Upstate CREIA's Main Meeting
Monday, August 15, 2022

DUE DILIGENCE is one of the MOST important steps in your RE business.
If you don’t do the research or ask the right questions, you may find yourself in trouble. Learn from local investors.  What are those “right questions”?  How do you know what to ask, where to look, who to ask or do you just jump in because you so badly want to do a deal no matter what????    Knowing “what” you are about to purchase is key to making good decisions or walking away from a bad decision.

Local UCREIA members will share their knowledge on various due diligence areas.   Mona Lisa Harrison, Realtor, Stager, investor, Leader of DOA Focus group will share info on the property itself, how to research it, HOA, covenants and restrictions, comps, and much more.  George Smith, investor, flipper/landlord, lender, leader of Advanced Focus Group,  will share experience on due diligence with borrowers and the collateral they present.  How to make good decisions on lending.   And Kathy Malcolm, investor, landlord, note buyer, Instructor of “Crunch the Numbers” financial calculator class, will share her experience on evaluating existing notes, creating new notes, what to look for in a good note, etc.

Audience participation welcome.
