We require that you bring at least 20% of the purchase price to the closing table. Depending on the scope of the rehab and your experience, we may ask for a greater percentage. Our investors like to know that you are committed to each project and the best way to do this is require you to have some “skin in the game”. This also signals to investors that you are serious about seeing the project through to success.
