Real Estate Agent Vs Real Estate Lawyer – What Happens During Real Estate Closings? Here Are A Few Tips On Closing Real Estate As a Wholesaler… Hi, this is Frank Chen with, the only site you need as a real estate investor. Today I’ve got quick video on how a typical wholesale closing works. The first thing you have to do is find is a title company: Title company, closing agent/attorney – Quick – avg 3 business days – Attorney – look over title work, cleared Types of Closings – (money usually sits in closing escrow) – Simultaneous closing (aka. double closing, back to back closing) – using buyer funds to close, buyer shows up first (morning), purpose of this close is to obtain cash at closing. – Transactional – using short term third party funds to close – Find the buyer (C of transaction) to repay the third party. Location – prefer using your closing agent for all real estate closings – ease of paperwork – saves time, energy and money – closing agent that understands wholesaling deals – back to back closings, double closings – make sure the seller and buyer show up at different times (morning vs afternoon) Closing Costs – negotiable – Wire fees – Attorney fees – Tax Service Fee – Title Insurance – Title Examination Fee – Deed Preparation – Etc… – although two closings – A to B to C closing – should not have to pay two full sets of fees – be more flexible with seller side – buyers are more flexible with you Seller Closing – comes in afternoon to sign docs – seller does not need to know profit margin for wholesaler – draft a separate settlement statement Buyer Closing – prefer buyer closes first (morning) so can use their funds – separate settlement statement Getting Paid – wholesaler gets check for net difference between two transactions Real Estate closings are generally pretty straight forward for Real Estate Investors. Your main objective as a wholesaler is to make sure that the A and C side of the transaction go smoothly, and that all parties are happy; more your buyer than the seller. This may require your title company to creatively structure the paperwork, to you, creatively negotiating the deal. Just remember, never throw away a deal for a few dollars, eat the cost, make your money and get out.

Learn how to build an automated, sustainable, profitable investing business with no down payments and no credit. Discover the most advanced automation software for investors available today at: Learn how it will bring you a flood of motivated seller financed leads every single day. Six Month Mentor Program: Read the Transcript: “It’s been awhile. I’ve got two questions. Do you have an attorney contact either where you live or one who’s familiar with laws in other states, particularly Minnesota? I just need some peace of mind that I can protect my real estate license and know that I have an attorney who’s got my back if anything were to come up. I’ve been told over that our Commerce Department hates lease options with a passion, especially if you’re licensed because now they have something to go after and make an example of. However, I haven’t given up what you teach. The biggest thing they don’t like is the fact that we’re making a good amount of money up front from people who will likely never exercise their option.” – Ryan Dybeck Joe: First, let me say you’re also making money as an agent from people who are selling their property up front before they make any money on it, so if you sell to another investor who has not made any money yet and you make a commission on that deal and you make more commission than he makes as a profit, have you done something wrong? – no, of course not. Joe: It’s the same situation here – what you’re doing is facilitating a sale, you’re making sure everybody understands what’s going on, you’re disclosing all the problems to them which is one of the things that we have in the lease option agreement that we have everybody sign, so everybody understands what’s going on in the transaction so you’re not going to have this kind of blowback with the commission. Joe: Also, it’s very legal for a real estate agent to sell a property on a lease option. It’s done every day, all over the country in every state, every city and all over the world actually, so you’re not going to have a problem with that. Now, if you have any questions about lease options and how to do them, then what I would do, if you’re a real estate broker, is call your real estate board’s online broker. Joe: There’s going to be somebody on every board that you can call up (ours is called the LESA hotline) and we can call that attorney up and we can ask them questions as a broker (I’m a broker as well). ‘Is it legal if I do this? What’s the best way to do this to protect everybody? Do you have any suggestions on this? Would you suggest that I do it a little bit differently? Is there … Continue reading
