(0:05:59) – Wholesaling Real Estate (5 Minutes)
In this section, we delve into the world of wholesaling real estate, specifically vacant land. The process involves getting a piece of land under contract at a discounted price and then selling the purchase agreement to someone else for a slightly higher price.
This method provides an opportunity for those who may not have the funds to purchase a property outright, allowing them to make a down payment and monthly payments instead.
The key is finding that one landowner out of a hundred who is willing to sell at a discount. These deals can be assigned to cash buyers, builders, developers, or even individuals just looking for a piece of land.
