I can't get my numbers to work for me!

4 Replies

Hi BP! I have a deal that I am looking at for a fix and flip, and every time I put in my numbers I am loosing money. I am being very conservative and have to use hard (expensive) money to do the rehab. Could someone take a look and give me a second opinion letting me know if I am missing something or if I am being too conservative with my numbers please? Thank you.

The reason why you can't get it to work, is because it doesn't work.  This isn't a deal.  You are correct when you say you will lose money.  Move on to the next opportunity.  This one is a "dog".

@Aaron Montague thanks for taking a look.  I did run the numbers at $150k, and I ran the numbers to see what was the highest I could go to be profitable and it was $158k, but this deal was brought to me by a wholesaler and they weren’t budging unfortunately. 

Unfortunately I don’t have any family with that kind of money. I am still looking for the deal that will work for me.
