Beginning Investors Group Online
AKA “The Big O!”

May 25th, 2016 at 7PM ET on GoToWebinar
The Quickest, Easiest & Most Affordable Way To Get In Front Of Sellers
A Live Webcast with Bill Cook
Register for Webcast @ BigOnline.CharlotteREIA.com

Bill CookHere’s the big picture: You must let everyone know who you are and what you do. The goal is to have all the folks in your area call you if they are considering selling their property. Your next task is to separate the folks who WANT to sell from the folks who NEED to sell. And finally, when you find a motivated seller, you must be able to creatively structure a win-win deal, as well as be willing to pull the trigger quickly – ‘cause great deals don’t hang around long!

By far, the MOST effective thing we do to accomplish the above goals is knocking on sellers’ doors and asking Pete Fortunato’s famous question: “Why are you selling such a nice house like this?” Nothing, nothing, nothing works better than knocking on sellers’ doors!

I know that, in this day of iPads, websites and high-tech gadgetry, many will disagree with me. That’s fine. But realize that, for the most part, the ones who disagree with me have NEVER gone out knocking on sellers’ doors. Think about it: What’s the point of websites, direct mail campaigns, squeeze pages, dialing for dollars, etc.? Isn’t it to get you face-to-face with a seller?

If you want to learn more about how to get face-time with 8 out of every 10 sellers, join us on Wednesday, May 25th at 7:00 PM ET for a Special Webinar where Bill is going to tell you about the Quickest, Easiest & Most Affordable Way To Get In Front Of Sellers!

Fri, June 3rd at 9AM – Attend in Person or Online!
Charlotte REIA & Atlanta REIA Presents:
Nothing But Paperwork
A Full Day Workshop with Don DeRosa on Friday, June 3rd from 9AM-6PM
There Are Two Ways to Attend…
Online via GoToWebinar or
In Person in Buford, GA
Are You Ready to Take the Fear Out of Doing the Paperwork to Complete a Transaction?

Don DeRosaDo real estate contracts and paperwork scare the daylights out of you? Do you wish you had a better understanding of how to fill out all the paperwork that comes with being a real estate investor for each and every deal you do? We have the solution to your problem!

On Friday, June 3rd, 2016 at 9AM, (1) in person at 1960 Skylar Hill Drive, Suite D, Buford, GA or (2) Online via GoToWebinar.com, we will teach you how to be a paper pushing real estate pro. We are going to show you how fill out all the paperwork that you use on a daily basis to become a real estate investor and more importantly, a “transaction engineer”.

Paperwork like:

  • Purchase and Sale Agreements
  • Authorization to Release Information
  • Power of Attorney
  • Land Trusts
  • Beneficial Interest
  • Appointment of Trustee
  • Assignments
  • Leases
  • Options
  • Disclosures
  • And many other documents that you will use on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis depending on the kinds of deals your doing.

Here are some things that you will learn:

  • How to fill out all the documents needed to protect yourself from potential legal issues
  • How to explain each paragraph to your sellers, your lenders, and even your buyers so everyone is informed and comfortable with the paperwork
  • How to write in the financing terms – the payment structure, who’s paying closing cost, who’s doing the home inspections, what the closing dates are, and who is the closing attorney
  • What steps need to be taken when someone defaults on an agreement
  • What paperwork needs to be notarized
  • What paperwork needs to be filed at the courthouse and what paperwork is private that nobody sees
  • What kind of disclosures you have to offer, such as:
    • Seller Disclosures
    • Lead-based paint
    • Asbestos
    • Radon
    • Agency disclosures

We are also going to show you how to take all of these mounds of required paperwork that you will use on a daily, weekly, and/or monthly basis and put it all in the palm of your hands! We will show you how to make the mounds of paperwork into electronic files that can be filled out within seconds versus minutes, hours, or in some cases, days.

We are also going to share with you the 8 things that could blow up your real estate transaction if you are not careful:

  • The seller doesn’t have the authority to sell
  • The purchase and sale agreement is signed improperly
  • The purchase and sale agreement has the wrong or in adequate legal description
  • Earnest money is handled improperly
  • Allowing the seller to stay in the property after closing without the right possession agreement
  • Failure to indicate clearly what the seller gets and what the buyer gets so that everyone understands
  • Failure to get all of the initials and signatures to make it a valid sale
  • Failing to give proper disclosures
  • Not allowing yourself enough special stipulations or out clauses to protect you from losing your earnest money

If you want to take the fear out of filling out contracts and completing the paperwork properly and want to organize and systematize your real estate documents, this is a one day training event you don’t want to miss! We hope you will join us!
