Learning How To Wholesale

On this podcast episode I talk about why learning how to wholesale is a great place to start if you are a new investor. Learning how to wholesale and find houses at a deep discount is very important for you as a real estate investor and will make you a much more well rounded real estate investor. There are three types of real estate investors: 1. investors that buy rentals using a realtor 2. investors that buy rentals from a wholesaler 3. investors that buy rentals from sellers direct If you want to get the best wholesale deals at the lowest wholesale prices, then you will need to buy directly from motivated sellers. Those motivated sellers could be financially distressed (foreclosure, short sales, bankruptcy etc). They could be bank owned properties owned by the bank (REO). Or they could be properties that have been damaged by hurricanes, storms, floor or fire. If you want to find properties at a discount your seller is going to need to be motivated to sell at a discount. On this episode I talk about long term real estate investing strategies to create and build wealth like the Buy Repair, Rent and Refinance Strategy (BRRR). To employ this well known strategy you need to be able to find wholesale deals at wholesale prices that are purchased at no more than 75% of market value. That is the hard part. And realtors won’t be able to help you with this. The way you find wholesale discounted deals is by buying directly from banks, buying from wholesalers, or buying directly from motivated sellers. Buying direct from motivated sellers is your best option. Soon, bank owned properties, foreclosures and short sales will be booming. But to buy these properties you have to pay CASH (no mortgages allowed). If you don’t have the cash you need to have a private lender in place that will lend you the money. To get started, you will first need to learn and have a very solid understanding of what a house would appraise for, the repairs required to fix the house and what those repairs would cost. Only once you know what the house is worth fixed up, and what it would cost to fix it up, are you able to calculate your maximum offer price.

Excellent Content!!!!!

This is a wonderful podcast to listen to with such valuable content. I was very interested to listen to your take on why one should purchase rental property.


Best real estate investor podcast.

Lex gives you real tips with actual names of multiple sites and services to use from the beginner up to advanced. I feel he’s giving away his classes for free on the podcast. Most podcasts stop short of details and give generic advice unless you join there groups.

Great show for beginners or experts!

As an amateur flipper since I was in my teens, I kind of have gotten pretty good at identifying great opportunities and taking advantage of them. But, Lex dives much deeper and gives actionable tips on how to make sure you are looking at everthing before making any decisions. I'm hooked!

Be Prepared to Learn!

Two words: Information Dense. Sweet Moses. I’ve listened to other real estate investing podcasts but this by far is the most practical, the most hands-on podcast I have heard to date. You can tell that the host, Lex, is very passionate about real estate investing. That passion with his experience translates into an excellent podcast. He shares theory about a topic and then tells a story about his experiences in the real world. That to me is gold!
