40+ Questions To Answer Before Wholesaling Real Estate

Wholesaling real estate is a short-term business tactic often used by investors looking to make consistent and quick income in the housing market. In a wholesale real estate deal, the wholesaler agrees to purchase a home from a seller for a small earnest deposit. The wholesale contract details the amount the wholesaler is expected to sell their property and the required period for the sale to take place. After that contract is in effect, the wholesaler (the “Assigner”) is then free to find an interested investor and reassign the contract to them (the “Assignee” for an agreed-upon higher price than when they purchased the home. Wholesaling fees, which can vary greatly in amounts, all go to the Assigner upon the Assignee’s successful closing of the transaction.
