September 23rd: All Day Saturday Workshop
Creative Buyers Get More Deals 

Real Estate investing is supposed to get you extra cash, extra time, and free you from the financial pressures of everyday life, right?

In a hot market like today’s, though, it can feel like there’s too much competition, not enough deals, and that it’s just all...too...hard.

You can give up, or you can get out of the run-of-the-mill thinking and strategies that are keeping other people stuck in neutral. You know, learn to do something that works, that makes money in a market like this and that everyone else isn’t already trying to do.     

Chris McClatchey’s all-day workshop outlines his proven system for:

  • How you can find deals that sellers will sell with no money down
  • How you can put thousands of dollars in your pocket at closing
  • How to use seller financing to get FREE & CLEAR in a few years, NOT a few decades
  • What to say to sellers when you’re asking them to carry financing for you
  • Which skills you’ll need to develop to influence sellers to sell their property to you at 0% interest.
  • How you can double and triple the number of deals you’re doing now (without doubling or tripling the work)

This workshop is for both new AND active investors who want to find more deals, get more cash flow, and hone their creative buying skills.


September 21st: REIA Main Meeting with Sham Reddy, CRS
7:30-9:00 Main meeting
How to Buy HUD Houses (and other foreclosures)
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is the largest insurer of sub-prime loans in the country, which is why the number of HUD foreclosures is expected to skyrocket soon. But HUD has a completely different process for seeing, bidding on, and buying properties than the typical bank. Sham Reddy, past president of Ohio REIA and a real estate agent with tons of HUD experience, will share the pros, cons, and opportunities in the HUD foreclosure market as well as the future of other foreclosures.




6:00-7:00 Early meetings
How to Make Offers that Will Get Accepted
with Vena Jones-Cox
Making offers right is one of the most crucial—and overlooked!—skills that a serious real estate investor can learn. From what to say to how to say it to what to do when the seller says “No,” you need to know how to handle the offer process to have the best chance of getting your offers accepted. Learn this and more at this month’s new investor meeting.

Truly Passive Real Estate Investing

We call ourselves real estate INVESTORS, but the truth is that wholesalers, retailers, and hands-on landlords are all trading hours for dollars, not being passive investors. In this session, we'll discuss options available to people who want to be TRULY passive, and make their money work for them instead of their time.

And There's Even More:

September 7th: REIAGC Main Meeting
The All-Money Meeting!
Every real estate entrepreneur needs to know multiple ways to get the financing to close those deals, whether they're rentals, flips, or something else.

At our September 7th meeting, you'll learn more about getting SELLER FINANCING, NON-TRADITIONAL FINANCING, and more, plus hang out with the greatest group of new and experienced real estate investors and flippers in the whole world!


7:30-9:00 Main meeting
Zero Down, Zero Interest, Zero Qualifying Seller Financing

NOTHING beats owner financing for flexible terms, easy qualifying, and the ability to create a win-win deal that your cash-paying competitors can’t touch. Plus, at no interest, your investments pay off in years instead of decades. In short, there’s nothing BAD about being able to negotiate owner financing.

Chris McClatchey has really perfected the strategy, which is why we’ve invited him back to his home state to share his experiences. He’s amazing at negotiating with sellers to put together profitable deals that work better for him AND work better than a lowball cash offer for his seller.

You’ll leave this meeting with real, implementable strategies for getting the owner financing you want.


with Chris McClatchey


6:00-7:00 Early meeting
Show Me the Money Panel with REIAGC's Creative Lenders

As long as we’re talking about financing properties, we should probably talk about how you can get money for rehabs, repairs, wholesale deals, and even rental properties when the seller can’t or won’t finance the deal for you. Our panel of lenders offers a wide variety of qualifying and no-qualifying financing for investors including hard money loans, repair loans, transactional funding for wholesalers, and even longer-term financing for landlords.

And There's Even More:
5:30      Free light dinner
6:00      Show me the Money workshop
7:00      Buy/Sell/Trade, Deal of Month, guest welcome
7:30      How to Retire Rich, Thin and Sexy
