• What's Hot and What's Not- Investing in the Chicago Market
    "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?

  • Flipping for a Living- Reverse Engineer Your Flips
    The TV shows make it look so easy. You buy an ugly house, fix it up in a week or two and then sell it for a whopping $100,000 profit. But as anyone who has ever tried it knows, house flipping is a lot harder than it looks. And often, the math doesn't add up to a sizable payday when you factor in the time, effort, labor and money to execute a flip. But that doesn't keep people from trying. Flippers face four key challenges: • Finding a good house at a low enough price to make the deal work • Finding reliable contractors to do quality work at a reasonable price • Finding money to finance the deal • Selling the home at a price that will cover expenses and provide enough profit to compensate for the time invested If location, location, location is the mantra for all real estate, “do the math, do the math, do the math” should be the mantra for would-be flippers. And we mean all the math. For example, if you calculate a potential flip this way: Buy a house for $100,000, spend $20,000 on improvements, sell it for $150,000 and earn $30,000 profit, you clearly haven’t done all the math that’s needed.REMINDER: ChicagoREIA.org- Oak Lawn Monday, November 26th- 6:30pm (Check-In / Networking starts at 6:00pm) Hilton Oak Lawn 9333 S.

  • Planning for Explosive Growth
    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. How to get ready for the closing? 8. 5 critical steps before you ever go to a closing 9. Understanding the Closing/HUD statement 10. How much do you actually pay for each service at the closing? 11. Do you know what your attorney is charging when you order title? 12. Cost when buying a property and selling a property and how to save thousands of dollars. This meeting is packed full of information so make sure you bring a pad and paper. FREE MEETING!
