The New Paradigm of Real Estate Investing Success
How You Can Double, Triple or Quadruple Your Real Estate Success in 2015 with Roger Salam

“In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.” ~ Eric Hoffer

The above quote by Eric Hoffer is a profound one. If you’re not changing with the changing times, you’ll disappear like the dinosaurs of the past. It’s no secret that Real Estate is bouncing back quite strong in many areas of the country and if you’d like to get back into it or if you’re an active Real Estate investor now, we’d like to invite you to find out how the game has changed. Without this knowledge you’ll become Real Estate Dinosaurs.

Roger will not only show you how the real estate game has changed, he’ll also give you the new rules of the game. Roger says, “Not only the paradigm of Real Estate investing has shifted, but the entire paradigm on success has changed.” Perhaps you’ve noticed, but don’t know how to adapt and change with the new shift and the new game.

Join us December 1st and Roger will show you:

  • The single most important philosophical change that will make immediate and the biggest difference in your Real Estate investing business
  • 5 New paradigms of success not only in Real Estate investing, but in life
  • How To Make Your First $5k In Two Weeks

Measuring Your Money
Before You Buy

with Barry Garner

Barry GarnerCome join us at the Peachtree City EPIC Group on Tuesday, November 25th at 6:30PM at Green Ginger Asian Fusion Restaurant located at 200 Market Place Connector in Peachtree City, GA where Barry Garner of Solutions Realty Network will be give you a clear understanding of cap rates and returns on investment and how they are calculated and used.

Real estate investment professionals use a number of financial formulas such as cap rates and ROI to make sound investment decisions. Cap Rate is a real estate valuation measure used to compare different real estate investments. Although there are many variations, a cap rate is often calculated as the ratio between the net operating income produced by an asset and the original capital cost (the price paid to buy the asset) or alternatively its current market value. In short, capitalization rates are an indirect measure of how fast an investment will pay for itself.

At the EPIC Meeting you will learn:

  • The difference between cap rate and cash on cash return
  • How to calculate the “cap rate”
  • Should investors use cap rate on small multiplex investments like duplexes and single family homes?
  • Are cap rates different in other markets?
  • All this and much, much more.

Barry Garner is a real estate investor and a Realtor. He has been actively involved in the Atlanta real estate market for the past 5 years and has been a part of over 200 real estate transactions.

Your Career in
Real Estate Investing

with Kim Cook, Dorsie Boddiford, Leslie Mathis & Regina Sitterley

All Members & Guests Must RSVP Online to Attend
Members Attend for FREE and Guests for $15 Online or Pay $20 at the Door.
Guests can join Atlanta REIA for Only $100/year and Attend for FREE!

Dorsie Boddiford, Kim Cook, Regina Sitterley & Leslie Mathis

As a new real estate investor, you might not realize it yet, but you will go through three distinct stages of your real estate investing career if you stick it out to the very end.

There is the beginner stage when you need cash now like you need oxygen to breath. Next is the intermediate stage when you start to build your cash flow and residual income and really start to crank things up. And finally there is the final stage when you become an “Ender” and are able to retire and comfortably live off your investments. Each of these stages require different amounts of time, energy, resources and education to master.

Join us at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on Monday, November 17th, at 6:00PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs where you will hear from four dynamic, successful investors in the different stages of their investing career. Dorsie Boddiford, Kim Cook, Regina Sitterley and Leslie Mathis will share with you their history, their goals, and give you insights on how to be successful during each stage. This is your opportunity to hear from investors you don’t normally get to hear from in this format who truly have valuable first hand insights into the different stages of their investing careers. You will be able to ask them questions about the challenges they have faced and have succeeded.

Many new investors may not realize that over the time of their investing life, they will move through various stages of their career. There is the beginning investor (or newbie), the intermediate, and the mature investor. Each of these stages require different mindsets and goals.

Meets Tuesday, November 18th at NOON
2010 Delphine Drive, Decatur, GA 30032

2010 Delphine Drive, Decatur, GA 30032This month, on Tuesday, November 18th at NOON, the Onsite Group will again meet at 2010 Delphine Drive, Decatur, GA 30032 which is a property that Craftbuilt just purchased a few months ago. In August we saw the house before any work had been done to it and heard about the plans to bring it back to life. In September, the sheetrock had all been gutted out and the new walls were framed. 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. We also learned in September that a variance was required before we could proceed with the project. There are hurdles and pitfalls in getting projects permitted and every municipality has their own rules. Aaron has extensive experience with permit issues and will answer questions from the group about the permitting process. Our variance has now been approved. Join us and hear what is involved in getting a variance and the reasons for the requirement.

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.
