tying yourself to one investor has advantages and disadvantages. look at your investor for what he is. he is renting you money and for that wants a return. you are doing the work so you have to decide what your work is worth to you. if all you have invested is time then your risk is lower so will your profit. sit down with your investor and find out what his/her goals are. you may be pleasntly surprised that your willing to offer more than they want. if you make the first offer you will never know. of course this is a golden rule in this biz " Never make the First Offer, always try to negotiate a better deal" if you are tring to get a deal done to get the investor confident in your abilities then let him choose the terms on this one but be carefull. unless you are on the deed you are potentally selling real estate without a license and will get burned as realitors get hungry.
