    Need help financing a start up real estate business

    Newbie
      Hi,

      I am looking for financing of my new start up real estate business. My credit score is somewhere between fair and good depending on which agency you poll... I checked all three and got three different numbers that were no were close to one another. The business has only been in operation for about month and funds are needed to purchase properties. Is there any way to receive a line of credit/loan without me having to use my personal credit/assets?

      Thanks

              I would like to be able to purchase my first home by September and am looking for $75,000 in start up funding. I have my EIN number and am currently working with a busness plan writer to have my plan finished by the end of the month. I have seen you mention Score.com and have researched and found my local office and will follow up with whatever assistance they can offer. thanks.

              Unfortunately, all lenders will pull your personal credit history. They will do so for the same reason you do not want them too. Real estate investing is kind of a strange market when it comes to lending. Most lenders will not lend to real estate investors - especially in this market. Other may lend but will require you to have 50% to 60% down payment (equity). There just is a lot of risk.

              You could try to seek investors. Get out and network in your community. Attend any and all networking events and just start talking to people - tell them your story and what you are trying to do. You never know who you will run into. Plus, if the people you talk with do not invest - they may know other who will. Just make sure you really state how you (you personally) can pull this off and make money.
