Topic: How to Evaluate a Flip Deal, (and Get It Right).

Sometimes a deal isn’t as good as we initially think it is. Rough figures, formulas, and doing the math in our head, all can be a big mistake. You may be wondering if people actually get into a deal without understanding all of the known and potential costs. That’s an easy one to answer; yes, they do! And most of the time they are surprised when they see where they went wrong. “You don’t know what you don’t know”.

Almost every day I am asked “Hey Mike, are you interested in this deal”? Or, “can you lend on this deal”? Or, “will you look over this deal”? I love what I do, so this is good stuff for me. I see plenty of good to great deals, and many that would lose, or make very little, money.

What do you need to know to make sure your deal is a winner?

  • Reasonable expectations for the renovation.
  • Accurate estimation of the resale value.
  • Due diligence costs.
  • Attorney fees and settlement costs.
  • Taxes and insurances.
  • Carrying costs.
  • Resale costs.
  • Loan costs.

Join us for a valuable discussion on all related costs, so you will understand how to make sure your deal is a winner. Aside from learning how to properly calculate a deal, you get to hear from local investors with tips and ideas on how they approach each cost or calculation.

PLUS: If you are borrowing money to purchase and renovate, this meeting will give you the information you’ll need to get your deals funded.

This meeting is a big deal. Don’t miss it!
