The Beginning Investors Group
“Selling & Filling Your Houses Fast”
with Special Guest, Don DeRosa

Don DeRosaThe Beginning Investors Group (BIG) meets this month on Monday, June 17th at 6:30 PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd NE in Sandy Springs, GA. This meeting is FREE for Atlanta REIA Members. Guests and Non-Members can pay $20.00 at the door or RSVP Online for $10.00.

As a new or “new again” investor, have you ever asked yourself what you’ll do with your first or next property once you buy it? Will you quick turn it? Fix and flip it? Rent it? Lease-option it? Sell it with owner financing? How long will it take you to sell or fill your new investment property? These are common questions many new investors face when considering their first purchase.

Not having a clear “exit strategy” is an obstacle that often prevents many new investors from doing their first deal. If you would like to get a better understanding of how to quickly sell or fill your investment properties once you buy them, be sure to join us on Monday, June 17th at BIG where real estate expert and trainer, Don DeRosa, will be teaching our new investors how to market for tenants and buyers and how to choose thei right exit strategies for maximum profits and minimal out of pocket expenses.

Don will teach you:

  • How to choose the correct Exit Strategy so you can buy the house right
  • Marketing the property for a quick sale
  • Numerous proven methods of Don’s to put more dollars in YOUR pocket
  • Questions & Answers with the audience
  • All this and much more…

Don will use his 17 years of real estate investing experience to help you overcome many of the challenges you may be facing as a new investor. After his presentation, we will do some buyer and seller role playing to give you a chance to practice your negotiation skills. So come out and join us. Come early and stay late for Late Night Networking after the meeting.
