Articles For Aspiring & Active Real Estate Investors
Want to venture into the real estate business without using up all your savings or capital? Wholesaling real estate is the way to go.
Unlike other capital-intensive real estate investing ventures, wholesaling won’t have you dipping your hands into your savings jar, and you don’t need to own investment property either.
The real work lies in finding motivated seller leads for wholesaling, something this guide breaks down in eleven ways. It also explores the best lead sources, the number of wholesale leads it takes to land a good deal, and even ways to get free wholesale leads so you can fill up your sales pipeline.
A motivated seller in real estate is an individual eager or desperately looking to sell their home. The desire to sell may be fuelled by a job opportunity in another state or country altogether, the need to clear a mortgage before foreclosure, or because it’s a distressed property, and they want to get it off their hands.
Whatever their reason may be, it doesn’t always mean their property is fit for your investment. Also, just because they’re motivated to sell doesn’t mean they’ll accept your offer. Asking the right questions is key to ensuring you don’t purchase property too tricky to work with while steering the seller in the right direction.
We compiled a list of 25 questions to ask motivated sellers, starting with tips to help you build rapport with them.
