Investing in Real Estate can be simple...when you pay attention!

By Chris Clothier on Thu, Aug 26, 2010

It never ceases to amaze me that business men and women alike can sometimes forget the very basic rules of investing when it comes to investing in real estate.  Real estate investing is no different than investing in traditional stocks, bonds, funds or CD's when it comes to looking for value and return.  Often times, the real value of an investment can be determined quickly and easily

Investing in real estate requires continuing education.

By Chris Clothier on Mon, Aug 9, 2010

So you all know that we are constantly working to improve our operations and educating ourselves when it comes to investing in real estate and we urge you all to do so as well.  Last week we spent 4 days at the Fortune Builders Rehab Bootcamp in sunny San Diego, CA learning new processes and touring the  properties that Fortune Builders are currently rehabbing.  Ryan, who heads the rehab department at Memphis Invest, joined us in continuing his education. This is by far one of the best educational opportunities of the year and we are happy that Ryan could join us.

Kent, Jr., Brett and I had the opportunity to speak to the 300+ attendees in regards to systems implementation, business building and stayed over to give a special presentation to a select group of attendees on the inner workings of the Memphis investment property bus tours that we host.  See below for pictures from last week's workshops.

Be sure to check out the Fortune Builders' home page for future events and make plans to join us for one of the upcoming educational boot camps.  Even the experts still attend workshop weekends to continue to grow and learn as business owners.

See you on the road soon...

Chris
