What’s Happening at Atlanta REIA
Workshops & Meetings You Don’t Want to Miss!
Monday, August 19th @ 6:30 PM – Sandy Springs, GA
The Beginning Investors Group
How Accurate Comps Can Make or Save You $1000′s on Your Next Deal
with Linda Dana on Monday, August 19th
Non-Members RSVP Online for $10.00 or $20 at the door.
Atlanta REIA Members are always FREE!
*Get an Online Comp Software Trial just for Attending
!

Linda DanaJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group on Monday, August 19th at 6:30 PM at the Hudson Grill located at 6317 Roswell Rd NE in Sandy Springs, GA where property evaluation expert, Linda Dana, will be teaching new investors the art and science of “Determining Accurate Property Values”. Linda is a long time real estate investor and “transaction engineer”, a mentor and the President of Charlotte REIA.

Knowing “How to Determine Accurate Property Values” is a highly critical skill that we must master as real estate investors in order to create profitable deals. As investors, we determine a property’s value by “pulling comps” using property evaluation websites, software or the MLS. By “comps” we mean recent “comparable sales” of other properties in close proximity to our subject property that are similar in age, bedrooms, baths, square footage, lot size, style, amenities, etc. We base our offers to sellers on these numbers.

If we get these numbers wrong and think the property is worth less than it really is, we may offer the seller too little and lose the opportunity to buy the property and any profit we would have made to another buyer who is willing to offer more. If we think a property is worth more than it really is in its present, as-is condition or fixed up, we may pay too much and lose thousands of dollars when we sell.

Join us at the Beginning Investors Group on Aug 19th where Linda will teach us…

  • What criteria to use in your comp search
  • How to know a good comp from a bad comp
  • Which comps to include and which to eliminate
  • How to determine a property’s value based on comps
  • How to pull comps without being a Realtor
  • All this and much more…

*FREE BONUS: Linda will be giving BIG attendees a trial version of the Comp Service she uses to pull comps and determine accurate property values. This is the very same online software that many Realtors use! Certain terms and conditions do apply. Join us at BIG for the details.

If you want to learn to put more money in your pocket and leave less on the closing table, this is a BIG Meeting you don’t want to miss!

Linda DanaJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group on Monday, August 19th at 6:30 PM at the Hudson Grill located at 6317 Roswell Rd NE in Sandy Springs, GA where property evaluation expert, Linda Dana, will be teaching new investors the art and science of “Determining Accurate Property Values”. Linda is a long time real estate investor and “transaction engineer”, a mentor and the President of Charlotte REIA.

Knowing “How to Determine Accurate Property Values” is a highly critical skill that we must master as real estate investors in order to create profitable deals.

As investors, we determine a property’s value by “pulling comps” using property evaluation websites, software or the MLS. By “comps” we mean recent “comparable sales” of other properties in close proximity to our subject property that are similar in age, bedrooms, baths, square footage, lot size, style, amenities, etc.

We gather this recent sales data and analyze the high sales, low sales, average sales and distressed sales to determine the properties current “As-Is Value” as well as the “After Repair Value”. We must carefully determine which comps we include in our calculations and which ones to exclude if they are not truly “comparable”. We then carefully calculate our offer(s) to the seller based on these numbers.

If we get these numbers wrong and think the property is worth less than it really is, we may offer the seller too little and lose the opportunity to buy the property and any profit we would have made to another buyer who is willing to offer more.

If we think a property is worth more than it really is in its present, as-is condition or fixed up, we may pay too much and lose thousands of dollars when we sell. For example, if we are off by $5,000 to $10,000 on the properties value, our anticipated $5,000 profit on a wholesale flip may quickly evaporate.

Most investors don’t want to hire an appraiser to determine the value of every house they make an offer on, nor do they want to rely on a Realtor to determine these critical numbers for them. Therefore one of the first skills every new investor must master is how to determine accurate property values by pulling comps and doing the research themselves.
