Real estate investment clubs

Posted by: Dean Foust on August 04, 2005

Came across this interesting article over on MSN’s Money site on a topic I’d been meaning to discuss: the boom in real estate investment clubs — which have roughly quadrupled in number, to 178 in past three years. Granted, as author points out, that’s nothing like the boom we saw in investment clubs in the late 1990s (which soared to more than 36,000). Just as individual investors had the NAIC to help them form an investment club, there’s the National Real Estate Investors Association, which will help you set up a real estate investment club of your own. Even in my own neighborhood, I have friends that have been trying to twist my arm to join them and other friends to go in together and buy rental properties.

Forgive me for once again being bearish, but I’d be wary of starting a real estate club at this late date, particularly if you don’t have the deep pockets to ride out a downturn. Reason: The growing gap between housing prices and rental values in many booming markets. Given the explosion in prices, I think you’d be hard pressed in some markets to generate enough rental income to cover your mortgage payment. And if prices fall, you have no easy exit strategy — you’re stuck, underwater, for years to come. But that’s the bearish view. Are there readers who have formed investment clubs in recent years that are working out?

Dean,

Many of the investment clubs which are popping are there for one purpose only - to make money. They bring in a guest "guru" to do a one hour talk then a sales pitch to buy their latest course or seminar.

There's very little education that really goes on. The resources are nonexistent.

So - beware of joining just any investment club.

There's more to being an investor than just being a landlord. I've been a full time investor for more than 10 years. The objective is to get a steady flow of leads coming in so you can sift and sort through them to decide which ones to keep. Some leads work out great as a cash flowing rental property, some work better as a rehab project to buy, fix and sell, some work better as a wholesale flip. Any leads that don't fit my buying criteria, I pass on to other investors through one of my web sites - for a small profit.

The point is, there are plenty of wasy to make money with real estate.

About five years ago, I started the first online member based real estate investment club. It's still going strong today. Each member has an exclusive for their county. I provide all the marketing tools to keep that steady flow of leads coming in and provide a forum for discussions and strategy and a support group.

If you negotiate the deal right, you can get great cash flow for any rental property. If you go the conventional route and get bank financing, it will rarely work out. Many sellers would rather have a monthly check than a lump sum settlement when they sell. Instead of going to the bank to borrow money ( and paying all those loan fees), you simply offer to pay the seller some money down now and monthly payments that the house can afford and still cash flow. So, the key is to being a successful investor is (1) getting plenty of leads coming in to pick from, and (2)learn ways to buy with creative financing.

I can see why you have a bearish view on investment clubs Dean, but they are very useful tools. Although in many cases, as Jackie points out, they are designed to be moneymakers for their founders, there are still many great clubs out there.

I disagree with charging members hundreds of dollars a year to be a member of a club. I also disagree with calling yourself a "Guru" and selling your books/courses/materials for hundreds or thousands of dollars.

Becoming a real estate investor is like getting into any business. You must do your homework and understand the basics. The good clubs provide a forum for people to learn and network at. They bring in informed speakers who can educate investors in differing aspects of the investing process. They are great places to meet other investors, agents, contractors, mortgage reps, and others in the "biz". In addition, they are also great places to find a potential mentor; as in most other trades, mentors are extremly important!

Joining one of these clubs is much better way for investors to spend their money, especially if you consider the alternative of buying some late-night course sold for the introductory price of $799.99.

Whether the overall housing market is rising or falling, there are always opportunities out there to make money investing in real estate. You just need to have enough information to do it. Just as in the stock market, you can get rich as either a bull or a bear -- there will be opportunities no matter what!

A Real Estate investment club is a good way for people to get information and find contacts. As with any business, be diligent and see what is opinion versus fact. Use the investment club as a stepping stone to your business.

Real Estate Investor Clubs are very useful tool for a beginner and expert investor. I see Real Estate Investor Club as an association where like minded people come and get motivated, get knowledge, build relationships and make deals happen! If you are new investor there is no better way to join local real estate investor club and get in the game! New investors can easily understand who are the real players in the market. I believe that most of the real estate investor clubs have annual fees in $100-$300 range which is very reasonable. We have started our club in September 2005 and we are already at 130 members. So I disagree with Dean's view about getting into game late. I believe that this is the best time to start business if you know what you are doing. Since most of the beginner investor don't know what they are doing; joining Real Estate Investor Club is the best thing they can do.

Real estate clubs are great for beginners and advanced investors alike.We have over 1,000 members here in Orlando at CFRI. I teach beginners how to find deals even in a hot market.

I bought 26 homes last year that all can be directly or indirectly attributed to things or people at our investment club.

I would highly recommend it to anyone.

I'm interested in being a Real Estate investor. I just got back from a Russ Whitney training class and was very disappointed about the coaches. They were very unprofessional. They wouldn't sit down with my husband and me to discuss how we were going come up with the money to further our education in their program.
Can any one help us get into this business without paying the outrageous tutition for the schooling? I know you have to spend money to make money, but there must be an easier way.
We don't want to live paycheck to paycheck any more. I'm unemployed right now and can't pay the bills.

I believe Realty Trac.com is a SHAM!!! I signed up for their "FREE" 7 day trail …little did I
know they would use my credit card info to tie me into one of their advertising partners.
Somehow I was signed up for Property Investor magazine @ $30 bucks and didn't know it until I checked my statement
I called Property Investor Magazine and they told me that’s lots of people had the
same problem and that I would get a refund. I haven’t seen the refund yet !. WARNING stay away
from RealtyTrAc.com and Property Investor Magazine. They are two companies that care more about their bottom lines then the people they serve. Shameful! THAT’S BAD BUSINESS

Consider this. American Association of Small Property Owners, a grassroots lobbying group, estimates that over ten million Americans are owners of residential and commercial investment properties. That's a lot of investors, and they're not going to all going to pack it in when the market hits the next downcycle.

Chasing the next boom market is a shell game. That's speculation. But there will always be a role for investors. They house America!

The Richmond REIA, a member of National REIA, began a few years ago. Our group is growing consistently. With over 195 members to date I find it tough to believe that real estate investing is the wrong industry to get into. The bottom line is that you make your money when you BUY, not when you sell. That's true in any market - hot or cold. Our group promotes education and networking and that is why we retain so many members and our turnover rate is almost non-existent. Select a group wisely. And if you are serious about real estate investing, I strongly urge you to join one.

Greetings:

Former Ivy leaguer here looking for some guidance in regards to purchasing real-estate for rental purposes, as an 'absentee landlord', without hiring a property manager. My profession dictates that I am not in the area I am looking to purchase in and I am constantly moving. Being that Upstate NY, Westchester, and the NY Metropolitan area tend to be, to say the least, higher-dollar market, I am hesitant to look to a property manager while not physically present. While many individuals have proven track records and a plethora of experience, I am also aware of some real horror stories.

While I am, at 26, prepared to invest the time and capitol to get my project (no pun intended) off the ground, I am perplexed by this issue that faces me. My aunt, who is an established property-owner, says not to even consider the venture, due to this ethical dilema, i.e., would everything run the way I wanted it to be run in my absence?, would my tenants be properly taken care of in regards to the state of the building and their contracts, and, of course, the reason we invest in the first place; would I see the maximum profit and potential to further the venture (growth) as I see fit.

Essentially, this is the single, most pressing issue for me and the sole reason why I have not yet taken the leap of faith into one of the few markets of seemingly endless potential. Anyway, if I could get some opinions (I'll consider all sources, preferably experienced), I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you.

Mike

Real Estate Clubs are essential for any real estate investors. Whether they are beginner or experienced. I run a club in Michigan - National Real Estate Network. It is a premier Real Estate Investing Club with 200+ members. National Real Estate Network (NREN) has been growing at a rapid pace with 200 + members in short 14 months. NREN provides Real Estate Investing Tips, knowlege to members. NREN invites National Speakers experienced at different real estate investing strategies every month. NREN also has 1 full hour of networking; where new and experienced investors can network with each other. NREN has created EXPO like environment where Preferred Vendors can get tables and can market services to investors. This is great way for an investor to build Dream team. National Real Estate Network also provides access to a Software System called NiteOwl through which you can get comps; see arial view of house; get owner's information and also figure out at what price they bought the house. That itself is worth more than $300. NREN's yearly membership is only $150/year. That's a huge benefit for anyone who wants to take action!!
Real Estate Investment Clubs are meetings of minds and a forum for investors to learn from other investors and guest speakers and market their properties and services. I'm member of 4 other local REIA in Michigan.

Most of you make very good points. Real estate investing clubs can be great resources for deals and eduction but the reality is that you'll never buy property sitting in a meeting. Although the connections you make can be invaluable.

Now that home builders aren't building like they used to and it's becoming more difficult to sell a home in many markets around the U.S. the uninformed investors are leaving the industry in droves but NOW IS THE TIME TO BUY! Many savvy millionaires are going to be made in the coming years while all the analyst advise that real estate isn't the place to be. Trust me, right now a real estate investing meeting is a lot better place to be than a stock market investing club.

(And don't forget that there are many invaluable and inexpensive websites and books on the subject of real estate investing.)

Investment clubs are a great way to get exposed to other investors and new ideas but pick your club carefully. Some of them are progressive and on the cutting edge of new techniques and others are antiquated, stuck in their ways and unwilling to consider anything new.

Surrounding yourself with *successful* investors can fuel your passion for real estate.

Mark Gagliardi, Realtor Emerald Isle, NC

John makes an excellent point. People flock to a hot stock at the height of it's run only to bail out as the traders scream "sell". In Real Estate, the smart investor looks at the softening market as an ideal buying time. My clients make an average of $50,000 per transaction by understanding the extreme importance of timing in the beach market. We are like "swing traders"...timing the cyclical "mood" of our market. Looking for investor clubs in coastal Carolina's....any thoughts? Mark Gagliardi

Real estate investor clubs are definately a good thing. I am personally a member of close to 10 different groups. Over the last few years there has been a huge number of "Get Rich Quick Programs".

I decided to found my own real estate club. We are located in Roseville, Michigan. Last month alone we had over 130 guests at our event. We have been dubbed "Michigan's Premier Real Estate Investor's Club". Our mission is to provide an entrepreneurial atmosphere for real estate investors and professionals to reach greater real estate goals.

Please take the time to view our website at http://www.REIAofMacomb.com

We are a not-for-profit organization, and if anyone has questions on how to start a super successful real estate investors club like the REIA of Macomb, feel free to contact us.

February 22, 2007 11:42 PM

to mike, i have found that the best job an investor can have is to manage the managers when it is long distance (absentee) ownership. With a system in place, the strength of resolution to adhere to the system, unexpected (unannounced) visits to the property, setting up bank acounts in the locale that the manager can only deposit into, moving the funds into a dual access account for invoices, paying on invoices only, and remembering that you are the owner--will help to establish you as a true investor. I have found over the years that it has been easy to have my clients make a plan. That comes with the excitement of new property ownership. The problem comes with the implementation and followup. Many times, investors forget that the property they invested in needs nurturing, discipline and training, much like a new puppy. If you want to be able to leave that puppy alone in the house for a day you have to be willing to train and discipline for some period of time before leaving will get the results you desire.

REIA's are great resources in any market to network and learn real estate investing. Real estate investment associations or clubs do not need to be big or "profitable" in order to provide their members benefits. The game of real estate investing is about knowledge and in particular local real estate knowledge, so it doesn't matter what the curent market is; professionals or those that are educated and realistic can do quite well in an up or down market, and actually should do better in a down market. So I look forward to the "bad" real estate market and will see you at the next REIA meeting.

It seems that the last really hot real estate market in the U.S. is just south of the Salt Lake City (Utah) valley, specifically areas around the championship golf-course communities of The Ranches at Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs. Home sales and price appreciations are strong. The reasons for strong home sales seems to be a limited supply of homes and the increased migration of Californians to this area as e.g. Micron is hiring 1,000 new workers and 60% of Utah companies are planning to hire this year. Also, its expected that approx. 1 million people will move to the Wasatch front within the next 10 - 12 years.
The home appreciations are taking place because the whole Salt Lake City valley is a few years behind the national average - after the Olympics the real estate market took a dive with real estate prices beginning to recover in 2005 and the momentum is increasing.

$300k will still buy you a very nice newer home in this area, although some surrounding areas have already appreciated a lot in the last 6 - 9 months like Highland, Alpine, Cedar Hills, and even Lehi and Pleasant Grove, and also Saratoga Springs is appreciating quickly followed by The Ranches at Eagle Mountain which is still lagging behind a bit. Where else can you get million-dollar views of a lake, mountains, valley, city, canyon and hills at a bargain price?

Here are some Websites that might be interesting for researching the area:

Sir

The total value of real estate in NZ has more than doubled in past 6 years (Statistics NZ). This has lead to a huge consumer borrowing and spending binge, resulting in lowest unemployment in a decade and huge current and trade deficits. The debt service ratio and household debt is at records highs, savings are at their lowest levels. The Reserve Bank has warned about the trend of easy liquidity through overseas flows being unsustainable and has increased interest rates to moderate the housing price rise. The higher interest unfortunately attract more funds from overseas chasing higher yields resulting in a stronger dollar and continued increase in consumption. The going is good so far, but NZ needs to take a clue from countries that are depending on asset inflation (appreciation) and consumption for growth rather than productivity improvements and investments. The higher dollar and lowest productivity on record does not paint a healthy picture and it is only a question of time when the housing market stabilizes and then crashes (the population per sq km in NZ is among the lowest), there is plenty of land to expand. Any external/internal event can cause the foreigners to pull their money out of NZ, that will result in a crash in the kiwi and probably a recession. It is important for the Reserve Bank to come out with some other measures to get the macro structure in place before it is too late, once the party is over, someone has to pick the bill.

I work for a company that helps individuals convert their IRA funds into a self-directed IRA, LLC so they can control their funds with their LLC checkbook. This makes real estate investing with IRA funds easier and less expensive as there are minimal annual custodial fees, no fees for writing checks and no custodian to approve your purchasing decisions.

I cancelled their credit card to prove the point of being tired of being screwed each month and that I really did not need their card in the first place.

I have been involved in the purchase rehabilitation and sale of quite a number of homes from 2004 though early 2007. Also I have been involved with Real Estate Investment Group. What I noticed was that the successful non-Realtor investors had developed a close working relationship with one Realtor. In many cases that relationship was basically a partnership. The way that partnership worked varied but usually involved the Realtors time as his/her main investment in the partnership. Time not only finding & researching the properties in the beginning, & marketing/selling the properties at the end, but also time helping to coordinate the rehabilitation of the properties. Mainly that involved helping to design the improvements to the property to acting as one of the foreman of the project. In the end what made some of these groups very successful where others were not, was that they had a realistic view on profits and would shoot for reasonable profit levels on each home, get it to sell quickly and move on to the next project. That approach ties their money up for much less time. That approach is very critical in today's market conditions here in Morristown, Morris township, Madison, Chatham and Florham Park New Jersey, where there are lots of homes to choose from.

I have to agree with William Head- a lot of clubs out there are in the business of making money through 1. Membership 2. Referral Fees from builders and developers they allow to pitch their product and 2. "Gurus" who sell you books & tapes, splitting profit with the club.

Now- it's business and I know that. But I think that the disconnect between savvy real etstate investors and good investment properties is the line of communication. Investors go to clubs to learn and find deals. Clubs show investors the deals which give them the biggest cut/referral.

The smart investors are: 1. The ones that can do the deals themselves (but sacrafice a lot of time, money, etc)
2. The investors who cut out the middleman (the club) and do the due dilligence to find companies that actually offer investment properties at a discount already.

I think if you go to Yahoo.com and search "turnkey real estate investment properties" you may find some alternatives...

Wow, that's a lot of comments regarding REI Clubs. I agree, RE investors need to be savvy and do their own due diligence, and a club is a great way to learn those skills. I own two REI Clubs in CA which come under the umbrella of a company called Regent Investment Clubs. Regent finds and schedules both educational and investment speakers for the clubs under their umbrella - 20 at last count.

Personally, I have created great partnerships by attending REI Clubs. I found my mentor at one club meeting and also an investment opportunity I decided to participate in. It is pre-construction and should be complete in the next couple of months. Do I jump on every opportunity that is presented? No. I look at what my goals are, what the opportunity represents, whether the numbers work, and the credibility of the speaker/company.

As a club owner, I hope to empower others to look at their own situations in a different light and maybe then they will be able to take that first step towards their financial freedom.

To find a list of clubs, visit www.regentclubs.com/calendar.cfm.

I am new here in USA investing market. I flipped real estate in Europe for the last 2 years and I would like to join a club in an Inland Empire CA. Idealy one that does not center itself on collecting the fees, getting kickbacks from the builders and selling their Gurus. If you know of any " real" investors club not far from Rancho Cucamonga, where I can actually learn something and hook up with good people please be so kind and spare me the hustle of going to clubs that are not very conductive and point me in the right direction - jerryfranc@excite.com 949 573 5920.

Association of Private Lenders

July 18, 2007 01:08 AM

Real Estate Investment Clubs are great places to make contacts and learn from more experienced investors. You should not expect to receive all the information that you will ever need for investing in real estate by attending monthly club meetings. However, you should look at getting involved in your local club because it can be a place that speeds your learning curve and protects you from jumping into bad investments if you are new to real estate investing.

At your club's monthly meetings you may also find private individuals who lend their money to real estate investors. Private lending can help you build your real estate business. And private lending typically pays the lender rates between 8 to 18% depending on the type of investment.

If you want more information about private lending, you can get free information from the Association of Private Lenders at http://www.securityandreturns.com

I hope you find a great supportive environment at your local real estate investment club.

I am a real estate investor in the South Jersey / PA area. I recently purchased a property in the Philadelphia area and I am in the process of rehabbing it. The cost to rehab the property is higher than I estimated because I did business with a bad contractor, so I now have to pay for double work. I was considering legal action to recover some of my loss if possible. Can anyone recommend an attorney or advise what course of action I should take to recoup some of the money I paid to this contract that did not complete the job I paid for?

I am the Manager of Club Relations at Investing In Real Estate Clubs on the web at www.Investing-In-Real-Estate-Clubs.com. As I am also an Realtor and an Investor, I attend several different clubs in the Southern California area. The club I manage has been going strong for the past few years. We are successful because we focus on education and networking! We encourage our participants to come and learn from our speakers and network with others in attendance. Many come looking to add to and/or build a team with the understanding that real estate investing works best when you have a team to assist you. At our club meetings at any given time, there may be beginning and experienced investors in attendance as well as those who hold professional positions such as CPA's, Attorneys, Realtors, Loan Officers, Hard Money Lenders, Appraisers, etc.

We have a great set up in that we meet weekly in local restuarants and our networking takes place over dinner which fosters a real family/friend kind of atmosphere.

What I can say for sure is that if your purpose is to be a real estate investor, you should not leave your success in the hands of another - YOU HAVE TO EDUCATE YOURSELF . . . continuously. Read, attend seminars, join a Real Estate Association, network, ask questions, and, of course, actually do something-buy real estate. Are you really an investor if you never actually invest?? One ancient manuscript says "faith without works is dead". If that is true, then it stands to reason that Education without action is only information. Real education is properly APPLIED information - ACTION IS REQUIRED.

Whether you are bearish or bullish on investment clubs or even on investing, I leave you with two comments: 1) Your networth is only as great as your network. 2) The BEST time to buy real estate is ALWAYS five years ago!

May I encourage you to start now; set some action goals; become a lifetime learner; and network, network, network!

To your success!

Investing in single family homes and small multifamily homes may be challenging at this time due to the recent run up in prices. The prices of commercial properties on the other hand reflect the amount of cash flow generated. The value of the property is directly related to the Net Operating Income. If you are interested in an investment club focucing exclusively on income producing commercial property, please send an email to rthompson@creativecommerciallending.com

My organization, The New Jersey Real Estate Investment Club, has been in exisitance almost 4 years and now has over 1,400 members. We meet 2 to 3 time per month in various locations around New Jersey, including Hoboken which is a quick PATH train ride from NYC. Check us out at www.NJReClub.com. I do find that those organizations that are associated with national organizations such as the RIAs spend much of their time trying to sell stuff to their members. I think that this is because they are pressured by the national association and because they have to pay steep fees to the national in order to operate. Our organization is about Education and Networking. Unlike most clubs you don't need to pay an annual fee to attend an event.

I am administrator for a good vehicle for real estate clubs. It is a fund which encourages investors to participate in the fund. It only invests in tax liens and deeds, so the profit potential is enormous. With the investors finding the finest properties at the tax sales and the fund being the hard money source.

I am interested in purchasing preforeclosure in Jacksonville, Florida. I been doing a good bit of reasearch and I'm starting to see that alot of the homes that are on the preforeclosure list are being sold at top price by realestate agents. For example a house that owed $145,000 but the value was $220,000 the agent was trying to sell it for $225,000. Can anyone give me advice on where to begin and if this is an good idea?

Ralph Marcus Maupin Jr. (Mark)

October 27, 2007 09:01 PM

MSN Money Article stated to deal to with Real Estate Clubs that have been in Business for awhile, stating long they have been in business the better. I do not agree with that. In all Markets you need to look to what the club is doing and what there results are.
A Real Estate Investors Association is group of like minded people out to help each other on the common goal of real estate investing. A real estate investment association is many times referred to as REIA. This real estate investing group is formed for the continuing education and networking benefit of its Club members.
Real Estate Investment Associations meet regularly all over the country. They hold there meetings usually on monthly basis in the evening. Guests can usually come free to a first meeting or pay thereafter a meeting by meeting charge. Most of Clubs encourage Membership as that is how they get their source of funds to run on. Whether you are a new or seasoned investor, membership in your local association is a priority. There is old saying it’s never too late to learn something new. These meetings are full of valuable real estate investing information. Learn from those who have been in the “investor land mine fields”. Having a place and a setting for putting your dream team together through the networking, which is priceless? How many times have you heard, “It’s not who you are, but who you know that makes you successful?” The people you meet at these meeting will move you to a whole new level of results by cutting through the red tape of investing. You can not believe what you get in value from the membership investment. It’s having a successful local expert as your personal coach for one year of training on writing a success book and all you pay him is $100 to $200 dollars.
Individual members benefit from meeting both new and seasoned investors. What great places where newer investors go to learn and work for seasoned investors, finding them deals and getting paid while learning. That’s right, they make money, learn the business without risking their own dollars or credit. Being Wholesaler of real estate is sometimes call being bird dog for the seasoned investors. Growing up I always heard the term “that dog don’t hunt”. This holds does not hold true in the real estate investing club business. Here the meaning is “this dog does hunt”. The new investor will learn as they earn free from risk and pressure. They have the experienced investor along as your coach and mentor.
There are resources tables at the investor meetings where every one brings their fliers and business cards. This is great way for networking. A chance to get know each other and promote different recourses like Investor Real Estate Agents, Investor’s Mortgage Loan Officers, Hard Money Lenders, Real Estate Attorneys, And Real Estate Minded CPAs, Accountants, Property Managers, Contractors, Home Inspectors, Title Companies, and Wholesalers? Real Estate Business Suppliers with products or services for the real estate investor seeking repeat business can network at their local REIA to meet potential customers. Like minded people working together can move mountains.
These REIAs and Real Estate Clubs invite national and local speakers and experts to teach their members new and innovative techniques that when applied, will bring success. A lot of National Speakers have investing courses, boot camps and home study courses for sale to the attendees. Having local experts at meetings who are doing what you want to do is priceless. Membership cost to most clubs range $100 to $200 dollars yearly. Some of the REIAs provide forms disk for their members. It is always advised that members check with their own attorneys before using.
What to Look for in a Successful Real Estate Investor Association (REIA)
1. Owners or board members invest in real estate in the market that club is located. Many of the most successful REIAs have expert real estate board members or owners.
2. They provide a good mix of local and national expert speakers
3. They have an online presence – they provide resources and information their members can access – like forms, seminars, and up coming event calendar, list of real estate terms and what they mean
4. Meetings are held regularly (at least monthly). Many of most successful groups have more than one meeting a month
5. Speakers give great value – they give more than promised
6. Membership includes benefits – forms disk, access to recordings of local speakers
7. Opportunities to network with like minded people
8. Local REIA to be member National Associations for investor club to gain advise and coaching.
You are moving to new city how are going to find out about the market and Real Estate investing Clubs are located? Do a Google search on any of following: Real Estate Investing Associations, Real Estate Investing Clubs, Real Estate Club, Landlord Clubs, Real Estate Investing Training Classes, Real Esatate Investor Network, Real Estate Licensing Classes, Real Estate Investing, Real Estate Investing Courses, Real Estate Boot Camps, and REIA Groups.
Where to go for investing in Real Estate as home buyer or real estate investor for: Investment education, mentoring, classes, seminars, boot camps, free real estate forms, networking, and expert speakers. http://MegaEveningEvent.com

The largest real estate club in the US is the Learning Annex. They pay a fortune for celebs like Trump & Tony Robins to draw crowds of 15-25 thousand. Then the parade of gurus who sell their courses and seminars begins and the Annex keeps the majority of the revenue.

The main difference between the LA and a REIA club is that the club lets the speaker at a club keeps most of the money from their sales because of the smaller volume, and a GOOD club will do 2 things:

1. Good clubs are very selective about who speaks and only choose those who’s product or service has a proven track record of student success, such as www.creriches.com .

2. Good clubs help investors find good deals - the kind that are so good you can get 100% financing with no credit check. Won’t get that at the Annex!

3. Good clubs facilitate quality networking, because that’s how partnerships are formed and how many deals are consummated when finders and funders come together. Not much networking goes on at the Annex either.

Having spoken at many REIA clubs around the Nation, I can say with confidence SOCALCIA is San Diego is by far the best.

Investment clubs and companies can be a good source for investors. Performing due diligence on a company is just as important as doing it on a potential property. I feel that finding a club or association, or company that will help you achieve and realize your investment goals is possible.

No matter what your investing strategy is, there are "good," groups out there. I wouldn't want to rain on anyone's parade, but as an investor, be aware of who you may be working with. Are they a lender first? Do they assign properties? Are they a get rich quick scheme?

Who knows?

Our company is a property management and Real Estate Brokerage in the Cincinnati, Ohio and Northern Kentucky market place. We have contacted many Real Estate Investment Clubs on both coasts to inform their members of the excellent Real Estate opportunities in this area and the infrastructure we have established to help investors buy, sell, rent and manage their R/E investments. Every club we have contacted wants to charge us astronomical rates to share this info with their members. This is after the members have paid fees to join the club,attend the monthly meetings etc. This leads us to believe that the majority of clubs are out to make money for themselves in the name of helping the members. If anyone is looking to invest in a stable R/E market, with low taxes and have a team of R/E professionals to support them in every aspect of being a successful investor email me at: Jeff@diversifiedpropertymanagement.com

There is some truth to what the writer states about investment clubs and presenters/speakers. But there is a large portion missing from this story. That is the great resources, partnerships formed, leads, contacts, and business opportunities that arise from Real Estate Investment Clubs.

It is crucial that your rental income covers not just your mortgage, but tax, insurance and management. And then leaves you a profit. That is a true cash flow positive property. It seems that with the changes in the market, high priced areas, over inflated neighborhoods that positive cash flow has become a word no longer connected with Real Estate investing.

We are also founders of several clubs, one in NYC, Philly, Long Island and soon to be in Hoboken, and we teach and assist investors new and seasoned how to invest in cash flow positive real estate in Philadelphia.

If anyone still believes that you can make a profit each and every month on a rental property, then I commend and congratulate you, because we do exactly that.

Any interest or feedback please email us Robert@fivacorp.com

I have just had the opportunity of reading this article. We conduct a monthly meeting that tries to encompass the best of both worlds. We might do a lecture on the value of buying a small to medium commericial property. We go over all the pros and cons associated with the property. What we do that is different is that we actually do live case studies that gives the buyer and our group the ability to go out in a group see the property in a non-pressure situation that the group will go back and evaluate if this is a great buying opportunity. I read a quote once and it stated that you either learn through your own costly mistakes or the mistakes of others. So in closing I am a big supporter of Associations that can assist would be investors to attain success faster than they would without the group or associations. I advise all potential investors that would like to join a group to do your homework, contact some of the members, go to a meeting to see if the information is valuable.

Alot of beginner investors don't have the funds to start investing in property. They have to get a loan or borrow the money to purchase the property first. Or at the least, if it is a forclosure, put earnest money down. If you go to http://www.alternatehomefinancing.com, They give the funds to you to go out and purchase a home through note-buying. All you have to do is find the buyers, they pre-qualify them, they purchase the house for you, and help you finalize the close.

Investors From Europe Buy Real Estate In United States Many investor from europe and the uk are buying real estate in the united states. I've interviewed a real estate agent in california a week ago and he was telling me how much the market was bad until he started to work with investors from europe and the uk."They just have a lot of money" he said."I met them during a spring brake in europe. I said to my self there is no work anyway so I will go and travel a little bit.I think it's the best vacation I ever had and it's still continuing , the only difference is that now I'm actually making money".Investors don't need any green card, good credit, bad credit or visa. They only need to put a least 35% of the purchase price as a down payment.These investors will get a higher interest rate and if they will put 50% as a down payment they will probably get a much lower interest rate.Today the euro is much higher then the dollar.So if the american investors are excited about the foreclosures can you imagine the europeans?For the europeans everything is much cheaper than for americans, because the value of the euro as oppose to the dollar.Can a foreigner really get a loan in america?Sure they can get a loan, just like an american investor can get a hard money loan without showing any credit information, they just need to show interest. interest for a mortgage lender is measured with money. banks or hard money lenders will loan you the money but you will have to put as a down payment a big chunk of your money. Than you will not going to loose the property you've purchased and get the banks in trouble.Also there are many banks out there that are selling their Loans or notes to foreigners just because they need to take some loans off of their shelves, just the way you're trying to avoid foreclosure or trying just to sell the house.Banks today have to deal with so many issues like foreclosures, bankruptcies, notes and money in general.Most banks that have loaned money to borrowers in the past 3 years are not protected or insured. Three years ago the bank started to loan 1st and 2nd mortgages, 2nd mortgages are the cause of them not having mortgage insurance. So because they don't have mortgage insurance they will loose their money if a foreclosure is placed.So why did the banks offered borrowers 2nd mortgages?Because it was easy to qualify and a lot of borrowers tried to avoid refinancing their 1st mortgage.Banks just wanted to make money and more money and that's what they did.Now the banks are not willing to Loan 2nd mortgages anymore.Read other articles I wrote to learn more about mortgage insurance.http://hardmoneyloans.org

I have been a local investor in Jackson,Ms for 4yrs. I started with a partner, then went out on my own in April. Our agreement was that I would not use the same investors, as he brought them to the business. I am looking for investors that want to invest in my area. Most of the rental properties in my area are owned by out of state investors. I can wholesale the properties so that the investor can be @ a 60%-70% loan to value, AFTER rehab. I have good, dependable rehab crews & property management companies available. I oversee the entire process, as the investors can't be hands on. My contact # is 601-260-6674

I HAVE DISCOVERED that the Texas real estate investment market is and will be bullet-proof as long as energy is a hot button issue, and as long as shipping is strong (Houston port is largest in nation), and as long as agriculture remains strong. All above is proven by US Census data that says Houston is the fastest growing population in the US, followed closely by other TX cities. I have also discovered that fixer apartment complexes are abundantly findable in Texas, because owners let their properties get away from them. I have looked at thousands of properties on the Internet in the last year and have found ten diamonds in the rough. I even found a senior citizen complex in foreclosure and got it for 40% og building cost. Now that Ike has hit Texas, there will be even more opportunities. Best of all, lenders are eager to make loans in TX! If you have questions email me at wthaaland@gmail.com

This is a great site for individuals or groups looking to invest and focusing on the return as well as appreciation.

I live in Mexico and sold general real estate for several years. Just this year I was introduced to what I call True Investment real estate. We have several projects in the Puerto Vallarta area ideal for investors who want complete management and booking services. One incredible option is a condo hotel under construction with a guaranteed return on your investment of 14% in 2 years. Through these rental programs, the return is maximized by daily and weekly rental rates for resort properties.

Anyone wishing more information please contact me. We also have monthly no cost seminars with legal and financial planning professionals to guide you in your investment decision.

Becoming a profitable real estate investor is not an overnight process. It takes time, money (though not necessarily your own), experience, and a network to really succeed in this game. One of the most critical elements, however, is having the right education! Knowledgeable investors can succeed in any market, especially challenging ones, because they can create value and see opportunities that amateur investors miss .

The "Softer Side" of Hard Money: Private Financial Club Integrates Hard Money Programs to Combat the Foreclosure Epidemic Nationwide.

Private Financial Club's "BE THE BANK" Message is Exploding; and More People are Becoming Club Members in Order to become a "Hard Money Financier" Generating 21% Returns on their Investment Dollars...That's 42% per annum!!

Private Financial Club, Inc. is expanding and taking their “BE THE BANK” message nationwide.

This environment has created a void; and the Private Financial Club’s top leaders have developed key solutions that are focused on their Hard Money-Be the Bank philosophy and unique “exit” strategies in order to advance the Property Investors and Private Financiers' success across the board.

Investors and Financiers will learn new methods in tackling the challenges that they encounter due to the downturn in the lending arena which has now touched the Hard Money industry.

"This is a great opportunity to connect and the perfect environment to meet like minded individuals looking for each other" stated Yvonne Jones, President and CEO of Private Financial Club, Inc. She further announced: "Property Investors are looking for Private Hard Money Financiers; and our Club Members, the “Financiers,” are receiving up to 21% on their investment dollars by providing short-term notes and 10% - 13% interest on long-term notes.

Hello,

I am Barr. Frank Wright of Frank Wright & Associates,I have a client that wants to make a huge investment in your country. My client has directed me to make contact and find a suitable partner for joint venture.

One of the pre-condition for this business relationship is that his prospective partner must be vast in business management and must be ready to travel or receive representatives to discuss issues concerning any major investment. This was strictly specified by my client as a pre condition that will be in existence before the establishment of business agreement between my client and the prospective partner.

My client is a top government official and would not like any scandal and he is ready to shelve official protocol to protect you and him from such scandal or any act capable of bringing both of you in lime light. Though this transaction will be done within the premix of the law guiding both countries.

Let us know if you are qualified for this great business venture that will be highly beneficial to both parties by providing us with your contact details. We shall cement further understanding once we hear from you.

Regards,

Frank Wright Esq.

$1250000 4 Family Brownstone,141st St.,between Hamilton Terrace St. & St. Nicholas Ave (Harlem / Morningside)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Built in early 1900, the Brownstone Townhouse (1 of only 5 similarly/attached houses on the block) is located on 141st Street between 2 beautiful historic Baroque style Churches, one Church on the corner of Hamilton Terrace Street & 141st, and the other Church on the corner of St. Nicholas Ave. & 141st. Adding to the historic splender of the block is the Hamilton Grange House, which sits inside St. Nicholas Park, directly across the street from the Brownstone Townhouse. Currently undergoing restoration, the Hamilton Grange House is the only National Monument to former Secretary of State Alexander Hamilton and was recently visited by former First Lady Laura Bush. St. Nicholas Park has towering Oak trees, beautifully landscaped shrubs and flowers, and a playground; all of which the Brownstone has an unobstructed view. The 3rd & 4th floors of the Brownstone also has a panaramic view of the City College of New York (especially the Gothic style Castle) and surrounding area.

The entrance to the City College of New York ( former Secretary of State Colin Powell is a graduate) is a 60 second walk up the block and the prestigious Harlem School of the Arts is a 60 second walk down the block. These 2 educational institutions give the block an atmosphere of academic exuberance, reminiscent of "College Towns" of old. The Brownstone Townhouse is a part of the Hamilton Grange Home Association. Hosting such speakers as the local Police Chief, Fire Chief and Politicians, the Home Association membership consists of Doctors, Lawyers, CEO's, TV Personalities, etc.

The Brownstone was renovated from a 1 family to a 4 family in 2004. The house is not of jumbo sized, but 20' by 60', 3200 square footage. A one-bedroom, floor-thru apartment is on each individual landing. The apartments, which have been described as very NICE, consists of standard wood kitchen cabinetry and marble-like counter tops. The 1st floor apartment has a private entrance, a large backyard patio, with mature Apple and Berry trees; and perennial flowering shrubs. The Brownstone Townhouse was renovated specifically for the purpose of renting.

Although there is no original wood-work , fireplaces, or detail inside the apartments, the staircase, entrance doors/gate, hallway(s) ceiling and molding(s) are all original and detailed. The intercom, boiler/heating, sprinkler, plumbing and electrical systems are 5 years old, and each apartment is individually metered. The apartments and the building in general is in very good condition, but there are needed minor repairs in and around the building, specifically to the roof and needed pointing at the back of the building.

Built over a flowing underground stream, the houses on the block is situated atop a large stairway, jutting out of the stream. So, when there is heavy sustained downpour of rain or snow, the basement takes on a little water. However, the basement walls are built out of porous material, whereby allowing the water to flow down hill, from building to building; out-pouring on St. Nicholas Ave. The foundation of the building suffers no damage. But, due to dampness, the basement can only be used for storage. If you wish, the basement can be dried with the building of a inexpensive trench.

The subway (A,B,C, D, #1 & 2 trains) is a 5 minute walk away and mid-town Manhattan is a 15 minute subway ride. Public bus service is located down the block on St. Nicholas Ave, as well as up the block on Convent Ave. On 125th street (15 minute walk), there are stores such as Block-Buster, H&M, Duane Read, Marshalls, Old Navy, and Lowes Theatre, Apollo Theatre, etc. There is a neighboorhood YMCA, StarBucks, super PathMart, Fairway, etc.

The apartments are currently occupied by young professionals, long-term tenants, who pay their rent on time, with little to no guest-traffic in the building. The tenants are very satisfied with their apartments and have hopes of remaining in the building after the sale. However, the tenants have also been informed that after the conclusion of their current lease, their continued occupancy is up to the incoming Owner.

Pictures, info regarding current rent-roll, taxes & insurance, etc can be obtained by calling 212-926-1295 or e-mail dorisoyab@aol.com. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

Thanks a lot blogger for such a nice and informative blogging about property investment .A successful property investor makes money both in a rising and in a declining market. For example, during a rising market, property investors can release some of the equity built up over time to either purchase additional properties or to keep some money aside to be used at a later date. During a declining market, they buy lower-priced bargain properties I appreciate this blog .

Offering unrivaled service by distinguishing myself through my ability to seamlessly integrate experience, market knowledge, and cutting-edge technology to maximize value for you and create solutions to achieve strategic investments.

I get Investment information early enough to pass the savings on to you. There are no Investor Restrictions. Individual and Group Investors are offered ample Investment Opportunities before the public has a chance! I present properties that are different from the typical.

My Mission ––-

Matching the Investor with the right investment performance is how I gage the quality of the end product. Just running the numbers is meaning-less, if they are not based on the personal assessment needs of each party. For my Clients / Investors, I study Cash liquidity, Flexibility or inflexibility, Taxes and income. Appreciation and depreciation of real property, risk and liabilities.

Hello Investors

I currently have a property located in INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA. I am selling for $30,000. It's need repairs estimating
$15,000 to bring it up to the ARV. The current market rent is 800-1000. As a result it would have a positive cash flow of at least $200 and equity of about 50,000 since the conservative ARV is about 100,000. Anyone interested please give me a call or email. My contact information is below. Buyer must be able to close in 30 days. Thanks you.

About

BusinessWeek editors Chris Palmeri, Prashant Gopal and Peter Coy chronicle the highs and lows of the housing and mortgage markets on their Hot Property blog. In print and online, the Hot Property team first wrote about the potential downside of lenders pushing riskier, "option ARM" mortgages and the rise in mortgage fraud back in 2005—well ahead of many other media outlets. In 2008, Hot Property bloggers finished #1 in a ranking of the world's top 100 "most powerful property people" by the British real estate website Global edge. Hot Property was named among the 25 most influential real estate blogs of 2007 by Inman News.
