I have been able to raise millions of dollars just by asking friends, family, attorneys, CPA's, real estate agents
etc.. Just start asking and before you know it all of your deals will be funded. Of course it helps if you have a successful track record so starting out will be difficult.
You should checkout Matt Faircloth's recent Biggerpockets podcast on raising private money. He also has a new book out, I haven't read it but it sounds great.
Many people are looking to invest in real estate these days, not like in 2009/2010 for example where people were scared since prices were dropping. It's harder finding the deals these days versus the funding.
