Get Involved

If you're not ready to invest today, educate yourself and begin to build your network. Here are some Ohio based organizations where you can get started.

Real estate investing requires more than just financial capital—it demands a thorough understanding of the market, sound financial management skills, and effective property management techniques. Moreover, a strong network of professionals and peers is invaluable. The real estate industry is dynamic, so investors need to continually educate themselves and stay abreast of industry trends. Building a strong network also helps in quickly finding opportunities, forming partnerships, and getting guidance, making the investment process smoother and more fruitful. Real Estate Investment Associations (REIAs) are a fantastic resource in this respect, providing a wealth of educational content, networking events, and mentorship programs.

  1. Ohio Real Estate Investors Association (OREIA): As a state-wide investor association, OREIA aims to promote real estate investment, property management, and landlordship through education and networking. It provides a host of resources, including events, workshops, and webinars, to assist members in reaching their investment goals.
  2. Greater Cleveland REIA: Serving the Cleveland metropolitan area, this association focuses on providing education, networking opportunities, and resources for real estate investors. They offer regular meetings, training sessions, and networking events to help investors successfully navigate the real estate market.
  3. Great Lakes REIA: Great Lakes REIA serves investors in the Great Lakes region, offering a wealth of resources for both novice and experienced investors. They provide educational workshops, seminars, and opportunities to network with other investors.
  4. Akron Canton Real Estate Investors Association (ACREIA): ACREIA is dedicated to providing education and promoting ethical real estate investing. They offer monthly meetings, seminars, and mentorship opportunities, creating a supportive community where real estate investors can learn and grow together.
  5. Greater Dayton Real Estate Investor Association (GDREIA): Serving the Dayton region, GDREIA offers a comprehensive set of resources, including educational content, networking opportunities, and advocacy for investors of all experience levels.

Beyond local associations like these, investors can also tap into the wealth of resources provided by national platforms like BiggerPockets, Zillow, and Trulia.

BiggerPockets is a comprehensive online community that offers a wide array of resources, including educational content like blogs and podcasts, a marketplace for property listings, and networking opportunities.

Zillow is a leading online real estate marketplace, offering valuable data on local and national markets. Its detailed listings, comprehensive database, and advanced search features make it an excellent tool for discovering investment opportunities.

Trulia is another comprehensive platform offering detailed property listings and local information, such as neighborhood insights and crime statistics, crucial for residential real estate investors.

By incorporating these larger platforms into your investment strategy, alongside local REIAs, you can gain a well-rounded understanding of the real estate landscape—from local trends and opportunities to national market dynamics. These resources not only equip you with the information necessary for making informed decisions, but they also connect you with a broad community of industry peers and experts. Leveraging both local REIAs and larger national platforms is a key step towards maximizing your success in real estate investing.
