I’m thrilled to announce the release of two books I’ve been working on for much of the past year:
THE BOOK ON FLIPPING HOUSES:
How to Buy, Rehab, and Resell Residential Properties
THE BOOK ON ESTIMATING REHAB COSTS:
The Investor’s Guide to Defining Your Renovation Plan, Building Your Budget, and Knowing Exactly How Much It All Costs
I started this website 5 years ago, with the goal of tracking my foray into real estate investing and keeping me accountable for taking action and making progress with my real estate business. It quickly morphed into an educational platform for helping other up-and-coming investors get started with their real estate careers and even helping experienced investors take their business to the next level.
I’ve received over 10,000 comments, emails and private messages from my readers over the years, and the two most common themes among them are:
1. “I want to flip houses, but I don’t know where to start!” Whether it be new investors interested in flipping their first property or more experienced investors who can’t seem to consistently make a profit on their deals, it’s clear that people are looking for a step-by-step guide to finding, analyzing, buying, rehabbing and selling their next property.
2. “I’m terrified to make offers because I have no idea how much my rehab is going to cost!” One of the hardest parts of successfully flipping houses is understanding the process and the cost of renovations. Without a clear framework and a path to understanding the cost of completely basic repairs, it’s nearly impossible to be confident about your rehab project.
I initially sat down with a goal of writing a book that would solve these two needs. That book quickly turned into two separate books — one providing a step-by-step process for flipping houses and one providing a framework for defining and estimating the rehab portion of your projects.
After completing the manuscripts, I sat down with my friend Joshua Dorkin, founder of BiggerPockets.com, to discuss how best to make the books available. As it turned out, Josh was getting ready to launch his own publishing brand, and we decided to team up to make my two books the first two books in his “BiggerPockets Presents…” series of real estate investing books and guides.
The books are available in two formats — Digital PDF (eBook) and Paperback — and will available on both BiggerPockets.com and Amazon.com (Amazon orders will be starting April 8).
Whether you’re an up-and-coming investor looking to get started in this business, an experienced investor looking to hone your flipping skills or a fan of 123Flip.com who just wants to support my efforts over the past 5 years, I hope you’ll consider picking up a copy of my new books!
