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

Learn to Keep it Legal When Raising Private Money to Fund Your Deals on Oct 27th, 2014 at West GroupPosted on October 22, 2014 by
Keeping it Legal When Raising Private Money to Fund Your Deals
with Jim Hitt
Come join us at the Atlanta REIA West Group on Monday, October 27th at 6:30PM at Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta, where Jim Hitt will be showing YOU how to keep yourself out of legal trouble when you are raising private money for your investing. Raising money from strangers is not as simple as you might think, especially when you have to deal with SEC guidelines and a real estate market that has brought about countless negative media headlines. Despite the negative headlines, the real estate market is ripe with incredible deals — deals so good we will be talking about them for decades.
Raising the money necessary to fund these deals is one of the biggest challenges for many investors. Banks are extremely tight and cash is king since sellers want cash! Raising private money isn’t always as simple as asking family, friends and contacts. Sometimes you have to engage strangers and somehow convince them to start writing you checks or wire money all without violating SEC guidelines.
You will learn:
- How To Find Private Lenders
- How To Negotiate For The Best Deal
- The Legal Aspects Of Raising Funds
- How To Not Run Afoul Of The Law
- And much, much more.
Jim is the founder and President of American IRA. He is also a successful investor as well. Come and network with Jim and other fellow investors.
DO NOT MISS THIS EVENT!
After the conclusion of the Atlanta REIA West Meeting (after 9:00 PM), we will be hanging out at the Cherokee Cattle Company for Late Nite Networking also known as the “Meeting After the Meeting”. So please come eat, drink, network and have fun with like-minded investors and real estate professionals as we hang out late into the night!
*Please Note: Meeting agenda is subject to change.
The Atlanta REIA West Monthly Meeting is an Atlanta REIA Subchapter led by Leslie Mathis that is held on the 4th Monday of each month at 6:30 PM at the Cherokee Cattle Company restaurant located at 2710 Canton Road in Marietta, GA.

Buying your own meal is optional but highly recommended and greatly appreciated since the Cherokee Cattle Company allows us to use their meeting room. There will be lots of learning and lots of networking. Bring your deals and your haves, wants and needs to the event.
