Wholesaling real estate has become a popular investment strategy for both new and experienced real estate investors. However, it is often preferred by newbies because, as a short-term strategy, it requires little in terms of capital investments – just an earnest money deposit that is held in escrow until the transaction is complete.
But, like all real estate investing, there are pros and cons to the practice and market factors that must be understood to be successful.
What Is Real Estate Wholesaling?
Real estate wholesaling is an investment technique in which an investor – aka – the wholesaler, enters into a real estate contract to buy a property - but chooses to assign the “rights awarded by the contract” (known as Equitable Conversion or Equitable Interest) to another buyer – with an assignment of contract, often before they have closed. The final buyer is known in the biz as the end buyer.
Real estate wholesale deals provide new investors the...

In addition to the appealing cash flow requirements of wholesaling, its recent popularity can be attributed to tremendous appreciation realized since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, as real estate wholesaling aligns well with real estate prices heading north.
Wholesaling and flipping are sister-investment strategies as both searches for real property that has been priced below market value.

Real estate wholesaling is an investment strategy that has become popular in the current real estate marketplace.
