Would You Like to Become the Go-To Person in Your Market for Wholesale Deals?

Are you interested in finding wholesale deals at will? Do you have all the deals you can buy and sell? Are you interested in finding hot deals no one else can? If so, then you need to be at the Atlanta REIA Meeting on the 7th where I will be the guest speaker.

My name is Rock Shukoor and marketing has become one of my strong suits and I am very proud of the results I have produced over the years from most of my campaigns. At the Atlanta REIA Meeting, I will be showcasing my guerrilla marketing skills and show you how to find at least one deal a day. 

Yes, that’s right, I said ONE deal per day! I will show you at least 7 ways to find 7 great deals in 7 days and sell them to cash buyers who are always on the lookout for new deals. Your job is to find great deals well below market value and find a cash buyer to purchase them from you for a little more.

When you get good at finding great deals, finding cash buyers will be the easy part since we are now moving into a seller’s market. There are more cash buyers now than there have been in the past few years. The hedge fund companies are buying everything they can get their hands on and are helping create inventory shortage. Local investors and out of state investors that are looking for properties in the metro Atlanta area are not able to find enough great deals because all the low hanging fruit is being bought up quickly. This is where your marketing knowledge comes into play.

When you know how and where to find the ideal target properties, how to negotiate with the owners and how to put their properties under contract, you will become the go to person in your market for wholesale properties which is exactly what you need to be.

Even if you are already a wholesaling expert, I may be able to teach you a new trick or two. However, if you are not an expert and want to make lots of easy money wholesaling houses, then you must attend this event.

I will be sharing everything you need to know on how to find deals quickly without using any money. If you have a phone, access to a computer and the desire to become successful, then you can do this business.

I can teach you everything you need to know to find vacant “diamond in the rough” properties in your market, how to find the owners and how to contact them to make them an offer. All you have to do is to be there and have the desire to become successful and take the necessary action. I will explain the whole process: the small but vital details, where to find deals, how to find the sellers and how to stay focused to find one deal per day.

Here are some of the things I will teach you at the Atlanta REIA Meeting on April 7th:

  • Where to find deals
  • How to sell them in a flash
  • What market to choose
  • Where to get the list of prospects
  • What kind of properties to focus on
  • Where to get the money if you even need it
  • How to do the business on your own or how to partner with me
  • And much, much more…

I believe in rewarding action takers and entrepreneurs that are willing to do what it takes to change their lives for the better. Therefore, I will offer some bonuses to all those who are ready to take action by attending the meeting…

  1. A digital copy of my book, “Extraordinary Results by Ordinary Investors”
  2. A digital copy of my brand new book, “The Dynamic 6″
  3. Marketing audit of your business or one-on-one consulting (A $250 value).

I look forward to seeing you at Atlanta REIA on April 7th! This meeting is a must for any investor, new or seasoned. I believe in knowing your market, your audience and knowing where to find the product your buyers are looking for. See you at the meeting!

Important Information About Houses You May Want to AVOID! Houses that Will Be Hard to Sell or Rent

This month I decided to share with you my thoughts about some types of property you may want to avoid if you plan to maximize your profits from the deals you do. I have personally bought several of the houses I now recommend you think about not buying. I believe buying any of the following properties will definitely give you a financial seminar you really don’t want to take for numerous reasons.

I have taken a few of those financial seminars and I can tell you that you don’t want nor need to go there and make the same mistakes I have made. For those just getting started in the business these examples are a must for you to know so you don’t buy houses that will be extremely hard to sell or rent.

This is a two part article for April and May. 

Houses in Area’s with Many “FOR RENT” signs.

Any house located in an area with many For Rent signs leaves little hope of selling to a family who wants to live in that area and can qualify for a loan. Too many renters in any neighborhood will many times run out the families with small children who can qualify for a loan that want to buy.

Houses in Area’s with Many “FOR SALE” signs.

Too many FOR SALE signs usually indicate a problem in that neighborhood. Always be sure to find out why there are so many properties for sale before you make an offer to buy one of them. There has to be a reason, find out what the problem is.

Houses with a Flat-Roof.

A house with a flat roof  is not very attractive and will have more roof  leaking problems. Few people want houses with flat roofs for this very reason.

Houses With No Curb Appeal.

Ugly houses when looking from the street usually will not make buyers proud to show their extended families and friends their home. People want to be proud of their home and a house with no curb appeal will always be harder to rent or sell to families who can qualify for a loan.

Houses With Steep Driveways.

Steep driveways in different areas of the country where heavy snow or icing is normal, many buyers won’t want a house with a steep driveway and this type of house will be hard to sell or rent. Many of these older houses with steep driveways only have room for one car at the top of the driveway and most families have two cars; their other car will need to be parked in the street. This is not a desirable type of house to buy or rent because of this.

Houses On or Near Swampy Ground.

Damp swampy ground has too many issues to be very desirable. Most parents won’t like their children playing in standing water or in constant wet grass all of the time. Wet yards attract snakes, mosquitoes, allergies and will provide a perfect place for mold to grow and thrive. Believe me you don’t want one of these houses because they will be impossible to sell or rent.

Houses With VERY Small Front Yards Too Close to the Street.

Small front yards I have found are not popular with the majority of home buyers or long-term renters. Most people like a front yard where they can have some nice landscaping and get as far away as possible from the traffic noise.

Houses On Busy Streets.

Most families with children fear their children will dash out into the street and get hit by a fast moving car. They also don’t want difficulty backing into traffic and it will always be TOO NOISY for most buyers or renters. These properties are harder to sell or rent.

Houses In or Near a War-Zone.

Families that can qualify for a loan usually prefer NOT living close to areas where there is gang activity, drugs being sold on every corner, and undesirable people found everywhere.

Houses Near an Industrial Area Close to Factories.

This is NOT an area where most families want to live. Noise, Smoke and Fumes and heavy Semi-truck traffic is common. These areas are not beautiful areas to live.

Houses Near an Airport or a Busy Highway

Airports and busy highways are always VERY noisy. This is a turn off for most people who want to live in a quiet, peaceful area. 

Next month I will show you more houses you will want to avoid.
