Finding Money To Invest In Real Estate – Tips For A Changed Credit Market

In case you have not noticed, the real estate investing market has changed. Over the past few years we have seen an amazing opportunity for investors to access almost an endless supply of cheap, easy to qualify for money. That’s changed recently.With a record number of banks and lenders feeling the crunch of an increase in foreclosures, one of the first things that changed is the money for real estate investments.Still many investors are trying to find money to purchase some of the amazing deals that are available now in this market and I am asked by my mentoring clients and people using our Analyzed Deals website to find deals how to find money to use in their investing.Well, here are some tips.First, there may still be loan programs for you that will allow you to get loans. What you need is a great (not just a good) resource for someone that can do loans in YOUR local market. Who typically has these types of contacts? A great local, investor friendly real estate agent or broker often has the lender contacts that know how to get loans done for investors.If you request information about a deal on Analyzed Deals, we do put you in touch with the best real estate agent or broker that we know for investors in the area of the property. They almost always have some great resources for investors to get loans that is not made known to the general public. So, I would try there first.Next, if you can not get financing through those channels there are some other creative techniques you can still use.For example, when markets change from a seller’s market to a buyer’s market, buyers are in the drivers seat and can request concessions like owner financing for the down payment.Another often overlooked method of investing is to partner with someone who can get loans. There are a lot of people that have great income, credit and desire but just don’t have the knowledge or time to actually get started investing. Advertise to find these folks and partner with them to get deals done with a combination of their and your resources to make it a true win-win deal.In times like these, there are lots of ways to succeed as a real estate investor, but it sometimes takes some creative thinking and a deviation from the traditional methods.
