One of the main hindrances to investing real estate is getting the funding for your deals. For this meeting, we have financial experts from the Service Core Of Retired Executives (SCORE), Dave McCarthy and Ralph Meserth, telling us what traditional lenders look for when deciding whether or not to give us loans for our real estate and business activities.

Also, we’ll have a comparison between traditional and private loans with pros and cons of each with private lender, Adriene Morgan. This meeting will show us most of the ways we can get financing for our deals when we have to make all-cash purchases.
