Get In On The "Fix and Flip" Market


l. Order a dumpster for the next ten days and get your demolition man to throw out everything including the kitchen sink. In other words, clear the decks.  ( With the right Demo people, it could be done quicker! )


2. After the house is cleared of debris, it’s time to patch and paint. Let your painters blast the place with their airless paint-spraying arsenal inside and out. Within three days, you’ll have added a huge improvement to your investment. This is the biggest dollar-for-dollar return you can make. Make sure that quality paint is used. “When it comes to painting,” Dan Auito, author of “Complete Home Rehab in 10 Days,” says, “it’s the labor that kills you, not the material. If possible, insist on Sherwin Williams Super Paint. It is a miracle-type formula that covers up bullet holes without any patching compound and it lasts forever. It’s worth every penny; insist on it.”


3. After the painters leave, the flooring guys can lay tile and carpet, which will take two to three days.

                ( Wood floors might be a good option too! )


4. Next bring in the cabinet installers and handyman plumber.

5. Last comes light fixtures, vanities, toilets, sinks, doors, switch plates and outlet covers.


Get creative with your Fix and Flip project. There are varieties of lighting, vanities and doors that can and will catch the eye of a buyer! Unique tile in the bathroom shower or upscale cabinets in the kitchen might just be what a prospective buyer could be looking for. You can check out your local Home Depot or mom and pop shop for some idea's!
