“Wholetailing” Strategy??? - Posted by Joe

My plan has been to find junkers (severe fixers at extreme discounts) to wholesale. However, I’ve been mostly coming across houses in fairly nice condition, which are maybe 10k to 25k under the market.
I know this is not enough for wholesaling, but should I try to put these under contract and then sell them EITHER to say retail buyers or various professioinal sorts of people looking for rental properties?
Say like if I buy a house worth $200k for $180,000 (not good enough for a wholesale deal) with the seller paying all of my closing costs, and then I aggressively market it to home seekers or landlords looking for a bargain? Say if I could make $5 or $10k after all costs on the deal?
I think someone called that “wholetailing” if I’m not mistaken, so I’m wondering if I could pick up a lot more properties which I would otherwise pass on, and make some modest profits, with planning on that sort of an exit strategy. Please advise.
