i know with a better credit i could get a better rate on loans but is it a must when starting with real estate
In general yes.
The various ways of financing a deal is a common conversation. Short answer is NO, it is not an absolute must BUT be prepared for things like rejections from mortgage lenders or extremely high interest rates, especially it is a private source. My recommendation is to work on increasing your credit score then shop for mortgages but if you are looking for more unconventional finance methods you may find this forum here on BP helpful...
Hope this helps!
