50-50 partnership #newbie

4 Replies

Hey guys. I have a really good friend that i know from high school who wants to invest in real estate. She has the money and i have the knowledge. She doesn’t wanna be involved at all in the day to day. Does 50/50 sound good or should she get more?

50/50 is great. Equally motivated, fair split, 

As long as you do your part, work hard, be a shark. Go for it!

50\50 Sounds good to me. I am in a similar situation with my mentor where we agreed that I bring the properties, he brings the cash, and we split the profit 50/50. Its worked great for me.

I’m in a similar situation with my sister. We haven’t talked specific #s but that seems to be where we’re going. I wonder though if you should discuss a time frame for that arrangement. Eventually you will may have the means to do deals without that partners funds and if all they contribute is cash, you might be better off with a different arrangement.

Example: first 4 deals 50/50, then we re-examine or something like that. I would hate for a partnership to go sour because of a lack of communication on the front end.
