Building credibility among your private money lenders is essential to securing continued funding in the future. You have to remember that you will most likely be asking people, with virtually no real estate investment background, to give you large amounts of cash for something they know nothing about. So it is your job as the investor to inform them, and make them feel comfortable enough to trust you with their private money. Credibility kits are cheap in cost but great in value. A binder, some dividers, pictures, you are probably looking at around $5-10 dollars for a complete package. All the other information you are providing is FREE.
