A common misconception in the real estate world is that you need to have years of savings to get your foot in the door. While that might be true in some realms, the real estate field has a lot of opportunity in a variety of fields. Some of which you can start in without much in savings at all.
My name is Jacques Poujade and as the Managing Partner at LendPlus, I have dedicated my professional life to helping others build their finances from the ground up. Here’s my take on wholesaling real estate. No money? No problem!
What is Wholesaling Real Estate?
Wholesaling real estate is when a wholesaler buys from a seller with the intent to resell it. From there, the wholeselling professional sells it to a buyer at a higher price. You can do this with or without renovations included. You might be thinking, how can I possibly do this without hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings? Well, that’s where I’m here to help.
Oftentimes, properties have motivated sellers that are simply interested in selling their property for the best rate, at the fastest rate. When this happens, it leaves room for a wholeseller to purchase this contract. Oftentimes, these are distressed properties that are prime for a flip. If you have the money saved to renovate, then doing so could be a great investment. If not, simply purchasing the contract could provide you with a great item to sell to other investors. If that’s the route that you choose to go, your next step it to sell the contract.
Assign (Flip) Contract to Another Investor
If you don’t want to flip a refinished house or don’t have the funds to renovate, selling your contract is a great option. With a simple agreement, you can turn the contract you’ve purchased over to another buyer at a higher rate. They take over the agreement using the money taken out of your pocket throughout the entire process, with several thousands of dollars placed in it! This is also a great opportunity to build a network and learn more about the real estate industry first hand!
Build Your Business
As with any business, it’s important to build your brand from the ground up. When you sell, even as a wholeseller, you’re building your reputation with buyers and other real estate professional. In doing so, you’re creating a great base for your network to build upon both financially and professionally. Are you looking for ways to learn more about finance?

One of the biggest keys to success is staying productive throughout the workday. If a person is focused and energized, they can get something done in a relatively short amount of time. This beats the alternative of constantly pausing things, dealing with distractions and letting tasks drag on.
Whenever a person first starts their journey in real estate, they dream of making it big. No matter how small a person starts out, there is always the opportunity to grow if the right effort is put into it.
