Atlanta REIA West Meeting
“Real Estate Strategies For
A Changing Marketplace”

with Gordon Catts

Gordon CattsThe real estate market in the Atlanta Metro Area has changed dramatically in the last 6 months. It has gone from a buyer’s market to a seller’s market due to the inventory shortage.

  • 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 cell phones and iPads 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 often selling well above the 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 the perfect time to get together and examine other possible investment strategies and that is exactly what we are going to do at our next Atlanta REIA Wild Wild West Monthly Meeting led by Leslie Mathis.

Please join us on Monday, July 22nd at 6:30 PM at the Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Road, Marietta, GA (map) where special guest speaker Gordon Catts will discuss this important topic. Gordon brings decades of valuable insight to this topic. Bring your questions, concerns, answers and insights for discussion with the group. Atlanta REIA Members can attend for FREE, and bring a guest for FREE this month. Non-members are only $5.00 cash at the door. Door Prizes, Give-aways, and a great time!

After the conclusion of the Atlanta REIA Wild Wild West Meeting (after 9:00 PM), we will be stay put at the Cherokee Cattle Company Restaurant and Bar for Late Night Networking, what we call the “Meeting after the Meeting”. This is where great friends and great deals are made! So please come eat, drink, network and have fun with us as we close the restaurant down at 10 pm. Don’t miss this great opportunity to meet and bond with folks that are actively doing deals in today’s market. See you there!
