Upstate CREIA's Main Meeting
Monday, June 20, 2022
GREENVILLE HILTON (this month only)
and simulcast on zoom


 Bottom line….Where did you start and WHY?  Where are you now and WHY?

 Many factors come into play for RE investors that help determine why we do what we do at any particular time.  Different factors may cause us to pivot into a different direction, use a different niche one time or many times over a period of of time as “life happens”.

 Such factors may include:

- having no extra money, so you started wholesaling as an entry point into investing. 

-having a full time job and limited spare time

-having little knowledge of various niches (landlording, rehabbing, flipping, etc)

-having no skills or time to do your own rehabs or maintenance, but not enough money to pay someone else

-having analysis paralysis, terrified to do a deal

-having no experience and afraid to ask for help

-having money but don’t know how to use it in the most effective way

-“been there, done that” mode—-tired of rehabbing, want to do something passive

-age, physical changes that cause you to “rethink” your plan for the future

-having enough investment assets to live on, quit your job, now what?

 Being around a group of successful and supportive RE investors makes all the difference in the world.  Upstate CREIA is that group of friends who can appreciate what you are thinking and going thru as you try to figure out your path.  This goes for new investors (Starters) intermediate investors (Builders) and advanced, experienced investors (Enders).  We ALL pivot and make changes along the way.

 Come Monday June 20 to hear a panel of local UCREIA investors of ALL levels who want to share their stories, their challenges and reasons for changes, what worked, what didn’t, where they started and where they are now and WHY.

Here's the Next Workshop in our Series, Sat June 11:

Saturday, June 11th ONLINE
Lease/Options are a

Powerful Way to
Buy AND Sell Properties:

Our Master Class Shows You How.

        Our members who use lease/options to SELL houses tell us that they get upfront cash (like a wholesale deal), cash flow (like a rental) and a big check at the end (like a retail flip)…

        All with less management hassle and less maintenance than a traditional lease.

        Our members who use lease/options to BUY tell us that they’re an amazing way to control cash flowing deals (including AirBnbs!) without big down payments, and that they get MORE deals by having lease/options in their ‘tool bag’.

        Spend a Saturday (and a tiny bit of money) learning both faces of this powerful strategy, with experienced experts who will share what they’ve learned over decades of profitably lease/optioning properties

        Discover the agenda and the bonuses and get your link to join (or register and wait for the recordings) HERE.

And the NEXT....Sat., June 25

Saturday, June 25th, 9 am-2 pm ONLINE
Calling Everyone Who Wants to Own
Profitable Short Term Rentals
(But Doesn’t Know How)
(Or Doesn’t Have the Money!)

                Our next (detailed, cheap) Saturday training is “How to Start and Scale an AirBnB™ Business” with MeiLani Hock—who started her short term rental business using OTHER PEOPLE’S PROPERTIES and has built that into a full-time income in just a few years.

                If you’re looking for some intense training on how to find, evaluate, control, and run short-term rentals without a bunch of money, you’ll love this, and you won’t even have to leave home to go to it.

                Go HERE to get the details and register—and yes, it will be recorded, and all registrants will get those recordings to add to their permanent real estate libraries!


                                IT'S A PARTY !
 Let’s celebrate YOU, Upstate CREIA’s very special Members and Families, because YOU make “our family”  fabulous!  

We are about 570 members now and still growing, with 20 years of forming friendships, having fun, getting smarter and more successful along the way!

Upcoming Virtual Saturday Classes
e’ve analyzed the 2022 market and what you’ve told us you most need to know to take your real estate business to the next level, and used that data to schedule 23 cheap, detailed Saturday workshops, taught by some of the most successful, experienced real estate investors in the U.S.

They’re all online, so you won’t even have to leave the comfort of your home to learn from them (and we won’t have any ‘delayed due to nasty weather” incidents!)

They’re all ‘live’ on Zoom, so you’ll get to ask your questions and learn from the questions of your fellow members.
