What should you take into account when figuring your numbers on a deal? Are you taking into consideration everything that you need to be? Come learn how TWO SEASONED PROS with over 40 years experience EACH in real estate figure their numbers and make decisions. You should also know they are money lenders, so you can bet they are sharp as can be—you have to be when you lend out funds for deals. Come see things through their eyes, so you can make great decisions about all your deals going forward!

Using deal examples, Gordon and Mark will illustrate:

  • Figuring holding costs

“Let’s Make A Deal”
Monday, March 14th at 6PM
Hudson Grille, 6317 Roswell Rd, Sandy Springs

Don DeRosaLynn OverallThe “Let’s Make A Deal” group is a subgroup of the Atlanta REIA led by Lynn Overall and Don DeRosa that now meets on the 2nd Monday of each month at 6PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, GA. The focus of the group is to take new investors through the entire process of repurposing distressed home. Each home is purchased by the group and is completed as a Joint Venture. An experienced rehab investor then leads the group through the rehab process. Risk of loss is mitigated through the use of a consistent system for rehabbing homes, and through the use of experienced contractors. Our goal is to purchase a new property at each of our meetings.

Atlanta REIA Members Please RSVP on Meetup.com
Atlanta REIA Members & Guests, Please RSVP on Meetup.com

During the meeting, we will identify a property, hard or private money lender, and a contractor. We will finance the deal using a participating money lender, all of whom attend the meetings. Do not leave your checkbooks at home because we buy properties at each meeting.

The sponsors of the “Let’s Make A Deal” group have successfully repurposed homes in California, Texas, Georgia, and Florida. If you are a new investor looking to be a participant in a home rehab project, then this is definitely the group for you. Please keep in mind that everyone who attends “Let’s Make A Deal” is required to participate. The minimum size of the investment will be determined by the purchase price of the home presented at the meeting.

Come on out and check out the meeting. We would love to have you join our team! We are looking forward to learning and earning with you!
