What is a Real Estate Wholesaler?

What is a Real Estate Wholesaler?

Today,  I want to talk about wholesalers and wholesaling. I want to explain to you the basic concept of what it is and how it works and whether as a long-term real estate investor you should consider working with wholesalers.

So, a wholesaler is someone they're not necessarily a real estate agent who can go and approach sellers and say hey, a nice house that you have here, I'm working you know on buying properties in your area and I'd like to buy your house for let's just say two hundred thousand dollars, okay and they give the seller a contract for two hundred thousand dollars without the real intention of ever actually closing on that house for two hundred thousand as soon as they get that contract with the seller,  the seller agrees to sell it for two hundred thousand the wholesaler goes and they try to find a different buyer who they can assign that contract to they basically find somebody else and say hey I got this great deal this house I think is an incredible property I think fixed up it's worth 300 000 and I'll sell it to you for 220 000 and then what they do is they get the end buyer to buy it for 220 000 the seller still gets their 200 000 and the wholesaler gets their $20,000 fees.

It can be a very lucrative business there are some wholesalers who are extremely successful at what they do and I think there is a niche in the market for what they do and I have bought a property from a wholesaler very very happy with it he got a great fee on the property I got to see on the settlement statement what his fee was and I was still ecstatic. Yes, he got that fee but I got an incredible property at a great price see part of being a real estate investor is it can be very hard to scour and find all the right deals all the time not only can it be hard it can also be expensive you know sometimes people start sending letters and they start sending texts and they start calling by the time you factor in the cost of doing all those things in your time and money.

It can be very hard to find those deals so i say when the opportunity is right it's absolutely okay to let a wholesaler do all the leg work for you and then you are able to still buy a property at a great price and you know but sometimes wholesaling is not right you know so there are some cases where i think wholesalers could do a better job of informing the consumer of what their intentions with the property are because if there was you know a little old lady who could have got 220 from for her house that's why i don't personally wholesale i want to be able to help my clients get 220 if there's an investor out there who wants to pay 220 for it but again i have bought properties from wholesalers and extremely happy with my experience if you're working with an agent and you're thinking about investing in real estate i would absolutely make sure that they're sending you wholesale list opportunities i know here in the Phoenix area as an example i get probably two emails a day it feels like sometimes from wholesalers with whole lists of properties that they're wholesaling sometimes i don't love their numbers you know we gotta vet their numbers and make sure that we agree with what their valuations are but there have been some very good opportunities there.

How to sell your home in this shifting market! Buyers want a BANG for their BUCK ???? A lot of sellers want to look at the comps for their house and that's how they're going to determine the value of their house so they're looking at homes that sold a month or two months or three months ago to determine what they build their house is worth and I think that's certainly a good approach but buyers certainly, they might consider the comps but the bigger factor for them is the payment. They're not necessarily
What does a housing market crash look like? ??
If you're concerned about a potential crash in the housing market, I just wanted to share a possible Insight with you. One of the main things that would cause a potential crash in housing values would be a massive wave of foreclosures like we saw in 2008, 2009, and 2010. Well, according to core logic, right now nationally and locally really we're at an all-time low of delinquencies on mortgages and serious delinquencies which is defined by someone who's at least 90 days late on their mortgage not only is it
Sellers are giving concessions again!
Now that the real estate market has seen that slowdown, we're seeing a very common trend where in which a seller is offering to give concessions which means they're saying hey you know what brings me this offer and I'll give you a $10,000 kickback to help cover your closing costs or to buy down your interest rate and I think that a lot of buyers that I speak to don't understand how this works. So I wanted to create a quick video on this. Basically, lenders say hey you know what the par rate is whatever it

How can you know if a property is overpriced?
How can you tell if a property is overpriced? Well, there are a lot of things to look at and when we're deciding that together we'll be doing things like looking at the comparable sales but I do have a general rule of thumb that I shared with most of my clients and that is if the home has been on the market for more than 30 days and they have not done any price reductions it is almost certainly overpriced. The market has had 30 days to decide if they want to buy that house at that price and so far no one ha
Conventional loan limit increased in 2022
Just want to let you know the conventional loan limit has recently been increased. It was roughly $640,000 or $645,000 and it is increasing for 2023 to $715,000 which means that in order to use a standard qualified mortgage with a conventional loan, the max loan amount is going to be $715, 000 starting in 2023 but a lot of lenders in anticipation of that change are already allowing you to use that as your new loan limit. So just wanted to let you know if you were previously looking to max out the conventio

Arizona property taxes are paid in arrears ????
One of the things that are really confusing when you're buying a new construction home is how the property taxes work especially in Arizona because property taxes are paid in arrears. So, here's what happens, you have a new home built and the county assessor has not yet assessed the value of that property with the structure on it so the only taxes that they're actually charging initially is on the raw land but lenders they look at that and they say okay we know the property taxes on this $500,000 house aren
