The Micro-Flipping Craze
If you’ve Googled anything to do with real estate lately, you’ve probably been inundated with ads for micro-flipping. Almost every podcast, email and social post out there is talking about the same micro-flipping stories.
It’s a great twist of phrase on a very old strategy. Some people have been doing extremely well at it for years. So, what is it? What are the pros and cons? Can you apply it to notes instead? If so, why should you?
What Is Micro-Flipping?
Micro-flipping is the new term for wholesaling real estate. Wholesaling means buying or contracting to buy a property, and then assigning your contract or flipping it as-is, without doing any rehab work. If you have a good buyers list and connections, or can do this effectively online, you can be in, out and paid fast. It’s a high volume sport.
This has been made a lot easier thanks to all the access to data and software and online platforms we have today.
This form of real estate investing is made to sound super easy. That may be luring in a lot of people who think it is a lot easier than it really is. Not everyone is going to get the results they were sold on. Some will find it the easiest and fastest money they’ve ever made.
The real con of this strategy is that everyone is being sold on trying it. At least tens of thousands of people are sold on using the same software, data and marketing to do this. So, what you get is a lot of people bidding on the same deals, trying to sell them to the same buyers, and engaging in long broker chains. You don’t make money when you are running with the herd.
