- Master Leases: Acquire a Cash Flowing Building With Little to No Money Down
Join us on Saturday, May 26 and learn how to use a master lease to control and manage an entire commercial building with little to no money down. A master lease gives the lessee the right to control and sublease an asset for a given period of time. For an introduction to master leases, see this BiggerPockets article on “How to Use a Master Lease to Acquire Commercial Real Estate With No Money Down” (https://goo.gl/PfTULo) (CAPTCHA verification required). The presenter is Jeff Yu. Jeff works for Sovereign State (소버린 스테이트), the master lease operator of a modern 9-storey commercial building (see rendering), which is also the annex to the Construction Engineers Hall. What exactly is a master lease agreement? Why would a landlord consider partnering with a master lease investor? How do master lease investors make money? What kind of ROI can they expect? What are some common terms and conditions found in master lease agreements? What are the challenges and risks that master lease investors face? How do sub-tenants feel about signing a lease with a master lease investor as opposed to a landlord? Learn all this and more. The event will be held in the building itself, which is located in Samseong-dong, Gangnam-gu. We’ll kick things off with an educational presentation about master leases. This will be followed by a guided tour of the building including the rooftop lounge, where attendees will have the opportunity to network with other members of the Seoul Real Estate Investing Meetup.

- Play Cashflow 202 With Other Investors and Learn Advanced Investment Techniques
**IMPORTANT: This meetup is limited to 12 people. Six of these spots are available to members of the Seoul Real Estate Investing Meetup. The other six spots are available to members of the Seoul Cashflow Board Game & Investment Talk (https://goo.gl/xAL5Z6) Meetup group. --- Cashflow 202 teaches you the advanced business and investing techniques used by technical investors by adding volatility to the game. It teaches the advanced investment techniques of short selling, put options, call options, straddles and more. Cashflow 202 is an extension of Cashflow 101, and to play this game you must be comfortable playing Cashflow 101. More about Cashflow 101: Cashflow 101 is an educational board game designed by Robert Kiyosaki (the author of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad"). It aims to teach players concepts of investing by having their money work for them in a risk-free setting (i.e., by using play money) while at the same time increasing their financial literacy and stressing accountability. There are two stages to the game: "The Rat Race" and "The Fast Track." During the initial rat race, players aim to raise their respective character's passive income level so that it exceeds their character's expenses. Once a player achieves this level of passive income, he or she may move to the fast track where a winner is determined. To win, a player must get his or her character to buy a predetermined "dream" or accumulate an additional $50,000 in monthly cash flow. Instead of score cards, there are financial statements. The game requires players to fill out their own financial statements to keep track of where their streams of income and expenses are coming from. It's essentially Monopoly for adults, complete with simplified balance sheets and income statement. Participation Fee: 10,000 KRW (includes space rental and a drink)
