While these nearby areas have thrived in the past years, East Lake Terrace is just starting to be an area of revival. It is still a mixture of vacant properties, new construction, longtime residents and renovated houses. Join us and hear what exit strategies will work in the neighborhood and what level of renovation will make sense as related to the after repaired value.

Atlanta REIA North Meeting
The Safest Way to Sell with Owner Financing – How to be Dodd-Frank Compliant with Rick Girgis

Rick GirgisWe are pleased to announce that Rick Girgis, a licensed Mortgage Loan Originator and funding manager, will be the presenter at the Atlanta REIA North Meeting on Wednesday, August 20th 6:30PM 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. Rick is going to address real estate investor’s concerns about staying in compliance with the Dodd-Frank Act when it comes to providing their owner-occupant buyers with owner financed loans.

Rick says… “I have been a Principle licensed Mortgage professional since 1997 and currently hold the title of Funding Manager for Good Friend Mortgage, Inc. As funding manager I prepare our closing documents, in compliance with all rules, laws, state specific regulations and produce a report illustrating compliance by an impartial 3rd party system and verified by myself a licensed seasoned professional. I am the principal consultant to the board of directors and liaison to FHA, HUD, Georgia and Florida banking regulatory departments.”

“With owner financing investors have several risks since they are essentially acting as the bank in the transaction. These risks include: (1) the risk of default and borrower bankruptcy resulting in a squatter situation, (2) reclaiming a damaged property, and (3) legal liability and civil tort cases from not using a licensed MLO during the application process or complying with current regulations. Investors operating under licensing exemptions (almost all investors who offer owner financing) are being held to the same standards as licensed lending institutions and must calculate and meet numerous requirements, most importantly ‘ability to repay’.”

“We use cutting edge software such as “Doc Magic and Ecompass”- an Ellie Mae operating and compliance system, from which we produce an impartial third party report illustrating that the lender or ‘individual’ operating under the exemption has done their due diligence and complied with licensing requirements during the application process.”

At the meeting, Rick will share:

  • A brief summary of the industry changes, and a recap of where we are now.
  • Risk #1– Default – how to protect yourself
  • Risk #2 – Property Damages – and how to protect yourself
  • Risk #3 – Legal Liability – and how to protect yourself
  • The consulting process
  • The application process
  • The closing process
  • Current legal regulations and Dodd/Frank Compliance – question and answers with legal council who will be present.
  • And much more!

Rick concludes “Utilizing our consulting, application processing, and closing documents preparation system is inexpensive and convenient way to offset the risk of owner financing in this overly regulated and litigious arena.”

To learn more, come out and join us on Wednesday, August 20th you will hear the unabridged, safest way to sell a property with owner financing.

Taco MacLate Nite Networking: After 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!

Give Your Investing the Edge You Need to Succeed with Handheld Technology
with Don DeRosa

Members Attend for FREE and Guests for $15 Online or Pay $20 at the Door.
Guests can join Atlanta REIA for Only $100/year and Attend for FREE!

Don DeRosaWhether you’re a novice or an experienced user of hand held devices such as smart phones and tablets, chances are your device will do a lot more than you know. If you would like to learn to leverage the power of your handheld technology, Don DeRosa has some tips and tricks that he would like to share with you that will make your real estate investing business a lot more easier and lot more profitable.

Using an iPad or smartphone effectively isn’t always intuitive as we would like it to be. They often require training, patience, and practice. But mastering these digital devices requires willingness – the willingness to ask lots of questions even if you think they’re really dumb. The fact is, changes in technology have given us productivity potential that was unimaginable 20 years ago. And like it or not, smart devices are here to stay and are likely to only increase in their complexity. And whether you keep up with this technology or fall behind, your competitors are embracing these devices and are raising the bar for you as well.

If you want to gain the cutting edge you need to succeed, RSVP for BIG, bring your smart phone and/or tablet and join us at the Hudson Grille on Monday, Aug 18th at 6:00PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs and let national speaker, mentor and active real estate investor Don DeRosa show you how to better leverage your smart devices.

RSVP Now!

At the meeting, you will learn:

  • Don’s favorite apps to research properties and put them under contract
  • How to automate your investing as much as possible
  • Evaluate properties with a few taps
  • And Much, Much More!

Don says, “What a difference my iPad and iPhone have made on my personal life and my real estate investing business. They have allowed me to load my entire life into one small device. My iPad can communicate with my staff, manage my expenses, and give me directions to the next house. It can find neighborhood comps, and take high-quality pictures and video. It can “park” pictures or contracts or handwritten notes in the cloud, so my staff and I can both get to them easily. It can keep my calendar and tell me when I need to be at my son’s hockey game. And most importantly, it can save me enough time to be at that game.”

Whether you are just starting out or you’re a seasoned pro, if you want to take your investing to the next level, RSVP NOW and DO NOT MISS this event!

Atlanta REIA – August 4th
Buying Houses “Subject-To”
In Today’s Real Estate Market

with Don DeRosa

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

Don DeRosaDon DeRosa is a part time real estate trainer and mentor and full-time real estate investor who actively buys, sells and holds properties each month for huge profits and long term cash flow. Today Don is working furiously at buying properties “Subject-To” using the existing financing on the seller’s home instead of having to go to a bank or a hard money lender for funding. This allows Don to buy multiple properties fast, without coming up with all the purchase funds on the front end. This is the perfect strategy in today’s market where easy funding is not readily available for investors to buy pretty houses.

Join us on Monday, August 4th at 5:00PM at the Atlanta REIA Main Monthly Meeting at the Salvation Army Building located at 2090 N Druid Hills Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30329 and Don will share with you, many of the subject-to strategies, tools and techniques he uses every day to create winning deals for himself as well as his buyers and sellers.

Don will walk you through real world, actual deals, step-by-step to demonstrate how to apply these strategies, tools and techniques. In fact, you can bring your deals, and he’ll show you exactly how to evaluate the lead, determine your exit strategy, structure the deal, negotiate with the seller and get the paperwork done almost instantly and without any of the hard work you normally do to get your deals done.

By the end of the presentation, you’ll know…

  • How to recognize a “Subject To” opportunity and buy with little or no money!
  • How to evaluate any lead and decide whether this is a winner for you and how much money you’ll make before you make your offer
  • How to combine buying strategies and exit strategies – that work right now, in 2014
  • How to structure a deal in less than 10 minutes, so that you make a minimum of $20,000 on it, choosing from multiple purchase and exist strategies
  • How to determine the seller’s hot buttons so you can craft a deal the seller can’t refuse
  • How to use Don’s proprietary tools to negotiate for you, so you never let your emotions talk you into making a bad deal!

And if this is not enough, Don will be back with us on August 23rd for a one day workshop called “Making a Fortune Buying Houses with No Money and No Credit” to really drive these points home and give you all the subject-to details you need to succeed in real estate investing. Once you are armed with Don’s training and the tools, you will be able to do deals you never thought possible!

Is Direct Mail Marketing Dead???
with Rock Shukoor on July 14th
at Hudson Grille, Sandy Springs, GA
Atlanta REIA Members & Guests Can Attend This Month at No Charge!

Rock ShukoorIs Direct Mail Marketing Dead? To find out more and find out the truth about direct mail and why it is not working for many people, join us at the All Inclusive Marketing (AIM) Group on Monday, July 14th at 7:00 PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs.

Rock says “In this meeting I will be sharing my experience with Direct Mail and I will show you some examples of what you can do to get a very high response rate. I have had up to 13% response rate from my pre-foreclosure campaigns and some other campaigns I have put together. The market is changing and it is almost a sellers market now. You, as a real estate investor must know how to find deals. In a buyers market that skill is not that important as deals are everywhere. When you are in a sellers market, you must have this skill, otherwise you will always be at the mercy of other investors like myself who can find deals. I will explain the whole process, the small but vital details, bring samples of some of my most successful campaigns, and most of all, how to automate it.”

Rock will teach you…

  • What to do to get your mail open
  • How to cut trough the clutter
  • How to stand out and beat your competition
  • How to get up to 13% response rate
  • What bonuses to offer
  • What to do to make your phone ring after the mail is opened
  • What market to choose
  • How many pieces of mail to send out per person
  • What is the magic number in direct mail
  • Where to get the list from
  • And much, much more

We will also hanging out after the meeting to socialize and build stronger bond. Come join us!

Rock's BookBONUSES FOR ATTENDING: Rock has some special bonuses for all those who show up early or on time: (1) a digital copy of his book, “Extraordinary Results by Ordinary Investors”, (2) a digital copy of his book, “Go Mobile Now Or Die!” and (3) a 30 point marketing audit of your business ($250 value).
