What I do when I flip a house

It really is not that easy, so pay attention! : )

House flipping is when I buy a house to sell it again after I renovate it. Hopefully with a profit. So you make money by increasing the value of the house – selling it for more than you paid for it. If done right this can be very lucrative.

It is also easy to lose a lot of money though! That is why I always do extensive research and I make sure I have enough savings to take a hit if the market moves against me.

I also make a tight schedule and budget. And I work hard to stay within these boundaries (although I must admit, I often go slightly over budget).

But I think it is important to do careful planning and thorough calculations.

The real estate market

It is also important to know the local real estate market.

As they say: location location location. You can make the ugliest home a palace, but if noone wants to live there, you will never sell it for a good price. And you need to sell quick, because every month you don’t sell it  costs you dearly.

Next time I will write more on the real estate market. Hope you liked it so far.


Decastro Home Renovation

Hi! I am Jerry Decastro and I live to renovate homes. I love to make ugly houses beautiful : )

My company is based on the belief that comfort and looks are both of the utmost importance when it comes to your home. With every home renovation I do everything to make sure the house is comfortable and beautiful. I treat each home as if I were to live in it for the rest of my life. Of course I always make sure each job is done in time and within budget, but I never compromise on comfort and looks! As a result, all the houses I have renovated have led to satisfied buyers/customers. You can ask around!

On this blog I would like to share some of my knowledge and experience on house renovation/flipping.

Hope you like it!
