Bargain basement prices. Highly motivated sellers. Record low interest rates. A growing numbers of renters. No new inventory coming out of the ground.
Wow. Talk about a perfect storm of opportunity for real estate investors.
If you’re a newbie, getting in on the action can be a little intimidating. There’s a lot to learn and mistakes can be expensive! And for seasoned veterans, getting into more deal flow and finding good investment partners can be a full time job.
In either case, getting involved in a good real estate club can be a great solution. So we decided to dedicate this episode of The Real Estate Guys™ radio show to sharing some important things we’ve learned after more than a decade of running and visiting a lot of different clubs.

Real estate clubs are a great place to increase your education, expand your network, get into the deal flow or find investment partners. But like any investor, not all clubs are the same. So knowing what you want and what to look for are essential in finding a club that’s a good match for you.
Your handsome hosts have been running various clubs for over a decade. We’ve had educational mentoring clubs, market and property promoting “deal clubs”, and even a club of investors who all went into deals together. We’ve also visited a lot of different clubs as guest speakers, so while we may not have seen it all, we’ve seen a lot.
So we have some ideas about what to look for in a club and how to decide if it’s a good match for you. And if you just can’t find what you’re looking for, we also share our thoughts on some things to think about if you decide to step out and start a club of your own.
As a special bonus for listening all the way to the end (or in this case, reading this entire blog), we put together a free report on 12 Things To Ask When Joining or Starting a Real Estate Club. If you’re super impatient, you can visit our Special Reports page an get it right now! But if you’re serious about getting out on the green to do some clubbing (did we just badly mix metaphors?), be sure to listen to the podcast too!
