The Beginning Investors Group is Getting BIG! We Had 116+ Investors at Our January Meeting!

Beginning Investors GroupYes, you read that right, 116+ people gathered together at January’s BIG meeting for a record turnout. We listened to an action oriented, powerful presentation made by William Crowley on Credit Restoration. William informed us of a lot of points that many of us did not know about our credit reports and history. He delivered his 4 step system to restore credit and facts about the UCC code. William touched a nerve that a lot of us have… Many of us are slaves to debt and our credit history. William is driven by his passion to help us break those chains of credit slavery.

Bernard Lawson and Ester WalkerWe also expanded our meeting agenda. We have started a “First Deal” segment, where we will highlight members as they do their first deals. Congratulations to Bernard Lawson and his partner Esther Walker of BE Property Investors LLC for taking the “leap of faith” and getting into the game. Congratulations to Jason Baines too who did his first “subject to” deal. If you are a first time investor and a regular attendee of our meeting, we want to hear about your first deal!

Mike Cherwenka of Goldmine PropertiesMike Cherwenka of Goldmine Properties also spoke about the in’s and out’s of Wholesaling during his long real estate investing career. Rock Shukoor also taught us “How to Wholesale Like A Pro” during Late Nite Networking.

Dustin Griffin also spoke on the benefits of having an Atlanta REIA membership and updated us on some of the exciting new subgroups that Atlanta REIA is forming now. He also updated us on how our members can participate in the new DIY Network TV Show called “First Time Flippers”. If you want to know more details, just go to First Time Flippers.

The Onsite Renovation Group
Meets Tuesday, January 21st at NOON
3152 Dodson Dr, East Point GA 30344

3152 Dodson Dr, East Point GA 30344This month, on Tuesday, January 21st at Noon, the Onsite Renovation Group returns to 3152 Dodson Dr, East Point GA 30344. We visited this house back in November when it was undergoing a moderate renovation including some re-framing and a lot of wiring and plumbing work. The renovation is now complete giving us the opportunity to critique the renovation and point fingers to things that may have been done differently. Parking is spacious but the driveway is steep, so you may want to park next door Sykes park.

Onsite Renovation GroupThe Onsite Renovation Group, led by Aaron McGinnis of Craftbuilt Properties, is an new educational and networking group that focuses on the acquisition, renovation and retail resale (fix and flip) of single family residential homes inside the I-285 perimeter and the in-town neighborhoods. The purpose of this group is to allow both new and experienced rehabbers and investors to meet, network and share knowledge and experience with “hands on” access to real property. The Onsite Renovation Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at NOON at an active renovation site, build site or rental property which will vary from month to month. There is currently no charge to attend these meeting.

During his presentation, William will teach how to use the Fair Credit Reporting Act to greatly benefit yourself and your customers by deleting negative entries off their credit report in as little as 30 days.

You will learn:

  • William’s 4-Step Credit Restoration Formula
  • How to delete negatives off your credit report and dramatically increase your credit score for the cost of a postage stamp.
  • How to get tax liens, student loans, late payments, collections, repossessions, charge-offs and even foreclosures and bankruptcies removed from your credit reports due to the Credit Reporting Agencies’ incompetence.
  • How to use a Cease and Desist Letter to stop harassing calls from Collection Agencies.
  • How to use the Fair Credit Reporting Act to your advantage.
  • How to settle accounts with Collection Agencies the right way.
  • Any much, much more about Credit Restoration…

And An Important Announcement on DIY Network Casting Call…
Are You a 1st Time House Flipper?
Would You Like to See Your 1st Deal On TV?
Join Us at BIG to Learn How You Could Be On DIY
Network’s New TV Show About First Time Flippers!
Watch Video!

Atlanta REIA has been contacted by the casting department for the DIY Network’s new show called “First Time Flippers”. They are looking for first time house flippers in the Atlanta area to feature on the upcoming season of the show. The show is about whether or not two First Time Flippers can turn a disaster house into a dream home. The show will chronicle the highs and lows of finding, fixing and flipping a house as investors take on their very first deal. Will they make a profit or will they break the bank?

People that are featured in an episode of First Time Flippers will receive $5,000 for allowing the show to film their flipping experience. Since the title of the show is “First Time Flippers”, they are looking for people who really are fixing and flipping a house for the first time. They do not want seasoned pros or people who are already flipping houses for a living. Also, they said they prefer people who plan on doing the majority of the physical work themselves – it’s just not as entertaining to watch somebody buy a house and then hire contractors to essentially fix it for them. Plus, this show is going to be airing on the DIY Network, which stands for “Do It Yourself”.

Join us at BIG on Monday, January 20th to Learn
How To Apply for the Casting Process!

“How to Profit from Pre-Foreclosures”
with Bob Massey

Bob MasseyOn Monday, January 6th at 3:00 PM at Total Wine & More located at 124 Perimeter Center W (see map), Bob Massey, a local real estate investor, mentor, author and pre-foreclosure expert, is giving a presentation that you don’t want to miss. He’s going to be talking about the various strategies you can use for pre-foreclosure deals. Not only is he going to be discussing short sales, he’s going to be teaching you about how to bypass short sales altogether by buying the defaulted note. This eliminates all of the restrictions of short sales! In fact, you can legally give your seller money if you’re successful!

By buying the note you open up many new ways to make way more money from the deal. If you are currently working short sales or throwing away your short sale leads, Bob is going to show why you might be sitting on a goldmine without even knowing it. If you know anyone that is 90 days behind on their home loan, you NEED to be at this meeting! Bob will show you how the banks have defrauded almost everyone who took out a mortgage in the last 15 years and how YOU may be able to profit from it. There is NO CHARGE to attend this meeting, so come join us to learn more!

How to Create a $10,300 Monthly Positive Cash Flow Without Having to Deal with a Single Tenant!
with Special Guest, David Lindahl
Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge.
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $15 or Pay $20 at the Door.

David LindahlOn December 2nd at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting, David Lindahl will teach you how to create a $10,300 per month positive cash flow and become a multi-millionaire in five years or less by investing in single family houses and then transitioning into apartment buildings!

With more than 18 years of experience in Real Estate Investing, David Lindahl has rehabbed over 820 houses, and currently controls over 7,400 apartment units. Starting out as a struggling landscaper with no experience in construction, Dave would rehab single-family houses to “flip” for chunks of money, so he could buy apartment buildings. Within the first 14 months, Dave’s apartment buildings created a positive cash flow of more than $10,300 a month for him and his family and within three and one half years Dave became a multi-millionaire.

Dave then learned about the four phases of the Real Estate Market Cycle, what strategies to use in each cycle for maximum profit and the fact that at any given time there are 10 – 20 markets around the United States that are “Emerging.” Dave learned how to find these markets, and he created a system to buy in these markets and became much wealthier, much faster! He has done and does all of this without dealing with a single tenant! Now he is ready to tell you how you can do it too!

Today, Dave has earned millions of dollars renovating houses for resale. And, he controls over 7,400 apartment units with a monthly cash flow equaling what most people make in a year!

Join Dave at Atlanta REIA where he will teach you:

  • How to Recognize Market Cycles and Use Them to Become Wealthy Fast!
  • How To Find Good Quality Management Companies to Manage Your Tenants so You Don’t Have to!
  • The 5 Steps To Creating Wealth Through Real Estate Investing
  • How to Find Motivated Sellers of Apartment Buildings and Get Them to Call You!
  • How to Analyze an Apartment Building in 3 minutes or Less to Determine if It’s a Deal!
  • The 6 Value Plays that You Should Look for in Every Deal—Finding Just One Can Make You a Fortune!
  • How to Explode Your Wealth Using 1031 Tax Free Exchanges!
  • Why There is Far Less Risk Owning Apartment Houses!
  • How to Refinance and Get Chunks of Cash—Tax Free!
  • Many Other Money Making Systems and Strategies that Dave has Successfully Developed!
  • And much, much more including answers to your questions…

David Lindahl BonusesCome join Dave and the rest of us at the Atlanta REIA Meeting on Monday, December 2nd at 5PM at the Crown Plaza Ravinia Hotel in Atlanta located at 4355 Ashford Dunwoody Road in Atlanta, GA and learn how to invest in apartment buildings.
