Welcome to REIA-NCI!

REIA-NCI (Real Esatate Investors’ Association-North Central Indiana) gears its education and community building efforts toward real estate investors in St. Joseph County, Indiana with concentration toward South Bend and Mishawaka, and surrounding communities.  We have been in existence since 1987 and are now an Indiana Educational (501)(c)6 non-profit Real Estate Investors Association. REIA-NCI organized in order to protect the rights of investment property owners, to network and share information.  We are dedicated to educating our members, teaching and learning how to better invest in real estate to enhance our community.  We are also members of the National REIA.


Since origination, REIA-NCI has grown to include not just landlords, but also rehabbers, wholesalers, commercial real estate investors, contractors, vendors, and service providers who cater to the real estate investing industry.  For this reason we invite you to visit us (at the Sanctuary at St. Paul’s on the fourth Thursday of the month) and see for yourself just how much benefit there is to becoming a member of the Real Estate Investor’s Association of North Central Indiana.

Environmental Hazards

Real estate investors are in it to make a profit as well as to improve their communities. However, there are some not so obvious dangers in the business that could make you lose money if not lose your entire business.

Lead based paint is one of them. This month, we have two professionals that walk us through the hazards of lead based paint and how to avoid them and correct them when they are present.

Whitney Griffin with the St. Joseph County Health Department will discuss the hazards of lead based paint, its effects on humans, especially young children and what can be done to re-mediate it when it is present. Charles McMannis with the South Bend Housing Authority will discuss the subject from the Housing Authority and Section 8’s perspective relative to landlords. He will also have some information on grants that may be available for re-mediating contaminated properties.

Mold and radon are other issues that can be a trap for real estate investors. A representative from Aardvark Pest Control, Inc. will also be present to discuss the dangers of mold and radon and how to re-mediate them.

The meeting  is free and open to the public and will be held on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at The Sanctuary at St. Paul's, 3602 S. Ironwood Dr, South Bend, IN 46614 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. EST.
