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. 

Learn more about the benefits of joining your local REIA group through the Infographic below:

Networking - In addition to the educational opportunities mentioned above is the networking.  Networking is one of the biggest reasons for attending your local REIA group meetings.  This is a team sport.  Regardless if you are brand new in the business or a seasoned investor having a solid Power-team, and a large buyers list is critical to getting deals done quickly and properly.  Attending REAI group meetings is the place to do that – your “Watering Hole”.  Be sure to bring tons of business cards to share with other investors.

Resources & REI Tools - Most REIA groups have a wealth of resources available to it’s Members.  If you are looking for specific websites to conduct your due diligence, pull comps, services etc., reach out to a local REIA group such as the West DFW REI Group Resources Page.

More Deals – Another BIG benefit to joining your local REIA Group is access to more deals.  You can never have too much access to deals.  Some REAI groups such as the West DFW REI Group offer a Property Listings page to help it’s members sell their deals faster by increasing visibility.  All Members of the group receive a free professional investor website to help promote and sell their deals fast!

Sponsors/Vendors You Can Trust – If you are looking for various contractors and service providers that you can trust, joining your local REIA group is a smart move.  Typically, REIA groups only allow the best in the business in their groups as Sponsors.  They want Sponsors that will take care of it’s Members.  I use my grandmother's rule.  If I sent my grandmother to one of our sponsors would I be comfortable and be able to sleep at night doing so?  If the answer is no, they are not allowed to join the group as a sponsor.  To see a list of the West DFW REI Group Sponsors visit here.  These are individuals and companies that have been around a long time and are highly respected in the business.

Other Benefits – Each REIA group has its own set of benefits to its Members.  It’s almost like having their own personality.  Each group is different and unique.  Some REIA groups include discounts when you become a Member as well as discounts for future classes, online access to educational material, online access to critical REI investing/ legal forms, various REI tools to help you be successful, coaching and mentoring, and some Memberships include free real estate investor website to help sell their deals faster.  Some groups have no or minimal benefits to its members.  Each group is different.  For a full list of benefits with the West DFW REI Group go HERE.  Membership does have its benefits…

The collaborative spirit of REIA groups continues through breakfast meetings focused on topics that are timely, relevant, and provide potential opportunities for many of its members.  REIAs also hold several networking events in various locations to initiate, develop and enhance relationships amongst its members and guests.  The goal is to build long-lasting business relationships in a social setting, not just to add you to a contact manager, email list or social media network.

If you value a real estate organization that focuses on the real estate investing business and places a high value on relationship building, with an end goal of enhancing and growing our businesses together, consider attending one of our monthly events (or one of our Virtual events during COVID19) and consider becoming a member where membership does have its benefits.
