While you might not think you need a partner, approaching real estate investing with a ‘lone wolf’ mentality is not the best attitude. You will need a real estate investment team or a ‘pack’ to make the most money in real estate. While certain aspects of real estate investing might be or seem cutthroat, this is not an every-man-for-himself (or herself) venture It’s a team sport.
When you invest in various properties, you will find a need for the same basic cast of professionals repeatedly. These are real estate agents, different types of contractors, insurance agents, title companies, attorneys, accountants, brokers, and lenders. Each one plays an essential role in your investment venture and affects your success massively.
