How to Rehab a Flip in 6 Simple Steps

Let’s get back to basics for a minute here – what is your game plan when you purchase a property to rehab and sell? Are you just a wholesaler and looking to get into the bigger profit deals? If you aren’t sure exactly where to start, here is our simple 6 steps that we follow with each property we flip.

  1. Demo
  2. Utilities & Mechanicals
  3. Repair & Prep
  4. Install
  5. Painting
  6. Finish & Detail

One super important way to follow these steps is sticking to your outlined plan that you created at the beginning and keeping a punch list of things you are working on. Following a schedule with your contractors is also key so you don’t have different groups working on top of each other.

 “55 Simple Strategies is a Goldmine…I went through it on a Buffer Day just to learn how much I really hadn’t considered in sourcing deals. Great stuff Josh!” – Bill Ziccardi, California

“Hi Josh, I just read your 55 Ways report and I am quite impressed, as well as excited at the possibilities. I felt as if I had found a gold mine of information! Excellent selling tool, because I feel that if you are giving that many resources away for free, the rest of your programs must have some outstanding value.” – Fr. Charles Butler, Missouri

Chat with Joe McCall of Real Estate Investing Mastery

In my latest episode of Strategic Real Estate Radio last week, I able to sit down with Joe McCall of the “Real Estate Mastery” podcast. Joe and I discuss one of my favorite topics, quick cash deals and investing virtually.

Joe McCall has a podcast on iTunes called “The Real Estate Investing Mastery” and also wrote a #1 Kindle book, “Making Extra Money Flipping Houses While on Vacation.” He has flipped over 100 houses and helped his students flip hundreds more. Joe is passionate about the “freedom lifestyle” and a location independent business where he can work anywhere in the world.

Joe’s story is probably a lot like yours – he started working a regular 9-5 to pay the bills, but then was able to develop a niche of investing in wholesaling lease options. He quickly found that his income from wholesaling lease options surpassed his 9-5 job and his full-time job was holding him back from the flexibility he was striving for.
