Four Benefits of Having a Real Estate Investing Partner

Man Shaking Hand with his Real Estate PartnerAs the greek storyteller, Aesop says, “In union there is strength.” It is widely known that more can be achieved when people work as a team. When you have a real estate investing partner, you could reap so many benefits that you wouldn’t have been able to if you worked alone. It doesn’t matter if you’re a first-time investor or have been in the investing business for many years. What a real estate investing partner can do is offer the necessary support that your investing business needs. They can lend a hand in managing the many tasks that are required when you own a rental property portfolio. This support that you get from a real estate investing partner can bring with it many benefits. And from among them, there are four that industry experts talk about most often. With the right partner, you get the benefit of the partner’s expertise and experience, any help they can give in making business decisions, a partner’s ability to source additional funding, and someone to share the burden of the business.

Expertise and Experience

One of the biggest benefits of having a real estate investing partner is the added expertise and experience they bring to augment your own. Ideally, you and your partner should complement each other. That means you should have different skillsets that work off each other to better achieve your investing goals. Having the ability to rely on the collective strengths of you and your partner can make a real estate investing partnership one of the best decisions you will make.

Help Making Decisions

There is already tremendous benefit with the additional expertise, but in addition to that, a good partner also gives you a second perspective when making important business decisions. When both partners are working hand-in-hand for the good of the partnership and your investing business, decision-making becomes both collaborative and more creative. Ideally, a partner can impart insights and suggestions that may not have crossed your mind. These can inform your business decisions and move you toward your goals.

Additional Funding

Often, a partner adds more than the business expertise and fresh perspective that they bring. They may also help out by providing an influx of funding for your investing business. Funding is an ever-present challenge for East Lyme real estate investors. One can really accomplish a lot more with the proper funding. And you can’t argue against the fact that having two sources of funds is better than one. When you combine each partner’s access to funding and other resources, you basically double the potential. You would now be able to do a lot more with your investing business than you could do on your own. Another advantage is that you can split the risk of your investments equally. When you do this, you are able to mitigate any potential losses.

Sharing the Burden

Finally, owning an investment property portfolio can be take up so much time. There are just so many tasks that have to be done, and many of them have to be done under time-sensitive circumstances. But if you have a partner, then it’s a different story. You get to share the burden with each other as tasks are assigned— half to you and half to your partner. This gives you the time you need to focus on moving your investing business closer and closer to your goals. A partner can also help with motivation. Should your resolve start to waver, there would be someone else to hold you accountable.

When both partners join together with care, residential real estate investing partnerships can be a very successful venture.
