Newb Wholesaler in NC

6 Replies

Hello everyone, I just started looking into wholesaling about 2 weeks ago. I'm currently watching Max Maxwell videos on YouTube and a few others. What are some marketing strategies that I can use in order to be successful starting out? I've been calling people who posted FSBO on Zillow, and an absentee of owner list. I had a few decent responses, but no one truly motivated and of course a few that were angry or just hung the phone up. lol I've also been Driving for dollars, and I found a few houses I just can't get in contact with some of the owners. I'm located in the Fayetteville, NC area

I buy houses in Fayetteville.

You're in a tough market for sure. There are good deals right on the MLS, and the market is getting REALLY tight thanks to tons of new competition over the last ~3 years driving costs up.

that said, if you can find a deal then selling it should be ZERO problem. Lots of buyers around, and many of them will overpay LOL

good luck!
