May 2019 Meeting

Mo’ Money. . .Mo’ Deals! Find out how to tap unlimited funds for your deals!

Date: May 16, 2019

Everyone says “You find a deal and the money will appear”, but really is that true?


If you have a true deal there is money everywhere.  The bigger question is what is the right money to go after for a given deal.

  • What is the best money to go after if I’m a rehabber? 
  • What if I’m a landlord that fixes the house first then places a tenant? 
  • What if I just do “buy and hold” rentals? 
  • What if I’m a wholesaler that just needs money for a couple of weeks?

You can do it all with just your own cash but will that reach your real estate goals?  Probably not!

So, how do you decide what source of money to use for a given deal? 

There are several different sources of money for deals.  Suzanne Hunn with FasterFunds Lending and her expert panel of Tim Nash of American Bank (local banker) and John Heinkel with USA Mortgage (mortgage broker) will be explaining how you can leverage various types of funds to reach your goals faster.

There are many variables or factors that go into which type of financing is best for a given deal:

  • Are you going to live in it or is it strictly investment?
  • How long you plan to own it?
  • How fast you need to money to fund the deal?
  • How many current personal real estate loans do you have?
  • What area is the property in?
  • Do you buy using an LLC, other type of Corporation status, or your personal name?
  • Are you currently a W-2 wage earner or self-employed?
  • What type of property is it?  (single family residence, multi-family, apartment complex, etc…)
  • How often do you buy or how many deals do you want to purchase in a year?

Once you figure out your overall approach to real estate investing then it is much easier to know what type of financing or combination of financing will be optimal for you.

Suzanne and her expert panel will be covering different strategies that you can use a real estate investor which can really accelerate your net worth and monthly cash flow!

One such method that uses leverage is the BRRRR Method.  This is where you purchase a house, fix it up, place a tenant, then refinance the short-term construction loan for long term mortgage loan AND pull out the funds you personally have tied up in the property.

Then you do it again! 

Buy, Rehab, Rent out, Refinance, Repeat (BRRRR Method)

What if you are a rehabber?  Now you need money for the purchase and the fix.  How can you do that without using all your own money? Or how can you strategically use your own money and not have to go through construction disbursing.

Well, I have to leave a little cliff hanger.  Come on out May 16th and Suzanne will tell you exactly how to fund that type of deal and more!

Best contractor I’ve ever used. Angle Ridge Remodeling designed, planned, and installed an entirely new roof on my new construction home. His crew had the plywood on in just a day, and knocked out the shingles before dinner time on the following day. They cleaned up the job site and it came out absolutely perfect.Shawn and his crew are the ONLY contractors I would recommend for the work they do. Friendly, affordable, on time, and rock solid. 
Great job!!!”

Alternative Asset Investing: Leveraging Self-Directed IRAs

Date: March 21, 2019

We are excited about having Kent Kinzer with Equity Trust presenting on how to leverage self-directed IRAs!

Self-Directed IRA/401(k) investing, although widely misunderstood and underutilized, allows investors to architect a diversification strategy with assets often not found in traditional asset allocation models. Assets including, but not limited to, real estate, mortgage notes and trust deeds, small businesses, joint ventures, private equity, and precious metals. Kent Kinzer with Equity Trust will be covering:

-7 types of tax-advantaged accounts available at Equity Trust

-What type of self-directed IRA investments are allowable by the IRS Real-life case studies of self-directed IRA success

-Answers to other common questions about how the investment process works and what documents are required

Equity Trust Company offers a comprehensive self-directed IRA/401(k) educational program, providing useful tools, resources, and insight into the methods used by Equity Trust’s 130,000+ clients. The tactics discussed will demonstrate methods to potentially eliminate capital gains tax and ordinary income taxes within your real estate and or alternative investment assets through tax-advantaged retirement accounts. Attendees have the opportunity to leave this training with the knowledge and guidance to formulate and implement alternative investing into their financial plan. We look forward to seeing you there!

Justin and his team made a game changer in our business. They follow instructions closely and they’re know what they’re doing. Their reps are trained more than what I could train my lead managers, and I had 4.They’re always willing to help and to improve and it’s impressive. Thank you guys keep your hard work!
~ Guy Nizri

I have been using Call Porter for not even a month, and have already gotten a deal under contract. At this point my biggest dilemma is to buy it or whole sale it. This is a deal that I would have missed because I rarely can get to the phone in time to answer. Ryan and his team answers on time, every time, and they are way better than I could ever hope to be. They feed all information into my CRM and I call the sellers back and take it from there. Thanks again guys, Life Changer!
~ Nick Vehr

If you want a professional answering service to handle your hot leads for real estate then Call Porter is the right company. After spending a great amount of money and time on direct mail, the last thing I wanted was for these hot leads to get thrown into voice mail. The best part of Call Porter is they are real estate trained and know just what to ask the customer. Highly recommended.

Mike Kitko is an extremely passionate business coach helping executives, business owners, and leaders reinvent themselves and become financially and personally powerful with a coaching program unlike any other.


“As the owner of a small business, I love to have someone to brainstorm with. It makes it even better if this person is a trusted resource that knows your business well but doesn’t have a stake in the outcome.

I hired Mike Kitko because I was looking for someone to help me take my company to the next level. It has worked out so well. He has really come to understand our company, our team, and our culture.

He is someone I trust to go to when I need to talk through a tough decision. He has brought several blind spots to the surface that I didn’t know were holding our team back.

I really love our weekly talks and they either make me think about something in a different way or lead to a breakthrough I didn’t see coming.

He has become an awesome resource for me and our leadership team.”

– Bryan Schroeder
Owner and CEO of Fasterhouse (Real Estate Investment Company)

“I highly recommend Mike to any and everyone. He’s not just a coach, mentor or accountability partner. Most importantly he’s a friend. First time I sat with Mike he read me like a book, felt like he knew my ins and outs.

He’s amazing at what he does. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be on the path I’m on or I wouldn’t be the person I am. He’s the reason I pick up the crown I’ve been so afraid to touch.”
