Welcome to the next opportunity to build wealth through real estate investment and income!

Written, designed, and led by a local real estate investment expert, this course is ideal for both novice and intermediate investors, as well as real estate brokers, who are looking to start or grow their investment portfolios. The curriculum examines various real estate investment opportunities to build future wealth and passive income — including specific examples, analysis and insights on how to best navigate the real estate investment market in ever-changing economic environments, including recessionary environments. The course also goes in depth on long term and short term (airbnb) rentals, as well as examines cash flows in a high interest rate market.

Ready to start building your wealth with real estate investing? 



The seminar-style discussion includes an in-depth study of real-world examples from the North Carolina real estate market. This one-day course offers a deep dive into actual rental home scenarios in the local market and how to use them as a way to build a portfolio, from setting initial financial goals and financing the property, through the more complex issues of budgets, cash flows, depreciation, investment analysis, and even taxes and future profit realization. The seminar will examine short term rentals (airbnb) and long term rentals alike as to help investment portfolio diversification. You will also be exposed to the additional critical topics of insurance nuances, evictions, and creating LLCs and similar structures specifically for real estate, in addition to how to navigate today’s interest rate environment.

Unlike other, similarly advertised seminars, this course does not require any additional “upsell” or materials to purchase — it is an all-inclusive course packed with information and advice designed to get you started on your way to building real estate wealth and income, mainly focused on North Carolina properties. The best part — it’s only one day of your time!
