Fix and Flip Nightmares: Turning a Disaster Into a Profit

  • Aug 14, 2013 · 4:30 PM
  • William's Street Renovation

About The Meetup

Anytime you buy a house to flip, you have some inherent risk including:

- Going Over Budget

- Housing Market Could Fall

- Buyer's Can Back out

- Inspection Problems, and much more.

All of these risks are factored into the price that an investor has to pay to make a profit.  All of this due diligence is a huge part of being profitable in the business.  On this particular project, however, something came up that was so unexpected that it was hardly anything more than a passing though.  Something so huge that it could have been disastrous, and I'm not talking about a ten or twenty thousand dollar issue here .   At this Meetup, Tom will discuss:



1.  What happened that was so unexpected

2.  How Ocean City dealt with it

3.  The lessons that we learned from the experience

4.  And finally, how you can use our lessons so that you never have to be in a similar position.

Tom is a principle of Ocean City Development and is head of acquisitions. Tom has been on the front lines of Ocean City Development's team, and has acquired over 23 properties to fix and flip over the past 6 months.


Location: This Boston-North Meetup will be held at 118 Williams Street in Malden, MA. This is an open invitation, and all that we ask is that you rsvp on our page prior to the event.

Environment: We will have an informal environment with food and refreshments. We are keeping this  event informal so that members can get to know one another and so that we can determine the structure going forward. Suggestions for future structure of the meeting going forward are appreciated.

Time and Structure of Event: the event starts at 4:30pm, but feel free to come anywhere between 4:30- 6:45pm. You will be able to go in and out at your convenience.

Future Plans: We will most likely add local speakers with experience in the Boston/North local. There will never be any multi-level marketing or programs/selling to members of any sort. There will never be any fees or dues.

Attendees: typical attendees usually consist of other real estate investors, wholesalers, hard money lenders and brokers, real estate agents, real estate attorney's, contractors and anyone looking to get into the real estate business.

    It was interesting to hear the story of this particular property - including the near catastrophe when it had a fire etc.
