Onsite Renovation GroupThe Tampa REIA Onsite Renovation Group is an exciting new educational and networking group that focuses on the acquisition, renovation and retail resale (fix & flip) or rental (buy & hold) of single or multi family residential homes in the Tampa Bay Area. The purpose of the group is to allow both new and experienced rehabbers and investors to meet, network, share knowledge and learn from each others successes and mistakes while getting “hands on” experience at real rehab properties.

The Onsite Renovation Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 1:00PM at an active renovation site, build site or rental property which will vary from month to month and be announced prior to the meeting on the Tampa REIA Calendar.

Come join us to learn how to rehab houses for big profits the right way… you will be glad you did!

Buying Houses “Subject-To”
in Today’s Real Estate Market
with Don DeRosa

Tampa REIA Members Can Attend for no charge.
Guests Can RSVP Online Now for $15 or Pay $20 at the Door.

Don DeRosa“My name is Don DeRosa. I am a real estate trainer, mentor and full-time real estate investor actively buying, selling and holding properties each month for huge profits and long-term cash flow. When I first started almost 22 years ago, I thought I wanted to be a wholesaler and flip contracts because I thought I needed a bunch of cash to buy and hold, or buy and rehab houses. I was like everyone else starting out in this business. I didn’t have lots of money, so I thought wholesaling was the easy way to go.

Boy was I wrong. Fortunately for me I was introduced to a buying technique called “Subject-To” by a friend. This is a technique where the Seller deeds the property over to you (you own it) but leaves the loan in place and you simply continue to make the existing payments (you don’t have to go to the bank and qualify).

Well I must say this technique changed my life. Within the first 30 days of learning the Subject-To technique I bought 4 houses for one dollar each (yes, you read that correctly) and I have been buying them that way ever since.

I no longer have to sell the “Golden Goose” to make lots of money. Today I am working furiously at buying properties “Subject-To” using the existing financing on the seller’s home instead of having to go to a bank or a hard money lender for funding. This allows me to buy multiple properties fast, without coming up with all the purchase funds on the front end.

Subject-To is the perfect strategy to use in today’s market where easy funding is not readily available for investors to buy pretty houses. Buying houses “Subject-To” the existing finances is by far the most powerful technique is real estate today. You can control and own an enormous amount of real estate with very little money. Understanding how to get sellers to finance your deals is the ultimate investment strategy.

If you’re a person who doesn’t have a lot of cash, or doesn’t have good credit or simply doesn’t want to use your credit, then you need to attend the upcoming Tampa REIA meeting where I will be teaching you how to effectively use this technique. Learning this technique may very well be a life changing event for you like it was for me.

Join me at the Tampa REIA Main Meeting on Thursday, February 14th from 5PM-9PM at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr. West in Tampa, FL and I will share with you, many of the Subject-To tools and techniques I use every day to create winning deals for myself as well as my buyers and sellers.

I will demonstrate how to apply these strategies, tools and techniques, and show you exactly how to evaluate the lead, determine your exit strategy, structure the deal, negotiate with the seller and get the paperwork done almost instantly and without any of the hard work you normally do to get your deals done.

By the end of the presentation, you’ll know how to buy houses…

  • Without using your own credit
  • Without having to sign personally on a note
  • Without having to qualify for a mortgage
  • Without having much money

Also…

  • How to recognize a “Subject To” opportunity and buy with little or no money!
  • How to evaluate any lead and decide whether this is a winner for you and how much money you’ll make before you make your offer
  • How to combine buying strategies and exit strategies – that work right now, in 2019
  • How to structure a deal in less than 10 minutes, so that you make a minimum of $20,000 on it, choosing from multiple purchase and exist strategies
  • How to determine the seller’s hot buttons so you can craft a deal the seller can’t refuse
  • How to use my proprietary tools to negotiate for you, so you never let your emotions talk you into making a bad deal!
  • And how to find all the money you need to do these deals so you have zero money out of your pocket.

Join me at the meeting as I really really drive these points home and give you all the Subject-To details you need to succeed in real estate investing. Once you are armed with my training and the tools, you will be able to do deals you never thought possible! RSVP NOW & DON’T MISS IT!
