Real estate wholesaling is a business model in which Your real estate agent or company sells your property or home for profit by fixing their own selling price along with the selling price of the property which you set for selling.
In this concept, the property owner sets up a temporary profit sharing agreement with the real estate company or agent in which the agent or the real estate company will sell the property of the owner at his own price which is always higher than the price that the property owner wanted.
In most cases, real estate wholesaling comes into effect only when a property owner is distressed and is in dire need of immediate cash to solve some other problems. He only needs a minimum amount which he communicates with the real estate agent and then the real estate wholesaler makes a contract for this with the seller.
For example, if the seller wants a minimum of $100000, The wholesaler will sell the home for $150000 and take the remaining $50000 as profit.
This way of selling has a lot of benefits for the real estate company but it is not preferred by most of the buyers or sellers.
