Landlording Mastermind Subgroup Meeting

National Coney Island

Great Informal Way to Learn the Ins and Outs of Owning Rental Properties and to meet other Landlords! This Oakland REIA Subgroup covers specific topics of interest to landlords. Typically 8-16 people attend making it an ideal informal environment to ask questions, share information and learn. Both novice and experienced investors are invited to attend. Discussions are always lively and interesting! During this meeting, we typically cover current landlording challenges that meeting attendees bring to the table for discussion and resolution. For example, we might address the best and most durable paint colors, how to deal with a tough tenant, the names of good affordable contractors, through helping other members solve specific real estate challenges such as whether a specific property deal is a good deal. I look forward to seeing you there!
