Showing numbers and nearby comps is a must for most private lenders. I think what people underestimate is being organized. Don't just throw a stack of papers at him, give him some nice, quick takeaways that he can reference later.
Before doing any investment deal (private investment or otherwise) I always have to talk it over with my wife. If I was the only one at the meeting, how am I going to explain it to her?
That's the person you should be optimizing for. Make it neat, keep it succinct, make sure the sources are referenced and verified.
@Trevor Ewen , I am not typical anything. Heck, I even vary the way I do my own deals, but I do appreciate the vote of confidence and am glad you found my ramblings helpful.
