Real estate is a lucrative business model to get paid and make money passively. I have been around a lot of top earners who are making lots of money without being licensed realtors. It’s basically making money in real estate with no money.

Real estate wholesalers look for motivated homeowners with a property that’s vacant, distressed, or in a foreclosure situation then they negotiate a really low offer to these sellers in return for quick money. They use free tools to find homeowners’ information and give them a call. This literally takes no money and you can make 10k to 100k a month! 

After they have negotiated the price and signed a contract with the homeowner, they’ll find a cash buyer or investor to sell their deal to for a profit.
