We packed Wahoo Seafood Grill last night! As usual, the food and the service was outstanding! Mark, Nate, and I finally got a chance to grab some wings, Boom Boom Shrimp, and MudBug Fries at the meeting after the meeting - so good!! We closed down the place too!
Our guest speakers were Karlus Henry and Nate Trombetti.
Nate Trombetti with Secured Investment Lending
Nate talked about the Tallahassee market and how it is an excellent market to invest in. Nate will make loans on single family homes, commercial buildings, and new construction. Nate and SIL HAVE MONEY TO LEND - Mark and I had the pleasure of shooting skeet with him at Talon Range before the meeting. During that time, he had to make phone calls to release funds to various investors. It generally takes 10 days to get funded on a project. As Nate told everyone, if the project is not a deal....he will not fund it. His goal is for you to be successful so that you borrow money over and over again. His goal is NOT to end up with property or in property management. You can reach Nate at 855-485-9032 and you can learn more at his website....www.SecuredInvestmentLending.com.
Karlus Henry with KFR Maintenance Solutions and Kingdom First Realty and Tallahassee Association of Residential Property Managers (TARPM).
Karlus discussed the rental market in the 4 areas of Tallahassee. He showed us rent rates in 2016 and what rents are in 2017. We discussed how getting to know area property managers is very important. He also invited members to attend the next TARPM meeting - February 23rd at 11:30 at the Tallahassee Board of Realtors. The cost is $15.00 for non TARPM members. Mark and I have found this organization to be very informative and attend the meetings regularly.
We are always very happy to have Austin Holloway with NuView IRA at our meetings. He drives from Longwood, Florida to attend. It is NOT too late to put money into your self-direct IRA. Austin told about a new client who put $1000 in his self-directed IRA. He used $500 of it to secure a property and then wholesaled it for $50,000 - That's TAX FREE MONEY!! Visit Austin to get started on your retirement plan.
