What is Wholesale Real Estate

February 19th, 2021

Breaking into the real estate game can be intimidating (and just a bit scary) but if you use wholesaling to get your feet wet, it makes it less risky and you can do it with little or no money out of pocket!!

What exactly is wholesale real estate?

Let’s break down the 4 ways that wholesale real estate can be described.

  1. Wholesaling is the process of acquiring distressed properties at a discount and then passing those deals off to another investor for a fee.
  2. Wholesaling is buying low and selling low.
  3. Wholesaling is getting paid for finding good deals for rehabbers and buy-andhold investors for a fee.
  4. Wholesaling is getting a deal under contract and then assigning the contract to another investor for a fee.

All of these definitions are correct but the biggest distinction to understand is that with wholesaling, you do NOT make any improvements to the property (this is called rehabbing or “fix and flip”). Wholesaling is passing the deal off to someone else who will do the improvements.

Essentially, wholesaling is taking less profit now with no work (not doing any improvements) instead of more profit later with a lot of work (doing improvements and flipping it or renting it).

Why Wholesaling?

Not only is wholesaling the best strategy for getting started in real estate but it’s also the best way to make extra money, period. Here’s why... when done correctly, wholesaling doesn’t require any cash or credit. There is virtually no risk on your part, and it’s an easy way to make a quick $5,000 to $10,000. Regardless of your financial goals and whether or not you decide to pursue other strategies, such as rentals, rehabs, lease options, new construction, notes, or even commercial, there will always be an opportunity to quickly wholesale a property, make a fast profit, and move on to another deal.
