🍑 What is “Wholesaling”? | Assignment vs. Double Closing | FHA 90, 180 Day Flipping Rules

Derek Varnadoe discusses the basics of real estate flipping and wholesaling (i.e., assignments, double closings). While most of us understand the basics of “flipping” and know it’s is a BIG problem for FHA buyers (unless at least 90 days have passed since the seller/investor closed), not as many of us understand the basics of “wholesaling” and the two main methods used by wholesalers to contract with a buyer.

Wholesaling/assignments are facing an increase in regulations across the country, and some states now require a real estate license to handle an assignment (market “equitable interest) and require specific disclosures when wholesaling/double closing. Many Georgia real estate brokers prohibit their agents from participating in these types of transactions, due to their predatory perception and increased risk to everyday home buyers and sellers.
