Finding Real Estate Partners to purchase properties together

1 Reply

How can someone find a trust worthy business partner to combine resources and purchase properties together rather than a one-person show?  Is there a minimum and maximum number of people to form what would be a joint venture to purchase real estate?

Your local area is a great place to start. Go to as many real estate networking events as you can get to. Meet experienced people there, get in touch with them afterward, and take them to coffee or something. Get to know their needs and what you can offer, and look for the areas where those things line up. 

Reliability and trustworthiness are another matter. References, background checks, and your gut feel can all go a long way.

I don't know whether there's a min/max, but if you're doing a JV, everyone has to have an active role.
