In May, we continue our focus on how you can effectively participate in our exceptional real estate market by offer solutions people need. Recently, we have looked hard at seller financing and raising private money. This month we look at another creative way to solve issues while maximizing your investments – lease options. Yes, lease options, but this time with a twist – “cooperative lease options”.  Also, AZREIA is moving into the 21 century with its web presence. Our workshop will take a look at the new functionality available on our site and how you can get the most out of it.

Phoenix & Tucson Main Meeting: “Cooperative” Lease Options –  Discover How To Boost Your Real Estate Profits with Wendy Patton

Wendy is the nation’s foremost expert on how to uncover real estate profits where other investors see only problems, shake their heads, and walk away! For instance, Wendy will show you how to take a deal that looks mediocre, and get FOUR different profit streams into your pocket…with little or no money down on your part! How could Wendy have perfected a technique that others don’t even know about? Wendy’s done more than 653 deals…she’s not only an investor, but a real estate broker, and a licensed contractor. Plus, she knows the nation’s markets inside-out!

Here’s some of what Wendy will reveal:

  • She’ll hand you a technique that works like gangbusters even in all markets,  even where appreciation is sometimes flat or declining. She’ll show you how to profit from properties that both Realtors and investors avoid.
  • How to get Realtors to put you on their “speed dial” list as a favorite person to send deals to.
  • When Realtors and other investors throw up their hands at obstacles in a deal, you’ll be clapping your hands at the money you know you can make on that deal.
  • Five reasons why homebuyers will gladly pay more than the retail value of a home…If you know Wendy’s secrets.
