ROC RE Coffee Club
The RE Coffee Club is a weekly informal meeting for real estate investors and real estate professionals to meet, discuss ideas, and communicate their haves, wants and needs. This weekly coffee meeting will give investors the opportunity to expand their network and deepen their network. All who share an interest in real estate investing are welcome.
7:30 – 8:00 Introductions and Haves Wants Needs (This will give each attendee the chance to introduce themselves and what they do as well as communicate a:
- “Have” – i.e. “I have a three bedroom apartment that I need to lease right now and I have been having a hard time renting it.” Or “I have a two family house in Beechwood for sale, do you have any buyers.”
- “Want” – i.e. “I want to buy a 50 to 100 unit storage unit facility in the next 12 months in Monroe County.” Or “I want a 2-4 family house in the Park Avenue area with off street parking priced between $180k to $280k.”
- “Need” – i.e. “I need an inexpensive asbestos removal contractor to remove two octopus furnaces in a two family I just bought.” Or “I need a broker to lease up office space in one of my buildings.”
8:00 – 8:30 Question and Answer. i.e. “I am thinking of buying a mobile home park, what criteria should I be using for evaluating this type of property?” “I am working with a property owner who wants to sell their property but are hesitant to do so because of their capital gains exposure, what are some ideas that you guys have to overcome this objection.”
8:30 Meeting End. Just because the meeting has ended doesn’t mean you have to leave. Perhaps there is an attendee who you would like to meet with one on one or maybe you can help someone connect the dots on a Have, Want or Need that they shared with the group. This is the perfect time for that.
