When it comes to flipping houses, Flip University co-founder Michael Owen knows his stuff! In this video blog, he gives very useful free tips and advice on how to invest in and capitalize on your flip properties.
It is very important to know your numbers and local real estate market factors. Your research begins well before the foreclosure auctions. You need to have scoped out the properties you are interested in, and have done the math on the numbers including the bank value (minimum bid), square footage, cost per square foot, budget for anticipated repairs, comparative market values, and the after-repair value. This will help you decide on the top dollar you should pay for a given property.
Be disciplined at the auction. Do not let yourself get involved in the heat of the auction. Do not bid above your researched top dollar value for the property. Emotions and ego do not pay the bills -- disciplined research will help you avoid buyer's remorse.
Once your flip property is ready to be sold, you have to be smart about your listing price. Opinions vary on this, but Michael recommends listing at or just below market value. A refurbished home that is listed a few thousand below comparables in the area is bound to attract attention and lead to a quicker sale.
