Tue, September 1st @ 6:30PM – Golden Corral, Cumming, GA
Mountain REIA
Learn About Home Inspections and How They Can Save You $$$$!
with Special Guest, Rick Harris
September 1st, 6:30PM, Golden Corral, Cumming, GA

Rick HarrisWe are excited to announce that ASHI certified home inspector, Rick Harris, will be our special guest speaker this month at the Mountain REIA monthly meeting. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, September 1st at 6:30PM at the Golden Corral located at 2025 Market Place Blvd, Cumming, GA. Rick will be teaching us all about home inspections and why they are such a critical part of your real estate investing business.

Whenever you are buying a new home either as a rental or to rehab, you will definitely want to have that house examined by a certified home inspector. A home inspector can save you from so many headaches by bringing to light potential problems that you may not have been able to see just by walking through the property. They can also save you a lot of money by helping you more accurately figure your rehab costs prior to purchase so that you can buy smart, and earn a large profit. You could potentially only estimate a $10,000 rehab, but a thorough home inspection may find an additional $15,000 in other repairs you didn’t see during your walk though. That additional $15,000 in repairs will come straight out of your pocket if you don’t factor it in before you make your offer.

You definitely do not want to miss this meeting and learn directly from a certified home inspector what he looks for in houses and how he can save you a lot of money on the front end, before you buy your next investment property. There will be a lot of learning and great networking. Make sure to bring your business cards and deals to discuss.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

George AntoneAtlanta REIA is excited to announce that George Antone, founder of MPactWealth, will be the special guest speaker at our Main Monthly Meeting on Monday, September 14th at 5PM. The meeting will take place at Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA. George will be sharing with us his years of knowledge about being an entrepreneur and investor.

Since the age of 16, George has been involved in business with several of his family’s enterprises. He has become an expert at structuring deals, whether real estate, notes, or any other income-producing transactions. Most investors know how to find the deals, and many even know how to find the funds to close the deal, however, the majority of investors do not structure their deals properly and they leave themselves vulnerable down the road. You definitely don’t want to be that investor. So don’t miss this very important meeting.

At the meeting, George will briefly discuss what he will be going into more depth about at The Wealthy Code Workshop. He will discuss…

  • Mistakes to avoid in order to earn passive income that is consistent and dependable
  • How to evaluate and adjust deal risks and rewards in a way that allows you to make the deal work for you
  • Ways to minimize your risk and and maximize your profits by using different structures for your deals
  • How to achieve the dream of most entrepreneurs of working less, having less stress, and having more money and the freedom to spend your time doing what you love to do
  • And much, much more!

Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn how to structure all of your income producing deals to make you more money. All this is happening at the Atlanta REIA main meeting on Monday, September 14th at 5PM at Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA.

As always, Atlanta REIA Members can attend the event at no charge and Non-Members can Register Online for $20 or pay $25.00 at the door. Be sure to bring your business cards and flyers and join us for an evening of real estate deals, vendors, networking, education and fun! See you there!

Would you like to learn how to structure deals so you can buy houses with little or none of your own cash and none of your own credit? 15 hours a week… That’s all you need! Imagine… taking any seller lead and being able to create a winning deal out of it… Making thousands of dollars where you thought there were none. No more wasted marketing dollars. No more wasted phone calls. No more wasted time.

Don will teach you about the state-of-the-art tools and techniques you’ll use to evaluate deals and figure out how to make them work – so you can work less and spend more time where you want, when you want and with whom you want.

Some topics Don will be teaching about include:

  • Using Apps on your iPad or other mobile device to evaluate deals on the go
  • 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…

Bring your deals and Don will walk through them step-by-step and he’ll show you how to easily evaluate the lead, determine your exit strategy, structure the deal, negotiate with the seller, and get the paperwork done in a snap.

Where do you go to get a lease option buyer or an owner finance buyer qualified to get a conventional mortgage and cash you out?

These same people may be able to qualify in a few years with some help and guidance. Come hear from an expert in this arena as he discusses credit, how it impacts the marginal borrower, and how to resolve their issues. For more than 20 years, Hurdis has been working with lenders and attorneys to help their clients understand and improve their credit issues.

Founded in 1992 and incorporated in 1997, The Barrington Financial Group, Inc is a mortgage consulting company that specializes in assisting banking and mortgage lending institutions with their prospective home buyers who are having difficulty in qualifying for a mortgage. With over 30 years of experience in the banking, mortgage, collection, and credit industry, they have assisted well over 3,000 clients with obtaining their mortgages over the past 23 years.

Don DeRosaDon DeRosa is a part time real estate trainer and mentor and full-time real estate investor who actively buys, sells and holds properties each month for huge profits and long term cash flow. Today Don is working furiously at buying properties “Subject-To” using the existing financing on the seller’s home instead of having to go to a bank or a hard money lender for funding. This allows Don to buy multiple properties fast, without coming up with all the purchase funds on the front end. This is the perfect strategy in today’s market where easy funding is not readily available for investors to buy pretty houses.

Join us on Monday, August 17th at 6:30PM at the Atlanta REIA Beginning Investors Group Meeting at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs and Don will share with you, many of the subject-to strategies, tools and techniques he uses every day to create winning deals for himself as well as his buyers and sellers.

Don will walk you through real world, actual deals, step-by-step to demonstrate how to apply these strategies, tools and techniques. In fact, you can bring your deals, and he’ll show you exactly how to evaluate the lead, determine your exit strategy, structure the deal, negotiate with the seller and get the paperwork done almost instantly and without any of the hard work you normally do to get your deals done.

By the end of the presentation, you’ll know…

  • How to recognize a “Subject To” opportunity and buy with little or no money!
  • How to evaluate any lead and decide whether this is a winner for you and how much money you’ll make before you make your offer
  • How to combine buying strategies and exit strategies – that work right now, in 2015
  • How to structure a deal in less than 10 minutes, so that you make a minimum of $20,000 on it, choosing from multiple purchase and exist strategies
  • How to determine the seller’s hot buttons so you can craft a deal the seller can’t refuse
  • How to use Don’s proprietary tools to negotiate for you, so you never let your emotions talk you into making a bad deal!

Don’t miss out on learning about this great investing strategy you can use to get your real estate business up and going!

We are looking forward to seeing you at the meeting!
