Why are there no wholesale success stories (or very few)? Because that's where I'm starting, and I haven't found any on this forum! Are there not many people having success in wholesaling? or Probates? If so I'd love to hear their stories!
@Michaela Zanello that might be because what we do is not that noteworthy. I mean it is all about turning lots of deals for very little profit. I have just started this past year and am up to around 7 deals. My first one was the best to date where I split the proceeds 50/50 on $9,000.00. Nothing to write home about there but for the 2-3 hours of work that I put into making phone calls and sending emails-not too bad! I have plenty of stories if you want to look at my website Blog stuff this outlines a few of the deals I have done. But I leave out the dirty details on my site. I have a few posts and blogs here on biggerpockets so just check out my profile and you should be able to read every post I have written.
Good luck to you and reach out to me and say hi! I love to talk about this stuff!

I am not a wholesaler, but I have bought 4 SFRs through 3 different wholesalers. Assignment fees ranged from 4.5k to 11k on ARVs between 95-140. Listening to the podcasts, it seems the key is have a marketing strategy to get motivated sellers calling you and then learning how to understand and solve their house problems.
