    Update on successes with Bargersville utility Ordinance. Thanks for all who attended. You packed the house and democracy is working!

    Calling all Real Estate Investors. We need your support tomorrow night to oppose Bargersville Ordinance making Landlord’s fully liable for Tenant Utility Bills. Seems impossible but 10 other cities are doing the same. Watch to learn more. Thank you.

    This is House Bill 1347 in the Indiana General Assembly as sponsored by Representative Woody Burton, and initiated by Indiana State REIA. The bill makes sure that Tenants have to pay their own utility bills and that utility charges are NOT a lien on investor owned properties. This is the legislative response to local utilities like in Bargersville who are trying to force landlords to pay for tenant utilities. There are 14 towns doing the same thing around the State. Join your local REIA because they are the ones leading this fight for you (with yours truly as the lobbyist). Keep an eye on this bill and be ready to come to the Statehouse and make your voice heard. Thank you.

    Small Tips for beginners

    Real estate investing can be an excellent way to bring in income, diversify your portfolio, and generate wealth long-term. However, this industry is not for the faint of heart. Before you rush into the world of real estate, you need to understand what you’re getting into in order to increase your chances for success.

    Do Your Research Before Investing In Real Estate

    Data shows that just last year, more than 9,300 people attempted to flip a house for the very first time. House flipping means buying a property, rebuilding and redesigning it, then selling it at a profit. Of those 9,300 attempts, a whopping 87% lost serious money on their very first flip.

    Unfortunately, too many people underestimate the challenges of real estate investing.

    While you need a lot of confidence, drive, and commitment to succeed in this fast-paced industry, it’s equally important to research before you even try to strike your first deal. Learning as much as you can will protect you from bad calls and wasting your hard-earned money on unprofitable projects.

    Real Estate Investing for Beginners

    There are three main things you need before you start investing in real estate: Property, Cash, and Discounts. This is especially true if you’re planning to flip a house for the first time.


    Get creative when trying to find your very first property. Established sites like MLS or are a great resource, but may not be viable for someone who’s just starting in the business.

    Instead, try to search for wholesalers and ask what they have available. Wholesalers publicly advertise properties that others may not be interested in. While they do take a cut, your profit margins are still considerable.

    Apart from wholesalers, you can also look for potential assets on sites like or even homes for sale on Craigslist and If you’re part of a real estate investors association, it gets even easier – you’ll get insider information from investors, agents, landlords, and other professionals who can give you leads not available to the public.


    Here’s a rule of thumb: no matter how much cash you might have right now, you need even more. The truly profitable deals are often beyond the financial reach of a first-time investor.

    To increase your fund, you can get a loan from private lenders to leverage your money. You can also use your 401K, retirement investment accounts, or your IRA.

    Don’t just look at your personal funds either. Check through your local network and see if there are people willing to offer their cash for a joint venture deal with you.


    Discounts are essential for keeping costs down when flipping houses, especially if you plan to resale. Find discounts for flooring, paint, cabinets, lumber – basically for everything you might need for your project.

    This is another instance where membership in a real estate investment group comes in handy. These associations often have partnerships with major and local stores for serious discounts which you may not get working solo.
