Secrets To Subject -To Success with William Tingle VIA Skype at BIG Chattanooga Thurs. February 21st.

Beginning Investor Group (BIG)
Secrets Of Subject-To Success
with William Tingle VIA Skype
on Thur, February 21st, 5:30PM at
Wally's Restaurant in East Ridge
NO Charge For ALL Attendees at this time.

William TingleWhat does buying a house “subject to” really mean? After all, there are all types of subject to clauses one can put into a contract when buying a home. This includes subject to attorney review, buyers inspection, finding a quality resident (as in a lease-option), or as we’re referring here, the existing mortgage. Can an investor really just take over someone’s mortgage payment on their original loan, and have the deed transfered?

Absolutely!!

But why wouldn’t the seller just sell the home? Why would they give up equity or title? Why would they jeopardize their credit?

It seems to make no sense, but there are reasons why a homeowner would just hand over the deed. Unfortunately, bad things happen to good people, and sometimes they get themselves into tough situations or they just plain run out of time.

If this sounds like Thor's magickal hammer for acquiring properties, IT IS!
BUT, there is a time and reason to use such a tool, and there is no one better to show you how to use that tool than William Tingle.

For over 10 years William operated a real estate business where he wholesaled and rehabbed numerous properties each year but found his real niche in what he calls “Sub2”, buying subject to the existing financing. To date, he has taken the deed on over 500 properties and even though he “retired” in Belize in 2010, he still continues to buy 20 to 25 properties a year in this manner in select markets throughout the United States.

William will be teaching "The Secrets Of Subject-To" at BIG Chattanooga, Thursday, February 21st via Skype. RSVP NOW and learn:

RSVP NOW on Facebook or on Meetup and join us on Thursday, February 21st at 5:30PM at Wally's Restaurant located at 6521 Ringgold Rd in East Ridge, TN. You will get to ask questions directly to William and get answers. If YOU have successfully accomplished a Sub2 deal or two, come tell us about it! Network with other investors and build friendships and relationships for each others success. Be sure to have a delicious supper from the menu or from the buffet at Wally's Restaurant. DO NOT MISS this event!! RSVP TODAY, and We will see YOU at BIG Chattanooga!

Russ HinerNew investors often have lots of questions when it comes to evaluating a property and doing their due diligence. Questions like…How do I know if a property is a good deal or not? Should I do my due diligence before or after I get a property under contract? How do I determine the property’s value before and after repairs are made? How do I determine how much repairs will cost? How do I check title? How much valuable information can I pull from public records?.

On Thursday, November 15, at Wally's in East Ridge, we have Russ Hiner, a seasoned investor with more than 30 years experience.

Hooking It Up! Partnering with Experienced Investors

Thur, September 20th @ 5:30PM – Wally's Restaurant, East Ridge, TN
Hooking It Up with Partnering
with several experienced investors
on Thur, September 20th, 5:30PM at
Wally's Restaurant in East Ridge
NO Charge For ALL Attendees at this time.

BIG Chattanooga REIA LogoBill Cook told us at Chattanooga REIA recently that real estate investing is simple, but it isn't easy. What about those people on TV that fix and flip houses? They make it look like it's a piece of cake. People, please remember, TV is for entertainment and fantasy. I will take the advice of someone who has realised their goals in life through investing much quicker than someone who is on TV just to entertain me.

As a new investor, it's a scary feeling of not knowing what to do, how much to offer, how to figure repair costs, paperwork, marketing to buy then to sell. Sounds like alot? There's even more that I can't go into here for sake of brevity.

One thing that I have seen my real estate teachers do, when they want to learn something new to them, is find someone who is already doing what they wanted to do and find a way to partner up with them. You can learn much more than any course could ever teach you when you partner up with someone with experience on a deal or a problem.

Why would an experienced investor want to partner up with me?

This Thursday, September 20th at BIG Chattanooga we will have several investors in the audience that we will interview about why they partner, who they will work with, the kind of deals they are looking for, and you will have the chance to ask them questions as well. This is not a presentation, more of a discussion or brainstorm session. You will learn much more in this manner as opposed to a teacher/class type of setup. We want you to interact, get information that you can use, be inspired and leave motivated to find and solve real estate problems.

RSVP NOW on Facebook or on Meetup and join us on Thursday, September 20th at 5:30PM at Wally's Restaurant located at 6521 Ringgold Rd in East Ridge, TN. Be sure to have a delicious supper from the menu or from the buffet at Wally's Restaurant. DO NOT MISS this event!! RSVP TODAY, and We will see YOU at BIG Chattanooga!

Reviewing Purchase Agreement &
Not Taking Sellers Place In Quicksand
on Thur, July 19th, 5:30PM at
Wally's Restaurant in East Ridge
NO Charge For ALL Attendees at this time.

BIG Chattanooga LogoThis month at BIG Chattanooga, we will be reviewing and discussing the previous two month's topics. In May, we had Joey English showing us multiple aspects of the Purchase and Sale Agreement, and for June, we had Larry Harbolt discussing about How to solve the sellers real estate problem, not replace ourselves in the sellers position.

If you attended either or both these events, bring your notes, your questions, and your examples if you practiced anything that Joey or Larry spoke about. If you did not attend one or both events, come on down to Wally's anyhow. You will more than likely learn something new and or have an "A-HA!" moment that will help you in your real estate endeavors.

These interactive discussions are a new step in your real estate education. We want you there when the topics are presented of course, however, we did not discuss them as a group. That has now changed and for the better. Questions that you didn't have at the event, but thought of them afterwards, or perhaps you used one or several techniques our presenters offered and you would like to share them with the group. This WILL be encouraged because we all can learn from each other.

RSVP NOW on Facebook or on Meetup and join us on Thursday, July 19th at 5:30PM at Wally's Restaurant located at 6521 Ringgold Rd in East Ridge, TN.

Have you been a “real estate investor” for several months or even years without doing your first deal? What is holding you back? Fear? Lack of money? Credit Problems? Lack of Focus? Are you afraid you will screw it all up?

Why make such a big deal about your first deal? Well, it’s the hardest deal you will do, but once you get through it, your belief in yourself and real estate investing will rise dramatically. You will be on your way to becoming a true real estate investor.

BIG will have experienced local and regional investors speaking and leading interactive exercises on relevant topics on a beginners level. We also have mentors attending that can take you by the hand and can walk you through that first deal. So please join us on the 3rd Wednesday of every month. Arrive around 5:30PM so you can get some delicious food at Wally's in East Ridge.
