There are many different ways that people can invest their hard earned money. But most will say they feel far more secure in real estate investing or investing in property.

For these individuals they may want to consider becoming a wholesale property investor.
What is Wholesale Real Estate Investing?
It is all about getting a contract for a house of interest. Then one immediately turns around and sells that house or the contract. Most often the buyer of these types of properties are those that want to buy a house cheap. Then fix it up and sell it for a profit.
Is This Allowed?
Every state has its own rules as to whether one can buy and sell houses this way. If they are not a licensed real estate agent. Each person interested in this has to check their State laws to see if it is permissible.
What is the Purpose of Wholesale Real Estate Investing?
The purpose is to make a reasonable amount of money with as little effort as possible. These type of real estate dealings are becoming quite popular. For several reasons.
  1. They are often a solution for the individual who wants to sell their house quickly. But their house is in poor condition. There are no expectations put on the seller to have their house inspected for the sale. Also, it is a cash deal so the seller gets all their money up front.
  2. For the Real Estate Agents who have these type of listings they can be time consuming, with very little profit. Being as they have to be sold for less than market value. Being able to sell to a wholesale property investor really makes it easy for them. There are no conditions being put on the house. No concerns about having to wait for financing approval.

The realtor is making money even though less than what would be make on a standard type home.  The individual that is going to flip the home is still going to get the house at a good price. Maybe not as much as if they bought the house directly. But, they have saved on time, and time is money to these investors. Everyone comes out with a profit that they are satisfied with. Usually with traditional selling everyone wants the top dollar which quite often never happens anyway.
