Going to meetings also has a direct payoff. It may not happen at your first one, but in time, attending meetings can lead to real estate deals. By forging relationships with attorneys, real estate agents, mortgage lenders, and fellow investors, you never know when they will have a deal that is a good fit for you and your investment strategy.
Like any other investment, people want to work with people they know, trust, and enjoy being around. If a real estate agent sees you at enough meetings, they eventually may have a deal in your price range in a specific area. This works with most of the contacts you talk to at these meetings. There are deals to be had out there, and if you put yourself around enough people eventually they will come your way. Investment clubs do not guarantee deals, but they greatly increase your chances.
You should be able to pull one or two things from every meeting that makes it worthwhile. These could range from something practical to something hypothetical. If you are like most teachers, your day is filled with students, parents, grading papers, and family obligations that could make skipping a meeting tempting. However, it may be just what your investment strategy needed.
