Where or how does one obtain money to invest?

by Hugh Grant
(GreenValley,Ont)

I have often said: "If I had $500,000.00 I could invest in proven companies who buy raw land and develop.I could double the investment in 5 years at a rate of return 14-15% I could choose also to draw a monthly income of 6%per year on the 500,000.00 (2,500.00) per month.

Back to the problem: Where does one get a break to get started? Investing is a wonderful thing but for many of us out there it is just not a reality!
Perhaps you could address that question in your teaching seminars?

Sincerely,
Hugh J.Grant

Where do you get the money to start real estate investing?
by: Tom Karadza

We hear ya!

You'er not going to like the answer but here's how we started.... we save up bit by bit by bit. And then when we had enough we jumped into the game with a small property. You let the equity build up in that and then you can choose to use that equity to acquire your next property.

With everyone being so busy these days it's tough but DO NOT let that stop you! You can do this, get out there and hustle and put some money aside. It may seem like it will take forever but your wealth building will snowball for you if you just decide to get started.

There is another way... you can hunt down Joint Venture partners who will put up the money if they trust you. I know this may not seem easy but we've seen it pulled off several times.

Stay positive and you'll get into the game sooner than you think. You can do this!

Tom
