How To Wholesale Real Estate - Understanding MAO Formula
Real Estate Wholesaling Is A Great Way To Make Fast Cash As A Real Estate Investor
Hey it's Cody Sperber (the swami of real estate investing) and I recently created another free training video to help you learn how to wholesale real estae. In this video I answer one of the most commonly asked questions a new real estate wholesaler has and that is, "How can I create an offer on a property that guarantees I can wholesale the property and still earn a good profit as a wholesaler"? Well, the answer is simple and it involves a small tweak into a real estate formula that has been around for a while now called the Maximum Allowable Offer Formula (MAO for short). The original formula looks like this: (ARV * Investor Discount) - Est. Repairs = MAO. As a real estate wholesaler you can make a small adjustment to the MAO formula to help ensure your profits are locked in. The wholesalers MAO formula looks like this: (ARV * Investor Discount) - Est. Repairs - Est. Closing Costs - Your Expected Profits As A Real Estate Wholesaler = MAO.

So as you can tell, this simple formula can be used to quickly create an offer to a motivated seller that guarantees you make your profit as a real estate wholesaler. Obviously the best approach to making an offer is to research the local market conditions, have a qualified contractor estimate repairs, comp and drive all the comparable Active, Pending, and Recently Sold properties near your subject property, as well as research all the comparable FSBO's. At the end of the day, since wholesaling real estate is all about control over a property, and since your only risk is your earnest deposit, most wholesalers simply use the MAO formula, lock up a deal, and market it to their cash buyers list to sell it for the most money they can.
