Every real estate investor has different view and goal of their investing. They also come from different background. Some investor can be part-time teacher, retired office worker, etc.
Their goal can be different as well. Some of them aim to build wealth and some others aim for monthly passive income.
Every investor also has different view on how to spend their fund. It might be easy for you to find people who are interested enough to invest in real estate property. However, finding people who can commit is another case.
They may be people who are willing to contribute paying for funds for the investment but they are not willing enough to follow your specific deal.
