I am currently flipping 16 houses, and have flipped over 150 houses in my career. I have learned a lot over the years and put all of it into a house flipping book: Fix and Flip Your Way to Financial Freedom. While I do not know everything about flipping, I have learned a lot about financing, finding, repairing, and selling fix and flips. In the book, I go over everything I have learned without holding anything back. The book is available on Amazon as a paperback, eBook, and audiobook.
Can you learn how to flip houses from a book?
Fix and flipping is not easy and it is not something that will make you rich working a couple of hours a week. You need to dedicate a lot of time to learning your market, finding deals, building a team, getting financing, saving money and deciding what to repair. The first flips are usually a reality check for most people in how much work is involved in fix and flipping. Just like anything new, most people are not going to be good at it until they have personal experience. This book will reduce the learning curve when learning to fix and flip homes and will provide insight on how to build a big fix and flipping business. It cannot teach you everything about flipping, but many things you can only learn from experience.
Is my house flipping book any good?
I have read many real estate books. Some are great and some are not so great. I am not a professional writer, but a house flipper who tries to help others learn the business. While my book may not be as eloquent as others, I pack it full of as much information as I can. It is not a lead tool meant to get you excited about flipping houses so you will buy my $30,000 real estate course. I do not have one of those. The book has been professionally edited and I have had close to 100 reviews on Amazon. Most people who read my book love it.
“I am finishing up your excellent book Fix & Flip Your Way to Financial Freedom. I have probably read 6 fix & flip books over the past 6 months and your book is one of the best I have read.” -Art
“Great book. Easy read. I have been flipping for 3 years and I am always looking for more knowledge. This book gave me some new strategies and ideas and was also motivating. I am looking forward to getting the rental book as well.”
“I like Mark’s style of writing. Very conversational yet full of great information. There were some really good nuggets in here. I especially like the section on finding a good agent. How do you know you have a good agent? Read chapter 34!”
How much money can you make fix and flipping homes?
Do not come into the house flipping business expecting to make $50,000 or $100,000 on each fix and flip. It happens, but it is very rare and usually, the properties that produce big profits are the riskiest properties. If you want to fix and flip a few homes a year, I think a $25,000 profit on each flip is a realistic figure if you know what you are doing. It is also possible to lose money on a fix and flip, which I have done a couple of times. Sometimes I miscalculated the after repaired value, or my repair figure was low or something else prevented the house from selling that was completely out of my control.
It can take a while to build up your business to where you are doing more than one flip at a time. It can take 6 months to complete a house flip, which means you may sell 2 a year when first starting.
