Fix and Flip Loans

How to Make the Most Profit on a Fix and Flip Loan

Looking to get the most out of a fix and flip loan? Here are 4 ways to do just that. 

Basic Home Improvement Tasks

The hardest part about doing a fix and flip (and getting a fix and flip loan) is renovating the home without spending too much money. Learn how to do basic home improvement chores on your own, like painting, resurfacing, and door replacement.

Find the Right Contractors

Hire contractors to do the harder work, like plumbing or electrical work. And once your project is done, keep these contacts handy so you can hire them for future renovation projects.

Find Historic Homes

One of the most lucrative types of fix and flip projects is a historic home. All across America, there are thousands of homes from the 1880s through the turn of the century that have beautiful historic architecture but are very run down. If properly fixed up, these homes could dramatically increase in value and make you a substantial profit.

Speak to a professional before make the offer

There may be things that you don’t realize until after you make the offer regarding location and property type. Remote locations are much harder to finance, and multi-family over 4 units typically require a different financial source compared to 1 – 4 units.

Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)

As with any business venture, it’s understandable that you’d want to make sure this process is really worth the project time ahead of you.  Profit is something that you really need to do your homework on regarding the market value of the property you are buying, the cost of repairs and the value after.

One of the biggest mistakes with most first-time flippers is biting off more than they can chew. Remember to take it slow and learn from your first go-around. You’ll make mistakes along the way, there’s nothing wrong with that.
