So last night I attended my first REIA meeting. It was a speed networking meetup. I got to meet a bunch of buyers and wholesalers and got lots of business cards.
The whole thing was exhausting, I got out of there at like 10:30pm! But I am going to email all the buyers today one by one and thank them for their card and hope to do business with them soon.
It was strange seeing how many wholesalers there are out there too. Lots of competition. Then they did a DEAL thing at the end where people presented what deals they had. I was completely overwhelmed because I didn't understand all the numbers; they were talking about 70% ARV, it's worth this, that, asking price is this, that; I couldn't keep up.
The next REIA meeting is the same thing. A DEAL maker session. Should I go to this? Is it still a chance to network?
Thanks for listening! I built a buyers list just like you guys said, go to the meetings!
