5. Sell Property to Investor

5.1. Mark the property up your desired "Wholesale Fee"

5.1.1. Remember you a selling your "Contract" to purchase so you are really marketing up your contracted purchase price....

5.2. We recommend you shoot for 4-6k profit so you have to mark them up 5-7k as investors will negotiate you down.

5.3. Once you have a buyer you can assign your contract to the end buyer or double close it.

6. Close the deal

6.1. Assignment

6.1.1. The title company will handle the title work and the closing. This usually takes a minimum of 4-6 days, sometimes as long as 10-15 days.

6.1.2. Deliver the original purchase and sale agreement (A-B) to your title company and open escrow.

6.1.3. Deliver the assignment agreement to your title company.

6.1.4. Collect your assignment fee! You do not even need to go to the closing.

6.2. Double Closing

6.2.1. Same as above but you actually buy the house from the seller and then turn around and sell it to your cash buyer. You do this to HIDE what you are making and/or keep the buyer from meeting the sellers among other reasons.

6.2.1.1. Depending on your state you might not even need any money to do this. (this is called a same day double close - DRY FUNDING)

6.2.1.2. In some states this might require Transactional Funding or Gap Funding.

6.2.2. Deliver the original purchase and sale agreement (A-B) to your title company and open escrow.

6.2.3. Deliver the B-C Purchase Agreement to your title company as well and set closing for same day as A-B contract.

6.2.4. Close the deal and get paid!
