5 Signs of a Great Partner When Buying Investment Real Estate in Houston

Buying investment real estate in Houston is a great addition to any portfolio. As a much safer bet than the stock market real estate can provide a nice, steady flow of income and can also be used as leverage, creating more buying power. Buying investment real estate with a partner allows you to pool resources and make larger investments with larger returns.

Beginners in buying investment real estate in Houston, Texas would be wise to find an investment partner who has a lot of experience with the type of investment real estate you’re interested in and very knowledgeable about the market. This way, you’ll optimize profits and potentially minimize and share costs. You can bring suggestions to the table and have a partner to confer with, ultimately selecting stable and profitable investments that fit your ideal portfolio. Call (281) 742-0129 to discuss other benefits of buying investment real estate with a partner. Even if you have years of experience, it might be a good idea to partner with someone familiar in a different facet of investment real estate than you, or simply to have more money to invest for larger gains.

In the same way, it makes sense to work with experienced professional buyers for the best possible returns your investment portfolio can bring. When you’ve done your homework, found a great investment partner and you’re ready to begin buying real estate in Houston, turn to The Zenith Partners to find the perfect property! 

How to Find an Investment Partner

We can help you find groups in Houston, Texas where you can meet other real estate investors who may be interested in partnerships. When you meet someone you get along with, ask if they would like to get a cup of coffee to discuss a potential partnership.

You want to make sure your new partner is reliable and trustworthy, so don’t be afraid to ask them a few questions. Some examples might be: How many investment real estate groups are you currently involved in? How many investments are you planning to make this year? What is your potential investment amount if you partner with me? What investments have you made so far and what are their returns? How involved in the investment process are you planning to be? Who else have you partnered with that I can talk to?

Make it Legal

Protect yourself and your partner or partners when buying investment real estate. Form a legal entity and create an operating agreement. This will identify the ownership percentages of each partner and how much money each person has contributed to starting the partnership. You can also define the allocation of profit and costs of the investment real estate. 

Most importantly, the agreement will outline the roles and responsibilities of each partner. Make sure to define an acquisition and asset management process and hold each partner accountable for each assigned part of the process. Brainstorm all of the steps with your partner; finding investment real estate, making offers, the closing process and fees associated, how to manage rentals, what is the division of profit and when does this occur, maintenance fees, annual taxes, attorney fees, and much more. Figuring all of this out at the beginning is important for a smooth partnership and shows you’re serious!
