Onsite Renovation GroupThis Month, on Tuesday, January 20th, 2015 at NOON, the Onsite Renovation Group property located at 576 John Wesley Dobbs Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30312 where we are doing a new construction. In October we met at this same job site. At that time it was a vacant lot where we had just demolished an old house and had begun preparation for the new construction. We are now in the process of framing the new two story house. We are using trusses for the floors and roof. If you do not know the difference between using trusses and doing “stick built”, you can learn about it on Tuesday! Join us to hear Aaron talk about the unique challenges of demolition and new construction. The project is in the Old Fourth Ward, which is a neighborhood that has suddenly become hot because of the proximity to the Beltline and the Ponce City Market development in the historic Sears building. Don’t miss this meeting that should prove to be very informative on some new topics we haven’t addressed before!

The Onsite Renovation Group, led by Aaron McGinnis of Craftbuilt Properties, is an 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.

3 Stages of Real Estate Investing
With Bill Cook

Bill CookBill Cook and his wife Kim have been investing in real estate since 1995. Their investment portfolio includes single-family homes, mobile homes, and a small mobile home park. When it comes to creative deal structuring and funding, Bill is among the best, most experienced investors in the country. Bill firmly believes that the key to being a successful real estate investor is to own a number of PAID-FOR investment properties than bring in mailbox money each and every month. Bill and Kim have been teaching others how to successfully invest in real estate since 1997 and have written a syndicated real estate investing news column since 2003 that is published in a number of Georgia newspapers as well as the Atlanta REIA Profit Newsletter.

At the Meeting, Bill will teach you about the three stages of real estate investing: Starters, Estate Builders and Enders. Do you know which category you’re in? Do you know how to profit from the two categories that you’re not in? Are you aware that everything you need to do a deal is contained within these three groups of real estate investors: The deal, the money, the paperwork, the management, and the know-how? Did you know that you can find each category of investor at the Atlanta REIA meetings?

At our Meeting, you will learn:

  • What is a Starter, Estate Builder and Ender?
  • What benefits do each group of investors bring to the deal-making table?
  • Where will you find the best, fastest and safest source of money to fund your next deal?
  • What’s the difference between being a bird-dog and a wholesaler…and is either one an Estate Builder?
  • What is the primary paperwork used by each category of investor?
  • Is it possible for flippers and wholesalers to retire wealthy?
  • What are the two things that make you money while you sleep? (This is why every real estate investor’s goal should be to become an Ender!)

Come join us at the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on Monday, January 5th and learn all you can about the Atlanta Real Estate Market from 3 highly successful, local real estate experts!
