Flipping for a Living- Reverse Engineer Your Flips

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Libertyville - Mundelein

The TV shows make it look so easy. You buy an ugly house, fix it up in a week or two and then sell it for a whopping $100,000 profit. But as anyone who has ever tried it knows, house flipping is a lot harder than it looks. And often, the math doesn't add up to a sizable payday when you factor in the time, effort, labor and money to execute a flip. But that doesn't keep people from trying. Flippers face four key challenges: • Finding a good house at a low enough price to make the deal work • Finding reliable contractors to do quality work at a reasonable price • Finding money to finance the deal • Selling the home at a price that will cover expenses and provide enough profit to compensate for the time invested If location, location, location is the mantra for all real estate, “do the math, do the math, do the math” should be the mantra for would-be flippers. And we mean all the math. For example, if you calculate a potential flip this way: Buy a house for $100,000, spend $20,000 on improvements, sell it for $150,000 and earn $30,000 profit, you clearly haven’t done all the math that’s needed.REMINDER: ChicagoREIA.org- Mundelein Tuesday, April 23rd- 6:30pm (Check-In / Networking starts at 6:00pm) DoubleTree Libertyville / Mundelein 510 E.

Off Market Deal Domination

Barnett REI Finance

As the market becomes hot most investors are struggling to find deals. Off-Market Properties still remain the largest source of inventory. In the Chicago market there are over 30,000 pre-foreclosures that will end up either on MLS, Auctions, or bank owned REO properties. Most real estate investors including experienced investors have no idea of how to work the Pre-Foreclosures. Pre-Foreclosures are the single largest source of hidden deals at any given time. At the upcoming meeting we will breakdown how to mine for gold with Pre-Foreclosures. Pre-Foreclosures can be divided into two major categories • Properties listed in the MLS (5% of all Pre-Foreclosures) • Off market deals NOT in MLS (95% of all Pre-Foreclosures) Andrew will cover how to break down off market pre-foreclosure deals • Pre-Foreclosures with equity • Pre-Foreclosures 60 days or less from auction • Pre-Foreclosures without equity or commonly known as short sale This meeting will be packed full of tons of content and information that you can put to use immediately.
