How Many Leads Do You Need?

Posted on August 1, 2015 by

How many times does your phone need to ring to make a deal? Well, the more rings you have, the more possibilities there are, right? But here is the catch: you don’t want just any calls. You want quality calls. It doesn’t matter how many calls you get if they aren’t ones that are going to lead to getting paid.

You may have heard real estate gurus telling you how to get that phone to ring. But I can show you how to get the phone to ring so that when you answer, you’ll have a potential good deal on the other end.

First, quality calls will decrease your overhead. I typically spend $1000 per closing on marketing. In the past, I bought the latest in high tech products which were supposed to send me 10 leads per day. The problem was that, while the leads were plentiful, the number that actually worked was less than I wanted.

You see, I want to make the time that I spend worth it. I want sellers who call me so ready to sell that I can barely finish saying, “Hi, this is Russ. How may I help you?” And I want them to say, ” I heard you were the best in the Atlanta area, you pay a fair price, you are respectful, and you do what you say you are going to do. I don’t care what you offer me, I will take it because I know you will be fair. I know you can close in 30 days. I trust you.”

How can YOU get these kinds of calls? I’m about to tell you. Read More→

This month I believe what I will be sharing with you can be very important to you financially as well as to build your financial freedom faster and easier. Last month I questioned why all of the so-called Guru’s are pitching how everyone should be wholesaling properties to build wealth. From my own experience as I said last month, if all you do is wholesale deals you have a job. This month I want to explain what I have experienced over the years doing this type of deal and what I have learned that keeps my buyers clamoring for more deals on a continual basis. The reason I decided to write about this subject is because without the practical knowledge of how to structure your wholesale deals, it is going to be more difficult to pass those deals along to other investors. I hope this information will open your eyes to the real world and what it takes to be more profitable.

Last month I left off by saying, if you always pay too much for the properties you wholesale, the seasoned investors aren’t going to be interested in the properties you find and you will be forced to sell or assign the purchase agreement to other people who don’t know what they should pay. This is because those people don’t really understand how to figure the numbers and once they do figure out they paid too much, it only stands to reason that they won’t want to buy more properties from you. Once word gets out you are asking too much and it will be assumed you don’t know what you are doing and investors will avoid you like the plague. Everyone wants to make an adequate profit from every deal they do or they won’t do the deal. You must realize that there are other ways to profit from real estate other than being a wholesaler.

Ok, I admit it. I use four-letter words. A lot. Some of these four-letter words are the kind you may not like to hear if you’re a fine, upstanding person of high moral fiber. Oh well.

The OTHER four-letter words I use are awesome, and if you know how to utilize them properly, they can make you super RICH!  Best of all, you can say THESE four-letter words in ANY crowd, around anyone, without having to worry about getting slapped or getting the evil eye.

So, without any further delay, I’d like to share a short list of some of my favorite four-letter words that can make you rich & are safe to say around women, kids, and Baptists. ;)

I’ll also present these words in a way that mostly applies to real estate, but I promise you that what you’re about to learn here will apply to ALL areas of your life where you want to have success!

FAIR enough? (hey! That was a four-letter word already!)  Here we go…

The first word on the list is an F-Word: FLIP. Read More→

No Seller Wants Cash – EVER!

Posted on August 1, 2015 by

Just got a call from a realtor. She represents a homeowner who needs a quick sale. The realtor said, “Bill, my client will only consider an all-cash offer. We’re not interested in any of your creative razzle-dazzle deal structures, understand?”

Kim and I get a lot of calls like this. I’ve learned not to say, “No seller wants cash – EVER – ya dingbat!” Saying such would ruin the relationship and destroy the possibility of meeting face-to-face with the seller.

So what do you think? Do sellers really want cash or could I possibly be right?

In this situation, what if I immediately agreed to pay the seller’s $80,000 asking price – in cash? There’s only one condition: The seller must put the $80,000 on her kitchen table, cover it with plastic wrap, and agree that once a month the seller, realtor and I will get together and marvel at the big stack of money.

Sure, this is a silly stipulation that no seller would agree to. But why – since the seller is getting exactly what she wants – wouldn’t she agree to it? Think hard on this. It’s an important question to contemplate! Read More→

Many of us are aware of the potential for real estate to function within our portfolio. Not only do we believe in real estate as an investment, but we know that over time, it tends to go up in value – there is, after all, only so much land to go around! But what happens when you incorporate real estate into your retirement portfolio? Do the rules change when you’re running a Real Estate IRA?

Truthfully, many of the same principles of real estate hold true when you’re investing in real estate from within a Real Estate IRA. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some other things to be aware of – this is, after all, a different type of investment account.

Even so, you’ll find that investing in real estate through a Real Estate IRA isn’t only intuitive, but can be just as intuitive as investing in real estate from a “general investment” perspective. We’ve put together three “Golden Rules” here to not only demonstrate some of the similarities but some of the differences in investing in real estate for short-term growth and investing in real estate for retirement: Read More→

Last month I wrote about how you could use the right of rescission as a silver bullet to stop a foreclosure in its tracks. Once you drop a notice of rescission in the mail, your loan has been nullified as a matter of law and the bank must either comply with the rescission or prove within 20 days that they have the right to enforce the note. Well, over the last few weeks I have been seeing more and more from the banks that the right of rescission has them on their heels. The banks are sending their lawyers around their offices explaining exactly how rescission leaves them vulnerable.

The main point that the lawyers are making to the banks is that mailing in a notice of rescission is all it takes to cancel a borrower’s loan, note, and mortgage. The notice is effective from the moment it is dropped in the mail as an act of law. This was written specifically into the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) so that homeowners wouldn’t have to use an attorney to act on their behalf, thus restricting the remedies provided by TILA to borrowers who can afford an attorney. While the note is canceled immediately as soon as the notice is dropped in the mail, the bank has 20 days from the date of receipt to respond. This is a good reason to send the notice with return receipt requested. This provides you with proof of the exact date the notice of rescission was received. Read More→

Wholesalers send me deals daily but I have started to notice that many of these wholesalers are wholesaling another wholesaler’s property. Before proceeding, I want to be clear that I have no issue with this but there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it. Also, understand that if a buyer/investor receives the same property from multiple sellers he/she will contact the seller with the best price. Wouldn’t you? Keep in mind that you did nothing to acquire this property. You merely sent it out to a buyers list you put together, which with today’s technology takes only a few minutes. So what should you avoid and what should you do when wholesaling a wholesale?

Let’s list a few of the major DON’TS:

  • Don’t wholesale another wholesaler’s property without permission. It is best to ask and establish a long working relationship with that wholesaler/seller. Just imagine if you end up having a buyer for the property but the wholesaler/seller has sold it or maybe he/she is not interested in working with you. It is best to get all this out of the way first.
  • Don’t add on a ridiculous fee to the price if it is not justified. The last thing you want to do is be known as the wholesaler who markets deals with very little to no potential profit. What’s worse is if the property is being shopped by multiple wholesalers in the market area and your price is the highest.
  • Don’t waste time marketing another wholesaler’s “deal” until you have seen a contract. Many times a wholesaler will claim to have a deal under contract but in reality he/she is still just waiting for it to be executed. Pre-marking is fine but don’t spend too much time on it until you see a contract.
  • Don’t contact the original seller of the property. If you run across the seller at the property and want to know more about the condition of the property or the neighborhood that is fine. However, do not discuss price, closing dates, mention wholesaling, etc. These are items you discuss with the wholesaler/seller you are working with. The last thing you want to do is jeopardize another person’s contract or be accused of trying to go around the other wholesaler to contract the property yourself.

Have you ever heard the expression, “you make all your money in real estate the day you buy?” Well, guess what: at Monday’s meeting, you’ll learn that…

When You Wholesale Real Estate,
You Make Your Money—In Cash—BEFORE You Buy!

Vena Jones-CoxSounds too good to be true, but our guest speaker, Vena Jones-Cox, does it about 40 times a year. Join us, and you’ll learn:

Well, it’s absolutely true, and it means that finding bargain properties is probably THE most important skill any real estate investor ever learns.

If you can consistently find sellers who NEED—not want, NEED– to sell their homes, even if it means that they take pennies on the dollar, you’ll have a life full of great deals and the money that they make. If you can’t find these sellers, you literally can’t make money investing in real estate.

  • How to identify the right properties right in your own back yard that you can wholesale for a $5,000-$10,000 profit in the next 30 days
  • What to offer for these properties, so they sell fast and get you cash BEFORE the closing
  • How to find and groom buyers for your deals      
  • And lots more!

It’s a great topic, a great meeting, and a great presenter, so mark your calendar and plan to attend! We’ll see you there.

BTW, Don’t forget Vena’s Saturday August 8th workshop on Advanced Wholesaling & Marketing Strategies. You can get more information or register at!

Vena Jones-CoxOur mission here at Atlanta REIA is to bring you the very best in down-to-earth, usable, money-making real estate information in the country at each and every meeting. And at our August 3rd meeting, we’ve outdone ourselves!

 See, we’ve arranged for Vena Jones-Cox to come all the way from Cincinnati, Ohio to share the wholesaling strategies that will make you $5,000-$10,000 per deal, in today’s market, with no cash or credit.

We’re thrilled to have Vena—she’s one of the most in-demand experts in the country. In addition to investing in real estate full-time since 1989, she’s been featured in Smart Money Magazine, Reader’s Digest, USA Today, Money, and dozens of other books and publications, and has taught literally thousands of regular folks all over the country how to achieve their financial goals through real estate investing.

Best of all, Vena is a real-life investor who explains exactly, step-by-step, how to make money in real estate. At our August meeting, she’s going to tell us how she puts a property under contract each week and then sells the CONTRACT for a $5-$10K profit without ever buying the property—and how you can, too.

The meeting is at the usual location, Atlanta Unity located at 3597 Parkway Lane in Norcross, GA at 5:00 pm. We’ll see you there!

BTW, Vena is also joining us for an all-day workshop on Saturday, August 8th where she’ll teach us all about Wholesaling Business & Marketing.

Atlanta REIA Wild Wild West

Explode Your Business Now!
Do More Deals by Working Less!

with Frank Iglesias
July 27th, 6:30PM, Cherokee Cattle Company
2710 Canton Rd, Marietta, GA

Atlanta REIA Membes Please RSVP on
Atlanta REIA Members Please RSVP on
if you have a meetup account.

Frank IglesiasThis month we have a very special treat for you!  Whether you are new to real estate, getting back in, or building your business and working more than you’d like to, you NEED to be at this month’s Wild West Event!  Our guest speaker Frank Iglesias is the real deal. He’s currently running a very successful real estate business, and he’s built it so that it doesn’t suck up all his time!  As a result, he’s able to enjoy the lifestyle that most real estate investors only dream about.  How?  By effectively leveraging his time!

Join us at the Wild West Event on Monday July 27 at the Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta, as Frank shares with us his secrets on how he was able to grow his business, make more ca$h, do more deals, and buy more houses by using VA’s!  If you have been around real estate for any length of time, you’ve probably heard about Virtual Assistants, or “VAs” for short.  Sounds sexy, but how can you use them effectively?  Recently, Frank gave a talk and asked the audience what came to their minds when he said the term ‘Virtual Assistant’.  The answers were, like almost any other time he’s asked:  1) International, 2) Cheap, 3) Hard to Understand, 4) Do busy work tasks.  No wonder more people don’t leverage this awesome opportunity to its capacity–the mindset is not one for success before the relationship even begins!

Join us at the Wild West on Monday July 27, when Frank will break this mold by discussing several key points, including:

  • Are VAs your team membersor are they just doing tasks?
  • Hiring and training VAs to make decisions for you
  • How VAs fit into the 80/20 rule, when leveraged properly, so you get your time back

Reality is, running a business does take some work, but it does not have to be overly complicated, time consuming or difficult.  It does, however, require preparation, planning and ultimately, systems.  It won’t happen until you first decide to Stop Doing It All Yourself.

What you will learn:  Frank will cover a lot of ground on how VAs play a vital part of his thriving real estate business, including:

  • Scaling your business using VAs
  • Differences between local and virtual help
  • Unleashing the right VAs to run your day to day for you so you can focus on growth
  • The principals his team uses to look at over 100 deals every single week and cherry pick what makes sense
  • And Much, Much, More!

Bottom line, it’s competitive out there with the market picking up speed and more investors vying for the same deals. To make more money at a faster pace requires efficiency and speed. Having the right team in place is critical to achieving this successfully. Having just one helping hand daily can make a huge impact on your growth. VAs can help you accomplish this with greatly reduced costs, if done properly. So mark your calendars now and get ready for an action packed evening at the Wild West Event on Monday July 27! Bring your questions and take lots of notes so you too can Stop Doing It All Yourself! See you there!

Creative Financing Solutions for Your Real Estate Business
with Special Guest, Robert Mulcahy

200 Market Place Connector, Peachtree City, GA

Robert MulcahyYou are all in for a special treat this month at the Peachtree City EPIC Group. Robert Mulcahy is going to be our guest speaker and will be teaching us about creative financing solutions for today’s real estate investors. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 28th at 6:30PM at the Green Ginger Asian Fusion Restaurant located at 200 Market Place Connector in Peachtree City, GA. This will be a great opportunity for you to network with other like-minded investors and to create a relationship with a company who can assist you with your financing needs.

In 2013, approximately 14.9 million single family homes were occupied by renters, which is a 26% increase since before the market crash in 2006. Of all the rental inventory, 53% are 1-4 unit properties. With a 2% decrease in overall home ownership, that creates an additional 2.5 million renters. (Source: National Multifamily Housing Council & U.S. Census Bureau. Updated 9/2014) With these statistics, it does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that now is a great time to stock up on rental properties, but more properties means more cash needed to buy them.

Robert Mulcahy with Angel Oak Prime Bridge, LLC will show you the solutions to those financial problems. He will show you…

  • How best to use leverage & financing to increase your investment business
  • How to understand and access financing
  • An overview of new lending programs available specifically for investors
  • How to finance up to 25 properties at a time
  • Programs that use the property income to qualifyand not your personal incom
  • How to pull cash out of properties
  • And so much more!

If you are involved in any type of real estate transaction needing funding, you won’t want to miss connecting with Robert and his company. He has the ability to give you the freedom you need to purchase as many properties as you desire. Some highlights of investor loan programs available are:

  • No minimum down payment (Borrow up to 100% of the total project costs, subject to 65% of the After Repaired Value)
  • Landlord program – Convert renovation loans to permanent 30 year mortgages using the appraised value (With no seasoning on the appraised value)
  • Loans for renovation and new construction
  • Straight purchase or renovation loans
  • Cash out loans
  • Loans in the name of businesses
  • Works with all credit scenarios
  • Loans to foreign nationals

Come on out on Tuesday, July 28th. You are sure to meet some great individuals and make lasting connections that will help propel your business in the right direction. We look forward to seeing you there!
