Articles For Aspiring & Active Real Estate Investors
Real estate wholesaling is a real estate investing technique in which real estate investors begin by entering into a legally enforceable contract of sale to buy real property (rental property, investment property, or otherwise). The rights awarded by the executed contract (through the Doctrine of Equitable Conversion) are then sold to another buyer (often called an end buyer or a cash buyer).
The Doctrine of Equitable Conversion legally determines how a property’s ‘equitable title’ is modified when a contract is fully executed. When executed, the buyer receives equitable interest in the property. In contrast, the seller’s interests at this time convert to personal property, with a primary function to act as security until closing.
The property’s ownership hits a gray-legal area when a purchase agreement is fully executed. At this time, the ownership of the property is shared among the seller and the buyer in accordance with the rules...
The technique known as real estate wholesaling has become a mainstream real estate investment trend recently. Although certainly not a new investment strategy, wholesaling real estate deals has risen in popularity primarily driven by a real estate market appreciating at unprecedented levels – while laughing in the face of a pandemic, a global event once anticipated to hit the world economy meteorically negatively.
A real estate wholesaler essentially acts as a middleman, which is hardly a radical idea when one considers the latitude of permittable actions within the worlds of capitalism and big biz. The process, in theory, is simple. A wholesaler finds an available property for sale (be it a rental property or not), usually priced below market value, and enters into a contract of sale to purchase the property from the homeowners. The reduced price is key, so it helps to understand that these available deals are often distressed properties or those available due to a seller...

Utah is one of America's most unique and fascinating states. It was admitted to the union as our 45th state in 1896, also making it one of our youngest states.
Fifty years prior to statehood, Mormons first settled Utah as part of their search for a promised land free from religious persecution. Today, Salt Lake City is the world headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Mormons still make up about 70% of the state’s 3.2 million people and have considerable influence on many parts of the state and its institutions.
Utah is centrally located making it an important transit center, has a thriving economy, and a relatively young and economically stable population base.
For these reasons and many others, you may be asking yourself if wholesaling real estate is legal in Utah, and if so, what do you need to know if you’re considering this as an income-producing venture.

Real estate wholesaling has recently experienced overwhelming increases in popularity as an investing technique, which resembles the method for flipping houses, but without the money typically required to complete the wholesale deal. With its rise in recognition, critics have begun to voice their objections – asserting that a real estate wholesaler is somehow circumventing license law and acting like a real estate salesperson or broker but doing so as an unlicensed professional.
The reality is basic wholesaling principles are evident in every market sector - in supermarkets, banking, and the neighborhood kid’s lemonade stand – as it is simply the principle of investing for value with the intent to sell for a profit. These decriers fail to recognize the fact that a wholesaler of a real estate investment property is not selling real estate but their beneficial interest as a legitimate purchaser of real property detailed in a contract of a real estate transaction.
The real estate wholesaling business simply refers to an investment technique. A real estate wholesaler or investor enters into a purchase agreement (or contract of sale) that establishes for the buyer/wholesaler certain rights/obligations under the Doctrine of Equitable Interest or Equitable Conversion, but then chooses to sell these established rights to someone else, an end buyer, before the sale closes.
The difference between the original sale price for the investment property and the higher price paid by another buyer, often a cash buyer, is the earned assignment fee.
In other words, the buyer takes ‘equitable title’ or becomes the ‘equitable owner’ when the contract is fully executed. The time referenced in this regard is defined as the time between these two homebuying events -
