Wholesaling Houses for Fast Cash!
With Russ Hiner

Russ HinerDo you want to play the real estate investing game but don’t know where to start? Do you have little or no cash or credit? Want to avoid risk, repairs, tenants and toilets? Want to buy houses with no money? If so, you will be glad to know that Russ Hiner will be speaking briefly at Atlanta REIA on Monday, Sept 9th about “Wholesaling Houses for Fast Cash!

Wholesaling is a great strategy for making quick cash, low risk, without the use of your credit, income, or money. Wholesaling houses is one of the quickest and easiest ways for new investors to get started since you don’t need a real estate license or a lot of money to start… just a little training. And once you start, with a little effort, it’s nearly impossible to keep the money from pouring into your bank account on a very regular basis. If you want to learn how to wholesale houses and get paid within 30 days after you put a house under contract, come hear Russ tell you how you can get started!

Dyches will be discussing the concepts as well as the practical aspects of legal entities such as Land Trusts, S and C Corporations, LLC’s as well as General and Limited Partnerships. There are three views to every new venture – legal, tax and business. Many people leave the decision as to which type of entity they should use to their attorney or accountant. These professionals may be good at what they do, but their views are strongly influenced by their area of expertise. Dyches will touch on the legal, tax and business points you should consider when choosing an entity.

Dyches is a full time investor who speaks from experience in a variety of real estate areas. His seminars and conferences are intended for the serious real estate investor. Many of Dyches’ students travel considerable distances to listen to him. Take advantage of this rare Atlanta REIA opportunity to hear Dyches teach!

Mon, August 19th @ 6:30 PM – Sandy Springs, GA
The Beginning Investors Group
How Accurate Comps Can Make or Save You $1000’s on Your Next Deal
with Linda Dana on Monday, August 19th
Non-Members RSVP Online for $10.00 or $20 at the door.
Atlanta REIA Members are always FREE!

Linda DanaJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group on Monday, August 19th at 6:30 PM at the Hudson Grill located at 6317 Roswell Rd NE in Sandy Springs, GA where property evaluation expert, Linda Dana, will be teaching new investors the art and science of “Determining Accurate Property Values”. Linda is a long time real estate investor and “transaction engineer”, a mentor and the President of Charlotte REIA.

Knowing “How to Determine Accurate Property Values” is a highly critical skill that we must master as real estate investors in order to create profitable deals.

As investors, we determine a property’s value by “pulling comps” using property evaluation websites, software or the MLS. By “comps” we mean recent “comparable sales” of other properties in close proximity to our subject property that are similar in age, bedrooms, baths, square footage, lot size, style, amenities, etc.

We gather this recent sales data and analyze the high sales, low sales, average sales and distressed sales to determine the properties current “As-Is Value” as well as the “After Repair Value”. We must carefully determine which comps we include in our calculations and which ones to exclude if they are not truly “comparable”. We then carefully calculate our offer(s) to the seller based on these numbers.

If we get these numbers wrong and think the property is worth less than it really is, we may offer the seller too little and lose the opportunity to buy the property and any profit we would have made to another buyer who is willing to offer more.

If we think a property is worth more than it really is in its present, as-is condition or fixed up, we may pay too much and lose thousands of dollars when we sell. For example, if we are off by $5,000 to $10,000 on the properties value, our anticipated $5,000 profit on a wholesale flip may quickly evaporate.

Most investors don’t want to hire an appraiser to determine the value of every house they make an offer on, nor do they want to rely on a Realtor to determine these critical numbers for them. Therefore one of the first skills every new investor must master is how to determine accurate property values by pulling comps and doing the research themselves.

Join us at the Beginning Investors Group on Aug 19th where Linda will teach us…

  • What criteria to use in your comp search
  • How to know a good comp from a bad comp
  • Which comps to include and which to eliminate
  • How to determine a property’s value based on comps
  • How to pull comps without being a Realtor
  • All this and much more…

If you want to learn to put more money in your pocket and leave less on the closing table, this is a BIG Meeting you don’t want to miss!

Remember, Retail Buyers buy based on emotion… Investors buy based on the numbers. Join us at BIG to learn more about how to determine these important numbers!

The Onsite Renovation Group
Meets Tuesday, August 20th at NOON at
3702 Sandy Shoals Ln, Decatur, GA 30034 (map)

Aaron McGinnisThis month, on Tuesday, August 20th at Noon, the Onsite Renovation Group meets at 3702 Sandy Shoals Ln, Decatur, GA 30034 (map). This project is fairly far-afield for our humble group, but it’s a great opportunity to see what a ‘lightweight’ project looks like. Paint, carpet, and some fresh cabinets take this newer-construction project from a clunker to real estate gold.

The Atlanta REIA Onsite Renovation Group (ORG), 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.

July 1st Meeting Before the Meeting
with Bob Massey

Bob MasseyOn July 1st at the “Meeting-Before-The-Meeting” at Total Wine & More located at 124 Perimeter Center W (see map), I am giving a presentation that you don’t want to miss. We’re going to be talking about the various strategies you can use for pre-foreclosure deals. Not only are we going to be discussing short sales, we’re going to be talking about how to bypass short sales altogether and going straight after buying the note. I’m also going to show why you might be sitting on a goldmine. If you know of anyone or know how to find people with Chase loans that are in default more than 90 days, you NEED to be at this meeting!

At 5:00 PM, Total Wine & More will be offering a complimentary wine tasting to all those who attend our meeting and wish to participate. There is NO CHARGE to attend this meeting or the wine tasting for Atlanta REIA Members and guests. Thanks Total Wine & More!
