Real estate investing can be a challenging career to break into for two reasons: lack of capital and lack of experience.
Many people think that becoming a real estate wholesaler is an easy way to start an investing career in real estate, but that is far from the truth. Only the people who are willing to work incredibly hard, and go through the process of becoming an expert at finding and buying the best investment properties, will be successful as real estate wholesalers.
Real estate wholesalers do extensive research to discover discounted investment properties steeply, then either buy them or place them under contract, and then quickly sell them or reassign the properties to another real estate investor.
Oh my word, I feel this to my core! My partner and I started this recently because as licensed agents we were tired of fighting the masses on the MLS. So far it's been a great learning experience and we are gaining a ton of traction, but you are so right! it's so hard! Not only is it hard to find the properties - but the work to analyze, negotiate and get to market...holy smokes. It's hard but it's worth it. Great observation!
Now, if you find anything in the Chattanooga, TN area or the Orlando area (or an hour outside both locations) definitely remember me!
