  • What Options You Have In Your IRA
  • How To Explosively Grow Your IRA In A Short Period Of Time
  • How To Use IRA’s As A Source Of Private Funds
  • What Types Of Retirement Accounts Can Be Self Directed
  • And much, much more…

For 30+ years, Jim Hitt has been committed to all aspects of investing, using self -directed IRAs for his own investments since 1982. Jim’s forte is the financing and acquisition of real estate, private offerings, mortgage lending, business’s, joint ventures, partnerships and limited liability companies using creative techniques. He has developed, owned, and managed everything from single family homes to multi-unit commercial properties and million dollar business’s.

Jim is the Chief Executive Officer of American IRA.

Mon, July 7th at 5:00 PM in Atlanta, GA
Atlanta REIA – July 7th
Join us for an Expert Panel Discussion on…
Understanding the Ever-Changing
Atlanta Real Estate Market

Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge. This month,
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $20 or Pay $25 at the Door.

We are very excited about our next Atlanta REIA Main Meeting is on Monday, July 7th at the Salvation Army Building located at 2090 N Druid Hills Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30329. This month we will be having our monthly vendor tradeshow as usual, but will also be having a Expert Panel Discussion on “Understanding the Ever-Changing Atlanta Real Estate Market”. Gordon Catts will be moderating a panel of real estate experts consisting of Rhonda Duffy of Duffy Realty, John Holman of HomeVestors, Robert Locke of Crown Management and John Mangham with Starker Services.

Power Panel

The Atlanta Metro Area real estate market has changed dramatically since this time last year. Perhaps you’ve heard there is an “Atlanta Inventory Crisis”.

  • Certain areas have gone from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market due to the inventory shortage of available homes for sale at auction or on the MLS.
  • Many Realtors are not only struggling to get listings, but also to find suitable properties for their buyers.
  • Some area property values have risen close to 2007 levels. Many home owners who have been “under water” may be close to break even in these areas.
  • REO Brokers are reporting that banks are not releasing foreclosed inventory. Instead, they are reportedly selling off blocks of pre-foreclosed (“bad paper”) and foreclosed homes to large institutional buyers.
  • Shadow inventory is alive and well and some of the foreclosure firms have laid off staff. The number of pre foreclosures is down and yet it is not consistent with delinquencies.
  • Out of state and foreign buyers are active in the market and Atlanta is a favorite destination for real estate gurus once again.

To learn more about the changing market conditions, be sure to join us at Atlanta REIA on July 7th to hear a panel of local real estate experts discuss their opinions on the Atlanta Real Estate Market. This is your opportunity to hear from folks you don’t normally get to hear from who truly have valuable first hand insights into the Atlanta Market. So please bring your questions and do not miss your chance to learn what’s hot and what’s not in the Atlanta market.

Atlanta REIA North Meeting
Deal Analysis, Due Diligence
& Determining the ARV

with Special Guest, Alisha Spence

We are pleased to announce that Alisha Spence will be the presenter at the Atlanta REIA North is a of the Atlanta Real Estate Investors Alliance that meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, Georgia in North Gwinnett County just a few miles from the Mall of Georgia. There is no charge to attend this meeting for Atlanta REIA members and the cost is $5.00 at the door for non-members.

This month, on Wednesday, June 18th at 6:30 PM, Alisha will be discussing how to analyze deals, do your due diligence and determine the “After Repair Value” (ARV) as accurately as possible.

One of the frustrations facing new investors is determining what a property is worth and what they can pay for it. In the rapidly changing market we are operating in, it is critical to be able to objectively determine the retail price for a property. In order to determine what to pay for a property, one must know the ARV. It is also important to know how the banks will value your property when you are ready to sell to a retail buyer.

Alisha will discuss…

  • BPO’s
  • Valuation Trends
  • Exit Strategies
  • AS-IS vs ARV
  • Comp Selections
  • Sample FNMA BPO Forms
  • And much more!

Alisha says “Profit margins are smaller as inventory continues to stay low, and valuation is the key to making sure you aren’t losing money. Accurate valuation is the #1, first and most important factor in the due diligence process – all other numbers are derived from this and therefore you do not want to miss this meeting to learn more about the process.”

Alisha has been doing BPO’s for banks, homeowners, investors as well as asset management companies and hedge funds. Her insights into this important topic are valuable. Alisha is an Associate Broker who has been specializing in the valuation, sales, and marketing of investment real estate in the Metro Atlanta suburbs since 2005. Alisha is experienced in many aspects of real estate including residential and commercial property management, managing operations, acquisitions and sales for one of the largest and most productive real estate investment companies in Atlanta.

Taco MacAfter the conclusion of the Atlanta REIA North Meeting (after 9:30 PM), we will be reconvening at the Mall of Georgia located at 3250 Woodward Crossing Blvd in Buford, GA for the “Meeting after the Meeting”. We may arrive late if the Atlanta REIA Meeting runs late. So please come eat, drink, network and have fun with us as hang out late into the night!
