Marketing MethodsOver the last two months we discussed Step #2 of “Determining Your Marketing Plan in 7 Easy Steps” which was to “Determine Your Market”. We broke Step #2 down into 2 parts which were to determine “Who and What is Your Market?” and “Where is Your Market Place?” This month we’re going to move along to Step #3 which is to Determine Your Marketing Methods”.

Webster defines a “method” as a careful or organized plan that controls the way something is done. Coming up with an organized marketing plan is exactly what the 7 Steps are all about so we want to put some careful thought into the methods we will use to get our desired results.

In Step #1, you determined how many leads you need to achieve your personal and business financial goals. In Step #2, you determined who you want to market to and where you want to market.

In Step #3, you need to determine what marketing “methods” you will use to promote your real estate investing business to your desired prospects in your market area so you can generate your desired number of leads each and every week/month to reach your financial goals. Read More→

The Beginning Investors Group – Feb 17
Getting Deals Done Without Banks
with Special Guest, Bill Ham

All Members & Guests Must RSVP Online to Attend
Members Attend for FREE and Guests for $15 Online or Pay $20 at the Door.
Guests can Join Atlanta REIA for Only $100/year and Attend for FREE!

Bill HamCome join us at BIG on Monday, February 17th at 6:00PM at Hudson Grille located at 6317 Roswell Rd in Sandy Springs, where former corporate pilot and regular contributor to Atlanta REIA’s Profit Newsletter, Bill Ham, will show you how to get your first deal (and lots more) without having to qualify for a loan from a bank. He will teach you how to build a portfolio of cash flowing properties even if you have bad credit, no credit or you have never even done a deal.

RSVP Now!

Bill has been investing with real estate for eight years now. He started with one duplex and no cash. Bill then created a portfolio of hundreds units from single family deals up to large commercial apartment complexes and everything in between. To this day, Bill has never walked into a bank and qualified for a loan, put money down, and purchased a real estate investment. He has lots of bank loans, but all of them came from refinancing after taking control of the property with some form of creative financing.

“I didn’t start with a ton of cash. I was twenty-eight years old when I quit my career-building job as a corporate pilot. I didn’t have a life savings. I didn’t have lots of connections from the business world. I wasn’t able to go to all of my wealthy investors and have them fund my deals. I survived by perfecting the art of creative financing, by mastering the art of Creative Financing. Now I have seven employees, my own management company, and hundreds of units.I survived because the art of helping people solve their problems is a very lucrative business. This is the core of what I teach. In all my material, that is the one concept I will repeat over and over”!

You will learn:

  • Techniques to create single or multi-family portfolios without using banks
  • Learn what Lease Options and Debt Partners are and how they are used in creative financing.
  • What Master Lease Options are(MLO).
  • How and When to use Seller Financing
  • How To Negotiate Creatively
  • And much, much more…

Atlanta REIA members can attend at NO CHARGE. Non-Members can register online for $15 or if you register online or $20 at the door. RSVP Now and come learn how to buy houses without using banks! Seating is limited.

We are very excited about this meeting and our guest speaker and star maker, Ariel Ghinga, who will be talking about how to use “Public Speaking” to help grow your small business.

You may be thinking that public speaking is not for you and that there is no way anyone could drag you on to any stage to speak. Well, whether you realize it or not, any time you speak in public, regardless of the number of people in the audience, it is public speaking. Your communication skills are perhaps one of the single most significant skills you can acquire that will help you soar to the top of your chosen profession. You can use these skills regardless of whether you are speaking with one person, such as buyers, sellers and customers, or to thousands of people.

Ariel Ghinga is a skilled public speaking coach who has helped many professionals and entrepreneurs grow their businesses through his time-tested and proven public presentation techniques. His breakthrough programs on public speaking and leadership have enabled participants to soar to financial heights using his advanced immersion methodologies on communicating effectively.

Come join us at AIM on Monday, February 10th to learn how you can sharpen your speaking and communication skills. This is a rare opportunity you don’t want to miss!

Where is Your Market Place?

Posted on January 24, 2014 by

Ugly HouseIn last month’s article we discussed Step #2 of “Determining Your Marketing Plan in 7 Easy Steps” which was to Determine Your Market”. In Step 2 we covered “Who and What is Your Market”. Using Wholesaling as our investment strategy, we determined that our ideal property prospect was a distressed, vacant, ugly house with no mortgage or a low loan balance. Our ideal seller was a motivated seller who needs to sell and often needs to sell quickly. We also determined that our ideal buyers for these distressed properties were other real estate investors such as rehabbers, landlords, wholesalers and hedge funds who can pay all cash and can close quickly.

This month we’re going to pick up where we left off in Step #2 and determine “Where is Your Marketplace?If we continue using Wholesaling as our investment strategy, you now need to determine:

  • Where will you find motivated sellers with distressed properties for sale?
  • Will you target your entire metro area to find these properties or only certain counties, townships, zip codes or neighborhoods?
  • Will your buyers want to purchase homes in the areas where you have inventory?
  • Are there certain areas you should avoid?

By answering questions such as these, you will quickly start to determine the marketplace where you will buy and sell your inventory of distressed homes. To help you answer these questions, click below to download and complete the… Read More→

The Beginning Investors Group is Getting BIG! We Had 116+ Investors at Our January Meeting!

Beginning Investors GroupYes, you read that right, 116+ people gathered together at January’s BIG meeting for a record turnout. We listened to an action oriented, powerful presentation made by William Crowley on Credit Restoration. William informed us of a lot of points that many of us did not know about our credit reports and history. He delivered his 4 step system to restore credit and facts about the UCC code. William touched a nerve that a lot of us have… Many of us are slaves to debt and our credit history. William is driven by his passion to help us break those chains of credit slavery.

Bernard Lawson and Ester WalkerWe also expanded our meeting agenda. We have started a “First Deal” segment, where we will highlight members as they do their first deals. Congratulations to Bernard Lawson and his partner Esther Walker of BE Property Investors LLC for taking the “leap of faith” and getting into the game. Congratulations to Jason Baines too who did his first “subject to” deal. If you are a first time investor and a regular attendee of our meeting, we want to hear about your first deal!

Mike Cherwenka of Goldmine PropertiesMike Cherwenka of Goldmine Properties also spoke about the in’s and out’s of Wholesaling during his long real estate investing career. Rock Shukoor also taught us “How to Wholesale Like A Pro” during Late Nite Networking.

Dustin Griffin also spoke on the benefits of having an Atlanta REIA membership and updated us on some of the exciting new subgroups that Atlanta REIA is forming now. He also updated us on how our members can participate in the new DIY Network TV Show called “First Time Flippers”. If you want to know more details, just go to First Time Flippers.

During his presentation, William will teach how to use the Fair Credit Reporting Act to greatly benefit yourself and your customers by deleting negative entries off their credit report in as little as 30 days. Negatives such as bankruptcies, tax liens, student loans, late payments, collections, repossessions, foreclosures, charge offs and much, much more.

  • How to delete negatives off your credit report and dramatically increase your credit score for the cost of a postage stamp.
  • How to get tax liens, student loans, late payments, collections, repossessions, charge-offs and even foreclosures and bankruptcies removed from your credit reports due to the Credit Reporting Agencies’ incompetence.
  • How to use a Cease and Desist Letter to stop harassing calls from Collection Agencies.
  • How to use the Fair Credit Reporting Act to your advantage.
  • How to settle accounts with Collection Agencies the right way.

Network’s New TV Show About First Time Flippers!
Watch Video!

Atlanta REIA has been contacted by the casting department for the DIY Network’s new show called “First Time Flippers”. They are looking for first time house flippers in the Atlanta area to feature on the upcoming season of the show. The show is about whether or not two First Time Flippers can turn a disaster house into a dream home. The show will chronicle the highs and lows of finding, fixing and flipping a house as investors take on their very first deal. Will they make a profit or will they break the bank?

People that are featured in an episode of First Time Flippers will receive $5,000 for allowing the show to film their flipping experience. Since the title of the show is “First Time Flippers”, they are looking for people who really are fixing and flipping a house for the first time. They do not want seasoned pros or people who are already flipping houses for a living. Also, they said they prefer people who plan on doing the majority of the physical work themselves – it’s just not as entertaining to watch somebody buy a house and then hire contractors to essentially fix it for them. Plus, this show is going to be airing on the DIY Network, which stands for “Do It Yourself”.
