Find a Need and Fill It: Cousins Join Forces to Help Solve Problems for Real Estate Investors

February 10, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Youngstown, Ohio—Real estate investors usually begin by working on properties in their own area, but most are unable to expand nationally because they do not have access to resources in every city and state.

Many different resources are needed for the creative real estate transactions by investors who are involved in acquiring rehab money, wholesaling real estate, flipping houses, foreclosures, tax liens, pre-foreclosures, bankruptcy, private financing, and other ways to make money in real estate.

Many days can be spent researching and looking for the right funding, and if it is not found quickly a potentially profitable deal can be lost.

The frustration over the lack of help to find funding and other resources for real estate opportunities led investors who are also cousins, Joe Luckino and Frank Luckino, to create the resource they needed , and now they are sharing their information with others who are having similar problems.

“Every investment is different, and so are the resources that are needed with each deal. We compiled resources to help with finding local rehab lenders, wholesale real estate for sale, flipping houses, foreclosures, tax liens, pre-foreclosures, bankruptcy, private financing, and other ways to make money in real estate,” said Joe Luckino.

“Experienced real estate industry experts know one of the hardest things to do as an investor is to establish a team of contacts. Time is precious and deals can pass by quickly if you’re not prepared with the resources needed such as financing. We designed to link investors to hard money lenders, commercial lenders, mortgage lenders, Realtors, wholesalers, title companies, attorneys, and more within a matter of minutes,” explained Frank Luckino.

The site is also a great place to strengthen knowledge on the industry with real estate investment articles, an online chat section, daily news, and other resources, added Frank.

“More often than not, investors are locally based and have a hard time expanding into the national market. It is very time consuming to establish a network of contacts when you are not familiar with an area. We designed to allow investors to pick what geographic area they want to do business in, and then connect with resources in that specific area. We want this site to help new investors get a jumpstart in their own backyard and seasoned investors to have the opportunity to conduct business abroad by utilizing this massive network. Months of research can be reduced to a matter of minutes by utilizing our website,” said Joe.
