Don DeRosaThis month at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG), we are excited to have our good friend and local real estate investing expert, Don DeRosa, as our special guest speaker. Don will be teaching us the basics of rehabbing houses for big profits. The meeting will take place on Monday, June 15th at 6:30PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs.

Are you new to real estate and the thought of purchasing an ugly house that needs lots of work terrifies you? Maybe the thought of a rehab is exciting to you, but you haven’t actually followed through with it yet because you fear that you do not have enough knowledge about funding and fixing houses to take that plunge. Rehabbing houses can mean BIG PAYCHECKS, but they can also come with VERY EXPENSIVE LESSONS if you don’t know what you are doing.

Please join us this month at BIG as Don helps to take away the guesswork behind what it takes to quickly and profitably rehab houses.

At the meeting, Don will teach us…

  • What to look for in a rehab property
  • How to evaluate what rehab is needed in a property during your pre-purchase inspection
  • How to determine what you should fix and what you should not
  • Where you can get the biggest “bang for your buck”
  • How to estimate repair costs
  • Should you do the repair yourself or hire someone else to do it for you?
  • How to pick a good contractor
  • And much, much more!

Don DeRosa has successfully completed many of his own rehab projects. He is also an author, teacher, coach, and national speaker. Don has trained thousands of new and experienced investors alike and helped them build their wealth in real estate. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from an expert.

And that’s just the beginning….Don will be teaching a 2 Day Rehabbing 101 Workshop in July where he will teach you much more detailed information about rehabbing and even take you out to SHOW you some rehab projects in progress. This is an amazing opportunity to get some practical, HANDS-ON education into how to successfully rehab houses.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

The Atlanta Wholesalers Group
Do You Need a Huge Market to Wholesale Successfully?
Not if You are This Guy…

with Special Guest, Rodrigo Afanador
June 16th, 7PM, Hudson Grille
6317 Roswell Rd, Sandy Springs, GA

Rodrigo AfanadorHere in Atlanta, we are blessed to have more opportunities to do deals than most places. With a population of more than 5 million, opportunity lies everywhere. However, it is extremely difficult to actually DO deals everywhere. So, we take our maps and carve out our small areas. Those small areas still easily have a population of a couple hundred thousand people though.

What if you could leverage the knowledge of someone who is doing deals consistently with a target area of under 20,000 people? Rodrigo Afanador does just that and is very excited to share with us this month at the Atlanta Wholesalers group meeting on Tuesday, June 16th.

Rodrigo is a good friend of mine and does his wholesaling in Asheville, North Carolina. While Asheville has 80,000 people compared to Atlanta’s 5M+, Rodrigo still takes his target market down to around 15,000 – 20,000 people for 80-90% of his business. He is also a newer investor who hasn’t been doing this for too terribly long, but has gone full time now and is creating his own success story each and every day.

Rodrigo has a valuable story because each and every one of us can relate to at least some part of it. We all were new investors at one point or may still be a newer investor and he has taken the plunge into doing this full time like so many of us also have or hopefully plan to be able to do.

I know that you will learn a great amount of information from hearing Rodrigo speak with us about how he gets his business done in a market where most people would say “there aren’t enough houses to find deals.” His knowledge is abundant. His story is inspirational. And his efforts are greatly rewarding.

You won’t want to miss Rodrigo share his story and learn his tricks for success. Come ready to do business while you are here as well.

My name is Frank Iglesias. Come join us on Tuesday, June 16th at 7PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs as we network, do what is now our standard deal analysis at every meeting and then we will dive into our topic for the evening! See you there!

About Atlanta Wholesalers

Atlanta Wholesalers GroupThis Atlanta Wholesalers group is primarily for wholesalers who are serious about the business and not just “trying” Real Estate out. Frank started this group to work with other wholesalers who are serious about building their business using the utmost of honesty and integrity. We are looking forward to exploring how we can grow together in our local market. We hope you will join us!

Mountain REIA
Learn How to Cash in on the Changing Market with Paper!
with Special Guest, Joe Varnadore
June 2nd, 6:30PM, Golden Corral, Cumming, GA

Joe VarnadoreReal estate investors today are facing a changing market place. New regulations, historical lawsuits and settlements, along with a still sluggish economy have affected the supply and demand of real property in a significant way. These profound effects will set the course of real estate investing for the next several years. Real estate investors will have to adjust their approach to real estate as yesterday’s strategies and techniques will not yield the same result in the future. Come out on June 2nd to Mountain REIA at 6:30PM at Golden Corral located at 2025 Market Place Blvd, Cumming, GA to learn all about paper from Joe Varnadore

Today’s legislation is pushing banks to refinance existing loans while also putting restrictions on new loans. Other laws are making it more expensive for banks to foreclose and to hold foreclosed properties. In another huge move, new Fannie and Freddie actions have incentivized banks to sell more troubled loans rather than foreclose. These changes have led to a massive supply of troubled, non-performing notes.

Joe will discuss all these changes and how you can capitalize on this market as an investor in addition to teaching you…

  • Why the Note Business is the Hottest Topic in Real Estate Today!
  • How to Use Notes to Find Great Real Estate Deals!
  • How to Turn $100 into $100,000 or More Tax Free in Your IRA!
  • Why it is Easier to Flip Notes than to Flip Houses!
  • Why The Banks, HUD, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Have Stopped Foreclosing on Low Price Band Properties (Value Less Than $125,000)!
  • How to Become a Note Buyer with as Litte as $100!
  • How to earn 10% commissions from seller financing without using any of your own money!
  • How to make huge commission on commercial and other large notes!
  • And Much, Much More!

Joe Varnadore began investing in his first property at the age of 19. Joe quickly learned the importance of using creative financing to make the deal work. Since then, Joe has created, brokered, bought, and sold more than 10,000 real estate notes on both residential and commercial properties. As an author, speaker, and trainer for the past 25 years, he believes that there has never been a greater opportunity for real estate investors to use non-performing notes to acquire properties and seller financing to cash out.

Chuck-PhillipsCome join us at our next Peachtree City EPIC Group meeting on Tuesday, May 26th at 6:30PM at the Green Ginger Asian Fusion Restaurant located at 200 Market Place Connector in Peachtree City, GA. Our special guest speaker will be Chuck Phillips with CRS Data. Chuck will be showing us how to use CRS Data’s proprietary software to find and organize all the important property information you need so you can make informed decisions in all your real estate investing transactions.

CRS Data , a leading consolidator of information gleaned from public records provides Data to MLS Services, Realtors, Appraisers, Banks/Lenders, Government Agencies, as well as investors.

Chuck has worked with Courthouse Retrieval System (CRS) for over 11 years. He has worked with all types of individuals from Investors, Realtors, Mortgage Companies, Banks, Surveyors, and Developers on how to utilize public record information. He is licensed to teach “Using Public Records to Enhance Your Business” by the Tennessee Realtors Association in TN. Public records can be used to answer the following questions:

  • Where do you find off market properties?
  • How do you get in touch with people who don’t know they want to sell?
  • How do you become the only buyer?
  • How do you get contact information on a vacant property?
  • Where do you get the information to become the neighborhood expert?
  • Where do you get a mailing list of absentee owners?
  • How do you get a list of owners of multiple properties?
  • And much much more.

Public records are free to look at from state or county sites using the program provided by that organization. Most of the time all you can obtain is the Owners Name, Address, Tax Information, Parcel Number, Year/Effective Year Built, Lat/Long Information if the county has GIS maps, etc. The program from CRS, with the various Search Filters, allows you to sift through this data to arrive at the results you would like. If you are looking for out of state owners with a certain type of improvement, square footage, year built in a certain zip/street, this program can filter out that information. If you need a home with an existing mortgage, this information can be found.

All of this is public information, but the Engine CRS has with the various filters makes it very easy to find and export to Excel for marketing purposes. If you find a home and need to know the comps around the home, this can easily be found based on date, distance, and time of sale. This is another feature any investor needs depending on the type of exit strategy they have for the property.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to save yourself TONS of time researching properties!

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Leslie MathisLeslie MathisDoes the word “Negotiating” make you cringe? Do you shudder at the thought of having to go back and forth with the other party to make a deal that works for you? Do you believe that you have to be a “used car salesman type” to make it in the real estate business? Are you struggling to get your offers to sellers accepted? Do you have renters and buyers interested, but can’t close them? Are you feeling like your negotiating skills leave much to be desired, but don’t know what you need to do to get good at it?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions then you need to make plans to join us at the WILD WILD WEST EVENT on Wednesday, May 27th at 6:30pm at the Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta, where you’ll see how you can change all this around very quickly for yourself!

  • WHY it is critical you understand that nobody has to lose for you to win!
  • HOW to get what you want!
  • And Much, Much, More!

We’ll do LIVE negotiating demonstrations to help you SEE how the negotiating process works. We’ll talk about your MINDSET and what may need to be changed for you to be a more effective negotiator. We’ll share with you the “cowgirl” way of doing business (it’s probably not what you think!). We’ll show you how to turn your fear of negotiating into FUN negotiating!

Eddie SpeedReal estate investors have made non-performing notes the hottest topic in real estate today because they realize that it gives them a way to buy deeply discounted real estate for quick cash or long term cash flow without the concerns of dwindling inventory or having to deal with tenants.

  • How to earn velocity income without using any of your own money
  • Why Real Estate Agents, investors, builders, property buyers and sellers are creating a strong demand for these services and how you can cash in by becoming the “go to” person
  • Why flipping notes is easier and less time consuming than flipping properties
  • How to “paper out” of properties and triple your net income
  • How “anxious money” is changing the industry making your opportunities greater than ever before

The Multi-Family Investing Group
If You Think You Know Notes, Think Again!
with Guest Speaker, Joe Varnadore
June 3rd at 6PM, 3707 Main Street, College Park, GA

Joe VarnadoreNon-performing notes have quickly become the hottest topic in real estate today because real estate investors realize that they can use notes as a way to buy deeply discounted property for quick cash or long term cashflow without having to deal with tenants or a shortage of inventory. Join Joe Varnadore this month at the Atlanta REIA South / Multi-Family Commercial Investing Group meeting on Wednesday, June 3rd at 6PM at Club E Atlanta located at 3707 Main Street in College Park, GA as he teaches us all about notes.

Come to the meeting to learn about…

  • Why the Note Business is the Hottest Topic in Real Estate Today!
  • How to Turn $100 into $100,000 or More and Retire Tax Free!
  • How To Buy Non-Performing (Defaulted) Real Estate Notes For Pennies on the Dollar!
  • How to Get Started in Just Days!
  • What Happened To All of the REO and Short Sales
  • Why it Makes Sense to Work Smarter by Flipping Notes Instead of Property!
  • How to make huge commission on commercial and other large notes!
  • And Much, Much More!

Joe Varnadore began investing in his first property at the age of 19. Joe quickly learned the importance of using creative financing to make the deal work. Since then, Joe has created, brokered, bought, and sold more than 10,000 real estate notes on both residential and commercial properties. As an author, speaker, and trainer for the past 25 years, he believes that there has never been a greater opportunity for real estate investors to use non-performing notes to acquire properties and seller financing to cash out.

If you did not see the house before, come and hear about what we have done here. The house will be going on the market very soon so this is the last chance to see the finished product. Join us for networking and education. Bring your questions about renovations and construction or any aspect of residential investing.

Jonathan LymanHow do I do this deal…..?

A common, yet simple question. Wholesalers get taught to assign everything but reality has a way of requiring a little more effort for varying types of deals. On top of that, there are all kinds of ‘details’ that come up which tend to complicate the simplest of things. Have you been there? I know I sure have.

Jonathan Lyman of Halperin Lyman, LLC will share with us at this meeting all about the legal aspects of wholesaling. Things such as…

  • What CAN you do?
  • What CAN’T you do?
  • How to handle transactional funding
  • Different ways to close
  • How lenders fit in, whether private, hard or traditional
  • Why your attorney can’t get you an answer on title in Georgia in less than 24 hours in nearly any situation
  • How to work with multiple attorneys on one deal
  • And so much more!

This will be a very detailed and information packed meetup! Every time I go to a legal meeting, I learn something new and you will learn a ton too from Jonathan. Make sure to bring your notepad, questions and let’s be the best we can be with this ever too critical part of our business.

My name is Frank Iglesias. Come join us on Tuesday, May 19th at 7PM at the Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs as we network, do what is now our standard deal analysis at every meeting and then we will dive into our topic for the evening!

Atlanta Wholesalers GroupThis Atlanta Wholesalers group is primarily for wholesalers who are serious about the business and not just “trying” Real Estate out. Frank started this group to work with other wholesalers who are serious about building their business using the utmost of honesty and integrity. We are looking forward to exploring how we can grow together in our local market. We hope you will join us!
