WiFi Thermostat - Installing a WOW Factor

Installing a Wow Factor -- Make Your Property Stand Out from the Crowd

Volume 2: Episode 5

Whether you are flipping an investment property, or using a property for rental income, one thing that helps your property stand out are simple little wow factors.

At Flip University, we talk about simple things like new light fixtures, cover plates, and a new coat of paint.  These little things make a place feel clean and new.

However, one of the current new trends is smart wifi thermostats.  There are a number of them on the market, and we do not recommend any unit in particular.  But people sure do seem to like them.  This trend goes along with wifi controlled switches and lights.  

Installing features like this in your investment property could very well make it stand out from similar properties.  Standing out makes it memorable -- which increases chances of offers!

In this week's video blog, we show you how to install a smart WiFi thermostat.  We've...

Photographs Attract Attention

You bought an investment property to flip.  You hired contractors to rip out the outdated kitchen and bathroom, and install beautiful new fixtures and floors, with a fresh coat of paint.

Why People Sell

WHY YOU NEED TO KNOW WHY PEOPLE SELL

You're a realtor, a real estate investor, or you flip houses for profit.  Whatever the case, you need to find houses to buy.  In some markets, the competition can be pretty stiff.  Have you ever considered why people sell their homes?  And perhaps more importantly, why some people are in a rush to sell their homes fast?

Knowing why people sell real estate can help you market to find people who want to sell, whom you can help, and make respectable profits!

If you know why people sell, you can target your marketing to those motivating factors and situations.  We want people who need to sell.  We want people who are behind on their bills.  We want people who are behind on their mortgage.  Quite often these people need to sell their house, as is, and fast.
