Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions we get asked by Cash Buyers.
Why Is The Property "Pending" or "Contingent" Online?
Because the property is under contract to be purchased by us or our affiliates. The Ligon Group has a Massive home buying department that ensures we have consistent deals. We purchase hundreds of properties each year. We wholesale a portion of our inventory before we close as part of our business model.
Is This Your Direct Deal?
We only send out Authorized and Verified Deal Direct™ properties. This means that the deal originated in our office, through our affiliates or our partners. There are Never any daisy chain deals. The Ligon Group handles the entire process and you will only deal with our firm.
Can I Get a Discount on the Price?
The short answer is probably not. If you see a property on our list, it's already been negotiated with the deepest discount we could get. There is not a lot of spread on these deals, so the price we put it out at has very little negotiation room. We are experienced experts at getting great discounted properties and our inventory goes super fast. Our wholesaler deals are not like listed properties that sit on the market for weeks and months. We sell most of our deals super quick, so act fast.
How do you Have so Many Properties?
The Ligon Group is one of the largest Investments Firms in the South East United States. In order for us to fill our need for investment properties we developed a massive deal engine. This means we have an endless stream of inventory coming into our offices everyday. The properties that we don't buy we remarket as wholesale deals. In addition to our deals, we also have hundreds of students that provide us with even more Wholesale deals, so if you're looking for a one stop shop, look no further. We have ALL the Wholesale deals you'll ever need.
Can I have an Time to Inspect the Property?
All inspections must be performed prior to contacting. This means you must do whatever inspections you want to do before you make your offer. Wholesale properties are handled differently than conventional home sales. All offers must be provided with a Zero day inspection.
How do I make an Offer?
Our Wholesale properties go fast, so when you are ready to make an offer contact us ASAP. You must be 100% committed and ready to go in order to supply an offer. Our properties are in high demand and we honor a first come first serve sales protocol. Even if you provide us with a higher offer then the one we have, we will honor the first accepted offer we receive.
Can I Contact You About Properties That Are “NOT” on Your Lists?
A: Yes. We get asked this a lot from Buyers that prefer to deal with our Firm, because of our experience and trustworthy business practices. If you see a property that you are interested in anywhere, you can contact the Ligon Group to handle the deal for you. This will allows you to Contact ONE Company for All your Wholesaling needs.

This allows you to deal with “One” Company for All your Wholesaling Needs.
What is Wholesaling?
Simply put; Real Estate Wholesaling is the process of Flipping contractual interest in an Investment property to an End Buyer. Here's how to process works. A Wholesaler will find a property and negotiate a deeply discounted purchase price with the Seller. and provides and offer. When the Seller agrees with the offer they sign a purchase agreement for the Wholesaler to buy the property. Since the Wholesaler now has an executed Purchase and Sales agreement they can sell or "assign" that agreement to another Investor. The Investor that closes on the Deal is known as the "Cash Buyer" or "End Buyer". Here is an example of a Wholesale Transaction:
The Wholesaler negotiates a deep discount with the Seller and gets a property under contract for the purchase price of $100,000.
The Wholesaler then remarkets the property for $105,000 (still deeply discounted) and looks for an End Buyer.
The End Buyer sees the discounted property and agrees to purchase it at $105,000.
The Wholesaler then assigns the $100,000 contract to the End buyer making a $5,000 profit for brokering the deal.
Note: This is one simple example of a Wholesale assignment. There are other various ways to conduct a Wholesale transaction, double closings, joint vantures, etc...
