What You Need To Know About Flipping And Selling A Home.

by Randy Gridley

It takes a lot of money to flip and sell homes. The reason is that in most cases the investor will have to use cash money from their own pocket to finance the purchase and the repairs of the home. The time and expense involved in repairing and remodeling the home can be substantial. Typically, new would be flippers lack the experience to know what to look for. At this time, many of the homes that are available for sale that would be suitable for flipping are short sales which means they are held by the bank and have been foreclosed on. These homes often require a great deal of repair and rehab before they can be ready for selling on the open market. So even though the purchase price was cheap, the end price can be high.

Plumbing is an area that can be very costly. If the pipes are beyond easy repair, the cost to replace them can be considerable. In most cases it is not a wise investment to buy something that needs pipes replaced. If a home has copper pipes it is better than one that has steel. These type of pipes are simply better for plumbing as they will last longer.

The foundation is another thing that is important to have in reasonable condition or the cost of repair can be substantial. When you are considering a home to purchase for flipping, have a home inspector evaluate the home and tell you in particularly the condition of the plumbing and foundation.

When you begin your search you will need to investigate the going prices for homes in the area you are looking at. Someone who invest successfully must never over pay for a home. You do not want to ever make an emotional purchase. This is an investment and you should look at it only in regards to its potential for profit.

You will need to have or develop the ability to be a good negotiator. The only way to make flipping work is to get the home for the best possible price. This means you must possess the skills to get the price of purchase down to something that even after repair, you can profit from. You should try to fully capitalize on all homes in the area where a profit is possible.

You will want to develop a relationship with a minimum of 2 contractors that are dependable and will do the work for a reasonable price. If you can build relationships with people that can do the work you need and they will do it right and for a price that leaves you a profit, then these are valuable relationships to have as a real estate flipper.

Once the fixing up is completed and the property is ready for sell, the last thing you will need to do is to market it so that it sells as quickly as possible. Time is money and marketing is how you get it sold quickly. Post ads online, tell everyone in the area about the home being for sale and make flyers. You should have the appearance looking its best. People judge a book by its cover, so make the homes outward appearance appealing.
