Flip That House
With all the information available to us via the internet, today's buyers are more savvy than ever! That being said, you need to be informed and educated before investing in real estate. If you expect to get full retail value for your flipped real estate property, it must be mechanically sound and look great! The floor plan should have a nice open flow and the kitchens and baths must be totally updated to retail grade, not rental grade. The house's exterior should reflect the updates on the interior with nice landscaping and eye-catching curb appeal. As a rule of thumb, be prepared to spend around 10% of your real estate flip budget for landscaping. If you're going to allot $20,000 on your renovations, plan on $2,000 of that going into landscaping. Keep it simple, green and clean! Given the same level of renovations on similar homes, the house with the landscaped yard will sell quickly; the other one will sit on the market. If you invest wisely and renovate wisely, you can expect a very good return on your real estate investment.
Everyone knows that the Charlotte real estate market remains strong, and is a great place to flip homes. But don't be afraid to flip when the market goes cold or flat. Markets don't dictate profits, deals dictate profits. If you know how to get good deals, you can flip in any market! The way to maximize profit on any real estate deal is on your way INTO the deal. Know how much you need to pay for a house in order to achieve your profit goals when you sell it. If the seller won't sell at the price you need for your desired profit, walk away. If you can get it at the price you need, buy it! You will never make money in real estate by sitting on your assets.
Assemble your team. Home flipping is a TEAM sport and the stronger your team is, the more successful you will be. First, you will need to find an experienced Real Estate Agent, one who knows the market and can help you spot good investment opportunities. Then you will need a banker who is familiar with the investment market, and is willing to work with you. Lastly, you will need skilled sub-contractors who will complete the project on time and within budget.
The Powell Team:
The Powell Team has extensive real estate experience, local market knowledge and established relationships with bankers and sub-contractors. We partner with investors, helping them to identify and purchase under-valued properties. Using CMAs, we will help you determine the price a house will likely sell for after renovation. And then we will help you work backword to determine how much you can afford to pay for a house, making your target ROI. If you are thinking about building wealth by investing in the real estate market, we will be happy to talk with you. You can visit our website for more information, and get started today.
For some time now, the real estate industry has been undergoing a technological revolution, which has enabled agents to work more productively and provide their clients with better service and information. As a residential property specialist, I have invested in and embrace this technology, and I will use it to provide you an unparalleled level of service. I've found, researched, and subscribed to the most effective real estate technology available, and I can pass its advantages along to you. Being a part of this enourmous network of real estate agents, I can make your home look more appealing than agents using inferior technology, and I can get your home noticed on the web. In modern markets, having a technological edge can make a dramatic bottom-line impact. I have that edge, and am looking forward to using it to your advantage.
