Flipping for a Living- Reverse Engineer Your Flips

Naperville Public Library 95th Street Library

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- Naperville Sunday, March 24th- 2:00pm (Check-In / Networking starts at 1:30pm) Naperville Public Library 3015 Cedar Glade Drive, Naperville, IL 60564 Chicagoreia.org - Naperville is a subgroup of the largest Real Estate Investors Association in Chicago.

LIMITED SEATING AVAILABLE- Flipping Showdown- LIVE Join Rosario and Andrew for our first LIVE Deal Making Session. Actual deals will be reviewed and offers will be made in Real Time through ClickInvest! Andrew started flipping houses in 2008 when every other investor was running for the hills. Even though he was in the process of building a huge flipping business Andrew soon realized that investing in it's true sense was not just doing flips. It was buying properties and having your tenants pay them off for you. Since 2011 Andrew with his business partner has purchased over 160 properties that they now own in their rental portfolio. Majority of these properties have a loan to value ratio of less than 65% and all of them will be paid off in less than 10 years.

All deals include an ARV, Rehab Estimate and Suggested Offer Amount, and are vetted by analysts who have done more than 100,000 property valuations. Members can enter their individualized investment criteria into the system and then be matched with available properties fitting their investment objectives.
