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.

Atlanta REIA is excited to announce that 30 year veteran note investor, Eddie Speed, will be our special guest speaker this month at our main monthly meeting on Monday, June 1st at 5PM at Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA. Eddie will be teaching us why notes have become so hot and what every investor needs to know about buying and selling notes in today’s ever changing real estate and mortgage industry.

During his 90 minutes presentation, Eddie will teach you…

  • Why the Note Business is the Hottest Topic in Real Estate Today and why the Government is pushing it!
  • How To Find Real Estate Bargains Via Notes
  • How To Find The “Hidden Inventory” of Real Estate That No One Else Knows
  • How To Buy Non-Performing Real Estate for Pennies on the Dollar
  • How to Turn $100 in Your Roth IRA into $100,000 or More and Retire Tax Free
  • 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
  • How to become a Note Buyer with as little as $100 dollars
  • How to apply your current real estate knowledge and skills to make even greater profits with the note business
  • And much, much, more!

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!

May 6th at 6PM, 3707 Main Street, College Park, GA

Robert WitcherWe are pleased to announce that Attorney Robert “Bob” Witcher will be our special guest speaker this month at the Atlanta REIA South monthly meeting. The meeting will be co-hosted with the Multi-Family Commercial Investing Group and will be held on Wednesday, May 6th at 6PM at Club E Atlanta located at 3707 Main Street in College Park, GA. Bob will be teaching us about understanding the details that can make you money vs details that can cost you money.

As a real estate attorney, Bob has just about seen it all. He knows the ins and outs of what it takes to make a successful real estate transaction happen. Even the most seasoned investor can get comfortable with real estate transactions and may get sloppy with the details from time to time, which in turn can hurt your wallet.

Even if you have been around the closing table a few times, you won’t want to miss Bob as he shares examples of events that he sees in his practice on a regular basis. He will share with you some obvious, avoidable mistakes that he has seen made by newer and experienced investors alike.

Wouldn’t you rather learn from others mistakes instead of making them yourself and collecting smaller checks? If you will be just a little more precise with the details that Bob will teach you about, you will be able to walk away from the closing table with LARGER checks!

This presentation will be equally great for beginning and experienced investors. This will also be a great opportunity for investor who have only worked with Single Family Residences to get a glimpse at the exciting world of Multi-Family and Commercial Investing.

At the meeting you will learn…

  • Details that can derail or delay a closing
  • Why you should read the schedules in the title policy
  • Common mistakes that can cost you dearly
  • What happens to a tenant in a foreclosure
  • How a good attorney can protect your interests and make you more money
  • And Much, Much More!

Bob Witcher is a seasoned attorney with a long standing client base of investors and private lenders. Over the years, Bob has represented clients in a wide variety of situations impacting investors. His presentation “Focus on the Deal, Focus on the Details” will draw from his real world experiences working with investors on a daily basis.

Tue, April 28th @ 6:30PM – Peachtree City, GA
Peachtree City EPIC Group
How to Invest in Real Estate
Without Paying Taxes

with Special Guest, Scott Maurer
April 28th, 6:30PM, Green Ginger Asian Fusion
200 Market Place Connector, Peachtree City, GA

Scott MaurerCome join us at our next Peachtree City EPIC Group meeting on Tuesday, April 28th 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 Scott Maurer, Director of Business Development for Advanta IRA. Scott will be sharing his expertise on how to use a self-directed IRA to invest in real estate and grow your wealth tax free.

Many investors don’t know that it’s even possible to use retirement funds when investing in real estate. Most IRA accounts are invested with banks and brokerage firms who do not allow for this type of investment within their portfolios, but IRS regulations certainly allow for many types of alternative investments. Self-directed IRAs allow individuals to use their IRA funds to purchase rental property, rehabs/flips, private mortgages, tax liens, and much, much more. By using a self-direct IRA, an investor can utilize this “new” bucket of cash to acquire assets that they can better control and thus drive better returns to their IRA. Best of all, the gains from these investments go back to the IRA without any tax implications.

At the meeting you will learn:

  • What types of accounts are eligible to be self-directed
  • How you can move money from current IRA custodians without worrying about tax implications
  • What the rules are pertaining to prohibited transactions and disqualified persons
    (In short, what you can’t do with your self-directed IRA)
  • How the process works from contract to closing, and how the earnings come back to the IRA on a tax-deferred or tax-free basis
  • How to obtain “checkbook control” over your IRA for the purpose of real estate investing
  • And Much, Much More!

Scott has worked for Advanta since 2006, and is a frequent speaker on the topic of self-directed IRAs and using retirement funds to invest in real estate and other alternative assets. Scott is also an attorney and a member of The Florida Bar.
