Catherine McFarlandConquer your fears and take the guesswork out of buying houses “as-is”. Long time successful real estate investor, code enforcement and zoning officer, Catherine McFarland, will put your fears to rest.

More and more these days houses are being sold as is. Sellers and banks are not accepting contracts with the old protection contract clause of “subject to inspection” or “subject to approval of partner”. These days contract contingencies are rarely being accepted.

To get in the game, you have to be able to make a decision and commit to it. Do you really want to buy the house? And are you so confident that you can comfortably put your earnest money on the line?

Catherine will show you how you can quickly assess damages and repairs to a house and determine the estimated repair costs. She will address your valid concerns:

  • What is wrong with this property?
  • Am I losing all my rights?
  • The awful truth about the seller’s property disclosure statement.
  • Should I get a home inspection by a certified inspector? Pros and cons.
  • Don’t let your investment go down the toilet because you missed repairs.

If you are serious about real estate investing, you have to hear this. Presented by Catherine E. McFarland, Longtime Successful Investor & Certified Housing Inspector, Certified Inspector Southern Building Code Congress, International Property Maintenance Inspector, Housing Inspector, Legal Aspects of Code Enforcement.

Come join us at the Atlanta REIA West Meeting on Monday, April 25th from 6:30 to 9 PM at the Cherokee Cattle Company at 2710 Canton Road, Marietta, GA (map).
