I am just getting into real estate investing and have read books on wholesaling, buy and hold, and flipping. It seems as though most residential investing falls into one of these three silos obviously excluding multi-family. It also seems most investors stick to one strategy and don’t usually do the other two. However it seems to me each one can dovetail to another. Is it possible to to be successful in all 3 phases of investing?
Hey Jason! Of course you can be successful in all 3 areas. It is common for people to invest in a wholesale for example, 5 or 6 times before trying a flip. Then they will try that 5 or 6 times before buy and hold. That's not to say that people become comfortable investing in a buy and hold, etc. People stick with what they know, so if they are good at at wholesaling, they will stick to it. Hopefully that answers your question a bit. Happy investing!
