Invest in Real Estate And Create Capital By Flipping A House For Cash

Dec 4, 2007
As you may hear more and more about investing in real estate the buying and holding method of gaining wealth with real estate is ideal. If you are just starting out, flipping a house may be an ideal way to get started as you will increase your opportunity for more capital to invest in real estate through the buy and hold method.

There are three ways that you can flip a house. Each one has its own advantages, disadvantages, motivation, and type of property. The first method is known as "Retailing." This is when you buy a house in bad shape, do the repairs to fix it up, then turn around and sell it. There tons of houses in need of repairs, and several ways that you can quickly flip a house to net profit. All you need to know are the techniques that will get you the most money in the least amount of time.

The second way you can make money by flipping a house is though "Wholesaling." Wholesaling involves finding a house for sale then flipping it to a real estate investor for a fast profit. In order to do this effectively, you need to network with and know the real estate investors in your area and the types of properties the real estate investors want to buy. If you live in a big area or a city, you will find that using the wholesaling method of flipping houses is actually easier to accomplish.

The third way to flip a house is by "Assigning the purchase." Using this method, you will sign a contract to purchase the house with "and/or assigns" after your name. Instead of closing the deal yourself, you will assign it to a real estate investor - for a small fee. The investor will take the contract over and close the purchase themselves. This can be very profitable, especially if you invest in the right home.

If you are looking to invest in real estate and create wealth, you will need to learn about flipping houses. Flipping houses is very profitable, especially once you have learned the basics. Finding homes that are in pre-foreclosure is a great lead source to find homes with sellers that want out.

Flipping houses can be profitable, especially as you learn which properties are best to flip and which properties are best to hold and gain long term wealth.
