Wholesaling 101 Workshop
With Russ Hiner on Sept 28, 2013 from 9AM – 5PM
at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D, Buford, GA

Russ HinerDo you want to play the real estate investing game but don’t know where to start? Do you have little or no cash or credit? Want to avoid risk, repairs, tenants and toilets? Want to buy houses with no money?

Wholesaling is a great strategy for making quick cash, low risk, without the use of your credit, income, or money. Wholesaling real estate is among the most popular investment strategies because anyone can do it — you don’t need a real estate license or a lot of money to start. And once you start, with a little effort, it’s nearly impossible to keep the money from pouring into your bank account.

If you want to learn how to wholesale houses and get paid within 30 days after you put a house under contract, you should consider attending our Wholesaling 101 Workshop with Russ Hiner on Saturday, September 28th from 9AM to 5PM at the Atlanta REIA North Office located at 1960 Skylar Hill Dr, Suite D in Buford, GA. This class is limited to 30 people has sold out very quickly in the past since we only usually hold it once a year, so be sure to reserve your seat before they are all gone!

At the workshop, Russ will teach you the wholesale strategies you need to succeed and take you step-by-step through the entire process of how to wholesale real estate. All applicable forms and agreements with filled out examples are included.
