Excellent Read, Practical Approach

I read this book because I have friend s and family wanted to invest with me. However, it’s one thing investing with my money, it’s another using someone else’s. I needed a place to start before using private capital and this was it.

Awesome resource

Matt dose a great job explaining the process of Raising Private Capital in this book, and the different types of structures you can utilize as a deal provider or a cash provider. He gives good real world examples and stories that help you visualize doing this your self. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to raise capital for their Real estate business.

worth the time!

As a small family landlord, I am always looking to add to my knowledge and skillset and have lately found that many real estate books are sort of preaching to the choir. Anyway, listening to Raising Private Capital was very informative, and I learned some new concepts that I hope to use in my real estate investing. Definitely worth the read! Thanks
