A message from Alicia Ortiz,
Legislation Chair with Indiana State REIA Board of Directors
Investors need to be uniting nationwide to be proactive instead of reactive. Kansas City, South Bend and many other cities across the country are starting to unite tenants on the incorrect pretense that landlords are making a lot of money from evictions.
It is also my belief that investors need to monitor each other. There are many unscrupulous investors (colloquially known as "slumlords") out there who are causing cities to take note because the housing stock is in crisis, especially for the low-income tenants. This reflects very negatively on the ethical landlords, who work hard to provide safe, sanitary, and affordable housing.
