Russ HinerWholesaling is a great strategy for making quick cash, low risk, without the use of your credit, income, or money when done correctly. 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, it’s nearly impossible to keep the money from pouring into your bank account.

This is the Atlanta REIA Wholesale 401 Workshop taught by Russ Hiner. We will teach you the 2011 wholesale strategies you need to succeed. There is no need for you to have money out of your pocket or credit, you do no repairs or work yourself and they are usually done in a few days or weeks.

We will 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.

The best part about wholesaling properties is that you don’t get bogged down with tenants, toilets, or holding costs. It’s all about finding a motivated seller, then selling them to motivated buyers for instant profit and moving on to the next big score. Find out how to get in on the action before it’s too late… register today!

Real Estate InvestingYou say flipping and real estate investing are dead?! Well, you need to meet Edith and Wanda! These two ladies have already made over $90,000 in the first four months of 2011— just by flipping houses!  Yeah, baby!

I sat down for a quick interview with these two amazing women:

How did you get started investing together? “We met at work and, though we each invested in real estate on our own, we decided to do some deals together for the sheer joy of it.  We combined our money, knowledge and experience and really started hammering out the deals.”

How do you find your deals? Read More→


Are Your Roots Planted Firmly?

Posted on May 25, 2011 by

Avoid Stinkin ThinkinDavid, a seasoned real estate investor, has been stuck in a rut and wanted to talk over his situation.  Like many folks, he has yet to get back on firm ground since the real estate bubble popped in 2006.

When I asked him questions regarding how many sellers he talked to each week or how many real estate investor meetings he attended each month, he answered, “What’s the point?  The real estate market is dead!”

And there was David’s problem.  When the market collapsed, he essentially climbed into bed, pulled the covers over his head and decided not to come out again until the 2005 real estate market returned. Read More→

Doug ShaddixAtlanta REIA is pleased to announce that Attorney Doug Shaddix will be our special guest speaker at our Atlanta REIA West Meeting on Monday, May23rd at 6:30 PM at the Marietta Fish Market located at 3185 Canton Road in Marietta, GA. Many of you recall that Doug was on our Attorney Panel at our Atlanta REIA Main Meeting. Doug is back this month to talk all about asset protection, estate planning and buying with entities such as trusts, LLCs, corporations and more!

If you have significant assets of any type, you are a target for a lawsuit!  You need to know more about asset protection.  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.

In today’s litigious society, you need only one person unhappy with your business, one injured tenant, one disgruntled individual to ruin all that you have worked for by going to a plaintiff’s lawyer to see how they can get to everything you own.  If you are sued, you could lose your business, its equipment and vehicles, your personal automobiles, your home, your rental properties . . . anything that you own in your own name.
