Measuring Your Money
Before You Buy

with Barry Garner

Barry GarnerCome join us at the Peachtree City EPIC Group on Tuesday, November 25th at 6:30PM at Green Ginger Asian Fusion Restaurant located at 200 Market Place Connector in Peachtree City, GA where Barry Garner of Solutions Realty Network will be give you a clear understanding of cap rates and returns on investment and how they are calculated and used.

Real estate investment professionals use a number of financial formulas such as cap rates and ROI to make sound investment decisions. Cap Rate is a real estate valuation measure used to compare different real estate investments. Although there are many variations, a cap rate is often calculated as the ratio between the net operating income produced by an asset and the original capital cost (the price paid to buy the asset) or alternatively its current market value. In short, capitalization rates are an indirect measure of how fast an investment will pay for itself.

At the EPIC Meeting you will learn:

  • The difference between cap rate and cash on cash return
  • How to calculate the “cap rate”
  • Should investors use cap rate on small multiplex investments like duplexes and single family homes?
  • Are cap rates different in other markets?
  • All this and much, much more.

Barry Garner is a real estate investor and a Realtor. He has been actively involved in the Atlanta real estate market for the past 5 years and has been a part of over 200 real estate transactions.

All Members & Guests Must RSVP Online to Attend
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!

Dorsie Boddiford, Kim Cook, Regina Sitterley & Leslie Mathis

As a new real estate investor, you might not realize it yet, but you will go through three distinct stages of your real estate investing career if you stick it out to the very end.

There is the beginner stage when you need cash now like you need oxygen to breath. Next is the intermediate stage when you start to build your cash flow and residual income and really start to crank things up. And finally there is the final stage when you become an “Ender” and are able to retire and comfortably live off your investments. Each of these stages require different amounts of time, energy, resources and education to master.

Join us at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on Monday, November 17th, at 6:00PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs where you will hear from four dynamic, successful investors in the different stages of their investing career. Dorsie Boddiford, Kim Cook, Regina Sitterley and Leslie Mathis will share with you their history, their goals, and give you insights on how to be successful during each stage. This is your opportunity to hear from investors you don’t normally get to hear from in this format who truly have valuable first hand insights into the different stages of their investing careers. You will be able to ask them questions about the challenges they have faced and have succeeded.

Many new investors may not realize that over the time of their investing life, they will move through various stages of their career. There is the beginning investor (or newbie), the intermediate, and the mature investor. Each of these stages require different mindsets and goals.

In August we saw the house before any work had been done to it and heard about the plans to bring it back to life. In September, the sheetrock had all been gutted out and the new walls were framed. The plans include adding a bedroom and bath on the front of the house where the porch was. The kitchen is being moved from the front of the house to where previously there was a bedroom. We also learned in September that a variance was required before we could proceed with the project. There are hurdles and pitfalls in getting projects permitted and every municipality has their own rules. Aaron has extensive experience with permit issues and will answer questions from the group about the permitting process. Our variance has now been approved. Join us and hear what is involved in getting a variance and the reasons for the requirement.

Atlanta REIA West
Keeping it Legal When Raising Private Money to Fund Your Deals
with Jim Hitt

Jim HittCome join us at the Atlanta REIA West Group on Monday, October 27th at 6:30PM at Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta, where Jim Hitt will be showing YOU how to keep yourself out of legal trouble when you are raising private money for your investing. Raising money from strangers is not as simple as you might think, especially when you have to deal with SEC guidelines and a real estate market that has brought about countless negative media headlines. Despite the negative headlines, the real estate market is ripe with incredible deals — deals so good we will be talking about them for decades.

Raising the money necessary to fund these deals is one of the biggest challenges for many investors. Banks are extremely tight and cash is king since sellers want cash! Raising private money isn’t always as simple as asking family, friends and contacts. Sometimes you have to engage strangers and somehow convince them to start writing you checks or wire money all without violating SEC guidelines.

You will learn:

  • How To Find Private Lenders
  • How To Negotiate For The Best Deal
  • The Legal Aspects Of Raising Funds
  • How To Not Run Afoul Of The Law
  • And much, much more.

Jim is the founder and President of American IRA. He is also a successful investor as well. Come and network with Jim and other fellow investors.
