Your Not So Secret Weapon That You Must Maximize!
with Frank Iglesias

Frank IglesiasJoin us at the Marketing Madness Event on Thursday, September 24th at 7PM ET ONLINE via Zoom Webinar with Frank Iglesias who will be discussing “Networking – Your Not So Secret Weapon That You Must Maximize” to reach buyers, sellers, funders, partners and anyone else you need on your dream team.

Networking, simple right? Everyone knows how to talk to people right? Nothing could be further from the truth. Reality is we go to school for 13 years to get a high school degree and maybe another 4-10 to get one or numerous college degrees and still may not know how to network effectively. Yet networking is one of the most powerful tools at your fingertips every single day.

Yet, very few people know how to use it, much less use it effectively. This presentation is to talk about people and how networking with others effectively. This all too often unused form of marketing has the ability to change the impact your business can make every day.

Frank will discuss…

  • It’s all about the relationship
  • Stop asking for so much stuff all the time! Give instead!
  • Why referrals stink and introductions are great
  • Why taking someone out to lunch is the worst thing you could offer them.
  • Thinking long term in every deal conversation you have
  • Answers to your questions and a whole lot more!

You do not want to miss this session! Everyone talks about the house needs this much work and the ARV and the MAO, blah, blah, blah. Yet that only counts for no more than 20% of what matters in every transaction. 80%+ is about the people, the people, the people and if you know how to network, you can get a lot of people on your side. Isn’t that what you want?

Register Now and join us on the webinar and we’ll discuss how to do all of this and more!

on Short-Term Rentals
with Richard Munroe
ONLINE WEBINAR at AREIA.us/BIG

Richard MunroeJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on Monday, September 21st at 7PM ONLINE at http://AREIA.us/BIG for an Evening with a Real Estate Expert with special guest, Richard Munroe who will be taking questions regarding Short-Term Rentals in the age of Covid and the “new normal” we are currently living through.

We’ve seen moratoriums on short-term renteals in both Georgia and Florida when Covid first hit. Corporate travel and tourism has been down for months as more and more people are working from home and traveling less. Many hotels are still at 10 – 20% occupancy.

You may know some fellow investors whose short-term rentals were wiped out by Covid while others while others are prospering and building their inventory as fast as they can.

Richard Munroe is a Short-Term Rental Investor and leader of our Short-Term Rental Owners Networking Group (STRONG), and he hasn’t missed a beat. He is actively picking up short-term rental properties as fast as he can.

Join us on Monday evening ONLINE at http://AREIA.us/BIG and learn the pros and cons and do’s and don’ts of controlling and/or owning short-term rentals. Find out what’s working and what’s not in the short-term rental market. Is it time to get in or get out? RSVP NOW and get your questions ready and come join us for the webinar!

Don’t Miss This All Day Workshop

Doubletree on Tampa Bay

& ONLINE for Those Who Can’t Attend In Person

Don DeRosaWhen it comes to running a profitable real estate investing business, the name of the game has always been about knowing your numbers and what makes a deal profitable or not. That will especially be true in the upcoming months when our uncertain economy begins to change. And we’ve already seen many changes for labor and materials since Covid-19 hit. Are you accounting for these changes when you run your numbers?

You’ve probably heard the saying… “You make your money when you buy and you get paid when you sell”. This means YOU MUST KNOW YOUR NUMBERS BEFORE YOU BUY SO THAT YOU WILL GET PAID WHEN YOU SELL!

So when it comes to knowing your numbers…

  • Do you know how to really determine if you are buying a good deal or not?
  • Do you know if you’re paying too much?
  • Do you know how much profit you’re going to make?
  • Do you know how to do all of your due diligence before you buy and what to look for?
  • Do you know how to accurately determine the AS-IS value of an ugly house, especially now?
  • Do you know After Repair Value (ARV) of a property for a buy and hold vs a fix and flip (or a high end rehab vs a low end rehab)?
  • Do you know how to accurately determine repairs and estimate repair costs before you buy, especially now that building materials have skyrocketed and contractors are extremely busy?
  • Are you totally comfortable using the numbers your buyer or sellers give you when working a deal?
  • Do you know how to quickly run the numbers like a pro?
  • Do you know the other types of due diligence you must do before you ever close on a deal?

If you answered “NO” to any of these questions, unfortunately you may be going to a real life, expensive, school of hard knocks seminar very soon if your not extremely careful!

Instead of learning these valuable due diligence skills the hard and expensive way, be sure to attend the upcoming, highly affordable, Due Diligence Workshop with Don DeRosa on Saturday, September 12th, 2020 from 9AM to 5PM at the Doubletree Suites located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr West in Tampa, FL and Online via Zoom Webinar for those who cannot attend in person.

At this Workshop, You will Learn:

  • How to become a transaction engineer
  • How to determine the different types of property values and why there are two different ARV’s for every property
  • Using different property valuation models
  • Reliable sources of “comparable” information data
  • How to find and run comparables
  • How to decide which comparables to use and which to ignore
  • How to be a problem solver to create win-win deals for everyone
  • How to take a lead and come up with multiple ways to structure the deal
  • How to use your computer or mobile device to do your due diligence
  • 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 know the differences with a property’s rental income and it’s value
  • Determining how much an investor should pay for a property
  • Identifying the target market (buyers) for the property
  • How to utilize public and near public information
  • How to inspect the property
  • How to determine what kinds of repairs are needed based on your exit strategy
  • How to estimate the costs of repairs based on your exit strategy especially now that building materials are climbing due to the supply and demand of the Covid-19 pandemic
  • How to determine if a lead is a deal or no deal
  • Checking title and solving title flaws
  • Pitfalls to Avoid
  • All this, answers to your questions & so much more!

Turning Today’s Rising Mortgage Delinquencies Into Tomorrow’s Real Estate Fortunes
Learn the Secret to Buying REOs Before They Hit MLS, Flipping Some for Quick Cash & Goldmining Others with Rent Smart Lease Purchases
with Special Guest, Andy Heller
Atlanta REIA, Tampa REIA, Savannah REIA & Chattanooga REIA Members Who RSVP Online Can Attend at NO CHARGE. Non-Members for $20.
Register at AREIA.us/Online.

Real Estate in this country can be purchased for PENNIES ON THE DOLLAR for investors who know how to find them, how to fund the purchases, and how to sell or lease the properties when purchased. Learn how to be one of those investors at Atlanta REIA!

Mortgage delinquencies are peaking now, just like they did back in 2007 and 2008. Remember how that led to a spike in REOs, and investors who were prepared made hundreds of thousands of dollars acquiring properties for pennies on the dollar in 2009 and 2010? We are seeing similar patterns once again today!

Over the next 12 – 24 months real estate investors who are prepared for this, who know where and how to find REOs, how to finance these purchases, how to flip and lease purchase them, will be in a position to make hundreds of thousands of dollars in a generational opportunity. If you can devote 2-4 hours per week to looking for properties, we can show you how to make it happen.

Andy HellerThe “Buy Low, Rent Smart, Sell High” investment strategy was featured by Fortune Magazine. Come and learn why at the upcoming Atlanta REIA Online Webinar on Monday, September 14th from 6PM – 9PM with Special Guest Speaker, Andy Heller!

Join us at Atlanta REIA and you will learn how to buy properties for pennies on the dollar and marketing strategies for wholesaling, flipping, and holding the properties once purchased.

  • What type of properties to buy, residential and commercial
  • How to find the foreclosures BEFORE they are listed by real estate agents (on MLS)
  • Marketing your properties to flip and create instant cash
  • Marketing your properties to hold and create a nest egg for your future
  • Selling your properties without discounting or using a real estate agent

A few examples of student success stories that Andy gives are:

  • Donald Kung made $15,000 on his first REO, wholesaling it without using any of his own money
  • John and Michelle Authement purchased their first bank-owned foreclosure, and had it lease/purchased 2 HOURS AFTER closing!
  • Hans van der Kolk made $168,000 in just 4 months buying REOs, flipping two properties and lease optioning a 3rd.
  • Jim Kincer is making $500/month on his first lease/purchase
  • Sophie Ravenel purchased her first foreclosure worth $118,000 for just $55,000, 50 cents on the dollar

Many experts, such as Andy, are predicting the real estate opportunity of a lifetime headed our way. Register to Attend Now and come learn from the nation’s leading expert on REOs and Lease Options! We hope to see you there!
