Debt or Equity - Based on Difficulty Starting Out
Curious what everyone thinks here as I got into a discussion with a colleague based on the learning curve when starting out in real estate. Sure, real estate isn't rocket science, but consider it from someone just starting their career out with very minimal exposure/internship experience in the industry. Do you think debt or equity is more difficult for someone starting out to quickly pick things up and provide value for the team. My colleague started at a debt brokerage on an institutional team working on all product types and I started out in as an acquisitions analyst in which I worked a little bit on every major property type with a focus on multi. Both of us had little experience and both felt that when we started out, we had a lot of hurdles to get over and learn.
Thought this would be a fun/interesting topic, let me know what you guys think.
