Hey, I'm an 18 year old Investor living in Chicago. I primarily do Wholesaling, and I am looking for Investors/Rehabbers to get rid of deals to.....nice meeting anyone here(forum seems dead?) But look forward to making connections here nonetheless.  :biggrin

Hey ashj1893,

I'm also a wholesaler in Chicago looking to network with other investors/buyers. I'm impressed that you are starting out investing so young. I wish I would've started at 18. But don't let that work against you. Look at it as you having that many more years in your investing career. Shoot me an email if you or anyone else is interested in doing deals together.

What ways are you fellow Chicagoans networking and meeting buyers?
Title: Re: Illinois
Post by: dukefan2014 on February 15, 2012, 01:36:53 pm
A great way to build your buyers list is to post ads on Craigslist Backpage and Ebay Classifieds looking for cash buyers. This gives me a solid 3-10 new buyers per week. You can also post "fake" ads on these sites for properties you have for sale. When the buyers contact you about them, just say that it is no longer available but that you come across these deals all the time so you will contact them when you come across another.

This method mostly gives you a quantity of buyers. If you are only looking for a few quality buyers, REI clubs/meetings are the best way to meet these buyers/investors.

Hello world, I've been soaking up all there is to know about wholesaling properties for awhile now and think its time to implement what knowledge I've gain to wholesale deals.I would prefer to find a partner/investor/mentor to assist me through the first few deals. I'd like to network with all investors out there anyone who likes to share ideas, strategies, or even deals. My short term goal is to wholesale 2-4 properties per month. That doesn't sound that much but I can assure you that after each month that number WILL be higher, production WILL go up. Eventually when I gain enough capital from wholesaling I will like to get into buying and holding Apartment/Multi-units.I hope to hear from ALL of you guys, happy investing!

Greetings! I'm looking to network with fellow investors in Chicago. If anyone is located on the North Side of the city and interested in meeting up, please send me a direct message.

WCRT, I came across your website. I'm thinking about checking out your sub-group at Four Shadows on the 21st. What is the attendance usually like?

Jay: I would be happy to share my personal resources with you and help you along the way.

WCRT: I used to attend a club in Peoria last year when I was located there but haven't been to any yet here in Chicago. I've just been so busy studying for my CPA, working, and running my business. Do you know of any around the Mount Prospect area?

So I'm THIIIIS close to getting my first deal done...I just need to connect this other wholesaler with a buyer....and then do it again with the other property he's got under contract.....Then it'll be my first two deals! :D Waiting to come across another $5 for the $10 deposit to make it legal, if necessary....IDK if it is...I mean I'm basically gonna have a purchase contract assigned to me, and then I assign the contract to the end buyer......

Post by: dukefan2014 on March 08, 2012, 02:36:19 pm
Awesome ashj1893. Keep moving forward! I'm no lawyer but from what I've heard, at least in Illinois, you need to put down at least $10 to make it a legal contract. And you don't have to actually pay the $10 until you close on the house. So if you end up cancelling the contract, you don't have to pay the $10 anyways.

Thanks, I look forward to possibly getting this property under contract (assigning the original assignment over to the end buyer) tomorrow...LOTS of loose ends I have to tie up on this one, though :p I still need to keep going HARD!

P.S. Anyone have any idea as to how to locate the good wholesale deals in GOOD Neighborhoods? Cause almost all of my buyer's list won't even be bothered with War Zones(where most of the deals are, from my experience thus far)
Title: Re: Illinois
Post by: dukefan2014 on March 15, 2012, 10:28:15 am
One way is to just target "good" neighborhoods only when sending out yellow letters.

Post by: ashj1893 on March 18, 2012, 04:00:07 pm
So it turns out these ARV's, are usually VERY incorrect when mentioned by the sellers....so since I don't have a car to do it myself, I would need to have an Agent do CMA's for me, so how would I go about finding an Agent willing to do this for free? Aren't I wasting their time? Keep in mind I'm only a Wholesaler atm......

Ah the joys of being a wholesaler in a down market... there are other ways! Just thought I would mention that.

As to the WCRT Subgroup, Subgroups are very very small informal hang outs, discussion, etc. So the vary in size. If you want to make a difference, attend the MAIN MEETING in Elmhurst on the first Thursday of the month. We are all about networking and education. Our presenters are strictly forbidden from hard selling their product. No "hurry to the back of the room" stuff at the WCRT!

We welcome all to join in. First meeting is NO CHARGE even.

But if you also want to attend the Sub group, by all means. Sometimes we have 5 sometimes 25. But in the end, it only takes one person, and it only takes you asking questions and being involved!

ASH - keep up the hard work. But maybe use some SMART Work along the path.

Thanks for the encouragement...although I am also applying smart work as well...haha But I personally won't be able to make it out the meeting tonight(someone informed me via PM) as I can't make it out there to Elmhust(at least not that I know of) without a car, so it's not looking good. Good news is it looks as if I'll be coming through with my first deal....have to wait and see how things work out tomorrow...in the meantime...much more hard....and smart work ahead!

Post by: dukefan2014 on September 10, 2012, 04:40:33 pm
I don't know any realtors in that area but I do know a lot of buyers in the general Chicago area!

I would recommend going to the website of the biggest realtor company in that area. Call them up and ask them who was the top selling agent for the last month (they always have the plaques right there on the wall). Then, ask for him or her and just start by telling them what you're looking for. If they don't want to help you out, ask for the 2nd top selling agent and talk with them.

Now, I gotta get to work with finding an end buyer for a 2 flat in the Humboldt Park region since I've been able to snag a solid deal, based on recently sold data in that area. I'll team up with the agent who's been assisting me as well as other agents to find a buyer. Hey, if you'd like to work this deal with me, let me know!

Hey Deborah,

I actually just heard about an REI club meeting tonight (10/17) at 2758 N. Ashland in Chicago. Its a subgroup of the meeting that Ryan mentioned a few posts ago. I just moved about a mile from there about 2 weeks ago so I've never attended this one but I will be there tonight to start my networking in the area.

Hope to see some of you guys there tonight!

Hey Kerstin,

Your post really says a lot about yourself. Focusing on truly helping others out of difficult situations (instead of just focusing on making as much money as possible) will ensure that you go far as an REI. Helping others get what they want will help you get what you want. Just wanted to commend you on your values and beliefs since mine are very similar.

Shoot me an email sometime so we can connect.

If you're looking to network with other investors in the area, I would definitely go to the next WCRT meeting. They have meetings once a month in Elmhurst the first Thursday of every month. I started going about 6 months ago and have met a ton of investors and made some great connections there.

Hi everyone! I have read a lot of the post on this thread and I have seen a lot of friendly responses! So I have decided to try this out myself. I am 21 years old and have learned quite a bit about real estate investing; as I have been interested in it since i was 16! Now I just need some experience and guidance. Is there anyone that would be willing to be a mentor/potential partner to me?? I have had quite a hard life in the recent years, I lost my dad about a year and a half ago, and have been working full time to support my mom brother, and sister. I have more recently gained a drive to pursue real estate investing more than ever. So I do not have much to offer, but it is my passion and goal, and I am willing to do anything it takes to learn and start investing! So if anyone is willing to mentor and guide me, please email me! Thank you!! I am looking to invest in the Dupage/Cook county area!

P.S. In the moment I have nothing to give, but I would even be willing to give up any percentage of profit in my deals in order to START making deals!

Post by: WCRT on November 18, 2013, 10:29:51 pm
Sylvia,

I suggest you get out to some Networking groups and real estate associations. Meet people in person. When bringing on a mentor there are so many things to consider

1. Can you work with them, and they with you (personality, style, etc)
2. What are they doing NOW... is that what you want to do? If they aren't active in what you want to do, they have missed tons of the changing regulations, laws, etc.

3. Do they focus full time on Real Estate?
4. Do they have current investments right now? Not just teach.. but are active investors.

There are more, but you need to meet in person, and not just trust them online, etc. This is to important. This is your future..

So go out here in Chicago area, and find someone doing what you want to do, and they can prove without a doubt they are currently ACTIVE!

Hey all, happy Monday! Getting right to the point, I have a consulting company in Chicago that will be relaunching full force in early January with a strong focus on wholesale activities. As many of us know, there is not a shortage of willing and capable lenders/investors for deals, just a lack of committed individuals to find and deliver quality deals. My company Apex Endeavors, LLC will be dedicated to putting in the work to get those quality deals for the benefit of the motivated seller, the investor and ourselves. We will begin reaching out to distressed home owners during the first week of January and would love to have a few investors at the ready to start fielding opportunities by then. Please feel free to drop a line if you would like to speak further. Our primary desire is to deal with local investors, but money is money and at the end of the day, the goal is always to close the right deal for all parties. Thanks!

Hello everyone,
I'm a newbie in the business.
My question is can you do a double closing, on REO, or foreclosed
property, and can I use transactional funding

Second, doesn't HUD houses have a addendnum saying the properties are sold only as a owner-occupied.
Title: Re: Illinois
Post by: justin0419 on December 28, 2013, 09:06:00 pm
Hud homes have bidding that's only open to owner occupants in the beginning.  If it doesn't sell during that period, it will then go to all bidders which includes investors.  If you bid during the owner occupant period, you will have to sign an addendum at closing saying you'll occupy the house for one year.  You don't have to sign this addendum if you bid during the all bidders period.

I was recently invited to an investor group meeting which ended up being a school that teaches all aspects of real estate investing, but the classes are from $2000-$15,000.  I was wondering if anyone had any positive or negative feedback?

Let me guess, you were invited to "RENATUS"?

That is a new name on the old Nouveau Riche organization. Research that.

Oh great...they've 'reinvented' themselves?

They really died down in here finally...I hope they don't come back here.  He had a devil of a time with them...

Hello, my name is George, a REI newbie based in Springfield IL. Is there any REI club in my area? Also, can anyone recommend a friendly Real Estate agent, a good Closing company, and an RE Attorney? Thanks.

Keith,

Yes Nouveau Riche reformed at Renatus. Operating slightly differently but the same people, the same overpriced education but their real focus isn't real estate but Networking Marketing.

They invite people to their meetings, and sell you on their education. The person that referred you gets a % of the take.

There are some people in Renatus that actually do get to the point of doing Real Estate, but most just re-sell the education.

Hi there,

My name is Jeremy and I own an Airbnb property management firm in Chicagoland.

We help owners/investors put their homes on autopilot for effortless rental income. With our software, we handle all needy guest communication, cleaning, maintenance, management, and surge pricing.

Our client see returns of 22-55% more than normal yearly leases. The challenge we see now is compliance with the new City Ordinance. I've read the Ordinance 7x and have counsel with a lawyer who used to work for Airbnb. We can help :)

Hi all,

My name is Ash Ogunleye, from Chicago, IL. I'm a former Real Estate Wholesaler and Leasing Agent who was actually a member here years ago. While I'm a Digital Marketer by profession now, I'm looking to get back into REI via crowdfunding & notes, and would like to network and share my marketing expertise (specifically Lead Generation) with the community. So be on the lookout for value filled posts in the near future :)

Cheers,
