We are very excited about our next Atlanta REIA Main Meeting is on Monday, July 7th at the Salvation Army Building located at 2090 N Druid Hills Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30329. This month we will be having our monthly vendor tradeshow as usual, but will also be having a Expert Panel Discussion on “Understanding the Ever-Changing Atlanta Real Estate Market”. Gordon Catts will be moderating a panel of real estate experts consisting of Rhonda Duffy of Duffy Realty, John Holman of HomeVestors, Robert Locke of Crown Management and John Mangham with Starker Services.
The Atlanta Metro Area real estate market has changed dramatically since this time last year. Perhaps you’ve heard there is an “Atlanta Inventory Crisis”.
- Certain areas have gone from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market due to the inventory shortage of available homes for sale at auction or on the MLS.
- Many Realtors are not only struggling to get listings, but also to find suitable properties for their buyers.
- Some area property values have risen close to 2007 levels. Many home owners who have been “under water” may be close to break even in these areas.
- REO Brokers are reporting that banks are not releasing foreclosed inventory. Instead, they are reportedly selling off blocks of pre-foreclosed (“bad paper”) and foreclosed homes to large institutional buyers.
- Shadow inventory is alive and well and some of the foreclosure firms have laid off staff. The number of pre foreclosures is down and yet it is not consistent with delinquencies.
- Out of state and foreign buyers are active in the market and Atlanta is a favorite destination for real estate gurus once again.
To learn more about the changing market conditions, be sure to join us at Atlanta REIA on July 7th to hear a panel of local real estate experts discuss their opinions on the Atlanta Real Estate Market. This is your opportunity to hear from folks you don’t normally get to hear from who truly have valuable first hand insights into the Atlanta Market. So please bring your questions and do not miss your chance to learn what’s hot and what’s not in the Atlanta market.
*Please Note: Meeting agenda is subject to change.
How To Buy Homes at 65%
of Current Value Every Time!
At 4:00 PM in the Green Room, Bob Massey will kick off the Short Sale & Foreclosure Group as the “Meeting-Before-The-Meeting” where he will be covering the latest developments and news in the real estate investing world regarind shorts sales and foreclosures, but that’s not all.
How would you like to know the fool-proof way to buy houses at 65% of current market value?
At this meeting of the Short Sale and Foreclosure subgroup, Bob is going to show you how you can work with virtually any homeowner and buy their home at incredible discounts. We’re not talking about finding some tiny subset of people either! It doesn’t matter which bank their mortgage is with, whether they have equity or are underwater, or if they are current or behind on their payments. The last two people Bob worked with made over $90,000 on their deals!
At 5:00 PM in the Main Lobby, we have a Vendor Trade Show that lasts throughout the meeting where you can come out and meet many of our participating Business Members and Vendor Guests who help sponsor our meeting. See a full list of our vendors and sponsors below as they are added.
Vendor tables are limited, so any vendors wanting to reserve a table for the meeting can RSVP for a Vendor Table here. Vendor tables are reserved and setup on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Starting at 6:00 PM, Dustin Griffin kicks off the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting with updates and announcements. Dustin covers what’s happening at Atlanta REIA in the upcoming weeks and months such as upcoming workshops, webcasts, special events, members benefits and much more!

At approximately 6:15 PM, Joe Thompson will be hosting the Haves & Wants Speed Marketing Session which gives our members the opportunity to quickly market deals they HAVE and to find deals they WANT. We also give our business members the opportunity to get up and say a few words about their businesses. Members who want to participate in the Haves & Wants Marketing Session must bring your flyers and get to the meeting early to get on Joe’s list of participants.
