What is the best way to find your first deal? wholesaler?

5 Replies


I am new to the game here, I am wondering what you all think the best way to find my first deal would be? From what I have been reading, there are plenty of ways to go out and find deals. I realize maybe a wholesaler would be getting their fee on a deal, but do you all think that is the quickest easiest way to find a deal? I would be a cash buyer for my first couple of deals. Any insight would be helpful! Thank you in advance! 


It depends if you are flipping or buying and holding. If flipping a wholesaler might be okay, if you are buying and holding you might want to look on MLS for your first property. It will not mathematically be the best properties but will offer a bit more protection in terms of having contingencies and inspections etc.
