How I Find Excellent Under Market Deals in San Antonio Wholesale Property

Some of the under market value property investors I work with think that finding wholesale property in San Antonio is difficult. I do not agree. I have been a San Antonio wholesaler of investment properties for 15 years, and I never have a problem finding excellent below market value investment property in San Antonio because I am a well known cash buyer of investment property here.

To find the best wholesale deals in San Antonio, you need to work with an expert who is well connected and experienced in this marketplace. Most beginner wholesalers will try to buy under market value houses at auctions. The problem with this is that everyone and their mother goes to property auctions to find a cheap San Antonio investment property.

By the time all of the other under market value wholesalers are done bidding, the price of the house usually is above market value.

It is very difficult to make a profit on a San Antonio wholesale deal that is at market value.

That is why the smart investor works with an expert in wholesale properties in the Alamo City.

I have been buying and selling investment property here since 2001, and I have a huge network of agents and investors. I also have two other wholesale companies that work for me. They are able to find wholesale properties in San Antonio for me. I also buy many investment properties here through estate sales.

I am an expert at negotiating a low price for myself and/or my investors. Most of the houses I buy are at least 30% under market value as of February 2016.

Below is an excellent 2 for 1 investment property deal that I got through an estate sale in San Antonio. Good luck finding a deal like this at an auction.

Out of state investment property investors, this San Antonio investment property has two houses on one lot and has needs only $10,000 in rehab before you owner finance it for $5000 down, $900 per month.

Note that this San Antonio investment property has two houses and is very easy to sell, given the extended families of most of our buyers.

A $25,000 ‘Junk House’ Case Study – 15% ROI for Out of State Investor

I have made my real estate investing career in buying and selling under market value properties in San Antonio TX.

I like to lovingly refer to my properties as ‘junk houses.’ I love that most investors see them as ‘junk’ and run away from them. I have made millions off of ‘junk houses’ that other investors are scared of.

The smart investor just has to look beyond the exterior ugliness and see the potential of the house and the neighborhood.

I just had yet another under market value success story I wanted to share with you. My out of state investment property investor bought this ‘junk’ house for $25,000 in November:


It had sat empty for years and was part of an estate sale. Now this house was ugly, no question about it. But it is located in an up and coming neighborhood in 78207, where the city of San Antonio has spent millions of dollars putting in running trails, parks, shopping plazas, green space and so on. This ‘junk’ house is only 2 miles from downtown and all the tourist attractions of the city.

Yet this under market value house sat for months and no investor wanted it. I grabbed it and quickly resold it to an out of state investment property investor.

Right next door to this ‘junk’ house were these owner occupied homes:

tampico-6-300x169 tampico-5-300x169

Those houses right next door are worth more than $100,000, but no one wants my under market value ‘junk’ house because it’s temporarily ugly:


The conventional investor wanting real estate cash flow cannot see past the ugliness, but I saw the potential here because of the neighborhood revitalization and the nice houses around it.

So, I sold this house for $25,000 to an out of state investment property investor who did $27,000 in rehab (which I did for him in 30 days), which included:

  • Electrical update
  • New flooring (float new floor over that minor foundation issue after it’s repaired)
  • Clean out
  • Update bath and kitchen with tile and granite
  • New light fixtures
  • Paint in and out
  • Finish second bedroom

Note that I own a construction company, and my rehabs are typically 2/3 of the price of most companies’ rehabs.

Note that this is a seller financed property, not a rental property.

Below are the after rehab pics of this San Antonio investment property:

The ARV on this below market value property is $79,900. We just finished the rehab in the middle of January 2016. And, by early February, we already had an owner finance buyer for it: $5000 down, $800 per month, $79,000 final price, 10% interest, 30 year note.

The house was on the market for less than a month. So on a $52,000 investment, the out of state property investor will earn about 15% ROI with no more repairs because we owner financed the house.

This is the kind of under market value investing I do – I buy ‘junk’ houses that other investors reject and turn them into little gold mines.

Most of my investors wanting real estate cash flow usually buy Seattle investment property California investment property, San Diego investment property, Los Angeles investment property,  or San Francisco investment property, and are shocked at the type of returns you can get here in San Antonio TX with San Antonio investment property – with no repairs!

Looking for Real Estate Cash Flow in Under Market Value Property in Seattle? Good Luck!

Many home buyers and under market value property investors in the Seattle WA area have been looking for the last couple of years for affordable homes not too far away from downtown. But Seattle real estate is out of reach for many investors.

I have been reading that it is very tough going. According to Redfin’s Real Time Housing Market Tracker, it is very difficult to find under market value investment property in and around Seattle. In fact, you will have a hard time buying anything under market value within 50 miles of the city.

Redfin reported last year that Seattle actually pulled even with housing-starved San Francisco for the first time in history. Also, Seattle was reported to have the lowest home inventory ever, making it hard to find affordable Seattle investment property.

The nationwide view for housing generally was better in 2015, with prices going up an average of 10% overall. Only 18% of houses were sold above market value around the US.

But in Seattle….ouch. Last March, the median sales price in Seattle was $380,000. This was an 11% rise from the year before. The Seattle cash buyer does not know where to go for cash flow!

If you are an under market property Seattle investor, you are going to have a very difficult time producing passive cash flow a Seattle investment property.

Welcome To Texas, New Seattle Out of State Investment Property Investors!

I sold this ‘junk’ house for $25k, rehabbed it for 27k, and resold it for a 12% ROI for the investor in just one month. It sold for $89,900.

This year, I have actually picked up two near out of state property investors from the Seattle area looking for real estate cash flow. As it turns out, both of them were having an impossible time finding affordable properties that could generate  cash flow.

As is often the case, these out of state investors have good jobs that make them $200,000 or more per year, but they must work 50 hours or more per week, and travel for 1/4 of the year or more. They want passive cash flow on below market value property, and that is what I do in San Antonio TX.

Usually, when a new investor comes in from out of state, such as California or Washington, I will put them into a nicer under market value property in a hot area. North of downtown San Antonio in 78201 is especially hot. Lots of young professionals are moving in there as it is so near downtown and all of the nightlife and tourist activities.

In many cases, I resell these below market value houses after rehab of 10-25k in days or weeks for 12%+ real estate cash flow. Here’s a great San Antonio investment property:
