WiscoREIA Kenosha: Learn To Increase Your ROI On Each Flip By 40-50% Or More!

Learn To Increase Your ROI On Each Flip By 40-50% Or More with FLOS$FLiPS™!

For the Fix-and-Flip Investor, the most predictable strategy to create increased profits up to 50% or greater is the FLOS$ Method.
The acronym for FLOSS stands for Fix, Lease Option, Sale, and Make More $.

Secrets uncovered with an in-depth look how this creative finance strategy makes for an exciting time for the Fix-and-Flip Investor and will increase your profits, year-after-year by reducing your taxable income and expenses while creating ongoing cash flow.

Advantages of the FLOS$ Method VS Fix-and-Flip!

  • Increase your Fix-And-Flip Profits Up to 50% or greater year-after-year (gain control of your business with predictable outcomes... pay significantly less to Uncle Sam, and eliminate payroll taxes)
  • Close on time and with short terms (Get top dollar for your home... increase the number of qualified buyers for your project)
  • You mitigate your losses when unplanned expenses (New, easy way to manage holding and selling expenses... Reduces expenses for commissions and fees)
  • No need for property managers and negligible repair and maintenance (Create ongoing monthly cash flow with lease purchase... reduce stress of typical landlord relationships with tenant-owners)
  • You can leverage your asset holdings (Increase your portfolio and net worth ... build equity in your business!)
