Newbie trying to figure out how to wholesale a property with taxes owed

1 Reply

I'm a newbie! I want to wholesale this property I found! It's vacant and it's an eye sore! The area is ok (below middle class but not exactly the slums either) . Anyway there are county and city taxes owed on the property ($7k)

How do I need to go about trying to get the peppery under contract and how would I set this contract up?!?!? And how would I market it to a seller?!??

Locate and attend 3 different local REIA club meetings great place to meet people gather resources and info. Here you will meet wholesalers who provide deals and all the cash buyers (rehabbers) you will need. Link with a wholesaler to get the deal done.
