Is Private Funding Right For You? Find out with our private funding expert panel with Kim Cook, Dorsie Kumi, & Mike Ventry Monday, April 22nd @ 6:00PM Cherokee Cattle Company 2710 Canton Rd, Marietta, GA No Charge for Atlanta REIA Members, Guests $15 at the Door. In Real Estate Investing, you will often hear the term,"private money or private funding". Some of the things you will hear about private funding will sound very attractive. Here are some items you need to know about private funding, and is it right for you? Private money lenders typically offer loans that are secured by a real estate asset. These loans are used to purchase a house, condo or multifamily building. Private money lenders can be anyone from a personal friend to an established private lending company and are therefore called “relationship-based” lenders. Private lenders often issue loans to short-term investors looking to make money flipping houses. Private lenders also issue both rehab loans as well as traditional hard money loans to buy-and-hold investors looking to purchase and/or renovate a rental property. Private money lenders are right for the following types of people: Fix-and-flippers looking to purchase, renovate, and sell a property within 1 year Short-term and long-term investors who need financing quickly Buy-and-hold investors looking to purchase and renovate a property before refinancing with a conventional mortgage Long-term investors who can’t qualify for a conventional mortgage, 203(k) loan, or HomeStyle Renovation mortgage, but plan on refinancing once they meet qualifications Long-term investors who need to season the property Where do you find private funds? How do you work with private lenders? How can you build relationships with funders for successful deal flow? This April 22nd at Atlanta REIA West, we have a panel of private funding experts who will share their experience and knowledge with you. Real Estate Investors Kim Cook and Dorsie Boddiford Kuni will share how they finance many of their own deals using private financing. Kim and Dorsie will share the strategies and caveats you need to know for successful investing. In addition, we have as our special guest Mike Ventry from Accuplan Benefits Services.
