rehabbing

The profits that a rehab project can bring in are most of the time much higher compared to other exit strategies like assignments and wholesale deals. With this higher profit comes higher risk and we don’t recommend diving into a heavy rehab project when you’re just starting out.

We’ve selected the top 13 shows over rehabbing that truly highlight the ins-and-outs of rehabbing. These experts are at the top of the game and they are must-watch episodes!

Heavy Rehabbing and Adding Space w/ Koko Kelejian

Koko Kelejian has evolved from minor rehabs to much heavier projects, including adding square footage and major rebuilds. This is a particularly interesting strategy in markets and neighborhoods where the dollar per square foot for homes is significantly more than the cost to add on new space.

Successfully Rehabbing Properties w/ Brian Meidam
Brian Meidam joins us on FlipNerd.com today to discuss his model for maximizing his profit when rehabbing houses, as well his operational approach to be able to execute multiple rehab projects at a time. If you’re new to rehabbing, you may be surprised to know that it’s actually pretty easy. That is, if you find good, honest contractors and build a systematic approach to the rehabbing and sales process. We also discuss the importance of pricing, and how a property that doesn’t sell within a couple weeks is an indication that you’re simply priced too high. Quality and price are the two main levers of success that rehabbers have. Check out this episode of the FlipNerd.com Flip Show to learn more.
