January 10, 2013 Main Meeting:
Jason Windholz - Buying Houses "Subect To" using knowledge instead of your own money!
I spoke on this topic at the Wichita REI group last year and they invited me back in March of this year so I wanted to go over it with Tulsa and share the new content I have for buying houses Subject To. It is a simple process that is very misunderstood. I will also touch on owner financing, lease options, and other creative ways to buy and sell houses without using traditional bank financing. Also I will go over how to make sure the deal is a good one or not, and more. This is a great technique that is perfect for our current real estate market right here in Oklahoma, the midwest, and really almost everywhere in America.
December 13, 2012 - Holiday Party & Expert Round Tables
We will have some snacks and coffee and tea provided for our Annual Holiday Party. Our open networking is extended and we have any announcements and updates to share along with a year end review. We will have round tables set up with an expert so that you can meet and network with an expert and each other. Bring plenty of business cards. Then every 15 minutes the tables change so that you will meet different people. This breaks up the regular clicks and forces each other to meet someone new and the round table networking is always one of the favorites of our members.

Tom Henderson - How To Get Rich Using Notes and Seller Financing: 20 Ways to Use Notes to Buy and Sell Property
"It's Not Necessary to Change. Survival Is Not Mandatory" W. Edwards Demming
This famous quote applies to us today more than ever. The investment climate has changed dramatically from a few years ago. No longer can we find a property, fix it up and easily sell it in a couple of months to make a huge profit. Weren't those days fantastic!! But sadly because of lack of funding, those days are gone. You can either change with the times and prosper, or keep trying all the old ways and become more and more frustrated when your plans do produce profitable results.
Seller financing can provide very lucrative techniques to both buy and sell real estate if you know the principles of evaluating your investments. No matter what the economic condition, seller financing is a profitable, time tested method of investing in real estate. Ask yourself these questions: Do you have vacant properties waiting on a "qualified" buyer? Do you have a hard money loan you need to pay off? Do you have a note, but do not want to take a huge discount? Do you need to recapture money you already have invested in a property? Do you have other property with equity you would like leverage, but banks will not refinance? Do you know the number one factor that decides the price of real estate? Would you like to know the tell tale sign that real estate is in some sort of recovery ?(Nope, it is not now) If you answered yes to any of these questions you do not want to miss Tom's presentation. Discover how to change not only to survive, but change to prosper. If KNOWLEDGE IS POWER, you will walk away being head and shoulders above your competition.

Theresa Jones and Jason Windholz - OK REI Strategies and Numbers, PLUS Problems and how to solve them
Theresa and Jason will go over Wholesaling/Rehabbing and how to run the numbers to make a great deal and avoid paying too much and hoping to break even. They will also go over Lease Options and Subject To deals when talking to the sellers (role playing) along with owner financing options. To wrap it all up they will go over common problems and what they did to fix them. Problems arise in all deals and they are solutions to handle them, so get stuck waiting on the perfect deal, be prepared for issues and have the confidence to handle them as they arise.

Jason Windholz - Oklahoma Contracts
Jason will go over the Oklahoma contracts and how to fill them out. Buyers can make offers with no worries because OK contracts come with a built in "weasel" clause so that you can get out of the contract for any reason AND get your earnest money back. It can also be limited for sellers to make the contract hold up. I think investors were a part of the committee that made these forms for Oklahoma. He will also go over the seller financing and subject to addeneums for OK contracts.

Tax Resale Workshop
Are you interested in buying properties at the Oklahoma Property Tax Resale? Tulsa REIA holds an annual workshop that has all the information you need to invest in properties from the defaulted property tax sales in Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma Property Tax Resale Auction is held every year in Oklahoma on the second Monday in June. All counties in Oklahoma hold the resale on the same day in their county.
You Can Buy Houses & Land For UNDER ½ PRICE At The
June 2011 OKLAHOMA PROPERTY TAX AUCTIONS
Bidding Starts At 5-10% of Value
Tulsa REIA is Hosting a Workshop That Teaches You How
YOU can easily get bargains at Oklahoma County Tax Resales this coming June at the county delinquent property tax auctions. This seminar will be taught by Ronald Starr, who has been investing in Oklahoma properties at tax resale auctions since 1999. He has bought over 20 houses in Oklahoma in the last 11 years at tax sales. Most of them at 10% to 50% of market value which equals super bargain prices. He has bought at least one property every year, either for himself or other investors he works with to buy properties at the tax resale auctions.
You could win in 2012! The deals available can make good POSITIVE CASH FLOW rentals or you can resell them for a good profit. You get properties FREE & CLEAR of almost all loans or liens at tax resales. You can learn how how do this at the all-day Saturday workshop sponsored by Tulsa REIA.
Saturday June 2, 2012 from 9am -4pm
Is 2012 a Special Year? Yes, because of a recent change in Oklahoma laws on delinquent property taxes we can expect there to be many more good properties going to sale this year compared to previous years. So plan to get some great deals.
PROOF (As told by Ron Starr):
Example #1: In May June of 2009, I bought three houses; one for myself, approximately $3,700 for a rundown house in a below average part of Lawton, OK, and two for other investors. The first investor got a good-looking 1,000-square-foot single family house built about 1925 in an average neighborhood in Bartlesville, OK for $14,000. A local agent suggested it is worth about $45,000. So, about ½ price. The other house, in a below-average area near Tulsa, about 1100 square foot, was built in 1980 It should be worth about $50,000 to $65,000 in good condition.. How do you like this purchase price? $3,600! You can invest this year—2011.
Example #2: The buyer of that second house also bid upon a nice-looking brick house I estimated to be worth about $80,000. But—against my advice—he limited his maximum bid to $15,500—it sold to somebody else for $16,000—about 20% of market value, I believe. Think of that: 20% of market value. About $60,000 FREE EQUITY for $16,000. I expect more such sales this year.
Example #3: One house I did not buy in 2008 because I did not have an investor—YOU could have gotten this one. It is a two bedroom, one bath house, of 1038 square feet plus garage, built about 1940. It's in a lakeside town—a county seat. Comparable values about $34,800. I saw the inside and estimated repairs at under $5,000. SOLD FOR: $1,300. Wow!
Example #4: A few years ago I sat next to an investor who bought perhaps 25 recreational vacant properties at one OK county tax resale. Each was purchased for less than $100. By the end of the year, all the properties had been resold for prices from about $500 to $2200 each. Investment: perhaps $2000. Return: probably about $20.000. Do you think you could do that this year and in the future?
What You Need at the Auction: For Houses about $6,000 minimum CASH or immediate credit. For Vacant Lots about $500 minimum.
What You CAN'T Be: A flake. A person without money. A scared rabbit hopping out of sight at the first sign of a fast-approaching bargain.
What You DON'T Have To Be: A real estate expert. Ronald Starr will teach you what you need to know at the workshop. He will answer your questions and teach you what he knows from over 10 years of investing in Oklahoma Property Tax Resales. He will teach you about the properties to avoid, the best ways to be efficient, and the traps from which to steer clear of. He will have researched many of the properties listed for sale and you can see his research at the seminar.
