• Pre-Foreclosures: Mining for Gold

    Hilton Chicago/Oak Lawn

    As the market becomes hot most investors are struggling to find deals. Pre-Foreclosures and Shadow Inventory still remains the largest source of distressed 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.

  • What's Hot & What's Not- Investing in the Chicago Market

    Holiday Inn & Suites Chicago-Downtown

    "What's HOT & What's NOT in Downtown Chicago." We are going to go in depth on which neighborhoods are HOT and which ones are NOT with a complete Market Overview. Chicago has always been one of the biggest real estate investing markets, and downtown and surrounding neighborhoods are hotter than they have ever been before. We'll be breaking down the neighborhoods that work by the numbers, and using real property examples. It becomes obvious what lures homebuyers to certain Chicago neighborhoods once you get to know them. Among the draws are convenient public transportation, walkability, and diversity in everything from restaurants to culture. Recently, some neighborhoods have seen their housing markets heat up much more than others. We Will Cover: - What are the trending neighborhoods RIGHT NOW? - What makes a good up-and-coming neighborhood? - Where should you be looking to invest? - What factors to watch for - If a neighborhood is red-hot, is it untouchable for all but the best buyers? - Do others walk away empty-handed?
