I'm new to BP and loving the site!! I own a construction company and have been fixing up rentals and flips for investors, owners, hedge funds, and property managers in the San Antonio area for the past 7 years. I really want to start investing in properties in San Antonio myself. I would like to do a couple flips to gain some capital then purchase some to keep as rental properties. Rehabbing is not an issue at all, I just need help in finding the deals and securing financing for the deals. Any info that anyone anyonecan share is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to BP! You'll find all the support and information here that you could ever want.  

Funding tip:  My business partner and I are working with Red Door Funding for hard money.  Look for Manny; he's been a great person to work with. 

If you haven't already done so, you could check out the REIA's and Meetups in town. They are a good way to meet other investors, lenders, realtors, etc, and to find your way into deals.

All the best to you!
