Building Wealth Online Workshop

A BRAND NEW REI Workshop…
Building Wealth
How To Buy Houses without Banks, Credit or Bundles of Cash
Using Subject-To, Wrap Around Mortgages & Sandwich Leases
A Full Day Online Workshop
with Don DeRosa
Register Now for the Online Workshop

Don DeRosaDo you remember playing musical chairs as a kid? The basic premiss is you always have one less chair than you have people and someone plays the music while everyone walks around the chairs and when the music stops, everyone rushes to an empty chair and the one left standing without a chair is out.

Well, real estate is a lot like that. As long as the real estate market is good (Hot) and the music is playing, everyone is happy. In fact most people don’t ever think about when the music is going to stop. But let’s get REAL for a moment. Real estate goes in cycles. History tells us that about every 10 years we transition from a Seller’s Market to a Buyer’s Market.

So what does that mean? That means that our real estate market has been going gang busters for over 10 year now. It is time for a historical shift in the cycle. No-one ever knows when or believes it is going to happen, but yet it always does. So, do you want to play musical chairs and wait until the music stops and possibly be left without a chair or do you want to prepare yourself for eventual change?

When I make this analogy, I am typically talking about the investors that buy traditionally and not creatively. The secret to becoming “recession proof” is your ability to buy and sell in ANY market using creative techniques where you don’t need banks, you don’t need credit and you don’t need lots of money. I’m talking about the getting Sellers to give you the deed to their property so you won’t need banks, credit or bundles of cash.

On Saturday, Oct 24th,I will be teaching a NEW Seminar and combining some of the oldest and most powerful techniques in real estate today, but in a new way. At this event, you will learn how to locate leads, screen them and negotiate using simple tools that don’t cost a lot of money or time.

If you really want to make money in real estate, then don’t do what everyone else is doing. Do something that only a few people know how to do successfully. Buy on owner finance using techniques like “Subject to”, Wrap Around Mortgages and sandwich lease options. I will show you how to own ANY house, regardless of price, even if you have no money (or don’t want to use it) or credit. I will prepare you for when the music stops, so you are guaranteed to have a chair.

Join me and you will learn:

  • How to Find These Diamonds in the Rough
  • How to Evaluate Them Quickly
  • How to Write Multiple Offers in Minutes
  • What to say to the homeowner to get them to say YES
  • What paperwork is needed for “Subject to”, Wraps and Sandwich Lease Options
  • How to protect yourself
  • How to find the money
  • And a whole lot more…

If you are wanting to learn how to invest in real estate, but don’t know where to begin, how to really crank things up or don’t want to do it alone… then this is the event to attend! I promise you don’t want to miss it. Register Now!

With the elections right around the corner and the economy in an uncertain state, one thing is for sure. Real Estate investing is still at an all time high. BUT, will it stay there? That is the question on everyone’s mind right now.

Well, here is an answer to that very important question. It REALLY doesn’t matter. Here’s why… When investing in real estate using creative techniques such as Owner Finance, Subject-To and Wrap Around Mortgages, the traditional whims of the market don’t really apply.

Creative Real Estate Investors make money in any market, whether it is UP or DOWN, it really doesn’t matter because we don’t have to rely solely on traditional methods to buy and sell.

Don DeRosaAlex OttewellAt this month’s Atlanta REIA Online Webinar on Monday, October 12th from 6PM – 9PM, you will get the perspective of two Expert Creative Real Estate Investors and how they thrive in ANY market. Don DeRosa and Alex Ottewell will share with you many of the secrets that have elevated their business above the whims of the market.

Some of the things they will share are:

  • Why Subject To is the greatest buying technique in real estate today
  • How to Structure seller finance deals
  • When to finance and when to flip/wholesale
  • How much to rehab a finance deal, so you don’t over rehab it
  • Alternate ways to finance the purchase
  • How important your numbers are in every deal
  • What types of contracts to use for seller financing
  • How to sell seasoned notes
  • Answers to your questions and more!

These are just a few of the gems you will learn from these seasoned professionals. If you are concerned with where the economy is headed, then you don’t want to miss Don and Alex because they will show you a whole new way to invest virtually risk free.

Networking
Your Not So Secret Weapon That You Must Maximize!
with Frank Iglesias
Atlanta REIA, Tampa REIA, Savannah REIA & Chattanooga REIA Members can Register for $5. Not-Yet-Members can Register for $25 or Join Atlanta REIA for $100/Year!

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!

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.

& 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!

Knowing how much to offer on a property is the key to any successful real estate deal. On day 2, we will show you our proprietary process for determining As-Is Value, After Repair Value, how to pull comps and how to determine an offer price you can feel confident in. We are going to instruct you on how to walk a property using our home repair checklist so that all repairs and updates are accounted for (no unforeseen expenses!) Finally, we are going to dive into the psychology of the homeowner; discussing tips and tricks to not only get a seller to agree to YOUR offer price but to also be begging you to buy their house! After 1000’s of homeowner appointments we have this down to a science.



DAY 3

Exiting the Deal & Finding the Money:
Which exit strategy is right for your particular property? Rehab, wholesale, owner finance, retail listing…knowing which strategy is right for your particular deal can mean the difference between making a five or six figure profit and making nothing! We will give you the blueprint on how to evaluate a property so that you can maximize profit through the right exit strategy. And finally we are going to show you how to line up funding and get that profit check. We will be diving into the pros and cons of different funding options and what to look out for.

Don DeRosaDoes talking to Sellers on the phone make you sweat? When you drive neighborhoods looking for ugly properties, does it stress you out because you don’t know what to look for?

Mon, August 17th at 7PM
An Evening with a Real Estate Expert on REO & Lease-Purchase Fortunes
with Andy Heller
ONLINE WEBINAR at AREIA.us/BIG

Andy HellerJoin us at the Beginning Investors Group (BIG) on Monday, August 17th at 7PM ONLINE at http://AREIA.us/BIG for an Evening with a Real Estate Expert with special guest, Andy Heller who will be taking questions regarding REOs and Lease/Purchase deals in the age of Covid and the “new normal” we are currently experiencing.

Imagine if it was 2007 again and you had insight into what would happen to the real estate market in the coming months, and how to turn this window of opportunity into a lifetime of riches! Well today we are seeing drastic increases in mortgage delinquencies, 90 day lates, divorces, bankruptcies, etc.

What does that mean to you as an investor and how do you capitalize on the flood of REOs that will likely follow? Many economists are comparing today to 2007, a window of time before a real estate reset. The signs today resemble what we saw in 2007, but obviously for different reasons.

Investors may be looking at the opportunity of a lifetime in the coming months and years. Arguably, the top two real estate investing strategies that follow rises in mortgage delinquencies are REOs and Lease/Purchases.

You will learn about BOTH these strategies at BIG and have a chance to grill real estate author and investor Andy Heller. 2020 could be your 2007, so investors buckle up and prepare and start by joining us on Monday night at ONLINE at http://AREIA.us/BIG. RSVP NOW, get your questions ready and come join us for the webinar!

As always, Atlanta REIA, Tampa REIA, Savannah REIA & Chattanooga REIA Members can attend this Online Meeting at no charge and not-yet-members can RSVP Online for $20.
