Want to keep on enjoying the incredible perks of wholesaling real estate?

Here are six secrets of the super successful over the long run…

Deliver What You Say

If there is one thing that makes or breaks a real estate wholesaler, and the business, it is delivering not just value, but what is presented. You may not have done a full appraisal, or full inspection, but you should represent the product well. Just like you hate walking into a hotel with your family on vacation to find it is nothing like the pictures. Or the opposite can really wow you.

Invest Yourself in Making Your Buyers Successful

The same goes for your sellers too. People can tell if you are just trying to make a buck off of them, or you are really eager to help them succeed. Help them win, and they’ll be able to buy more deals from you.

Systems

To go big, and long in this business, you’ve got to have systems. Systems for sourcing deals, distributing inventory, and making the closings work as smoothly as possible.

Embrace New Technology

Not every investor loves to play around with every new device, or test out new tech in their business. Yet, if is one of the easy ways to keep getting noticed, stand out, be more efficient, and get an edge. That runs the gamut from new phones with better cameras, to funding option, methods of communicating, and lead generation software.

Build a Long Pipeline

Short term thinkers are always desperately looking to close a deal today, and to pay the bills this month (maybe even for last month). That’s an expensive way to do business, and has many pitfalls. The savviest also work on building their future pipeline. Don’t throw away leads, just because they aren’t ready to close yet. If you start nurturing a bulging database now, you can have 10 or more deals coming in every month on autopilot for the years ahead. Treat everyone well, drip market to them via email, Facebook, and mail.

Build Your Brand

Don’t just market at people either. Devote time and budget to grow your brand each month. Then people will come to you. Be proactive about protecting your reputation. Especially online. Roll out content that will keep in front of your customers for years.

7 Ways For Your End Buyers To Fund Deals In 2018

Successfully flipping real estate deals in 2018 relies a lot on finding end buyers with the financial means to purchase properties. The more that flippers and wholesalers can help prospective buyers find and connect with financing, the more deal volume to be done, and the faster they can be flipped.

Here are seven ways your flipper, rental property, and retail buyers can fund their purchases from you this year.

IRAs & 401ks

There is a lot more awareness of the ability to invest in real estate through self-directed retirement accounts today. Others still need to be turned on to the option. Though many more may begin to use these account options as the stock market continues to inflate and stocks become more expensive.

1031 Exchanges

Some US real estate markets appear to have matured, as have some individual investments. By using a 1031 exchange, investors can acquire your deals, while deferring tax liability on their gains.

Private Lending

Investor buyers without enough of their own cash and capital can find that individual private lenders are still the best option for financing. These lenders can be far more aggressive in terms and loan amounts, and are typically far faster and easier to work with.

Hard Money Loans

These loans are great for those who don’t want to deal with the hassles of conventional mortgage loans, or may be buying properties with repair needs that fall outside of conventional underwriting requirements.

Rehab Loans

Whether from investor specific lenders or the FHA 203k loan, there are great funding options for acquiring houses at a discount that need some repairs or updating.

Low Down Payment Loans

While investor loan LTVs have risen to 90% and even 100% in some cases, regular home buyers are also finding more and more low down payment options as well. This ranges from government loan programs like USDA and VA loans, to those offered by mortgage lenders like Flagstar which can be combined with local down payment assistance programs.

Seller Financing

Seller financing is still one of the best ways to ensure fast resales at maximum resale prices. That may be a low down payment large first mortgage, or carrying a second mortgage loan.

Setting & Achieving Your Wholesaling Goals

Real estate wholesaling isn't a hobby. If you treat it as such, you'll probably never achieve your real goals. However, when you treat wholesaling as a business and you set solid goals, you'll have the ability to achieve them.

When you're new to wholesaling, you have to set proper goals to keep you moving forward. Wholesaling is all about finding deals, but there's more to it. Here's a breakdown for setting your wholesaling goals.

Your First Month

As a newbie to wholesaling, it's best to get your feet wet right from the beginning. Find one to three neighborhoods you want to target and start finding some buyers. You don't have to have a list of hundreds or thousands of buyers in your first month. Just find 5-10 quality buyers and you will be well on your way.

Goals for your first month include:

Choose 1-3 neighborhoods to target

Find 5-10 potential buyers

Get the phone number and email for each potential buyer

Your Second Month

You've set the foundation and it's time to start reaching out to motivated sellers. This month, you will start marketing and finding deals.

Goals for your second month include:

Do market analysis and choose your target area

Pull lists from online sources or go driving for dollars to find potential sellers

Choose your marketing methods (direct mail, bandit signs, internet, etc.)

Set up all the necessary details for your marketing

Send out your first mailer, place your first bandit signs and start marketing online

Reaching $100,000 Per Year

If you’re not making this much yet, a good goal for a new wholesaler is to reach $100K per year in income. Then just 10x that to hit your $1M mark. Start with the first two months above and once you have your marketing in order and you're building a buyer's list, you can move on to an actual income goal.

The best way to set your income goal is to figure out the average you will make from a wholesale deal. Then, figure out how many deals you need to do. For example, if you average $10K per month, you only need to do 10 deals to reach $100K.

Once you know how many deals are necessary, it's just a numbers game. Figure out your marketing conversion rate and how many leads turn into deals. Then, just market enough to get the 10 deals you need to make $100K.

Many new wholesalers make it harder than it needs to be. Set up your foundation in the first two months by getting your marketing going and creating your buyer's list. Then, as the deals start to come in, keep track of the numbers. This will allow you to set and achieve your income goals as a new wholesaler.

7 Real Estate Wholesaling Marketing Channels To Embrace For 2017

Which marketing channels should real estate wholesalers be ramping up to dominate in 2017?

Along with funding for deals, marketing is vital for real estate investors. Get ahead of the competition in your marketing to sellers and buyers, and you’ll dominate the market and control the flow of deals and profits. So, which types of tactics and media do you want to be investing in to really get rocking and do more deals over the next couple months?

1. YouTube

Video marketing is definitely trending. More and more consumers are digesting video content, and this is only likely to continue as devices and internet speeds get better. It’s as close as you can get to in-person marketing on the web. Now is the time to set a video content production and publishing schedule, and make a new Year’s resolution to stick with it. Don’t allow quality to become and excuse to stall and not get started. You don’t need a bunch of fancy equipment. What’s really most important is being unique and authentic, and offering value.

2. Instagram

Instagram appears to have totally kicked Pinterest’s backside when it comes to getting results in real estate marketing. All investors and wholesalers should really be on Instagram. Again, come up with a plan for posting something daily, and make it a priority. Use hashtags, mentions of other handles, and location based posts to increase engagement. You can use video on Instagram, but the data suggests still images perform better.

3. Blogging

Text content is only becoming more important. The analysts, top investors, and big corporations are all in agreeance on that. You’ve got to be producing good content on a consistent basis. Just make it interesting and valuable. Avoid the urge to just churn out filler content. Choose quality over quantity.

4. Off-Site Content

Don’t just publish new content for your own real estate website either. Guest posting spots on other sites, in magazines, and in the news can all be powerful ways to hack lists and leads in bulk, while boosting your brand visibility.

5. Live Events

The entertainment industry is a $2T business. That dwarfs most other industries, including many real estate sectors. While our lives may have mostly gone digital, and perhaps because of it, people want to get out and experience things in the real world more than ever. So, host engaging open houses, educational meetups, and collaborate with other business partners on interesting events that get people out and allow you to interact in a warm way.

6. Direct mail

Direct mail is still an important part of the marketing mix. It can still work, and be profitable. However, rather than going cheap and broad, consider being more targeted, creative, and invest in quality pieces which will really stand out and get attention.

7. Mobile Apps

 

Mobile apps continue to be among the best ways to stay in front of customers and keep engagement and transactions up. Mobile friendly websites are a must, as is mobile search engine marketing. Yet, apps continue to take over and become very key native advertising and branding tools. It might cost you less than you think to develop your own app, or even brand and existing app and make it yours.
