When buying from a wholesaler, find the buying price that works for you. Don’t worry about the size of the assignment fee that the wholesaler is making. As long as the deal works for your numbers, and you close on the deal. The wholesaler will be eager to bring you business again and help make you a little wealthier.
Sometimes it may seem like the wholesaler makes a lot of money for taking none of the financial risk and without doing anything to the house (usually not even taking title). But, you have to take into consideration the marketing effort that goes into attracting the motivated sellers, and the time requirement to sift through all of the deals, inspect all the houses, and negotiate all the deals, just to find the few that provide significant profit for both parties.
