There are plenty of things to consider before entering into a fix and flip property investment. When analyzing a deal, be sure to keep the fix and flip costs in mind:
The ARV of the property is the expected property worth after the repairs are complete. Investors can often get a good estimate on this by looking at comparables in the area. The ARV is a key value to use when determining what to offer on a property, as the purchase price plus rehab costs should still leave room for (hopefully significant!) profit upon sale.
This is the price that the investor actually paid for the property. It isn’t necessarily what the property is worth or was listed at, but what actually was paid.
These are the extra expenses that buyers and sellers pay for property at the closing of a real estate transaction. On average, closing fees cost around 2-5% of the property’s purchase price.
This is the total cost of acquiring a property, including the purchase price and the closing costs.
