John Adams “Atlanta’s most trusted voice in Real Estate’’ shares his insight.

I drove up to Norcross this week for the monthly GA REIA meeting attended by several hundred members and guests. The entry fee was $25 just to listen. I was able and privileged to spend some time with John Adams (well known Real Estate Guru all over the US, Trainer, Radio Show Host, Atlanta Journal Columnist, TV personality, Landlord, and Investor) listening to his views and where he thinks the market is going.

John has a wealth of knowledge and real life experiences building wealth through real estate investing. He has more experience actually doing and running a successful Real Estate business than almost anyone alive today. He and his wife Marjorie, work side by side. She is one smart lady and a CPA. When John speaks on the radio, newspaper, TV, or to a class, people listen. His insight into the market has proven to be correct more times than not.

Here is what I took from his insight. The current economy will not last as change and cycles are inevitable. John has been through four recessions or corrections. John said today is a great time to buy and hold property if you know how. There are many great deals out there right now. John believes in helping people. He also believes everyone needs a written plan for their business. This is something we teach at A O Home Solutions in our training program. People need to take action and not just talk about it if they intend to be investors. Buying homes at the right price is a step in the right direction but only one part of this business. Education and understanding the market cycles is important for success. If you want to be involved now is a great time to get started.

Building your inventory with good deals is a strategy that John not only believes in but, the one he has used for decades. John is a lifelong learner and has had some great trainers. He believes in education and he gives away much of it in his weekly radio show aired from 12 to 2 pm every Saturday on Radio station 920 am. John Adams is said to be “Atlanta’s most trusted voice in Real Estate”

No Room for Sharks in the business

There are a lot of sharks in this business of Real Estate right now. Do not get bit or deal with a shark investor or landlord. Do not get anywhere near those who do not document their deals and use the proper legal forms. If it feels or smells fishy it probably is not the deal you need. I was down at St Simons Island vacationing and catching a few of the lower level sharks recently and a friend snapped the picture of one of the Black tail sharks I caught and then released.  There is a lot of talk about Buying foreclosures today. Foreclosures are ok if you understand what you are buying. You are buying a home that someone has lost because they could not pay for it. Chances are they could not pay for months and that means it usually was not kept up either. Chances are when they left they were mad and may have taken it out on the house before they left. Foreclosure homes are always filled with surprises. Yes, you can get a good deal at times but, there may be things missing like the copper pipes or the air conditioner and a clogged septic system or other deficiencies. Foreclosures are houses the bank does not want and can not usually sell the normal route. The banks just want to be rid of it and often do not check everything. You can't check the air with the power off. You can not check for water leaks with the water off and you are buying the foreclosed house as is where is with no warranty and often a limited warranty deed. Some people leave foreclosures in good shape but, remember to do your own checking before you buy and the saying "buyer beware" is appropriate in this case more than ever.  If you want a home that is in good shape has been checked out and has everything working go to or . There are no sharks there and no bad deals.
