I've encountered some information that is customary to include your financing structure to sellers via an IOI/LOI. I'm looking to combine personal capital, SBA debt, and outside capital to fund a selected deal. Is it also customary to submit LOI's before investors are fully locked in? What about submitting a deal to the SearchFunder platform before an LOI is submitted to solicit investors?

If not already apparent, I'm searching for my very first deal--so any commentary surrounding my intentions or stated capital structure would be welcome!
