How did you incorporate?

1 Reply

Hey guys! As a new investor I see a lot of articles about different kinds of corporations people can start to house their real estate business. Entities like S-Corps and LLCs are just a few options I've read about on the BP blog, but no articles seem to really dive into them. My question to the experienced investors is what type of incorporation did you choose (or wish you chose) and why did it work so well (or not!)? Looking forward to the discussion! Brian

I hired an attorney to incorporate. I use a corporation for my real estate brokerage. Then I use an LLC for holding properties. I did not over analyze this, but I followed the advice of my attorney and the majority of local investors hold their properties in LLCs.
