Building Your Real Estate Investing Team

One of the things that has become popular over the past few years is Fantasy Sports; Fantasy Football, Fantasy Baseball, and such.  The idea is to select the best players you can to increase your probability of a successful and profitable season!  Real Estate investors can benefit from a dream team too!  Only this is no fantasy… this is the real thing.  Whether you’re a total newbie or a seasoned pro, you need a dream team to contribute to your success.  No matter how you invest; wholesaler, landlord, rehabber or whatever, you need a dream team!

A dream team can consist of many different professionals.  These include contractors, attorneys (How to Find a Real Estate Lawyer), a CPA (Lower Real Estate Investment Tax with a Real Estate Accountant), a title company, insurance broker, lenders (hard money, private money, even bankers), landscapers, home inspectors, pest inspectors, etc.  Another often unsung hero of the investor’s dream team can be a good realtor or two or three!  I known some realtors that are great at finding the best deals while others seem to have a gift for finding buyers.  Others might be specialists in a particular neighborhood so depending on how much geography you cover, you might want a number of realtors on your dream team.

I’m often asked by new investors, just how do I put a dream team together?  Over the next few weeks I’ll share some thoughts on how to put your team together.  Let the draft begin!

To your success…
