Come to the July MAREMA meeting - 7/15/09

MAREMA Monthly Meeting July 15, 2009

I hope everyone had a good Fourth of July Holiday!

It’s that time to put the MAREMA Monthly Meeting on your calendar. This month’s meeting is a special one. Our Guest Speaker is Richard (Rick) Brown, Principal, B&B Realty Investments, LLC. Rick is an expert in TIC (Tenant in Common) transactions. His topic this month is "Tenant in Common Investments, the Good, the Bad and the Ugly", or "How to prosper and take advantage of this growing part of the industry".

If you aren’t familiar with TIC’s, this is a great opportunity to get up to speed. Learn the benefits of these investments. Remember, your real estate principles class. A Tenant in Common is a type of ownership of real property by two or more persons in which each owns an undivided interest in the whole. Upon the person’s death the property will pass on to their heirs. A TIC may be a good investment alternative for your Clients.

Join us this month and learn the "ins and outs" of investing in Tenant in Common properties. Take advantage of Rick’s expertise in this investing alternative.
