Key Takeaways:

“If you’re interested in getting in real estate, you start with wholesaling because it makes you the source of the deal. Like if you want to be in first position and find deals, and when you start a wholesaling business, that’s what it does. It gets you unlimited access to heavily discounted off market properties and motivated sellers. If I could do it all over again, that’s where I messed up. Starting a wholesaling business is the foundation. If you ain’t got that piece in, if you don’t know how to find deals, you’re dead in the water as a real estate investor.” – Chris Rood

“Every market reacts to different marketing channels. You got to split the test, measure, adapt and change to the different markets that you’re in.” – Chris Rood
