Single-family residence fix & flip investment in St. Louis.
Purchase price: $120,000
Cash invested: $30,000
Sale price: $185,000
Purchased 3/1.5 from wholesaler. Updated kitchen and bathrooms, minor electric updates. Acted as general contractor and oversaw subs. This was my first deal, so I learned how to change out outlets and other minor electric work, as well as how to structure a deal and corresponding rehab from a mentor. I was a licensed real estate broker in Missouri at the time, so I handled the marketing and sale.

I learned a lot through the process, especially how both houses and deals are put together. I also learned the value of hiring out as much as work as I can afford, both in the ability to scale and the time value of money.
