became famous. There were great leaders from all nations who wanted the Gardener’s services. Read More→
