As any successful real estate investor will tell you, commercial real estate investments require capital. Sometimes, a lot of it. Two factors come into play when finding capital for your real estate investment, the property and your creditworthiness. Depending on either of these factors, you might be able to get bank financing, otherwise, you will need to seek private investors. Whichever route you take, you will need to know where to look for capital and how you can find real estate investors in Massachusetts.

Although a bank isn’t usually an investor, you can still secure financing for your property, albeit at a much higher loan rate and with a bigger down payment. If your project is a risky investment such as a rental property, and you are not established in that real estate niche, a bank might not finance you.
Real Estate Investment Clubs
Not only can you find a commercial real estate investor in a local investment club, nut you might find a mentor as well. Real estate investment clubs are good resources for new investors as you can learn a lot from the more experienced club members.
Telling everyone in your network that you are looking for a real estate investor takes very little time or effort and it could pan out in your favor. If your network isn’t very big, add to it. Talk to local real estate agents, visit bankruptcy or tax foreclosure auctions and always keep your eyes and ears open for new leads. Real estate investors are out there, you just have to look.
If you can’t find anything local, search online for new resources. Join forums and groups that discuss different aspects of real estate investing and become an active member in the group.
Present a Plan
Once you have found an investor, present your well thought out and researched plan. Don’t start by asking for money, show them the value of your proposal and give them as much information as possible about the property. Make it easy for them to see the pros of your investment and give them the confidence to invest in you.
