Making Money Without Making Money! The Wealth Building Magic of Rental Real Estate.

Roger Herring43% or MORE! That’s how much of YOUR INCOME you could give back to the government! Once you have MADE the money, wouldn’t it be great to KEEP IT? There’s a way and it is perfect for you!

You got into real estate because it is big money and awesome tax breaks. Then you go to your accountant at tax time and you find out you owe a whole pile of money! What happened to the tax breaks? They are plenty of tax breaks for real estate, but you don’t qualify because you’re in the wrong kind of real estate or only doing real estate one way.

When people think of real estate investment, they’re often thinking about flipping or wholesaling property. After all its fast and its sexy. The problem is these activities generate ordinary income, the most taxed income there is! How do you shelter it? The answer is traditional rental properties!

It is no secret that most investors have built real long-term wealth using traditional rentals. Why does it work? Because rentals have extremely favorable tax treatment: We get to reduce income now. We get preferential treatment on sales. We can even defer our gains indefinitely.

Come to the Atlanta REIA Main Meeting on Monday, January 13th and let me show you why I have clients that have PAID NO TAX in over 10 years! I call it “Making Money Without Making Money.”

Join me at Atlanta REIA and you will learn:

  • The Power of the IRS Designation Real Estate Professional
  • The Phantom Loss: What it is and how we create it
  • Depreciation Strategy: The landlord’s best friend
  • Cost Segregation Strategies
  • Using 1031 exchanges
  • Other People’s Money-Correctly using leverage

It’s your MONEY. Come out on Monday, January 13th from 5PM to 9PM at the Atlanta REIA Monthly Meeting at 3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA and let me show you how to protect it from the TAXMAN!

We can only pitch a limited number of deals to the Sharks, so the deals that don’t get pitched to the Sharks can be pitched during the “Rapid Fire, Deal Pitch Fest” after the conclusion of the Shark Tank panel.

Be sure to bring your contracts and plenty of business cards and flyers for our flyer table and enough for anyone who wants one. You can post your properties to our Atlanta Shark Tank Facebook Group and other Facebook Groups as well throughout the month.

INVESTORS, if you’re looking for a deal to purchase to fix and flip or to buy and hold, come prepared to write contracts and put down any necessary earnest money deposits. There will be plenty of deals being pitched to the Sharks and during the “Rapid Fire, Deal Pitch Fest”. If a deal is not already taken, all you have to to is decide if it is a “Deal” or “No Deal” and take action!

VENDORS, Reserve a Vendor Table for as little as $25, come check us out and and come prepared to meet lots of investors who are looking to do business with you. Vendor tables are cocktail tables that are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Onsite Renovation Group

The Onsite Renovation Group
Come See Stephen’s Latest Rehab Project in Atlanta!
Tues, Dec 3rd at NOON
2586 Caladium Dr NE, Atlanta, GA
Hands-On Learning “Onsite” at Real
Atlanta Area Renovation Projects
Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge.
Guests Pay $15 Online or $20 at the Door. RSVP Now!

Stephen JonesPlease join us on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019 at NOON for the Atlanta REIA Onsite Renovation Group (ORG) to learn all about finding, funding, fixing and flipping houses for big profits right here in the metro Atlanta area. This month’s rehab project is located at 2586 Caladium Dr NE, Atlanta, GA being managed by Stephen Jones.

This property is a deteriorated 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath, brick, 2-story house on a basement. In addition to the massive clean-out, there are multiple water leaks, animal penetrations and mold. Stephen purchased the property on November 8th for $290k, with $250k in owner financing at 8.5%.

Onsite PropertyStephen plans to keep the 4 bedrooms upstairs, but expand the master suite to have a larger bathroom and walk-in-closet, by moving the existing hall full bath to the end of the hall between 2 bedrooms. He also plans to create a laundry closet to the left of the stair landing.

On the main level, Stephen is planning to open the non-structural walls between the den and kitchen, and the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen will be moved to the existing dining room and the existing kitchen will become the dining room. The current formal living room will become a fifth bedroom, and a mudroom and full bath will be built in the space to the left of the front door that is currently an office.

Since the drainage exits the house at waist-height, creating a full bath in the basement would be very expensive, so he will simply finish half the basement into an entertaining space.

The existing sunroom will be divided in two: One half will remain heated/cooled space, the other a screen porch, with a new deck built off of that screen porch.

All windows and doors will be updated; along with all systems and mechanicals. The hardwoods will be repaired where needed and refinished, a new roof put on, and the exterior lot cleared of trees and re-sodded.

RSVP NOW and come join us at the Onsite Renovation Group to see this property before the rehab begins and see it again when it’s finished!
