Atlanta REIA Meeting Updates

Buying REO Properties at Auction
What to Expect & How to Buy

Atlanta REIA South Monthly MeetingSo many properties have been foreclosed on and repossessed by the banks which are using “ballroom auctions” to liquidate the extreme excess of properties they have in inventory right now. Many times these REO’s sell for 40-50-60 cents on the dollar! There are some incredible deals to be had at these auctions, but you MUST know what you are doing to play in this game. The deals are plentiful if you know what to look for and what to avoid.

Leslie MathisCome join us on Thursday, March 10that 6:30 PM at the Atlanta REIA South Monthly Meeting at Ryan’s Restaurant located at 5425 North Henry Blvd in Stockbridge, GA (Map) where Leslie Mathis will take you step-by-step through what you can expect, and more importantly, what you need to know, to successfully buy REO Properties at these ballroom auctions. She will even cover a couple of strategies that will allow you to make quick cash without long-term ownership, simply by putting these properties under contract, then finding investor-buyers for them. Get paid thousands of dollars in just 30 to 45 days!
