Venture capitalists.
Banks.
US Small Business Administration. (US government) http://www.sba.gov/
You might try also the California Department of Commerce. They might have some contacts to individuals, ventrure capitalists who have wanted to cultivate business in the state, or potentially grants or tax exemptions as well. Start here: www.ca.gov Then go through the departments such as Secretary of State’s office for corporate registration, and the department of commerce.

It looks like you have the essentials to provide a sound business plan presentable to any of the first three entities mentioned, and the fourth might seek more information, or they may be adequately informed from your summary to direct you accordingly.

Is it wise to take out a loan to start flipping houses in Virginia?

Question by work 4 self: Is it wise to take out a loan to start flipping houses in Virginia?
I want to start flipping houses, yesterday! I’ve read up on how many people started and it seems that they begin with money they had saved or profit made from selling their own home. Well, I can’t sell my own home for another 4 years. I do have some savings but if I deplete my savings, I won’t have money to fall back on to make mortgage payments while I am waiting for the house to sell. Therefore, my only other alternative (that I can think of) is to get a loan from the bank to buy a property. My concern is, what are the chances of making a profit from the sale, after I have paid the bank their money back with interest? Has anyone started out in the business like that and found it successful? Any other suggestions?

Answer by gbsunshine
I am a title agent in WI and I have many investors that start out with loans. Actually I have one investor that buys all of his homes to flip with a loan from the bank. What your best bet to do is, buy a house and sell is to someone on a land contract. Meaning they would be sort of renting it from you with the intention of buying it within the first two years of occupying the residence. That way they are making the mortgage payment for you while they are renting and at the end of two years you make a nice profit of about $ 10,000-$ 15,000 without having to do anything to the property and no out of pocket expenses except maybe a little painting or carpeting. Look into it, it’s very profitable this way.

What’s a cheap way to start LLC in Virginia?

Question by daddy8ball: What’s a cheap way to start LLC in Virginia?
I want to start a LLC for as little cost as possible. Legal Zoom wants $ 600! Is there a cheaper way/web site?

Thanks!

Answer by mainecpa
Why do you think you need to organize an LLC? Do you understand the difference between an LLC, an S corporation and a sole proprietor?

There are both legal and tax ramification to all these organizational structures.

I just googled “compare llc and s corp” and this is a good summary

http://www.powerhomebiz.com/vol136/structure.htm

You should be able to find a local lawyer who will charge no more than $ 600. That is a reasonable price. With a local person, you have an available resource for other issues. Legal Zoom will not answer your questions a month from now, I’ll bet.

If you fail to maintain the formal details of your LLC, (On a year-to-year basis) you run the risk of someone “Piercing the corporate veil” (google it) which makes the corporate structure null and void and eliminates the liability protection.
