Just by visiting this website, you have taken a giant step that will forever transform your thinking, your investing and your life.
Founded by Rob Chevez as a way to network with like-minded people, The CAZA Investor Network (CIN) has evolved into a powerful mastermind that empowers others to build a real estate business worth owning and create a life worth living. CIN is a community of individuals that share the common goal of financial freedom through investment in real estate.
We created this network to discover and share ideas, strategies, and resources for building a successful real estate business and we are glad you have joined the pursuit!
At CIN, we believe that the networking, education and inspiration you need to become a real estate investing pro is best found at the local level – which means that you need local knowledge, local contacts and local resources to help you grow.
Each CAZA Investor Network Affiliate location is run by active investors who are doing deals in their area and they have joined CAZA to help us build the world’s largest grassroots network of real estate investors.
We share our knowledge, passion, network and best practices to help one another grow our businesses.
When we first started our investment groups, people asked us all the time, "Why are you training your competition?"
Truth is, we have never seen it that way. Business is about relationships, we don't view our fellow investors as competition but rather co-competition. We've bought and sold deals to other investors, joint-ventured on projects, borrowed and lent money on rehabs and found mentors, partners and friends among the great people we've met in this business.
To provide real world content, resources and networking to help investors build their real estate businesses.
To create a national organization of locally – focused, education based, networking opportunities for real estate investors.
Real Estate Investing: The CAZA Way
Let’s first define how CIN views the business and what our model for real estate investing looks like.
First and foremost, if you haven’t picked up on it already, we recognize real estate investing as a business and we treat it like a business.
That means we follow systems and models that help us manage risk and increase profit. We don’t hope, we don’t guess and we don’t gamble. With the knowledge gained from hundreds of transactions, we seek, find and buy properties that cash flow from day one. On rehab deals, that involves finding properties where we can add value and sell them in the retail market, or generate short-term income by selling the deal to another investor.
For rental projects, we seek deals that allow us to use safe leverage to own the property with little equity and rent with positive cash flow, all while our tenants pay down the debt of those assets, increasing our net worth over time.
It’s a beautiful thing, but it’s not easy and it’s not a get rich quick scheme. No matter what the late-night gurus tell you, there is no “magic system” for easy profits in real estate.
But you can find proven systems and methods; and you can learn how to identify, analyze and manage good deals and you can train yourself to do it all better, faster and more efficiently so you can profit more while working less.
If you do it right, you will wake up one day wealthier than you ever imagined and more importantly you will have made the world a better place and had a good time doing it. That’s what we’re doing, and we’re here to help you do the same.
