Well in Texas at least Ready Mortgage or Statewide, can’t say I’ve ever used them… private money is the source most widely used.
What you really need to be doing instead of whining is to learn how to find sources… call the I buy houses ads and ask the folks to lunch, go to your local RE meeting.
IRA money… you have to make your own contacts… it is a private individuals money.
Loans sources… local banks and mortgage brokers are numerous.
Notebuyers… Sunvest, Associates, Metroplitan, FSB in Arkansas… too many to name… again searching the web for note buyers and note websites and you’d have too many to name.
Seems to me I just helped your laziness somewhat… but the real deal is are you going to do something your self.
As far as marketing search the archives for a post by Bill Gatten… it has one of the best layouts for marketing I’ve seen.
It only takes a couple of ways, Bandit signs, direct mailouts, ads, calling on FSBO’s , networking contacts, atorney’s, CPA’s, and on and on.
Bottom line is that somethings you are going to either have to learn yourself or hire someone smarter than you.
Think of this website as just one tool for information, not YOUR ONLY tool (a very strong one) … and then you might be able to put it all into perspective.
Otherwise get yourself in the trenches, experience is the best teacher.
