Unless, they are investing in “REIT’s” I wouldn’t bother with them. I am sure it would be good information, if you want to buy stocks.
I would get yourself a good book on Real Estate or maybe a course. You, can learn more info. from one of these sources, than you could at a meeting about investing in stocks. Investment meetings are good to make contacts and network with like-minded people. I have met some very good mortgage brokers at these meetings. I have met some great rehab investors who I can assign my contracts too.
If you want to buy and sell stocks than YES, these meetings will be helpful. If you are investing in RE, I would search for another club who has presentations, speakers, and meetings to discuss RE monthly. I am not sure where you are located, but you might have to drive a little further to find what you are looking for! Use this website and locate a club near you.
