Partnerships are key to success in real estate investing.
If you’ve listened to Gavin talk before, you’ve probably heard him say it a million times. He’s never done a single deal by himself. He always works with a partner. So today, he’s going to tell you all about how to find partners, what to look for in a potential partner, and how to take all this information and use it yourself.
First of all, you need to find someone who is in line with your core business values. What are your goals for the business? Find someone who wants the same things. For Gavin, it’s all about working on the business, not in the business, so you need to find someone who is going to help you accomplish this.
Don’t waste your time trying to partner with someone who is doing 10 deals a month. They aren’t going to have time to work on your deals. At the same time, you don’t want to partner with someone who is completely new to real estate and hasn’t taken a class or read a book. You want to find someone who is trying to grow and expand but has a solid base to start from.
There are a lot of good sources online to find wholesalers to partner with. Facebook groups, meetup.com, and Craigslist can all be a great way to meet a potential partner. Also, if you have good relationships with cash buyers, realtors, and property managers, you can ask them. They not only know wholesalers looking to grow, but they might want to partner up with you themselves.
At the end of the day, it’s all about networking and relationships. To join Gavin and the REI Network, go to REInetwork.com/join.
