Motivated Sellers and Why They Sell

On this podcast episode I am talking about motivated sellers and why they sell their house at a discount to market value. Motivated sellers are willing to exchange price for convenience, meaning that they would rather just sell and have the cash in hand now, than wait for a few months to see if they can get a higher price by selling with a realtor. Why would someone be willing to sell their house for less than full market value? There could be many answers. They may not know what full market value is. Their house could be damaged and they may not be able to live in the house. Or they may have inherited the property from their parents and live in another State and may need to get cash fast to pay off bills or other obligations. Or they may be in foreclosure and are about to lose their home and want to save their credit. There could be many reasons why someone is motivated to sell. This is why we call them motivated sellers. Remember this one thing: If you want to wholesale, or fix and flip or buy rentals at a discount to market value then only buy houses from people that HAVE to sell, not from people that WANT to sell. I learned that from my mentor. On this episode I talk about a house that I am purchasing and closing on today from a seller that absolutely needs to move to another State. This seller is purchasing a house in the new State and needs the proceeds from this sale in order to close on the purchase of the other house. This seller was willing to trade price (take less) for the convenience of a quick cash closing. That is the essence of buying from motivated sellers. And we delivered by buying their house. We stuck to our guns on what we were willing to pay. They could have said no. But they said yes. They got what they wanted (cash in hand fast). And we got what we wanted (a rental property at a discount).

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!
