Real estate investing is a big draw for many due to its strong ROI potential as well as its flexibility in investment strategy. There are a lot of ways to make money in real estate without keeping your finger on the main pulse of the deal. This is most evident when it comes to wholesaling and assigning contracts. Buying and reselling interest in a property allows for increased earning potential. It also allows for expedited turnarounds on deals.
Assigning contracts allows investors to sell interest in the property title without being responsible for following the deal all the way through. Essentially, investors can buy and sell properties without ever having to lay hands on the property itself. While this definitely has it’s perks, it is not without risks.
President-elect of the Central Florida Real Estate Investors Association, Todd Hutcheson, joins us today to discuss his experience starting out in wholesaling and assigning contracts. Listeners will remember Todd from episode 111, in which he discussed how investors can get into real estate with limited cash. Todd is an investing mentor. He is the founder of IBuyHomes and an active wholesaler in Central Florida. As he shares in this episode of Landlord Tales, assigning contacts can quickly become a snowball effect and your control over a closing can disappear before you know it.
