 November 7th General Meeting:
"Zombie" Properties, Getting Over Your Fear, Expensive Bookkeeping Mistakes, and more...

7:30 Main meeting:

How to Get Practically Free Houses with Joe Lucas, esq.

Yeah, we thought that headline would get your attention—and yeah, it’s for real. Attorney Joe Lucas will discuss how to find and get all those “zombie houses” you’ve heard about—the ones where the bank is refusing to foreclose and yet the owner doesn’t want them. More importantly, he’ll talk about how you can use little-known legal processes to wipe out that mortgage, getting the property for just the amount of the back taxes and court fees!

You’ll learn:

  • How to identify opportunities to get free or nearly free property (Hint: they’re not found on the MLS!);
  • Information sources and data mining for the real estate investor;
  • How to obtain title through a quiet title action;
  • Which zombie foreclosures are worth pursuing, and which to run from;
  • How to time the payment of the property taxes so you don’t spend a bunch of money before you make money

   And most importantly, you’ll know a strategy that almost no real estate entrepreneurs are aware of, and see profit-making opportunities where others don’t!

Joe Lucas is an attorney with practice focused on real estate matters. He operates a 6-attorney firm with offices located in Dayton, Cincinnati, and Canton. Joe is a graduate of Harvard College and the University of Pennsylvania Law School. Before practicing law, Joe served in the U.S. Air Force.

6:00 Early meeting for new investors

Risk assessment: are the fears that are holding you back really “real”? 

      All the knowledge and education in the world isn’t going to do you a bit of good if you let fear or uncertainty stop you from “pulling the trigger”. In this powerful session, we’ll do a full-on analysis of your worst fears about losing money, getting sued, making a fool of yourself—whatever your issue is—and talk about what the real worst-case scenarios are. By bringing your fears out into the light, you’ll see that the worst that can happen if you DON’T do something is worse than if you DO.

      If you feel like you’ve become mired in analysis paralysis, you need to make absolutely sure that you get to this meeting: we promise that if you participate, it will get you off your rear and into the real estate world!

6:00 Early Meeting for Active Investors

Bookkeeping mistakes that are costing you money

Many active investors learned how to keep books on the fly—and let’s face it, a lot of us aren’t great at it. But there are some bookkeeping mistakes that are probably costing you a lot of money, either in extra fees, lost deductions, or incorrect accounting that could come back to bite you with big penalties. Learn the most common bookkeeping mistakes, along with tips for software and people who can make your bookkeeping a lot easier if you let them.
