Mike Orr Cromford Report

When the market is changing cycles is when, as an investor, you need to understand even more about what is happening in the market.  That is why it is perfect timing to have Mike Orr, Cromford Report, provide his expert opinion o our market for our members and guests.  As the timing is so critical, Mike will cover his Market Perspective during the Main Meeting to provide ample time to cover the information. Our Workshop addresses a very important topic – Disclosures.  A more normal market means a return to creative real estate transactions in volume. You need to protect yourself and one of the best ways to do that is to provide adequate disclosure. As always, attend an AZREIA meeting and you will learn, be informed and meet new people.

5:15 PHOENIX WORKSHOP: Disclosures for Creative Real Estate Transactions
Are you acquiring property in any of the following ways:  Lease Option, Subject To, Wholesale? Are you dealing with distressed homeowners and paying less than market value for the property? Are you selling property using a Lease Option/Purchase or seller financing? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you need to ensure you are properly disclosing. Should a problem arise, you will be viewed as the expert dealing with an uninformed buyer/seller.  The burden of proof will be on you to demonstrate that you properly communicated with the seller/buyer.  This session is designed to provide you with the disclosure statements you should consider using in your creative transactions.
