Jay ConnerJoin us on Thursday, March 6th at 6:00 PM at the Charlotte REIA Main Monthly Meeting at the Crowne Plaza Charlotte Executive Park located at 5700 Westpark Dr in Charlotte, NC (map) where real estate and private money expert Jay Conner will teach you “Where to Get the Money Now” to fund all of your real estate deals. He will teach you how he has built his buying and selling houses business into a seven figure income in less than 2 years on automatic using a simple, step-by-step system (that anyone can duplicate) which enabled him to raise $2,150,000 in less than 90 Days.

Jay is going to share the knowledge he’s acquired while creating a 7-Figure annual income in his own Real Estate Business with you! Jay’s specialty is acquiring Private Money for his renovation projects. And whether you know it or not, the difference between the rich and the “just getting by” into today’s Real Estate World…is Private Money.

A large part of Jay’s business is based on people putting up the money to make a loan so he can buy a property cheap and take advantage of the bank-owned real estate bonanza that’s going on out there right now. Jay always gets a big check when he buys a property and doesn’t even make monthly payments on his loans!

If you’re remotely interested in transforming your Real Estate Career from a frustrating hobby to a thriving 6-Figure business that churns out thousands of dollars in passive income month after month, this may be the most important meeting you attend all year!

The “New Subject-To” Strategies That Work in Today’s Real Estate Market
Feb 6th at the Crowne Plaza Charlotte Executive Park

Don DeRosaJoin us on Thursday, February 6th at 6:00 PM at the Charlotte REIA Main Monthly Meeting at the Crowne Plaza Charlotte Executive Park located at 5700 Westpark Dr in Charlotte, NC (map) where real estate expert Don DeRosa will share with you, many of the “New Subject-To” strategies, tools and techniques he uses every day to create winning deals for himself as well as his buyers and sellers. 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.

Today Don is working feverishly at buying properties “Subject To” using the existing financing on the seller’s home instead of having to go to a bank or a hard money lender for funding. This allows Don to buy multiple properties fast, without coming up with all the purchase funds on the front end. 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.

By the end of the presentation, you’ll know…

  • How to recognize a “Subject To” opportunity and buy with little or no money!
  • How to evaluate any lead and decide whether this is a winner for you and how much money you’ll make before you make your offer
  • How to combine buying strategies and exit strategies – that work right now, in 2013
  • How to structure a deal in less than 10 minutes, so that you make a minimum of $20,000 on it, choosing from multiple purchase and exist strategies
  • How to determine the seller’s hot buttons are so you can craft a deal the seller can’t refuse
  • How to use Don’s proprietary tools to negotiate for you, so you never let your emotions talk you into making a bad deal!

And is this is not enough, Don will be back with us on Saturday, Febuary 8th for a full day workshop on The Ultimate “Hot To” Workshop on Buying Houses “Subject-To” where he will really drive these points home and give you all the subject-to details you need to succeed in real estate investing. Once you are armed with Don’s training and the tools, you will be able to make 2014 your best year ever!

Bill HamI have built a 400 unit real estate portfolio in middle Georgia without ever walking into a bank and putting money down! I didn’t say that I did all of those deals were “No Money Down”. In a lot of cases I made cash offers and put 100% of the money down with some left over to do the repairs…but I didn’t say it was any of MY money!

Before I started in real estate almost nine years ago and after graduating college, I became a corporate pilot and flew for a local medical supply company for several years. It didn’t take long for me to figure out that as a pilot I was really important from takeoff to landing. Once on the ground, as a pilot, I was not so important anymore. After spending many long hours sitting at some desolate airport or nearby café sipping coffee waiting for my passengers to decide they finally wanted to go home. I realize that as much as I like to fly airplanes…doing it when someone to told me to do it was not all that fun. I was a glorified limo driver! Read More→
