Last month I talked about how I created a near disaster for my family because I got too big for my britches and thought I could buy 100 houses in one year when I truly was not prepared to undertake a monumental task that large that has so many tentacles I had no idea I had to deal with.

I now realize that every one of these people provide a service I desperately needed if I had any chance of buying anywhere near 100 houses in any year. Without the services of these people there would be no way I could have achieved my goal of buying 100 houses in any year

Each of the ten deals I did in that one-week period were good deals and bought at prices that would have given us a good profit. I had bought each of the ten properties with Hard Money loans from local private money lenders who knew and trusted me. Because I couldn’t get the repairs completed, I quickly ran out of the money I had borrowed in a very short period of time. To keep my name good with my lenders, I had to take out personal loans to make the individual monthly payments for each property that was sitting empty and not bringing in any money. I had to borrow money I needed quickly to make those monthly payments. It didn’t take long for me to realize I was out of money. I was scared to death I wouldn’t be able to continue to fund these empty houses and ruin my name and reputation with the lenders.  Read More→

Don is a part time real estate trainer and mentor and full-time real estate investor who actively buys, sells and holds properties each month for huge profits and long term cash flow.

This is the perfect strategy for buying and holding pretty houses in today’s market where easy funding is not readily available for real estate investors.

Don will walk you through real deals, step-by-step to demonstrate 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.

AKA “The Big O!”
6 Secrets Seasoned Investors Use to Maximize Profits on Every Deal
with Larry Harbolt on July 27th

Beginning Investors Group Online (The BIG O)The Beginning Investors Group Online (The “Big O” or BIGO) is an new online educational group that currently meets on the 4th Wednesday at 7PM ET for new investors who are just getting started in real estate investing as well as “new again” real estate investors who’ve taken a few years off and are looking to get back in the game.

We will be bringing in local and national real estate experts to teach new investors how to survive and thrive in our ever changing economy and real estate market. The entire purpose of this group is to help new investors get their first deal and help new again investors get their next deal.

Larry HarboltThis month, on July 27th at 7PM, Larry Harbolt will be our special guest speaker on how to maximize profits on each and every deal you do. Larry is the nation’s leading expert on creative seller financing. He is also an author, mentor, teacher, and full time real estate investor.

Have you ever wondered how successful investors are continually finding and doing profitable deal after deal? Did you ever ask yourself what seasoned investors look for and what they think about before they ever make an offer on any property? Have you ever thought about what makes a good deal and what is missing from the deals that you don’t want?

Join us on the webinar and Larry will teach you 6 secrets of how successful investors think through every deal they do and how they structure offers in multiple ways to buy any property. He will also show you why “CASH” isn’t always the best solution for every seller and why they may not want All CASH for their property.

Join us on July 27th at 7PM online at GoToWebinar and learn:

  • The Key Components of Every Successful Real Estate Transaction
  • What Types of Properties Generate the Most Profit
  • What Key Questions You MUST Ask Every Seller

Tampa REIA & Atlanta REIA Presents:
Wholesaling 101
A Full Day Online Workshop
with Russ Hiner
Saturday, August 27th from 9AM – 5PM
Attend Online via GoToWebinar!

Russ HinerWhen I got started in the Real Estate Business over 30 years ago, I did not have a formal Real Estate education. I did everything by the seat of my pants, and I learned some tough lessons.

Here is what I found: the seat-of-your-pants business model will result in painful growth. It will cost a LOT of YOUR money. Believe me, I know. So I want you to learn from my mistakes so YOU can be successful.

If you could learn one thing from me, it would be to get a formal education from a solid coach or mentor who has been where you are and knows how to help you get your profitable real estate business off the ground.

I’m an expert, and a coach who can show you the Infinite Wholesale Technique. I can show you how to be confident, how to turn a profit, how to make good decisions, and I can show YOU how to make $5,000+ in the next 30 days.

This “edutainment” training will show you how to overcome your fears by leading you away from the mistakes I’ve made. Once you sign up and attend this event, you will learn the ins and outs of success in the wholesaling business.

You will learn to:

  • Create a buyers list that works
  • Create a successful seller’s list
  • Create inventory
  • Write a contract that gives you the advantage
  • Talk to sellers and buyers
  • Make deal evaluations
  • Structure creative deals
  • Spot a “Great Deal” or one to run from!
  • And much, much more!

You’ll also get my Wholesaling 101 Manual and paperwork.

Isn’t it time YOU took YOUR place in the sun? Here is a low priced opportunity for you to get a seat in this Wholesaling 101 Event taught by me, investor, coach and real estate leader, Russ Hiner.

Wholesaling 101 takes place on Saturday, August 27th from 9AM to 5PM Online via GoToWebinar. Come join us online! I would love to help you take your Wholesaling Business to the next level!

Andy will be doing a 100-minute presentation on “Real Estate Safety” for Real Estate Investors and Realtors. In fact, if you are a licensed real estate agent, this presentation is worth 2 CE credits.

With recent attacks in Florida and throughout the country, Real Estate Safety has become a hot topic. Even before such senseless attacks, Andy was just like you… not thinking about if it was safe to go to empty houses alone or meet complete strangers in a vacant home, until a few close calls made her change her thinking.

Andy TolbertAndy has been an investor, trainer, and real estate broker for almost 20 years, and has been a director of the Orlando REIA group for almost just as long. She’s also an NRA and USCCA firearms instructor and has been certified in self-defense and crime prevention techniques by various law enforcement training agencies. Now she travels around Florida teaching safety techniques to all parts of the real estate industry, including Realtors, investors, lenders, title companies and more.

During Andy’s 100-minute “Real Estate Safety” presentation, you will learn:

Get 2 CE Credits

  • The #1 secret to not becoming a victim
  • Key questions to ask over the phone to weed out the fakers
  • How to prescreen potential buyers & sellers
  • How to successfully and safely hold an open house
  • What to do when you’re showing or viewing houses
  • How and where to park
  • Simple self-defense tools and techniques and how to use them
  • 2 Hours of Specialty CE Credit for Florida real estate licensees!
  • And much, much more!

Whether you’re buying, selling, or renting… you come in contact with lots of people, and unfortunately not all of them have your best interests in mind. Come to our meeting on the July 14th and learn some simple, inexpensive, and easy to implement changes you can make right away to keep yourself and those you love safe. By the way, don’t be confused, this is NOT a Vegas style comedy show, although you’ll be laughing all night!

Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn how to defend and protect yourself when your out in the real world buying and selling houses and enjoying life!
