EP 10: Should You Do the Rehab Yourself?

In this episode, I talk about whether it makes more sense for a fix-and-flip real estate investor to do their own renovations, or to hire a general contractor

Should you do the rehab yourself?

  • Experienced investors do not do their own rehab.
  • Rehab is not where an investor’s time is best spent.
  • Investors need to generate leads and find money.
  • Hold time is always longer when the investor does rehab – holding costs will kill you!
  • If you are not a licensed builder, your work may not be to code.
  • Might have to do a city inspection- need permits.
  • Talk to experienced real estate investors and ask them if they do their own rehab.
