How does it all fit together? Why are we on the web AND on a collection of social media sites? Each part synergistically fits together to help us communicate to other real estate investors using Facebook, Meetup, and the website?
It all started with a Facebook group for real estate investors in Connecticut. The idea was a resource for Connecticut real estate investors to communicate on a daily basis. Yes, there are organizations that meet once a month, and they have their place. Yes, many of us have coaches we meet with either in person, or by phone on a weekly or month basis. Yes, there seem to be more of those monthly meeting groups every week, but questions about real estate investment comes up every day.
Next, our own Meetup group, CT RE Investors. It has grown to close to 600 members. We started with 2 conference call Meetups a month, and and an interview format with local investors and companies that support investors. By the way, we are always looking for people to speak! What is your unique selling proposition? Between Facebook, Meetup, this website, and other social sites, speakers will likely get thousands of impressions.
Now this website, CT Real Estate Investors. A place to put recordings (and soon video) of previous conference call Meetups, and maybe a place to help your website SEO, and to grow your social media sites. The site offers an opportunity to promote your business and yourself.

If you own rental property, sooner or later you are going to need to evict someone. Eviction law varies greatly
If you are an investor or a real estate agent, you probably run across houses that are worth less than the value of their mortgage. Sean “The Short Sale King” Wilder explains the solution: A “short sale”.
Jonathan Makovsky and Travis Preziosi host a real estate investor Meetup the third Wednesday each month (except November and December) at Crave, 52 Sanford St, Fairfield, Connecticut 06824. What I like about it is that it is informal, and we spend most of our time mingling and networking. You might meet attorneys, contractors, lenders, etc. …
No matter how carefully you select your tenants, some day you are going to need to evict one. What’s the process? Can I do it myself? How long does it take?
What’s the best? What floor covering you use depends on the location, and the price point of the house. Traditionally, hard wood is what people like today, but vinyl plank, and even better, vinyl tile (in the kitchen) look like the best option in a house if you want to save some money, Let’s look…
An interview with Joe Zaniboni of Grand Coast Capital Preamble Why hard money? As real estate investors, when we find a deal, we need to move fast.
