This is a question we see being asked frequently in the real estate investing community. Today, we're getting right to the bottom of it!
Yes, you absolutely can wholesale a listed property on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service).

The reality is that new leads are uploaded to the MLS in your area...EVERY...SINGLE...DAY.
Well, if this rings true, then....
Most investors have never developed a system around the MLS or have been able to get deals consistently off of the MLS. This is why a lot of people can say “stay away.”
People are afraid of what they don’t understand, and a lot of people don’t understand how to acquire properties to wholesale from the MLS.
See, most "real estate...

"The real estate industry has helped create more millionaires than any other industry in America."
I'm not sure who said this exactly (do you??), but it tends to ring true!
However, I'm sure we can agree that real estate is one of the few industries which has various avenues to make money and build long-term, generational wealth.
Whether you're getting your license and becoming an agent, holding rental property and building equity, or finding fix and flip properties, there's a way for everyone to make money.
One of my favorite (and not so talked about) avenues to make money in this industry is called "wholesale real estate."
In this article, we get into detail all about wholesale real estate and if you're not wholesaling yet, we'll cover 5 main reasons why you should start today!
Wholesale real estate is when you find a great investment opportunity (for example, a house), get the property under contract, and then sell the rights...
House Flipping TV Shows have become increasingly popular over the years! While house flipping shows are a great way to be introduced to the real estate industry, there is still lots to learn that’s not being covered on your television.
Flipping a house entails purchasing a home with the intention of renovating it and reselling it to make a profit.
Whether you’re planning to flip a house, or in the middle of a project, watching these shows can provide helpful instruction and inspiration.
Let’s give you the run down on house flipping shows so you can see the reality behind it all!
So, how did house flipping shows start? Well, the great economic recession hit the world in the 1980s. During this time, earnings from the stock market were down as house foreclosures went up. Guess what started to happen?
Savvy investors were able to get great discounted prices on houses and began buying foreclosed homes, fixing them up, and...
Real estate brokers & agents provide a convenient way of searching, buying, and selling properties. That’s because brokers & real estate agents have unique skill sets and access to industry-specific listing services like the Multiple Listing Service.
In real estate, the ‘MLS’ stands for Multiple Listing Service. The MLS is an online software that brokers & agents utilize to establish contractual compensation offers, accumulate, and even disseminate the information required for appraisals. In simpler terms, it is a database of relevant information on homes or properties for sale in a particular region.
Using this database, real estate agents find the right properties or homes to show prospective buyers with ease. The information contained in this database also plays a very crucial role when it comes to making offers and negotiating real estate deals.
With a whirlwind of information out there, the short sale process can become very confusing and tedious to accomplish. In this article we will break down the core concepts of a short sale in an easy to understand step by step process.
Short sale refers to a real estate sale where the net proceeds of a property sale fall short of all debts that liens have secured against that property. In other words, it’s the sale of a property at a price less than what the current owner owes.
For instance, the amount owed by a homeowner can be $500,000 on a mortgage. However, the value of the home in question can be $400,000. As such, there is a negative equity of $100,000.
But, why would a lender agree to a short sale? Well, lenders are in a money making business. They are not interested in owning homes. When a lender takes a property back and forecloses it, the property is considered a non-performing loan.
