Wholesaling has a mixed reputation among real estate professionals, with some viewing it as a low-risk way to get started as an investor and others likening it to posing as a real estate agent without a license.  Regardless of what your opinion is on this sometimes contentious topic, it often makes sense to buy from wholesalers and, if you do, there are a couple of things to keep in mind that we would like to share with you in this episode!

In today’s episode of Collecting Keys, we’re going all the way back to the very basics of wholesaling a property. What is wholesaling? How do you buy something from a wholesaler?
