Each time I touch on this subject matter at all, I always have to tell my readers that I’m not an attorney or tax professional and that I recommend everybody have a securities attorney that they can use, as well as other professional counsel. It might sound like standard mumbo-jumbo, but it’s just plain true when you think about it. It’s foolish and unprofitable to pretend like you can do everything on your own in real estate and raising other people’s money. Don’t be a lone ranger.
