Good Morning Everyone,
The next Boston Real Estate Guild Meetup is Wednesday, August 22nd! We have a great agenda lined up for this month's meeting. This month’s focus is on househacking and how investors both new and experienced are using this method to purchase houses in today's competitive market.
Don’t miss this month’s speakers and the networking that takes place before and after the event. Highlight and schedule are below. I look forward to seeing everyone there.
Josu’e Velney from Winter Hill Homes purchased his first house in 2010 because he needed a place to call home. During the process of purchasing his first home, he realized how much he enjoyed the home buying process and creating win-win situations for sellers in distressed situations. Now, he holds numerous buy and holds across the state and is a local leader in the redevelopment of single and multifamily homes in and around the Somerville and Medford areas of Massachusetts. Josu’e will share his unique story and how he was able to get to where he is today.

Chris Reitchel runs a landscaping & plowing business by day and he uses his profit from his business to invest in real estate. He is going to share how he found his most recent purchase while working his day job. Chris was able to get this 2 family with 3 bedrooms in each unit for 20% below the market price and he plans to live in one of the units, so he only had to put 3.5% down.

Rob Landry, Co-Founder of the Boston Guild
@Rob L. I can't wait for this event. Part of my presentation will be on how I was able to purchase my first property in Somerville with only 3k down. The equity from the first house helped purchase a 16 unit complex a few years later. I am currently in the process of closing on a househacking property in Charlestown. The Charlestown property lead came from sending 8500 letter per month. I will be putting down 5 percent of the purchase price on this loan. The goal is to add value to new and seasoned investors.
Looking forward to it Josue! @Josue Velney
Thanks for putting on a great event last night @Rob L. and crew. It was fun meeting everyone and I learned a ton from Chris and Josue's presentations and from the other attendees. Lucky Strike was a great venue as well. See you at the next one!
@Bob Jenney glad you enjoyed it. I agree Josue and Chris did a great job. See you at the next one.
I wanted to thank both speakers for last Wednesday's event. Chris and Josu'e did a great job with their presentations. For those that couldn't make it we booked the private area on the first floor which had way more space so no one had to stand during the presentation. It was a great turnout and tons of networking afterward. I look forward to seeing everyone again next month!
I uploaded a link to Josu'e's presentation and his contact information is below.
