Save or Find Private Investor ?
Partnering up with someone to fund a deal is a great way to get started. You can also have a deal funded by House Academy, here is the link. https://houseacademy.com/deal-funding/
I highly suggest having some funds if you are just starting out. You definitely have the option to get your deal funded through HouseAcademy Deal Funding but personally speaking I would have some funds to use towards marketing the property or any other costs apart from the purchase price that may come up.
