Investment Info:

Single-family residence wholesale investment in Cypress.

Purchase price: $145,000
Cash invested: $200
Sale price: $155,000

This is a whole sale deal that took 2-months with constant negotiation with seller.
Seller was not super motivated because the house is just 8-years old and need on $4,000 in repairs (Mainly carpet and few drywall replacement).
I had to walk-up my numbers to seller asking price of $145,000 and sold the property for $155,000. I paid my acquisition specialist 20% (in this case $2,000) and I gross $8,000

Great Assigned Schools

Cold calling and marketing

How did you finance this deal?

How did you add value to the deal?

Added value to my investors by bringing them a decent deal with a tenant that has been in the house for 8 years and willing to stay for another 6-years at least.
Great schools and desirable location on Cypress 77433.
Only $4,000 in repair needed.

What was the outcome?

Wholesale the deal (Assignment of contract) and gross $8,000 within 3-weeks on having the house under contract.
