“Negotiating is not something to be avoided or feared – it’s an everyday part of life.” ~ Leigh Steinberg

What does the term ‘negotiate’ conjure up in your mind?

  • A conflict where each side tries to ‘win’ by outsmarting the other?
  • A car salesman going to ”talk to his manager” about your offer, when you know he’s just going to get a cup of coffee and let you sit and stew?
  • A store clerk trying to convince you to buy something you don’t need, for more than you want to pay?

Do you get sweaty palms and a dry throat just thinking about negotiating with a homeowner?

I hope not! But if you do, rest easy, because it’s really not difficult, if you keep a few things in mind.  Read More→

Land is a beautiful thing, regarded by many as something of value in many places.  Similar to home ownership, land ownership is viewed oftentimes as a significant asset that increases in value over time, in particular in areas that are more developed or developing.

It should come as no surprise then that wholesaling land can be just as effective as flipping a house.  But there is more to land than just dirt.  There are three primary categories to consider:

  1. Undeveloped raw land – these are lots with no utilities of any kind and has never been built on

  2. Developed land – these are lots with utilities in place, may or may not have ever been built on but has been recognized by the city as at least ‘somewhat ready to go’ for construction

  3. Teardowns – these are lots with a house on them that is no longer habitable or perhaps is habitable but due to property values, age of home or other variables is better suited for demolition and new construction Read More→

Your Real Estate Foundation

Posted on October 3, 2017 by

Real estate investing has always been one of the ways that the determined investor can excel to great heights regardless of one’s educational, financial, or credit level.

I like to say there’s always time to do it right the first time.  And in that spirit, I want to prevent you from making some of the same business mistakes I’ve made by sharing some foundational nuggets I’ve learned along the way. 

The first and most paramount tool an investor can have is a solid real estate investing education.  I cannot stress this point enough.  Investing now is made up of so many different venues, options and techniques, you have to be prepared for any and every thing you may come across.  If you aren’t prepared, that could mean leaving money on the table.  I would challenge you to have at least a general idea of the different RE investing techniques.  REIAComps is an avenue to help you see which areas are most profitable.  This will assist you in deciding what area you enjoy and in which you work well.  Read More→

The Devil’s In the Details

Posted on October 3, 2017 by

Since being involved in investment real estate I have seen an unbelievable amount of disregard to details. At first I was surprised given that purchasing a house was such a large investment. These errors and/or lies range from rehab estimates to after repair values. Sometimes the information is an error like a typo or lack of knowledge. Other times it’s the seller, usually a wholesaler, attempting to hide the truth or sugar coat a bad situation. So like a carpenter, make sure you measure twice, sometimes three times, before you cut.

A few days ago, I received an email from a wholesaler that usually mass emails marginal deals. This time the numbers were horrible. Here is an example of what the real estate numbers looked like:  Read More→

Some topics Don will be teaching about include:

  • Using Apps on your iPad or other mobile device to evaluate deals on the go
  • Creative Techniques such as Wrap Around Mortgages, Sandwich Lease Options, Subject-To, Seller Financing, and more
  • How to be a transaction engineer.
  • How to be a problem solver.
  • And so much more…

Beginning Investors Group ONLINE
You Don’t Need Money Or Cred To Buy Houses! September 27th
@ 7PM on GoToWebinar
with Don DeRosa

No Charge to Attend for Members or Guests
Who Attend Online via GoToWebinar.com!

Don DeRosaHave you ever watched those tv programs that show couples flipping properties for tens of thousands of dollars and wished you could do that? Do you wish that you could find something that could provide you with additional income that would make your life better? Well guess what. Real estate might be your answer and it’s easier than you think. Most people think you have to have lots of money or good cred to buy real estate. Some people even think you have to be really smart. The truth is NONE of this is true! Don’t get me wrong, having any and all of those things are helpful but definitely not needed. In fact, most of the time I prefer to teach people with none of those things because then you can’t use them as a crutch!

This month on the BIGO broadcast, I will be showing you how to make money without any of your own money or cred. All you will need is your willingness to learn and your ability to apply simple techniques. I will show you how to identify a property, put it under contract and simply assign that contract to someone else for a fee. I will also show you how to buy properties where the homeowner just deeds over the property to you and you become the owner. Can you imagine buying properties where you never have to use your cred and never have to go to the bank ever again. Would you like to buy a new home to live in but can’t afford the down payment? That’s no problem, I’ll show you how.

Here is some of the items you can learn from this session:

  • How to find properties to flip for virtually no money out of your pocket
  • How to identify what is a good deal and what is a dud
  • What three tiny pieces of paper can make you $10,000 per month
  • How to upgrade to the house of your dreams without needing a bank
  • How to buy property after property even if you have horrid cred and no money to your name
  • And Much, Much More!

If you’ve ever said these words to yourself, “ I wish I could afford that…” then you need to be on this broadcast. This could be the most important session you go to your whole life. There are two types of people out there in this world. Those that “Dream” and those that “Do.” Which do you want to be? Be on this month’s broadcast on Wednesday September 27th @ 7PM ET and let me change the statement from “I wish I could afford that…” to “How can I afford that?”

Let me leave you with this thought. “ If you don’t build your dream, someone will hire you to build theirs”. Is that what you want? RSVP NOW!

Register Now!

The Beginning Investors Group Online ( The “BIG O” or BIGO) is an ONLINE educational group for new investors who are just getting started in real estate investing as well as “new again” real estate investors who’ve taken a few years off and are looking to get back in the game.

We will be bringing in local and national real estate experts to teach new investors how to survive and thrive in our ever changing economy and real estate market. The entire purpose of this group is to help new investors get their first deal and help new again investors get their next deal.

The Beginning Investors Group Online meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month from 7:00 PM ET to 9:00 PM on GoToWebinar. The main presentation will start at 7:00 PM ET and go to approximately 8:30 to 9:00 PM.

TO ATTEND ONLINE: 7:00PM Start Time. To attend the Beginning Investors Group Online via your PC, smart phone or tablet, Register Here for the Broadcast on GoToWebinar.com and you will be emailed login instructions for the event.

If we don’t have time to present your deal to the panel and the audience, after the meeting is over there will be plenty of time to network with other buyers and sellers and share your deals.

Your Property Flyers – In order to analyze your deals quickly, please put as much the following information on your Property Flyers as possible:

  • High, Average and Low After Repair Value (ARV)
  • Asking Price
  • How Much is Owed on the Property?
  • Amount of Monthly Mortgage Payments on the Property and the Interest Rate
  • If Behind on Payments, How Much?
  • Repairs Needed and Estimated Cost of Repairs
  • Annual Taxes
  • Annual Insurance Amount
  • Property Details such as Bedrooms, Baths, Square Feet, Year Built, Construction etc
  • Seller Situation and Reason for Selling
  • Photos of Property

Here is our schedule which is subject to change from time to time, especially around the holidays. Be sure to check our calendar for the most update dates and times.
