Hey, does anyone in the Phx, Az area (or close to the Phx, Az area) know of any meet ups for real investors. I want to get to know people that are investing here in the Phx area, get familiar with them maybe take them out for coffee to pick there brains. I only know of a few out here through meetup.com
@Erick Martinez - Go the monthly AZREIA meeting, they are also numerous subgroups that meet on a monthly basis. There is also a buying group that meets every Thursday I think.
@Justin S. Where can I find out about the sub groups and buying groups? Right now I am working on getting Mondays off so I can go to the AZRIEA meetings.
Thank you @Justin S.
@Justin S. Thanks for the link! I'm checking out the site now. Anyone find themselves here from asking the same question, start here: http://www.azreia.org/membership/start-here/start-here-for-new-investors/
Erick, This REIA is very different than 90% of the other REIA's. It's a FOR PROFIT REIA & thus, one is inundated with Course's to purchase. The majority of REIA forbid this as some Real Estate GURU's make the the majority of money from selling "Programs / Courses " than they did as a RE Investor.
Remember to pay for your education through - Books, Networking , Seminars, & Classes
Other resources include -
Community Colleges & University - ASU has a Real Estate Degree program & one may audit the class. I took Intro to RE Investing ( at a community college in Oregon) too.
Real Estate Schools -Az School of Real Estate & Business- They offer many classes for the RE Investor. Also, I took the Pre Real Estate Sales Persons Licensing and 2- 3 Classes dealt with investing. I was very impressed by the amount of information provided. They offer classes for a reasonable cost .
EBAY - One can pick up a lot of Real estate GURU courses, books,CD & DVD's
Best Wishes for Your Success, Mitch Stanley
