if i send direct mail out an hour or two out is it worth driving there or are there ways i can still do wholesales without ever looking at it?
would it be solely about trusting the GC and i would negotiate over the phone prettty much?
Derek, research virtual wholesaling. Where there's a will there's a way. You'll have to develop some strong systems but it's possible. Alex Joungblood and Chris Chico are two big names in that arena, they have educational material on the subject.
I don't meet the sellers I buy from. I don't look at the properties I wholesale. It is all in the numbers. If the numbers make sense, your buyers will go see the property and close.
