Articles For Aspiring Real Estate Investors
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!
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...
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!
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)
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 &...
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.
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...

Here's his review & testimonial of the Pro Wholesaler Program:
Dear future Pro Wholesalers, my name's Edgar Espinosa, I am 21 years old, and I live in Atlanta, Georgia. Before I get started, I want to thank Alex for giving me the opportunity to be in his Pro Wholesaler program. It has honestly changed my life completely. Alex has got me farther than I thought I could get to. I would not be where I am right now, if it wasn't for him. He has pushed me to achieve many of my goals, and as well as keeping my head strong.
At the beginning of the course, Alex's goal was to make sure that we knew where we wanted to be at in the future. Basically, to know our why. He provides us with a lot of tools, with a lot of resources, to help us find our why basically, our goal. Every piece of information that he provides us with, it is well said, very clear, for us to understand, and it...

Meet Tyler. Tyler Toubeau started working with me when he had already spent a year and a half of time, $30,000 in real estate courses, and $12,000+ on marketing trying to get his first wholesale deal. Unfortunately, Tyler was not able to get his first wholesale deal alone in those 18 months.
He attended workshops just like you did and was very skeptical. Tyler knew that if he didn’t make a change in his life that nothing was going to change and he decided to trust me and the process and jump right in.
After a year and a half of spinning his wheels, he started working with me and completed his first wholesale deal WITHIN 3 WEEKS!
Tyler did an amazing job on this wholesale deal and has now completed multiple other wholesale deals, as well!
This video is perfect for you if you’ve ever wondered, “How am I going to get my first wholesale deal?”
In this video you’ll see:
Are you a Real Estate Investor and ever wonder the question of: "Do I Still Make Offers Even If There Are Offers Higher Than Mine?"
From this video, you will quickly LEARN WHY it makes completes sense to submit offers on properties you are looking to wholesale and fix & flip EVEN IF there are higher offers than yours!
This video is a sneak peak of the Q&A Mentor Calls that take place with those in our Pro Wholesaler Program. The Q&A Mentor Calls take place every other week where all students in the program get to ask questions about the wholesaling process, contracts, specific deal questions, real estate negotiation, and any other questions regarding wholesaling and fixing & flipping real estate.
