Reverse Wholesaling | An Unorthodox Take On A Popular Field

Reverse Wholesaling is an innovative way to approach the wholesaling business.

Essentially, the process entails you, as a wholesaler, finding a property and putting it under contract. Then, you will find a buyer and sell the contract to him or her. The buyer closes in your place and you do not have to spend a dime. Additionally, you do not have to worry about the rehab and all of the costs and troubles that are included with it. Instead, it is the investor who you sell to that will usually do the rehab. You are given a sort of finder’s fee for locating a good property for the buyer to invest in.

As long as you can find a buyer, you should be in good shape.

But what if I can’t find a buyer?

Finding an investor to buy your property is often the trickiest part of the process. Each buyer has his own needs and demands. Some buyers don’t have a lot of money so they’ll only want to work with smaller properties.

If you are not able to find a buyer in time, you will have to close and buy the property yourself. That means, if you don’t have enough money to buy it, you could run into trouble.

Luckily, there is a way to avoid this problem. The process is called “reverse wholesaling”, and it’s a fairly simple idea.
