Making The Connection
If you decide on buying from a wholesaler, it's important that you choose the right one. Take a look at some of the wholesalers out there and what they can offer you. A property wholesaler should be a one-stop-shop, able to provide you with a great deal on an investment property, as well as the resources to help you become financially successful with it. Take a look at their research and what they can provide you with. A great wholesaler will be able to provide you with an ample amount of data for a property, helping you to make the right decision when it comes to buying.
Selecting Your Property
A wholesaler may have different properties available at any given time. Often, their available inventory changes regularly and will vary according to demand. When selecting the property you wish to buy, talk with the seller about what they have available vs. what you are after. If you don’t see a property of your liking available right away, odds are that your wholesaler will be able to find it for you. A professional wholesaler will specialize in finding the best deals at the best prices.
When working with a wholesaler, it is important that you are able to move quickly. A wholesaler will often work with many buyers, all of whom will usually have cash in hand, ready to close on a good deal at any given moment. When buying a house from a wholesaler, you can usually close on the property in only a few short days. The process of buying from a wholesaler will move much more quickly than a traditional sale would.
The Closing Process
The closing process isn’t much different than that of a traditional sale. A wholesaler will typically require you to have the proof of funds or at least be preapproved for a loan. Either way, expect to move quickly. You’ll need to do your homeworkr and view the property quickly in order to make an offer and close. The good properties will not be available for very long. Being prepared will ensure you are able to get in on the best deals.
When you work with a wholesaler you should be prepared for the costs of inspections, repairs, and any closing costs that come your way. In many cases, you will need to be able to close on the property right away as many wholesalers will prefer you to have the cash in hand, without having to deal with red-tape from a lender.
What You Need To Be Prepared For…
You need to be prepared to do your research quickly. You need to know where to look and what you are looking for. Inspect the property as much as you are able to and get your offer in right away. If your wholesaler is working with multiple buyers, a good deal isn’t going to stick around for long. You need to be prepared to close quickly, in most cases, the sooner the better.
