Cost Savings

REIN Membership is an investment

A REIN membership is an investment much like real estate itself or any other investment you might make. Thus, what is really important about a REIN membership from a financial point of view is not so much the cost, but the return that it delivers. As our Members will tell you, REIN membership can pay for itself over and over, and delivers a return far in excess of its cost.

In the investment world, one of the terms used most frequently is "Return on Investment", or ROI. It speaks to the capacity of your investment to grow and earn a return greater than the amount originally invested.

The key to maximizing the ROI of your membership is activity. Our active Members (i.e. those who get out there and purchase properties) recoup their membership costs in a variety of ways as they learn, purchase, manage, and sell. On the other hand, inactive investors will soon find that the cost of membership becomes harder and harder to justify. That's because they are not positioning themselves to reap the financial benefits of membership.

What kind of investor are you, or will you be? Active, or inactive? If you decide to be an active investor, then these are the specific ways in which your investment into REIN delivers a spectacular ROI;
