Have you ever heard the expression, “you make all your money in real estate the day you buy?” Well, guess what: at Monday’s meeting, you’ll learn that…

When You Wholesale Real Estate,
You Make Your Money—In Cash—BEFORE You Buy!

Vena Jones-CoxSounds too good to be true, but our guest speaker, Vena Jones-Cox, does it about 40 times a year. Join us, and you’ll learn:

Well, it’s absolutely true, and it means that finding bargain properties is probably THE most important skill any real estate investor ever learns.

If you can consistently find sellers who NEED—not want, NEED– to sell their homes, even if it means that they take pennies on the dollar, you’ll have a life full of great deals and the money that they make. If you can’t find these sellers, you literally can’t make money investing in real estate.

  • How to identify the right properties right in your own back yard that you can wholesale for a $5,000-$10,000 profit in the next 30 days
  • What to offer for these properties, so they sell fast and get you cash BEFORE the closing
  • How to find and groom buyers for your deals      
  • And lots more!

It’s a great topic, a great meeting, and a great presenter, so mark your calendar and plan to attend! We’ll see you there.

BTW, Don’t forget Vena’s Saturday August 8th workshop on Advanced Wholesaling & Marketing Strategies. You can get more information or register at http://atlantareia.com/?p=27947!

Vena Jones-CoxOur mission here at Atlanta REIA is to bring you the very best in down-to-earth, usable, money-making real estate information in the country at each and every meeting. And at our August 3rd meeting, we’ve outdone ourselves!

 See, we’ve arranged for Vena Jones-Cox to come all the way from Cincinnati, Ohio to share the wholesaling strategies that will make you $5,000-$10,000 per deal, in today’s market, with no cash or credit.

We’re thrilled to have Vena—she’s one of the most in-demand experts in the country. In addition to investing in real estate full-time since 1989, she’s been featured in Smart Money Magazine, Reader’s Digest, USA Today, Money, and dozens of other books and publications, and has taught literally thousands of regular folks all over the country how to achieve their financial goals through real estate investing.

Best of all, Vena is a real-life investor who explains exactly, step-by-step, how to make money in real estate. At our August meeting, she’s going to tell us how she puts a property under contract each week and then sells the CONTRACT for a $5-$10K profit without ever buying the property—and how you can, too.

The meeting is at the usual location, Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA at 5:00 pm. We’ll see you there!

BTW, Vena is also joining us for an all-day workshop on Saturday, August 8th where she’ll teach us all about Wholesaling Business & Marketing. It’s just $29.95 for Gold Members and $39.95 for Silver Members to attend; space will run out fast! Register right now by calling (678) 701-7160 or online at http://atlantareia.com/?p=27947.

Atlanta REIA Wild Wild West

Explode Your Business Now!
Do More Deals by Working Less!

with Frank Iglesias
July 27th, 6:30PM, Cherokee Cattle Company
2710 Canton Rd, Marietta, GA

Atlanta REIA Membes Please RSVP on Meetup.com

Frank IglesiasThis month we have a very special treat for you!  Whether you are new to real estate, getting back in, or building your business and working more than you’d like to, you NEED to be at this month’s Wild West Event!  Our guest speaker Frank Iglesias is the real deal. He’s currently running a very successful real estate business, and he’s built it so that it doesn’t suck up all his time!  As a result, he’s able to enjoy the lifestyle that most real estate investors only dream about.  How?  By effectively leveraging his time!

Join us at the Wild West Event on Monday July 27 at the Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta, as Frank shares with us his secrets on how he was able to grow his business, make more ca$h, do more deals, and buy more houses by using VA’s!  If you have been around real estate for any length of time, you’ve probably heard about Virtual Assistants, or “VAs” for short.  Sounds sexy, but how can you use them effectively?  Recently, Frank gave a talk and asked the audience what came to their minds when he said the term ‘Virtual Assistant’.  The answers were, like almost any other time he’s asked:  1) International, 2) Cheap, 3) Hard to Understand, 4) Do busy work tasks.  No wonder more people don’t leverage this awesome opportunity to its capacity–the mindset is not one for success before the relationship even begins!

Join us at the Wild West on Monday July 27, when Frank will break this mold by discussing several key points, including:

  • Are VAs your team membersor are they just doing tasks?
  • Hiring and training VAs to make decisions for you
  • How VAs fit into the 80/20 rule, when leveraged properly, so you get your time back

Reality is, running a business does take some work, but it does not have to be overly complicated, time consuming or difficult.  It does, however, require preparation, planning and ultimately, systems.  It won’t happen until you first decide to Stop Doing It All Yourself.

What you will learn:  Frank will cover a lot of ground on how VAs play a vital part of his thriving real estate business, including:

  • Scaling your business using VAs
  • Differences between local and virtual help
  • Unleashing the right VAs to run your day to day for you so you can focus on growth
  • The principals his team uses to look at over 100 deals every single week and cherry pick what makes sense
  • And Much, Much, More!

Bottom line, it’s competitive out there with the market picking up speed and more investors vying for the same deals. To make more money at a faster pace requires efficiency and speed. Having the right team in place is critical to achieving this successfully. Having just one helping hand daily can make a huge impact on your growth. VAs can help you accomplish this with greatly reduced costs, if done properly. So mark your calendars now and get ready for an action packed evening at the Wild West Event on Monday July 27! Bring your questions and take lots of notes so you too can Stop Doing It All Yourself! See you there!

Peachtree City EPIC Group
Creative Financing Solutions for Your Real Estate Business
with Special Guest, Robert Mulcahy
July 28th, 6:30PM, Green Ginger Asian Fusion
200 Market Place Connector, Peachtree City, GA

Robert MulcahyYou are all in for a special treat this month at the Peachtree City EPIC Group. Robert Mulcahy is going to be our guest speaker and will be teaching us about creative financing solutions for today’s real estate investors. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 28th at 6:30PM at the Green Ginger Asian Fusion Restaurant located at 200 Market Place Connector in Peachtree City, GA. This will be a great opportunity for you to network with other like-minded investors and to create a relationship with a company who can assist you with your financing needs.

In 2013, approximately 14.9 million single family homes were occupied by renters, which is a 26% increase since before the market crash in 2006. Of all the rental inventory, 53% are 1-4 unit properties. With a 2% decrease in overall home ownership, that creates an additional 2.5 million renters. (Source: National Multifamily Housing Council & U.S. Census Bureau. Updated 9/2014) With these statistics, it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that now is a great time to stock up on rental properties, but more properties means more cash needed to buy them.

Robert Mulcahy with Angel Oak Prime Bridge, LLC will show you the solutions to those financial problems. He will show you…

  • How best to use leverage & financing to increase your investment business
  • How to understand and access financing
  • An overview of new lending programs available specifically for investors
  • How to finance up to 25 properties at a time
  • Programs that use the property income to qualifyand not your personal incom
  • How to pull cash out of properties
  • And so much more!

If you are involved in any type of real estate transaction needing funding, you won’t want to miss connecting with Robert and his company. He has the ability to give you the freedom you need to purchase as many properties as you desire. Some highlights of investor loan programs available are:

  • No minimum down payment (Borrow up to 100% of the total project costs, subject to 65% of the After Repaired Value)
  • Landlord program – Convert renovation loans to permanent 30 year mortgages using the appraised value (With no seasoning on the appraised value)
  • Loans for renovation and new construction
  • Straight purchase or renovation loans
  • Cash out loans
  • Loans in the name of businesses
  • Works with all credit scenarios
  • Loans to foreign nationals

Come on out on Tuesday, July 28th. You are sure to meet some great individuals and make lasting connections that will help propel your business in the right direction. We look forward to seeing you there!

Sat, August 8th at 9AM @ Keller Williams – Decatur, GA
Advanced Wholesaling & Marketing Concepts to Make You More Money
A Full Day Workshop with Vena Jones-Cox
Sat, August 8th, 9AM-5PM
Keller Williams Metro Atlanta
315 W. Ponce De Leon Ave. Suite 100, Decatur, GA
Advanced Wholesaling: How to Sell a Deal a Week and Build Passive Wholesale Income

Vena Jones-CoxTo truly get out of “the rat race,” you need a plan that goes beyond learning the strategies, and takes you to the point where your real estate business, more or less, runs without you.

For wholesalers, this means two things: using advanced strategies to do more deals and create passive income, and systematizing your business so that others can easily do deals FOR you.

In the morning workshop you’ll discover:

  • How to wholesale all those “non-assignable” bank-owned properties on the market today, WITHOUT coming up with the cash to close, and double the number of deals you do
  • How to use creative finance concepts to wholesale properties and add passive income to your business
  • How to systematize everything your wholesale business does, and easily delegate it to others
  • How to hire help when you can’t afford help
Advanced Marketing: How to Find More Motivated Sellers, Buyers, Renters and Lenders

Once you learn the basics of any real estate strategy, every problem you have is a marketing problem.

Not enough deals? That’s because not enough motivated sellers know that you buy properties. Properties staying vacant too long? That’s because not enough qualified renters or buyers know about your great deal.

Great marketing gives you incredible leverage, making your phone ring off the hook with customers who want to give you money or give you properties. But do you REALLY know how to make your marketing as effective as possible for as little money as possible?

In this afternoon workshop you’ll find out:

  • How to create messages that your prospects can’t resist, and get 5-20% response rates to your very first mailing, and make lots of money without spending lots of money
  • How to get lists of motivated sellers, buyers, lenders, and more
  • How to make absolutely sure your mail gets opened and read

Vena Jones-Cox

Posted on July 22, 2015 by

Vena Jones-CoxThe only thing Vena Jones-Cox loves more than teaching people how to set their financial lives to rights by wholesaling houses is…wholesaling houses.

Wholesaling is a time-tested strategy that, in 5 simple steps, puts big chunks of cash into your pocket—without getting involved in risky rehabs, rental management, borrowing money, or even having to buy the properties themselves. It’s a strategy that’s both financially and personally rewarding—not to mention a lot of fun.

At the same time, she’s a huge advocate for rigorous training in the wholesaling business—Vena says, “Wholesalers who don’t know what they’re doing burn sellers, burn buyers, burn their own reputations and attract the attention of regulators. Wholesalers who’ve bothered to invest time and money in real training are the ones that make real money, build real businesses, and provide real benefits to their customers and the community.”

Following a blessedly-brief stint in corporate America, Vena began investing in real estate full time in 1989. Since that time, she’s been a principal in over 800 transactions including rentals, lease/options, note purchases, rehabs, and, of course, wholesale deals. She’s a licensed real estate broker and founder of REStructure Opportunity Fund, a privately-held equity fund that buys houses, notes and small apartment properties in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.

Vena is the past president of the Real Estate Investors Association of Greater Cincinnati, the Ohio Real Estate Investors Association, and the National Real Estate Investors Association, and the Founder of Central Ohio Real Estate Entrepreneurs in Columbus, Ohio. She lives in Cincinnati with the world’s cutest dog and evilest cat.

Finding Private Money to Fund Your Deals, Made Easy
with Special Guests, Mark & Anne Lackey

Mark & Anne LackeyAccess to money is a key component in the success of a real estate investor. The more access you have, the more opportunities that will be available to you. Come out this month to the Beginning Investors Group (BIG), where we are excited to have our good friends Mark and Anne Lackey as our special guest speakers. The Lackeys have raised close to a million dollars using a proven method that they will share with us. The meeting will take place on Monday, July 20th at 6:30PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs.

Finding private money is a huge challenge for many investors. Banks are generally not too helpful to investors, especially full-time investors who don’t have high earning full time J-O-Bs. Many sellers want cash, which leaves you, the investor, stuck trying to make deals work without access to the funds. By implementing the steps that the Lackey’s will teach you, your business will be able to take off to new heights!

Mark and Anne will show you…

  • 5 ways to fund your deals without using your own cash or credit
  • How to find private money lenders
  • A proven strategy to ask for the funds you need for your deals

and Continued Profits

Frank IglesiasThe market is hot! But you probably already know, or have heard this. What does this mean for wholesalers?

Be excited but also be CAREFUL!!!

There are a lot of deals to be had however, hot does not always mean profitable. And it certainly does not mean that if you wholesale it, your buyer will win when they are done.

The LAST thing you want is for a buyer to not want to do business with you again because you sold them a dud. Yes, they must do their own due diligence, but so should you and do it well.

In this meeting, we will dive into numbers, numbers and more numbers of real deals that make sense for Wholesalers AND Buyers. The ARV still matters in this market!

We will dig into the following items:

  • Contractor labor costs
  • What kind of due diligence you should be doing in various parts of town.
  • The numbers almost every single wholesaler does not take into account on new construction deals.
  • How to present your Buyers solid numbers because you did your due diligence so that both sides see the big picture…
  • And much, much more!

And when you are armed with numbers, you disarm the hype allowing for solid decisions to be made.  Lastly, you keep your Buyers out of bad deals to the best of your ability which is key for repeat business!

Come join us as we talk numbers, ARV, and put the hype at bay by focusing on the numbers. The best money made is the confidence of a Buyer who believes in you and then gives you repeat business.

See you there!

My name is Frank Iglesias. Come join us on Tuesday, July 21st at 7PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs as we network, do what is now our standard deal analysis at every meeting and then we will dive into our topic for the evening!
