When does one plus one equal WAY more than two? Real estate partnerships! On this episode of The BiggerPockets Podcast, we sit down with two real estate investors (Jay Helms and Tim Kelly) who were attempting to build their business alone, but found they could do far more together. In this fun and fast-paced interview, you’ll learn what makes their partnership so successful, as well as how the team analyzes a market (including several can’t-miss online research websites), and how they took down a 42-unit apartment complex using some pretty fantastic creative financing. Whether you plan to build your empire alone or alongside a partner, this episode is sure to give you a variety of tips and strategies to help your business take off.
