The Good, The Bad and the Ugly: Raising Capital for Real EstateJan 24, 2022
Raising capital is one of the most difficult parts of real estate investing for most people. There are many different ways to go about raising funds for your investment opportunities, but they all have good and bad aspects. In this blog post, I will discuss raising capital for real estate in terms of three categories: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.
There are many different ways to do it and you don't have to stick with just one method. You can mix and match or use several techniques at once if your property allows it (for example private equity and private debt). The more ways you understand (and know how to execute), the better your odds are of getting a deal done that works. I've been at this for over 15 years now and continue to learn each day; my experience is what has allowed me to source 9 figures (000,000,000) of capital to date. The good news is that learning how to raise capital is a skill set that anyone can learn.
It can be incredibly time-consuming, frustrating, and oftentimes unsuccessful. Many people who try to raise money for their investments never really get anywhere. This is usually due to a lack of understanding of the fundraising process, related planning, and/or simply because they just suck at pitching their deals.
The ugly side of raising money for real estate is when you have to resort to using high-interest or predatory lenders. These lenders will often charge extremely high-interest rates and fees, which can quickly eat into your profits (or even cause you to lose money). Not knowing how to raise money can be very expensive and you should try to avoid these types of lenders if at all possible.
The final ugly truth to fundraising is when you miss out on the deal altogether and your deposit in the process.
In the end, raising capital for real estate is a process that involves a lot of hard work but can be very rewarding if you are successful. What would an extra $1,000,000 per year (or per month for that matter) allow you to accomplish? What kind of game would you be playing then?
