 Tax Sales  — Are you planning to attend the Marion County Tax Sale on October 8th & 9th? Do you want to understand how the process works or just need a refresher? Don’t miss this meeting, as Brenda Flatter, Executive Director of National Sales for Meridian Title Corporation, joins us to talk about tax sales and ways you can utilize this strategy in your real estate investment business. Attorney Drew Strobel, from Griffith Law Group LLC, will also be providing an update on a new law in Indiana that effectively repealed the redemption period for vacant and abandoned homes.

Information on the 2015 Marion County Tax Sale can be found here.

 Self-Directed IRAs  — Are you finding great real estate deals but few financing opportunities? Has the stock market turned your 401(k) into a 201(k), making you unsure about retirement? Are you concerned about impending tax hikes decimating your income? Then don’t miss Edwin Kelly, CEO of Specialized IRA Services, as he talks about how you can jumpstart your self-directed IRA in 33 days even if you’ve never done a real estate deal! Whether you’re looking to create a legacy for your family that lasts multiple generations, or put your kids through college without having to work until you’re 90, join us to learn about this powerful financing tool.

Make sure you also block time for the informal “meeting after the meeting,” as many of the INreia Board Members and meeting attendees make the short walk over to Mass Ave. to enjoy dinner and drinks together after each month’s meeting.  *NOTE – Multiple deals and business relationships have been made during this informal meeting time over the last several years!

If you have any questions or ideas for the INreia Board Members prior to the meeting, please find us on Facebook, MeetUp, and LinkedIn. Or, send us a message via the Contact Us page on the INreia website at www.myinreia.com.

Big Changes to the Marion County Small Claims Courts in 2015


  1. Small Claims Courts becoming “courts of record” in 2018.

Beginning July 1, 2018, the Marion County Small Claims Courts will become courts of record. A court of record is a trial court in which a court reporter or clerk takes down a record of proceedings. In the past, the Marion County Small Claims Courts have not been courts of record. Thus, when a party appealed a judgment or requested a jury trial in Small Claims Court, the case was transferred to a circuit or superior court (which are courts of record) and tried de novo (starting new). Once the new change goes into effect, appeals will now be taken to the Indiana Court of Appeals in the same manner as a judgment from a circuit or superior court. Appellate procedure is complex and will cause challenges for many pro se litigants.
