Who doesn't love watching those remodeling/flipping shows on HGTV, amiright? Here's your chance to learn how local house flippers (or as they like to call themselves, «residential redevelopers») and father/daughter team, Barlow and Brenna Brooks, have been able to take dated, run-down homes, and bring them back to life.
There's so much to the process of flipping homes that you don't see on TV — from deciding whether a property is worth it (and then how you're going to pay for it), creating a budget, figuring out what you're going to do to update it, dealing with unexpected issues, and then finally selling it. It's way more than the production companies can fit into a 22-minute show, that's for sure!
You'll learn what to look out for when evaluating a potential flip, how to read the local market and compare a property to the «finished» ones, how we pick out the design finishes, the behind-the-scenes of the renovation process, and anything else the class wants answered about house flipping. And, if you're just wanting to do some work to improve the value of your own home — at least 75% of this information is applicable to homeowners as well, it's not just for those wanting to invest in real estate. Homeowners can learn from this class, too!
Barlow and Brenna are both lifelong Louisvillians who stress quality in their work, consider the functionality of a home first, and are so proud of the homes that they've had the honor of remodeling. Strap on your tool belt and get ready to learn how to take a house from drab to fab!
The class includes a copy of the ebook «Shut Up and Flip A House Already», coauthored by Brenna and another flipper, Wendy Doris.
The book is about 100 pages and discusses the process of flipping houses from beginning to end: the good, the bad and the ugly. It's a great resource for those wanting to dip their toes into the house flipping world, but who just aren't quite sure how to get started — or for homeowners who want to put in some sweat equity to improve their home's value.
