I want to start a real estate renovation, redesign and buy-to-let company. I need 200k start up investment. I'm wondering whether or not I can simply offer each investor a 100% return on their respective investments, as opposed to giving them a percentage of the company?
I appreciate this is a little unorthodox and as such, I am willing to secure all investments against future property assets, in the hope that this will give investors a little confidence. Being a real estate company, this would be a possibility.
This would enable me to accept investments from an unlimited number of sources, reducing the risk for each individual investor. Is this possible and if so, would they go for it? I just don't like the sound of giving away a chunk of my business and am looking for alternatives, if possible.
