Where to Get the Money Now
with Jay Conner

Jay ConnerWe are excited to announce that real estate and private money expert Jay Conner is our keynote speaker for May. Jay will teach you “Where to Get the Money Now” to fund all of your real estate deals. He will teach you how he has built his buying and selling houses business into a seven figure income in less than 2 years on automatic using a simple, step-by-step system (that anyone can duplicate) which enabled him to raise $2,150,000 in less than 90 Days.

Jay is going to share the knowledge he’s acquired while creating a 7-Figure annual income in his own Real Estate Business with you! Jay’s specialty is acquiring Private Money for his renovation projects. And whether you know it or not, the difference between the rich and the “just getting by” into today’s Real Estate World…is Private Money.

A large part of Jay’s business is based on people putting up the money to make a loan so he can buy a property cheap and take advantage of the bank-owned real estate bonanza that’s going on out there right now. Jay always gets a big check when he buys a property and doesn’t even make monthly payments on his loans!

If you’re remotely interested in transforming your Real Estate Career from a frustrating hobby to a thriving 6-Figure business that churns out thousands of dollars in passive income month after month, this may be the most important meeting you attend all year!

Join us at the meeting and Jay will teach you how to:

  1. Never miss out on a deal because you don’t have the money to fund it
  2. Step-by-step, how Jay raised $2,150,000 in 90 days
  3. Get an unlimited amount of funds for your deals
  4. Tap into Jay’s Private Lender Data Feed of over 8000 private lenders who are waiting to fund your deals
  5. Get 2 big checks every time you close a deal… one when you buy and one when you sell

FREE BONUSES JUST FOR ATTENDING: Jay will be giving away several bonuses for all those who attend:

Jay Conner' BookFree Gift #1: Jay’s National Best-Selling Book – “The New Masters of Real Estate: Getting Deals Done in the New Economy”: This book, packed with quality content, shows you how Jay built his house buying and selling business to a 7-Figure Income in less than 2 years on how he now runs it on autopilot!

Jay Conner' CDFree Gift #2: “The 5 Myths About Private Lending-Exposed!” CD: On this CD, Jay not only reveals 5 myths about private lending, but he will also tell you the amazing discovery he made that helped him raise $2,150,000 in private funds in less than 90 Days!

Jay Conner' VaultFree Gift #3: Jay Conner’s Secret “Unlock the Vault” Resource: Discover how to find Existing Private Lenders right in your local area who are ready and willing to fund your deals regardless of your credit or experience!

Are you interested in finding wholesale deals at will? Do you have all the deals you can buy and sell? Are you interested in finding hot deals no one else can? If so, then you need to be at the Atlanta REIA Meeting on the 7th where I will be the guest speaker.

My name is Rock Shukoor and marketing has become one of my strong suits and I am very proud of the results I have produced over the years from most of my campaigns. At the Atlanta REIA Meeting, I will be showcasing my guerrilla marketing skills and show you how to find at least one deal a day. 

Yes, that’s right, I said ONE deal per day! I will show you at least 7 ways to find 7 great deals in 7 days and sell them to cash buyers who are always on the lookout for new deals. Your job is to find great deals well below market value and find a cash buyer to purchase them from you for a little more.

When you get good at finding great deals, finding cash buyers will be the easy part since we are now moving into a seller’s market. There are more cash buyers now than there have been in the past few years. The hedge fund companies are buying everything they can get their hands on and are helping create inventory shortage. Local investors and out of state investors that are looking for properties in the metro Atlanta area are not able to find enough great deals because all the low hanging fruit is being bought up quickly. This is where your marketing knowledge comes into play. Read More→

This month I decided to share with you my thoughts about some types of property you may want to avoid if you plan to maximize your profits from the deals you do. I have personally bought several of the houses I now recommend you think about not buying. I believe buying any of the following properties will definitely give you a financial seminar you really don’t want to take for numerous reasons.

I have taken a few of those financial seminars and I can tell you that you don’t want nor need to go there and make the same mistakes I have made. For those just getting started in the business these examples are a must for you to know so you don’t buy houses that will be extremely hard to sell or rent.

This is a two part article for April and May. 

Houses in Area’s with Many “FOR RENT” signs.

Any house located in an area with many For Rent signs leaves little hope of selling to a family who wants to live in that area and can qualify for a loan. Too many renters in any neighborhood will many times run out the families with small children who can qualify for a loan that want to buy. Read More→

Be A Pro

Posted on April 4, 2014 by

I know when folks are getting started in real estate investing it’s easy to treat it like it’s a hobby. And it might be for some – especially if you have another career and investing is a side business. But with Wholesaling, you need to treat it like a job and a business, because it is.

Buying rental real estate is a great way to earn passive income and we should all strive to earn as much passive income as possible in our lives. But there is nothing passive about Wholesaling. It’s work and that work needs to be taken seriously. That’s why you need to be a “Pro” when it comes to your Wholesaling business, or else it probably won’t work out for you.

A “Pro” or Professional does the work and takes it seriously. And more than likely a “Pro” is consumed by striving to be successful. To use a football analogy, think about Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, those guys are “Pros”. They are consumed by winning and being the best. They wake up and eat, drink, and sleep football. They game plan meticulously with their coaches and teammates. They watch game film. They practice their plays, over and over and over. They are focused on learning and getting better. They are role models and leaders for their teammates because they are usually the hardest working guys on the team. They put in the time it takes to be a “Pro”. Would you agree? Hopefully you know who Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are. Read More→

Follow Up – Part 1

Posted on April 4, 2014 by

Last month we discussed presenting offers. This month, we’ll talk about the next step which is follow up; the fourth in our five steps to success. There are actually three times when you’re going to need to follow up so we’ll discuss each one.

The first is when you’re dealing with a prospect after you prescreen them, which means, that it’s a yes on the property information sheet yet we’re not ready to complete a deal today. This means this prospect should be followed up on because a lot of these will be converted to deals at a later date if you do the follow up, which I will confess, most won’t.

The second type of follow up you’re going to need is on the hot prospects where they say yes now and now you’ve got a few things you’ve got to get done to get it under contract.

The third type of follow up is the follow up after you get them under contract. Follow up is such a neglected portion of the steps that are required to make money in any business. If you will master this, you’ll make a lot of money where a lot of folks won’t and you’ll find the deals that you do get will go better because you took care of the details along the way. A small detail left out can create a large problem, and has many times prior. Honestly, most people have no system whatsoever to do the follow up; they rely too much on memory and therefore issues come up that really could have easily been avoided. Read More→
