What is a holding company? And how do you start it?

Hi, I’m curious to know what is a holding company and how do you start one? I currently own a multi family home and I want to get an investment property but would like to put it under a LLC but I keep hearing that it’s good to have a holding company if you decide to have multiple LLCs?

@Andy Rod how many properties do you own?  Is what you’re wanting to buy next a commercial property?

If you own zero or very few you don’t need a llc.  You think you do, you don’t.

Good luck

Not really matter, but to protect your assets and lower taxation better to open LLC in state where property located. And holding LLC in Wyoming or Nevada. This 2 states provide best assets protection policy.
