Benefits of Joining Your Local REIA

REIA is an abbreviation for Real Estate Investing Association / Group.  REIA groups or clubs as some are called is an invaluable tool to meet people from all walks of life who have an interest in Real Estate Investing and to learn all about the REI business.  Members of REIA groups are like-minded groups of men and women “where deals and funding meet”.  Companies have been formed and deals have been made as a direct result of the relationships developed and information shared at REIA group events.  I like to refer to them as your real estate investor “watering hole”.  Members attend the “Watering Hole” to learn, find deals and funding.

When you boil it down… evaluating a real estate deal is a pretty simple process.  If you're looking to buy real estate as an investment, wholesale properties, hold them for rent… whatever, one of the most critical parts is "buying it right" (i.e., not overpaying).
