Want to be a real estate investor?

Confused by all the new terminology? Overwhelmed by all the wealth building seminars? Don’t know where to start? Continue reading to discover a foolproof way to kick-start your new investing career.

If you watch late night television, you know that real estate investing is a piece of cake. Nothing to it! No money down and all the houses you can buy, right? However, once you start exploring, you discover there is a little more to it. As a matter of fact, there is a LOT more to it. The more you explore, the more confusing it becomes.


Georgia REIA understands that. That’s why we designed a Real Estate Investor Boot Camp specifically for novice investors.

It is a no-nonsense, three-day intensive program aimed at getting you off to a strong start, on a critical path you can trust.

Experienced teachers will take you step by step through the entire process, outlining many ways you can make money, as well as ways you can seriously lose money, if you’re not careful.

You’ll learn how to buy SMART by properly evaluating properties, estimating rehab work and finding the right contractors to do the work.

When should you hold properties, lease/option them or sell them out right?  You will gain the confidence to trust your judgment and avoid the serious pitfalls that can await you.

Courses in the 3-Day Boot Camp

  • Marketing your Business: How to find motivated sellers (and buyers)
  • Finding the Deal: The many ways to locate bargain properties
  • After Repair Value: Learn the ARV formula
  • Avenues of Funding: Show me the money, other people’s money, creative financing

GaREIA created this program with the new investor in mind. Our goal is to give you an honest appraisal of what it takes to be successful. If you want it, you can have it, by following the simple guidelines laid down in this program. Success can be yours.

This Boot Camp is not a platform to sell you bigger, more expensive courses: No hard sell, No books, No tapes, No pressure. We’ll tell you about GaREIA’s other learning programs, many of which include some of the most respected national speakers, but you will not be asked to buy anything at this Boot Camp.

Come and enjoy the most beneficial three days you will ever spend!


Experienced Teachers with Local Focus

You’ll learn from local, experienced teachers—all of whom are successful investors in the Atlanta area.

Come learn what works in Georgia: how Georgia law is applied, how Georgia foreclosures work, and how properties are valued right here in Georgia.

There’s no need to get on an airplane and fly to California to learn how foreclosures work there and then translate them to local law and regulations.

You will hear about the costs of renovation right here at home. We’ll talk about property values, foreclosure rates, appreciation rates right here in Georgia. You will be able to go out on the Monday following Boot Camp weekend and put this knowledge to work.

See what some recent attendees had to say:

“GaREIA’s Boot Camp is more beneficial then I could have imagined! It was well worth the money for the education and the contacts with both members and investors.”

“I was exposed to different ways of making money in real estate. I also learned an awful lot from our bus tour. Hearing those varying opinions and learning how to evaluate properties on site were invaluable.”

“An impressive amount of information and a great opportunity to get questions answered!”

“This was an unforgettable experience. I will spread the word. Great job, GaREIA!”
