With EOK's new format of Weekly Podcasts, I'm looking for some volunteers to help with a panel discussion of Real-Estate investing.  I can host with others attending when they can.  We will discuss finding opportunities, financing, partners, exchanges, contracts, agreements, taxes, insurance, tenants, repairs, etc.  Everything to do with Real-Estate investing.

We will use talkshoe/skype to allow viewers/listeners to ask questions live.  We'll publish this as a weekly video and audio podcast.  We could record several at one setting, have a fixed schedule each week, or a mix of both.

Who's in?  Email me at or stop by the Taking IT Home office to talk about it.  After we get a handful of people interested, we can setup a meeting to set our recording schedule and list of topics.

First week of June works best for me. Let's get something on the calendar. We can use my office in Sequoyah Hills or we may want to make the 10:00 session of EOK a real estate session. We'll be at the new Water's Edge Facility then. Does June 2nd at 10:00 a.m. work for everyone?

Starting a weekly meeting at my space in Sequoyah Hills (1204 Kenesaw, Suite AB, 37919 - Upstairs Office). We'll be meeting at 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. Since it's me and Ken Armstrong kicking this one off, it will be focused on Commercial Properties.

Feel free to attend. Our First meeting is this Tuesday 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. and we will be reviewing a warehouse I have in Greeneville and brainstorming on best uses for the property.

How about some periodic meetings for Real-Estate investing? Maybe sub-groups for Single-family, Multi-family, Commercial, Industrial, Development, Flipping, etc. What do you think? I'm up for setting up a regular meeting to discuss Real-Estate.

I just spoke to Kevin Hill about an investment opportunity in South Knoxville. An investor is wanting to sell 20 adjacent rental properties as a package. Sounds like single family homes. I didn't get too many details.

Kevin is ball parking $1,000,000 to buy the 20 properties. They are cash flowing currently. He wants to know if any of us are interested in forming an LLC to acquire these 20 properties. We will evaluate them for a good offer price at today's rental income.

Kevin is planning on appreciation of the properties as he moves forward with his partners in a revitalization plan for South Knoxville.

Kevin was referred to me by a very trusted friend.

If you want to discuss more, give me a call 865-384-6481 or talk to me Wednesday after the EOK meeting.

Thought you might find this map interesting.

RealtyTrac reported this week that in 2008, the U.S. had a total of 3,157,806 foreclosure filings — default notices, auction sale notices and bank repossessions — on 2,330,483 U.S. properties. This was an 81% increase over 2007, and a 225% percent increase from 2006.

The report also shows that 1.84 percent of all U.S. housing units (one in 54) received at least one foreclosure filing during the year, up from 1.03 percent in 2007.

Commercial space opportunity similar to my building in Sequoyah Hills. Small shopping center in the middle of Tellico Village. May be able to buy it for $1.5mm for a 10+% cap rate. If you're interested, let me know tomorrow at our meeting and I'll get you some more information.
