  • Creative Techniques such as Wrap Around Mortgages, Sandwich Lease Options, Subject-To, Seller Financing, and more
  • How to be a transaction engineer.

  • And so much more…

Watch Workshop Replay 24/7
Nothing But Paperwork
How To Properly Complete Real Estate Investor Contracts & Paperwork
A Full Day Workshop with Don DeRosa Recorded Live on June 3rd, 2016
After Purchase, Watch Replay 24/7 Below…

Don DeRosaAre you ready to take the fear out of doing the paperwork to complete a real estate transaction? Do real estate contracts and paperwork scare the daylights out of you? Do you wish you had a better understanding of how to fill out all the paperwork that comes with being a real estate investor for each and every deal you do? We have the solution to your problem!

During this live workshop recorded on Friday, June 3rd, 2016, we will teach you how to be a paper pushing real estate pro. We are going to show you how fill out all the paperwork that you use on a daily basis to become a real estate investor and more importantly, a “transaction engineer”.

Paperwork like:

  • Purchase and Sale Agreements
  • Authorization to Release Information
  • Power of Attorney
  • Land Trusts
  • Beneficial Interest
  • Appointment of Trustee
  • Assignments
  • Leases
  • Options
  • Disclosures
  • And many other documents that you will use on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis depending on the kinds of deals your doing.

Here are some things that you will learn:

  • How to fill out all the documents needed to protect yourself from potential legal issues
  • How to explain each paragraph to your sellers, your lenders, and even your buyers so everyone is informed and comfortable with the paperwork
  • How to write in the financing terms – the payment structure, who’s paying closing cost, who’s doing the home inspections, what the closing dates are, and who is the closing attorney
  • What steps need to be taken when someone defaults on an agreement
  • What paperwork needs to be notarized
  • What paperwork needs to be filed at the courthouse and what paperwork is private that nobody sees
  • What kind of disclosures you have to offer, such as:
    • Seller Disclosures
    • Lead-based paint
    • Asbestos
    • Radon
    • Agency disclosures

We are also going to show you how to take all of these mounds of required paperwork that you will use on a daily, weekly, and/or monthly basis and put it all in the palm of your hands! We will show you how to make the mounds of paperwork into electronic files that can be filled out within seconds versus minutes, hours, or in some cases, days.

We are also going to share with you the 8 things that could blow up your real estate transaction if you are not careful:

  • The seller doesn’t have the authority to sell
  • The purchase and sale agreement is signed improperly
  • The purchase and sale agreement has the wrong or in adequate legal description
  • Earnest money is handled improperly
  • Allowing the seller to stay in the property after closing without the right possession agreement
  • Failure to indicate clearly what the seller gets and what the buyer gets so that everyone understands
  • Failure to get all of the initials and signatures to make it a valid sale
  • Failing to give proper disclosures
  • Not allowing yourself enough special stipulations or out clauses to protect you from losing your earnest money

If you want to take the fear out of filling out contracts and completing the paperwork properly and want to organize and systematize your real estate documents, this is a one day training event you don’t want to miss! We hope you will join us!

Have you ever wondered how successful investors are continually finding and doing profitable deal after deal?

Join us on the webinar and Larry will teach you 6 secrets of how successful investors think through every deal they do and how they structure offers in multiple ways to buy any property. He will also show you why “CASH” isn’t always the best solution for every seller and why they may not want All CASH for their property.

Get Started Finding Deals…
No Bull!
with Leslie Mathis

Guests Pay $15 Online or $20 at the Door. RSVP Now!

Leslie MathisCome join us at BIG on Monday, July 18th at 6:30PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, and learn ho to get started finding deal for your real estate investing business with special guest speaker Leslie Mathis.

So you’re new to real estate and want to get started on the right track. What do you need to do to make that happen? My name is Leslie Mathis, aka The Ca$h Cowgirl. When I first started my real estate career, I didn’t know anything else to do but to find a house through a realtor that needed work, put it under contract, go get a bank loan so I could close on it, then rehab it myself to get it ready to go back on the market for sale. That’s exactly what I did, and that first house flip went pretty well. It took about 3 months to complete the process, and we profited around $30,000.

RSVP Now!

Atlanta REIA Members Please RSVP on Meetup.com
Atlanta REIA Members Please RSVP on Meetup.com

With that first deal, I caught the real estate bug. I was hooked. I was ready to do another fix and flip. Then I quickly realized that those deals aren’t always readily on the market for me to just go pick another on up when I got ready to flip another house. I had to find another way to get more properties to buy and sell, and I needed more ways to buy and sell them. I became increasingly curious about what successful real estate investors were doing and how they were doing it. So I started surrounding myself with their influence and knowledge. I didn’t realize there was so much more to learn. Back then, I simply didn’t know what I didn’t know!

What I’m going to share with you this month at BIG is what I did, and continue to do to be successful in my real estate investing business. I invite you to join me on Monday, July 18th at 6:30PM as I share vital information you need to know to kick off your real estate investing. I’ll be covering things like:

  • NO and LOW COST ways to market to get leads
  • How to tell if a lead is a good deal or not
  • Where to find the good deals
  • How to talk with sellers
  • What to do to position yourself for success
  • And more!

Marketing for leads and finding deals in real estate isn’t so much hard as it is different from conventional thinking. Plan on joining us on Monday, July 18th, bring a friend or family members with you, keep an open mind, and be prepared to take lots of notes. This is one evening you don’t want to miss. See you there!

RSVP NOW! Seating is limited!

Movers, Shakers & Deal Makers

Movers, Shakers and Deal Makers (MSDM) is a BRAND NEW Atlanta REIA networking, deal making, vendor trade show and educational subgroup whose purpose is to provide an open forum for real estate investors and industry professionals to network, exchange information and ideas, have direct access to hot, off market real estate opportunities and to make deals happen!

Our first MSDM Meeting will be on Monday, Oct. 10th at 6:30PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs. Atlanta REIA Members and Guests who RSVP on Meetup.com can attend at No Charge! Atlanta REIA Gold Business Members can RSVP for a Vendor Table at No Charge as well.

MSDM is all about networking, transacting, learning something new and doing deals. You will have the opportunity to pitch your properties, products and services; voice your real estate haves & wants; and participate in open discussions of real estate questions, concerns and transactions.

MSDM is really 3 Meetings in one, all happening simultaneously!

  1. Barry BeersVendor Trade Show & Networking – The Vendor Tradeshow, being led by Barry Beers, will be for networking with local real estate professionals and building your dream team. High Top cocktail table and booths are available for vendors who RSVP on a first come, first serve basis. Talk to Barry for details.
  2. Joe ThompsonHaves & Wants – There will be a full length Haves & Wants and Question and Answers session with Joe Thompson and all who attend. Be sure to bring your property lists and your property flyers, so we can put them up on the big screens. Also be sure to bring lots of business cards to circulate and make many new real estate connections.
  3. Don DeRosaDeal Makers Bar – This deal making session, led Don DeRosa and Lynn Overall, along with local, active real estate investors, will be for getting together and transacting with other fellow real estate investors.
