Book on Flipping Houses Cover
Unless you are an experienced contractor, one of the most difficult tasks for a new house flipper is the process of estimating repairs. Without a doubt, most house flip failures are a direct result of underestimating the cost of repairs as well as the time frame required to complete them. To help you overcome this obstacle, as an added bonus to The Book on Flipping Houses, BiggerPockets and J Scott are giving away another book for FREE: The Book on Estimating Rehab Costs.
In The Book on Estimating Rehab Costs, J Scott pulls back the curtain on the flipping process and shows you not only the cost ranges and details associated with each and every aspect of the flip, but also the framework and methodology for estimating rehab costs.
You'll discover how to accurately estimate all the costs you are likely to face while flipping a home as well as what upgrade options you have to provide the biggest bang for your buck. Whether you are an experienced home renovation specialist or still trying to learn how to screw in a light bulb, this valuable resource will be your guide to staying on budget, managing contractor pricing, and ensuring a timely profit.
