Greg Helbeck is a real estate investor and the owner of Velocity House Buyers, a company that purchases off-market homes in the New York and Texas areas. The company prefers to buy houses that are considered “distressed” properties - homes that are currently in sticky situations such as foreclosure, probate, or quick sales. His strategy for finding homes is considered unorthodox, but it has enabled him to find his footing in the big world of real estate.
Greg joins me today to share what it’s like to work in a virtual real estate market. He shares his humble beginnings, his first and worst deals, and why he decided to take an unconventional route when it came to finding properties to purchase. He also discusses the various methods he uses in closing deals and how hiring a genealogist has impacted his business.
“The more hair on the deal, the more money you'll make.” – Greg Helbeck
