Mark JacksonAtlanta REIA is excited to announce that real estate appraiser and founder of Investor Comps Online, Mark Jackson, will be our special guest speaker at our Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on Monday, May 6th. In his presentation, Mark will be answering the first two questions EVERY real estate investor should be asking when evaluating a potential deal:

  1. “How much can I acquire this house for?”
  2. and more importantly… “How much can I sell it for?”

As an investor, having accurate comparable sales data AND KNOWING WHAT TO DO WITH IT is going to affect nearly EVERY aspect of EVERY single deal you ever do. It’s one thing to have access to comps, but if you don’t know how to use that information, it’s not going to do you any good. So Mark is going to show us how to use this data to analyze potential deals the right way.

Mark will also introduce you to Atlanta REIA’s new “REIAComps.com” evaluation system which provides valuation analysis for most homes in the U.S., as well as ongoing training that will help you become a valuation EXPERT in no time.

Mark will show you how to access the BEST comparable sales date in Atlanta and for ALL the major markets across the country WHEREVER you are, all from REIAComps.com!

So come out an join us on Monday, May 6th at 5PM at the Crown Plaza Ravinia where Mark will be sharing his timely message to help Atlanta REIA’s members, friends and followers discover “what you don’t know about comparable data in your market area” so you can evaluate real estate deals more effectively and maximize your profits while minimizing your losses. Get ready for a game changing evening! We hope to see you there!

Who’s Your Coach?

Posted on March 25, 2013 by
Atlanta REIA West Meeting
with Leslie Mathis on March 25th

Leslie MathisHowdy Partners!  Here’s a quick reminder about the Wild Wild West Meeting at 7pm TONIGHT, Monday March 25th, at the Cherokee Cattle Company on Canton Road in Marietta.  Tonight we’re covering some pretty important info that you need to know to catapult your success in your real estate business.  I’m going to let you in on something so obvious that its way too often overlooked.  Being in this business for many years, I am often amused by people that come into real estate excited as can be, only to fizzle out and quit before they even do one deal because they suddenly realize they aren’t going to become wealthy overnight.  Can you name any business or career that you can get involved in that doesn’t require at least some amount of training to be good at it?  Everyone knows you can’t become a doctor without medical school, internships, licensure, etc., right?  Real estate offers opportunities for wealth, lifestyle, and freedom way above that of the average doctor.  So why do so many people mistakenly believe that they can be successful in real estate without training and effort?  Doesn’t that seem absurd when you really stop and think about it?

Now, its definitely true that real estate is the business that most millionaires are made in.  However, just like with any business, trade, craft, or skill, you need to learn the tools, techniques, and systems that will lead you to success.  Then you have to go out and actually apply what you’ve learned to make things happen and create wealth.  It’s not going to happen simply because you’ve decided to get into real estate investing, any more than picking up a basketball will make you play like Michael Jordan.  Speaking of Michael Jordan, he doesn’t just rely on what he knows about basketball and go on that alone—HE HAS A COACH.  His coach guides and directs him and pushes him to be a better player.  His coach sees things about his playing that he can’t see on his own.  His coach helps him to excel and be one of the best.  Is real estate investing any different?  No its not.  The fastest way to success in anything, including real estate, is to work closely with someone that has documented success in that particular area and have them coach and mentor you.  Sounds simple, right?  Well, there’s a bit more to it than that, and that’s what we’re going to discuss in detail tonight.  We’ll cover things like:

  • Do you really need a mentor or coach?
  • How does a mentoring/coaching relationship work?
  • What should you expect from a mentor?
  • What’s the best kind of mentor or coach for you?
  • What are the benefits of working with a coach?
  • What qualities do you need to possess to be successful in working with a coach?

Atlanta REIA Main Meeting
with Don DeRosa on
The “New Subject-To” Strategies That Work in Today’s Real Estate Market
at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia on March 4th
Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge.
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $15 or Pay $20 at the Door.

Don DeRosaJoin us on Monday, March 4th at 5:30PM at the Atlanta REIA Main Monthly Meeting where real estate expert Don DeRosa will share with you, many of the “New Subject-To” strategies, tools and techniques he uses every day to create winning deals for himself as well as his buyers and sellers. Don is a part time real estate trainer and mentor and full-time real estate investor who actively buys, sells and holds properties each month for huge profits and long term cash flow.

Today Don is working feverishly at buying properties “Subject To” using the existing financing on the seller’s home instead of having to go to a bank or a hard money lender for funding. This allows Don to buy multiple properties fast, without coming up with all the purchase funds on the front end. This is the perfect strategy for buying and holding pretty houses in today’s market where easy funding is not readily available for real estate investors.

Don will walk you through real deals, step-by-step to demonstrate how to evaluate the lead, determine your exit strategy, structure the deal, negotiate with the seller and get the paperwork done almost instantly and without any of the hard work you normally do to get your deals done.

By the end of the presentation, you’ll know…

  • How to recognize a “Subject To” opportunity and buy with little or no money!
  • How to evaluate any lead and decide whether this is a winner for you and how much money you’ll make before you make your offer
  • How to combine buying strategies and exit strategies – that work right now, in 2013
  • How to structure a deal in less than 10 minutes, so that you make a minimum of $20,000 on it, choosing from multiple purchase and exist strategies
  • How to determine the seller’s hot buttons are so you can craft a deal the seller can’t refuse
  • How to use Don’s proprietary tools to negotiate for you, so you never let your emotions talk you into making a bad deal!

And is this is not enough, Don will be back with us on March 23rd & 24th for a two day boot camp called “Making a Fortune Buying Houses with No Money and No Credit” to really drive these points home and give you all the subject-to details you need to succeed in real estate investing. Once you are armed with Don’s training and the tools, you will be able to make this your best year ever!

Meeting Before the Meeting
Real Estate Strategies for a Changing Market
with Gordon Catts & Jim Hitt

Gordon CattsThe Atlanta Metro Area has gone from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market. The market has changed substantially in the last 6-12 months. Hedge Funds are stepping all over each other purchasing foreclosures and are running up the prices. The “courthouse gang” is now being routinely out bid by kids with a cell phone and an iPad who are receiving their bidding instructions from people we never see, who are sitting in front of multiple computer screens hundreds or thousands of miles away from the fray. Listed REO’s are selling above list price. When a new listing hits the market, within 24 hours there are multiple offers and the house is put under contract. With all this excitement going on it’s time to examine other strategies.

Jim HittPlease join us for the “Meeting-Before-The-Meeting” on Monday, March 4th at 3:00 PM at Total Wine & More located at 124 Perimeter Center W (see map), where your host Gordon Catts will be joined by Jim Hitt to discuss this important topic. Together Jim and Gordon bring years of valuable insight to this topic. Join us and bring your own questions, concerns, answers and insights. 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!

Atlanta REIA Meeting on Feb 4, 2013

Posted on February 1, 2013 by
Mon, February 4th at 5:30 PM @ Crowne Plaza Ravinia, Atlanta
Atlanta REIA Main Meeting
with Bill Cook on
“How to Earn Mail Box Money”
at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia on February 4th
Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge.
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $15 or Pay $20 at the Door.

Bill CookAtlanta REIA is very excited to announce that local real estate investing expert and leader of North Georgia REIA, Bill Cook, will be speaking at our Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on February 4th at the Crowne Plaza Ravinia in Atlanta which starts at 5:30 PM.

Bill Cook and his wife Kim have been investing in real estate in Georgia for over 18 years. They own a fair number of single-family rental homes, they flip houses, plus they do a lot of note and option deals. But the one unique thing they do that gives them the highest yields on their investment dollars and jam packs their mailbox with money is their mobile home investments… that’s right, they buy ugly, used trailers!

For example, they buy a used mobile home in a mobile home park for around $3,000, do a quick clean up and fix up, then sell it for $9,000 with $500 down at 18% interest with payments of around $275 per month for around 4 years. The results of this simple deal are eye-popping! They quickly turn $3,000 into $12,000 while getting a yield of around 100%! Try matching these results with ANY other type of real estate investing vehicle. And here’s the best part, you don’t need a lot of money and there is very little competition!

Join us at our February meeting if you want to see real-world examples – including pictures and paperwork – of what Bill and Kim do to earn their mailbox money and how they do it! There is no fluff… it will be all meat and potatoes!

  • Why do Lonnie Deals?
  • What is a Lonnie Deal and how does it work?
  • How do you find the right mobile homes to buy?
  • Which mobile home deals should you avoid?
  • How to work with park owners?
  • How to find sellers?
  • How to buy a “trailer”?
  • How to sell a “mobile home”?
  • What to do if the buyer doesn’t pay you?
  • When is the best time to do Lonnie Deals?
  • Examples of real deals that Bill and Kim have done…
  • And much more!

Come spend the evening with Bill on February 4th and let him teach you how to earn all the mailbox money you can handle in 2013! Also, be sure to check out Bill’s two latest articles on mobile home investing:

  1. Which Type of Real Estate Investing Deal Has The Highest Yield?
  2. Are You An Eagle Or An Oyster?

Joe ThompsonWe’re kicking off 2013 with a bang at the Wild Wild West Group! Saddle up and hold on to your bootstraps, cause believe me, partner, you’re in for a real treat. Join us next Monday, January 28th at 7pm at The Cherokee Cattle Company as we host our special guest speaker, local successful businessman Joe Thompson. Joe is going to talk about New Year’s resolutions and goal setting. Are you gonna be one of the multitudes that throw in the towel, toss another one of your dreams to the wind, or you gonna COWBOY UP and ride that buckin’ bronco to the finish? Are you ridin’ that bull…or just talking some bull? What if you only had to hold on 8 more seconds to win the prize? Could you ride it out…or will you jump off, full of self-doubt, fear, and lack of focus?

Joe holds on and STICKS WITH IT. Yeah, he gets bruised up a bit along the way (all cowboys do!), yet he is walking tall and focused. My daddy always said, if a horse bucks you off, you gotta get right back on. Horses can sense fear a mile away, and so can goals and resolutions. Come learn to lasso yours in and get control of them by “knowin’ where you’re goin’”. It’s a new year, and a new beginning. Joe will show us how we can all set some realistic, easily achievable goals to make 2013 our most successful and profitable year ever. Come learn what SERIOUS goal setting can do for you and your business!

Round up your posse, mosey on over, and we’ll see you there. Doors open at 6:30, program starts at 7pm. And don’t forget Late Nite Networking in the Saloon after the meeting, where you can talk with Joe and network with all the partners. Members attend FREE, and guests are just $5 at the door. Yeeeehaaaaaaa! Remember, you’re either making dust or eating it, so COWBOY UP! Read More→

Foreclosure & Short Sale Group
with Bob Massey

Bob MasseyOn January 7th at 3 PM, Bob Massey will be having his quarterly meeting at Total Wine & More located at 124 Perimeter Center W (see map). Bob will be giving a presentation you don’t want to miss! He is going to be going over the details of a $875,000 short sale he just closed that most investors would have abandoned months ago. Instead of giving up, he modified his strategies and ended up making more than if everything had gone according to the original plan! He is also going to be discussing mortgage fraud, securitization issues, and foreclosures. The banks have been defrauding homeowners for years, and we now have a way to use that to fight back against the banks and do some pretty incredible deals while helping underwater homeowners across the country.

New Year’s Party After the Meeting – FREE Food!
