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 Pennsylvania based organizations where you can get started.
The keys to success in real estate investing are multifaceted—it requires a comprehensive understanding of the market, strong financial management, effective property management, and a broad network of industry peers and professionals. As the real estate industry is continually evolving, it’s essential for investors to remain current with trends and continuously educate themselves. Building a solid network makes it easier to identify opportunities, form partnerships, and receive guidance, thus smoothing the investment process. Real Estate Investment Associations (REIAs) are valuable assets in this endeavor, providing extensive educational content, networking events, and mentorship programs.
If you’re having trouble finding a local REIA in Pennsylvania, consider trying these methods to engage with groups of like-minded real estate entrepreneurs:
- Real Estate Networking Events and Meetups: Networking events and meetups are fantastic opportunities to connect with other real estate investors. Websites like Meetup or Eventbrite often list upcoming real estate networking events in your area.
- Online Platforms and Forums: Websites like BiggerPockets have extensive forums where you can connect with other investors, including many from Pennsylvania.
- Social Media Groups: Joining real estate-focused groups on platforms like Facebook or LinkedIn can also be beneficial. Just search for “Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment” within the platform’s search bar, and you’ll likely find several groups to join.
- Local Real Estate Brokerage Firms: Attending open houses or reaching out to local real estate brokerage firms can lead to connections with real estate agents and brokers who can provide insights and introduce you to other investors.
Beyond local networking, larger national platforms like BiggerPockets, Zillow, and Trulia offer valuable resources that can greatly augment a real estate investor’s knowledge base and networking reach.
Zillow is a top online real estate marketplace that provides useful data on both local and national markets. With an extensive database and advanced search features, Zillow can be a key tool for identifying investment opportunities.
Trulia is another expansive platform, providing detailed property listings and vital local information, including neighborhood insights and crime statistics, essential for residential real estate investors.
Incorporating these larger platforms into your investment strategy, alongside local networking efforts, allows for a well-rounded understanding of the real estate landscape—from local trends and opportunities to national market dynamics. These resources provide you with essential information for making informed decisions and connect you with a wide community of industry peers and experts. Utilizing both local networking opportunities and larger national platforms strategically is a significant step towards maximizing your potential for success in real estate investing.
