  • Off Market Deal Domination

    Barnett REI Finance

    As the market becomes hot most investors are struggling to find deals. Off-Market Properties still remain the largest source of inventory. In the Chicago market there are over 30,000 pre-foreclosures that will end up either on MLS, Auctions, or bank owned REO properties. Most real estate investors including experienced investors have no idea of how to work the Pre-Foreclosures. Pre-Foreclosures are the single largest source of hidden deals at any given time. At the upcoming meeting we will breakdown how to mine for gold with Pre-Foreclosures. Pre-Foreclosures can be divided into two major categories • Properties listed in the MLS (5% of all Pre-Foreclosures) • Off market deals NOT in MLS (95% of all Pre-Foreclosures) Andrew will cover how to break down off market pre-foreclosure deals • Pre-Foreclosures with equity • Pre-Foreclosures 60 days or less from auction • Pre-Foreclosures without equity or commonly known as short sale This meeting will be packed full of tons of content and information that you can put to use immediately.

  • Buscalo, Compralo, y Vendelo (Find Fund and Flip)

    DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Chicago - Oak Brook

    Los programas de televisión lo hacen ver tan fácil. Compras una casa fea, la arreglas en una o dos semanas y luego la vendes con $100,000 de ganancia. Pero, como cualquiera que lo haya intentado lo sabe, arreglar una casa es mucho más difícil de lo que parece. Y, a menudo, no costea ni un día de salario considerable cuando se toma en cuenta el tiempo, esfuerzo, trabajo y dinero invertido para sacar la ganancia. Pero eso no impide que la gente lo intente. Quienes a esto se dedican se enfrentan a cuatro retos clave: • Encontrar una buena casa a un precio lo suficientemente bajo para que el negocio funcione • Encontrar contratistas confiables para hacer un trabajo de calidad a un precio razonable • Encontrar dinero para financiar el trato • Vender la casa a un precio que cubra los gastos y pague ganancias suficientes para compensar el tiempo invertido Si “ubicación, ubicación, ubicación” es el mantra para todas las propiedades inmobiliarias, "haz el cálculo, haz el cálculo, haz el cálculo " debe ser el mantra para quienes se dedican a comprar casas y arreglarlas. Y nos referimos a todos los cálculos. Por ejemplo, si así calculas una posible ganancia: compras una casa de $100,000, gastas $20,000 en arreglarla, la vendes en $150,000 y te quedan $30,000 de ganancia, claramente no estás haciendo bien los cálculos ¡CONFERENCIA GRATIS!

  • New Construction & Big Flips- The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

    Hilton Garden Inn Schaumburg

    Making Money with New Construction and Big Flips During the last real estate recession, new housing came to a screeching halt. In some markets, entire subdivisions were abandoned and left uncompleted with brand new homes sitting vacant with six feet tall grass in the yard. New housing developers, builders and investors were hit the hardest with the downturn and were stuck with over leveraged land and new houses and no on to buy them. Fast forward, 7-8 years to today. Now we are in a recovering market. Most of that over-leveraged inventory has been sold via short sales and foreclosure. Today, values are continuing to steadily increase and some predictions are that the some real estate markets are on tract to reach pre-bubble values in the next year or two! Buyer confidence is strong and demand for new housing is back. The problem is most of the new housing developers, builders, and investors are still licking their wounds from the last down turn. Opportunity is Knocking… At the Schaumburg meeting we will not only be discussing the pros and cons but we will also be going into greater detail on... • The difference between New Construction & Spec Homes • Builder's Incentives • Hidden Costs • Avoiding Bidding Wars • Fast Turnaround Opportunity is knocking in this niche market, you do not want to miss out on this meeting.

  • Understanding Financing (Residential, Commercial, & Private Loan)

    DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Libertyville - Mundelein

    When Asked What The Reason Why You Are Not Investing? #1 reason given - Lack Of Money To Invest There is over $18.2 trillion in total retirement assets sitting and most real estate investors struggle to find a mere $50 to 250K to invest in deals. So why don't you have the capital to invest. Bad credit, New to investing, No Track Record are the most commonly given reasons. Yet the truth is that none of these are true. The truth is that 99.9% of wannabe investors or even real estate investors with experience do not know how to present their deals to potential investors. It's a fairly simple 5 step process. 1. Find a Great Deal 2. Mitigate your private money lenders risk 3. Show proper due diligence 4. Learn the language of money 5. Understand the paperwork It's 5 step proven formula that has helped us raise over $10 Million in capital. We will break down the formula for you. All you have to do is copy the exact steps as we lay them out and repeat for yourself. The question is not if it works. We know it works. The only question is whether you are willing to come and learn. At the Northbrook meeting we will do a point by point breakdown of the formula. Bring a notebook and get ready to take lots of good notes. FREE MEETING!
