How much can I make rehabbing homes?
There are many different approaches. Are you in a high tax bracket and want appreciation, taxed and withdrawn at a future date (like retirement) and wish to accumulate rentals? Or, are you in a low tax bracket/ want maximum returns now/ hence ‘Flips’ make more sense? Looking at our charts, you’ll see cheaper homes are better suited for rentals, but all properties are usually better suited for ‘flipping’.
‘Flipping’ homes is not for the faint of heart, nor for a novice. The TV shows are for entertainment – turn them off. I’ve never watched even 1 episode and I’ve ‘flipped’ houses since 1981. Yes, I’ll be glad to share my entire portfolio results to date with you.
The vast majority of folks loose money on rehabs, making lots of cash for ‘wholesalers’. So how do I know when to use a professional ‘Portfolio Broker’ Mentor? (that would be us). Perhaps when said mentor has a track record going back to 1980 and will say “NO” more often then “MAYBE” OR “YES”.
Prefer ‘hands off’ approach? We ‘joint venture’ with clients – you bring $’s, I bring expertise, your principle comes out first, we split the balance at closing. (there is a formal agreement letter but that’s the short version).
For every property I recommend, There are about 25 that I tell the investor “NO” and then tell them why. I want this to be educational as well as profitable for you – it helps us both!
