What are the pros & cons of a property investment syndicate vs. just buying property by oneself? I recently had someone suggest forming a syndicate (just a simple group of 2 to 4 people) to buy real estate, renovate and hold for long term growth. If I have capacity to buy the property in my own right, is there an advantage to doing it via a syndicate with others? Is a synidcate only useful if don't have capacity to buy in own right? Other questions come to mind - how do we all access the equity when the property grows? If I organise it all, source the property etc. should I be entitled to some management fee? What would be reasonable? Any thoughts on +/- of this type of simple syndicate would be much appreciated.
