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.

How Accurate Comps Can Make or Save You $1000’s on Your Next Deal
with Linda Dana on Monday, August 19th
Non-Members RSVP Online for $10.00 or $20 at the door.
Atlanta REIA Members are always FREE!
*Get an Online Comp Software Trial just for Attending
!

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!

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
  • Numberous 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.
