How do I partner with a first-time home buyer in Nashville?

Nashville is the Bigger Pockets 2017 Best Market for Real Estate Investors. My friend works in downtown Nashville and has a steady salary, but hasn't been able to save the money for a down payment. How do I structure a deal where I make the down payment, my friend makes the monthly payments, and we divide the appreciation fairly when the property sells.

One idea is to form an agreement (partnership agreement). Set up the ownership percentage up front, what each is contributing and the roles of the partners. 

From there, buy the property in the partnership. That's how i've always done it.
