Need A Real-Estate Business Financing

Q.  I have a real estate investment corporation. I need working capital, 95% will be used for the purchase of deeply discounted single family housing. I can't seem to find financing. It is secured and you can't lose! I need $120,000-150,000. one time infusion of funds with a complete 2 years payoff. Can you help me?  - Richard


A. There are a few avenues that you can explore. First what other assets are in your real estate investment corporation? Often banks will allow you to cross-collateralize your assets to secure other properties. Have you secured a mortgage for the property? You may want to speak with your attorney to discuss the possibility of increasing the purchase price to leave the closing with working capital. If you are located in NYC (or one of the surrounding areas) I could help you to find an attorney that focuses on situations of these types. If all of these options fail, you may want to contact friends and family in order to secure investments from a large block of angel investors. Good Luck.
