Do I need an LLC business to start RE Investing?

4 Replies

I am forming a team/business partner to start on real estate investing, and I want to ask if we need to get some kind of formal business licence such as an LLC...or we can just do it in personal/individual level?

If you are dealing with partners, I would highly suggest creating an LLC entity AND have it include a an operating agreement that covers who does what and how you will eventually dissolve the company/dispose of the property.
