wholesaling Apr 15, 2019

 

In this video, a Pro Wholesaler Student came into the office and I taught him about wholesale real estate investing.  In this article, I will recap the 3 TIPS I covered with Mike so that you can learn how to start wholesaling real estate sooner rather than later!

3 Tips On How To Get Started Wholesaling Real Estate

1. Get Access To The MLS

2. Attend Real Estate Investors Association Meetings (REIAs)

3. Only FOCUS on 1-2 Marketing Strategies (NOT 5-10 Strategies)

 

Tip #1 - Getting Access To The MLS

First off, what we talked about was getting MLS access. What's MLS access? It's the Multiple Listing Service. It's a database of all leads on the market in your area. It’s very important as a real estate investor, and as a wholesaler, to get access to this because, if you get access to this, you have access to all the leads on the market! Now, on the MLS there are houses that are for sale that have been renovated… These aren't really good leads to fix &...

A Guide On Flipping Houses | Real Estate Skills

House flipping is becoming a popular trend in the modern real estate industry. The trend is attracting investors in huge numbers. Maybe you are thinking of joining the trade but still unsure on how to start flipping houses. If so, read on to learn everything you want to know about house flipping and how to get started.

What Is Flipping Houses?

There are varied definitions of flipping homes. However, it simply refers to an investment strategy where a real estate investor buys a property at a discount and improves it for sale at a higher price later. Flipping houses is a strategy for making quicker profits as opposed to buying, holding, & renting. Profits can be quite lucrative if the conditions in the real estate market are favorable.

House flippers often prefer buying homes that are old and distressed because such properties are easy to acquire at fairly cheaper prices, such as foreclosures or short sales. Thus, they present higher chances for investors to make a...

How To Build A Wholesale Real Estate Team

Once your wholesale real estate business starts to bring in more deals, doing all the work alone will be increasingly difficult. Since sealing each wholesale deal entails completing many tasks, you’ll have to wear different hats. However, some tasks can be very challenging while others will be more mundane. Once work starts pilling up after sealing a few deals, you will find it important to build a wholesale real estate. Doing so will relieve you some workload while allowing you time to build and grow the wholesale real estate business.

Wholesale Real Estate Team Analogy: Investing and Football

The first season entails playing all positions in the team including the position of the owner, head coach, and the general manager. This will help you to develop more skills and get you more involved. However, you...

What Edgar Thinks About The Pro Wholesaler Membership

Edgar has already completed his first wholesale real estate deal since joining the Pro Wholesaler Membership!

Here's his review & testimonial of the Pro Wholesaler Program:

Dear future Pro Wholesalers, my name's Edgar Espinosa, I am 21 years old, and I live in Atlanta, Georgia. Before I get started, I want to thank Alex for giving me the opportunity to be in his Pro Wholesaler program. It has honestly changed my life completely. Alex has got me farther than I thought I could get to. I would not be where I am right now, if it wasn't for him. He has pushed me to achieve many of my goals, and as well as keeping my head strong.

At the beginning of the course, Alex's goal was to make sure that we knew where we wanted to be at in the future. Basically, to know our why. He provides us with a lot of tools, with a lot of resources, to help us find our why basically, our goal. Every piece of information that he provides us with, it is well said, very clear, for us to understand, and it...

How To Become A Commercial Real Estate Agent - 3 Tips

The Commercial Real Estate industry is HARD.  Commercial Real Estate is not for the weak hearted; however this article offers 3 pieces of advice that will help cut down your learning curve and perform FAR above the majority of your competition.

FACT: Per Tom Ferry’s website (one of the top producing real estate brokers in the United States) 87% of all real estate agents FAIL and get out of the industry within the first 5 years of being licensed.  My guess is that in the Commercial Real Estate space, that number a lot higher, likely in the mid 90% range.

So why do the vast majority of new commercial real estate agents fail?  Is there not enough business to go around?  Has every property owner already forged their relationships with existing brokers and thus all clients are already spoken for?  Is it a lack of experience in doing deals?  Lack of network, creativity, hustle, etc?

The brutal truth is: it can be a combination of all...

Tyler's First Wholesale Deal - How He Did It in 3 Weeks!

Meet Tyler. Tyler Toubeau started working with me when he had already spent a year and a half of time, $30,000 in real estate courses, and $12,000+ on marketing trying to get his first wholesale deal. Unfortunately, Tyler was not able to get his first wholesale deal alone in those 18 months.

He attended workshops just like you did and was very skeptical. Tyler knew that if he didn’t make a change in his life that nothing was going to change and he decided to trust me and the process and jump right in.

After a year and a half of spinning his wheels, he started working with me and completed his first wholesale deal WITHIN 3 WEEKS!

Tyler did an amazing job on this wholesale deal and has now completed multiple other wholesale deals, as well!
