Setting Up Your Real Estate Investing Business

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Think Glink Media

For people considering an investment in real estate, it can be tricky to know where to begin. A reader of mine wrote to me to ask about a property he was renovating in order to rent it.

He wanted to open a bank account to keep those funds separate from his personal finances, but the bank told him that he needed a business license. Confused, he turned to me for help. 

I contacted my colleague, real estate investor and author Andy Heller, who together with his partner Scott Frank, have written a number of books on the subject and currently hold more than twenty properties in their portfolio. 

Heller offered his advice, gained from years of experience in the real estate investing world. To read his thoughts about business licenses, LLCs, investment plans, banking, and more, see my full blog at http://real-estate.equifax.com/2011/02/setting-up-your-real-estate-investing.html

I love educating people on the power of real estate investing. I have been working with investors for the past ten years. I even have my own radio show.
