Since 2013 as full time Real Estate Investor, he has successfully flipped & built over 30 homes in and around the bay area.

How to Become a Transaction Engineer
Full Day Workshop with Don DeRosa on How To Put Together Deals When Others Can’t!
Sat, June 16th from 9AM – 6PM
Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay
3050 North Rocky Point Dr West, Tampa, FL
*Join Tampa REIA or Renew Your Membership & Attend at NO CHARGE!*

Don DeRosaWhen you come across a lead, do you know how to look at the information, analyze it and determine what to do with it next? There’s nothing worse than losing a deal because you don’t know multiple ways to structure the deal and how to present multiple offers to the seller.

We are in the midst of a sellers’ market. Although I wish it would never end, that simply isn’t possible. As Sir Isaac Newton once said “what goes up must come down“. He was referring to gravity of course, but the same can be said for real estate.

I want you to learn NOW, how to buy properties with no money down or with as little as possible because you can’t and shouldn’t always rely on traditional funding and traditional methods.

To be a good, creative deal structurer, two things need to happen… 1) You need to become a problem solver aka a “transaction engineer”. The better you understand the problem, the more solutions you can offer your seller. 2) You need to become your seller’s partner. It needs to be a win-win scenario for everyone.

During the Transaction Engineer Workshop, I’m going to teach you how to collect the right information, how to analyze the details and then how to use it to create a win-win solution for you and your seller.

At this event, you will learn how to:

  • Ask the right kind of questions
  • How to perform proper due diligence
  • How to structure three different deals on each lead
  • How to become a top transaction engineer by using techniques such as “subject to” owner financing, options, lease purchases and many more
  • How to structure deals that eliminate/limit your need
    for cash or cred
  • All this, plus answers to your questions and much more!

So join me, Don DeRosa, at the Transaction Engineer Workshop on Saturday, June 16th, 2018 from 9AM to 6PM at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay located at 3050 North Rocky Point Dr West in Tampa, FL as we discuss multiple offer strategies, negotiating and creative deal offer making.

I will also show you how to use my “Easy Offer Maker” to make profitable offers every time, using multiple strategies like owner financing, subject to, options and lease-options. If you want to learn how to make money on every lead you get your hands on, then REGISTER NOW and come join us to learn how to structure deals creatively and become a transaction engineer!

David Minor Ryan Groff Rex Gaugh Lawrence Malloy

As you know, it’s a proven fact that real estate has created more millionaires than any other investment in history, so what’s stopping you from being the next real estate multi-millionaire? Don’t know how or where to get started? Don’t know how to find good deals? Don’t know how to analyze a deal if you find one? Don’t have funding?

The good news is… Wholesaling Houses is a simple, fun and highly profitable way to get started investing in real estate without a lot of training, experience, cash or cred. You can quickly learn to wholesale houses in any real estate market and can often complete many of these deals, from start to finish in a few days or weeks. This means you can often get paid thousands of dollars in 30 Days or less!

The Panel will consist of David Minor of Vesado, Ryan Groff of New Western Acquisitions, Rex Gaugh, and Lawrence Malloy of Ethical Home Buyers. These gentlemen will teach you everything you need to know about wholesaling like a pro and answer all your questions during the meeting. The panel will discuss…

  • What is a Wholesaler vs a Bird Dog?
  • What is Wholesaling and how does it work?
  • What is Co-Wholesaling and how does it work?
  • How has the Wholesale Market changed over the past year?
  • How to find deals with the best profit potential
  • How to determine value of properties
  • How to determine cost of repairs
  • How to negotiate the deal
  • How to offer all cash even if you have no cash
  • How to complete the paperwork
  • How to find a buyer
  • How to close quickly and get paid
  • Wholesaling pros and cons
  • Answers to YOUR questions and more!

Don DeRosaWhen it comes to real estate investing, it’s all about knowing your numbers. If you’re off on your numbers, you may barely break even on a deal or even worse… lose big time! YOU MUST KNOW YOUR NUMBERS!

So when it comes to knowing your numbers…

  • Do you know how to really determine if you are buying a good deal or not?
  • How do you know if you’re paying too much?
  • How do you know how much profit you’re going to make?
  • Do you know how to do all 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?
  • Do you know After Repair Value (ARV) of a property for a buy and hold vs a fix and flip?
  • Do you know how to accurately determine repairs and estimate repair costs before you buy?
  • 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?

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!

Instead of learning these valuable due diligence skills the hard and expensive way, be sure to attend the upcoming Estimating Repairs “In the Field” Workshop with Don DeRosa on Saturday, May 12th, 2018 from 9AM to 1PM at 1821 22nd Ave N, St. Petersburg, FL.
