After You’re In Contract… Should You Flip or Hold?

By on July 1, 2015

Which is the best real estate investment strategy?  Buy and hold?  Fix and flip?  Wholesale?

Interestingly, a lot of business takes place before you ever need to decide.  No matter what your exit strategy, the lead generation, seller contact, and offer presentation are going to look exactly the same.  It’s not until you get an offer accepted that you actually reach a fork in the road.

On this episode Matt reminds listeners why the best way to grow their portfolios quickly and efficiently is not to get stuck on any particular exit strategy, but rather to be flexible and nimble investors.

 What You’ll Learn:

  • How one listener recently secured a 144% cash on cash return on a deal.
  • The 3 steps that you must take before anything else even matters.
  • How to know if you should buy and hold a property or flip it.
  • The 2 variables that help you determine your exit strategy.
  • Exactly how Matt approaches each deal; and
  • Why this approach favors the 3-Option Letter of Intent.
  • The reason you must identify your minimum deal standards.
  • The additional decision you must make when deciding to flip a house.
