ep 27 release

Today, Brian and John talk about their experience in "wholetailing". This strategy involves buying a property (typically with cash) and listing it on MLS almost instantly. Once Brian and John had the funds to make these kinds of deals, they found it made much more sense because of the abundance of exposure that MLS listings receive. The guys go into detail about why they prefer wholetailing and share stories from their top 3 properties that they have used this strategy on in 2018. They provide tips on making these deals and how you can get involved even if you don’t have enough cash up front.
