Getting the Money: The Simple System for Getting Private Money for Your Real Estate Deals is a new book by Susan Lassiter-Lyons. I was really interested in the book and got it when it was free on Amazon during the book launch. I personally thought the information was extremely easy to digest and loved all the personal anecdotes that Susan gave through the book.
Below is the short interview I had with Susan:
Why did you write the book.
Because this is the step-by-step guidance I wish I had when I first started raising private money.
Why do you have an expertise in this area?
I created a system and raised $26.2 million in private money from individual investors. $3.% million was for a private equity mortgage fund to become a hard money lender in my city of Denver, CO.
If you could magically give all if your readers one thing what would it be and why?
Confidence. Because there is SO MUCH fear around the topic of raising capital. Grow a pair, people!
What has surprised you the most with real estate investing?
How simple it is when you have funding and deal flow.
