with Attorney Doug Shaddix on Using Land Trusts
This month on Monday, March 26 at 6:30 PM, at the Atlanta REIA West Meeting at the The Cherokee Cattle Company in Marietta, we have an incredible opportunity for you to learn the basics of asset protection from one of the country’s foremost experts on the subject! We are very proud to host Atlanta’s own Attorney Doug Shaddix, founder of Wealth Preservation Solutions, LLC. which specializes in helping clients avoid probate, minimize their tax burden, and maximize their privacy by utilizing trusts and entities that assist you in your asset protection. Attorney Shaddix will be sharing his knowledge and expertise on this very timely and important subject. Why is this so important? Here’s why…
If you have significant assets of any type, you are a target for a lawsuit. You need to know more about legally protecting your assets. Enjoy greater privacy, limits on your personal liability, as well as tax benefits through the use of entities such as LLC’s, corporations and trusts. Join us at the meeting to learn how to protect yourself from predators, creditors, and the like. Read more→
If you are tired of shorts sales, you don’t want to miss the webcast we’re holding on Tuesday, March 27th, with Atlanta REIA Foreclosure sub-group leader, and our good friend, Bob Massey. It’s called “What’s Hot in Real Estate Investing with Bob Massey on Short Sale Alternatives” and you’re not going to believe what you hear.
Do you think you could find some homeowners in this market who’d be interested in walking away from their underwater property, debt-free, with no short sale, no foreclosure, no deficiency and no deed-in-lieu? Now what if you could pick up those pretty houses at 65% of current market value?!? Check out this example deal…
- In your marketing for houses, you come across a guy with a house worth $500,000 in the current market. He bought the house in 2005 and has a mortgage balance of $700,000.
- He is able to make his payments, but wants to walk away from the house if he doesn’t have to do a short sale or deed-in-lieu.
- You use Bob’s no-hassle, no-bank strategy, and you get the house at $325,000 (65% of current market value).
- You give the homeowner $10,000 for the deal (you’re free to do this because it’s not a short sale!)
- You flip the house immediately for $450,000.
- You pocket $115,000 in profit.
How many of these deals do you have to do to have your biggest year ever? You’ve got to get on this webinar to hear from Bob on what he’s doing and how you can get started too. Register for this FREE Webcast Now!
BTW, since this strategy doesn’t involve short sales or foreclosure, you don’t have to worry about any of the pain-in-the-neck seasoning rules or limitations on who can buy the house or make money from the deal! We’re finally free again to do huge deals without having our hands tied behind our backs by the banks!
Hosted by Tom Boyer
The Note Buyers Group an Atlanta REIA educational and networking subgroup led by Tom Boyer that is designed to teach real estate investors how to buy and sell the mortgage notes that secure a property rather than buying the property itself. The group’s goal is to transact deals within the group and increase our professionalism through education in a changing credit market. The agenda for this month’s meeting is (1) Notes for Sale – Bring yours for analysis, (2) Smaller investment amount opportunities and (3) Strategies using seller financing to buy/sell properties, and (4) Legislation update as appropriate.
The Note Buyers Group meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM at Olive Garden located at 2467 Cobb Parkway SE in Smyrna about 1/2 mile from I-285. If you are a new investor, this is a great opportunity to pick up pointers on what to do and what not to do when investing in notes. Atlanta REIA Members can attend at no charge. Read more >>
Most people wanting to learn about real estate investing often have little or no cash, credit, or experience. Because of this, wholesaling houses is one the fastest and easiest ways to get involved in real estate investing. It takes little or no cash, the risks are low, the opportunities to learn are BIG! This month at BIG, Russ Hiner, local real estate expert with over 30+ years experience, is going to show us how to quick turn houses for huge profits. Russ’s current real estate business is focused on the rentals, wholesale real estate transactions, lease options, notes and deeds, loaning private money, commercial and note buying. Russ has consistently been reaching his goals in real estate for over 30 years and he is going to show you how to do the same thing by starting with wholesaling.
Alan McDonald is also going to conduct an exercise at the meeting taken from the book “4 Hour Workweek” to either defeat or act in spite of that fear. Bottom line, if you haven’t done your first deal, or you are “new-again”, and you want that to change, you do not want to miss this monthly dinner meeting.
BIG, the Beginning Investors Group, meets on Wednesday, March 28, at Chef Rob’s Caribbean Cafe at 5920 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs. The meeting begins at 6:30 pm with networking and at 7pm we start with a short presentation by the group’s founder and leader Alan McDonald. If you are a member of Foursquare, or Twitter, please remember to check in! February’s BIG meeting will be jammed packed.
