Investing in Tax Deeds with Michael Keefe
When was the last time you got to talk with and hear a real, “in the trenches”, advanced investor? One who is prospering in these challenging times? Well, Monday may be your next change. Michael Keefe, a 14 year vetran real estate investor, will be our speaker for this month’s Movers and Shakers Lunch Meeting on Monday, August 15th at 11:30 AM at 5 Seasons Brewing located at 3655 Old Milton Parkway in Alpharetta, GA.
Michael will be sharing information on his very lucrative tax deed investment strategy. He will discuss how to find, evaluate, and purchase tax deeds as well as explain how to avoid the common pitfalls in the bidding process. Tax sales are a special niche utilized by advanced investors. Imagine purchasing the deed to a $100,000 house for pennies on the dollar. Purchase vacant lots at fire sale prices. Get a respectable return on your funds with no tenants and no toilets. We are lucky to have Michael come share his vast experience in this little known and poorly understood arena. Come join us to eat, network, learn and have fun!
Movers and Shakers is an educational and networking group led by Gordon Catts that is designed to meet the interests of intermediate and advanced investors rather than new investors. The group meets on the 3rd Monday of each month at 5 Seasons Brewing in Alpharetta. The doors open at 11:00 AM and the program officially starts at 11:30 AM. Atlanta REIA members can attend at no charge and non-members for $5.00.

More and more we are hearing positive predictions for the housing market for the second half of 2011, as well as certainly for 2012 and beyond. We are not necessarily hearing these predictions on the news, but from people out there actively working in the real estate industry. Is it true? Is the Atlanta real estate market heating up again? Have housing prices bottomed out? Is it really cheaper to own that to rent? Are we at the all time best in the affordability index?
Come find out for yourself by joining Debora Harris on this month’s Atlanta REIA What’s Hot in Real Estate Investing Webcast on Tuesday, July 16th at 7PM on GoToWebinar and learn WHAT is really happening in the Atlanta Market and WHERE it is happening. Deborah gave us a brief taste of this at our August Main Meeting and is back to give us much more detail on Tuesday. Things really do seem to be heating up again if you know where to buy and sell. Register now for FREE and join me on the webinar on Tuesday. See you there!
Are you generating all the leads you need to buy as many houses as you want to each month? Do you have enough tenant/buyer leads to occupy, lease-option or sell as quickly as you would like to? If you are not generating all the leads you can handle, you are not alone. This is a very common problem for new and seasoned investors alike.
If you would like to learn how to generate more leads online using the latest internet marketing techniques or tried and true, traditional, offline marketing strategies, join us our next Atlanta REIA North Meeting on Wednesday, August 17th at 6:30 PM at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D in Buford, GA. Be sure to bring your favorite marketing techniques to share with others and your marketing related questions to get answered at the meeting!
Immediately after the Atlanta REIA North Monthly Meeting at approximately 9 PM, we will reconvene at the Mall of Georgia Tilted Kilt located at 3480 Financial Center Pkwy in Buford, GA for the meeting-after-the-meeting, AKA Late Nite Networking. We hope you will come out and eat, drink, network, learn and have fun with us and keep the investing conversations going late into the evening!
Haves and Wants is a weekly investor’s networking, brainstorming and deal making jam session hosted by Joe Thompson and held at 5 Seasons Brewing located at 5600 Roswell Rd (map) inside the Perimeter at the “Prado” in Sandy Springs from 1:30 PM till approximately 3:00 PM. This group is all about doing deals and making money right now. If you are a real estate player or want to be, this is one meeting you don’t want to miss! Read more→
