Which is first ?

3 Replies

I just finished doing some research on investing with private lenders, but I'm a bit confused still. 

Do I need to find the deal first or the lender first and keep them on hand? 

I'm wanting to just start out and not get so caught up analyzing and reading so much that I don't take action. 

Would love to hear some advice. 

Thanks! 

You'll want to research lenders first, in my opinion. Introduce yourself to a couple good ones - ask for references at your local investor meetings.

Talk to them about what you are planning to do, get information about their requirements and rates. Then go find some deals you want to present to them for funding.

Good luck!
