with Bob Massey on Short Sales
On Monday, October 17th, Bob Massey, an expert on short sales and working with agents, will be our guest at the Movers and Shakers Lunch Meeting at 11:30 AM at the 5 Seasons Brewery on Old Milton Parkway in Alpharetta. With a drop in house prices approximately 1/3 to 1/ 2 of 2006 levels, a lot of sellers owe more than then their house is worth. It is for this reason that a large percent of the market is made up of REO’s and short sales. Short sales comprise a great opportunity for the savvy investor to “create equity”. There certainly are a large number of “motivated sellers” in the market. This month 8845 Properties were advertised for foreclosure sale in the Atlanta market. The opportunities are great in the short sale arena, but there is a steep learning curve in order to participate in this arena. We are fortunate to have Bob Massey as our guest this coming Monday October 17th at our Movers & Shakers Lunch meeting. Bob will be discussing the opportunities and pitfalls of this fascinating process. Bob is an expert in this arena having personally been involved in well over 100 short sales as well as providing short sale training for both investors and real estate agents alike.
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.
