In Your Plan for How to Make Money in Real Estate, Don’t Forget to Hire a Renovation Manager

  1. 1. In Your Plan for How to Make Money in Real Estate, Don’t Forget to Hire a Renovation Manager – Strategic Real Estate Coach Any plans you have for how to make money in real estate should include how you’ll work with a Renovation Manager. Here’s why this team member will soon become one of your ace players. If you’re trying to figure out how to make money in real estate, you’ll want to do some research on working with a Renovation Manager. This is a critical role to fill if your strategy includes flipping houses – meaning that you buy distressed properties, rehab them, and then sell them. That whole process is most profitable when it’s completed quickly. Serious real estate professionals are flipping anywhere from 5 to 15 properties a month, and sometimes more. The idea is to follow these three basic steps:
  2. 2. 1. Buy an inexpensive property (usually foreclosure or bank-owned) 2. Fix it up 3. Sell it Sounds easy, right? On paper, sure. But matters get complicated when they meet the real world. Each phase of this plan has its own challenges. You’ve got to buy the right properties. You’ve got to know how to sell them for top dollar. Between the buying and selling, you’ve got to do the rehabbing the smart way, too. If you’re not careful, you can spend too much money – or not enough – to rehab a property and end up losing your shirt. The Renovation Manager – Master of Time and Money It all boils down to two elements: time and money. You’ve got to spend enough money to get the property looking good, up to code, able to pass inspection, etc., but not spend so much that you end up losing money. And you’ve got to do all of this very quickly. The name of the game is to buy, fix, and flip in order to generate your profits and pay off your lenders, contractors and employees. So time is of the essence. Guess who’s in control of this time and money? You are so right – the Renovation Manager. He’s the guy who decides what needs to be done with the property in order to rehab and flip it as quickly and as profitably as possible. And he develops a budget and schedule to accomplish this. He manages the entire process, from initial demo to finishing touches. He hires the labor, evaluates bids, and even secures insurance. This Team Member’s Role is Key As you consider your strategies in deciding how to make money in real estate, don’t forget the role of Renovation Manager. This person is essential in evaluating a property, deciding what can be saved and what needs to be replaced, and setting up procedures to accomplish the rehab on time and on budget.
