    Good points. I think an extra word of caution is in order for flips… be careful. With banks tightening on loans and the average time a property on the market across the US is somthing like 75 days or so (I heard recently), I’d suggest rehabing a home you might also be able to profitably rent if worse came to worse.

    Great article, I couldn’t agree more. I have been flipping houses and 40 rental properties. I made all the mistakes on almost all of them, but the biggest tip I can give anyone is to control your labor and material expense.
