Building Critical Mass

Naperville Public Library 95th Street Library

Andrew started flipping houses in 2008 when every other investor was running for the hills. Even though he was in the process of building a huge flipping business Andrew soon realized that investing in it's true sense was not just doing flips. It was buying properties and having your tenants pay them off for you. Since 2011 Andrew with his business partner has purchased over 160 properties that they now own in their rental portfolio. Majority of these properties have a loan to value ratio of less than 65% and all of them will be paid off in less than 10 years. Andrew will cover how to scale at a high pace with having very littlemoney or credit of your own. At this meeting we will cover the following 1. Building a million dollar portfolio in 2 years or less 2. How to scale up at a fast pace starting with very little money or credit 3. Strategies to find business partner to help you grow 4. How to present your number and figures so others want to be a part of your business 5. How to buy low rehab right and get your deal refinanced 6. How to do proper due diligence? 7.

LIVE Deal Picking; Searching the MLS

Holiday Inn and Suites Chicago - Downtown

POWER SEARCHING THE MLS - HOW THE BIG DOGS FIND DEALS WITH A LOT OF MEAT ON THE BONE Picking the BIG FLIP & HUGE CASH FLOW DEALS from MLS is both an Art & Science - COME, LEARN & GROW Defining Searches on the MLS: The MLS is a database that allows you to set up queries to find specific information. It allows you to search by categories. The main ones are: • REO (bank-owned) • Government-owned (HUD) • Short sales (sometimes called “subject to third party”) • Private-owned (retail properties) By selecting a category such as REOs, the MLS will go through the database and pull out only the REO listings. This allows you to look at just the information you want to see.
