Why Every Real Estate Investor Must Learn Notes
Joe Varnadore has created, brokered, bought and sold more than 10,000 real estate notes on both residential and commercial properties. As an author, speaker, and trainer for the past 25 years, he believes that there has never been a greater opportunity for real estate investors to use non-performing notes to acquire properties and seller financing to cash out.

What you will learn at the monthly meeting presentation:
- Why the Note Business is the Hottest Topic in Real Estate
- How to Find Real Estate Bargains via Notes
- How to Find the "Hidden Inventory" of Real Estate that no one else knows
- How to Buy Non-Performing Real Estate for Pennies on the Dollar
- How to turn $100 in your Roth IRA into $100,000 or more and Retire Tax Free
- How to earn Velocity Income without using any of your own money
- Why flipping notes is easier and less time consuming than flipping properties
- How to become a note buyer with as little as $100
- How to apply your current real estate knowledge and skills to make even greater profits with the note business
