We are a group of investors focused on sharing experiences and helping each other navigate the ins and outs of real estate investment in Milwaukee Wisconsin and beyond. We also connect to other clubs in the Midwest to share ideas, information and opportunities. This time we are meeting at the Hoyt Park Beer Garden in Wauwatosa on August 17, 2017, 6:00PM.
Welcome to the Milwaukee Real Estate Investors Club.
I'd like to contribute more and bring some items to help others.
- CapEx budgeting timeline
- Using online platforms to self manage/automate
Things I'd like to learn from others.
- How to do more deals when you are out of capital. LOCS?
I can't make the meeting as I'm headed out of town for my son's wedding. Maybe next month.
@Dawn Anastasi here is the REI Club I had invited you to. I won't be able to make it this week as I am checking out Grand Rapids, MI for some investment opportunities. But, please join us this meeting or in the future! I bought your e-book by the way and I will make a suggestion for the members of the group to do so also. I believe it to be a great guide about buying in Milwaukee!
I couldn't find the facebook group to post this, but thought I'd provide a couple of online systems for those who self manage. Hope this is helpful to others. I know it has been for me so far.
Google Forms Free
Screen before showings to save yourself time from those who don't read listing qualifications/don't qualify.
- Create a form to pre-approve tenants prior to showings
- Post a link on your listing. Tenants fill out the form. If they pass, set up a showing using the service below.
Acuity I think about $5/m
Save time from calling applicants/rescheduling etc.
- Online scheduler used for showings.
- Send applicants a link to view calendar and pick day/time.
- The site updates live.
- Receive (you/applicant) confirmations, reminders, cancellations.
I'm not sure if this would work for C-class properties, but for A-class so far its working.
@William S. thanks for the tips, Acuity was something I hadn't come across yet, looks awesome.
Reminder that the meeting is tonight @ 6pm. Hope to see many of you there!
Hey all, when will the next meeting be? I keep missing them....thanks!
@Jordan L. The next meeting will be 8-31-17, hope to see you there.
Great! Hoyt Park again? Thank you!
