Financing Real Estate Investing

Real estate investing is a great way to take your finances to a new level. There are many people who are excited about the growth in real estate in various markets around the country.


Todd Lubar is an experienced real estate investor who has experience in many areas across the country. If you want to learn how to invest in real estate, he is a great person to learn from. One of the biggest hurdles that people have to get over is finding financing for their real estate property, reveals Todd Lubar has a system to help people through this process.



Financing Real Estate


As a real estate investor, one of the most difficult parts of investing is finding the right loan for your investment. Few people have the cash on hand to invest in real estate. This means that they must borrow money in order to make a purchase.


According to, many banks are unwilling to work with real estate investors. In the last housing crash, many banks took a financial loss on the loans that real estate investors had. It is important to bring the proper documents to the bank in order to get qualified for financing. The more that you prepare for this process, the easier it will be to get qualified. Todd Lubar always teaches people to go in with more information than you think you need.



Credit Score


One of the most important factors in getting a loan is the credit score. Todd Lubar believes that everyone can increase their credit score if they follow a few easy steps.


First of all, it is important to get a current copy of your credit report. This report will show you any negative marks on your credit currently. Some people have negative marks on their credit score and do not even know it.


Once you remove these negative points, your credit score will gradually go up. Real estate investing is not easy, but it is a great way to change your financial future.

George Soros Returns to Political and Investment Activity

The hedge fund legend George Soros was notable for his absence from a number of areas he had previously played a key role in, but this absence has led to a stunning return to prominence in 2015 and 2016 in all areas of the work of the man born in 1930. In terms of his business career, George Soros has always been an integral part of Wall Street with investors of all budget levels monitoring the moves of the Soros Fund Management brand closely; Forbes reports the appointment of Dawn Fotzpatrick to operate the Soros Fund Management company comes at a time when George Soros has made a triumphant return to investing and philanthropy.

A personal fortune rated at more than $25 billion in 2017 allows George Soros the chance to explore the many different options open to him in philanthropy and political giving. George Soros began the 21st century by making a major impact on U.S. politics as rules on financial giving were relaxed for political donors who hoped to push forward a particular political party, candidate, or cause. In the 2004 Presidential campaign season the lifelong liberal and supporter of Democrat’s funded the campaign of John Kerry to the tune of a reported $27 million, according to Politico. Despite remaining a major political figure George Soros largely sat out the 2008 and 2012 elections after making an early decision to back President Barrack Obama for the Democratic nomination.

The backing of President Obama in 2008 seems to have been a decision George Soros has found difficulties with as he privately admitted to aides of former Secretary of State Clinton he had made a mistake in not backing her for the 2008 election season. In 2016, George Soros has been extremely active on a number of political fronts, but has made the majority of headlines for his strong pro Hillary Clinton stance and anti-Donald Trump motivations; the Clinton campaign and groups supporting her candidacy for The White House have benefited to the tune of more than $25 million during the campaign season. Not all the finds provided by George Soros have been funneled directly to the Clinton campaign, but have instead made their way to groups assisting minorities within U.S. society in protecting their voting rights and ensuring a high voter turnout.

Despite making a major return to the political donating scene, George Soros has always struggled with the idea that a single individual can have such a major impact on national and international politics. Recently, Soros made the largest allowed donation to the End Citizens United group who are fighting to end the ability of political donors, such as the Koch Brothers to influence elections by investing millions of dollars.

Madison Street Capital Is An Award-Winning Investment Firm

When the finalists for the 15th annual M&A Awards were announced in August 2016, and Chicago-based Madison Street Capital was one of chosen, very few people in the merger and acquisition industry were surprised. Charles Botchway and Tony Marsala built a strong boutique investment firm the old fashion way. Hard work, perseverance, networking, and the strong urge to help small businesses grow, are the tools Botchway and Marsala used to be one of the best M&A firms in the industry.



Madison Street Capital was nominated for being the boutique investment firm of the year, and for closing the acquisition deal between Acuna and Associados S.A., and Dowco. The Dowco acquisition deal was just one of the M&A transactions that Madison Street Capital orchestrates every year. Botchway is known for negotiating transactions valued at $100 million to $500 million. Botchway has an excellent track record and a solid reputation when it comes to closing small and medium-sized mergers and acquisitions. In fact, the Madison Street Capital reputation in the investment industry is a global reputation. Tony Marsala is an expert in emerging market mergers and acquisitions.




Mergers and Acquisitions are just one of the financial services offered by Madison Street. The financial advisory services they provide to small businesses, and their valuation services are the best in the industry, according to Madison Street’s Senior Managing Director Karl D’Cunha. Madison Street Capital is an all-inclusive financial company that pays attention to details when analyzing the potential in companies that want to expand. Being recognized by M&A Advisor is proof. Madison Street Capital is serious about what they do.




The M&A Advisor has recognized the top performers in the industry for the last 19 years. The cream of the crop in the M&A industry has won the M&A Advisor award. But it is also an honor to be nominated. Madison Street Capital is on track to make company M&A projections in 2017. The executive team’s focus is on healthcare, construction, manufacturing, technology, retail, energy, mining, and transportation companies. Focusing on those companies, in those sectors of the economy, produced excellent results the last two years. Mergers in the energy sector were above average in 2016. Retail mergers are still challenging, but healthcare mergers like the Bracco/Bayer AG proposed merger are still sending shock waves through the industry. That merger is a $4.3 million deal. Botchway and Marsala don’t get involved in deals that big for a number of reasons.
