Make your own.  It will be more rewarding in the end and they won't look like every other rendering out there using the free ones floating on the internet.  Example: grass.  How often do you need a good grass texture?  Just go take a really HQ picture from a ladder of a lush lawn and use it with a good bump map setting.  Repeat for other textures you need.  

 

If none of that makes sense, just buy a pack out there and save a lot of time.  Also, maxwell redering resources has a ton of great free materials...you just have to sign up.  Some of them are maxwell-only files and some are jpegs you can use in Revit.

www.cgtextures.com is a pretty good internet source for textures, getting your own is nice but sometimes hard to find what you want.
