MAREI Blog: For the Real Estate Investors Our June Virtual Events on Creative Deal Making

By Kim Tucker posted 05-27-2020 07:47 AM

Right now real estate in the region is a Hot Commodity and properly priced homes are selling quickly if they fit in the cookie cutter box.  But what if they don't fit in the box and as the market shifts in the next 12 months are you prepared to get creative?  

Here at Mid-America Association of Real Estate Investors, based in Kansas City, we are super excited to have Creative Deal Making as our subject for June.  And because of the pandemic, we have gone virtual until, large groups in small rooms are allowed again.  So you can join us from anywhere in Missouri or the US!

☑️ Eliminate the Competition.
☑️ Grow Your Deal Tool Box Past All Cash - 70% of ARV Less Repairs Offers?
☑️ Get More Out of Your Marketing Dollar & Get to More Kitchen Tables
☑️ Be Ready as the Market Shifts . . .

Want to be a successful real estate investor? Then don’t go out looking for deals. Instead, find people to help and problems to solve! Our job as real estate investors is to solve problems and Bill Cook is coming to MAREI on June 9th with an introduction to getting creative to solve people's problems.

This meeting is VIRTUAL and it's FREE for MAREI Members & 1st Time Guests. Get registered at

Here are four lessons Bill will discuss:

➡️ What is the best landlording secret in the world?
➡️ How to sell a $500,000 property for $300,000, and still make $500,000.
➡️ How to use straight options. Maybe THE best deal structuring tool in a chaotic market.
➡️ How to do a Subject-to Deal, and why sellers say yes to them.

As we look at the deals above, you’ll learn how each was found, structured, funded, and once bought, what was done to turn it into a mailbox money machine.

Speaking of finding deals, you’ll see the fastest, cheapest and most effective way to get face-to-face with sellers. Which marketing technique will get you to sellers’ kitchen tables 80% of the time?

Finally, here are a number of questions Bill promises to answer during the meeting:

➡️ Why is getting face-to-face with sellers so important to success?
➡️ When meeting with sellers, why should it be about them and not you?
➡️ What’s the most important question to ask a seller?
➡️ Why are T-bar and Teeter-totter Offers so much more effective than Purchase and Sale Contracts?
➡️ What’s the best way to learn how to creatively construct and fund deals?
➡️ When a seller calls, what two questions should you ask?
➡️ What’s the best website to determine a property’s value?
➡️ What’s the most you should pay for a property and still make the deal work? (The answer to this question is guaranteed to rock your world!!!)
➡️ When an investor is failing, what two questions does Bill ask to determine the root of their problem?

We promise that Bill’s event will not waste a minute of your valuable time! Just the opposite is true. You’ll come away with a better understanding of why creative deal structuring is its own language.

BUT WAIT . ; there's more . . if you want a full day of hands-on training on creative deal structuring be sure to join us for a unique 1-day workshop featuring Bill Cook that walks you through real-life examples, including the negotiation tactics, paperwork, and even the legal and tax implications of every deal. Saturday June 13th.
