Is there a list of most things ever needed in a rehab?

6 Replies

Hi All, 

Is there a list anyone can share that has pretty much everything that may need to get done on a rehab? I just picked up a 6 unit and need to rehab it. It would be super helpful to have a gantt chart that I could create for each unit or the overall job and select from the list just what needs to be done, get it in the right order and then try to keep my GC on track. This will be my biggest project to date so I really want to get and stay organized. 

Thanks everyone. 

Typically for Gantt Schedules I only schedule the major items and don't get into the details of each project task...

I wanted to say thank you also, David. While I've done quite a bit of rehab on my rentals, I've been trying to find my first flip. While I was looking, I was wondering, what do you do first, etc. This is a big help!

My compliments to you too David for taking the time to share your great list.  Jeb, I would also recommend taking Karen's advice about the two books she mentioned (sţill available on this site I believe).
