The problem for many investors is that real estate investing groups can charge monthly fees up to $100 which eats away at any return on the investment.
It’s easier than you think to start your own real estate investment club, benefiting from the power of the group but saving money in the process.
Here, I’m going to show you how to start your own real estate investment group and how to find the best deals.
What is a Real Estate Investment Group?
Real estate investment groups benefit by bringing together different people that can all bring their expertise including investment analysts, accountants, lawyers, negotiating and closing specialists, and contractors.
Starting Your Own Real Estate Investment Club
It's much better to start your own real estate investment club. First, the for-profit membership groups really don’t provide anything but organization. You can find all the information online and for free.
What is Real Estate Crowdfunding?
Real estate crowdfunding is a type of equity crowdfunding. You are either loaning a real estate developer money or investing in their project. You get a legal ownership of the property and returns.
Real Estate Investment Strategies for Your Group
Your real estate investment group can help decide where and how you want to invest. It’s a good idea to invest in properties across at least a few different cities.
Finding Investment Property for Sale
The internet and real estate crowdfunding has made the process a lot easier. I would suggest assigning each person in your real estate investment group a different website to follow for deals.
Finding other Real Estate Investors for Your Group
Understand that you don’t need dozens of group members, especially if you plan on keeping the club informal, but members do need to be engaged enough that they contribute to combined knowledge.
