ou should also consider this in your plans. if your creating a buyers group then you have to figure out what to buy. Then you have to split whatever you buy with your other partners, then you will basically be selling items off the same load. So you will be competing with your other members of your buying group.
The largest majority of buyers groups fail because of trust issues. Can you aquire th trust of people to buy mass bulk. Its not easy.
If You are a part of my investers group that we are still forming. Maybe once you joined you could consider spending your time talking to them first. As if this is successfull you guys can build relationships as an investment group and you might have your buyers group rather then trying to go out all alone ... not to mention if this work out you will all have some extra money to reinvest in other ideas.
