A good place to start searching for money is at local-state banks. Many locally owned state banks have programs just for real estate investors. Note: When you find these banks you should also ask them how they dispose of their REO properties.
You will also need to make contact with lots of banks and mortgage companies to find out their terms for investors. If you are turned down for a loan from a bank or mortgage company- NEVER let that stop you from applying to others. If you stop applying for loans-I can guarantee that you will never get one but if you are persistent you might just be surprised at your results. Having a positive attitude, a good credit score and persistence are three keys to finding all the money you will ever need for your investing business.
