How to Get All the Private Money You Need to Do Every Real Estate Deal You Want, with Alan Cowgill

            One of the best ways to buy bargain properties—whether those are homes, small multi-families, or apartment buildings—is to be able to offer “cash,” and when you have a whole passel of private lenders at your beck and call, that’s exactly what you’ll be able to do.

            Private money is THE BEST—it’s quick, low-hassle, often ‘no qualifying’ in the sense that private lenders care a lot more about the property than they do your credit, AND it has a feature that borrowing from banks and even seller financing doesn’t; you can get money for purchase AND repairs.

            That’s why COREE members use it to buy so many properties, and why new members are always asking, “Do you know any private lenders?”. But that’s not quite how it works.

            You don’t ‘find’ private lenders. You create them. And that’s exactly the topic Alan Cowgill will cover at our February meeting.

            Alan has been investing in real estate since 1995, and has used private money to do hundreds of transactions. Now, he’s the best known author/speaker/expert in the U.S. on the topic of how to legally and effectively find, screen, and recruit private lenders—even if you have limited cash, credit, and experience. He’ll share:

  • The 5 crucial steps to a private money deal
  • “Magic” words that get lenders to commit
  • Why private lenders are better than banks, lines of credit, hard money, and owner financing in many cases
  • How you might even be able to get private money with—get this—no monthly payments

If you’re tired of being at the mercy of institutional lenders, or crippled by not being able to offer cash and a quick closing on deals, or just want more insight into getting more private lenders than you have now, this meeting will be a turning point in your real estate business.


All About “Opportunity Zones,” with Scott Ellsworth

            One of the biggest recent changes to the tax law is also a huge opportunity for real estate investors—the creation of “Opportunity Zones,” where you can get very favorable tax breaks for buying and renovating properties, or even for investing in companies that do so.

            Of course, it’s the government, so it’s not as easy as just buying houses in the right areas —there are rules for set-up, rules for election, and rules for how long you’ll need to own the properties to get the biggest deductions. CPA Scott Ellsworth will explain the benefits, and what you have to do, at our early meeting.
