Getting Started In Real Estate Investing Without Quitting Your Day Job

  • Mar 20, 2013 · 4:30 PM
  • Ocean City Marblehead Rehab


Driving Instructions Updated: 3/8/13:

Just wanted to let everyone know that 1 Morgan Lane does not show up on most GPS systems.  The best address to put in is 60 puritan road Marblehead Mass.  Once you reach 60 Puritan, you take a left right onto Morgan Lane.  Morgan Lane only has a few houses on the street.

About The Meetup

Have you wanted to get started in real estate forever, but have a full time job that keeps getting in the way of your goal.  Investor Tom Cafarella will shine some light on this topic at 6pm.  When Tom started investing in real estate, he was in this exact predicament and will show you the strategies that he used to get started TODAY. Tom is a principle of Ocean City Development and is head of acquisitions. Tom has been on the front lines of Ocean City Development's team, and has acquired over 16 properties to fix and flip over the past 6 months.

Location: This Boston-North Meetup will be held at 1 Morgan Lane in Marblehead, MA. This is an open invitation, and all that we ask is that you rsvp on our page prior to the event.

Environment: We will have an informal environment with food and refreshments. We are keeping this  event informal so that members can get to know one another and so that we can determine the structure going forward. Suggestions for future structure of the meeting going forward are appreciated.

Time and Structure of Event: the event starts at 4:00pm, but feel free to come anywhere between 4:30- 6:45pm. You will be able to go in and out at your convenience.

Future Plans: We will most likely add local speakers with experience in the Boston/North local. There will never be any multi-level marketing or programs/selling to members of any sort. There will never be any fees or dues.

Attendees: typical attendees usually consist of other real estate investors, wholesalers, hard money lenders and brokers, real estate agents, real estate attorney's, contractors and anyone looking to get into the real estate business.
