Bringing Together The Right Real Estate Investing Team Is Crucial For Success

You must build of team of successful people around who can help you build your business.  Each one should be able to help you accomplish a specific tasks associated with your business.  The better your team, the better you business will become.  You team should include, but not be limited to: title/escrow company, Real Estate Agent, Mortgage broker, private lender(s), Real Estate attorney, and general contractor.

The savvy investor realizes they cannot do it all themselves. Smart real estate investing requires a wide range of professionals with different skills and abilities. The successful team is far-reaching and includes realtors, property appraisers, home inspectors, contractors/builders, mortgage lenders, Insurance agent, Escrow officer, banks, property managers, attorneys, accountants, sign companies, printing companies, Cleaning person (important if you want to do a quick turn around),website design and promotion, and a partner depending on the complexity of any given deal.

Considering the amounts of money involved in real estate investing and the potential for loss the investor must take great pains to choose their team with care. Keep in mind the team is only as strong as its weakest member. Choose well and you have a team assembled you can literally "plug in" on any deal in the future. Because of the financial risk involved it is advised that you meet and interview each potential team member. Determine if they possess the same ethics, morals, and business acumen as you do. You may "sift some chaff to get to the wheat" but the effort will be well worth it.

The first question on many an investors mind is where to start looking for prospective team members. Unfortunately there is no handy list of trustworthy, goal-oriented individuals waiting for you to call. I suggest starting your search by seeking a referral from a successful peer you already know in the same business. This helps smooth the way with those individuals you contact.

One of the best ways to find good partners is to visit your local Real Estate Investing Association or club, often known as a REIA.  Here, you’ll find many like minded individuals, and you’ll be able to get referrals from your peers, many of whom have faced the exact same hurdles as you are.  These referrals are often great, because many of them understand the nature of your business, especially if you’re involved in creative real estate investing.

Getting your real estate investing team in place will take time and diligence, but the payoff at the end should make the effort worthwhile.  It’s a key component to becoming successful, full time investor. has earned its solid reputation by helping both seasoned and beginning real estate investors learn the best methods for effective and successful real estate investing.
