Because of just what the name says: limiting liability. If things go badly,
the corporation is liable, not the individuals.

Our LLC went bankrupt due to the poor timing of our houses going online in
the middle of a housing bust. Had we not been incorporated, individuals
woukd have been responsible.

Though probably not - probably the bank wouldn’t have given a construction
loan to 30 individual households to build a condo development in the first
place. Nor do I imagine our contractor would have been willing to sign an
agreement with 30 different people.

I can’t imagine how a major real estate project could happen without there
being a single legal entity involved.
