If you are looking for a real estate school about basic real estate investing, we can be a good place to start. You will not be sales pitched, we never charge, do not share contact information, and our classes range from beginner to expert.
For ten years we have met every Friday at 7:30PM at our 'newbie' meeting. Its currently in our offices at 33 S. 5th Avenue in downtown Tucson. Consider yourself invited. Parking is free all weekend at 35 E. Alameda in the Wells Fargo three story garage (not the flat lot), there is even a guard there usually. Keep in mind, friday nights are not easy to park downtown so be ready to walk a few (four) blocks. Walk south to Congress and then east to Fifth avenue. Sometimes parking can be found a bit closer at Armory Park.
The friday night meetup varies in content but typically it involves what we look for in a deal and/or in financing for a deal. If you have no experience in investing whatsoever we recommend 'cash flow' a boardgame that can be played online that can assist you with how a financial statement works. We began as a group playing this game when we got started. It can be very powerful.
Mostly the subject matter is tailored to the experience level of the attendees, but if you are new remember it is 'newbie' night, so don't be afraid to ask as many questions as you like. Please let me know where you are at in terms of experience level so I can make the meeting enjoyable for everyone.
We need you to be on time, security at our offices is very tight and we need to bring people in as a group. We have had as many as 85 people in attendance and as few as three over the years, but these days we tend to range in the twenty to thirty area.
Our active core is approximately 250 members. We only work in Tucson, AZ. We do not appreciate being solicited for business by network marketers or real estate agents.
We are always in the market for investors interested in making investments in mortgages, so make sure to tell us if you want to be emailed our deals as they materialize.
If you are currently an investor in the tucson area and have a website, we would be happy to exchange links with you. Let us know if you need a website or would like traffic to one you own. The more we cross link with one another, the higher our rankings on local search engines. So anything we can do to boost traffic will grow our local investor community. We also have a meetup group, and periodically put meeting announcements on craigslist.
