What is Wholesaling Houses?

Wholesaling is selling merchandise or goods to retailers as well as industrial, institutional, commercial and professional business users. It can also involve selling merchandise or goods to other wholesalers and subordinated services. Essentially, wholesaling entails selling goods to buyers that are not standard consumers.

In real estate investing & wholesaling, having an up-to-date & legit proof of funds letter is a necessity! If you do not have this, then you are investing like an amateur!

How To Wholesale Real Estate Step By Step - The Simple Process

What Is Wholesale Real Estate Investing?

Wholesaling is when you find a property, get it under contract with the owner, and then sell the rights of that contract to another investor who wants to renovate the property. With Wholesale Real Estate Investing, the goal is to always create what I call “Win-Win-Win Scenarios." Get ready because we're about to take a deep dive into how wholesaling real estate works!

How To Create Win-Win-Win Scenarios When Wholesaling Real Estate?

You create a win for the seller of the property because you are getting them out of a sticky situation. For example, the seller can be facing foreclosure and need to sell their home quickly to avoid ruining their credit for years. Maybe the property is owned in a trust with 6 different owners, and instead of putting the property on the market and evaluating 20 different offers, they may just want to work with you, with no commissions involved.

You also create a win for the real estate investor...

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 &...

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

Look at your wholesale real estate business as a football team. While growing your wholesaling company, you have to bring the best players and coaches into the team.

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...
