I have written five eBooks over the last couple of years. It was a lot of fun writing the books, but a lot of work as well! Up to this point I have only had my books available as a PDF on my shop or as a Kindle eBook. Many of you have asked if I have my books available as paperbacks and I previously have not had the time to figure out how to do that. Over the last couple of months I was able to make it happen with the help of my amazing team.
Why is flipping houses a great way to make money?
I have been flipping houses since 2001 and have flipped well over 100 houses in my career. Over the last year or two I have been flipping many more houses and building my business bigger and bigger. The reason I love flipping is because it is fun and you can make a lot of money. Over the years I have averaged just about $30,000 profit on each flip. I am also starting to believe I am addicted to buying houses. I love to get great deals and I love knowing I can buy multiple great deals that will make me a lot of money.
Is it harder to flip now that the market is better?
A lot of investors have told me the golden age of flipping is over, because there are not as many deals available. Back in 2008 to 2012 you could find a ton of deals that could be flipped in most parts of the country. It was not extremely hard to find those deals and many people made money flipping. I made good money during that time as well, but I have done just as well since the housing market has recovered and I did well before the housing crisis as well.
I am located in Colorado, which has one of the highest appreciating markets in the country and I have ten flips going right now. It simply is not true that you cannot flip in a hot market. I am not betting on appreciation when I flip either. I see many investors sacrificing their profit margins in order to compete in hot markets, but that is not necessary either. If you know how to find deals, you can find them in any market and it is a lot of fun knowing you are getting great deals and making money, while other investors are complaining that it is impossible to flip right now.
What is Fix and Flip Your Way to Financial Freedom about?
I think it is pretty obvious what the book is about, but here are a few of the topics included:
- How to find flips
- How to finance flips
- How to repair flips
- How to sell flips
- How to find contractors
- How to great deals on houses whether they are flips or rentals
The book is a great resource for investors looking to start flipping homes, looking to flip more homes or who are really trying to ram up their flipping business.
What are my future plans for books?
I have many other books on my author page, but I am also writing a brand new rental property book that will also be available in paperback form. This book should be ready in about a month or so. The really exciting news is that J Scott and I are writing a book together as well, which should be out late in 2016. It should be an exciting year as far as writing goes and I think providing paperback versions of my books will help me reach a much wider audience.
I hope you enjoy the book and please leave me a review if you do like it! The more reviews I get the, more people will see the book and the more people I can help. They don’t teach this stuff in schools and too many people have no idea what real estate investing is all about.
