South East Houston Flipping

2 Replies

Hi guys, We will be completing our first flip within the month and are ready to start looking for the next deal. This one just happened to be right down the road and kind of fell into my lap. I am curious what advise you guys have when dealing with wholesalers for the first. I am not in a position to pull the trigger within hours. My investor has a construction background, but has been out of the business for a while. He wants to stay overly conservative on the first few deals. And starting out stories are welcome! Thanks, Chris

Hi Chris,

Congrats on completing your first flip! I started my investing journey as a wholesaler, and now I'm a licensed Realtor. I would advise when you're working with wholesalers to make sure you do your own due diligence. Don't depend solely on their repair estimates, actually have your guy or yourself walk the property to get a solid number. Good luck to you! Feel free to send me a message if you'd like more insight!

Thanks Jessica! I have been watching from the sidelines for about 2 years now. I started looking up wholesalers in the beginning, but wasn't ready or in a position to make an informed decision. I decided to get my license which helped with the first deal, but now I want to expand the pipeline. While the MLS deals are there, I really want to find someone I can trust to send some off market deals my way. I have an partner/investor that is ready to pull the trigger whenever the right deal pops up!
