If you run your real estate venture like a business, you’ll want to utilize a business bank account. But not all business bank accounts are created equal! It’s important to not only find the most cost effective solution, but also the account that fits your specific business’ needs.

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, Natali and I are discussing how to find the right business account, and how to use it appropriately! We’ll share our personal experience with using both big banks and local banks. We’ll discuss the mistakes we’ve made, how you can get your accounts in order, and much more!

More About This Show
Admittedly, we’ve opened a lot of different business bank accounts throughout our real estate career. If you aren’t used to running a business, this is an expertise that must be learned. It’s important to choose a specific business account, and not one that is intended for personal use.

When we opened our very first business account, we went to Bank of America, simply because that’s where we already banked. However, at that time, BOA charged $35 every month for that account. Remember, every single expense in your business comes out of your ROI, so we had to shop around.

Eventually, we found a no fee business checking account with a local bank. We have found that more often than not, you will have better options with a local bank. We always suggest shopping around, and the site Bankrate can help you find what meets your needs.

On today’s show, we’ll share why we still have business accounts with three different banks, and how we utilize each of them. We’ll talk about the importance of a no fee account, as well as finding an account without balance requirements. If you’ve ever wondered about setting up banking accounts for your real estate business, this episode is for you!
