Real estate newbies, you most likely have a giant array of questions swirling around in your head right now! Questions that just keep coming back around, and never getting answered. Getting the answers to these questions might be all you need to move forward with your plan to make this business a success for you.


After talking to thousands of real estate newbies over the past 2 decades, I’ve realized that most people get stuck on one of these 5 questions.  So I’m going to wrap everything up in one blog post here and get the answers that you need. 


Look no Further!  HELP IS HERE!!

With all of the information that’s out there, this is definitely a good question. I mean, people will send you off in so many directions with this. it’s NOT like the chicken and the egg. There’s only one correct answer.  START GENERATING MOTIVATED SELLER LEADS

There’s only a handful of “lists” that we market to as real estate wholesalers.I’ll list them in the next few seconds.  Just know this….NONE of these lists will work if you don’t execute a marketing plan (See question #1).   So here’s the lists that you can start with:

  • Probates
  • Divorces

  • Delinquent Property Taxes

  • Quit Claim Deeds

  • Code Violations


You’re not giving it enough time!  You’re venturing into a new business. It seems easy when you’re looking at it from the outside, but once you start digging in, you quickly discover that it’s a lot more work than people made it sound.  If you want to succeed at being a real estate wholesaler, then you just have to have faith that it will work, and keep doing it. Follow instructions and GET A MENTOR!

You can certainly work your ass off driving for dollars, knocking on doors, and making cold calls in order to find those motivated sellers that you need. But that’s not a sustainable business model.  In order to create a real business for yourself with NO MONEY to spare, then you must FULLY understand and accept that it’s going to be a slow process for you.  You will have to be patient, consistent, and diligent.  And when you do close your first couple of deals, scrape 50% off the top to put back into your business/marketing campaigns.


As much as you want to make. That’s the most beautiful thing about being in the real estate business. You create your own path.  By creating a business for yourself, you determine just how far you can take it.  The sky is the limit.

And there you have it. The top 5 questions that I get asked by real estate newbies along with my “what you NEED to hear” answers.


If you can get past the truth in these answers, then you’ll be able to move on to the next set of most popular questions that are asked.  But lets get past these first.


I want to see everyone succeed that starts their journey as a real estate wholesaler, but the truth is, only 5% will.  So be the 5% that makes it through the learning curve and frustration.  After that, the ride is smooth!
