Real Estate Investors – “7 Step Formula” To Secure Private Money

First – Determine how much money you need to acquire a certain property and be sure to include the purchase price, closing cost and complete renovation costs. If you do not know the renovation cost be sure to make your best estimate so you do not leave these out.

Second – Start to market for private lenders. Make a point to tell everyone you know and meet “that you investing in discounted real estate investments and are looking for investors.” Show your potential private lenders how to start investing passively in investment real estate. You can also use other marketing strategies such as sending out post cards to wealthy people or putting up flyers in 55+ communities.

Third – You will need to create a presentation kit to educate your potential private lenders to the power and security of investing in discounted real estate. Essentially, position them as “the Bank.” Deliver your presentation to your contacts within your sphere of influence and your warm market, such as business associates, friends, family, realtors, accountants and attorneys to name a few. Some of these people may know other contacts within their own networks interested in investing.

Fourth – You will find that many potential private lenders have CD’s or money market funds that are only yielding 3% to 5%. Your presentation has to show that you can offer your investors anywhere from 9% to 15% return on their money versus the small returns they are currently getting at the bank. If they stocks or bonds they may be even more willing to invest in something as safe as good solid local investment real estate versus losing 50% or more in their stock portfolios. You need to offer them more income with a secure investment.

Fifth – Once you have a potential lender or two that has expressed some interest you need to present your proposed deal. You will need to show them what it will cost to purchase and rehab the property and what it will be worth once compete. You may want to borrow all of the money to purchase the property. Or you may go to a bank and borrow 80% and then use your private lender to fund the remaining funds.

Sixth – Make sure your private lender sends the funds (i.e., certified check or wire transfer) to your closing attorney or title clerk. Never have the funds made out to you or your company. Create a promissory note for your private lender explaining the terms of the transaction and make sure they are in either first or second lien position on the property.

Seventh – Complete the purchase of the property and rehab and be sure to invite your private lender out a couple times to see the progress so they remain comfortable the investment and build a long term relationship.
