Investor Resources

As an investor you need to do your own due diligence on everything and not take the word of someone else, but a recommendation can be a great place to start! Here are some recommended resources I've used while building my current portfolio

Finding Deals

There are so many different ways to find deals! If you're brand new, get started by talking to a real estate agent so you can get access to deals on the MLS. As you look at more properties and define your criteria, start using alternate sources of deal flow to fill your pipeline! Don't stop with the categories below, tell everyone you know that you're looking for deals and then scour Facebook, Craigslist, your neighborhood, and anywhere else you can think of!

  • Real Estate Agents

While nothing can happen without finding a property, that does you no good if you can't come up with the money to close the deal. This can come in a variety of forms, from your own cash to money you borrow from a variety of places, people, or entities. Get started with the few below, and then get creative as needed to make the deal work for you!

  • Conventional lenders

    • Michael Caridi, MVB Mortgage​

    • Michael Woodard, Atlantic Bay Mortgage

    • Shaneka Robinson, Elements Mortgage

  • Commercial lenders (NC)​

Property Management

A great property manager can be a multiplier in your business, bringing you peace of mind, freeing up your time, and providing access to a quality list of contractors, vendors, and potentially deal flow. But while a great property manager serves as a multiplier, a bad one can drag you down! Start with recommended managers, do your due diligence, and use the one who makes the most sense!
