Wholesaling Real Estate Part 2

On the previous podcast episode (Wholesaling Real Estate Part 1) I spoke about the three things that you need in order to wholesale a property which were: 1. having a property to flip 2. having a cash buyer to flip the house to 3. having the money to fund the flip On this podcast episode (part 2) I am following up on part 1 and digging deeper into the first item in the list above which is learning how to find a property and evaluate a property in order to have a house to flip to another investor. This is the essence of wholesaling. You can have the best web site and tons of leads but if you don’t know how to evaluate what a property is worth and how much you can flip it for then you will be constantly facing an uphill battle. In my opinion this is what happens to the majority of new wholesalers who focus on lead generation and websites before understanding the basic fundamentals. In order to flip a property to a cash investor, you will need to know what the house is worth retail, completely fixed up for sale to an end buyer. We call this After Repair Value or ARV. In order to establish ARV you need to have access to and know how to interpret the comparable sales. And then finally you would need to know what it would cost to fix the house up (this is called the repair estimate). To summarize, in order to make offers on properties you need to know: 1. After Repair Value (ARV) 2. Comparable Sales 3. Repair Estimates It is much more difficult to flip houses when you don’t know what it would cost to repair the house or have an accurate ARV. You need this information in order to be able to talk intelligently with other wholesalers and cash investors that are looking for wholesale deals. I always tell new investors that want to learn how to wholesale to focus on action steps that put money in their bank account. If you can learn how to identify a wholesale deal then the money will follow since finding cash buyers or the money to fund your flips is not the difficult part. The part that is most challenging for beginners to wholesaling is learning how to identify great deals, knowing which properties to make offers on and how much to offer.

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!
