For me, RE investing is like a juggling act in that I will find myself either looking for deals, money or labor(or a combination). Most investors that I know find themselves in similar situations. Sometimes one may be “deal heavy” and logistically not able to coordinate an additional project. Usually they will wholesale flip these deals to other investors. No “player” is going to care what the investor/seller makes in the deal if it “pencils” for the investor/buyer. Further, the goal is to flip quickly, real investors can write a check - wannabes need to consult their pets, or something. Houses are just inventory after all. A real “investor” is not going to sabotage your deal if they want to do business with you again, besides that would be treading on dangerous ground. Know thy Buyer.
