Many real estate investors have asked themselves if buying a property in Western North Carolina is a good investment? If so, how do we navigate in this already unique Western North Carolina changing real estate market? Especially when the strategies we’ve all used successfully in the last 2 years are showing some serious cracks.

Pondering Questions:

  • Is it worth buying a house in Western North Carolina?
  • How does buying rentals work when interest rates have nearly doubled, but rents have not?
  • How do we move forward with fixing and flipping when a property might quickly be worth less than it is today?
  • How do we fund our projects and stay current on existing loans?
  • Who are the best sellers, and the best buyers, in a softened market?
  • How do we overcome our own anxieties, build our knowledge and skills charging forward into this new changing environment?

CREIANC is dedicated and remains committed to providing education, networking and ethical investing opportunities to its members and community. One of CREIA’s most important educational offerings is Real Estate 101, a long-standing informative program existing since the group’s inception. This critical offering is focused on teaching real estate principles and finance fundamentals at a value price.

Real Estate 101 is analogous to an assorted box of chocolates. Attendees may sample each chocolate in the box and no two boxes are alike. Every year the program is different depending on which speakers are available and the topics they want to discuss. This year we are blessed with 15 industry experts, all active in the real estate investor space. Each is donating his or her time to teach about various topics of which they are passionate. Because of their generosity, Real Estate 101 can annually offer fresh, assorted educational programming germane to the current market, economic and real estate conditions, thus making it relevant to newbies, seasoned investors, and past attendees alike.

The BEST WAY TO PREPARE is to learn from active investors and entrepreneurs with DECADES of knowledge and experience in this LOCAL community. And that’s exactly who we are bringing to You. These individuals will share the good, the bad, and the ugly yet help guide us through this changing landscape.

With that in mind we are excited to announce the Real Estate 101 2022 Esteemed Speakers and Programming. Thank you, speakers!
