Well there are creative real estate investors all around the country coming up will new techniques all the time. Most of these investors share their techniques with other investors that are willing to get outside the box. There are so many ways to make money and increase wealth with real estate.
Wholesaling is one the more common creative real estate strategies that is being used right now. With wholesaling you can make thousands of dollars in one "deal" ,as they are called by real estate investor. A wholesale deal is a deal in which a wholesaler gets the seller of a property(normally distressed) to accept a price(usually lower than the market value) and puts the property under contract, the wholesaler then sells the contract of the property to a buyer, usually another investor. In wholesaling, its all about getting the seller to accept the lowest possible offer they can, and selling the property to a buyer for as much as you possibly can.
Wholesaling is a great way to get started in real estate investing, but you shouldn't stop there. Once you have enough money, or if you already have the money, or if you don't have any money(or credit) at all. You must, I repeat MUST, buy real estate. This is one of the best ways to increase your monthly cash flow. Using technique's learned from wholesaling you will be able to buy properties for your personal portfolio at wholesale prices. The best part is, you don't even need money or credit. Using hard money, or private money loans you can financed any real estate deal you can find.
