I have been spending a lot of time the last few months researching the MHP industry and have learned quite a bit from this site and Bigger Pockets. I'm currently reading the 10/20 book as well as the due diligence book from Frank and Dave. My experience in real estate is almost zero, but I do spend a good amount of time managing securities investments at my job. I also spend a lot of time prospecting for potential multi-million dollar clients and that is a skill that could be beneficial to someone. I have two questions for the group, any and all constructive criticism/comments are welcome:
1) What could I bring to the table for a partner? I'm looking for someone with experience in the industry and who can pay a good piece of the down payment to partner with. So I'm asking myself as well as the community, what value could I bring to the table to make myself attractive to a partner? I know that in any business, if you can make someone money or save them some time then you can be valuable.
2) If I were to find something to bring to the table for someone experienced in the industry, where would I go to find a partner like this? Trade shows, forums, local real estate investment clubs? Or all of the above?
Again, any help would be very much appreciated. And feel free to ask follow up questions. Thank you.
