Creative Financing Group (CFG)This month at our Creative Financing Group (CFG) meeting on Wednesday, September 14th at 6:30 PM at Champps in Alpharetta, mortgage expert Jim Duffy (frequently heard on John Adams real estate investment radio show) will teach you how to get your Lease Purchase/Options sold.

Remember what Mark Durham taught you about SELLING Lease Purchase/Options:

  • If you want to actually get your properties sold, you need to have a good mortgage person qualify you’re tenant/buyer prospects up front so you’ll know if they will be able to get approved for a mortgage in the near future.
  • If you want to actually get your properties sold, you need to have a good mortgage person work with you’re tenant/buyers throughout the lease term to make sure they actually do get approved for a mortgage.

At this month’s Creative Financing Group meeting, Jim will teach you:

  • How to screen tenant/buyers
  • How to work with tenant/buyers to make sure they get approved for a mortgage

Jim says: “Credit scores have become all-important in qualifying buyers to actually purchase a home. It can mean the difference between closing on a successful lease/purchase option, and watching the once enthusiastic tenants move out and leave a home that needs repairs and to be marketed to a new tenant.” Read More→

Atlanta REIA Small Business GroupIt is not what is used to be… Business today is not what it was years ago in any shape, fashion or form.

When I first started in the business world some years ago – not only did we not have cell phones we did not have faxes, internet, or I shudder to say, an electric typewriter. Everything was done by hand or typewritten on a “standard” typewriter, on “paper”. It was time consuming and a lot of work.

Today we not only have cell phones, but apps; we have faxes and e-mails; internet advertising, social media and instant communication like never before and I believe it is only the beginning. Read More→
