Dyches BoddifordAre you a sitting duck for creditors and predators and not even aware of it?  How should you hold title to your own home?   What’s the best way to hold title to your rental real estate and other assets?  You may be surprised to learn the answers. We’ve got those answers and more as a special treat for y’all coming up this month at Wild Wild West Subgroup of Atlanta REIA — Dyches Boddiford is appearing live and in person on Monday, August 27th!  Come join the group for a great dinner, wonderful networking, and a real treat to hear this true Expert speak on Trusts.  Dyches knows Trusts inside and out.  He’s so knowledgeable on the subject that attorneys come from across the United States to learn about Trusts and their proper use from him!

Folks, this is how the Super-Wealthy, Movie Stars and Rock Stars keep their assets and holdings off public records.  This is a no BS evening, from the Best of the Best.  Learn how to really protect judgment-proof your assets as you build wealth.  If you’ve already built your wealth and you aren’t using Trusts yet as part of your asset protection and estate plan, you best come learn what you don’t yet know.  Not having this vital information has cost many a wealthy person their entire fortune.  I’m not kidding, this is MUST-KNOW strategy if you want to be protected.  Dyches will be discussing Trusts and asset protection in easy to understand language that breaks it down for the beginning investor, yet includes information even most seasoned investors don’t know.  Read More→

Atlanta REIA West Meeting
with Dyches Boddiford on August 27th

Dyches BoddifordWhether you are a seasoned investor with a lot of houses, or just starting out, you don’t want to miss this chance to hear and meet Dyches Boddiford up close and personal on August 27th at 6:30 PM at the Atlanta REIA West Meeting being held at the Cherokee Cattle Company at 2710 Canton Road in Marietta, GA. Even if your credit is in the toilet and you have no assets, judgment proofing can be useful to you. Learn how to protect yourself from lawsuit predators. Protect yourself from crazy tenants who are looking to sue someone and make a quick buck. Or you rear end someone in traffic, automatically you are at fault… right. What if you never had to be worried about being sued? Well, anyone can sue anybody at any time… but the key is, they can’t collect one thin dime from your personal, family or corporate assets if you follow Dyches’ advice.

I hate to say it, but the awful truth is there are people out there who make their living suing people. So you forgot to fix that loose step on your rental property and someone slips and falls…the nine year old who came over to play with your kids fell off the trampoline… your underage teenage driver has an accident (and the likelihood of that is really high)…these are all potentially very costly occurrences if you aren’t set up with bulletproof asset protection. Take Dyches’ advice and you can sleep like a baby at night knowing that you and your family are protected.

Gurus come and gurus go, yet Dyches Boddiford has been around for a long time. He is going to be around a lot longer, you can count on it. Why? Because Dyches is the REAL deal in real estate, for real! A man of integrity, you can count on what he says. He is not some advertising hype trying to make a quick buck selling courses that don’t work. He truly knows asset protection inside and out. You can take what he says to the bank!

This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss. Bring your friends, partners and family for an informative, nuts and bolts presentation. FREE to Atlanta REIA members, and if you are not a member this is your opportunity to learn from the very best in the country…for the price of a Starbucks coffee (just $5 for non-members). Everyone who attends will get real life information that you can implement into your life situations NOW. Read More→

How to Use a Financial Calculator & More!
with “Cash Flow” Tom Boyer

HP 10BII Financial CalculatorIt’s no secret that there’s no better time in history to buy real estate than right now.  Deals are abundant and many sellers are now open to owner financing.  And there is certainly no shortage of buyers who want to take advantage of lease purchase and owner finance deals in today’s market conditions.  All this sounds very exciting and great opportunity exists for those who know how to work the numbers and structure deals to work in their favor.  Are you among the enterprising elite who know how to do this to create win-win situations for all parties involved?

Maybe you’ve wondered how the bank figures out the monthly payment on your mortgages or other loans.  Are you just getting started in the real estate game, finding words like amortization and PITI have you a little intimidated and confused?  Maybe you’re just now getting back into real estate investing, so some time has passed since you’ve run numbers with your financial calculator.  A good overview and quick refresher course would be great to hone your skills as you get back in the game.

Tom BoyerJoin us at the Atlanta REIA West Monthly Meeting on Monday, July 23rd at 6:30 PM at the Cherokee Cattle Company in Marietta, GA as we bring “Cash Flow” Tom Boyer for an evening of enlightening education and fun as you learn.  Cash Flow Tom will be sharing in very simple language and easy to follow steps how to use a financial calculator to figure out the numbers you need to know to be successful in this business. 

He’ll run through scenarios and examples of deals and show you how to calculate and run the numbers on them.   He’ll take the time to explain the most common financial buzzwords and what they mean for us as investors.  He’ll also answer questions you have on these and related topics.  You’ll leave this evening feeling confident and equipped to go out and get your piece of this amazing real estate pie!  This is surely one evening you won’t want to miss—see you there!

*Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring their financial calculators and pen and paper in order to get the most out of this evening’s presentation.  We also invite attendees to bring a note to analyze (NOT a property), so you can see exactly what goes in to figuring the numbers on that note.

Heat of the Summer Admission Special — Members, bring up to 2 guests for FREE! Non-members just $5, and you can bring a guest for FREE! As always, admission is FREE with your Atlanta REIA Membership. See you Monday evening! Read More→

Big Bucks in Bankruptcy

Posted on June 27, 2012 by

Are you tired of searching the MLS for REOs and then getting into a bidding war with other investors or having the properties sold before you can even get your offer submitted? “Stupid money” is back in the market. Are you tired of seeing properties going for 20+% over listed price because of multiple offers? Tired of no/low equity deals where you have to wrestle with the bank to do a short sale?  Tired of watching the lender sell the same property at the courthouse steps for less than your short sale offer? If so, you might want to consider other purchase options.

Most savvy real estate investors and business owners agree that the bulk of their business relies on effective marketing to produce a steady flow of leads. But what happens when you learn to market well and your phone starts ringing at all hours, day or night? What’s next?

The next step is to capture information from those callers so that you can follow-up with them and convert them from “suspects” into real “prospects”. When a potential customer calls, you can have a pre-recorded message that informs them about your business and urges them to leave a brief voice mail message. You can also allow them to press “0” to speak to a live person 24/7 who can capture more useful information rather than just a name, number and brief message.

Eric ShurkeEric Shurke, of Voice Nation, will be our special guest speaker at the Atlanta REIA North Meeting on Wednesday, June 20th at 6:30 PM at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, in Buford, GA. Eric will be talking about how successful real estate investors leverage automated voice mail systems and live answering specialists to capture leads 24/7 effortlessly so they can work smarter and not harder to earn more money.

How would you like to be able to buy 3 to 6 properties a month without using your own credit or any real money? What would that do for your lifestyle if you could churn out 5, 10 to 25 houses a year making money – helping others get started? All it takes is the proper training and the dedication to get the job done. That is exactly what Larry will do for you. Larry is going to show you how to:

  • Learn How to Wholesale at Lightning Speed = Pay off Debts & Stable Cash Flow!
  • Learn How to Buy Properties Without Banks! = No Credit and No Money
  • Learn How to Become Wealthy Owning Properties That Are Paid Off in 8.3 Years!

Beginning Investors Group (BIG)How can you sell a house before you’ve ever purchased it? Well technically you can’t since you don’t own or control it yet, but the point is the property can be as “good as sold” before you ever buy it by having a ready, willing and able buyer already lined up and ready to go. Perhaps you’ve been hearing a lot of buzz lately about “reverse wholesaling” lately. It is really nothing new… it just means finding the buyer first and then finding the buyer a house rather than finding a house first, putting it under contract and then finding a buyer. Basically your buyer(s) tell you what the type of property they are looking for and you go find it for them. This makes sense right?

Rock ShukoorA big part of having the house “sold” before you buy is having an active buyers list of ready, willing and able buyers such as wholesalers, rehabbers, landlords, tenant/buyers, first time home buyers, etc. This month at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG), Rock Shukoor, leader of the I Love Marketing Group is going to share the online and offline tips and tricks that he uses to build his various buyers lists and keep them current.

Rock will teach you…

  • How To build a buyers list using social media such as Facebook
  • Why social media is important to an investor
  • How to set up an automated system for your social media marketing
  • The ins and outs of mobile media marketing

Register Now for the Beginning Investors Group

Social media is something 2 out of 3 people use today. Register to attend BIG on Wednesday May 23, to know how to put this powerful media to work for you. People with tickets will receive Rock’s E-book “Go Mobile Now or Die”. This is definitely a BIG meeting you don’t want to miss!

I look forward to seeing you at BIG on Wednesday May 23, 6:30pm at Chef Rob’s Caribbean Cafe at 5920 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs.
