March will be our last meeting of the year. We have had only 15 renewals and the board decided to suspend operation for the rest of the year. The Oakland REIA has started a group for advanced investors and I am encouraging all DOLLARS members who want to meet with experienced investors to give the Oakland Group a try. They are just starting up their advanced sub group so in all fairness we should give them a couple months and see if it is a forum that our members enjoy. Since DOLLARS is suspending they will be meeting on the 3rd Thursday of the month. Check out their web site at REIA of Oakland.com.
I want to remind everyone of the Institute of Real Estate Management Annual Trade Show on March 18th. It is held at the Burton Manor on Schoolcraft in Livonia. It is a good place to find vendors that cater to the rental property business. The show is free.
Our meeting this month will be an open format. This is the time to get your questions answered by the other attendees. I want to hear from all as to what worked and didn’t work for you last year, what you learned from last years experiences, what problems you are having now, and what course of action you are taking now.
