2. REAL ESTATE-BASED PARTNERSHIPS MAY BE AN OPTION
Real estate-based partnerships — If you are fairly new to investing or have some distrust with the markets a real estate based partnership is generally considered a safe way to invest and something that you may wish to explore.
Salvatore M. Buscemi, managing director of Dandrew Partners in New York, stated to U.S News & World Report that typically this is upwards of 20-30 people investing in a parcel of commercial real estate. He makes note that you will want to ensure that you do a sufficient amount of research and get involved with a developer that has a proven track record.
“I would find a real estate attorney locally in town, and I would ask him if there any deals, partnerships that are being put together where people are investing in what we call stabilized commercial real estate, not value added.”
Overall the gains experienced from participating in a project like this can be significant and with a little research you should be able to find a variety of real estate based options to ponder.
