Startup Business Financing:Finding Funding for your Real Estate Investing

Services for Real Estate Pros with The Business Credit Insiders Circle

Having a tough time finding funding for real estate investing? It's no secret that one of the main reasons businesses fail is lack of capital.

So to help better prepare yourself for success in your new business venture I've put together a few tips and funding options you may find useful.

One of the key things you should first determine is how much funding you need to not only start your business but also stay in business too. Don't make the mistake of underestimating these numbers by projecting unrealistic revenues. Startup business financing

Next, plan a short term and long term startup business credit strategy which consists of funding the launch of your business (short term) and building your business credit files (long term).

Starting a new business involves risk and limiting the use of your personal credit and personal guarantee should be a priority for you.

Unfortunately, many business owners and real estate investors fail to build business credit separate from their personal credit right from the onset. As a result they find themselves back peddling and end up relying on their personal credit to finance the growth and expansion of their business and real estate investment portfolio.

Only after they exceeded their personal credit capacity do they realize that building business credit should have been part of their overall strategy. Don't let this happen to you!

Some of the more popular options you have for startup business financing (short term) include:

P2P Loans

Microfinance Loans

Social Loans

Loans for Small Business

Business Credit Cards

Startup Business Grants

By also building your business credit files (long term) your business will be in a position to qualify for its own financing at much larger amounts without using your personal credit or personal guarantee.

Some of the funding sources that result from building business credit (long term) include:

Vendor Credit Lines

No Personal Guarantee Business Credit Cards

Business Line of Credit

Equipment Leases

Fleet Programs

Remember, you can obtain 10 to 100 time's greater business financing with a strong business credit file than you could using your personal credit.

When you compare business credit vs. personal credit there are many serious things to consider including protecting the corporate veil.

Finding funding for your new small business can seem like a serious challenge in today's economic environment especially if you resort to conventional means. There are many creative business financing options available so don't get discouraged.

Part of building a successful business is putting a sound business financing strategy in place for both the short term and long term needs of your business. By doing so you can overcome one of the most common factors that cause businesses to fail which is lack of capital.

Thanks for the feedback Stan and definitely a must especially when dealing with conventional sources of funding. Some of the sources listed above do not require a business plan but it sure does make all the difference.

All the best,

Marco :)

The initiative taken for the concern is very serious and need an attention of every one. This is the concern which exists in the society and needs to be eliminated from the society as soon as possible.
