Greg EmmerIf you’re going to purchase real estate to fix and flip or to buy, fix and hold, you’ll need money. Lots of it! Whether you purchase from wholesalers or homeowners, or through agents or at auctions, you’ll need funding sooner or later. With all the different types of financing available for investors in today’s market, which will you choose? Private money? Hard money? Soft money? Bank loans? Credit Lines? Credit cards?

One of the most common ways real estate investors finance deals is using “Hard Money”. This month at the Beginning Investors Group Online Webinar on Tuesday, March 26th at 7PM ET, Greg Emmer, of EquityMax, will be our special guest speaker who will be discussing the use of hard money and answering your hard money related questions.

  • Know the right questions to ask your hard money lender

  • How you can use hard money for both fix-and-flip or buy-and-hold deals

  • 5 things the lender won’t tell you

Dear Real Estate Investor,

I, Robyn Thompson, will be teaching an all day workshop this coming Saturday for Tampa REIA at the Doubletree Suites Tampa Bay, 3050 North Rocky Point Dr West, Tampa, FL from 9AM to 5PM with a BONUS Session from 5:30PM to 8PM.

The all day class from 9:00am to 5:00pm will focus on rehabbing houses.

Here is the list of topics I will be teaching:

  • Where to Find Properties to Rehab for Huge Profit
  • The 9 Types of Houses to Never Buy

  • Locating and Hiring the Best Contractors to Get the Job Done
  • Prescreening & Controlling The 8 Contractors on A Dream Team

Now for the HUGE BONUS for you! Dustin heard that I have been doing extremely well with my 7 vacation rentals. He asked me to stay late and do a 2.5 hour training from 5:30PM to 8:00PM about vacation rentals such as VRBO, Homeaway, AirBnB, etc and I agreed. I will be teaching how I have made $118,753 since the beginning of
January 2019 from nightly Vacation Rentals.

I will teach you…

  • Where the best place is to buy them
  • How to furnish them
  • How to get them booked by using your phone
  • The marketing strategies to get them booked more than your competition
  • How to find a great cleaning team so you won’t have to do touch the properties
