Wholesaling refers to a type of real estate transaction. Investors purchase properties at discounted prices and sell to another buyer for profit. Wholesaling is sometimes referred to as house flipping. When wholesalers flip houses they sell them in as-is condition and do not invest any money to rehab the property.

Wholesaling real estate can be a profitable business as long as investors have a solid team of realty professionals. Let's face it. The real estate market is a mess. Millions of Americans have lost their homes to foreclosure. Banks have engaged in short sales and have thousands of vacant properties in their portfolios. Neighborhoods are suffering the effects by paying higher homeowner association fees, property taxes and utilities.

Real Estate Clubs

Real estate clubs gather real estate investors who want to learn and network. Real estate clubs are usually started by real estate agents or others who are trying to get your business and your money. That doesn't necessarily mean real estate clubs aren't worth your time. Keep in mind the motives of club organizers before you go.

Real estate clubs have grown in popularity due to the increase of home investors interested in making money by flipping houses. Increasing real estate clubs are both a blessing and a curse. More real estate clubs allow investors to find convenient meetings near their homes or target market areas. They present more opportunities to network with other serious investors to possibly form profitable partnerships. The downside is some creators of real estate clubs are only looking to produce a quick buck by selling you their products, but offering nothing in return.

Fail Out of Bankruptcy

The term, 'fail out of bankruptcy' refers to the debtor's inability to adhere to their bankruptcy repayment plan. Personal bankruptcy includes Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. With Chapter 7, outstanding debts are discharged, while Chapter 13 allows debtors to reorganize their debt and repay it over an extended period of time.

One missed payment can cause a debtor to fail out of bankruptcy. When this occurs, creditors are allowed to petition the bankruptcy court and request dismissal. In most cases, the judge will allow the debtor to explain why they missed their payments. However, if the bankruptcy is dismissed creditors can commence with collection proceedings

Selling House for Cash

Selling house for cash is a term used by real estate investors who purchase distressed properties with cash instead of traditional financing. Unfortunately, banks are suffering from credit constipation; making it increasingly difficult for buyers to qualify for mortgage loans. For many buyers, the only way they can purchase a home is if they have a wad of cash in hand.

Selling house for cash can expedite the transaction because the buyer does not have to obtain pre-qualification from the bank. There are no stacks of finance papers to sign and no unexpected setbacks. In many cases, buyers can take possession of the property in weeks instead of months.
