Network with other real estate investors, learn and form partnerships, find out how real estate investors are making money in today's depressed market
Mark Maupin, real estate investor and college professor, and Mark Lang, lead the Real Estate Roundtable group the first Thursday of each month at the Eastern Campus of Wayne Community College. They get together to network, learn and discuss a different topic each month. This organization is open to any and all who are interested in the world of real estate. Current members range from newbies to commercial investors. There's something of value for all who attend this event.
The Entrepreneurial Department mission is to provide an atmosphere for real estate investors to learn, teach and network. The Real Estate Investors Association Club, sponsored by the college, has been formed for real estate entrepreneurs, home buyers and students. Their goal is to bring link minded individuals together, to give advice from local real estate experts and offer other resources from the greater Detroit area.
Many topics are covered in this club, including foreclosures, short sales, lease options, purchase options, wholesaling real estate, commercial and residential real estate, landlording and buying discounted property. They will be discussing a new topic in March which is working with seniors, 62 or over. This is a government program for seniors who have equity in their home, or need a home. It's possible to put them in a property on a short-term land contract, then refinance the contract and pay it off with a reverse mortgage. This is a great program for seniors who have little income; it can even be done if they have bad credit. Very interesting.
The next meeting will be Thursday, March 6, 2008, from 6pm to 9pm, at 4901 Conner; Detroit, MI 48213, in the Cooper Room. Call Mark Lang at 313-579-6990, or Mark Maupin at 248-939-6232 for more information.
