How to invest in a high priced market – Part 1 – Cash flow is not everything
Presenters: Joe Massey, Chris Lopez

Have you heard that Denver prices are at their all time peak?  Are you sitting on the sidelines waiting for prices to come down?  In this session, we’ll review the four ways to make money in real estate and break down how cash flow is not everything when it comes to real estate investing.  We’ll compare today’s properties to investment properties from the past and show you how there are still great opportunities in the Denver real estate market.  Understanding the opportunities and options are key to investing in real estate and this class will give you the knowledge and confidence to go out and buy in today’s strong seller’s market.

Do I Really Need a Retirement Plan?
Presenter: Chris Tanner

Many years ago, a very successful real estate investor asked me, “Do I Really Need a Retirement Plan?” He was already very successful, and he let me know that the cash flow from his real estate investments would be his retirement plan. So why bother putting money into a retirement account? I shared some information that forever shifted his way of thinking. Join Chris Tanner with New Direction Trust Company as he sheds light on some powerful investment strategies utilizing retirement accounts. Hint: Peter Thiel the co-founder of Pay Pal used this strategy to build a 5-billion-dollar retirement account.

10 questions all newbies (and most experienced investors) should know before they get started
Presenter: Justin Cooper

Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a clear, well-defined roadmap that folks could follow when getting started in real estate? Unfortunately once we get started learning we are confronted with a seemingly endless list of questions and concerns, all of which can add to our uncertainty and hold us back from taking action.  Countless investors fail because they jumped into the business without good preparation and knowledge. Join Justin as he answers the most common and some uncommon questions all investors need to know when getting started.

Landlord/Tenant Law: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
Presenters: April Greene Apking and Chuong M. Le

Structuring Creative and Complex Real Estate Transactions

Heard about subject to?  Now learn the process of purchasing a property “subject to” existing financing, as well as pitfalls and special requirements.

Wrap Closings
We also call wraps “all inclusive deeds of trust.”  Learn why these transactions are more protective for the seller and how to structure them.
