There's no better time in history then today to access capital for your real estate deals. Today, most people’s savings and retirement funds are sitting in a bank savings account, GIC (Guaranteed Investment Certificate) or a Certificate of Deposit (if you're in the USA). A large majority of people are dissatisfied with the returns they're getting from these traditional investment vehicles.

This is probably one of the best-kept secret sources for raising money in North America. Raising government registered funds like RRSP’s (if you're Canadian) or a 401k (if you're American) to purchase and invest in real estate. 

A few years back my wife and I were looking into money sources that we could access to fund our real estate purchases. After having worked with investors and using everything from money sitting in savings accounts, bank deposits, GIC’s and even home equity lines of credit, we wanted to add more sources to our tool belt. Our search led us to learning about how to use government funds to purchase real estate.

I get asked quite often from my clients, “Should I raise the money first or find the deal first?” My answer has always been to do both simultaneously. The 2 highest value skills to being a great real estate investor are the ability to find good deals and to raise money. If you aren’t doing either, you don’t have a business. One of the greatest qualities I see in successful real estate investors is their ability to market for discounted real estate. The ones who are out there in front of home owners, running numbers, negotiating great deals, consistently win over the long haul. On the flip side if you are great at locking up deals but don’t have the capital to purchase them you aren’t going to go far in this business.
