You should really talk with your CPA and attorney to determine that, its really based on your personal situation. A very popular form of entity is the LLC, but there may be better options for you, depending upon your personal situation.
What does LLC stand for?
Depends on your tax structure and your net worth. Are you an MD that already has liability exposure hopefully covered by malpractice insurance. Most CPA's will tell you to form a single purpose entity that takes ownership of the real estate outside of the operating entity that uses the real estate. Tax and liability implications.LLC stands for limited liability corporation.
LLC's are used a lot in these situations, If you raising capital I recommend having to escrow accounts one for the purchase of the property and another to hold the investors capital. When you purchase the property transfer the investor's capital from the 1st escrow to the 2nd escrow. This protects the investors money and protects the sponsor as well
