Linda DanaJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group on Monday, August 19th at 6:30 PM at the Hudson Grill located at 6317 Roswell Rd NE in Sandy Springs, GA where property evaluation expert, Linda Dana, will be teaching new investors the art and science of “Determining Accurate Property Values”. Linda is a long time real estate investor and “transaction engineer”, a mentor and the President of Charlotte REIA.

Knowing “How to Determine Accurate Property Values” is a highly critical skill that we must master as real estate investors in order to create profitable deals. As investors, we determine a property’s value by “pulling comps” using property evaluation websites, software or the MLS. By “comps” we mean recent “comparable sales” of other properties in close proximity to our subject property that are similar in age, bedrooms, baths, square footage, lot size, style, amenities, etc. We base our offers to sellers on these numbers.

If we get these numbers wrong and think the property is worth less than it really is, we may offer the seller too little and lose the opportunity to buy the property and any profit we would have made to another buyer who is willing to offer more. If we think a property is worth more than it really is in its present, as-is condition or fixed up, we may pay too much and lose thousands of dollars when we sell.

Join us at the Beginning Investors Group on Aug 19th where Linda will teach us…

  • What criteria to use in your comp search
  • How to know a good comp from a bad comp
  • Which comps to include and which to eliminate
  • How to determine a property’s value based on comps
  • How to pull comps without being a Realtor
  • All this and much more…

*FREE BONUS: Linda will be giving BIG attendees a trial version of the Comp Service she uses to pull comps and determine accurate property values. This is the very same online software that many Realtors use! Certain terms and conditions do apply. Join us at BIG for the details.

If you want to learn to put more money in your pocket and leave less on the closing table, this is a BIG Meeting you don’t want to miss!

Forces have been changing the face of the Atlanta Real Estate Market and East Point has not escaped the tidal wave of rising sales. Join us and see what a sub-$200k resale and a moderate renovation looks like in the new market.

This is a project that was sourced to the investor by New Western Acquisitions and is being renovated by Craftbuilt. We should be deep into framing and rough mechanical installations at the time of the meeting.

Onsite Renovation GroupThe Atlanta REIA Onsite Renovation Group (ORG), led by Aaron McGinnis of Craftbuilt Properties, is an new educational and networking group that focuses on the acquisition, renovation and retail resale (fix and flip) of single family residential homes inside the I-285 perimeter and the in-town neighborhoods. The purpose of this group is to allow both new and experienced rehabbers and investors to meet, network and share knowledge and experience with “hands on” access to real property. The Onsite Renovation Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at NOON at an active renovation site, build site or rental property which will vary from month to month. There is currently no charge to attend these meeting.

Cash Cows Commercial Group
“Real Estate Strategies For
A Changing Marketplace”

with Gordon Catts & Steve Brown

Gordon Catts & Steve BrownThe 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 Cash Cows Commercial Group Meeting.

Please join us on Thursday, May 23rd at 11:00 AM at 5 Seasons Brewing located at 5600 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, GA where Steve Brown will be joined by Gordon Catts to discuss this important topic. Together Steve and Gordon bring 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 non-members for only $5.00.
