REIA Updates

Happy Thursday! 

The REIA Wholesaling Class and the Tacoma REIA Chapter Meeting on Seller Financing are now both open to Member and Non-Member registration! As a reminder we are meeting in larger meeting spaces for less people due to social distancing requirements so registration sooner rather than later is strongly recommended for all events!

Not ready for in-person events yet or want more? Content from in-person meetings will not be replicated online but we will continue offering webinars, articles and videos. Members can find Articles, Books, Videos & Worksheets in the Member Area of the website on the page of the same name.

Webinars for April have not yet been added to the calendar nor have details for our April 24th Commercial & Multi-Family Investing Class as everything scheduling related seems to move a bit slower in our current norm! We're part of the delay too as deals ramp up. :-) Check back in a few days for additions! 

 The REIA office will close at noon on Friday, April 2nd in observance of Good Friday. We will return on Monday and will return calls, texts and emails at that time.  In other words, we'll be completely incommunicado for a few days.

Read on!


Many REIA Events are open exclusively to REIA Members, or open initially to Members-only, many others are open to both Members and Non-Members, all with registration required at www.REIAwa.comPlease visit the calendar page/s linked below for registration and prepayment information. All meetings are in strict compliance with, or exceed, governmental COVID requirements. Both masks and strict social distancing are required, the latter of which limits seating. Early registrations are very strongly recommended!

All levels of experience are welcome at REIA Events! 

Saturday, April 10th
REIA Class
REIA Wholesaling Class
  At Bellevue Residence Inn by Marriott
  See Calendar page for Registration Deadlines

Wholesaling, or Assignment of Contract, is a tool that real estate investors at all levels of education and experience often utilize in their businesses. Wholesalers don't typically pay exorbitant amounts of earnest money, obtain financing to close the deal or swing a hammer. A Wholesaler's job is to find, negotiate and contract deals and sell those contracts to, typically, flippers and landlords.

REIA Wholesaling Class on Saturday, April 10, 2021
Does Wholesaling work during our 2020+ pandemic and overall craziness? You bet! REIA Members are reporting six-figure assignment fees in some cases and a higher volume of deals for others. Have we updated some of our strategies and tools to improve our outcomes? Absolutely. Click here to read more and register now!

FYI! Registration for the REIA Wholesaling Class is now open to both Members and Non-Members. Please note that there is limited, socially distanced, seating. Registration, again, sooner rather than later is strongly recommended. Registrations close for everyone is a few days!

Thursday, April 15th
Tacoma REIA Chapter Meeting
Seller Financing 
  At Tacoma LaQuinta Inn & Suites

Fellow REIA Member George Pressley of Green Path Real Estate and Integrity First Mutual Mortgage joins us to provide education on Seller Financing. Every investor should know about this powerful technique. Seller financing can be applicable to both residential and commercial properties, be it "buy and hold", flips, land development or wholesale transactions.

Seller Financing with George Pressley at Tacoma REIA on Thursday, April 15, 2021
Do you think seller financing is out of the questions in our crazy real estate market?!? How about subject to's? Wrap Around Deed of Trust?  Think again! This presentation will provide an understanding of the essentials of seller financing and how it can be used to meet the objectives of both the buyer and seller along with information on negotiations, presentation and deal structuring. More here>>. Click here to read more and register now! Open to both Members and Non-Members with registration.

Welcome to all of the newest REIA Members!

While you're welcoming the newcomers don't forget the not-so-new REIA Members who've been around a while and those who have yet to attend a meeting because of the lockdowns!

For example, did you know we have a "new" hard money lender in REIA? Or a construction consultant to help guide you through your rehabs and get your materials at a seriously discounted price?

Welcome to REIA!
REIA Members, check out the Business Associates Directory in the Member Area of the website and give them a call to say hello and see if they're a good fit for your current or up and coming team! Don't forget to ask about REIA Member Discounts!

We're looking forward to seeing, in some cases meeting, you next week! Happy Easter!
