Why is this not talked about much here? I think it would be great to have some input on this topic. I mean hearing find a friend with an IRA/401k is great but what if you don't have a friend or family member with one of those? In here all I have seen is very little mentioned about this. I have searched and found very little on it without paying a lot of money for it. I know this is what I want to do. I know owner financing is a wonderful thing. But what if you can't find it? What if your can't borrow it? What if your credit is shot, your debt to income ratio isn't good? Then what? I just would like info from people that have stepped outside of the box, away from friends and family members and did this type of lending. How did you go about it, because I know there is a law that says you can't advertise it? And that the only way you can do it is direct contact. Any ideas? What type of presentation did you present? I think it would be great to get this going in here. There is a lot of us that would like to know how to get started with this type of lending. I know, speaking for me, I just can't figure a solid way to appraoch someone. I know that there needs to be contracts in place. Just to walk up to someone and say "hey do you have money I could borrow that could make you more than if you just put it in a cd/ savings account" would really feel strange. I am just asking does anyone in here know of a good presentation that you could set up to use? What materials you use? In my first RIEA meeting we saw a speaker selling his books there and this type of lending seemed really sweet. But of course he wanted at the least a arm to share his info with you. Anyways I just wanted to throw down an idea I had. If anyone wants to share, please do and thanks.
