Connections, Contests, and Community…
and You’re Invited!

            Viruses, murder hornets, murder-by-tiger, the stock market roller coaster, the inventory drought, losing Kobe and Chadwick waaay too soon—it’s easy enough to look at 2020 as one long, slow train wreck that none of us could look away from.

Everything You Need to Know
to Make Money in Foreclosures

            No one wants to see a wave of foreclosures—but thanks to the nationwide economic shut down and massive loan delinquencies, they’re coming.

            The quickest way to move past this unfortunate situation and get back to a healthy real estate market is for real estate investors to buy them, fix them, and rent or sell them. And yes, make money and hire Americans in the process.

            Our October 1st meeting takes you through the opportunities and challenges at every stage of the foreclosure process, from pre-foreclosure to the public auction to bank-owned properties and beyond.

Why NOW is the best time to get started
in note investing
(Plus the basics of seller financing)

            Like every other strategy in real estate investing, investing in (or flipping) notes and mortgages as a distinct ‘cycle’. When note holders are worried about the economy—say, because there’s a 5.5% nationwide mortgage default rate, or 10% of Americans are unemployed—they get more anxious to sell, and at better prices.

            That makes right now a great time to get started in this business, which coincidentally can be done 100% at home, with a phone and laptop, and never requires visiting a property. And the world’s leading expert in how to DO the note business from your kitchen table is Donna Bauer, who started that way herself, about 1,000 deals ago.

            Register for our online meeting August 6th, and she’ll share how you can do it too; Join us at 7:30 pm or at 6 for our early workshop about the basics of “Seller Financing” by clicking this link.

Two of the BEST Strategies in a Recessionary Real Estate Market--
One for BUYING, One for SELLING

               When you’re a real estate entrepreneur, there’s no such thing as a “bad” real estate market—but, yeah, some things work better when the market is ‘hot’, and other things work better when markets are ‘cold’.

               In our continuing mission to get you ready to prosper, stimulate the local economy, and help buyers and sellers get past problems that they can’t solve themselves, we’re bringing you expert advice on TWO important recessionary market tactics: Short Sales, and Repair for Equity Deals.

Thursday, June 4th
Only Attend This Meeting if 
You’re Worried About Retiring Rich, 
And Cutting Your Taxes…

Note change of date! We’re on Thursday, not Tuesday…

            Real estate investing is well-known for being a “tax advantaged” investment, but not too many people know about the two BIGGEST tax advantages: getting to build wealth by paying ZERO taxes, at least for a while, by investing in “Opportunity Zones” and by using the money in your self-directed IRA to do deals…

            You should attend this meeting if:

  1. You’re already buying properties in distressed areas—or plan to—but aren’t getting the huge tax breaks offered by the opportunity zone program
  2. You have a retirement plan that’s getting you crazy-low returns, and you need to boost those right away
  3. You don’t have a retirement plan, and you know you need one, and you need to start with a small contribution and build it FAST
  4. You know people with money in retirement plans, and you want to learn to work with them to to fund YOUR deals

            ‘Cause that’s what you’re gonna learn.

            Members and first-time guests are free; returning guests pay $35 (or, just take advantage of our super-cheap monthly online membership and get this meeting, plus a complete basic real estate education course, plus additional, education-packed special-interest focus group meeting every single week)…

Plus Running Your Rentals the High-Tech, Low Touch Way
AND “Ask the Experts” Your Biggest Questions…

               What’s your plan for the next 2 years?

               Is it to hunker down, cut costs, and hope for the best?

               Or is it to grab the opportunities to help sellers, partner with other investors, house Americans, and end the recession with MORE wealth and income for you and your family than you have right now?

               Our May 21 meeting brings you advice from super-seasoned experts in “Recession Investing” and how to convert your rental business to a higher-tech, more hands-off operation (yes, even if you’re not a mogul or a geek).

               Click here to get the whole agenda and your link to join…

“Ask the Expert” Tables are Back, and 
Here’s How you use them…

               Other than the chance to meet in person and build relationships with like-minded people, the thing members have missed most about our meeting is our ‘ask the expert’ tables, where you can get YOUR most pressing, or oddball, or bothersome questions answered by folks with decades of real-life experience.

               Well, they’re back.

               On May 21st, we’re holding a pre-meeting Zoom that’s just for that purpose. With 5 experts on topics ranging from wholesaling to creative finance to notes to rehabs, you’ll pick the room that’s right for you and ask away…AND learn from the questions of others.

               It’s for members only, so there’s a separate link to register HERE.

         …But we’re also bringing you the hardcore education you’ve come to expect from COREE, with sessions on how the “quick cash” strategies of wholesaling and retailing work, and how they work differently in a soft market, plus the always-important topic of how to estimate rehab costs correctly…

April 16th: Special invitation for COREE members to attend for FREE

The Legendary Pete Fortunato How to Swap Your Way to What You Want…

              What have you heard about Pete Fortunato?

              That he’s brilliant? An incredible deal-maker? Thinks so far outside the box that he’s completely forgotten that there IS a box?

              It’s all true, and if there’s one blessing to this whole virus mess, it’s that we’ve managed to wedge ourselves into his ordinarily too-busy-to-present schedule, for 90 whole minutes, where he’ll talk about ‘exchanging’ (but not 1031 exchanging, that’d be too vanilla)—using ‘currency’ (but not dollars, that’s be too easy) you don’t even know you have to get properties, options, notes, and other things you really want.

              Anyway, this is an amazing opportunity to learn from perhaps the most brilliant real estate/deal structuring mind alive today, and since it’s online, you’ll need a link to join in. Get that HERE.


April 7th  [Online]

What You Need in a Fast-Changing Market:
1. Up-to-the-second information
2. Experienced advice
3. The support of a like-minded community

And guess what we’re bringing you on April 7th?

     So here are two skills that become big deals when the market slows down: negotiating win-win creative finance deals with sellers, and understanding how to evaluate properties when there are a lot fewer comparables, and prices are dropping.

     Our April 7th meeting covers BOTH of those topics, with creative deal-making genius Bill Cook talking about how to help sellers and get amazing, no-qualifying financing and Vena Jones-Cox teaching a workshop on property evaluation in a slow market. Between them, they have well over 50 years’ experience in hot markets and cold.

      You’ll also get the chance to buy and sell deals, and check out our member deal of the month.

     This meeting is a ‘guest night’ where the usual $35 guest fee is WAIVED, but because it’s online and you have to have a link to get in, you have to register (and get the details) HERE.

What if Your Real Estate Business in 2020
Was More Profitable AND Easier AND More Fun?

            Success in real estate isn’t just about the money in the bank: it’s about whether you’re enjoying it, and fulfilled by it, and working on the parts of it that are most productive AND the most within your “genius zone” (yeah, you have one).

            If you’re looking to build a business that doesn’t just produce wads of cash, but also contributes to the world, and your community, and that you’re excited to be part of every day, take an evening to learn exactly how to create THAT business in 2020.

            Our super-special guest speaker, Shaun McCloskey, has literally coached the most successful real estate investors in the U.S.—names you’d know, and people with businesses you want for yourself—in this process. It’s been 2 years since he’s made an appearance at a local Real Estate Association, so this is a “don’t miss” event.

            Whether you’re brand new, or have a real estate business that isn’t…quite…what you’d hoped for, you’ll leave this meeting with a plan to build a business you’ll love, instead of just one that meets your financial needs. RSVP or get a first-time guest pass HERE
