Dave Clabeaux – How the Rehab Was Progressing

Yesterday I went to check on one of my properties to see how the rehab was progressing.

My contractor was painting the ceiling with a spray gun.

We talked for about 20 minutes about progress, next steps, and then I headed home.

FYI I love 20 minute work days ; )

Some days are of course longer, but this is pretty typical once a project is underway.

When I got home, my wife started laughing at me.  Apparently some of the mist from the spray gun had drifted my way.

I now have small white speckles of paint on my blue North Face jacket and my black  Ray Ban sunglasses.  Pretty dumb mistake ; )

So my tip to you for the day is to make sure you wear clothes that can get dirty or stained  whenever you stop by your rehab project.

Don’t make the same dumb mistake I did ; )

 

 

Dave Clabeaux – 2017 Increadible Year for House Flipping

2017 has been another incredible year for house flipping, and 2018  is shaping up to be another outstanding year.

For example, take a look at this incredible deal that just came on the market:

324 E 42nd St, Covington, KY 41015.  1
bed, 1 bath, 1040 sq ft.

Since this is a smaller house, the rehab cost will be much lower.

Let’s look at the numbers:

Purchase price: $8,500

Rehab and all costs: $29,000

Sell it fast price: $69,000

Total potential profit: $31,500

That’s a great return on such a small, inexpensive flip. If I didn’t already have my contractor working on multiple projects, I would buy this house in a heart beat!

But that’s just it: there is literally so much opportunity out there that you have to walk away from great deals like this.

What are you waiting for?  Take advantage of the opportunity right in front of you and flip your first house!
