I am an investor new to private mortgage lending looking for advice about how to get started.
I am interested in establishing a long term relationship with an experienced, reputable mortgage broker or firm that would find, qualify and (ideally) service private mortgages. I would like to start with smaller amounts and increase as I become more comfortable and experienced.
Is the above the best way to get started or are there other alternatives?
I have done some reading and research and understand how private mortgages work and generally what I’m getting into. I also have a strong background in real estate development. Can you suggest any resources or web links I should be aware of?
Do you have any gems of advice that you wish someone had told you when you were starting out?
Please don’t contact me with individual deals. At this point I want to start by going through an established intermediary.
Thanks for any help you can give me!
