First flip- order of things (contractor meet) etc

1 Reply

I am looking into getting my first flip property soon.

I was wondering if I should have my contractor walk a few properties with me before I get a property under contract or if I should have the deal first based on my own rehab assumptions? 

You’d definitely want a contractor walk the property with you so you can get a feel from their perspective and you can learn a bit more from then. They would also give you a more realistic rehab number. Sometimes rehabs are priced high as an estimate and then a contractor would bring it down to a lower number that wouldn’t scare you.
