Foreclosure University Announces New Transactional Funding For Real Estate Investors

Orem, UT (PRWEB) June 12, 2013

Foreclosure University announces new transactional funding for real estate investors. This is causing a major buzz and excitement in the real estate community because it gives investors another option when trying to fund their end of the deal in order to sell to an end buyer.

Transactional funding has become more and more popular among real estate investors as title companies decided to “stop” allowing transactions that were not independent of each other. “At one time, title companies would allow investors to use their end buyers money to fund the transaction with the seller. That’s not the case anymore. They want each transaction to stand on it’s own independently,” say Jarad at Foreclosure University.

Because of stricter title standards, this forced investors to get their own independent funding to fund the transaction with them and the seller.????Most investors went to transactional funding because it still accomplishes what they need at a low expense.

With transactional funding one of the many benefits is they don’t have to provide employment verification or worry about credit because it’s irrelevant. They can also leverage someone else which allows them to do multiple deals at one time. Transactional funding is only used for back to back closings and is not to be confused with other types of funding.

Jarad says, “Most of the deals we fund are short sales, reo’s, and wholesale deals and in all cases we have end buyers lined up ready to fund their part.”

Another big piece to doing deals is the actual proof of funds letters that banks are requiring. Jarad says they offer that as well to anyone who is needing a proof of funds letter.

Foreclosure University also created a video to help investors understand how the process works and what they can expect from transactional funding.

Opportunity Fund Launches $500,000 Start-Up Funding Challenge to Help Bay Area Small Businesses Get Off the Ground

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2013

Today, Opportunity Fund announced their Start-Up Funding Challenge to help Bay Area businesses get off the ground. For a limited time, the organization is lending up to $ 500,000 to local start-up entrepreneurs, who are either launching their businesses or have less than a year of sales. At 7.5% interest and no loan fees, the challenge aims to offer financing that is hard to come by for most start-ups at an affordable rate.

Getting the access to necessary capital is a huge hurdle for most businesses that are starting out. And 45% of businesses fail due to lack of financing, said the groups Vice President of Lending, Marco Lucioni. With banks often unwilling to lend to start-up businesses, many people turn to friends and family, or high-interest credit cards. Opportunity Fund is seeking to help those businesses get off the ground and running, putting them in a position to succeed for the long-term.

Last years Start-Up Funding Challenge winner, Rachel Myers, started her dream business, the Home D?cor Learning Center in Concord, California. Rachel began teaching upholstery at Mt. Diablo Adult Education in 2007. In 2009 she and her students found out the program was going to be cut. Confident in the demand for her instruction, Rachel developed a business plan to offer classes on her own, but she couldnt find the funding to make it a reality until applying to the Start-Up Funding Challenge.

Rachel was able to borrow $ 30,000 in order to move into a new warehouse space. I remember being on the phone with Opportunity Fund, and I was in a state of disbelief about getting the loan. I wouldnt have been able to start this without Opportunity Fund. Or we would have gone so far into debt it would have been ridiculous, said Rachel.

Entrepreneurs like Rachel will be able to apply to Opportunity Funds Start-Up Funding Challenge through March 31st. The winners will be selected by a panel of Bay Area business and philanthropy leaders, and will be announced in April. For more information, please see
