The Utah Valley Real Estate Investors Association is a professional networking association for new and experienced real estate investors in and around Utah County.
Our primary purpose is to help investors find the resources they need—whether finding deals under market value, obtaining financing, getting referrals of good local contractors and vendors to use, or learning more about the many aspects of real estate investing. We provide the resources you need to succeed.
Why have a Real Estate Investors Association (REIA)? The same reasons that almost all industries have trade associations—because we are stronger together than we would be trying to do it all alone.
