Bob MasseyBob Massey here, and I hope to see you this Monday, September 10th at 3pm for the Atlanta REIA Foreclosure Subgroup meeting. At this meeting I am going to be covering some critical information you need to be a successful investor in this crazy market.

We’re going to be talking about the foreclosure process, short sales, and beyond. We’ll explain both the foreclosure and short sale processes from top to bottom, including what strategies are working best today, and the key mistakes that will absolutely kill your deals.

We’re also going to be explaining the securitization racket that has defrauded our entire country. Not only will you learn more about the banking system than most attorneys and judges in the U.S., but you will learn how to use this information to do some incredible deals. Chances are you’re going to learn how the banks defrauded you on your mortgage!

I’m really looking forward to seeing you at the meeting Monday, September 10, at 3pm!

The Short Sale & Foreclosure Group (SSF), hosted by Bob Massey, will have it’s quarterly meeting on Monday, September 10th at 3 PM in a private meeting room at Total Wine & More located at 124 Perimeter Center W (see map).

As many of you know, 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. Join us on Sept 10th and Don will share with you, many of his Real Estate Insider Secrets and the state-of-the-art tools he uses to evaluate deals and make them work – for him and for the seller.

As he unveils his Insider Secrets, he’ll share with you the buying and selling strategies that are working for him right now, in August/September 2012.  Yes, he’ll show you the secret tools and strategies he uses every day to create profitable deals, even when there appears to be nothing to work with. Don will show you how to create an abundance of deals to choose from!  Plus he’ll show you how he gets the information to evaluate a deal, wherever is he, so you’ll never waste time with leads you shouldn’t spend time on and beat other investors to the most profitable deals.

Don will walk through real world, actual deals, to demonstrate step-by-step how to apply these strategies, tools and techniques.  In fact, bring your deals, and he’ll show you exactly 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 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 2012 – to effortlessly make a deal work you
  • The Secret to creating passive income deals of $350 + per month without any of your own money and with NO management on your part.
  • How to structure a deal in less than 10 minutes, so that you make a minimum of $20,000 on it, choosing from multiple strategies
  • How to become a “mindreader,” to find exactly what the seller’s hot buttons are so you can craft a deal the seller is dying to take
  • How to use Don’s Green means ‘GO’, Red means ‘NO’ 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 Saturday, September 22nd for a full day workshop to really drive these points home and give you all the details you need to succeed. Once you are armed with Don’s training and the tools he uses every day, you will be able to make your next year of real estate investing, your best year ever… starting today!

PLEASE NOTE: Guests can Join Atlanta REIA as a Silver Member for a full year for only $100, now through September 10th, and attend our Atlanta REIA Meeting on Monday at no charge and as well as Don DeRosa’s “How to Make $20K in 30 Days” Workshop on September 22nd.

Dyches BoddifordAre you a sitting duck for creditors and predators and not even aware of it?  How should you hold title to your own home?   What’s the best way to hold title to your rental real estate and other assets?  You may be surprised to learn the answers. We’ve got those answers and more as a special treat for y’all coming up this month at Wild Wild West Subgroup of Atlanta REIA — Dyches Boddiford is appearing live and in person on Monday, August 27th!  Come join the group for a great dinner, wonderful networking, and a real treat to hear this true Expert speak on Trusts.  Dyches knows Trusts inside and out.  He’s so knowledgeable on the subject that attorneys come from across the United States to learn about Trusts and their proper use from him!

Folks, this is how the Super-Wealthy, Movie Stars and Rock Stars keep their assets and holdings off public records.  This is a no BS evening, from the Best of the Best.  Learn how to really protect judgment-proof your assets as you build wealth.  If you’ve already built your wealth and you aren’t using Trusts yet as part of your asset protection and estate plan, you best come learn what you don’t yet know.  Not having this vital information has cost many a wealthy person their entire fortune.  I’m not kidding, this is MUST-KNOW strategy if you want to be protected.  Dyches will be discussing Trusts and asset protection in easy to understand language that breaks it down for the beginning investor, yet includes information even most seasoned investors don’t know.  Read More→

Atlanta REIA West Meeting
with Dyches Boddiford on August 27th

Dyches BoddifordWhether you are a seasoned investor with a lot of houses, or just starting out, you don’t want to miss this chance to hear and meet Dyches Boddiford up close and personal on August 27th at 6:30 PM at the Atlanta REIA West Meeting being held at the Cherokee Cattle Company at 2710 Canton Road in Marietta, GA. Even if your credit is in the toilet and you have no assets, judgment proofing can be useful to you. Learn how to protect yourself from lawsuit predators. Protect yourself from crazy tenants who are looking to sue someone and make a quick buck. Or you rear end someone in traffic, automatically you are at fault… right. What if you never had to be worried about being sued? Well, anyone can sue anybody at any time… but the key is, they can’t collect one thin dime from your personal, family or corporate assets if you follow Dyches’ advice.

I hate to say it, but the awful truth is there are people out there who make their living suing people. So you forgot to fix that loose step on your rental property and someone slips and falls…the nine year old who came over to play with your kids fell off the trampoline… your underage teenage driver has an accident (and the likelihood of that is really high)…these are all potentially very costly occurrences if you aren’t set up with bulletproof asset protection. Take Dyches’ advice and you can sleep like a baby at night knowing that you and your family are protected.

Gurus come and gurus go, yet Dyches Boddiford has been around for a long time. He is going to be around a lot longer, you can count on it. Why? Because Dyches is the REAL deal in real estate, for real! A man of integrity, you can count on what he says. He is not some advertising hype trying to make a quick buck selling courses that don’t work. He truly knows asset protection inside and out. You can take what he says to the bank!

This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss. Bring your friends, partners and family for an informative, nuts and bolts presentation. FREE to Atlanta REIA members, and if you are not a member this is your opportunity to learn from the very best in the country…for the price of a Starbucks coffee (just $5 for non-members). Everyone who attends will get real life information that you can implement into your life situations NOW. Read More→

How to Use a Financial Calculator & More!
with “Cash Flow” Tom Boyer

HP 10BII Financial CalculatorIt’s no secret that there’s no better time in history to buy real estate than right now.  Deals are abundant and many sellers are now open to owner financing.  And there is certainly no shortage of buyers who want to take advantage of lease purchase and owner finance deals in today’s market conditions.  All this sounds very exciting and great opportunity exists for those who know how to work the numbers and structure deals to work in their favor.  Are you among the enterprising elite who know how to do this to create win-win situations for all parties involved?

Maybe you’ve wondered how the bank figures out the monthly payment on your mortgages or other loans.  Are you just getting started in the real estate game, finding words like amortization and PITI have you a little intimidated and confused?  Maybe you’re just now getting back into real estate investing, so some time has passed since you’ve run numbers with your financial calculator.  A good overview and quick refresher course would be great to hone your skills as you get back in the game.

Tom BoyerJoin us at the Atlanta REIA West Monthly Meeting on Monday, July 23rd at 6:30 PM at the Cherokee Cattle Company in Marietta, GA as we bring “Cash Flow” Tom Boyer for an evening of enlightening education and fun as you learn.  Cash Flow Tom will be sharing in very simple language and easy to follow steps how to use a financial calculator to figure out the numbers you need to know to be successful in this business. 

He’ll run through scenarios and examples of deals and show you how to calculate and run the numbers on them.   He’ll take the time to explain the most common financial buzzwords and what they mean for us as investors.  He’ll also answer questions you have on these and related topics.  You’ll leave this evening feeling confident and equipped to go out and get your piece of this amazing real estate pie!  This is surely one evening you won’t want to miss—see you there!

*Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring their financial calculators and pen and paper in order to get the most out of this evening’s presentation.  We also invite attendees to bring a note to analyze (NOT a property), so you can see exactly what goes in to figuring the numbers on that note.

Big Bucks in Bankruptcy

Posted on June 27, 2012 by

Are you tired of searching the MLS for REOs and then getting into a bidding war with other investors or having the properties sold before you can even get your offer submitted? “Stupid money” is back in the market. Are you tired of seeing properties going for 20+% over listed price because of multiple offers? Tired of no/low equity deals where you have to wrestle with the bank to do a short sale?  Tired of watching the lender sell the same property at the courthouse steps for less than your short sale offer? If so, you might want to consider other purchase options.
