I am ready to start flipping in Houston however cautious about my first purchase and hesitant about pulling the trigger.
I receive properties from wholesalers and I also do research on har.com, however, I cannot decide if to go with properties from MLS or to go with wholesalers.
MLS, from what I understand, might/would mean to pay more because of the fees involved, on the other hand with wholesalers what I find is that either the repair costs or ARV are unrealistic.
To the experts out there, what would be your advice?
I guess I just want to play safely on my first deal even if it means not making a lot of money.
What are the differences in numbers from the MLS and wholesalers? Who's bringing the better deals?
