Real estate investing can be profitable, but it’s not without its challenges. One of those challenges is getting into the real estate market in the first place. Some people give up before they even get started. They don’t think they can afford real estate. But as you’re about to find out, that’s not asking the right question. Some people downsize and save money for a down payment, but the amount is a moving target. By the time they have saved up enough money for the down payment, the price of real estate has increased. So, they are always playing catch up. The lucky few can tap into their network of family and friends to help with a down payment, but the underwriting to get approved for a mortgage has become even more stringent to prevent loan defaults. What is a person to do? Reframe your thinking and ask: how can I afford it? Then your brain starts working on a solution. This question is solvable. I discovered this in 2001 and the answer is: joint venture partnerships.

The majority of North Americans live in an individualistic culture that reward doing things on your own. Asians come from a collectivistic culture and their default thinking is how groups can get things done. The joint venture mindset is helping each other to be successful. It’s not about what I can get; it’s about what I can give.

Now think about this: is it better to own 1% of something or 100% of nothing? Because that’s what people do when they refuse to consider buying real estate with other people. Joint ventures are everywhere – look at pension funds for example. The fund receives money from thousands of employees over a period of decades. These funds buy real estate to ensure the asset continues to grow in wealth to fund the employees’ future retirement benefit. Real estate investment trusts (REITs) pool money from thousands of investors with the specific purpose of investing in real estate. The size of these joint venture partnerships may be huge, in the billions, but that is not to say the retail investor can’t follow in their footsteps. The simplest joint venture partnership is with two people who agree to pool their resources (financial or sweat equity) to buy an asset.

The real estate that you buy now does not have to be the condo or house that you are going to live in. Think of it as building your retirement nest egg. The main thing is to leverage your hard-earned money into the wealth-building profit centers of real estate.

Joint venture partnerships offer the quickest way to increase your net worth by sharing the financial load, and pro-rated equity, with others.
