How To Use The Wholesale Real Estate Forms…
The Wholesale Purchase Agreements are used to put a property under contract with the seller. Typically a wholesaler will assign the contract using one of the Wholesale Assignment Contracts for a specified assignment fee. Most investors are very aware that wholesalers make money assigning these real estate contracts and don’t have a problem paying the assignment fee as long as they’re buying at a price that they like.
If you feel your investor or buyer will take issue with the assignment fee amount you’ll want to arrange a double closing with your title company. Make sure you’re using a “wholesaler friendly” title company that is familiar with double closings.
If you’re unsure if you’ll be able to successfully sell a property because of price, condition, location or any other reason we suggest you use the Wholesale Real Estate Option to Purchase Contract. We use this agreement often and very successfully when we have doubts about a property. After we have viewed the property and we want to use the option agreement we’ll usually say “The property doesn’t meet our buying criteria but we often sell properties to other investors that purchase properties just like yours. If you like I can send the pictures and property information to them” (They have always said yes) “Great, tell me what’s the lowest you’ll take for the property as it sits if you can close within a couple weeks and the investor pays all your closing costs” Just fill out the option to purchase, have them sign it and start marketing the property to your buyers list!
Finally, sometimes you might have a property in an area you don’t have buyers, or buyers looking in an area you don’t have any properties and you’ll want to team up with another wholesaler, for that reason we’ve also provided a Wholesale JV Agreement above. Once you agree on the assignment split with the other wholesaler fill out the agreement, both of you sign it and personally send it to the title company handling the closing so there is no confusion and everyone gets paid!
