Unlocking The Secrets Of Master Leasing!
A Great Way to Get Started Investing in Real Estate
With Special Guest, David Tilney

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

David TilneyWe are very excited to announce that David Tilney will be our special guest trainer this month at Atlanta REIA on Monday, June 5th at 5:00 PM at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia located at 4355 Ashford Dunwoody Rd, Atlanta, GA. If you are considering becoming a real estate investor, and perhaps you can’t afford to buy a property-don’t despair! Think about renting from owners who are saddled with “inconvenient property’ and negotiating the right to sub-lease thier property to others. This could put in control of multiple properties in no time!

Very few realize the incredible benefits that a lease from an owner can transfer to a tenant. At the June Atlanta REIA Meeting David Tilney, a long time real estate investors and property manager, will explain how to get started investing in real estate by leasing properties from an owner and then re-leasing them to others in need of a good home. Attendees will learn how income, tax benefits, profit, growth and security can all be obtained by leasing and sub-leasing other people’s property. David will share the stories of 5 individuals who created income streams to support their lifestyle without the need of capital to accomplish their goals.

David will also demonstrate how master leasing is an excellent way to purchase property when and if an owner decides to sell at some time in the future. Master leasing gives you time to create trust with the owner by paying your rent on time and by doing more than you promise in your lease. Owners are more receptive to carrying the financing for those with whom they already have established a trusting relationship. You get to “test drive” a master-leased property to see how it performs before making any offers and your offers are on properties that are not listed on the market for sale so there is no competition.

During his 90 minute presentation, David will show you…

  • How you can achieve your real estate investment goals without taking on debt
  • How to acquire most of the benefits of real estate without ownership
  • “Test drive” properties before you buy
  • The difference between leasing and sub-leasing properties
  • How to lessen the owner’s liability dramatically
  • And Much Much More…

Come to our June 5th meeting and you will discover that master leasing is a wonderful tool to add to your real estate investing toolbox.

David started buying houses in 1978. As he acquired properties, he hired out the management, always with dismal results. His first house had a conical fireplace and chandelier stolen, a fire started in one of the bedrooms, and the rear fence burned down. In another case, his manager left town absconding with funds and was later arrested by the FBI. David quickly learned that property acquisition was the easy part of real estate investment. The key to long-term success was, and still is, good management. David has spent more than 35 years learning property management from the most knowledgeable managers he could find and from the ‘school of hard knocks.’ In his quest to be the best manager he could be, he has implemented, revised, tested and modified other people’s ideas, and created new material as necessary. David has changed systems and procedures as the laws and times have dictated.

If you are serious about building wealth in today’s real estate market, you don’t want to miss this presentation! RSVP Now!

Creating Quick Cash Now & Long Term Cash Flow by Buying Notes Without Using Your Own Cash or Credit with Donna Bauer

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

Donna BauerWe are excited to announce that Donna Bauer will be our special guest trainer this month at Atlanta REIA on Monday, May 1st at 5:00 PM at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia located at 4355 Ashford Dunwoody Rd, Atlanta, GA. Whether you are a conservative investor or a risk taker, buying notes puts you in control of your real estate transactions and your personal wealth planning.

Donna Bauer, nationally known as The Original NoteBuyer®, is one of the nation’s most recognized subject matter experts on Discounted Notes, Seller Financing, and Distressed Mortgages. For over two decades, Donna’s exclusive strategies have produced stunning results regardless of economic conditions.

As thousands of successful investors have discovered, Donna’s approach to real estate investing is brilliantly suited to today’s unique market and the shift toward alternative forms of financing.

During her 90 minute presentation, Donna will teach you how to…

  • Create quick cash and long term cash flow with 3 Basic Note Buying Strategies—WITHOUT your own cash or credit
  • Evaluate 4 critical areas before buying a note
  • Create an ‘ultra safe’ deal, even in a down market
  • Buy ‘part of a note’ for super high returns and safety
  • Create SMART seller financing for maximum cash out later
  • Buy and sell properties WITHOUT ever needing a bank

Plus, you’ll learn how to:

  • Use defaulted bank loans as a backdoor to acquiring properties well below market value
  • Use defaulted bank loans to create super high yields by modifying the mortgage and allowing the homeowner to stay in the house — a real win/win!

Donna will be quick to tell you that in her life time, she has never seen so many amazing opportunities with notes. With deals galore in the market place and bank financing hard to come by, seller financed notes have once again become the rage. This creates an awesome opportunity in the secondary market to make huge profits without all of the hassles of the proverbial “tenants, trash and toilets,” not to mention without using your own cash or credit. There’s no doubt, buying and selling other people’s seller-financed notes is the quickest, easiest, safest way to CASH IN on today’s fantastic real estate market!

Donna began her note buying career over 25 years ago in search of a vehicle that would offer her financial security without sacrificing cherished time with her four children. Working from her dining room table, as she began closing discounted note deals across the country, she realized that she had found a gold mine! Now, with well over a thousand deals under her belt, her peers consider her to be the foremost subject matter expert on note buying, while her students acclaim her as being a gifted, inspiring mentor.

If you are serious about building wealth in today’s real estate market, you don’t want to miss this presentation! RSVP Now!

with Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaAre you spending money on marketing and not getting any deals? Are you able to take any lead and make a deal out of it? Do you know how to make multiple offers that actually get accepted? Are you using technology to your advantage? If the answer is “NO” to these questions then you MUST attend this subgroup meeting.

Would you like to learn how to structure deals so you can buy houses with little or none of your own cash and none of your own credit? 15 hours a week… That’s all you need! Imagine… taking any seller lead and being able to create a winning deal out of it… Making thousands of dollars where you thought there were none. No more wasted marketing dollars. No more wasted phone calls. No more wasted time.

Join Don DeRosa at the High Tech Home Buying Creative Deal Structuring Subgroup on Monday, May 1st from 5PM to 6PM at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting at the Doubletree where he will be teaching about a wide variety of topics each month. Don will teach you about the state-of-the-art tools and techniques you’ll use to evaluate deals and figure out how to make them work – so you can work less and spend more time where you want, when you want and with whom you want.

Some topics Don will be teaching about include:

  • Using Apps on your iPad or other mobile device to evaluate deals on the go
  • Creative Techniques such as Wrap Around Mortgages, Sandwich Lease Options, Subject-To, Seller Financing, and more
  • How to be a transaction engineer.
  • How to be a problem solver.
  • And so much more…

Bring your deals and Don will walk through them step-by-step and he’ll show you how to easily evaluate the lead, determine your exit strategy, structure the deal, negotiate with the seller, and get the paperwork done in a snap.

Its an amazing time to be a real estate investor. Don’t look back 5 years from now and wish you had acted. Learn how to buy right… Learn to Make More and Work Less, Right Now!
