@Jubbar Cross Raising capital and private money is all about relationships. People invest with those they know, like and trust. You need to establish a relationship first and show that you are an expert in the space.
You establish yourself as an expert by educating yourself, experience, track record, creating a thought leader platform to share your knowledge and experience. If you h e no track record you can partner with experienced sponsors and operators.
Finally it’s a contract sport. You need to get out there, network effectively and make contacts. You need to meet the right people and figure out how you can be of service to them then follow up and stay in touch in a meaningful way.

Friends and family as potential investors and who they might know
REI meetups and groups
Non profit organizations
Title companies and closing attorneys
Google search for local, regional and national PM lenders
