Here is my plan and questions: I'm buying a house or condo

Hello,Here is my plan and questions:I'm buying a house or condo conventional loan on my name. I will live there for a few months, I then want to sell it and with profits as I'm buying an REO I want to purchase another property and resell and possibly doing it again. So I plan to open an LLC so that profits of those transactions stay with the LLC (lower tax obligations), at some point all that money will be used for a business (non-real estate related)... so1- When and how do I transfer ownership of a condo/house to my LLC? Does it have to be at closing or is there a "no later than" type time frame?2- The loan stays in my name but legally the house would be under the LLC's name, so when selling it would profits belong to the LLC??...., that is the goal so profits don't hit my personal tax but stay with the LLC, am I right?2- One of the reasons for having an LLC is that for future property transactions I might receive money from a friend (investor) and I want to be able to receive his money and later pay him back and his profit via the LLC so I don't get hit with the profits on my personal taxes., I do want to have the LLC under my name only, he would just be an investor, does it sound like the right wet up??

I am looking to acquire an inn to both live in and operate.

I am looking to acquire an inn to both live in and operate. While my wife and I both have management experience and institutional knowledge (MBA), we do not have hotel management experience. We have the 20% that would be needed to put down, however are running into an issue with SBA backed loans needing that direct experience. The seller is going to remain down the street and actually we will be acting as a property manager for him, renting out a property that is adjacent to the inn and splitting profits. In order to acquire a loan we were thinking of asking him to be a limited partner with no liability and no monetary stake in the company. We'd like to get some thoughts on how this would work before talking to the seller about it and involving a lawyer.
