3 ways to find more investorsMar 31, 2022
Would you like to find more investors for your property deals?
It's a no-brainer, right? Of course, you do.
As property entrepreneurs, one of the quickest ways to grow your property portfolio or to do more deals is to use other people's money.
Most of the time, this will include banks, bridging companies, and crowdfunding platforms. But what about investor finance?
Investors are out there looking to invest their money with the right people.
And you just need to find them.
There are many different ways you can find these investors.
And we're here to share them with you.
Here are three things you can do to find more investors...
1. Raise your profile locally
Nobody will be easier to convince than someone who lives in the same area as you and knows a little about the local property market.
That’s why raising your profile locally can be a great way to find investors.
So reach out to local newspapers, magazines, radio channels, bloggers and offer to write them an article or be interviewed about what you do.
Keep the call to action very soft, something along the lines of “We work with private investors to do such-and-such. Contact me if you’d like to know more.”.
You need to be careful as the sentiment towards landlords, and more generally property investors & developers, is not always very positive.
You don't want to focus on money, profit, valuation, etc because it may attract a lot of negativity.
Instead, talk about the transformation, talk about turning unloved properties into beautiful homes, talk about giving tenants a home, and talk about what makes you a good landlord.
On top of getting investor leads, raising your profile locally may also help you get more deals!
2. Connect with introducers
There are professional introducers out there who make a living out of connecting private investors with property investors & developers looking for money.
The 2 best places to find them are social media (LinkedIn is good for this) and networking events.
Social media and networking events are actually pretty much the same thing. They are both spaces for you to network!
So network on social media like you would in real life! This is the way to build fruitful relationships that will yield the results you want.
Apart from professional introducers, think about all the people in your network who know you well.
If they know what you do and that you work with private investors, they may be keen on sending investor leads your way.
3. Use crowdfunding platforms
Crowdfunding platforms typically have a large base of motivated investors.
Investors who have registered on the platform for the sole purpose of investing in property deals.
You can’t get investors more motivated than that!
Using a crowdfunding platform enables you to tap into their investor base so that you can really focus on what you do best – finding and delivering deals!
So there you have it...
3 super simple ways for you to find more investors.
None of these are particularly difficult to implement.
They just require you to put in the time and effort.
And you will start building that investor list of yours.
