There is an exciting new shared economy that has created a huge opportunity in real estate to increase your returns and profit, two to three times the regular rental amount of a traditional lease.

The short-term rental model keeps your property in better shape with the average stay of each guest limited to 3-4 days with professional cleanings and inspections in between each stay.

The cycle of evictions and minor rehabs in between each tenant is no longer an issue, along with, less wear and tear on the appliances, as most guests are eating out at local restaurants.

Richard MunroeMy name is Richard Munroe. On Monday, November 11th from 5PM to 9PM at the Richard Munroe located at 3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA , I will cover how to approach the market analysis and develop a conservative estimate of the short-term rental revenue based on the average nightly rate and the monthly occupancy percentage.

One of the main reasons for this industry’s growth and success is the Air Bnb platform. I will provide an introduction and overview of the platform from a host’s perspective. We will also cover the multiple ways to get started and how to navigate through all the new ordinances and laws on the city, county and state level.

Join me and we will discuss…

  • Shared Economy
  • Market Analysis
  • Air BNB Platform
  • Property Options
  • Legislative Efforts
  • Answers to your questions
  • And more!

RSVP NOW and come learn more about the lucrative opportunity that short-term rentals have to offer!

That all ended after I accidentally fell into the well guarded tax lien industry. Did you know tax liens are by far one of the lowest entry price points into real estate investing?

And now my mission is to help one thousand families duplicate my success, creating financial freedom through tax liens.

Join me at Atlanta REIA’s Beginners Investing Group as I walk you through an Introduction to tax liens.

Here’s what we will discuss…

  • GA Tax Lien Process Overview
  • The difference between tax liens, tax lien certificates, and tax deeds
  • Tax lien type by state
  • Interest rate by state
  • How you can own real estate free and clear
  • Where to find funding to purchase tax liens
  • Participate in mock auctions
  • Answers to your questions and MORE!

And we will conduct our infamous Mock Auctions. Bring your money bags and be ready to bid! You will get a chance to see how auctions are conducted.

Flipping Gwinnett - Atlanta REIA East

NEW “Flipping Gwinnett” Group
How to Determine Repair Costs Before You Buy
Tues, Nov 19th at 6:30PM
We Buy Ugly Houses Office
2300 W Park Pl. Blvd, Suite 110
Stone Mountain, GA
Atlanta REIA Members Can Attend at No Charge.
Guests Pay $10 Online or $10 at the Door. RSVP Now!

Scott SekulowAtlanta REIA EastThe Atlanta REIA East Monthly Meeting, aka “Flipping Gwinnett” is a new Atlanta REIA educational and networking subgroup lead by Scott “The Flipping Rabbi” Sekulow and is held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM at Scott’s We Buy Ugly Houses Office located at 2300 W Park Pl. Blvd, Suite 110 in Stone Mountain, GA.

In the real estate investing business, we always say “You make your money when you buy and you get paid when you sell.” In other words, you have to buy right in order to get paid well when you sell in this business.

In order to buy right, you have to know your numbers. The two big numbers you need to know to put a house under contract is 1) the value of the property (As-is Value vs After Repair Value) and 2) the estimated repair costs.

A few months ago, we talked about determining property value at Flipping Gwinnett. This month we are going to talk about how we quickly estimate the repairs so we can get a house under contract quickly. Once we get the contract, we can do our due diligence, especially if we are going to rehab the house, do a scope of work and more accurately determine the repairs.

This Month’s Panelists
Scott Sekulow Don DeRosa Christine Griffin Roger Blankenship
Scott Sekulow Don DeRosa Christine Griffin Roger Blankenship

At this meeting, we are having an All-Star Panel of Rehabbers & Wholesalers with Scott Sekulow, Don DeRosa, Christine Griffin and Roger Blankenship who will discuss “How to Determine Repair Costs Before You Buy”. Don and Chrissy do nice, high cost, HGTV type rehabs while Scott and Roger to much more affordable, lower cost rehabs.

Join us at the meeting and these 4 will teach you their formulas for how they quickly determine repair costs before and after they get a house under contract. Come join us to learn more!

PLEASE NOTE: Atlanta REIA Members can attend at no charge with a valid membership card. Non-Members pay $10 at the door.

Sat, November 23rd at 9AM – Atlanta, GA
Atlanta REIA Presents:
Expert Negotiating Tactics
The Ultimate 1 Day Workshop on How to Easily Negotiate with Sellers to Create Win-Win Situations!
A Full Day Workshop with Don DeRosa
Saturday, November 23rd from 9AM – 5PM
3125 Presidential Pkwy, Atlanta, GA

“I like to think of sales as the ability to gracefully persuade, not manipulate, a person or persons into a win-win situation.”” ~ Bo Bennett

Don DeRosaWas your stomach tied up in knots as you walked in to your first deal? Mine was! Have you done enough deals so you feel comfortable negotiating? Or does it still give you butterflies? How would you like some tips to make negotiations much easier? To get that bargain-basement price, and still meet your seller’s needs? Then this upcoming Expert Negotiating Tactics Workshop on Saturday, November 23rd is for you!

There’s no real mystery to negotiating. We do it every day, in every relationship. Your family negotiates every time you decide what to watch on TV. You negotiate with your spouse every time you figure out who is going to pick up the kids from school. You’re already doing it you just don’t realize it. But for some reason when people say the word “negotiation” people get nervous.

Well, for one thing, negotiation is a form of sales. In other words, buying is selling. Because when you make an offer on a house, you’re hoping to sell your offer to the other side. And being a salesperson scares a lot of people.

If you are lacking this confidence as an investor then this might be the most important workshop you attend all year. In order to be an expert negotiator, you need to make sure you are:

  • Meeting the seller’s needs
  • Building rapport with the seller
  • Believing in your offer
  • Providing the seller with an objective basis for your offer
  • Overcoming the seller’s objections

Negotiating does not have to be something that makes you shudder. After this workshop, you will feel confident and have the knowledge and tools at your disposal to be able to walk into any negotiation feeling fully prepared to create a win-win deal.

At this workshop, you will learn about…

  • 3 variables to every negotiation
  • How to recognize non-verbal clues and use them to your advantage
  • How to plan and gather information for successful negotiations
  • How to use state of the art tools to do all your negotiating for you
  • How to overcome all seller objections when buying a house
  • How to create win-win deals so that everyone leaves happy
  • And much, much more!

Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn how to be an expert real estate deal negotiator!

Register Now!

PLEASE NOTE: Location and schedule subject to change. Pricing is per person. No refunds 5 days prior to event. Price will increase after early registration special expires.

34 Steps to Renovating
a Property!

with Ramon Tookes
Mon, October 28th at 6:30PM
Cherokee Cattle Company
2710 Canton Rd, Marietta, GA

No Charge for Atlanta REIA Members, Guests $10 at the Door.

Ramon TookesPlease be sure to join us at the Atlanta REIA West Meeting at 6:00pm on Monday, October 28th at The Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta with Ramon Tookes who will be discussing “34 Steps to Renovating a Property!”

One of the primary fears of real estate investing, particularly fixing and flipping, is managing renovations. “How will I get it done? How will I not lose money? How do I know a good contractor from a not so good contractor?” These questions hold many investors back from fixing and flipping and this should not be the case!

In his presentation, Ramon Tookes, who is a seasoned investor with 24+ years experience, author, coach, trainer and wealth builder, will help you to overcome those fears by providing you with 34 steps to successfully renovate and build new construction properties.

Don’t get tripped up by missing or skipping a step or by having to find out what you didn’t know the hard way. Ramon has probably made or encountered every mistake possible, so take advantage of his wealth of knowledge, expertise, and learn from his mis-steps so that you can create a seamless system for your investing business!

Join Ramon at the Atlanta REIA West Meeting at 6:00pm on Monday, October 28th at The Cherokee Cattle Company located at 2710 Canton Rd in Marietta and learn the steps necessary to fix and flip like a pro!

Atlanta REIA Members can attend for no charge and Not-Yet Members for $10.00. Show up at 6:00 PM to eat and network before the meeting officially starts at 7:00 PM. Buying your own meal is optional but highly recommended and greatly appreciated since the Cherokee Cattle Company allows us to use their event room.
