Hey, hey, hey! It’s “The Maestro” here, Andrew Massaro, back with another killer flip lesson.

So you already know about my mad wholesale coaching skills from those awesome previous lessons, and you know I’m an expert in quick flips and fast cash. You’ve listened to my training calls, and you’ve applied what you’ve learned to your own wholesaling businesses…

And PS, you rock…

But did you know that I’ve also got psychic powers…

Okay, okay…so I may not be all about reading palms and predicting your future, but I can tell you this: I’ve learned over the years that before you contract on a home, you’ve got to get inside the head of your cash buyer. More importantly, I’ve learned how to do just that without them even knowing it.

You Don’t Need a Crystal Ball to Know Your Buyer

Getting inside your buyers head...

Sound like a skill only for “the gifted,” “the special” or “the paranormal?”


Truth be told? It’s a skill we can actually all master.

You need to calculate how much cash your buyer is putting in your property. Know what kind of dollars are required for repairs taxes, and insurance. Remember, you don’t have to worry about a mortgage payment, because you’re only dealing with cash buyers, right?

Here’s a key question you’ll want to ask, again, before contracting...

What’s your property’s neighborhood like?

If “the hood” is busted, chances are your buyer is going to rehab the property and rent it out. If the neighborhood is decent, your buyer will most likely rehab and sell.

Makes sense, right?

Look, it’s all about knowing in advance what your buyer plans to do with their properties. That’s the magic bullet.

buyersNot only will this streamline the buying process, making life easier for everyone involved, but it will help you avoid contract cancellations, which are a waste of time and money. I despise contract cancellations! Seriously, I can’t say enough bad things about them… but knowing what your buyers plan to do before they do it will alleviate the strain and stress of last-minute contract cancellations.

Once you have the 411 and you know what kind of property you’re dealing with, you can easily calculate cash buy, plus repairs, plus taxes and insurance, minus rent revenue, plus minor repairs or updates throughout the year.

Then... and only then... can you know with confidence that the property is a good buy for HIM... not for you. If it’s go time, contract on it and present it to your buyers along with the expected annual profit.

One More Quick Tip

So you’re ready to read the minds of your cash buyers, but what if you simply can’t find cash buyers?

It happens, people. Not often, but it happens. And I want you to be proactive and prepared.

There is only one type of market where wholesaling is not viable, and that’s in markets without cash buyers.

Duh, I already said that. (I’m just seeing if you’re paying attention.)

If you’re looking in uber rural areas, you might find patches without cash buyers. Rule of thumb – if you exhaust all resources to find cash buyers it may be a good indicator that the area you’re fishing in is too rural.

So what?

So find another pond to fish in.

Until next time....peace and love.
