In this episode of Get Real Wealthy Season 4, Quentin discusses the different ways to build an investment team in real estate: solo investing, partnering with other investors, and general partners.
Quentin starts by talking about soloi nvesting. Solo investors focus on building a team of professionals such as property managers, insurance advisors, and contractors to help them run their businesses. This approach allows them to get a higher return on their investment, but it also requires a larger time commitment. The second approach is bringing on partners. They’ll take on a smaller cut of the equity, but they’ll be able to scale their time more because they’ll have other partners and an established team with a system and process that are working for them.
General partners are real estate investors who work with other investors to build a team. Members can focus on their strengths and work together to build a larger business. This approach may result in a lower equity amount per project, but it also leads to a larger overall cash flow. Quentin adds that it just depends on your approach and how you want to do things.
Quentin also offers some tips and strategies for identifying which approach to take and building an effective investment team. First, to understand your strengths and weaknesses, make a list of what you believe they are and ask three friends for their input.
