    I am familiar with rehab, I have personal done acting like a general contractor and coordinate everything the way I want. Also like to choose the material myself not the contractor, starting with going to home depot and investigate price and then go other stores if you need better material, but a list you have an idea where to start with price and what available in the market.

    I was curious to see how the presentation would go, and I think he did a very good job pin pointing everything it need to be done and explaining, why you would make one choice or an other based on if you would rent or sell. I usually choose good material if the difference is not to much, even to rent when people come to my apartment I want them to feel they want what they see, I also charge a little bit more and they pay
    for it. But you have more choices of potential tenants at the end is worth.
    Again the presentation was great , I never had seen this type of presentation on the web.

  7. This was very informative. Thank you.

    Interesting video. However, I found it to be more of a home inspection video then I did a video on estimating the cost of a complete, or partial rehab project. Just saying.

  10. The tour was very interesting and the tips seem practical. I believe that he should have made an attempt to look under the crawlspace for water or termite damage. The tips were great.

    I have been dealing with rental property for 17 years. However, we alway buy and hold. I really thought you did a great job and I am going to pass this on to a newly out of college student that is going to be doing my old job. I quit to own my own business. I believe you will help him understand things perfectly. Once again Great Job.

  12. I like the presentation alot. Very informative and easy to watch. I would have liked to hear about some systems like furnace, water heater and electrical to evaluate if they were still useable or needed to be replaced. Nice Job Phil

  13. I am thinking about purchasing a rehab home for future investment. This video had great tips and techniques that I would never have thought of otherwise. Knowing more structural things to make note of would be nice too such as warped floors, sagging roof, uneven walls etc. Or how to have idea of a structural wall vs a wall that could be torn down. Thanks for posting your video. I’ll put your tips to work during the walk through.

  14. I would have liked a quick walk through at the end of the video showing the estimated repair cost of each item and then maybe a comparison to the cost of the actual repairs. Otherwise, this was a very informative inspection of the house.

What do you think? We would love to hear your opinion.
