How the Process Works
Four easy steps for securing your real estate investment
We Review Your Project
Our team of experts will quickly review and assess the value of your property, including After Repair Value, and determine whether the deal meets our criteria for loan approval.
Loan Approval and Documentation
Once your loan is approved, our team will work to collect all the necessary information and documentation in order to ensure we meet your target closing date. In addition, we’ll provide additional details on closing costs and fees required to finalize your loan.
Closing the Deal
At closing, our team will provide the funds needed to help you secure your property while providing you with the final amounts required to secure the loan, as well as kickstarting your initial repair budget. Once you sign, we get to work on helping ensure your project is successful and completed within the loan term.
If you're not ready to invest today, educate yourself and begin to build your network. Here are some Iowa based organizations where you can get started.
Real estate investing requires not just financial acumen, but also a profound understanding of the market, adept financial and property management, and a robust network of industry peers and professionals. Given the dynamic nature of the real estate sector, continuous learning and staying abreast of latest trends is indispensable for investors. Having a solid network paves the way for swift identification of opportunities, forging partnerships, and obtaining guidance, thereby streamlining the investment process. Real Estate Investment Associations (REIAs) play a pivotal role here, offering a wealth of educational content, networking events, and mentorship programs.
- Kentucky Real Estate Investors Association (KREIA): KREIA is a statewide association committed to advancing real estate investment, property management, and landlordship through continuous education and networking. It provides an array of resources, including seminars, workshops, and events, that help members fulfill their investment objectives.
- Queen City Real Estate Investors Association: Focused on providing education, networking opportunities, and resources to real estate investors in the Kentucky region, this association holds regular meetings, training sessions, and networking events, empowering investors to successfully navigate the local real estate landscape.
Alongside these local associations, larger national platforms like BiggerPockets, Zillow, and Trulia offer invaluable resources that can significantly enhance a real estate investor’s knowledge base and networking scope.
BiggerPockets is an extensive online community providing a multitude of resources, including educational content like blogs and podcasts, a marketplace for property listings, and networking opportunities.
Zillow is a leading online real estate marketplace that offers indispensable data on both local and national markets. Its comprehensive database and advanced search features make it an excellent tool for identifying investment opportunities.
Trulia provides another wide-ranging platform, offering detailed property listings and valuable local information, such as neighborhood insights and crime statistics, which are crucial for residential real estate investors.
By incorporating these larger platforms into your investment strategy, along with local REIAs, you can gain a comprehensive understanding of the real estate landscape—from local trends and opportunities to wider national market dynamics. These resources not only provide you with the crucial information necessary for making informed decisions but also connect you with a broad community of industry peers and experts. Leveraging both local REIAs and larger national platforms strategically is a key step towards maximizing your potential for success in real estate investing.
