This week’s question comes from Meghan on the Real Estate Rookie Facebook Group. Meghan is asking: How do I keep up the momentum after closing on two deals, when my debt-to-income ratio is too high to get another loan? I’m too new to bring experience to the table, and without much cash or financing, what do I bring to the partnership?

We’ve heard this A LOT from rookies, and this is one of the main reasons that rookie investors get stuck and stop investing consistently. Ashley and Tony both have some great advice on keeping the ball rolling so your investment portfolio keeps growing!

Here are some suggestions:

You always have some amount of experience that is valuable to a partner
Find strengths in yourself that partners may lack
Share what you’re doing with other investors or in your social circles
Be confident on future deals: you’re bringing partners an opportunity
Look into other types of lending like commercial lending 

If you want Ashley and Tony to answer a real estate question, you can post in the Real Estate Rookie Facebook Group! Or, call us at the Rookie Request Line (1-888-5-ROOKIE).
